Look Good for Less

Makeup is just like anything else… You get what you pay for. But, at the same time, just because something is less expensive doesn’t automatically mean that it’s bad or that it can’t perform. For example, I drive a Nissan. Yeah, it’s no Mercedes or Range Rover, but it runs great and gets me from point A to point B. Plus, it just suits me. Makeup is no different than my car. Find what suits you! I know that in my last couple of posts about makeup, brands like Chanel and Bobbi Brown have popped up a lot. Let me make something clear: you don’t have to have expensive clothes and makeup to look good. Furthermore, you don’t have to use exactly what I use to achieve a look that I do on here. The main takeaway is simply just technique. My goal is not to make you broke! My goal, rather, is to make fashion and beauty attainable to everyone, as I believe they can serve as a confidence booster for a lot of women (and maybe men).

As I mentioned in a previous post, the key thing here is value. I value makeup because I just really freakin’ like it. It’s kind of a hobby for me. So, I spend money on it in order to have the “Mercedes.” Not everyone is going to value the same things, and I definitely don’t expect everyone to have as big of a thing for makeup as I do. What I have done in this post is compile a list of things that I love along with their drugstore equivalent of sorts. The equivalent may not be perfect, but it should still do about the same thing.

The items above are things that are fairly easy to replicate. However, some items just don’t have an exact knockoff version, such as foundation. I still maintain that it is a good idea to get matched at a counter… But, if you can find a good color match, go for it. Pictured below are some drugstore options that I have either used myself once upon a time, or that look like they’d be pretty good.

Here are some other drugstore products that I like and use myself:

Food for Thought: It’s not about what you’re wearing or what kind of makeup you have on… It’s how you’re wearing it!
