Close your eyes and imagine your makeup bag. You could probably recite its contents by heart, right? We cart our cosmetics around like armor, reaching for them whenever we need to face the day (or, let's be honest, when our faces need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up). While we adore every last item in those pouches, we can't help but wonder whether they're as complete as they could be.
To help us give our beauty stashes a boost, we turned to the pros: makeup artists Janessa Paré and Troy Surratt. So, whether you're on a drugstore budget or the people at the department store makeup counter know your name, we have exactly what the artists ordered. Ahead, find everything you need to overhaul your makeup bag, based on how much dough you're willing to spend. Your makeup makeover is just a couple of credit-card swipes away.
