Drugstore Makeup Tutorial for Summer 2011!

LiveLoveLaughs1209 requested a drugstore makeup tutorial. At first I was like...drugstore? But I own very few drugstore products! However, I took the opportunity to get an education in affordable makeup. My naivete was short lived when the first product I purchased was a total DUD! So buyer's beware - Revlon Cream Shadow Quads are bad news bears! However, I found some really nice drugstore products that I am really starting to love! Enjoy!

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector in Light #10
  • Milani Minerals Baked Bronzer in Soleil #5
