Best Budget Makeup

You don't need to spend a ton to find great makeup.
Tap through to discover 5 makeup products under $5 that perform just as well as high end!
Wet n Wild Color Icon 5-Pan Palettes
For just $2.99, these are the best eyeshadows at the drugstore! They're super pigmented, easy to blend and stay vibrant all day. Above I've swatched the palettes Sundaze & Walking on Eggshells.
Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder
Apply softly for a subtle glow, or build it up for an out-of-this-world beam! This $4.99 highlighter is soft and easy to blend. The shade I'm applying here is Golden Flower Crown.
AOA Studio Perfect Setting Powder
This $1 setting powder is extremely fine, and dusts over your face in an even layer to blur pores and set your makeup for longer wear. It performs just as well-- if not better-- than high end powders!
Essence This is Nude Lipstick
If you love neutrals, you'll love this lipstick line. Only $3.99, it gives full coverage color in one swipe that lasts comfortably with a semi-matte finish. The shade swatched above is Crazy.
Essence Lash Princess Mascara
Often called the best drugstore mascara, this $4.99 tube does wonders for short lashes! You get a ton of length, lift, and separation for a fanned out, full look.
