Drugstore Beauty Finds!

Today we are going to have Erica from Style of a Songbird. She is one of my best friends and my blogger companion :) She has been teaching me so much about what make up and hair products are good (she used to work in a salon so she has the knowledge!).


hey there! i'm erica from style of a songbird and i am so excited to share with you some of my favorite drugstore make up finds. these are a few that have proven to be tried and true for me. enjoy! fave drugstore makeup
1 // physician's formula mineral wear loose powder / $11.00
i have combination skin so i like a mineral powder that provides medium to full coverage. this stuff is amazing! in the winter i use it over my liquid foundation and in the summer, this is my foundation. it lasts all day and applies very evenly. 

2 // elf mineral infused face primer / $6.00
just started using this a few weeks ago. and i realized today that this really does work! i don't have to re-apply my make up at all. it makes my skin feel like silk and provides a smooth canvas before i apply my make up. 

3 // elf eye primer / $3.00
similar to the face primer, this ensures that my eye shadow and liner aren't going to budge all day. i can tell a real difference if i skip this step. and it lasts for-ever! this is so worth the $3.00.  believe me. 

4 // cover girl lash blast mascara / $7.00
there are so many mascaras to choose from. but this is my current fave. i am already blessed with long lashes, but this stuff adds major volume! the small bristles really get each individual lash. plus, the orange tube is just fun. 

5 // physician's formula conceal rx physician's strength concealer (yeah long name, right?) / $8.00
anybody else have some mega dark under eye circles? what about the occasional "blemish?" well this stuff is phenomenal at covering up both. a little bit goes a long way. it is the best covering and lasting concealer i have found. my make up artist friend even commented at how "strong" it was when she was taking off my make up to play with some fun colors. it gets my vote!   

physician's formula and cover girl can be found at most major drug and grocery stores. 
you can find elf make up in some stores or online

i would love to answer any questions you might have about these products or if you need any other suggestions for a cheaper but effective alternatives for make up products!
