I have a dirty secret. I ADORE THE DRUGSTORE MAKE-UP AISLE. I cannot get enough: Maybelline New York, Essie & Garnier, oh my! It’s the peanut butter to my jelly!
When I want to try new fall beauty trends but save my credit card from bursting into flames, I head to the nearest drugstore beauté section. Here are my top finds to take you from any ‘Day to Night’!
Mr X wants to take you for an early morning hike but you partied like Miley Cyrus the night before? NO PROBLEM! Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream + Blur has a fantastic delicate finish with light reflectors, which gives a peaches & cream complexion minus the angel lifestyle! Merci!
Define your brows with the handy duo of liner & powder in the Maybelline New York Brow Satin and be sure to blend with a spoolie brush swipe to keep the game going of ‘I-Woke-Up-Like-This’.
Followed by a stroke of Essie’s Sandy Beach (LOVE the French Mani effect it gives) and you’re ready to run out for that early morning trek with Mr. Ranger!
You get a call while on the trail: your colleague needs you to cover the client event in 3 hours?! Again, BREATHE EASY!
Build off your flawless morning canvas with a classic look: cat eye & a bold lip. Do your best M Fab line with the Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Smooth Charcoal (easy butter-like application that LASTS).
Feeling daring? Stain just your inner lip!
ColorBLUR is the BEST bang for your buck! I actually use it as a stain, lipstick, liner & cream blush in a pinch.
Use a toothpick to line on Essie’s Miss Fancy Pants for a personalised touch and you are ready for clients 1 -1000!
As you’re networking, your mobile buzzes: it’s Mr. SECOND DATE!!!! He wants to meet you for 5 á 7 cocktails: SAY OUI! Have NO FEAR, mes beautés, I got your back!
Evening calls for RICH COLOUR. Line your water line & lower lash with the Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Lustrous Sapphire (BEAUTIFULLY pigmented) and then SMUDGE like your life depends on it!
Keep that drama on the eyes going, by adding another coat of LASH Sensational mascara especially at the root of lashes (easy buildable product to thicken lashes without looking like Brit Brit during rehab).
Don’t compete with your beautiful peepers: keep the lip nude with a gentle rosy sheen from Baby Lips moisturizing lip glosses Pink-a-Boo & Just a Glimmer on the cupid’s bow – Merci, Huda Beauty for the tip!
If you’re feeling pale, add a touch of ColorBLUR I’m Blushing to apples of cheeks (highly pigmented, a little goes a long way) & gently blend in.
Brush on a coat of Essie’s ‘Stylenomics’ – trust me, it’s INSANE! One coat gives a deep hit of gorgeous smoky Emerald colour.
Finish your evening look with a spritz to your locks of Garnier Fructis Miraculous Oil-in-Spray for a healthy ‘just washed’ shine. Then go have FUN with Mr. Paying-For-Drinks!
I’d wish you luck, but we all know that you’re gonna knock him off his seat!
