Skin Care for Beginners | Drugstore Products

I wish that I religiously used sunscreen growing up.

I wish that I understood the value of eye cream in my twenties.

I wish that I had been interested in maintaining my skin’s health.

But, in reality, my skin care routine was minimal to nonexistent for most of my twenties. It didn’t interest me, nor did I have the time or money to focus on things of those nature.

It wasn’t until I turned thirty that I started to appreciate what a quality skin care routine could mean for the face that I present to the world. Incidentally, that’s about the time that I started to enjoy yoga as well. Maybe there’s something about putting yourself first and enjoying the luxury of “me time” that you learn to appreciate around that age…?

Drugstore Beauty Finds

I may be madly in love with my new Dior Forever Compact and live for visits to the Chanel counter at Barney’s, but my approach to beauty is similar to fashion – I love mixing high and low. That means that my make-up bag has a carefully tested selection of killer drugstore beauty finds that I swear by!

Mascara is something that I can’t leave the house without. I’ve tried everything from YSL’s Mascara Volume Effect to Benefit’s BADGal {a regular in my rotation} – But I have to confess that one of my all-time favorite’s is CoverGirl Bombshell Volume Mascara. Not only have I been asked if I’m wearing false lashes, but I’ve had make-up artists ask what my lash secret is. You know your mascara is doing its job when professionals are noticing!

The Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze Glisten Blush Stick is a must in my make-up bag or clutch for a night out because it’s a serious multi-tasker. Eye shadow, blush, lipstick, highlighter… There’s nothing this little stick can’t do. My go-to hue is Coral Sheen but there are some gorgeous shades out there to try!

Want a super soft lip balm with a hint of color? J’adore Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal Lip Balm Crystal Kiss. It’s the perfect choice when you want a little boost but lipstick or thick gloss is just too much.

Yes To is one of my favorite drugstore brands – Their products are clean and effective, just what I need. I especially love their grapefruit line and always travel with Yes to Grapefruit Brightening Facial Towelettes.

What’s YOUR favorite drugstore beauty or make-up find?
