Every makeup-lover wants to own a ton of makeup. I can relate. However, this is extremely difficult to accomplish when you feel like you have to win the lottery just to buy more than five things at Sephora. What most people don't know is that there are awesome products at your local drugstore that can easily pass for high-end purchases. Here are some of my favorites:


The drugstore has a huge range of primers, and different things work for different people. In this article I will include a matte, luminous, and normal finish primer that could suit any skin type.

The L'oreal Infallible collection is by far one of the greatest at the drugstore, and their primers are no exception. The Infallible Pro Matte Lock Primer keeps my foundation matte all day, and does not make my skin look or feel patchy, or dry.

Another L'oreal primer I love is the Studio Secrets Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. Because I tend to get oily throughout the day, I find that this primer works best for me if I focus is more on the outer portions of my face. This product makes my skin feel healthy, and look glowy.

The Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Instant-Perfecting Power Primer is similar to the Benefit Porefessional primer and works well for a natural finish. It is perfect for every day use, and leaves the skin looking smooth and healthy.

Foundations and Concealer

There are quite a few all time favorite foundations of mine that are drugstore products. Maybelline is one of my favorite brands for foundation, so I will include two foundations: one luminous, and one matte. Additionally, I will include my favorite drugstore concealer.

The first foundation is the Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation. This foundation does not stick to dry patches, and leaves the skin with a healthy glow. It is a medium coverage foundation, but is easy to build coverage. Also included in this picture is the Maybelline Fit Me concealer. This concealer is looks very natural and glowy, but is easy to mattify with powder.

The Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation is one of the most loved products from the drugstore. This foundation is also medium coverage with easily build-able application, and does not cling to dry spots.

There are hundreds of more products from the drugstore that I would love to rave about, and recommend. Let me know if you would like to see more articles like this!! Good luck shopping!
