Cruelty-Free Drugstore Foundation Routine

Cruelty-Free Drugstore Foundation Routine

I’m sharing my cruelty-free drugstore foundation routine featuring Milani, Nyx and the Ordinary. It’s perfect for my pale skin. I have dry skin issues, so I’m glad that I figured out this combination for my skin type. It works for me in hot humid climates and hot dry climates, lasting 14 or more hours. As I’m not someone who likes full coverage foundation, I would say this is more light or light-medium coverage. I never expected that the best foundation routine for me would be with drugstore products! I love my cruelty-free drugstore foundation routine.

While not technically drugstore, the Ordinary primer and foundation are the most affordable foundation options I’ve found in the past several years. It’s hard to beat my cruelty-free makeup routine, which comes in at just under $35.

Total price for the primer, foundation, setting powder and setting spray is $34.60. If you add in the optional white foundation mixer the total is $44.59. Not bad at all!

I hope you enjoy my cruelty-free drugstore foundation routine and give it a try yourself! I’ve been doing this same routine for well over a month and have no plans of stopping it!

  • Is the ordinary sold in drugstores? Cool! Which ones? I’d love to pick up some of their skincare!!!

    • I’m told they’re sold in drugstores in Canada. None in the USA yet, as far as I’m aware. However, they are ‘drugstore’ pricing.
