I don’t know if any of you reading this are wannabe beauty gurus, but I AM. I am addicted to watching beauty influencers on YouTube. I could sit and watch four hours of makeup tutorials before I will sit and binge watch a show. Weird, maybe. But I love it. I will list my favorite gurus with links to their channels at the bottom of this article.
That being said, I love trying new makeup. I didn’t start wearing makeup until my last couple years of high school and even after that, I never had a super detailed makeup routine. I was never one to splurge at Sephora or go buy the latest foundation. However, my routine has changed drastically in the last year since I have become a frequent YouTube viewer, thanks to one of my best friends, Donielle.
Since I still don’t have a ton of money to drop at Sephora or MAC, I am a die-hard believer that drugstore makeup can be just as great as high end makeup. If you watch a lot of tutorials, you know that a lot of makeup artists will use drugstore products every day. Brands like Maybelline and L’Oreal are releasing great products that are at an affordable price range.
So, today I am going to list my holy grail drugstore products. I am also going to include some new products that I don’t use every day, but would still recommend them. I am going to also include brands such as Morphe and Colourpop that aren’t available in drugstores, but have amazing and just as affordable products and are available online.
