Makeup of the Day: Drugstore Work Makeup

Hello beauties,

Today is my first day back to work. While I wish I was still on holidays, I kinda like the idea of putting on makeup again. Today, I bring to you a simple work makeup look using just drugstore products. The whole look took me about 20 to 30 minutes to put together.


1. Klara Cosmetics Zero Pores No Fine Lines Primer*

This is a great drugstore primer for oily skin gals. It has a silicone feel which I don’t mind but I know a lot of people don’t like the feel of silicone.  

2. Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation- 400 Natural Beige*

You don’t see me using this much on my Instagram as is its quite light for me. But for the purpose of this blog post and variety I decided to use it. It’s a great medium to full coverage, long lasting foundation. The only down side is the limited shade range.

3. Thin Lizzy Crème Concealer- Pacific Sun*

4. Revlon Sculpt and Highlight Contour Kit-Medium*

I’ve been giving this palette a lot of love! After applying my concealer I applied some of the Banana shade under my eyes to set the concealer. Onto the cheeks, mixing the bronzer and contour shade I applied this in a 3 shape using the contour brush provided. I love this palette to create a subtle sculpted look.

5. The Balm Instain Blush- Swiss Dot*

This is  great long wearing blush. If you’re on the hunt for a matte blush that’s long wearing, then I highly recommend checking out The Balm Instain blushes. After blush, I applied the highlight shade from the Revlon Sculpt and Highlight Contour Kit*.

6. Booki Brow Trio Compact- Dark Brown/ Charcoal*

This brow powder isn’t from the drugstore, but I haven’t featured it before, so here it is! I’ve used the dark brown shade to fill in my brows.

7. Nude by Nature- Natural Wonders Eyeshadow Palette*

Starting with the cool tone matte brown, I think its shade 9, I applied this into the crease and lower lash line. For the lid colour, I applied the shade 7, which I think is a close dupe for MAC Woodwinked. When using these eyeshadows, I was super impressed by the quality and pigmentation. They were easy to blend and offered a great colour selection.


8. L’Oreal False Lash Butterfly Sculpt Mascara*

9. Wet n Wild Lipstick- Bare It All

For a nude lipstick option, I decided to show you Wet n Wild lipstick in Bare It All. This is a beautiful universally flattering nude lipstick, that’s also super cheap!


10. Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine Lipstick- Red-y Set Go!*  

Rimmel do a beautiful range of lipsticks. I like that this lipstick range as its really creamy and moisturising.

  1. Ooh what a great, simple back to work look! I love the contour palette from Revlon x Chloe too! I used it for my NYE look and it went down a treat, so glad I got it! I would love to try the Nude By Nature palette, it looks nice.

    What is your thoughts on the Thin Lizzy concealer?
