6 Makeup Finds on a Budget

Every beauty enthusiast loves a good makeup find, but they’re not always cheap. If you’re on the market for some beauty products that won’t break the bank, then look no further.

1. Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Black Drama Washable Mascara

I’m obsessed with making my lashes look as long as possible. They’re naturally short and stumpy, and I use everything to make them be and look longer. I use a serum every night that makes the length of my lashes longer, but this is definitely the best mascara I’ve ever used. Not only does it lengthen lashes while adding volume and totally transforming your lashes from bare to bombshell – but also it’s only $5.94 at Walmart!

2. Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner

If you want a pout like Kylie Jenner without getting injections, this lip liner is the one for you. I found this amazing product by Instagram and blog-stalking New York blogger, Boho Chicken, a.k.a Alexia Ioannou. She recommended color 130, “Dusty Rose”; you know, like Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo’s daughter, Dusty Rose? It’s a great neutral color and goes on as smooth as butter. It can also be found at Walmart for $6.94.

3. E.L.F Highlighter

If you want to glow like a firefly, you need this highlighter. I found this product on a meme - yes, a meme. It has great pigment and is the best way to make yourself shine bright like a diamond. It can be found at Target for only $2.99.
 

4. BH Cosmetics Eye Shadow Palettes

BH Cosmetics has so many affordably priced items and their eye shadow palettes are to die for. I first discovered BH Cosmetics at Urban Outfitters and immediately fell in love. Their palettes have anywhere from 28-120 colors. They’re sold in stores like U.O. and Tilly’s, and can be found online for only $14.99 at bhcosmetics.com.

5. BH Cosmetics Brushes

BH Cosmetics also has amazing brush sets that come with so many different brush shapes and sizes. They’re so sturdy and easy to clean, and I’ve used their brushes with liquid foundation, cream contour, and so many different powders. They work so well with so many different products and last for so long. I got my first brush set from Urban Outfitters, but you can also find it online for only $19.99 at bhcosmetics.com. Best of all, they’re cruelty-free!

6. Literally anything from T.J.Maxx

Finally, where about 97% of my wardrobe has come from: TJ Maxx. This place sometimes has expensive makeup products for a fraction of the price. Something that I always make sure of before buying it: look at the product to see if it was touched or used by someone else! Sometimes, people will open up the products and test them out just to put it right back on the shelf. Before I buy any facial/body products or makeup from T.J.Maxx, I always make sure that I’m = the first one that’s used it. With that being said, they usually have a great selection of makeup. I’ve gotten Bare Minerals eyeliner, Anastasia Beverly Hills contour palettes, Lorac mascara and so many other great products from there for great prices!
