Summer is coming up and I have been prepping my make up bag. Here is what I need in the summer: a good retin-A cream to wear under tinted moisturizer (the two together are somehow a dream come true), a brow powder/gel kit to keep my mustache eyebrows groomed in place (plus a little pencil to fill in this one strange gap I seem to have made on my left eyebrow, what happened there?), an all-day eyeliner followed by a real good plumping mascara, and just the lightest swipe of a bronzer/blusher duo in a real good peachy color. Nothing else. Ya really gotta let your freckles and natural summer glow sing while ya can, is how I figure.
Last week I highlighted some of the best 24-hour budget eyeliners, but I have to say, in my experience nothing beats the Stila All Day Waterproof Liner. When it comes to the rest of the products though, there are some major heavy hitters in the drugstore department that do every bit as good a job as their more expensive counterparts. Where to save and where to splurge? That is entirely up to you.
