As much as we love our holy grail high-end makeup, there are many drugstore finds out there that work just as great (sometimes, even better). Take it from makeup artists who have probably tried everything–they add a couple of trusty drugstore items in their beauty arsenal because not only do they cost so much less, they perform the best.
1. Maybelline Magnum Mascara
“I love Maybelline’s mascaras! I apply it on top of falsies and then I would press it down together to make the falsies look more natural. This mascara is really black which defines your eyes more and it doesn’t run too”.
Maybelline Volum’ Express The Magnum Mascara, PHP 399
2. K-Palette Brow Pen
“I love using K-Palette’s brow pen on celebrities. I do it in strokes to make it look more natural. Even if it’s light and sheer, if you draw on your brows, it tends to look overly done”.
3. Simple Micellar Water
“I swear by this Micellar water for cleansing and removing makeup. It gets the job done while being gentle on the skin”.
Simple Micellar Cleansing Water, PHP 499
“I use lash glue as a brow mascara to achieve bushy brows. It works great in making your brow hair stay put all the time”.
