The drugstore neutral look

Now I get I'm kind of behind with the whole neutral look as this probably would be more suited to back to school however I thought I would share it with you anyway as I really love all of these products. 

So for foundation I absolutely love the Maybelline Dream satin liquid. This is the most gorgeous satin (as you may have guessed) finish foundation. It looks so flawless on the skin and looks beautifully natural on the skin. If any of you are on the lookout for a natural foundation for school this is the perfect one and I feel like it would work beautifully for all skin types. Concealer wise I really love the Essence Camouflage concealer. This one works nicely both under the eyes and on any blemishes. Although it is very thick and high coverage it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and sits beautifully even on my dry skin. 

For the rest of the face I've been loving Soap and glory's Solar powder, this is a split pan bronzer with a deeper and a lighter shade. I tend to do a pretty even swirl in the pan and I just love the way it looks. It has a very slight radiance to it meaning it just makes the skin look so healthy. For blush I have a classic, I feel like Rimmel Santa rose is one of the products everyone has tried. It is a really pretty peachy shade with a slight sheen again like the bronzer giving the skin a healthy glow. For the everyday I don't tend to reach for a bright highlight I prefer something more glowy like the Maybelline master strobe liquid in the light shade. This is a really lovely pinky glowy product which just makes the most beautiful glow to the skin. 

For brows I have been using the the NYX micro brow pencil which is really lovely for a natural but polished brow. I always set my brow with something and I really like the New look brow gel which is incredibly similar to the Benefit Gimme brow. For eyes I have pulled out a long time favourite which is the gorgeous Maybelline colour tattoo in On and on bronze which is a lovely Champagne bronze shade perfect to add a little colour to the lid. Finally to finish off I have been obsessed with the L'oreal Paradise mascara which is the best drugstore mascara I have ever tried. It is so lengthening and just makes the lashes look so gorgeous and fluttery. 

So that's it for today. I'd love to know what your go to budget products are for a neutral look.

  2. I love that NYX pencil, it's such a good dupe for Anastasia and much cheaper. I have a bit of a soft spot for expensive foundations but you can't go past Rimmel for a good affordable one - powder, too!
