Something that I always feel is lacking from my makeup drawer is a nice palette. When you can’t afford luxury makeup brands and are forced to regularly shop drugstore products, it can be pretty hard to find much more than an eyeshadow palette. Lately I’ve noticed that Maybelline has been killing it with their newest products. My favorites as of late are the Brow Drama Pro Palette and the Master Contour by FaceStudio.
The brow kit is a dream and has officially changed my eyebrow game. This set comes with wax (far left) and two powders. I begin by using the wax to shape my eyebrows and then begin filling them in with the middle shade. The wax isn’t sticky or clumpy and ensures the hairs stay in place. Finally, I use the highlight shade to help shape my eyebrows.
The Brow Drama Pro Palette has an ample amount of color options, coming in the shades blonde, auburn, soft brown and deep brown. My hair is naturally blonde, meaning my eyebrows look almost nonexistent whenever I don’t fill them in. Naturally, I bought my bro palette in the blonde shade and although the colors look fairly dark, the shade is a perfect fit for me. It blends in nicely with the natural color of my brows and comes out looking slightly darker than my hair.
Although this product is nice on its own, I also like to apply the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in the shade blonde. I do this to make sure they stay in place, but mostly because it makes them darker and I’m really into bold brows.
The only problem I found was that the palette I bought had the brushes missing from it. Although I rarely use the brushes included in makeup, it’s something to look out for in case that’s important to you.
Another goody from Maybelline is the Master Contour by FaceStudio. I’ve been using this palette in my everyday makeup routine, because the shades are perfect for my complexion. Not only are my eyebrows ridiculously blonde, but I’m also so pale that I might as well be see through. This palette comes in two shades: light to medium and medium to deep.
After contouring, I finish by applying the blush to the apples of the cheeks and highlighting on my cheekbones, cupids bow and nose. This product is pigmented and easy to blend, leaving the skin looking natural and sun kissed. The highlight in particular is stunning and the color isn’t too sparkly.
As far as drugstore makeup goes, Maybelline is one of my go to’s. Their products have consistently impressed me and I know that I can usually rely on them to meet my needs. What’s one of your favorite drugstore makeup brands? Suggestions?
