Drugstore Foundation Routine ♥️ • | mollysbeautylife

I'm back again and this time it's with my favourite Drugstore foundation, concealer , powder & Bronzer routine!

If you're anything like me, always on the look out for the next best drugstore foundation & concealer and for a good price, you're in the right place! 
As i'm a close relative of Casper the ghost, it's sooo hard to find a suitable foundation to cover my skin without it looking orange! There are only very few products from the drugstore which work well for me, i'll go into detail about them below :)


FAVOURITE Foundation: 

(Shocker) Loreal true match - i'm not sure what shade I am, however looking at the bottles i'm sure i'm 2nd from the palest. (I really should've got the palest one)! I think it retails at around £9.99 in most stores such as Boots and Superdrug.

  • It's a liquid foundation with a medium to full coverage. 
  • Lots of great shades from Neutral to cool and warm undertones.
  • For the best coverage, I apply it using a damp beauty sponge. It makes it 10x easier and quicker too!
  • I have quite dry skin so I absolutely  need to moisturise before applying this.

It absolutely has to be the Collection Concealer in the shade Fair. What can I say?! The best drugstore concealer i've ever used. It actually suits my skin tone!  If you haven't tried this, you're missing out! It's a must buy for the price at £4.19 (depending on drugstore).

  •  It super super full coverage, liquid texture and stays on your face all day.
  • I've repurchased it 3 times which speaks for itself!
  • A well known dupe for NARS Creamy Concealer
  • I apply it under my eyes & bring it down the sides of my nose in a triangle shape, also on my tear duct for brightening the eyes.
  • I blend in the concealer with small round fluffy brush , easier for all the nooks and crannies. 

My Drugstore Before & After ♥️



As I've got dry skin, I usually opt for a cream bronzer as it's much easier to blend when I'm in a rush in the morning! My all time favourite is Bourjois' Cream bronzer, or it's proper name 'Bourjois Une Healthy Sun BB Cream Bronzer'. 
I got this on a whim quite a while ago, but i've been loving it ever since! It's on www.FragranceDirect.co.uk at the moment for £3.49, down from £12.49, bargain!
  • I apply it with a small stippling brush onto the top of my forehead, underneath my cheekbones & a little bit on my nose to warm up my skin. One of my favourite brushes for this is the Real Techniques Stippling Brush.
  • To set the cream bronzer I usually top it with Sleek's Contour Kit in Medium for extra dimension.

Last but not least, powder. Even though I have dry skin, it tends to get quite oily in my T-zone area as the day goes on. To combat this, I use my all time drugstore and high end favourite powder, the Rimmel Stay Matte in the shade Transparent.
