When I first started wearing makeup I only wore mascara and eyeliner. I would go to my local Rite Aid and buy a liquid eyeliner by Almay and the classic mascara by maybelline. I had gotten so use to buying drugstore products and I really loved them.The older I got the more products I began to try. Although I do splurge on a few products the drugstore will always be my go to place! I have put together a list of some of my old favs and new raves. How do you feel about drugstore products?

Maybe you like something that is travel friendly, and another girl doesn't care for that. No matter what your preference is I have compiled a list of the most raved about brush cleansers for you.

Eyeshadow base is essential for your makeup look. There are several types for you to choose from but these are my top 4 picks. My most used would be #3 MAC concealer, whenever I want a subtle soft look I use the concealer all over my lid. This technique can crease if you have oily lids or if you apply a thick layer. I would suggest using urban decay primer potion then apply the concealer over your eyelid using your ring finger. Nars smudge proof eyeshadow base is another great one for those of you who have oily lids or accidentally wipe your eyes smearing your makeup. This would word great on your eyebrows as well. Take a small bit on your fingers and lightly massage over your eyebrows before doing your brows to keep them in place ALL DAY! This next one is a bit newer and it's by one of my favorite beauty brands LIME CRIME !!! I absolutely love the packaging for all their products. The quality of their products are just as amazing. Lime crime's waterproof eyeshadow base will make your makeup POP and last until your ready to remove it. This product is a new holy grail makeup bag product. Lastly, we have NYX eyeshadow base. If you are on a budget or just don't like to splurge on makeup, then this is the product for you. NYX makeup is budget friendly and the quality is mind blowing. We all have heard you get what you pay for, but this product will change your perception. It will Magnificently intensify your eyeshadows and is long lasting. What more can you ask for ?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and your wallet. Women spend about $15,000 on beauty products according to Mint. What if i told you that you can actually save money buying beauty products, while getting some for free. Yes for free! You can try out new products without wasting money on something you can't return. I'm sure you've been there, you buy a pricey beauty product to try out. Once you go home and try it out you hate it, but now that you've opened it you can't return it. If you want to know how I get free samples of beauty products ...
Valentine's day is right around the corner, and there is nothing better than preparation. We know it's very traditional to wear a red lip, but this is simply classic. NO ONE can go wrong with a red lip, there is so much controversy about what complexions should wear red lipstick. No matter if you are fare skinned or a dark skinned we all can wear red lippies. The only question you have to ask your self is what do you prefer, personally I love a matte finish. I hardly ever wear anything with a sheen or satin finish, however I do enjoy actual lipsgloss. To many of you this may not make any sense. Moving on, we have also added some awesome beauty tips for you guys below to try out and switch things up a bit. Enjoy bravettes !

Kylie has had everyone wondering about her beauty secrets. Last year she revealed her secret to her plump lips, and now she has let another one out the bag. If the picture wasn't obvious enough, her latest beauty tip is on how to get the perfect lash effect. Ready ? Kylie swears by Eyeko Black Magic Mascara and the Alexa Chung Lash Enhancing Eye Do Liner ! The picture above may be falsies, but by looking at all the positive reviews on these 2 products I think I'll take her word for it. Some said that the product doesn't come off with ease, but who doesn't love a long lasting mascara. Many others raved about how lengthening it makes your lashes, how smoothes it goes on, and NO CLUMPS! Then I hit you with the price of $24 for this mascara, but you always have the option to bid on eBay. If you don't mind splurging on your new favorite mascara then head over to Net-A-Porter now, because it's all sold out on Sephora. Don't worry we didn't forget about the liner, we also checked out reviews on that as well. One of the most important thing about liner is the pigment, and apparently this liner is very pigmented! The felt tip on this liner makes it easy to apply the perfect cateye. Lastly, you can enjoy not having to reapply your liner because it's longlasting and waterproof! If you are interested in trying out the eyeliner you can purchase it for $19 with FREE shipping on Nordstrom.
Nails are every girls weakness right up there with shoes. If you are a busy lady like myself, then you don't always have that extra pampering time to get your nails done. Thanks to the creative geniuses who invented nail decals we can do our own nails in less than 10 minutes. You can apply nail decals right before work, school, or any social gathering and still be on time. All you need to apply the nail decals are a buffer, nail file, and a topcoat. There are many pre-made nail decal designs you can choose from, but I think personalizing your nails is much better. NCLA now has a new free app that allows you to create your own nail decals using any picture, design, or drawing you want. Once you decide on your nail design simply choose a style, upload your images, and place your order right from your smartphone. Shipping is completely free all you have to pay for is the nail decal. To spice things up I would add rhinestones or even a chain on top of my nail decals once they are applied. If you decide to download the app, please send us your pictures of your customized nails! We can't wait to see what you all come up with.

My new favorite affordable beauty products series will blow you guys away. We all want items that or of quality and affordable, I mean let's face it, if you are wearing YSL lipstick who really knows ? There are so many dupes out there for "high end" lipsticks. I would rather get 20 different shades of lipstick for $30, than to spend $30 on 1 lipstick. There is this stigma about lipsticks that are budget friendly, and that is that there aren't good quality. Many people even believe that if it's cheap it won't last all day, or it won't be moisturizing. What if I told you that there are many lip products that are less than $15, last all day, give you great coverage, and keep your lips moisturized ! These are my personal fave lipsticks you must try !
Makeup is such an amazing practice, you can become someone new with the freedom to create whatever look you want. You can achieve a slimmer looking nose, higher cheek bones, or give yourself a tan. Makeup is art, and we are the artist. A talent not many can relate to, people call you fake, and discredit your true beauty. You may have had someone tell you or someone else that they don't look as good without their makeup. We are already beautiful, all of us, and what makeup does is enhance those features we already have. MAKE cosmetics is something you as the amazing artist you are should have in your kit, and a way to collaborate with other creatives. Make cosmetics is made right here in the US, specifically Long Island, New York. The designer of this line had the amazing idea to collaborate with creatives such as film makers, gamers, designers, and modern color artist. The products are inspired by things like medieval paintings, greek mythology, and more.We just had to cover this brand for the simple fact they have broken the traditional rules of the beauty world. The most important thing is that whenever you purchase any product from the line, 33.3% of your purchase goes towards the We See Beauty foundation.
