Don’t you love the makeup counters at the mall, but hate the prices? Just because something doesn’t come from a department store does not mean that it is bad quality. Large companies such as Maybelline, CoverGirl, and Revlon can command better prices from their manufacturers because there is always such a high demand for their products. Don’t be misled that all cheaper products are better than the name brands, this is simply not the case. I did a little research at the drug store to help save you a little cash this summer and found the best makeup with the best prices.
 
 
Primer
L’Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base ($12)
This great product smooths lines, hides pores and banishes many imperfections. It’s silky, lightweight, and ideal to start your makeup routine with. 
Concealer
L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Line-Minimizing & Tone-Enhancing Concealer SPF 20 ($12)
This is a lightweight concealer that gives maximum coverage. Also, the built-in brush makes for easy application.
 
 

 
Foundation
L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17 ($11)
It is so hard to find a perfect color to match your skintone, but this product alleviates this concern. This liquid foundation has an unbelievably extensive selection of colors and every one will be able to find their match. 
 Powder

I love this powder for the sleek finish it gives to any look. This powder is so light that it completely blends all my makeup to look effortlessly flawless. 

Bronzer
Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Bronzers ($15)
This bronzer is used by celebrities all over the country and I can see why. It is not too orange and contains SPF, antioxidants, and brightening ingredients. Anna Kournikova swears by this product and refuses to wear anything else!

Blush
L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Blush ($11)
This blush is extremely true to a natural flush and gives you a glowing effect that simply cannot be beat.

Eye Color

These colors effortlessly slide right on and last all day. I also like the selection of the colors and how you can choose a shade for any outfit.

This eyeliner is the best. It is super long-lasting and requires no touch-ups. The perfect element to that super-sexy smokey eye look.

Mascara
Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara ($6)
Kim Kardashian swears by this mascara and swears it completes the look of her famous smokey eyes. Kate Beckinsale and Ciara are also in-love with this fabulous product. Try this product with the big brush to make your lashes as defined as possible.
Lips
Smith’s Rosebud Salve ($7)
This product is totally portable and instantly makes your lips silky smooth and soft. The little metal pot is adorable and is a favorite of Katherine Heigl and Eva Longoria.
