Under-$20 Makeup The Pros Actually Swear By

The gap between mass and prestige beauty products has never been so small. In fact, it seems that nearly every day a top celebrity makeup artist reveals a few more tried-and-true bargain buys, from Kerry Washington's go-to artist to the man behind some of Kim Kardashian's signature looks. (Fret not, they're all ahead.)
It makes sense. Hit up your local drugstore and you'll find long-wear matte lipstick, highlighters with subtle shimmer, and brow colors that actually look natural — which was relatively unheard of just a few years ago.

If you read R29's beauty section regularly, you know we're committed to reporting on the best of the best at the drugstore, because although there are wonderful products to find at your local CVS or Walgreens, there are still a lot of subpar ones hanging out in the aisle alongside them. Translation: You can get really good stuff, but you still need to know what you're looking for.
Don't worry, because we've tapped the top Hollywood red carpet makeup artists for the affordable products that have passed their (very discerning) tests. Ahead, we've rounded up these pro recommendations into one massive, insanely useful slideshow that highlights everything you could ever need, all available in the cosmetic aisle of your local drugstore. Let the one-stop shopping commence!

The Expert: Makeup artist Daniel Chinchilla
Clients: Ariana Grande

We're not surprised that this is a pro favorite — these wipes are the holy grail of makeup removers. Grande's makeup man tells InStyle that these wipes are "super-moisturizing" and can remove traces of just about anything.

The Expert: Makeup artist Allan Avendaño
Clients: Shay Mitchell, Zendaya

"My client, Sarah Hyland, introduced me to this lip tint! One day she said she didn't need lipstick and she was just going to use Maybelline Baby Lips. After trying it on her, I’ve been obsessed ever since. The color she chose for that day was Peach Kiss. It's a beautiful neutral color that's not heavy and perfect for the summer," Avendaño told Teen Vogue.

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm, $2.99, available at Target.

The Expert: Makeup artist Sir John
Clients: Beyoncé, Karlie Kloss, Chrissy Teigen

Sir John described this lip color as "...a slight nod to the '90s, but it's very present in terms of the mauve, cool, gray undertones." Sounds just like that essential brown hue we've been searching for.

The Expert: Makeup artist Fiona Stiles
Clients: Jennifer Garner, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Faris

"I love, love, love this contour,” Stiles says. “It's really sheer, unlike 90% of the contour powders on the market, so it's hard to get wrong. Use a light hand and a soft brush, and you'll be shocked at the cheekbones you can sculpt!”

Nyx Contour Pro Singles in Tan, $5, available at Nyx Cosmetics.

“This is a great product to use under the eyes, on the bridge of the nose, and along the tops of the cheekbones to add a really soft, pretty light to the face without screaming highlighter,” Stiles says. “I use a little here and there to add brightness to the face.”

L'Oréal Studio Secrets Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer, $12.99, available at Ulta Beauty.

The Expert: Makeup artist Carola Gonzalez
Clients: Kerry Washington, Rashida Jones, Jaime King

“This is one of my top beauty secrets,” Gonzalez tells us. “It’s actually a balm for cracked nipples, but I use it on my clients’ chapped, dry, dehydrated lips. It heals lips very quickly and is extra-hydrating. For me, it works better than any lip balm on the market.”

Lansinoh HPA Lanolin, $6.59, available at Amazon.

The Expert: Makeup artist Monika Blunder
Clients: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Behati Prinsloo, Megan Fox

“This is one of my go-to lip stains because it’s the perfect nude shade. I use it on Behati [Prinsloo] and Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] all the time, and they love it because it looks so natural on the lips and stays on like a stain,” Blunder says. “The color payoff is great, and the formula is super-easy to apply.”

The Expert: Makeup artist Pati Dubroff
Clients: Miley Cyrus, Dakota Johnson, Eva Mendes

"All the mascara junkies I know agree that this is, hands-down, the best drugstore choice," Dubroff tells us. "The brush perfectly lifts lashes at the base and fans them out, all while depositing serious volume. It’s quite an accomplishment, because often volume mascara doesn't give the lift it promises. Plus, the brush also works on bottom lashes!"

L'Oréal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara, $8.49, available at Ulta.
12 of 62
The Expert: Makeup artist Julie Harris
Clients: Julianne Hough, Allison Williams, Ashley Bell

"I love the strong pigments in this," Harris tells us. "It goes on matte, but it isn't drying; it's more of a velvet texture. I love Aphrodite Kiss, a beautiful poppy-red color that looks great with just mascara or a soft, nude eyeshadow."

L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Aphrodite Kiss, $9.99, available at L'Oréal.

The Expert: Makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis
Clients: Olivia Wilde, Kate Hudson, Rosamund Pike

“I love these eyeshadow sticks for a summer smoky eye!” Inglessis says. "The colors are vibrant, easy to use, and long-wearing. Apply it onto the top and bottom lashline and smudge it with your finger or a brush, or apply on the top lid for deeper color. But the best advice is to just play around and have fun with these!"

Rimmel London Volume Flash Eye Shadow Stick, $3.99, available at Target.

The Expert: Makeup artist Carola Gonzalez
Clients: Kerry Washington, Rashida Jones, Jaime King

"I'm obsessed with this shade [Copenhagen]; if you find it, buy a few, 'cause it's usually sold out!" Gonzalez says. "It complements every skin tone, and it's extra long-lasting. You can wear it with just a few coats of mascara, and it will instantly create a runway makeup look."

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream, $7.01, available at Amazon.
17 of 62
The Expert: Makeup artist Fiona Stiles
Clients: Jennifer Garner, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Faris

“Most body makeup destroys clothes because the formulas tend to be a bit oily, which means it never really dries — and then your clothes get stained — but this stuff seriously stays put,” Stiles says. “Use a little to give a bit of color to the body, or you can use a lot to really cover problem areas, like bruises or varicose veins.”

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs, $11.39, available at Target.

The Expert: Makeup artist Pati Dubroff
Clients: Miley Cyrus, Dakota Johnson, Eva Mendes

“There are many primers on the market, but this is the one I turn to again and again,” Dubroff tells us. “It has a perfect, satiny finish and doesn't add a lot of weight on the top of the skin. It perfectly blurs out pores and fine lines.”

L'Oréal Revitalift Miracle Blur, $15.93, available at Amazon.

The Expert: Makeup artist Adam Breuchaud
Clients: Kate Beckinsale, Hilary Duff

"All three shades of this stick are killer, and the formula makes it easy to create a healthy-looking glow on skin," Breuchaud says, noting that you can dab and blend this creamy formula into bare skin or over makeup. "You can brighten and highlight anywhere, from your cheekbones to your eyes, from the tip of your nose to your lips."

Flower Glisten Up Highlighter Chubby, $9.98, available at Walmart.

The Expert: Makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic
Clients: Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Chrissy Teigen

Fun fact: If you don't set your makeup, it might melt off throughout the day. Dedivanovic suggests using a damp Beautyblender to pat this powder under the eyes, so your undereye concealer sets — and stays all day.

The Expert: Makeup artist Allan Avendaño
Clients: Shay Mitchell, Zendaya

When a makeup palette breaks on set, it sends the pros into a frenzy. But if a drugstore is around, a holy grail product might just be a few blocks away — and that's exactly what happened for Avendaño. When a neutral palette shattered, he picked this up as a last-minute resort. "To my surprise, every single one of the colors in the palette were so much more versatile on their own than I thought they would be. I used it to create a beautifully fresh look for day and transitioned it easily with a smokier eye for night," he told Teen Vogue.

“There's no need to spend lots of money on mascara,” Gonzalez says. “The LashBlast formula is amazing and adds lots of volume and length to your lashes.

The Expert: Makeup artist Vanessa Scali
Clients: Christina Hendricks, Anna Kendrick, America Ferrera

"This is one of my favorite drugstore staples for a bold, matte lip," Scali tells us. "The cream formula goes on smooth and feels very comfortable on the lips. There is a smudger on the opposite end of the pencil that is used to blur and smudge the color for your desired effect. Use a touch for a stained, bitten lip, or go [for] full, bold color. My favorites are Cherry Cherry Bang Bang, Partner in Crimson, and Orange Ya Glad."

"Physicians [Formula] is, hands-down, the authority on drugstore bronzers," Sarmiento says.
