My Current Beauty Regimen — Drugstore Beauty Products that I LOVE!

I am a girlie girl – 100%. I love going shopping… especially for makeup. I don’t necessarily always feel the NEED to wear makeup. I go plenty of places without it during my week. However, I just LOVE it. I think it is fun to try all of the different brands, colors, and techniques. I LOVE watching YouTube videos and learning new ways to apply makeup. I like to try the latest trends – even if I don’t actually leave the house wearing those trends.

My husband does NOT love my love for makeup. He usually sees makeup as a ridiculous waste of money. He has a heart of gold and loves me for who I am WITHOUT makeup. I love him for that… and I will frequently go without wearing any makeup because I’m comfortable like that and I know he likes it better that way.

……but I still LOVE makeup.

I feel like my skin type changes with the wind, so I frequently try different brands, colors, and textures to get a feel for what works best for my skin at various points during the year. For example, I can get away with a dewy look during the fall/winter months… but it literally melts off of my face in the summer. My skin also changes depending on where I am in my monthly cycle – so I try to factor that in when I’m getting ready, too. Because I feel like I’ve tried every kind of makeup under the sun, I have a respect for both high end and drugstore brands.

Let me BREAK HERE to say this – I do NOT change my skin CARE routine. I know what works for my face and I stick to it year round. I don’t cut corners or penny pinch when it comes to taking care of my skin, either. My 100% go-to always-use no-matter-what skin care brand is Clinique. I use the three step system for combination skin. I’m not going to link what I use in this post because I feel like your best option would be to go to a Clinique counter and have a discussion with someone about your skin type so that they can match you perfectly.

I also have fallen in LOVE with this Clinique “Take The Day Off” Cleansing Balm. OH MY STARS, it’s so wonderful.

THE POINT IS – Find what skin care routine works for you and your skin and stick to it! Clinique is what works for me and I certainly spend the money to take care of my skin! 

Okay – back to makeup.

As I was getting ready this morning, I thought about how many of my favorite everyday products are NOT high end products. I have SO much makeup, a mixture of high end and drug store brands, and I seem to always gravitate back to certain things this season. I thought it might be interesting to document it here on Wee Share, to share what I currently love with all of you, and then do it again in a few months to see what stays the same and what changes. Like I said – I feel like my skin changes with the wind, so it will be fascinating to watch how my product preferences change with the seasons.

My makeup routine isn’t anything spectacular. I don’t have my own YouTube channel (nor do I plan on starting one). I’m just an average girl that loves knowing what works for other people… so I thought I’d share what has been working for me.

(I’m linking all of these to Amazon for a quick guide, however, these are easy to find drugstore brands so you may be better off going to your local Target or Walmart! 🙂 )

  • OKAY so I definitely fill in my eyebrows everyday, however, it’s not a drugstore brand. I received an eyebrow pencil from Ipsy (I LOVE IPSY)… and I’ve really been enjoying it ever since receiving it. SO, below you will find a link to the eyebrow pencil that I’m using AND a link to join Ipsy. (Seriously, I love Ipsy and feel like I just received a Christmas present every month when it arrives!)
  • Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand
  • HERE IS WHERE YOU NEED TO GO TO SIGN UP FOR IPSY. Seriously, you will love it… and if you don’t, just cancel it!

Mascara:

I’m also pretty picky about Mascara… and I use multiple mascaras everyday. Here are my favorites:

Lipstick:

    Thanks for sharing all of the makeup that you use. I like that they’re affordable. How sweet of your husband to like the way you look without makeup on.
