Drugstore Neutral Makeup Look ♥

Most of the time when using makeup, I end up using products I’ve purchased at Sephora or Ulta. What most people don’t know is that when you start off with makeup you don’t need to use high end products. Sometimes drugstore products are actually better than the high end version, believe it or not!

I decided to create a look using only drugstore products so that you guys can see the results. It looks exactly like it would even if I used high end products 🙂 Most of these products are holy grail products that I continue to repurchase because they are just that good!
