I love to apply and wear makeup; however, I make sure to purchase budget friendly products. I especially love a high quality drugstore find! It can be difficult to find the best dupes for high end makeup, so I’ve compiled a list of my go-to daily makeup products. Each product is either a drugstore find or an affordable product that I purchased online. You can browse my top ten products below.

1. Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation
Milani’s Conceal + Perfect Foundation is a great choice if you need an affordable but high quality foundation. It provides minimal to full coverage, depending on your application. It goes on easily and stays put all day long. This foundation is a great drugstore find!
2. Mabelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
Mabelline’s Instant Age Rewind Concealer has incredible bang for its buck and is one of my favorite drugstore finds. It’s a great dupe for the much more expensive Tarte Shape Tape Concealer and does wonders for dark circles and tired eyes.
3. Mabelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder
Mabelline’s Fit Me Powder is known to be a great dupe for Laura Mercier’s Translucent Powder. It matches my skin tone perfectly and eliminates unwanted shine.
4. Milani Bronzer
5. Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter Palette
This product is a bit of a splurge compared to my other products. However, I wanted to include it, because I use it almost every time I wear makeup. Urban Decay’s Afterglow is my absolute favorite highlighter palette. I love the shades included and the pigmentation. It goes on easily and is long lasting.
6. Morphe Fall Into Frost Eyeshadow Palette
I’ve used a lot of eyeshadows, but Morphe’s palettes are my favorite. They are much more affordable than the popular Naked palettes, with much better application and pigmentation. Their Fall Into Frost palette is a go-to of mine. It has great neutral colors and beautiful shades of gold, green, and purple. It contains an incredible amount of high quality eye shadows.
7. Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Bling Boss Eyeshadow Palette
Morphe’s Bling Boss Palette is quite possibly my all-time favorite eyeshadow palette. I love using its rose gold and purple shades. It has a good mix of matte and glitter shadows that have long-lasting pigmentation.
8. e.l.f. Clear Brow and Lash Mascara
This product has been an absolute game changer. I somehow have cowlicks in my brows, so I desperately needed eyebrow gel. However, I don’t like to fill in or color my brows. e.l.f.’s clear brow gel was exactly what I needed! It holds everything in place without adding unwanted tint to my already dark brows. This product typically runs between $2-$3 per product.
9. L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara
L’Oreal’s Lash Paradise Mascara is my all-time favorite mascara. It’s a great dupe for Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara and has a large following. I love the length and separation it gives my lashes. It’s as close to fake lash appearance as I’ve seen a mascara get. This mascara is my top drugstore recommendation.
10. Twisted Kisses Lip Crayon “Kiss Me Twice”
Lastly, no face of makeup is complete without its lips. Twisted Kisses “Kiss Me Twice” is a twist-up lip crayon with a long-lasting, velvety color. I love this product’s matte appearance and this particular shade.
I’d love to hear from you! Let me know which products you try and love.
