Budget Beauty Natural Makeup Look

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Everything used in this look can be found at the drugstore. It's a very natural look that could be worn everyday. Of course, you can create your own personal look with different coloured eyeshadow or lipstick, but the products used here are some of my budget favourites!

Photos are done by Clarence of @thebabylens! Much love to him for helping me take some great shots! 

I start by applying my base using L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation (please excuse my ugly chipped nails!!). 

I really really like this! The formula is great for a drugstore foundation that works very well with my skin. It's definitely going into my all-time drugstore favourites. I tend to get very oily and this demi-matte foundation is able to keep the greasy look at bay while still giving a natural, glowing look to the skin. The coverage can be built up, but it's generally a medium to full coverage. 

I use the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer to cover my undereye circles and conceal any other spots or redness. 

I set my base using the (discontinued) Maybelline Dream Matte Powder. I've hit pan on it for a while but it's on its last leg. I'm so sad that I won't be able to repurchase this but if you're looking for another great powder, the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is what I've also been using. That one you can purchase now haha.

I fill my eyebrows using The FaceShop Style My Eyebrow Pencil

I've mentioned this next product countless times because of how effortless it is to use, its great cost, and the beautiful long-lasting finish on the lids. This Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze is another favourite for a subtle, bronzy colour on the lids. 

I'm using it as a base for my powder eyeshadow.

I'm using the Covergirl Eyeshadow Trio in Shimmering Sands for this natural look.

I'm using the middle shade as an all-over lid colour so I'm generously sweeping that on. 

I'm using the shade on the very left as the crease colour in order to add some dimension to my lids.

Lastly, I'm using the shade on the very right to highlight my inner eye corner and browbone. Then it's blending away to make sure there are no harsh lines and the shadow looks seamless.

Ok, so this may be the only product in this entire look that's NOT budget friendly... but legit there is no other liner that can withstand my oily lids other than the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper

For mascara I used the L'Oreal Miss Manga Voluminous Waterproof Mascara. It's not my favourite drugstore mascara but it does hold a curl well.

For blush I used the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso for the slightly warmer, peachy tone. 

Using the Body Shop Bronzing Powder,  I warm up my complexion and also do a bit of contour under my almost non-existent cheekbones. :P It's probably a bit hard to see now since the daylight is almost gone. *cry*

For the very last step of it all, I use the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Barcelona for a rich, berry lip. It has great staying power. 

That's it! That's the finished look and now I'm ready to go out. :)

What are some of your favourite budget beauty products?

Until next time, Des
