12 Affordable Beauty Products for Beginners

If you’re one of those girly girls who worships BeautyCon and YouTubers but has never tried to do her own makeup, you might be at the point where you’re ready to try.

With all the choices available out there, it can be so stressful trying to find the right products that everyone recommends and that comes out. But it doesn’t matter that you’re buying all high end products that celebrity makeup artists use. It’s actually smarter to practice with low to medium end brands while having a few staple high end products.

So if you need help finding affordable beauty products, check out our list below.

1. L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation, $13

This drug store foundation will give you an amazing glow.

2. Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation, $8

This also comes in dewy and smooth dewy, which is a perfect drugstore foundation that has a great formula and great range in shades.

3. NYX Cosmetics Blush, $10

This has six bomb ass shades that will match all skin tones for only $10.

4. NYX Cream Highlight Contour Palette, $15

This is a great palette for contouring that comes in light, medium & dark.

5. BH Cosmetics Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette, $15

This is a great beginners palette with 14 shades that you can use for eyeshadow and for highlighting.

6. Makeup Revolution Radiance Palette, $15

These three beautiful shimmering shades ranging from light to deep and can fit any skintone. 

7. Morphe Brushes

Brushes can feel like a big expense but these are PERFECT for beginners. They have a great quality and are definitely worth the price at $50 for a set of 12.

8. NYX Cosmetics Matte Finish Setting Spray, $8

This is a great dupe for a higher quality Urban Decay or Kat Von D spray and it’ll keep your makeup in place for hours.

9. NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner, $7

You seriously don’t need a $20 eyeliner if you are still practicing your technique. Until you can nail the perfect winged liner this will work just fine.

Double tap if this gives you all the #organizing feels. ❤️ (@hadas_sher) #knolling #realtechniquesbrush

10. Real Techniques Sponges, $7 to $10

No matter the price, these are my absolute favorite makeup sponges. They have a great quality, last a long time and you can get an individual one or two in a pack.

11. NYX Cosmetics Buttergloss, $5

Comes in over 20 shades and is a great cheap gloss that is super pigmented.

12. Real Techniques Brush Cleaning Palette, $15

Makeup doesn’t end with application — you also need to keep your stuff hygienic after use. This is a cute little brush cleaner that is easy to use and saves you a lot of time of doing the most dreadful thing, cleaning your brushes one by one.
