If you know me, you know that I am constantly checking out Walgreens’ beauty aisles for deals. It’s one of the only places I shop for my drugstore beauty needs because they tend to have the best deals and coupons that I can find! And you bet your sweet britches, when Revlon goes 40% off I stock up on my Colorstay foundation.

For this post, my mission was to pick up the Walgreens Holiday Guide in store, shop, and create a beauty look inspired by the holiday guide. One thing I will say is that I always pick up the monthly coupon book when I arrive to Walgreens to see what kinds of coupons I can score. I always ending up finding pretty great stuff.

It was awesome to see that Walgreens put out a Holiday Guide with a ton of coupons at the back of it. This guide provided a lot of inspiration to create my look! Just take a look for yourself at the super fun pages with great ideas. Here are a few pages that I drew inspiration for my look from, along with the coupons I redeemed!

Immediately I was drawn to the Wet ‘n Wild eyeshadows. I own almost all of the eye palettes, and I seriously think they are some of the best drugstore eyeshadows I’ve ever tried. The ‘Walking on Eggshells’ trio is simply amazing and I probably would be okay using it every single day for the rest of my life – that’s how much I love it. Since my mission was to create a holiday look, the new Fergie palettes looked like a lot of fun. I decided on this super gold/taupe smoky palette and thought it would be great to create a look focused around the eye.

The products I chose for this look:

Products Used for Tutorial Inspired by the Walgreens Holiday Guide #HappyAllTheWay #shop #cbias 1. Kiss Lashes KPL05: The perfect way to complete the eye look and take it to super glam level. These are a little thick and holiday ready.
2. L’Oreal Lash Out Butterfly Mascara: Something I’ve wanted to try
3. Wet ‘n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection Palette in Metropolitan Nights: The perfect holiday sparkly palette and the focus of this look.
4. L’Oreal Visible Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift: I was drawn to this rose gold color and thought it would be a great way to emphasize my complexion without overdoing it. It’s a cream-to-powder formula which is really easy to use and forgiving.
5. Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Stargazer: Instead of a muted nude lip, I thought this sparkly gold nude would kick this look up a notch. Remember, if you are doing a smoky eye, be sure to keep it simple on the lips.

Now let’s get to the good part! I hope you enjoy. I tried to make the tutorial really quick and easy! If you have any questions, be sure to leave them in the comments!

  9. I love the smoky eye tutorial. And I’m glad I can get all the makeup at Walgreens. I rarely buy anything other than drugstore makeup. I don’t know how to use it well enough to warrant spending more money!

  10. I’ve never been very good at getting the smokey eye look down, or any eye look for that matter, ha ha ha! I have hooded lids so I just don’t know what to do with them!

  13. I really need to pay attention to Walgreens coupons – I didn’t realize they offered so many!

    And have you always been good at hair/makeup? I was wondering that the other day. I am AWFUL at both but wonder if it’s a talent, or can come with practice:)
