It may be too early to tell if it makes a visible difference, but I must say, it feels great on my skin.
ELF Liquid Poreless Putty Primer
Primer is a crucial step in achieving a flawless face, and drugstore options have come a long way. One primer that has blown me away is the ELF Liquid Poreless Putty Primer. I mentioned this in my favorites video, and I can’t stop raving about it. Its remarkable ability to smooth out the skin and prolong the wear of my makeup is simply incredible. I focus on applying it to my T Zone, where I have larger pores, and then blend it out across my entire face.
Covergirl TruBlend Undercover Concealer
Concealer is a makeup staple that we all rely on to hide imperfections, and the drugstore offers some excellent options. The Covergirl TruBlend Undercover Concealer is a recent addition to my collection, and it has quickly become a favorite. It provides full coverage without feeling heavy or cakey. The formula blends seamlessly into the skin, making it perfect for covering dark circles or blemishes. Plus, it’s long-wearing, so you don’t have to worry about touch-ups throughout the day.

No full-face makeup look is complete without a good foundation, and Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation is a game-changer.

It also helps control shine and minimize the appearance of pores, giving you a flawless complexion that lasts all day.
Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Palette
Drugstore eyeshadow palettes have come a long way in terms of quality and variety. One palette that stands out is the Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Palette.

When it comes to finding the perfect drugstore foundation, Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Skin Tint takes the cake. This amazing product truly lives up to its claims and delivers flawless coverage all day long. While the packaging could use some improvement, the formula more than makes up for it.
Lightweight and Long-Lasting
One of the standout features of the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Skin Tint is its lightweight feel. Unlike other skin tints, this product manages to provide excellent coverage while still feeling light on the skin. It’s a rare combination that sets it apart from its competitors.
The long-lasting formula is another factor that makes this product so impressive. Many skin tints tend to fade or wear off throughout the day, but Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Skin Tint stays put.

To use the under-eye brightener, simply press it in with a sponge all around your eyes. The difference is visible immediately, as it gives your eyes a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Enhancing Your Skin with the Right Makeup Products
Using Concealer for that Extra Coverage
When it comes to makeup, one of the most essential products is concealer. Even if you have a flawless complexion, a little bit of concealer can make a huge difference. I personally love using the NYX serum concealer to brighten up my under-eye area. Applying a small amount of this concealer not only helps to hide any imperfections, but it also creates a smooth canvas for the rest of the makeup.
Adding a Natural Glow with Liquid Bronzer
To achieve a natural sun-kissed look, I often turn to the Physicians Formula Butter Glow Liquid Bronzer. This product is not just great for adding warmth to the skin, but it also has a delightful coconut scent that adds to the overall experience. Using a small amount of the bronzer on the back of my hand, I gently apply it all over my face. I prefer to use a combination of swiping and stippling motions to ensure an even blend with my foundation.
Experimenting with a New Highlighter
Breaking away from my usual routine, I decided to try something different with my makeup. Before setting my face with powder, I introduced the new Catrice All Over Glow Tint into my routine. This highlighter is incredibly beautiful and adds a gorgeous radiance to the skin. Instead of applying blush and then highlighter, I wanted them to blend seamlessly together. By applying the highlighter only to the high points of my face, it allows the product to melt into the skin and achieve a natural glow.
Finding the Perfect Scent for Complexion Products
Fragrances in makeup products can be a hit or miss for many people. Personally, I tend to shy away from scented complexion products. However, the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer is an exception. Its coconut scent is absolutely intoxicating. Not only does it not bother me, but I find myself becoming obsessed with its aroma. It’s refreshing to find a scented product that I can’t get enough of and genuinely enjoy using.
Finding the right makeup products that enhance your natural beauty is key. Concealer, bronzer, and highlighter are all essential components of a flawless makeup look. Experimenting with different techniques and products can lead to exciting discoveries. While fragrances may not be preferred by everyone, there are exceptions like the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer that can truly enhance your overall experience. Remember, makeup is not just about looking good, but also feeling good.
The Perfect Combination: Mixing Moira Liquid Blushes
When it comes to makeup, there’s always excitement in trying something new. Recently, I had the opportunity to experiment with Moira’s Love Study liquid blushes, and let me tell you, the results are absolutely incredible. The way these shades layer together creates such a beautiful effect that I can’t help but be obsessed. Let’s dive into this magical formula and see how they work their charm.
A Blend of Colors: Shades One and Six
One of the first things that caught my attention about Moira’s liquid blushes is the wide range of shades available. I couldn’t resist trying shades one and six together, and boy, they did not disappoint. The combination of these two dewy formulas creates a stunning cool-toned pink shade that is truly exquisite. To apply, I lightly stipple the mixture onto the apples of my cheeks, blending it seamlessly with the highlighter. The result? A radiant and flushed look that looks effortlessly natural.
The Dewy vs Matte Formula
Moira’s liquid blushes come in two different finishes – dewy and matte. I must say, the dewy formula stole my heart. It gives my cheeks a healthy glow and adds a touch of radiance to my overall makeup look. However, if you prefer a more velvety finish, the matte formula is perfect for you. Whichever formula you choose, both offer a wide range of shades to suit various skin tones.
The Rare Beauty Connection
While experimenting with Moira’s liquid blushes, something interesting caught my attention. The vibes of these blushes feel very similar to Rare Beauty’s blushes. It’s almost as if they were intentionally created to offer a similar aesthetic. The connection between the two brands intrigues me, and I can’t help but wonder if there’s more to it than meets the eye. Nevertheless, I must admit that the combination of shades and the ultimate result make me a Moira fan for life.
The Perfect Complement: The Apples of My Cheeks and Beyond
As I apply the liquid blushes to my cheeks, I can’t resist using the remaining product to tie everything together. I gently blend the residue through my eyebrows, creating a subtle and cohesive look that complements the overall makeup style. This small detail adds an extra touch of elegance and ensures a unified appearance.
A Missing Powder: An Unexpected Twist
As I prepared to share my thoughts about Moira’s liquid blushes, there was one product that seemed to elude me – the powder blush. I had planned to include it in this review, but unfortunately, it seems to have vanished. However, I wanted to mention it to complete the discussion about Moira’s blush range. Sometimes, unexpected twists keep life interesting, and perhaps this missing powder blush is just one of those twists.
The Moira liquid blushes have become a staple in my makeup routine. The ability to blend shades, the dewy finish, and the overall aesthetic make them a must-have for any makeup enthusiast. Whether you prefer a radiant glow or a velvety matte, Moira has you covered. So, don’t be afraid to experiment,
Discovering the Perfect Powder: The Nyx Powder
The Nyx powder has recently caught my attention and I must tell you, I am loving it. However, I have been struggling to find it in stores. It seems that my love for this powder has made it elusive. Nonetheless, I have found an alternative in the form of Haleys Beauty powder. Using a small triangle puff, I have set my under eye area and T Zone, as I prefer a matte finish in these areas. Although the outer parts of my face can have a radiant glow, I find that using powder ensures the longevity of my makeup. Everything is coming together and I am loving the result.
A Brow Pencil Worth Mentioning: Maybelline vs. Milani
I recently stumbled upon a brow pencil from Maybelline, and it has pleasantly surprised me. As an individual who has exclusively praised the Milani brow pencil in the past, it is rare for me to shift loyalty. Nevertheless, the Maybelline Express Brow Ultra Slim Pencil in the shade Deep Brown has won me over. The inclusion of a spoolie on the other end further adds to its appeal. With this pencil, my brows have been perfectly defined.
Contouring with Essence Contouring Duo
Lately, I have been infatuated with the Essence Contouring Duo. While it is specifically marketed for contouring, I have found an alternative use for it. Prior to applying eyeshadow, I use the lighter shade and the deeper shade to sculpt my eyes. It serves as an excellent base for my eyeshadow, creating dimension and enhancing the overall look. The versatility of this product has made it a staple in my makeup routine.
The Magic of Cosmetics: Enhancing the Eyes with Glitters
When it comes to makeup, there is nothing quite like the way it can transform your face and enhance your features. One of my favorite makeup techniques is using glitters to add that extra sparkle to the eyes. Today, I will share with you my love for this technique and the amazing products I have discovered.
Creating Definition with a Deeper Shade
To achieve a more defined look, I have recently started adding a deeper shade to the outer edge of my eyes. This step not only adds depth but also creates a sculpted effect. The product I have been using for this is a contour duo recommended to me by Mr. Johnny Ross. It blends effortlessly and works perfectly as both an eyeshadow and a contour.
The Allure of Pressed Glitters
In my search for high-quality yet affordable cosmetics, I stumbled upon Love Cosmetics and their pressed glitters. These glitters are truly out of this world. One shade, in particular, caught my attention – Snow Angel. The lightness of this glitter makes it ideal for everyday wear, while its multitude of rainbow reflexes gives it a stunning and mesmerizing effect.
Tap and Glow
I cannot get enough of the Snow Angel glitter. To apply it, simply tap a small amount onto the lid. The result is absolutely incredible. The glitter adds an enchanting shimmer that catches the light beautifully. It is a truly irresistible addition to any makeup look.
A Word of Thanks
I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Johnny Ross for introducing me to these amazing products. His recommendations have enriched my makeup routine and introduced me to new and exciting possibilities. I am forever grateful for the inspiration he has provided me.
Discovering a New Favorite Drugstore Mascara
When it comes to makeup, finding a great mascara can often be a game-changer. That’s why I was thrilled to stumble upon the Covergirl Lash Blast Clean Topia mascara. With just a basic eyeshadow on the rest of my eyes, this mascara created the most spectacular and eye-catching look.
A Surprisingly Beautiful Effect
What intrigued me the most about the Lash Blast Clean Topia mascara was its ability to enhance the lower lashes. Typically, mascaras focus on the upper lashes, but this one promised to give attention to both. With high hopes, I decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful effect it had.
Repeating the Success
After the success of my first trial with the mascara, I decided to give it another whirl. Hoping for consistent results, I started applying it to both my top and bottom lashes. The formula built up effortlessly, and I was once again impressed with the stunning look it created.
Finding a Gem in the Drugstore
As a budget-conscious beauty lover, I’m always on the lookout for great drugstore finds. And stumbling upon this gem from Covergirl was a delightful surprise. Finding a high-quality mascara that doesn’t break the bank is a win in my book.
A Perfect Lip Combo
In addition to my newfound love for the Lash Blast Clean Topia mascara, I also discovered a lip combo that I’m currently obsessing over. It consists of the Rimmel Cappuccino lip liner and the Rimmel Kate lipstick in the shade 42.
The Rimmel Cappuccino lip liner provides the perfect base, and with a little blending, it creates a seamless and natural look. The Rimmel Kate lipstick, in shade 42, adds a pop of color that complements and enhances the lip liner beautifully. To complete the look, I finish it off with a swipe of the Morphe Drip Glass lip gloss.
The Magic of Glazed Lip Gloss
Glazed lip gloss in the shade, polished Peach, has taken the beauty world by storm. This lip gloss is not only beautiful but also incredibly affordable, making it a must-have for any makeup lover. The smooth and shiny texture instantly adds a touch of glamour to any look. Whether you want a natural everyday shine or a bold statement, glazed lip gloss in polished Peach has got you covered.
A Cheeky Glow
Not only is glazed lip gloss perfect for the lips, but it can also be used to enhance your cheeks. By using a blush brush, simply tap some of the leftover lip gloss onto your cheeks for a subtle glow. The polished Peach shade adds a natural flush, giving your complexion a healthy and radiant appearance. It’s incredible how a simple drugstore product can deliver such amazing results.
A Bronze Goddess
To complete your makeup look, don’t forget to add a touch of bronzer. Take the bronzer brush and use the remaining lip gloss on the brush to add a bit more shine to your forehead. This step adds dimension and warmth to your face, giving you that coveted sun-kissed look. The drugstore products used in this routine are truly game-changers, proving that you don’t need to break the bank for a flawless finish.
Set it in Place
To ensure your makeup stays in place all day, it’s essential to set your face. The Morphe continue setting mist is the perfect finishing touch. Focus on the outer areas of your face and press the mist into the skin for long-lasting wear. This step will also give your skin a refreshing and revitalizing feeling. Don’t forget to hold onto your brush tightly, as you don’t want it to go flying during this crucial step!
Lashes that Wow
No makeup look is complete without fluttery lashes. The Ardell 420 lashes are nothing short of amazing. These lashes are actually two full lashes, but they can be cut in half to create outer corner half lashes. The result is a natural-looking, voluminous effect that adds just the right amount of drama to your eyes. Compared to the bare eye, these lashes instantly lift and enhance your entire look. Get ready to fall in love with these beauties.
The power of glazed lip gloss in polished Peach cannot be underestimated. Not only does it give your lips a gorgeous shine, but it can also be used to create a luminous glow on your cheeks. When paired with a touch of bronzer, a setting mist, and some stunning lashes, this drugstore makeup routine will have you looking and feeling like a million dollars. Say goodbye to expensive products and hello to the magic of affordable beauty.
