Now that it is spring it's time to update my makeup palate. I can get nervous about trying new colors or products so drugstore brands are an affordable to experiment with new looks. Did you know that HEB has a full aisle filled with all of the drugstore makeup brands we know and love? In stores and online is how you can shop this, I have linked a lot of the items I used incase you want to try them yourself.

One stop shopping, huge selection online and in store, HEB has slowly become one of those stores I can walk around aimlessly on Sunday while I am grabbing my weekly grocery list. This is awesome, I tried out two drugstore looks that you can easily recreate. If you don't have an HEB by you, I feel sorry for you, AND you can order HEB Beauty from HEB.com. I created two looks below that are super easy to do yourself.

First up is a natural day look,  a fresh spring face.

After my typical tinted moisturizer and sunscreen routine I started by lining my waterline with NYX Eye and Eyebrow pencil in Taupe and used the same pencil from NYX in Brown for my brows. I applied Ardell Whispies in Black to give some pop to my eye. On my Lids I dusted the lighter gold tones on my eyes from the Revlon shadow palette. I didn't realize they were cream but they lasted a while on my lids!
*My trick for applying falsies is to cut half a centimeter from both ends so they can fit my eye and blend better. You can cut them into smaller pieces from there to apply them but cutting the ends is always manageable for me.
I lightly brushed my cheeks with NYX Blush in HDB10 Double Dare. It is very pigmented so when I say light, I mean LIGHT. I went over the top of my cheeks with NYX Liquid Illuminator to get a little glow.
Lips are Maybelline Matte Liquid. As a drugstore brand I am so obsessed with this liquid matte color's quality.  I need to come back to HEB to try all of the colors. This looks is incorporating NUDE THRILL. Its a great nude for my skintone.
To set it all since Houston is humid and hot, even in the spring, I used NYX Finishing Powder.

I put together a fun going out look as well! Nothing says spring better than a hot pink lip! You can take the natural look from Day to Night in 3 easy steps!

For a brighter look I swapped my lips for the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color. This color is 605-Obsession. This is another one that I would want to try every color in.
I lined my eyes with Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner to make them pop more and layered on a bit more of my NYX HD Blush in Double Dare. To ad even more volume to these lashes I layered in Milani Length in Seconds Lash Extension Fibers to create a more dramatic eye. This look I set with NYX Setting Spray.

Both looks are simple and a fun update for Spring! What makeup are you going to pick up the next time you go to HEB?
