Beauty bloggers on YouTube look fierce but let’s face it (ha, I made a pun), they mostly use fancy AF makeup that can be too expensive for we common folk.

Because it’s not exactly cost efficient, it’s difficult to get a jump on every poppin’ technique and beauty product backed by many bloggers. So are those of us who have bills to pay doomed to not look properly primed, contoured, baked, and strobed? Hardly!

Check it, there are many beauty bloggers that have listened to their audience bemoaning their use of only pricey products to achieve their finished looks. So many beauty bloggers are showing how to use less pricey drugstore makeup to look the look.

So first off, let’s get you the tools you need. Beauty blogger Sharifa Easmin’s must-have drugstore makeup items are the best way to start your first makeup kit. She lists drug store brand items that are just as good as high-end products, if not better.
