From eyeshadow, to blushes, to crazy lipsticks, makeup is always fun to play around with! The gorgeous looks you can create using a little bit of foundation, shadow, and sheer creativity are almost endless. If you’re a big fan of experimenting with makeup and trying new looks and styles, odds are you go through products pretty fast.

Of course, we all wish we had an endless supply of funds that awarded us the ability to fill our makeup bags with only the highest end products, but when you’re a normal person on a normal budget, the drugstore is your saving grace. Maybelline, Covergirl, no matter your favorite brand, if you search hard enough you can find some real gemsย amongst the aisles in your favorite little convenience stores.

Once you’ve built up your stock of high-quality drugstore beauty products, try one (or a few), of these fun makeup tutorials.
