Welcome back to Haley’s Beauty Room! So I recently ran a poll on my Twitter and Instagram trying to figure out which post you guys would like to read next and here we are! A ton of people were super interested in seeing what my Best Makeup Products Under $10 were. Don’t worry if you voted for Drugstore Faves, that will be coming soon ;).
I tried to go through every step of a makeup routine and call out products in each category. Obviously all of these products are $10 and under. Plus, they are all super great and I use most them on a daily basis. So, if you’re interested in reading what the best makeup products are for under ten bucks, then keep on reading!
If you suffer from texture, fine lines, pores, basically anything that needs to be filled in, this primer is amazing. This product is actually marketed for the eye area, but it works great all over the face. If you aren’t a fan of using this all over, they do have a matching Prime And Fine Smoothing Primer base, which can be purchased here.
This product is $6.99 and can be purchased through the link above.
For my oily skin gals, you will love this primer. This formula will keep you matte all day long, plus it smooths out unruly texture. It will also lock your foundation in to place!
This primer can purchased through the link above and is also just $6.99.
If you like a foundation that provides great coverage and will last all day, the Milani Conceal + Perfect is right for you. This will cover everything on your face and stay all day long with its water-resistant formula.
Just under ten bucks at $9.99 and can be purchased through the link.
A dry skin type’s dream foundation. The MegaCushion from Wet N Wild is hydrating and provides great coverage. Check out my recent post on this item and the contour cushion for more details!
I just recently raved about this concealer in a post. To me, this concealer is better than Tarte’s Shape Tape and is a fraction of the cost. Check out this post for more details!
A concealer that you will soon be able to buy at Ulta and Sephora comes from Colourpop Cosmetics. This lightweight, creamy concealer is formulated with soft blurring pigments to give you a creaseproof, matte finish.
It’s a holy grail of mine and it is only $6.00.
Another fabulous product from Colourpop is their ultra precise Brow Boss Pencil. The formula on this is creamy enough to get good color payoff, but is stiff enough to get precise strokes.
This is the only brow pencial I use and it’s a whopping $5.00.
Set those brows in place with the Essence Make Me Brow eyebrow gel mascara. This is a tinted brown gel to give your brows some more color and make them appear fuller.
This brow gel is great for those on the go that just want to set their brows, but don’t have time to do anything else. Plus, for $2.99, can you really go wrong?
There is absolutely no questions in my mind that the best eyeshadows under $10 come from Colourpop. I have ordered the single pressed shadows time and time again, eventually filling up a Z palette, and I use those more than any high end shadows I own.
They are pigmented, blend well, creamy, and come in a multitude of colors. They are $4.00 each and Colourpop frequently has a sale in which you buy four shadows and get a free palette to put them in.
If you would like a complete palette, Makeup Revolution is the route to go! Their Reloaded Palettes come in four different color schemes with the perfect combination of mattes and shimmers.
Best part about these, the palettes are only SEVEN Dollars! That’s right, $7 for 15 shades.
The best mascara at the drugstore and honestly could be the best mascara ever. This product from Essence is no joke. You literally look like you are wearing falsies after applying just one coat.
The length is great, the volume is great, the rich color is great, and it stays puts all day long. No smudging at all. Save some cash and pick up this $4.99 mascara.
Runner up to the Essence mascara, but not by much, is the Volume + Length by Kokie. This rich, black color provides the volume and length that anyone can benefit from. It is smudge-proof and buildable to get the effect you desire.
A product to set the face and bake under the eyes. Plus, it gives a sheer tint to add just the right amount of color that your complexion needs. This mineral formula helps to control shine and smooth out any unwanted texture. Your makeup will also be locked in place all day.
Try this out for just $7.99.
This has been around since the 1930’s and for good reason! This translucent powder is great for baking under the eyes and gives a flawless finish. The texture is velvety and super finely milled.
$5.99 for a big container that will last a lifetime!
The smoothest, most buttery, pigmented bronzer that you will find for just $10 is in this duo from Makeup Revolution. This actually has a highlighter in it as well, which is totally stunning. The bronzer in this is what gets me.
It’s great for a ton of different skin tones and isn’t an orange-based bronzer, so don’t worry about looking like a Cheeto! The color is perfectly cool-toned and doubles great as a contour color.
Another duo that is great for highlighting and contour is from Wet N Wild. This palette contains a great shade for contouring and a matte shade for highlighting the face. The powders are pigmented, buttery, and blend like a dream.
For $4.99 who would say no?
Another one I have raved about are the Milani Baked blushes. Some of the most stunning blush colors you will ever see. Plus, they all look so amazing on this skin. My favorites are Luminoso and Bella Bellini (which is a straight up dupe for NARS Orgasm Blush), but there are a multitude of shades to choose from.
Get these blushes for just $8.00.
If you are looking for a matte blush instead of a shimmer or stain, the Flower Beauty Petals Pots Blushes are where you should head. They are smooth and silky, while providing a healthy flush of color to the skin.
These are exactly $10, but are definitely worth it!
My favorite highlight from the drugstore has to be the Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts Highlighter. If you are a fan of blinding highlights, you absolutely need this. One dip in the powder and you will glow to the gods.
The powder is smooth, blends easily, and doesn’t emphasize texture. This highlighter is normally $7.00, but is currently on sale for $3.50!
Would you rather use a liquid highlighter that you can mix in to your foundation for an all over glow? Definitely pick the Aura Glow Highlighters from J. Cat Beauty.
These Argan Oil infused liquid highlighters will give you a fabulous glow without using any chunky glitter or unflattering colors. I use this as base before putting on my foundation everyday and the highlight peeks through just enough!
$8.99 for highlighting AND bronzing shades!
If you’re looking for a matte lip color that will stay in place all day long, you need to try out these liquid lips from Flower Beauty. The colors are stunning, the formula is long wearing, but not drying, and the formula has blurring effects. Your lips will appear softer and smoother.
Pick these up for $9.00 each.
If you prefer a lipstick formula with a little more shine and creaminess, go for the Catrice Ultimate Colour Lipsticks. This long wearing formula is highly pigmented and has color that lasts for hours.
There is really only one brand that nails it for setting sprays under $10. Pick up the Make It Last option for all day makeup wear or the Make It Dewy if you need some extra glow and hydration.
$9.99 each or currently buy 1 get 1 40% off at Ulta!
