YouTube beauty community are saving our lives, and we don’t even know it. Make up artist are showcasing their skills for the world to learn. From simple shadow looks to serious contour series. However, most experienced make up YouTubers are using high end products and that can be a little intimidating for us beginners.
So if you are a beginner to the “beat yo face” community, don’t fret. There are tons of drug store brands that will give you the same look for a fraction of the price.
My favorite brand of all time is elf, short for eyes lips and face. They provide products that are user friendly, effective in cost and easy to get your hands on. You can find elf products in various drugs stores, but my favorite place to purchase their products is Target.
Brushes (black set only) — For $30, you can get a flawless finish using these brushes. They’re very soft and easy to hold. The fan brush is amazing for applying highlighter.
Liquid eyeliner — $2 value, high end results. If you’re learning how to apply liquid liner, this will be your best friend. The pointy brush allow you to create the perfect wing. I’ve been using this product since I’ve started wearing makeup.
Another great brand for cost effective makeup, is NYX cosmetics. NYX has the best everything; from lip products to eyeshadows. Their price margin isn’t to different from elf, although they do have some “expensive” products to be a drug store brand. You will always catch NYX in my makeup bag.
Butter Gloss: $5 in value, If you are looking for a moisturizing lip product with shine and color, then you’re in luck. This product is pretty thick in consistency, so DO NOT apply to dry lips (it tends to turn white in the corners of your mouth). However, this product is still great for those quick makeup looks and you don’t want to go super glam with a lip stick, this is definitely a great alternative.
Lip Lingerie: For $7 you can get the Kylie Lipkit look. It’s available in various nude shades, including the trendy brown lip. Although I haven’t tried the product myself, I’ve heard great things about it. So far I’ve only seen it online, but I would check Ulta as well. I cannot wait to get my hands on it.
