Tutorial: Drugstore Makeup

Hey everyone! Today, I posted a drugstore makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel. If you missed anything I used, I will fill you in right now! I hope this helps you. -

1. First, I applied the Dream Mousse Concealer in Light 4-5 with my finger under the eyes. Then I applied the same concealer on all the blemishes with the SS224. Remember to use a swirling motion!
2. Next I used foundation. The foundation I used was the Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation in 150 Classic Ivory. This was $10, and has medium coverage! I used the sponge applicator that came with the foundation, but I would recommend a SS190. I also primed Gabby's lids with this foundation.
3. After foundation, I put on some blush. I used the Maybelline Dream Mousse in Soft Plum 40. I applied it with the SS187 because the stippling brush really swirls the product into the apple's of the cheeks perfectly. The blush was about $8.
4. The last step for the face was to apply powder! I used the Maybelline Mineral Power Powder with the SS150. This powder will just help set your makeup.

5. For the eyes, I used the Revlon Khaki Suede bases. I used the first, tan color in the quad, and applied it evenly to both lids.
6. I used the Maybelline Bronze Glitz Trio for eyeshadow. I really recommend this trio because it has great pigmentation. I used the SS252 to apply the tan, bottom color.
7. Then I took the SS217. and applied the top, bronze color into the crease.
8.Next, I used the Mayeblline Unstoppable eyeliner.
9. Lastly, I used the Covergirl Lastblast Fusion mascara.

10. For lips, I first put on some Chapstick!
11. Then I used the Maybelline lip stick in Pink Quartz; 115.
12. For some shine, I used the Maybelline Shinylicious in Hit or Miss!

Here is the finished look!

If you want to know prices of anything, you can go to and type the product in the search bar! I don't remember the prices of everything :)
