I think drugstore makeup can get a really bad reputation. Growing up in the 90s and early 00s, I feel like drugstore makeup was dry, not pigmented, and just… blah. But these days, drugstore makeup has come a long way. A really long way. Drugstore makeup can be super pigmented, creamy, and completely (for lack of a better word) amazing.
Don’t you love how Miranda’s frugal face makes her eyes pop? She has the most gorgeous blue eyes!
I tried (but didn’t have to try hard) to show you that drugstore makeup can really pack a punch. You don’t have to stick to sweet, subtle looks (although, I love Miranda’s sweet and subtle look). You can go for full out bold, bright, FUN!
Now for the details of my frugal face…
