We all have loved the makeup tutorials that keep popping up on our Instagram and YouTube feeds. As much as we would like to try those makeup looks ourselves, the videos are created by professional makeup artists and the products that they have are usually of high-end brands. These high-end brands have exceptional quality but are usually not affordable to everyone. Brands like Bobbi Brown, Estée Lauder, Dior, Anastasia, Smashbox and more are now available in India are extremely costly and not everyone can afford them.
The drugstore brands that are available in the country are easily accessible and affordable too. Some of the drugstore brands we love are Maybelline, L’Oréal, Revlon, Wet n’ Wild and even homegrown brands like Sugar, Nykaa, Lakme, Lotus, etc. Our love for these brands and makeup has led us to dive in deeper and find products in drugstore brands that are dupes of the high-end products. It is simply not enough to have the product to create stunning makeup looks, you also need to have the right techniques. The makeup artistry courses offered at Hamstech are just the place for you to learn and polish your skills. We cannot wait to share our findings with you.
Maybelline Age-Rewind Concealer
A concealer is our best friend and helps us deal with dark circles, pigmentation and spots on our face. A good concealer will help you in covering-up all your skin pigmentations and spots. This is the perfect dupe for the Shape-Tape concealer by Tarte which every beauty guru swears upon.
L’Oréal Infallible Pro Foundation
A good foundation should be able to provide medium to high coverage and is necessary to cover-up the flaws in your skin that you wish to hide. The right foundation will help make your skin look flawless and needs to be suitable for your skin type. The NARS foundation(1) leaves you with a natural look and has a medium to high coverage formula that is very light on the skin. The L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro Foundation is the perfect drugstore substitute and works just as well as the NARS foundation while providing excellent coverage at a quarter of the price.
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
A bronzer is perfect for those lazy days when you don’t want to spend your time contouring. It is much more flexible and will give you a stunning look. The most popular bronzer in the world is the Hoola bronzer by Benefit. Even though it is loved so much, it is costly and also not cruelty-free. The perfect dupe for this is the Murumuru Butter Bronzer by Physicians Formula. This is very buttery as the name suggests and leaves you with the perfect look.

Wet n’ Wild MegaLast Lip Colour
Lipstick is one of our favourite makeup products when it comes to makeup. The gorgeous shade that someone is wearing leaves us longing for that exact shade to be a part of our collection. The most popular lipsticks are by MAC. The stunning shade, Ruby Woo is everyone’s favourite and we have found the perfect dupe for it. The Wet n’ Wild MegaLast Lip Colour is the perfect drugstore substitute for MAC’s lipsticks. The formulation of these lipsticks is a pretty close substitute for the MAC lipsticks and comes in a variety of shades too.
