The Best Drugstore Makeup Ever! Part 1: Face

We can all agree that there is something deeply satisfying about saving money, no matter how minor the amount. That's because knowing you're getting what you need for cheaper, for even pennies less, is a triumph.
Now imagine snagging your beloved beauty essentials for a fraction of the price. 

Now that's something to be excited about. The only thing better than falling in love with a beauty product, in our view? Falling hard for a total bargain. That's just what we've done here, a 4 part series, not only can they transform your beauty routine for the better, but they will also transform your bank account! 

Best Drugstore Primer: Now technically this is not a primer, per say.. But hey it gets the job done and won't break the bank! Ladies I'm talking about Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder Gel Skin ProtectantOoh, that's a mouth full, but if you really think about it this gel has about the same properties that other primers have like its a soft silicone base that dries to a matte finish that prolongs your makeup especially does well for oily skin.

Best Drugstore Foundation: 
I'm sure we've all heard about the Revlon Colorstay Foundation, which deserves all the praise and then some. This full coverage foundation gives an amazing finish to the skin without looking cakey.  The matte formula is great for combination/oily & normal/dry skin, but work quickly in applying as it dries fast.  The best part of this foundation is there’s tons of shades to choose from! As an added bonus this foundation is also a dupe for MAC's Studio Fix Fluid and only costing half the price.

Best Drugstore Blemish Concealer: Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer, is a heavy duty, highly pigmented, multi-use concealer that delivers ultimate coverage. The formula blends seamlessly onto your skin with plenty of play time creating flawless and natural look perfect for any occasion. A little goes a long way people & you can hide everything from dark circles, hyper pigmentation, scars tattoos, and anything else for that matter, you get the idea! 

Best Drugstore Face Powder: Although face powder doesn't usually sound so exciting as other beauty products, but are a staple in our beauty routines and for that reason Rimmel Stay Matte Powder stands out for me. Perfect for setting your under eye concealer and around your T-zone. Perfect for oily/combination/normal skin gals but be warned for our dryer skin girls out there as powders do they have a tendency to enhance our drier areas! 

Best Drugstore Under Eye Concealer: Most people mistake this under eye concealer as a blemish concealer but it really does wonders for your eyes.

The Maybelline Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer is a great under eye brightener. As it doesn't settle into fine lines and since it has highlighting qualities you can use it to highlight down the bridge of your nose, center of the forehead, on the cupid's bow, on the chin. Blending effortlessly and it'll last all day.

Best Drugstore Bronzer: Let a little sunshine into your life on the cheap, with the NYC bronzer in Sunny it glides on easily and can be perfect for touch ups throughout the day. With a beautifully healthy glow without looking orange or muddy in any way which is near to impossible to find in a bronzer! While being an amazing dope for the popular Benefit Hoola bronzer.

Best Drugstore Blush: Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso I have actually love Milani and when I tried their baked blush, I fell in love! But my absolute favorite would have to be the Luminoso it's a gorgeous shade of peachy pink that mimics the look of natural flush beautifully. And not to worry if you have a bit of a heavy hand you can rest easy knowing that it's pretty much impossible to get overly blush cheeks with this subtle color.
