5 Drugstore Makeup Products to Help You Slay Fall Semester

Makeup is a great way to enhance your inner beauty and make you feel more confident than ever. If you’re anything like me, doing your makeup is not only therapeutic, but it’s the best part of your morning routine. Being a college student makes it difficult to splurge on high-end makeup products, but luckily these drugstore makeup products make it easier to channel your inner beauty guru on a budget.

  1. 1. Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Flawless Foundation

    This foundation is perfect for everyday and special occasions. It’s also great for oily skin and has amazing buildable coverage. The best part? You can get it for less than $10 at your local drugstore!

  2. 2. Elf Instant Lift Brow Pencil

    Eyebrows are arguably the most critical step to any makeup look. The Elf instant lift brow pencil makes it easy to achieve flawless brows in a matter of minutes. With six different shades to choose from and an attached brow brush, this pencil is ideal for everyday and on-the-go glam. It’s available at most drugstores for $2.

  3. 3. L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer

    If I had to choose any product as my holy grail, this is the one. The L.A. Girl pro concealer can be used to color correct, contour, highlight, and even as a foundation! Its creamy consistency is perfectly blendable atop any foundation, and luckily you can find this at the drugstore for less than $5.

  4. 4. Eco Tools Perfecting Blender Sponge

    The perfect makeup look starts with the perfect brushes and tools. One of the most popular blending sponges, The Beauty Blender, retails for $20 at Sephora. Luckily, the drugstore has multiple options that work wonders for half of the price. My favorite choice for a flawless foundation application is the Eco Tools Perfecting blender. It ranges from just $5-$10 at the drugstore!

  5. 5. KISS Blowout Lash

    Let’s be honest; a makeup look is not complete without the perfect pair of false lashes. Of all the drugstore options, I have found that my favorite drugstore lashes are the KISS Blowout Lash. With just the right amount of volume wispiness, these lashes are the key to taking your look to the next level. A five-pack can be purchased for less than $10 in-store or online!

These are makeup products that I use every time I do my make, and even when I compete in pageants. I hope that these products help you slay your favorite makeup looks this fall semester and help you feel more confident than ever!
