I love love LOOOOOVE finding something inexpensive that rivals the more expensive makeup brands. I struggle with extra dry skin, (not so 😂) fine lines and noticeable pores so it’s hard to find makeup from anywhere much less from the drugstore that works with my skin! I’ve gone through so many brands over the years so here’s a list of my favorite budget beauty finds! 💋
6. Maybelline Master Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner
($6.99 in black) Guys this eyeliner is the bomb! 💥 It’s so easy to apply and so inexpensive and I feel like it lasts forever! It’s extremely similar to my favorite Stila liner, but at a fraction of the cost!
If you don’t have a steady hand, or you’re not sure you have the ability to create the perfect “cat eye” then this would be a great product to practice with. It’s a really great beginner liquid liner!
I LOVE me a “cat eye” I dont care if that style comes and goes it’s always going to be my favorite! It feels so classic and its so so so cute!
5. Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara
($7.99 in black) I ❤️ this mascara. Honestly I always go back to this one, even after trying and loving more expensive brands.
I’m not a fan of waterproof, I hate smudging and heaven forbid flaking! 😵🙈 Well, this mascara doesn’t do anything like that, and it makes my lashes look really long!
It’s so easy to take off at night too; no harsh scrubbing because who needs any help with their crows feet?!! 🤷🏼♀️
Pro Tip: Go get a lash curler right now! It makes a WORLD of difference with any mascara!
4. L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation
($7.79 in shades 203 or 204 depending on the season) I hate most foundations (well, I guess my skin hates them) but this is the best drugstore foundation that I’ve ever found!
I have dry skin and larger pores and this foundation still manages to look great on my skin! It doesn’t settle in my fine lines and pores like a lot of drugstore foundations!
If you like a matte look this also comes in pro matte formula that’s awesome too! I need a little help glistening sooooo that’s why I chose Pro-Glow!
3. Salon Perfect On Point Tri-Tip Brow Marker
($4.48 in universal taupe) This is so cool, it makes perfect looking hair strokes. I use this on the inside of my brows and a pencil on the middle and outside edges for a sharp but natural look!
I’ve thought about getting my brows microbladed for a while but until that happens I like using this. It gives a really similar look. (without all the pain and money haha) So definitely try this if you have sparse eyebrows!
Eyebrows are really important to the overall makeup look. It took me a long time to realize my face needed eyebrows haha! My brows are really light and because of my overplucking teenage years ( thank you early 2000’s 🙄) they’re really sparse, so I need all the makeup help in the brow department!
2. NYX Wonder Pencil
($4.49 in light) If you feel like you look tired or your eyes are too dark and undefined in pictures try a white eyeliner. I use this on the bottom waterline and inner corners of my eyes for a brighter and more youthful look. 💁🏼
It’s a really creamy formula so it doesn’t tug at your skin it just glides on really smoothly. It’s also super easy to smudge with your finger to blend it with whatever eye makeup you already have on!
1. The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer
($7.80, also comes in matte) This isn’t technically a “drugstore find” but it’s still super inexpensive and so amaaaaaazing. You can get this on beautylish.com or deciem.com for less than $8 bucks and it feels so similar to POREfessional by benefit. I can’t believe it!
Beware it definitely does NOT smell that great (aka it really stinks!), but for the price and how amazing it is, who cares! We don’t need fragrance in our skincare anyways!
And there are my top 6 drugstore favorites! I hope some of you will give these products a try and maybe come to love them as much as I do! 💖 If you have any questions about these products or have any topic requests please let me know in the comments!!
