I know us little ladies always want to be putting our BEST FACE FORWARD, and there’s a certain confidence that comes along with starting your day in your most couture make up..however in this economy, even the greatest fashionistas are having the find amazing alternatives that fit not only our color shades but espcially in our budgets! These are my personal “must have” drug store products you’ll never see my kit without. (and that will most definietly be joining me on my ridiculously awesome adevnture this weekend..stay posted for details!)
This has been a product my Mom has sworn by for over 30 years…and she’s living proof it works well and is beneficial to our skin! (Barely has a noticable wrinkle to date!) It removes eye make up, (including waterproof mascara) and deposits amazing mositure into that super sensitive eye area skin. Its soap-less, and is almost the texture of vasaline (but won’t clog your pores like vasaline has known to do). Apply to the eye area, and remove with a soft facial tissue or round cotton. I seriously intend on using this product for the rest of my life!
I remember many moons ago while in cosmetology school, we were doing an in depth class on make up..and this product was spotlighted. I have had it in my make up kit every since..I find myself straying away to try the “latest and greatest” but always find myself returning to my trusty ColorStay! It has a broad selection of colors, easy application, great lasting coverage through the day (even for my combination skin) and it photographs well! I even included it in my review of FOUNDATIONS in my MMM a few weeks back. 🙂
Another great Mama-passed down secret that I adore! This creamy concealer goes on smooth and has coverage that is very comparable to much more expensive products! It lasts forever and I use it daily! 🙂
Good ole trusty basic mascara that almost every make up bag find a home in. Why? Because it delivers great results for an unbeatable price! I love that the wand is so basic, and is able to bend to make application costomized to my needs. With the SHELF LIFE (or lack of) for mascara, this bargin makes even more sense. I always go for Blackest Black in waterproof for my every day lashes. 🙂
For my personal daily, dramatic eye look my “go to” is always a blacker than black liner. Ive tried MANY liquid liners (even more expensive brands) only to be disappointed. I look for true, trusty color that stays in place and has an easy application. This is the only liner Ive continually been in love with!
I hope these suggestions help! I’d LOVE to know what any of your budget make up must haves are..gotta help one another out in these times.
To being kind AND budget friendly,
