Back To School Must Haves : Makeup Products (All Drugstore)

I cannot believe summer is over, I am personally very sad/anxious. I go back to school & start back working next Monday and I know its going to be a struggle getting back into that routine that I have been out of for 3 months. I’m preparing to be more than overwhelmed seeing as how I will be in school full time & working full time! I usually bounce back pretty fast so hopefully I have a decent transition *fingers crossed* I enjoyed my much needed time off, but its time to get back to it.

ANYWAYS, I asked you all if you wanted to see a Back To School post and many of you said that you did so thats what I am here to do for you all.  Now if I am going to be honest, when it comes to makeup. I wear very little to no makeup going to class. I have to take very early classes to be able to get to work on time in the afternoon so I don’t usually feel like doing my makeup in the mornings, but if I do I keep it light and fresh. This post is going to feature all drugstore products so everything is affordable :)

Now if I do take the time to do my makeup I really focus on my face. My face is my favorite part of doing my makeup, and for those early mornings it’s going to really help you look awake. You wanna make sure that before doing any kind of makeup application that you have properly cleaned and moisturized the skin. 

Face Products (Foundation):

L'oreal True Match: I like this foundation because it is lightweight and not a foundation that’s too heavy for school. There is a wide shade selection so any complexion & undertone can find a foundation that looks right on them. If you have dry skin I recommend using the True Match Lumi.

Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation: This is GREAT for those of you who have oily skin, this foundation is so beautiful on the skin. It gives a good amount of coverage and keeps you matte for quite some time. I like that this doesn’t look cakey on your skin, and it looks so natural. The key for makeup is to help it enhance your natural beauty.

External image

Garnier BB Cream: I am beyond obsessed with this product right now, I have been wanting to play with BB creams for so long now but BB creams tend to run very light and have no decent shade selections. I love this BB cream, they have four shades and deep is the shade that works for me. This product is pretty full coverage but looks SO natural. You can’t even feel this product on the face, this is going to for sure be my go to product for school this year. If you have combo to oily skin, make sure you get the combo to oily skin formula. If you are dry make sure you get the regular formula.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer: This concealer is very nice, this is very similar to the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer which I love but is expensive and this is a really nice cheaper alternative!

External image

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer: Love this, the shade selection isn’t the best but the darkest shade in this range is wearable enough for me to use as an under eye highlight which I loved. This covers darkness underneath the eye area really well which will be essential waking up at the butt crack of dawn for school :)


External image


Rimmel Stay Matte Powder: Very inexpensive and does exactly what it claims. It helps take away any shine off of the face and keep you matte which is an oily girls dream.

External image


ELF Blush Palette: I don’t necessarily think blush is always needed for school, but I really do like the ELF blush palette. This here is only $6 and you get 4 very pigmented blushes. This blend so well, and I love the finish of them. They come in two palettes: Light & Dark but I love them both, and I wanna get my hands on the light palette. 

External image

ELF HD Blushes: Cream products are very ideal when it comes to makeup because I feel cream products look the most natural on the skin. I love ELF cream blushes because they are so pigmented & only $3 these blushes last forever on the skin, and come in such beautiful shades. Just be careful because I promise a little tea size amount will take you a long way.

External image

Milani Baked Blushes: I have to mention these because they are freaking amazing. I LOVE these blushes, they give such a gorgeous sheen to the cheeks. I usually am not for shimmery blushes, and when you first glance at these they look shimmery as hell but the sheen they put on the cheeks is just perfect. 

External image

Rimmel Stay Blushed: Another cream blush that I LOVE these are so pigmented and creamy and give such a healthy look to the skin when these are on. Plus I think these were around $2 which makes my bank account smile :) Apricot Glow is the perfect everyday blush!


NYC Sunny: This bronzer isn’t for me seeing as how its not dark enough for me but I have used this on others and it looks really good. This is really good for contouring and adding some more color to your skin. This bronzer is a pretty good dupe for Benefit Hoola, not an exact dupe but probably the closest that you will get.

External image

ELF Contour/Blush Palette: I only use these for the bronzers, but I love these they have several different palettes for a variety of skintones. I love Turks & Caicos and use it daily.

External image


Milani Brow Kit: If I’m not wearing any makeup I usually always do my brows though because I have the ultimate struggle brows but I love doing my brows because I really feel as though they shape the face. I love this milani brow kit for filling in the brows, and making them look natural and not harsh. It comes with two brow powder, I recommend using the lighter powder for the inner part of your brow, and then using the darker powder on the outer half of the brow to help that the brows look as natural as possible.

External image

NYC Brow Pencils: I love to use a pencil to outline the shape of my brow and then go in with a powder to fill in my brows. This pencil is really good to use to get a nice define brow look.

External image


Maybelline Eye Studio Quads: Now I don’t necessarily think that eyeshadow is necessary and I usually don’t wear it but if you do wanna wear eyeshadows I recommend these. They are some of my favorites at the drugstores they are so pigmented and blend amazingly. Plus all of their quads have such pretty eyeshadows.


External image

NYX Single Eyeshadows: I love NYX they make some really good quality makeup for great prices. I love their single eyeshadows, which many are MAC shade dupes. Usually if see an eye shadow at MAC you can usually find a shade that is the exact same or very similar from NYX.

External image


Maybelline Gel Eyeliner: Love this, I like to use this on my waterline because I have really watery eyes and anything can make my eyes water and this does not budge or smear. 

External image

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliners: I love these so much because these eyeliners are so soft, creamy, and pigmented so they don’t tug or pull on your eyes. 

External image

L'oreal Slim Eyeliner Pen: This is a liquid eyeliner that is a pen form, which I think makes it more easier to work with. I love how black this eyeliner is remember ( the blacker the better ;) ) 

External image


L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black: One of my favorites mascaras hands down, and one of the best at the drugstore. I love how black these make my lashes, and unlike many mascaras that claim to give volume this mascara actually gives my lashes tons of volume.

External image

Maybelline The Rocket Mascara: An oldie but a goodie here, I love this mascara this really lengthens my lashes and makes my lashes look like I have falsies on when I really don’t.

External image


NYX Butter Glosses: I think yall knew this one was coming lol I LOVE these. I wear these ALL the time, and I love all of the shades & how creamy these are. These are the perfect go to lip glosses for school.

External image

Revlon Lip Butters: These are another favorite lip products of mine from the drugstore, these are so moisturizing & many of these lip butters give really good amounts of color to the lips. I can’t really describe the formula of these but its basically like a lipstick & lip gloss mixed together. its perfect.

External image

NYX Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippies:  These are basically tinted lip balms, and I love how these feel on the lips & the color they give off is really nice more than I would expect. These give off the perfect color: not too much & not too little. 

External image

ELF Tinted Lip Conditioners: OBSESSED. I don’t know how I wasn’t living with these in my life before but I love these. They smell so good & the texture of these are perfect. I love the color payoffs which makes these perfect for a nice everyday lip.

Hello! So i wanted to ask you, when i put mascara on my eyelashes, my eyelashes always go back to their old place, and i get black smudges under my eyes. What should i do?

You are not alone; many other fed up individuals are suffering from the very same gut-wrenching conditions as yourself, the diagnosis? “Mascara Woes” of which symptoms include: smudged mascara and droopy lashes, the disease can be potentially fatal to your confidence, but don’t fret; I’ve got the cure.


Mascaras and eyeliners are often attracted to creamy concealers and eye creams so set your under eye concealer with a good setting powder and fluffy blending eyeshadow brush. Also, make sure you ditch the creamy eye creams in your morning makeup routine, they are great and make concealer glide on easily, but sadly they are often the course for smudged eye makeup.

I’d also recommend using a great waterproof mascara and eyeliner to help further prevent smudging.
