Full Face Drugstore Tutorial


Ain’t no shame in my drugstore game. I feel like the drugstore sector is really upping it’s own game, with some products hanging with some of the higher-end goods! There has been a lot of advancement and innovation in drugstore makeup in the last few years and your options are getting juicier all the time. I wanted to create a full face tutorial using drugstore products for my ballers on a budget or for those who live in areas in which a Sephora or Ulta is not accessible. Plus, at these prices, I mean what’s not to love?!

This look is a little dramatic and bit glam-I mean the lip color is purple. I will describe it as “not-a-man-favorite.” Do you know what I mean by that? I love dark lips, bright lips, unconventional lip colors. But do you know who does not love those colors? Most men I know. Meh, that’s ok! I have many years ahead of me to wear men-friendly nudes.

Check out the tutorial video for info on why I like each product and see how I created this look, step by step. xoxo

      I have SUPER dry skin, Jan so I’m planning a dry skin post! I did my mom’s makeup and she certainly isn’t wrinkle-free (just ask her-she’ll tell you!) Miss seeing you at Sephora! I make house calls though!
