Drugstore Makeup Must-haves

As all of us makeup lovers know that make up isn’t the cheapest thing out there but it certainly doesn’t stop us buying it, right? If anything, it makes us want things even more! For me, it motivates me to find good buys that are cheap but just as good, if not even better than high end items. Therefore, I have a few recommendations that are cheap but do the job just as well!


To start with, one of the best foundations I have recently tried is the Bourjois Paris Healthy Mix Foundation, it does exactly what it says on the bottle. It hydrates, lasts and blends easily. Not only this, but its dermalogically tested and has 8 shades which fit most skin tones. £9.99


Another recommended foundation is the L’Oréal Paris True Match Foundation, it’s medium to full coverage and fulfils its purpose. It’s super blend-able, hydrates the skin, has an SPF of 17 and is available in 23 amazing shades! £9.99



My favourite drugstore concealer is the Maybelline Age Rewind Eye Concealer, long name right? But I’ll tell you one thing, it’s better than a lot of the high-end concealers I have tried. Its perfect not only under the eye but also as an eye primer set with a bit of powder and to cover pigmentation and acne scarring. Its sponge applicator makes it easy to apply and it gives a natural finish. £8.99

Bronzer/Contour Powder

Right, the best drugstore bronzer would be the Revolution Ultra Contour Palette, this contains 8 compacts; 3 bronzer shades, 3 highlights and 2 normal. Each bronzer is a different shade with a different tone. £7.99

Everyone’s favourite part, right? I mean who doesn’t love to glow! Highlighters are different for everyone; it depends on the colour of their skin and what colour highlight they would like.

The highlight part of the Revolution Ultra Contour Palette is a silver shimmery highlight where a little goes a long way! This amazing highlight suits all skin tones and is sure to give you all the glow you desire. £7.99

Also, the Goddess of Faith Triple Baked Highlighter comes in a few different shades with enough product to last you a lifetime! I mean it, this thing never runs out and it lasts you all day and I mean ALL day without budging, it’s currently a go-to of mine. £4.99
