Welcome to my world!
Hi! Thanks for checking out my site! My name is Marina, former crownhead (aka local pageant queen), current sorority gal, and most importantly- a broke college student.
Let me tell you a little bit of what you can expect out of me and why:
The first time I began competing in pageants (and looooving makeup), some of the girls were posting pictures of all of their MAC makeup and here I was packing up my drugstore supply of CoverGirl. So, I thought to myself: “Did I really need to spend $38 on just my foundation to win the crown?” [Spoiler alert: the answer was no.]
Since my love for makeup continued to grow, I have gone on to create makeup looks for onstage competitions, pageant appearances, proms, weddings, going out with your girlfriends, staying in with your mom, going to class. For all these looks, I found out ways to get high end makeup (full sizes and samples) for such low costs in addition to trying out tons of AFFORDABLE brands that will give you that flawless pageant look or that effortless everyday face for such little $$$.
I mean, don’t we all love when
every once a blue moon our favorite makeup vlogger does one of their Drugstore Dupes videos?
Well now you can find Drugstore Dupes, right here, everyday, all the time, any time, for any budget.
Basically this college girl was tired having to decide between pizza and a new lip gloss (thanks @kyliejenner). Come back later this week and I’ll show you what I mean!
