A Dry Girl’s Guide to Winter: The Best Drugstore Products Guaranteed to Give You Dew

Primer: NYX Born to Glow It’s in the name guys! Out of all the dewy product claims on the drugstore market, this is the one that actually delivers. A spot on dupe for the MAC Strobe Cream, NYX’s Born to Glow is a hydrating primer with an opalescent white sheen. Underneath makeup, this primer truly help you shine!   Foundation: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup Dear Foundation Gods: Please forgive me for ever forgetting about this foundation. Back in high school when my skin was at it’s worst, I turned to the Neutrogena Healthy Skin to make my skin look… well, healthy.

However, years of coloring my hair hasn’t been too kind on me. I personally have quite dehydrated strands that simply love to break on me, and it’s length falls about 5 inches below my shoulders. Having always had relatively short hair, I’ve been working on growing out my hair for a while now, but haven’t been able to find products that would maintain the stress.
