My Makeup Bag - Winter 2017

Drug Store Strong

You don't have to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks! These are five of our favorite drugstore beauty products. They are perfect hacks for gorgeous glam without breaking the bank. First is the “Maybelline Precise Fiber Volumizing Eye Brow Gel". With just the right amount of hold and color, it is easily a must have brow product. We've been keeping the "Garnier SkinActive Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller" a secret for a very long time! Keep one in the fridge to really wake up eyes and depuff every morning. For the lashes, we love the "L'Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara" because of it's flexible brush and no flake formula. The "No.7 Beautifully Matte Foundation" is just that, a beautiful matte natural finish that really does well with long wear. Everyone struggles to find the perfect blush for everyday use. This Covergirl Cheekers Blush in "Brick Rose" is the perfect balance of pink and brown, giving you a pretty glow, great for any look. Hope you enjoy these fabulous drugstore beauty finds!

  1. Mario Badescu Facial Spray. I always start and end with this refreshing rosewater spritz! It calms redness, prepares the skin, and sets your makeup. $16
  2. Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick. (Shade: Flesh) I love this lipstick! It feels like a lip balm! You don't need a liner with it, as it never bleeds. This shade is the perfect pop of pink! $36
  3. Anastasia Brow Powder. (Shade: Taupe) Brows are really important but you don't want them to steal your show. This powder is my go-to because it fills in your brows without looking artificial. $23
  4. Trish McEvoy High Volume Mascara. I've spent my whole life looking for a mascara that doesn't clump, flake, or create raccoon eyes. This is it! $31.50
  5. Lush Fresh Handmade Colour Eyeshadow (Shade: Sophisticated) These shadows are amazing! They don't smudge, crease, or disappear. Simply blend onto your eyelid with your fingertips. I wear this shade everyday, it goes with any blush or lipstick shade. $19.95
  6. Giorgio Armani CC cream. This is hands down the best CC cream in the industry! It brightens dark spots, corrects redness, and has the coverage of a foundation, yet looks like your own skin. $55
  7. Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour. (Shade: Rosebud) Spring is all about a healthy rosey glow! I use cream blush because powders tend to get blotchy on my sensitive skin throughout the day. Simply tap a tiny bit onto your cheekbones until it melts into your complexion. $26
  8. The lip scrub by Sara Happ. Even the driest lips can't stand up to this sugar scrub! It's mess free and delicious! Leaves your lips silky smooth with jojoba and grape seed oils. $24
