My Favorite Daily Drug Store Make up Under $10

Over the last couple years I have really gotten into make up. To be honest, I use to shop only designer when it came to make up. But as I began to explore more into the world of beauty I noticed there were many drug store brands that were just as good if not better than the designer brands (in my opinion). Don't get me wrong, I have a big make up collection and am constantly switching things up so there may be moments I'm really into one thing and something new the next month.

I ran to my local CVS the other day and while browsing the make up section I decided to test some new products out.  I'm not kidding when I say, I love every single one of these products.  So that's where the idea of this post came to mind. I wanted to share with you all my favorite items, for a basic day to day look, all of which where purchased from the drug store and all were less than $10
1. Maybelline Fit Me / Dewy + Smooth: foundation was the one thing I wouldn't mind spending a lot of money on, after all, it's the base of your make up. I always wanted to make sure I wasn't caking on a product that would make me break out or wouldn't do the job covering the problem areas. At the moment my skin is pretty clear, with the occasional break out, so I'm not looking for a heavy duty foundation. Fit Me, covers, with out being thick, or looking cakey and it has a nice dewy finish which I love. If you need more coverage, apply a layer, let dry and apply another layer. This stuff easily compares to expensive foundations and at a price point of $7.99  it's a product I will certainly be sticking to for a while.

2. NYX Cosmetics HD Concealer Wand : NYX products have been a big hit lately and I can understand why. This concealer is a favorite of mine. After applying my foundation, I love to use this stuff under my eyes , and highlighting my nose & forehead . It's lightweight, full coverage and brightens you up.  Priced at $5.00

3. NYX Cosmetics Matte Bronzer : I'm obsessed with this stuff! I've tried all sorts of bronzers out there,  designer brands  and drug store  brands  and this is one is one of my favorites!  I wear color medium and it's the perfect matte finish. For the winter months I like to keep my bronzers to matte, once spring  and summer comes I gravitate towards shimmer based bronzers. This is definitely my go to bronzer at the moment, I also love that it costs $8.99

4. NYX cosmetics Pin- Up Tease Mascara - If you don't know by now, I wear false lashes , the strips, on a daily basis. I do like to curl my natural lashes and apply a coat of mascara to them. Pin Up tease is perfect for adding a layer to your lashes and keeping them separated and looking natural. Once I apply the mascara, I then add the lash strip. This mascara allows my lashes to blend well with the false lashes.  It's priced at $5.99

5. E.L.F cosmetics brushes: These make up brushes are so good and at such a low price point, there's nothing that beats them. They compare to high end brushes but also outshine the rest of the drug store brands. I've tried several drug store brushes and have found them to be, flimsy, scratchy, face-tearing, just over all bad products. These brushes are complete opposite of that. There's a brush for just about anything, I love the angled blush brush which I use to apply my bronzer and also the concealer brush which I use to apply a powder high lighter. There are a ton of their brushes that I really like but the focus of this post is what I use day to day for a basic look.  The best part about these brushes has to be the price, the angled brush costs $4.00 while the concealer brush is $3.00 - That beats spending $30 per brush!!

6. Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner & Creamy Matte Lip Color : If you don't know by now about my Maybelline lipstick obsessions, let me introduce you to it!! Maybelline has done an amazing job with their lip products! The color sensational products are on point, the colors are the prettiest, I've found some great nudes and blushes. I always love to add some definition to my lip by applying a liner, the great thing about the shaping lip liner is that it's nice and thin and it's also a twist up. I own just about every color in this collection. If you love lip colors, I'm telling you this is a must have in your collection! The liner is priced at $8.99 and the lipstick is under $6.00
