In my short 18 years of life, I have never really gotten into makeup…until now. I constantly watch makeup videos on YouTube, follow MUAs on Twitter, and pin makeup looks on Pinterest. I save pictures of makeup products that MUAs swear their life upon, which are mostly the designer brand makeup that they’ve saved up for. Unfortunately, I am a broke college student, so my dreams of having my own collection of designer makeup is destroyed. Instead, I’ve learned to depend on Elf Cosmetics, NYX Cosmetics, and drugstore makeup. With the help of Pinterest, I’ve pulled together some makeup dupes that can easily replicate their designer counterparts. Happy saving!
