My Fave Beauty Products: Drug Store and High End

Sunday, October 13

By Andrea Nolen

Hi! Just in case you were wondering, I'm extremely passionate about makeup. I've been dabbling in the realm of makeup since I was about twelve, so I know better than anyone that it can be really hard to find products you love. Especially if you're just starting out. Hopefully, I can give you a few recommendations to help you out if you're one of the babes that fall in that boat. A few of these items are a little on the pricey side, but for the most part, I tried to recommend affordable makeup. So whether you're a teen trying not to spend too much of mom and dad's money, or simply trying to look good on a budget, I've got your back!

1) Maybelline Face Studio Master Prime Primer: $7.79 on

This isn't the most sticky primer, so I definitely recommend using a setting spray on top, but it's amazing at filling your pores and making your skin look flawless. If you're ever having a good skin day, wearing just this will be perfect.


2) Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation: $7.99 on

This is a really good foundation, but if you're looking for a really matte effect I suggest using a powder to bake. The reason I love matte is that the dewy is too dewy, and the matte isn't very matte. So, basically it's the perfect dewy foundation.


3) Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush: $29 on

My favorite shade is "paaarty", but depending on the tone of your skin, I'd research what shade works best for you.


4) Maybelline Fit Me Concealer: $6.49 on

Can you tell I'm obsessed with Maybelline? LITERALLY best drug store company ever. It's not as full coverage as Shape Tape, but I honestly like it ten times better.

5) Milani Silky Matte Bronzing Powder: $9.99 on

I also really like blushes from Milani. Their products have honestly always been hit or miss for me, but this bronzer is gr8. I dropped it and it shattered and I literally almost cried. Be careful!

6) Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder: $4.99 on




7) Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb: $18.00 on

The best thing to ever happen to me.
