Makeup Kit | My Drugstore Makeup Starter Kit for Beginners!

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Hey Dolls!
Today I`m going to be doing a very exciting posts for you! Recently I have gotten the idea of trying to put together my top favorites products from the drugstore, in doing this I decided what better way to show you some products that you can purchase to great a great starter kit. This post is going to be mainly meant for those just starting out with make-up who are wondering what to buy. However this is also great for those already into using make-up because it shows your some more products that you can add to your kit or collection. I tried to chose a variety of different products, different brands and different price points to try and help you better build your collection. Also I do show only one of each product in this post but I do recommend any color or version of the product from that brand`s line.
I hope you find this post helpful and let get started:

Revlon Colorstay for Normal to Dry Skin - $14-16
* this works perfect for my combination oily and dry skin, and provides enough coverage to even out the skin tone and make it appear flawless *

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - $6-8
* this concealer works perfectly for not only covering blemishes and discoloration on the skin but also works great to highlight the entire face without appearing to heavy on the skin *

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - $7
* this powder keeps your makeup on all day, but also helps to keep your face oil free and entirely matte, however some oil will still get through so touch-ups may have to be done throughout the day *

Blushes & Bronzers:
NYX Powder Blushes - $6
* these blushes are super pigmented and cream like, they come in an array of different shades and they are the perfect product for doing many different looks *
Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzer - $3
* if your looking for a compact product this is the way to go, this product provides both a pigmented blush and bronzer at a very low cost *
Hard Candy Contouring Trio`s - $9
* if your looking for a face product to have it all this contains not only a blush and bronzer but also a highlight, however these products contain large amounts of shimmer, so if your looking for matte products this isn`t for you *

Eyeshadow Primer:
Milani Eyeshadow Primer - $10
* this primer is one of the longest lasting at the drugstore, if you are planning to do any sort of eyeshadow look you are going to need a good primer to keep it in place *
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk- $5
* if you want extra color pay off from your eyeshadows I recommend picking up this product, it blends evenly and easily and will leave your colors super pigmented *

LÒreal Infallible Eyeshadow`s - $7-8
* if your looking for a great range of single shadows to stock up on for your collection for kit, LÒreal has some amazing colors and formulas at the drugstore *
Wet N Wild Color Icon Trio`s - $3
 * if your looking for something cheap to play around with many different colors, these are some of the BEST eyeshadow`s in the drugstore, they come in tons of colors and the formula is amazing *
ELF 32 Color Eyeshadow Palette - $6
* if your looking for larger great quality palette, elf has a ton of these 32-color eyeshadow palettes to chose from, and tons of limited edition one`s every season, there great for someone just starting out in make-up and want something cheap but have a lo of variety *

LA Girl Fineline Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen - $5
* eyeliner can be one of the scariest things to start using when it comes to makeup, so instead of just jumping into messy liquid eyeliner start out with a felt tip pen eyeliner, this one is super black has a small tip and makes perfect lines *
& LA Girl Graphix Liquid Eyeliner- $3-5
* if your wanting to branch out and try liquid eyeliner this is a cheap alternative instead of going out and buying something really expensive and realizing liquid eyeliner isn`t for you - remember liquid eyeliner is about trial and error, it will never be perfect on the first attempt *

LÒreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara - $6-9
* this is one of the best mascaras at the drugstore, the formula is perfect, its waterproof and this does not leave your lashes clumpy. it gives tones of volume and length and is the perfect combination *

Milani Easybrow Pencil - $6-8
* if your not into really doing your eyebrows at first its fine, but start out with something easy, this brow pencil from Milani matches my blonde hair and eyebrows perfectly, its a very light sheer color and is perfect for beginner *

NYX Round Lipsticks - $6
 * nyx has some amazing products and these are one of them, they come in a ton of different colors and are very affordable, if you don`t want to pay a high price to try out some cool and crazy lip colors this is the way to go *
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks - $7
 * this formula is super creamy and very natural on the lips, revlon has many different shades and finishes of these super lustrous lipsticks. these are also very affordable if you are looking to build a collection or kit *
Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks - $8
* these lipsticks sometimes get over-looked but I have found a real liking for the nude shades and the super dark and bright shades, I think covergirl has one of the best lipstick formulas in the drugstore but people often don`t think of them as kit or collection worthy! pick these up if you get the chance *

NYX Butter Lipglosses - $5-7
 * if your looking for something that is easy to wear just on its own, these lipglosses are perfect, they have a very creamy formula, come in a ton of colors, are affordable and provide amazing color pay off *
NYX Mega Shine Glosses - $6-7
 * if your looking for something that is great to wear on its own or over a lipstick for a glossy finish, these NYX glosses are right up your alley, they are not sticky, have some pigmentation and they last a very long time *
ELF Hypershine Glosses - $1
 * one of the most affordable and favorite things in my collection are these, they comes in tons of colors, only cost $1, are not sticky, and last a fair amount of hours - these are also really great to pick up if you aren`t really into lipgloss but want some just in case*

Lip Stains:
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains - $8-9
* another amazing product at the drugstore, if you don`t like the feeling or sensation of a lipstick or gloss you may want to take a look at lip stains, these so go on opaque and like a lipstick but after a few minutes they settle in and leave a stain, this means you can blot the extra lipstick color off and have a fresh stained lip - these also come in tons of formulas (matte, glossy, etc) and a ton of different colors *
