How to Add Drama to Your Daily Beauty Look

5 Different Ways You Can Bring the Beauty Drama Daily

It's time for your Spring beauty fix! We've teamed up with Walgreens to bring you the latest product recommendations and makeup inspiration you've been craving.

If you’ve got a flair for the beauty dramatics and are looking for even more ways to amp up your look, we've got the inside scoop! Whether it’s new products that will get that cat eye even more on fleek or a bold new lip product that will help you slay all day, we asked a Walgreens beauty consultant for product recommendations to help get you the how-tos you never knew you were missing. Read on to see the different ways we recommend you gear up this Spring for a dramatic look that's still all your own.


Flawless Skin

Clear skin = big impact! This look may be more subtle and understated than some of the other dramatic trends you want to try, but when your skin tone is even and your highlight is on point, it can make a huge statement, and you can achieve this flawless finish in only two steps. First, the Walgreens beauty consultant recommended using a concealer on the high points of your face — not just hide imperfections, but to add a gentle highlight. CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Concealer was her choice for the perfect amount of coverage that still leaves your skin with a luminous finish. Next, try a touch-up stick to instantly hide any imperfections, oily zones, or enlarged pores. She recommended blotting the Milani Blur Stick on trouble areas in the morning or throughout the day.

At-Home Nail Art

Nope, you don't have to go to the salon to create a salon-worthy look. Creating a nail art look on your own is actually super simple and easy if you pick a design you know you can master and a nail polish you know you can depend upon. The Walgreens beauty consultant recommended stocking up on Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish for at-home nail DIYs. It lasts as long as normal gel, doesn't require a UV light to cure it, and can be removed with normal nail polish remover — sold!


Two-Toned Lips

So you've already figured out nail art, but what about lip art? Your lips are a canvas just waiting to be painted! The limited-edition Revlon Lip Powder is a great way to bring a high-impact but wearable look to life. The beauty consultant recommended wearing it over your go-to lipstick to add a emphasis to your look without going overboard. Try concentrating the powder in the center of your pout for a slight ombré effect.

Lashes For Days

Your wink is about to get a bold and voluminous upgrade when you try the L'Oreal Paris Volumious X Fiber Waterproof Mascara. The Walgreens beauty consultant suggested this two-in-one mascara for anyone looking for added oomph without the hassle. This dual-ended mascara has one end to work as a primer for fluffing and boosting while the other end contains fibers for lengthening and adding curl.


Graphic Liner

All it takes is one product to create this OTT look. The Maybelline Lasting Drama Light Eyeliner was recommended for its no-smudge formula and eye-brightening qualities, but it's the self-sharpening tip that really makes this a beauty junkie's dream liner. It goes on so smoothly and precisely so you can get as creative as you'd like with your eyeliner look. Whether it's a simple cat eye or a full-on runway-inspired re-creation, you can go for it without worrying about smudges or mistakes.
