Make Up of the Day – Drugstore Makeover

About Mrs. O.

This blog is for the average woman. The everyday woman. The budget friendly woman. The woman who can only spare 40 minutes to get herself ready in the morning. The working woman. The vivacious woman. The woman who wants to be healthy, confident, and beautiful. 

With still so much to accomplish, I have realized how much my story and daily routines have the possibility of sparking sharing amongst women, and the ability to help someone else.


So this past weekend my house guest here all the way from Lagos, Nigeria, asked me to teach her a simple, natural, everyday glam look. While I am NO makeup artist, I love to play in makeup and watch all of the fabulous youtube videos out there that teach me how to apply it! 

We made trips to Ulta Beauty and CVS to pick up a few extra items that she didn't have, to create this "soft beat" look:




Products Used:

CoverGirl - Golden's TruNaked Eyeshadow Palette $11.99 

NYX - Photo Loving Primer $13

Mary Kay Foundation (Previously Purchased - Not Sold at Ulta Beauty/CVS)

Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared Mascara $6.99

What kinds of drugstore products and brands do you all love and use?

    I have been trying drug store brands lately. Black Radiance has been my go to. I purchased two eye shadow trio and a lipstick duo. I absolutely love them. NYX lip liners are also a favorite.

    You’re not the first person to recommend Black Radiance, so I think that I may need to give them a whirl! NYX is definitely a keeper though as well. Thanks Trina!
