Top six makeup drugstore deals

Posted on October 21, 2014

Teenbook is a mentorship program offered to teens at Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta. Any teen staying at the Calgary House can choose a mentor and learn fun and exciting new skills! Our teens have learned how to play guitar, write songs, learn how to play football, makeup application and experiment with different hairstyles.

Since some of our teenagers in the House are learning new makeup skills, we thought we would pass on some knowledge from one of our employees, Janelle who does freelance makeup in her spare time!

These are her top six drugstore deals for makeup products:
Covergirl Professional Natural Lash Mascara

This clear mascara is perfect for using on eyelashes and brows. For an eyelash mascara, it is one way to pop and define your natural lashes. I use this mascara as a brow gel to hold eyebrow hairs in place. I use this product daily and on practically every client. It’s inexpensive and works amazing!

Neutrogena Shine Control Powder

This is one very affordable way to ensure your skin won’t look shiny at the end of the day. My sister and I have tried a ton of products out there from VERY high end to drugstore. This is one of the best products on the market. It works great for oily skin and combination skin. Surely, you don’t want your perfect makeup job to look oily in a few hours. Try this!

Maybelline 14-hour Lipstick

Can it be? A 14-hour wear lipstick that is this cheap? Well, I wouldn’t say this lipstick exactly stays on your lips for 14 hours without having to reapply; however, I will say we were so surprised with this product! It goes on so smooth and creamy, but has a matte finish. My sister and I have loved the colours and they do stay put longer than most of the other high-end products.

Loreal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream

Moisturizing primer lotion that hydrates, corrects, evens, and perfects skin tone. You are able to wear by itself on those days you don’t feel like “wearing makeup.” Apply under foundation to use as a primer for a smoother, even look. Best BB cream I’ve used!

Milani Baked Blush

Any shade is beautiful! This product rivals the expensive blushes. It creates a soft look that will last you all day. The shimmer gives a natural glow and when combined with a matte colour it looks gorgeous!

EcoTools brushes

Completely eco-friendly and made from natural and recycled materials. Even though I have purchased higher end brushes from MAC and Crown Brush for my clients, I insist on using EcoTools as backup brushes for myself. They are great quality and perfect for those who wear minimal makeup.
