Back-to-school season is right around the corner, and it’s time to set yourself up for success! Even though school supplies can get costly, it doesn’t mean you need to neglect your makeup at the prices below. Whether you’re heading back to school or not, these under-$20 products are must-have staples for any beauty routine.
A tinted moisturizer is a superhero product everyone needs in their makeup bag, especially for days where you need to look presentable but don’t feel like spending time getting ready. This one from ColourPop will leave your skin soft and hydrated thanks to ingredients like hyaluronic acid and coconut water. And, with an extensive shade range, almost everyone will be able to find their perfect match!
Clear brow gel is another makeup staple, as it can tame your eyebrows, slick down frizz or baby hairs, and even work as a mascara on those no-makeup makeup days. NYX’s Brow Glue creates the ultimate laminated brow look, keeping even the most unruly hairs in place without the crunchy texture. Its tiny bristles will allow you to cover every nook and cranny for a smooth finish.
Say goodbye to chapped, dull lips forever. This high-quality lip gloss from Essence gives off a wet glasslike finish to keep your lips hydrated whenever you need to apply. The flocked applicator allows for extra precision and contours to your lips with ease. This product is also cruelty-free, meaning you won’t find any potentially sensitizing ingredients. You’ll want to purchase every color!
Achieve a glowy, rejuvenated look with E.l.f’s putty bronzer, whose cream-to-powder formula offers a natural, sun-kissed matte finish. Great for all skin types, this bronzer is lightweight and breathable, and blends like a dream thanks to skin-nourishing ingredients like argan oil and vitamin E.
