A few weeks back I have shared my CVS Pharmacy Beauty Haul featuring “The Best Drugstore Beauty Finds ”. Some of you have asked on Snapchat if I am going to create a guide or tutorial using those products. So I figured, my next post will be a get-ready with me using ONLY drugstore beauty products from CVS!
While the majority of your feedback fancied my highlight, contour and bold lips – quite a few have expressed to be a beginner with these things and aren’t as familiar with makeup or steps to take. So I asked myself, how do I simplify the steps? By breaking it down and making sure I don’t use any fancy tools or advance technique. There’s a lot of makeup tutorials out there for beauty trends (contouring, baking and strobing) … my version is simplifying the latest “look/trend”. Ready to get started? Let’s start with the following products …
• Olay Complete with SPF15 – moisturizing is very important to keep your skin hydrated and prevent dry, flaky skin. Having sunscreen infused with the moisturizer is a big plus to prevent sun damage.
• NYX Soft Focus Primer – this product is an instant “holy-grail” for every beauty guru and enthusiast … it covers and even out pores that results to an even coverage of foundation without creasing.
• Revlon Colorstay Foundation – covers out imperfections such as blemishes and discoloration. This is what creates that perfect flawless skin look.
• NYX Eyebrow Gel – fills in the sparse areas of the brow making it appear thicker, fuller and defined.
• NYX Matte Finishing Powder – this powder sets your makeup and help it last longer without having to touch up multiple times throughout the day.
• NYX Ombre Blush – adds a touch of color on the cheeks for a naturally flushed effect.
• NYX Cheek Contour – to add definition on the areas that frames our face.
• Physicians Formula Glow Pearls – highlight the highest point on our face such as cheekbones & cupid’s bow.
• NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – for a bold, vivid lips without the gloss.
• E.L.F. Eyeliner & Eyeshadow Stick – to help create a cat’s eyes, kitten flick or a smokey eye finish.
• E.L.F. Prism Eyeshadow Palette – to achieve subtle eye color or a hint of glitz.
