Review & Tutorial: Holiday Makeup Look ft. Canadian Drugstore Beauty Items*


I have created a few Holiday posts on my blog already, but none that is strictly dedicated to drugstore products. As such, I decided to do a post now and try out my new ring light my husband got me for christmas and include a short video as well! (for those who are followers already, will know that I do like making minute long videos I can just put onto my Instagram page!) I think that the below look is quite easy to achieve and the glitter lids paired with the red lip (or you can switch it out to a nude one) would be great to add some Holiday sparkle without being too bold!


Below is an overview of all the products used to create the look above and can be found at your drugstore (including the makeup brushes) - If you're interested in seeing my mini review of each products, then just keep on reading below.



FACE PRODUCTS:
Physicians Formula - Rose All Day ~ A great hydrating serum with a pearlescent finish to make you glow from within. Not sticky at all and sinks into the skin immediately while tightening it.

Physicians Formula - Spotlight Illuminating Primer (Glow) ~ I loved this primer - it is SO glowy and I honestly find this comparable to the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow but more powerful! You can very much use this as a liquid highlighter as well, or mix it in with your foundation for dewiness. On its own, it blurs skin's imperfections while giving a glow to the skin - you can see it in action in the video to appreciate its true beauty.

NYX - #Nofilter Finishing Powder ~ I have been using this for a few years - though it says its a finishing powder, I use it on my light makeup days as honestly it gives you a sheer coverage with a tint that's good enough to give you some coverage. I wear this typically when I go to work.

Revlon Photo Ready - Insta-Sculpt (001 Contouring Palette) ~ great drugstore contour that blends well and just does what it needs to do!

Physicians Formula - Mineral Glow Pearls (Champagne) ~ This is a wonderful layering product - you can see it reflect the light in the video below with just one swipe.

Wet N' Wild - Photofocus Concealer (Light/Medium Beige) ~ I have been using this for a few years too and have written about it on the blog. This is honestly one of the best affordable concealers at the drugstore and it WORKS. I will continue to use it!

PIXI Beauty - Nourishing Lip Polish ~ I like to use this in the beginning of my makeup application to just moisturize my lips, especially if I'm wearing a liquid lip. You don't want dry flakey lips.

Physicians Formula - The Healthy Lip (Fight Free Red-icals) ~ A great whipped like consistency for liquid lipstick. Pigmented, comfortable and weightless on the lips. This is a beautiful holiday red.


EYE PRODUCTS:
Covergirl - Liquid Liner ~ extremely matte black liquid liner. The tip is a bit flimsy and long but it is thin and pointed enough to just do detail work and give you that fine line on the lash line. 

Covergirl - Mascara and Physicians Formula - Killer Curves Mascara (in video forgot to put in image above) ~ Standard mascara - matte black and has an hourglass like wand that grabs at my short lashes and thickens them nicely. It was able to keep my curled lashes and it didn't fall straight. 

NYX Professional Makeup - Love Contours All Eye and Face Sculpting Palette ~ I HIGHLY Recommend everyone to purchase this palette, its approx $27 and worth every penny. I did my brows eyes with this palette and the shadows are a dream to work with. Pigmented, blends well and honestly performs better than high end products I've tried from luxury brands.

QUO - Metallic Eyeshadow Set ~ If you always wanted to try cream eyeshadows, this is a really nice drugstore option. It has great glitter payoff without looking tacky at all and is very comprable to the Stila ones but ALOT more affordable if you want to try it out!

Hard Candy - Glitteratzi Glitter Gel Palette ~ This palette is literally as it says, glitter pigments in a gel formula. It is not too wet or uncomfortable to wear, you dip your finger in and just directly pat on the lid. I would recommend the finger as the best application method, again you will see it in action below.

BRUSHES:
Hard Candy - Highlighter Brush (came in highlighter set)
EcoTools - Angled Liner
EcoTools - Full Blush
Eco Tools - Defined Crease
Wet n' Wild - P15 Brush
Bdellium Tools - 714 Brush

Below you will find the video I filmed for my Instagram page with my new ring light, courtesy of my santa hubby (hence its right under a minute)! Do you guys like these short videos? Or do you want longer ones? I'd love to know how long you'd spend ideally just watching a video!


Until next time, XO - M.
