Drugstore Makeup Tutorial - Smokey Eyes with a Pop of Color

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial! This entire look was done using drugstore makeup.  I think it's really important to show how you can create great looks with affordable products.  It's important to know what to look for and how to use them...I show you some really good drugstore items that I use on the regular.  The look is a very wearable smokey eye with a pop of color.  This is my first time using the whole zoom in method to film the tutorial, lemme know if you guys like it!

Check out the video tutorial!

Here's What I Used: 


NYX eyeshadow base in skin tone
Neutrogena Nourishing Eye quad in Tea Biscuit
L'Oreal Liquid Lineur Intense in Carbon Black
Napoleon Perdis Eyeshadow Trio in Amsterdam
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown
Ardell #107 lashes
Duo Lash Adhesive in Dark
L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara

Rimmel Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer
Revlon Beyond Natural Concealer in Medium
Rimmel Cool Matte Foundation
Cornsilk Translucent Pressed Powder
NYC Bronzer in Terracotta Tan
Jemma Kidd Color Adapt Cheek Color
Evian Spray
Elf Bronzer in Warm Tan

L'Oreal Lipstick in Fairest Nude

I also used all drugstore/craft store brushes.

The final look!

I took these pictures using my camcorder.  It's not quite as clear as the digital camera pictures I usually look but it's a lot easier than switching memory cards.  Let me know what you all think.

Hope you enjoyed, Ciao Bellas!

FTC Disclosure:  I bought all items with my own money.

I also have the same lipstick.:) i love the color. However, after i reapplied the color and finish it with a lipgloss, it starts to look muddy... I'm not sure whether the weather is to blame..

Love the zoom camera! Some products are not that cheap in my country. For example, a L'oreal eye liner can be 13 dollars, which is good in dollars, but when you exchange to my money is a lot for an eye liner! Still a good price, but not exactly what we can call cheap.

The look is really nice!
