A Face Beat – Drugstore Makeup Products For Casual Glam

I’m back and better than ever. And I mean that, literally. A lot has changed in my life since I last posted a blog post. I feel almost outrageous right now, like I’ve been gone for 9+ months and I have the audacity to return. That being said, I have given birth to a completely new person… myself. Hah, got you there.

A lot has changed, yes. But I don’t wanna reintroduce myself to my blog just yet with an update. I’ll post a blog on that some time later. Right now is the time to discuss the matters of the face.

This blog post is all about how to get a casual glam makeup look on a drugstore budget. If you’re looking for luxury products.. this student cannot provide you with that.. just yet.

A Casual Glam with Drugstore Makeup Products

I decided to call this casual glam because it is not fully glam, but not just a casual, regular face beat. It’s not something I would wear everyday. Being honest, concealer, eyebrows, mascara and lip gloss do me for a regular makeup day nowadays. Sometimes without concealer if I’m feeling adventurous. So let’s get started.

THE BASE

 

Primer

Before I do my face, I always cleanse with micellar water and moisturise. And before makeup even touches my face for a casual glam look, I give it a good spritz with this hydrating prime and care spray from Catrice. I like anything with the word hydrating because I have the driest skin ever. I have seen a difference when I don’t wear this, and my makeup truly doesn’t last as long as it would if I would apply this.

Foundation

I do foundation first before everything. I find it kind of weird to do eyebrows before your foundation because when I apply foundation it just messes up my eyebrows or something? I don’t know, this is just easier for me. Anyways, after the primer, this applies nicely with a beauty blender.

Concealer

I literally cannot say or type the word concealer anymore without saying it in Laura Lee’s voice.. conceelur. If you know, you know. Anyways, I go hard with concealing. I use the Sleek Cream Contour Kit in the shade Dark 097 and the Rimmel Match Perfection concealer in True Beige 050. I use the top shades of the Sleek palette for highlighting my face and the Rimmel concealer for a base concealer.

Powder

This part is pretty self explanatory. One thing I will say is that I will definitely be purchasing a more luxury powder, but I find this just does the job for me. It makes the face nice and matte, and really that’s all I need.

THE EYES

Eyeshadow

After the powder, I move onto the eyes. I use the powder as a base to blend in any eyeshadow I’m applying. I usually use the ‘Be Crazy About’ palette by Obsession, who is a brand I’ve never heard about until I bought this palette. I never go heavy on the eyes if it’s just for everyday glam. I take the shade ‘Ardour’ which is like a peachy, pink eyeshadow. I just apply that all over my upper eyelid. Easy.

Eyeliner

I’ve always been obsessed with black kohl eyeliner. It just does something to the eyes, makes it look more sultry. I use the Rimmel London Ultimate Waterproof Kohl. I really like this liner because it’s so blunt and thick that it’ll last for long.

Mascara

This is the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, It’s quite black, and I’ve had it for a good while. I also think the bottle it’s packaged in is cute, probably because it’s pink. I don’t think there’s anything that special about it, it just does the job.

THE HIGHLIGHT

This is the Carter Beauty ‘Blaze’ highlight palette, I got this a few weeks ago and so far so good. It’s not top of the range or anything but it does give me that glow that I need so I’m not complaining. The bottom right hand corner is the highlight I usually use.

THE LIPS

I like doing an glossy ombré lip usually, so I take the Rimmel London ‘Stay Matte’ liquid lip colour in the shade 731 Scandalous, and apply that all over the lip. It’s like a warm brown, and I love brown on the lips. After that, I grab ‘Matte Me’ by Sleek Makeup in the shade Feels 1169, which is more a nude pink tone. These are both great for an ombré lip combo. To get a glossy lip, I apply the ‘Shine, Shine, Shine’ lipgloss from Essence.
