If I had to buy an entirely new makeup collection from Target
Reader Questions: the “no poo” method.
Is the title of this blog post long enough for you?
I’ve been thinking about doing something like this for awhile. I thought it could possibly answer some questions that I get about drugstore brands versus professional/high end brands. So let me set up the scenario for you.
Let’s say my entire makeup bag went missing. Perhaps I was flying back from my vacation in Figi with my husband and somehow the airline lost my bag that contained my makeup bag. This airline would not be Southwest Airlines because they are the best and would never loose my bag ::cough-delta-cough:: .
Let’s also say I had a very important event to attend the night I realize my makeup is gone. Maybe it’s a party, or something where I’d like to look “my best”.
After shedding a single tear (or thirty), I would compose myself and drive over to Target. And here is how I would furnish my new makeup collection if Target was the only store I could get to.
First, I’d hit up Revlon for my foundation. I’d grab the Nearly Naked liquid foundation. I would be tempted by the Loreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Foundation, but I haven’t heard anything about it yet so I would hold off.
I’d toss the Loreal Visible Lift Color Blush in Peach Gold into my
basket, I mean cart.
I’d pick up this e.l.f. High Definition Translucent Powder to set my makeup. It’s kind of messy, but it does the job.
For under-eye concealer, I’d grab the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. It looks creamy and nice for the under-eye area.
For eyeshadow, I’d pick the e.l.f. Eyelid Primer, and this really pretty quad from Maybelline. I’d finish the eye makeup shopping with an eyeliner from Revlon in Black, and my favorite CoverGirl Mascara. Oh, and I’d curl my lashes with Revlon’s Eyelash curler.
The CoverGirl Brow and Eye Makers Pencil in Blonde would finish off my eyebrows.
And finally, for lips, I’d grab Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Love That Pink.
As far as brushes go, I’d work with this set.
And that’s about it. If you were ever wondering what drugstore brands I would lean towards, here is a great example!
