Real Techniques Brushes I love my Real Techniques face brush kit. The buffing brush blends my foundation flawlessly! After using these brushes, my makeup feels so weightless!

Covergirl Lipstick Covergirl lipstick is very smooth and creamy, it’s definitely a great drugstore lpstick!
L’Oreal Pro Infallible Foundation I have yet to try this foundation but I have heard wonderful things from beauty bloggers and vloggers about this foundation! Once I can figure out my color, I really want to try it!
Real Techniques Blending Sponge If you are looking for a dupe for the Beauty Blender then you will die for the Real Techniques blending sponge! It’s just about the same except it has a flat edge, which can be more helpful it getting your under eye area!

E.L.F. Eye Shadow Palette This palette has 144 colors from sultry neutrals to popping neons! Any color you need, this eye shadow palette will have you covered!
NYX Contour Palette There are so many contour palettes out nowadays and many seem to be on the more expensive side. However this one is relatively inexpensive, compared to other palettes. It is $25 for eight shades. You can also get the shades individually!
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation This is my go-to foundation! I use the Matte and Poreless version {not pictured above} and it is very light on the skin. It is a medium coverage foundation and the Matte and Poreless lives up to its name!

Maybelline Gel Liner  Maybelline’s gel eyeliner is very smooth and my favorite eyeliner. It goes on smooth and stays all day!

Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara This mascara is my favorite drugstore mascara! It doesn’t clump and it gives my lashes volume! It is a very good value!

NYX Wonder Stick The NYX Wonder Stick is a very popular product. I have yet to be able to get my hands on it! However, it is a dual sided stick, one with a highlighting side and one with a contouring side. They have three shades; light, medium, dark, and a universal shade!

Sometimes you just have to save on makeup, and there is nothing wrong with that! Drugstore makeup is my favorite, especially as a broke college student! However, there are some high end products that I love! If you’re looking for a higher end beauty guide, head on to the higher end gift guide!
