You want to lift and separate? There is a drugstore mascara for you. Want to plump and add volume? There’s a tube for that too. Some of the best drugstore mascaras rival high end brands because they are made in the same factories or by the same parent company. Take L’Oreal and Lancôme for example. No matter what you want, there’s little chance you can’t find it or a combination of it at the drugstore. Depending on what you’re looking for, you may be able to buy just one tube or double it up with a couple different brands to get the lashes you like best. READ MORE

Drugstore red lipstick is nothing to shake a stick at. Drugstore reds can deliver with beautiful, highly pigmented color and smooth texture pay off comparable to or exceeding what some department store brands offer. Despite the fact that they come shrink wrapped or taped to high heaven (we’ve all had that: Is this a CD or tube of lipstick, because I can’t tell right now, moment), they are worthy of your time and and that extra few minutes trying to get them open without breaking a nail.

In Part 2 of our Best Drugstore Foundations series, we’re hoping to help change how you search for and find the best drugstore foundation for your skin. We’ve broken your drugstore foundation options down by brand, skin tone, undertone and skin type matching and based on how they hold up all day on skin to help you find your best match. READ MORE

Your undertone is very important when it comes to finding the right foundation shade. If your foundation does not match your skin’s undertone, the color could show up on your skin as ashy white, orange or pink.

There’s no time like the present to finally own a full matching, quality set of makeup brushes. But we realize, price dilemma. We’ve all been there, pinning and cyber shopping brush options only to chicken out right before we hit the purchase button. One brush for $16 or so we can justify. Maybe even that amazing foundation brush that’s a little more than double that, but a whole set of brushes that will put us back a pair of shoes, a weeks worth of Starbucks and maybe having to skip paying the light bill for a month? Um no, and our TV financial evangelist, Suze Orman, would not approve of such financial foolishness. Balling on a budget is always a good idea until one can afford a splurge which is why you’ll be happy to know that this Premium Synthetic Kabuki Makeup Brush Set–the entire set, the whole kit and kaboodle–costs only…drum roll please.

Drugstore mascaras that make your eyes pop have a new rival. This stuff goes on like Dior, separates like Urban Decay and costs as much as L’Oreal. This mascara caught us by surprise. It was a stealth beauty attack.

The art of contouring your face is a skill that anyone who is into makeup should try to master. It’s one way to transform your face and highlight your best features. When done well, it is a clever way to make the unique features of your face pop and enhance your bone structure. Contouring accentuates the facial features you already have and in some cases can give the illusion of what you wish you had. READ MORE
