Top Ten Beauty Products Under $20

I asked you guys on Instagram Stories what you wanted to see next and one of my amazing Internet friends replied with the suggestion to do a "Top 5 Beauty Products under $20". I loved the idea so much I decided to write about 10 of them! All of the products below are major favorites of mine and I hope they become staples in your make up bag as well. 

The NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator is a phenomenal base under matte/full coverage foundations. It gives a beautiful, subtle glow. I like mixing it with my primer and sometimes even wear it alone for every day radiance. All the colors are great but I especially love Sunbeam and Gleam.

The Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser is a magic pen - I swear! I use the color Neutralizer which has a slight yellow tint to mask and brighten my bags. Love the consistency and coverage!

Alright I may be bias here this being my sister-in-laws brand but I pretty much only use M.O.T.D Cosmetics brushes. This is an all vegan cruelty free line! My fave brushes are Mr. Handyman (perfect for setting the under eye) and Blending Bestie. 

For a soft warm glow I LOVE Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. It blends in flawlessly and is not
too bronzy or shimmery. Physicians Formula has the best drugstore bronzers by far! 

Nothing beats this drugstore mascara, the Loreal Voluminous Original Mascara. I mean you guys know how much I love the IT Cosmetics one but this is a close second especially for under $20. I get the curved brush in Blackest Black. 

I've been using this Colour Pop Highlighter since I became obsessed with the brand about 3 years ago.
I prefer highlighters that blend into the skin and give a sheen rather than an intense streak of color.
This does just that and so amazingly! I use my ring finger to press it into my skin. Color is called
Lunch Money.

The Ardell Demi Wispies, (particularly number 120) are my favorite lashes ever. They create such a natural full lash and are better when re-used a million times. 

Ok let's be real...who hasn't talked about the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte/Glow Foundations? I feel like I see it on every single YouTube tutorial. But, it is seriously THAT good. I love both the Matte and the Glow. Depends on how my skin is feeling for the day. 

I actually discovered these wipes through a sponsored opportunity with Aveeno and I guess you can say I became obsessed. AveenoPositively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes smell so good and are substantially moist (a pet-peeve 
of mine is when wipes are not "wet" enough). I love the way my skin feels when I strip away my makeup using this product!

I'm finishing off my list with the one product under $20 that I wear every single day - The Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Line. They have a wide variety of categories and 
colors ranging from the Nudes to the Mattes. I love and own them all. If you are ever wondering what lipstick color I wear 99% of the time it is Clay Crush from this line.



  1. I’m totally late to that foundation but now I must try it! I’ve been using the maybelline fit me one forever!

  2. Can totally agree with numbers 7,8,10! Can't wait to try the others. ��

  3. Lovely post number 1 is a fav of mine too! And beautiful photos of your space! That chair is gorgeous!

  4. SO many great picks-- I love Butter Bronzer and Colourpop Highlighters, such a steal for the price!


Thank you so very much for all your comments they mean the world to me! Keep spreading the love and inspiration. xo ejc
