We all worry about the price of items we use on a daily basis. For me , one of those products is my makeup. When I realized at around 8pm that my makeup bag wasn’t in my bag and I had an appointment early in the morning, I was a bit upset as I had to buying the entire set for a small sum of money and I decided to go to the drug shop instead. I’m not a professional make cosmetics artist. However , I’ve spent more than 20 years working in the beauty industry , so I consider myself to be a beauty expert/addict. On special occasions as well as for photo shoots, I have experienced the services of the top makeup artists around the globe. My best Milani Cosmetics reviewed bag is comprised of all brands from department stores. What happens to a makeup professional who needs to buying cosmetics at a drugstore? You are frustrated… what’s the reason? There were no testers. The feeling of being able to walk between aisles and choose from a variety of brands was very enjoyable. In an department store can be an issue because they only give the customer a look, and then you must decide, or have the counter representatives decide who will call it up. My mistake is to your advantage since I will show you the incredible things I came across for less than $10.00.
Foundations are the most crucial step and is the hardest to locate, so if you do this incorrectly, it is usually downhill from here. I’m in need of a small amount of coverage, however I require foundation can be built to give greater coverage. My foundation of choice is L’Oreal True Match ($8.79) and Black Opal True Color Foundation ($8.95) Both are oil-free. They were also very easy to apply, excellent wearability, and a nice selection of shades, and I was able to find one that matched my color and complemented my undertone. Make sure you buy several (remember that there aren’t any testers). Many drug stores will let you return the unopened package with receipt. I was able to return any of my purchases. The concealer was so tough and it was itchy that made my eyes appear like an Raccoon. Therefore, I tried Black Opal True Color Creme Stick ($9.50) and Max Factor Pan-Stik Ultra Creamy Makeup ($7.49). Both were a great choice and complemented my foundation for flawless makeup.
For setting my face, I discovered Milani Pressed Cosmetics ($5.49) with 8 different shades, which gives the perfect smooth matte look. Apply it with a loose powder brush to ensure long-lasting wear. To create that natural blush shade on the cheek, I was awestruck by Revlon Matte Powder Blush ($9.99) It was extremely soft and blends easily. I also applied it to add a bit of shade to my eyelid. For highlighting or as an eyeshadow or makeup bronzer Milani Bronzer the XL All Over Glow ($4.79) is an amazing.
Don’t waste money on high-end pencil eyeliners. The finest are available at the drug stores. Prestige Colors’ Classic Khol Liners ($4.29) offer rich, strong color. Eyes are soft and smooth, but they are and vibrant in color. I like my eyes to be simple , but I do put a touch of color on my style. Max Factor MAXeye Shadows ($4.99) are amazing because for three colors that are trendy. They are easy to blend and remain in place. It is possible to apply MAXeye Shadows dry for a smooth, silky day-time look or apply them wet to create a more dramatic look in the evening.
False Eye Lashes are amazing and will enhance your look without much effort. They are by far the best. Andrea Modlash ($2.96) #21 and #53 are an excellent option not just for people who have lost their eyelashes as well as for everyone looking to highlight their eyes. They’re light and natural with a short length overall and moderate density. Every person should buy their Mascara from a drugstore. They are affordable; consequently, you’ll be able to change the product every three to four months (to stop eye irritations due to bacteria). I like Maybelline’s Colossal Volum Express ($7.49) provides a huge volume, with no lumps. I love the length that it offers. It’s not a flake and is easy to remove. If you would like your eyebrows to appear good all the time, consider applying Eyebrow stencils. They can be used to form or fill in, lighten or darken. Try Fran Wilson Instant Brows Arched ($3.29). It’s an improvement. clear of pencils that create sharp lines. Use makeup powder instead.
Lipstick is another essential item to buying at the drugstore. I believe Max Factor Vivid Impact Lip Color ($8.97) was just right for the right track. The shea butter moisturizes the lips to make them look lovely and soft. The shades are available in twenty, with the matching lip liner. Another option is the classic lipsticks from Prestige Cosmetics ($4.99) Nice selection of 36 shades which make my lips appear smooth.
In the Prestige section, I bought Prestige Cosmetics Vinyl Wear Lip Gloss ($4.99). It has a nice shine, without that stringy, gummy texture that is often associated when you use lip gloss. I also purchased the L’Oreal Color Juice ($7.95) made from the company who makes the Juicy Tubes from Lancome for an additional ten dollars.
The Bottom Line
My final makeup bill at the drug store was $71.72 against. $330.50 (savings $258.78) in the event that I had to replace my makeup with the department store. After you’ve taken care of your exterior the inside, my last suggestion is to never forget that beauty begins with the mind.
