3. Revlon Cream Blush
Blush is one of those products that I’ve personally never felt compelled to spend a lot of money on. There are so many brands that carry some high quality blushes, it’s really not necessary look elsewhere. Turns out Olivia Munn agrees and likes to use Revlon Cream Blush to get her glow on. Cream blush is especially great for girls who have drier skin types or aging skin. Pick up this blusher to give your cheeks a dewy look for under $1.

This mascara is a cult favorite and it has so many celeb fans including singer Kelly Rowland and reality star Kim Kardashian to name a few. This mascara adds volume, definition, and length without any flaking or clumping. If you have thin or barely there lashes this is definitely worth a try especially at its low price point!

5. NYC New York Color Liquid Eyeliner
There are so many types of liquid eyeliner that it can be hard to choose just one. Don’t worry, we’re going to make it easy for you! NYC’s liquid liner is super affordable yet easy to use and has lots of staying power. I first learned about this liner from YouTube star Chrisspy who swears by it and singer Adrienne Bailon seems to agree. Try it for yourself!

6. Maybelline New York the Nudes Palette
Good eye shadow palettes are hard to come by, especially when you’re hunting for them at the drugstore. I usually find there’s little color payoff, the formula is super chalky, or it just doesn’t last. Not so with Maybelline’s The Nudes Palette. Take a cue from actress Laverne Cox, who does her own makeup, she uses this palette and loves it.
Available at amazon.com for $11.89
7. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
This reasonably priced facial cleanser is another common celeb favorite. What’s great about this cleanser is that it’s super gentle, works great for all skin types, and cleanses your skin without drying it out. Gina Rodriguez is a big fan and Jamie Chung likes the brand’s moisturizer. If you have sensitive skin and haven’t had much luck with other face washes, take a chance on this one.
