Drugstore makeup

This video of Shalini Kutti blew my mind away! And a full face with just 4 products? Whaaaa!

Growing up, I'd often observe my mom put on her makeup in front of the mirror and it left me so mesmerized that a little makeup can make someone feel so good about themselves! I was fascinated with makeup ever since but my makeup journey began in college, and like every newbie, I had no idea what I was doing. So I stuck to wearing this peach-colored affordable lipstick that we call drugstore makeup today because in 2008 we didn't have Instagram or beauty influencers to bank on!

If 18 year old me knew which products to buy under a budget and how to do a full face with drugstore makeup, I'd definitely have better photos to post for #ThrowbackThursday! Thankfully, today we have beauty influencers like Shalini Kutti for everything makeup, beauty, and skincare-related. And her post on drugstore makeup was so insightful especially for newbies and for those who believe that expensive makeup is needed for a flawless look!

When I reached out to Shalini about this, she mentioned that there are a lot of misconceptions about makeup and some of the most common ones are people blaming their tools for their makeup. She also mentioned, "A lot of people think that they need to have a brush to have a flawless base or spend an xyz amount to get the products that will help them achieve a bomb makeup look. My whole page is proof that these misconceptions are just that - misconceptions! You can achieve a full glam look using just 4 drugstore products or even do a whole look without any brushes, I've made videos to prove both. Makeup is really just about technique, creativity, self-expression, and what you make of it."
