Do you need to spend a fortune on makeup? Not always. These beauty finds do an amazing job for less.
A few months ago, we shared makeup favorites from a friend in the industry. Subsequent to that, so many of you asked, “What about the drugstore brands? Are there any hidden budget gems?” Here, Malkie Knoefler shares her favs. -BCP
This is Maybelline Instant Age Rewind is the best all around concealer. It doesn’t crease and it works amazing for all.
This will change your life…in a foundation applicating way. If you haven’t used a brush or beauty blender to apply your makeup, you must get this face brush. It’s a game changer.
A makeup artist favorite for many years, this translucent powder sets makeup. Use a little to make your makeup go a long way. I use it to set under eye concealer too and buff it away with a fluffy shadow brush.
This Creamy Colour Lip Liner by Kiko Milano is my favorite lipliner of all time. It’s creamy, long wearing, and most of the time, if you ask me what color lipstick I’m wearing, it’s usually one of these lipliners, colored into my entire lip. For only $8, you can get a few. Though it’s not drugstore, it’s definitely drugstore price and one of my beauty secrets.
No need to spend $25 on shadow primer. This Wet n’ Wild Focus Eyeshadow Primer works so amazing, it’s not normal! It’s less than $6 and works better than my expensive ones. This gets 10 stars from me for longevity, quality, and wearability.
