I love makeup but don’t really love spending a ton of money on it if I can find products of the same (or really, really similar) quality for much less.
I’ve rounded up the best drug store makeup on Amazon. There’s nothing more convenient than being able to order something from the comfort of your own home and having it arrive in two days (or less!)
Since becoming a mom I am lucky to have 5 minutes of peace to do my makeup each day. When I was working, I put on makeup first thing every morning. Then I started working from home and I fell into the habit of not getting ready for the day until I had somewhere to go that night. I realize I feel more productive if I change out of my PJs and attempt to do something to get ready. So I’ve gotten into the routine of taking a few minutes (most mornings) to get ready while the kids are watching a show and still waking up.
My 5 minute “to do” list every day: I give myself some eye brows, cover the giant, dark bags under my eyes and the redness of the skin on my cheeks. Anything else is an added bonus.
The best drug store makeup on Amazon
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint: I have been using this foundation for a few months and I LOVE it! It’s easy to apply and it stays put, as long as I use the setting spray over it. It doesn’t look too shiny or too matte. It’s just right.
NYX Matte Liquid Lipstick: If you prefer a matte lipstick to a gloss, then this is the perfect nude shade.
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara: I have been using this for years now and it’s still my favorite drug store mascara.
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: Okay, this is my favorite bronzer EVER. The color is so pretty and natural plus it smells like vacation.
NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee: This gloss is my FAVORITE ever and this color is the perfect neutral. I have like 4 of them and keep one everywhere.
L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil: I swore by the Anastasia Beverly Hills pencil forever, until I tried this. I think the formula is virtually the same. The color works for me just as well and it’s WAY cheaper. LOVE it.
Real Techniques Blender Sponge: I think these work as well as blender sponges that are double their cost.
NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray: This is always my go-to setting spray. It keeps everything in place and gives the perfect dewy finish.
NYX Concealer Wand: I use this under my eyes to cover my bags and brighten up the dark spots. Works like a champ!
Real Techniques Blush Brush: I use this blush for everything. Blush, bronzer and even finishing/setting powder when I use it.
NYX Epic Ink Liner: I have gone back and forth between loving the Kat von D Tattoo Liner and a Mac liner, and I think this one works just as well. The tip is the same and it lasts me just as long.
