Should You Use Drugstore Makeup?
Drugstore makeup products have their pros and cons. I personally prefer high-end brands especially for my bridal clients who need to have a long wearing makeup look.
However, for every day daily wear, drugstore makeup can be really amazing. Some of my personal drugstore makeup brands that I use myself are Maybelline, L’Oreal, Rimmel, Nyx and Max Factor.
