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!

No Makeup, Makeup ♥

Anyone who knows me, know I love a full face of makeup. Although this is true, there are times that I get lazy or I’m in a rush or just simply want to give my skin a little break from makeup. In this instance, I usually go to my no makeup, makeup look!

It’s such a perfect, simple, and clean look that you can do for school or work if you wanted to. For those of you who don’t wear much makeup or are just beginning, this is actually perfect for you! Keep in mind something like this is supposed to look natural, so although it may look full coverage on camera, it isn’t.

I tried to use products that have helpful qualities like the Argan Oil from the Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer and the Maracuja Oil from the Tarte Concealer, that way your skin is breathing and taking in good oils at the same time!

To see how I applied these products, watch the video below! I hope you enjoy it and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe,  like, comment, and of course share with your friends and family.

Ps. I love chatting with you guys so please feel free to leave me comments! I always answer back 🙂
