WHAT DO YOU USE FOR YOUR LIPS? THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AND PINK BUT STILL SO NATURAL. OH MY GOD IM IN LOVE WITH THEM😍😍😍😍😍😍
Hey doll ☺️
If it’s lipgloss then it’s Mac deelight lipglass, I always wear soar lipliner Rimmel do a similar one in the colour “spice” it’s like £4, if it’s matte lipstick it’s bourjois in number 4. My favourite lipstick is by Topshop in the colour naturist that’s what I wear with deelight 💕
Day 10…#Drugstore beauty. I heart makeup but if it doesnt fit in my budget it wont make it in my makeup bag. You can achieve any look you desire without being a slave to the #MAC counter… (Face: #Smashbox, @Maybelline, @milanicosmetics, #Rimmell, elf) #NoBareLips30 #makeup #lipstick #nofilter #selfie #naturalhair #beauty #love
As requested, I carefully selected exceptional products from the drugstores to bring you a look/inspiration on what to wear for college or university (I wouldn’t say school, I used to wear just a little eyeliner during my school days, so I wouldn’t recommend going full frontal glam until college or Uni, just to keep your skin good!) For the purpose of the post, I had to apply more than what I’d actually wear to college/uni so the camera could pick up the quality of the products better than usual.
Okay, now you all know M & I usually prefer higher end products but we do occasionally browse our local aisles for bargains that are capable of doing the same job as some loved luxury products. For this post, I had to borrow my younger sister’s products as I realised I did not own a specific drugstore product, e.g foundation.
The reason why I selected Loreal Eau De Teint (Dupe to Dior’s Nude Air) is because its super duper lightweight as it has a water-like liquid consistency and it dries matte, meaning your skin won’t feel super layered, clogged up, and itll last longer since dewy products usually slip away. This was actually what I’d wear during my college days and I loved it!
After my foundation I usually apply a corrector on top of areas that need extra coverage. For this I have opted for a super inexpensive product; LA Girl Pro Conceal corrector in Yellow which is a great dupe to MAC’s corrector. Its opaque, has a fairly good dispenser and its very affordable.
I then continue perfecting the base by applying bronzer on areas I want to contour. As this is a college/uni look I do not advise going with a fully contoured face. Just lightly dust over your bronzer on the hollows of the cheeks, temples of the forehead and jawline. I’ve opted for NYX’s matte bronzer as it gives a lovely healthy glow to the face.
I then selected Sleek’s blush by 3 palette in Sugar. This palette contains stunning shades to compliment medium to dark olive skin tones! Theres a red, a shimmery taupe and a lovely tangerine matte colour. I lightly dust over the apples of my cheeks with whatever shade the fits my mood.
After I have achieved a flawless base thats glowing, tanned and flush looking, I proceed on with the eye makeup and ensure its kept simple yet eye catching. Rimmel’s Exaggerate Brow pencil is an excellent and affordable product to get your brows going in a matter of minutes, the pigmented kohl like consistency glides on darkening fine hair and the brush on the cap ensures everything is kept looking natural and neat, you cant go wrong with this one!
I then go onto lining my eyes with my favourite drugstore eyeliner, Loreal’s Super Liner. This product is opaque and pigmented not to mention amazing value for money considering I’ve paid double for my high end favourite Stila. I ensure the line is as close to the lash line as possible so it looks natural and doesnt flick out towards the end to create the illusion of rounder eyes rather than cat-like eyes.
Once my top lids are lined, I go on to applying mascara on my bottom lashes. I apply 2 coats of Loreal Telescopic to give me doll like bottom lashes. I absolutely love how this product lengthens my lashes without looking overly clumpy and fake.
I have also included Barry M’s Kohl pencil in brown for all those who do not wish to go with the black eyeliner look. With this kohl you can line both bottom and top or even smudge out to create a smoky warm look that still appears natural.
To create the illusion of bigger lips, I line with NYX Coffee, a warm brown shade which contours the lips into looking more pouty and then apply Sleek Birthday Suit for a real babydoll pink nude look. It looks natural yet very glamorous.
No look of mine is complete without a pair of natural falsies! I’m in love with Eylure’s Texture lashes in 117. They’re very similar to Ardell Demi Wispies that look tres natural and very chic!
This is optional, but a necessity if you want to achieve that finishing glow; I apply a bit of Soap & Glory Trick & Treat Yellow concealer on the bridge of my nose, under the brow bone and under the eyes for that amazing highlighted look! It really emphasises the high points of the face whilst giving you a healthy dewy finish!
Hope this post gave you guys some ideas on what products to purchase next in Boots or Superdrug as well as inspire you all to create a similar look. Of course not everyone is comfortable with that amount of makeup whether it be too much or too little for them so you can alter it to your needs!
