The best cheaper alternatives to your favorite makeup products
Makeup is certainly magical, but it can also be incredibly expensive. How often do you cringe when you see the "Best Makeup" awards in magazines and look at the prices? They sound fab, of course, but can you ever justify that $65 foundation?
That's why I'm here to give you an unbiased look at the best makeup products around — and their cheaper alternatives. Because there are times that $25 lipstick is worth it (your wedding day, that black tie affair, a romantic getaway), but there are plenty more opportunities for that almost-just-as-good $7 lipstick.
To do this right, we enrolled the help of two beauty experts to give us their best cheaper alternatives to your favorite makeup products. Karuna Chani is an internationally-recognized, New York-based makeup artist, image and skin care consultant. Annie Lawless is a beauty blogger who has been named a New York Times Best Selling Author and a winner of the Forbes "30 Under 30" award.
Without further ado, here are your top favorite makeup products, and their cheaper alternatives.
