We all get a thrill when we see the NARS holiday collection wrapped in a pretty bow, or the new MAC liquid eyeliner that promises to last through hell and back. But, when a beauty product gives us the luxe looks of runway stardom — at the price point of a Costco hot dog — we cue up our happy dance.
So, it's no surprise we tasked makeup wizard Tiffany Patton
to create seven high-octane makeup looks fit for a holiday party with just five beauty products from the drugstore
. And, boy, did she come through. Patton transforms a black gel liner into a burgundy lip stain, a deceptively unassuming lip balm into a highlighter, and more...oh, so much more.
Get the most bang for your buck, literally, with these seven runway-worthy makeup looks, courtesy of your local drugstore, ahead.
