Why spend so much on high end products when these drugstore finds are just as good?!
Hey all you beauty gurus and makeup lovers, those high end brands don’t want you to know this but you really don’t have to spend that much to get that perfect look!
We all know the struggle of finding beauty products that not only have good quality, but are affordable too. Lucky for you, I did some research on what products you can find in the drugstore that are basically identical to what you would find in Sephora!
First off, you’ll want to apply a primer to smooth out your skin and be a base for the products you’re about to apply. This helps the product not seep too much into your skin, preventing break outs, and it also makes your makeup last longer through the day.
The high end product: Benefit POREfessional Face Primer
The next step is foundation, which can be the most difficult and annoying part of the shopping and applying process.
For this post I chose to work with liquid foundations because that is what I personally use and it has become more popular now than ever.

Concealer is such a tiny piece of a makeup look but sometimes it can be the most important! Like when you overslept and want to hide those designer bags under your eyes, right?
The high end product: M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer
The dupe: Maybelline FIT Me! Concealer
To set all your face makeup into place and buff it out, use a nude or translucent powder!

Brows, brows, brows. A very key component to an every day look. Having your brows done just gives you that, ‘I have my life together’ feeling!

Eyeshadow time! Everyone loves having a nice selection of some basic shades and shimmers. Find what works for you for an every day look or for a bold, dramatic vibe!

Whether you take a risk and try a wing or just keep it simple, eyeliner is a great way to make your eyes pop. Liner is fun because you can make it look as casual or as bold as you wish!

Of course, you have to make that perfect contour! Using a palette of different shades is great because you can play around with different combos to see what you like best!

For the final touch, a fun lip color is a must! Lately, the favorites are liquid lipsticks. A nice liquid lipstick that won’t dry out your lips and has lasting color can be hard to find, but we’ll all eventually find one we love!
