The best makeup for under $5? Hell yes!! These are just some of my favorite things. And if you’re in the market for some affordable makeup then stick around!

Essence Sun Club //  Matt Bronzing Powder – For a sun-kissed, natural complexion! The Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder conjures up an irresistible natural-looking tan and has a great mattifying effect at the same time!
NYX Concealer Stick  //  Concealer Stick – Conditioning ingredients ensure the formula blends easily with fingertips, brush or sponge, and appears natural. NYX Cosmetic’s non-comedogenic cover-up creates medium to heavy coverage. Use the lavender for sallow skin, the green to neutralize redness, and the yellow for under-eye circles.
NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator  //  Capture that sexy glow with our lightweight, multi-functional illuminator. Use as a foundation base or over cheekbones, décolletage, or cupids bow for that refreshing luminosity that’ll have everyone talking.
NYX Dark Circle Concealer  //  Dark Circle Concealer – A serious solution for one of beauty’s most challenging problems! No fancy names, just a product that can be counted on to do the job. The NYX product glides on without looking thick or obvious. Coconut oil provides intensive moisture and ensures no caking. The subtle hint of orange counteracts the appearance of dark circles, while natural skin toned pigments work in unison to provide the ultimate coverage.
I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara  //  I Love Extreme Mascara’s “crazy” sister – with even more volume! The deep-black, creamy texture covers each individual lash with color and the extra-large plastic brush provides sensational volume.
NYX Blush  //  I always obsess over these cute little blush compacts from NYX.
Shadow Softies by Intense i-Color //  Almay Shadow Softies by Intense i-Color are color whipped to perfection. Lightweight, crease-free, pure color is available in 12 shades: 6 matte and 6 metallic.
Wet N Wild CoverAll Cream Foundation  //  Visibright Complex Reduces The Appearance Of Wrinkles And Rejuvenates Skin. Provides All Day Wear, Medium-To-Full Coverage, And Lightweight, Satin-Matte Finish.
Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Tint  //  Perfect for any occasion: the blush blends instantly and seamlessly to create a long lasting, natural-looking flush of colour that lasts up to 24 hours. Ultra lightweight, won’t feel heavy. Lasts all day.
ELF Mineral Infused Primer  //  Transform your face into a flawless and smooth canvas with the Mineral Infused Face Primer. Developed to combat against excess oil, flaky dryness, enlarged pores and fine lines. This clear multipurpose skin primer will prepare your skin so makeup goes on evenly for a long lasting satin finish.
ELF Blush & Bronzer Powder Duo  //  I have been using these for years. They are the best and rival their high end counterparts. The blush and bronzer powders are amazing. Check out some elf blush and bronzer swatches.
nügg Revitalizing Face Mask  //  Obviously I had to throw in a little bonus product because it’s one of my faves. This face mask is amazing. We’ve chatted about it before here and I think you would love them as much as me.

  • For cheap makeup I really think Wet & Wild does it best; super cheap yet high quality and pigmented. Sadly some drugstore brands like Loreal and Revlon are getting very pricey
