The beauty industry is blowing up with products and trends that we can only attempt to keep up with. I took to the aisles of Target to recreate my daily routine to see what products are worth the buy for those beauties who want the glow up without making your bank blow up.

Elf Poreless Putty Primer 

The first thing everyone should have is a solid primer. The E.L.F Putty Primer has always been on my list to pick up so that was the first thing I searched for. It’s weightless, effective, long-lasting, and it’s only $8!!

L’Oreal Paris True Match

Next in my routine is a foundation, I tried the L’Oreal Paris’s True Match foundation. It’s smooth, buildable, and has SPF 17! I bought the Ivory Beige C 2.5 and it matched my skin even better than some brands at Sephora that I’ve tried.

NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Concealer

Now that I’ve learned how to contour, I can’t go without concealer. The NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop concealer has just the right amount of coverage and can blend easily into any foundation.

Maybelline City Bronzer

You can’t have a good makeup day without a good bronzer, and this is a good bronzer. It only comes in three shades, but this product glides on smoothly and gives you that beautiful contoured look.

Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder

It wouldn’t be a glow up without the highlight! I picked up the Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in Dayglow, and my look was instantly elevated. You could easily get away with applying this product with your fingers or with your favorite highlight brush.

NYX Ultimate palette

The NYX Ultimate palette in Smoky and Highlight is the perfect size to travel with and has a broad range of neutrals and bolds for any look you’re going for.

Maybelline Pumped Up! Colossal Volume Express

For final touches, I always use Maybelline Pumped Up! Colossal Volum Express mascara. For any type of look, bold or natural, I always have polished lashes with this product.


This is just a handful of products that stand out at Target. If you’re someone just starting to dabble in cosmetics, or someone that needs a quick restock before heading to Sephora or Ulta, these products will instantly amplify any look you are going for. 

So what’s your favorite Target beauty buy??
