Because I am using all drugstore products, I had to find a drugstore eye primer. I opted for the white jumbo pencil that serves as a base to make my colored shadows pop. Sadly this did not last all day so I did have to blend it in with my finger towards the end due to creasing. I used a green shadow on the lids, layered red on top of taupe in the crease, applied brown to the outer third of my eyes, and highlighted my brow bone with a champagne shade. With a dark drown pencil, I smudged it out with a small brush. With a brownish black pencil, I lined two-thirds of my bottom lash line to make my eyes appear bigger and smudged that out as well. I filled in my brows with a taupe kohl pencil and finished off the eyes with a good coat of mascara.

I did my favorite lip combo followed by wine colored lipstick that I toned down with the MLBB lip gloss.

For my face, I used liquid foundation, concealed underneath my eyes and around my nose, and followed up with a bit of a dusting of powder to set everything in place. I was shocked at how pigmented the bronzing powder came out and ended up having to blend away any harsh lines with my liquid foundation brush.

I curled my hair — you can see me in my headband that I put on before doing my makeup; I remembered to take it off for the next picture!
I hope you enjoyed this drugstore makeup look. I tend to look over drugstore products when it comes to eye shadows because I have other palettes I love playing with so this was a very nice change. It has opened my eyes to start using more and more of my drugstore gems!
