Who doesn't like to save a coin?
While shopping at our favorite beauty retailers we've definitely taken notice that there are now a plethora of makeup brands on the market today that make it easy for the average consumer to be beat on a budget. Brands such as Mophe, Juvia's Place, and Fenty Beauty have emerged as strong contenders on store shelves along side legendary high end brands such as MAC and Urban Decay.
Those brands provide high quality makeup at a price point that is practical for the everyday beauty. Paying around $20-$40 for a pigmented makeup palette not only keeps us loyal as customers but also allows us to save enough coins to splurge on a cute outfit to match our new look.
Our tried and true favorites are not only found on shelves in beauty retail stores such as Ulta and Sephora. These products can be found almost anywhere beauty products are sold as well as online. Take a look at our top 5 affordable makeup products from these brands that we cant live without.
# 1 LA Girl Pro Concealer
L.A.GIrl HD Pro Concealer
When it comes to budget friendly concealers, this product cant be beat in our book. This full coverage concealer comes in a large array of shades that are fit for just about every skin tone. They have also added additional shades for color correcting such as orange, green, yellow, white, and light purple.
When it comes to packaging, this tiny tube packs a lot of product for multiple uses. The tube also includes a brush on the end for easy application onto hard to reach areas of your face. The consistency of the concealer is thick yet easy to blend and move across your skin. Although we love our Shape Tape concealer by Tarte, the LA Girl Pro Concealer will always remain a staple in our kits.
# 2 Wet N Wild Eyeliner Pencils
Wet N Wild Eyeliner Pencils
Ok, we know that some of you might say "who still uses eyeliner pencils"? We're still showing our eyeliner pencils love. Using them to line our lids as well as for filling in our brows. Since we literally go through these like rain through a storm cloud, we love that we can stock up on more with Wet N Wild's affordable price tag.
These liners sharpen easily and will add a pigmented look on top of your lids. Our favorite is their dark brown shade "Simma Brown Now" for filling in our eyebrows. Use this shade to outline your brows while filling them in with your favorite tinted brow gel and you will thank us later. 😉
# 3 E.l.f. Antioxidant Booster Drops
E.L.F Antioxidant Booster Drops
Let's talk about hydration. A few drops is all you need of this product and you'll feel the difference in your skin. This is a serum that you can wear alone after washing your face or you can wear it under makeup. Although it is lightweight, the consistency can feel a bit sticky. When it does dry down, it leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Add this into your routine before applying makeup and it will give you a good base under your foundation.
#4 BH Cosmetics
We've been rocking with BH Cosmetics since the days of the 88 color palette. The range of shades and color payoff that this brand provides with their palettes is truly stunning. On days where we want that natural beat, we love to use our Ultimate Neutrals 42 Color Shadow Palette.
When we really want to add color to our look, the very pigmented Take Me To Brazil 35 Color Pressed Pigment Palette doesn't disappoint. With it's rich blues, purples and yellows, you are guaranteed to find a shade to match any outfit. The cost of this palette is only $20.00. With 42 shades....this is definitely a steal.
