Are you short on cash but don't want to give up your beauty addiction? Then, check out our list of the best budget beauty buys and be a recessionista with a flawless face. (Tried and tested at actual shoots by yours truly!)

Foundation

Black Opal: Flawless Match Foundation
Great range of color for darker skin.
Neutrogena: Skin Clearing Oil-Free Makeup with salicylic acid

Concealer

Physicians Formula: Circle Rx Circle Control Concealer

Powder

L'oreal Paris: True Match Super Blendable Powder

Blush

•Milani Minerals: Blush with Brush
My favorite color is 203 Mai-Tai; it's great for fair to medium skin.
L'Oreal: Feel Naturale Light Softening Powder Blush
290 Mocha Rose is great for giving a glow to darker skin.

Shimmer        

Milani: Glimmer Stripes All-Over Color, 09 Terra Glimmer
Revlon: Skinlights Face Illuminator Loose Powder
 
Eye Shadow
•Revlon: Colorstay 12 Hour Eyeshadow Quad
For an easy "smoky eye" I recommend 11 Sultry Smoke.
CoverGirl: Eye Enhancers
205 Tropical Fusion is a great way to add a burst of color to your makeup bag.

Eyeliner

Wet n Wild: Kohl Eyeliner Pencil
Both 659C Turquoise and 655 Charcoal are great for everyone—and they are soft, so they won't tug unnecessarily at the delicate eye area.

Liquid Eyeliner

•Wet n Wild: Mega Liner
The tip of these great liners are just stiff enough to get a great, even line. 863 Turquoise and 868 Dark Brown are my top picks.

Mascara

•Wet n Wild: Mega Protein Mascara, 641 Black

Lip Liner

•Wet n Wild: Creme Lip Liner, 712 Willow
•Milani: Easyliner for Lips
01 Sugar Plum is a great all-around color for everyone.

Lip Gloss

InColor by Jordana: Squeeze n’ Shine Super Shiny Tasty Lip Gloss, 02 Mandarin Glaze
•L'Oreal Paris: HIP (High Intensity Pigments), Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss, 838 Sweet

Lipstick

•CoverGirl: TruShine Lipcolor Lipstick
470 Nude Shine is exactly what the name indicates, gorgeous nude lipstick with a hint of shine.
•Rimmel: 074 Red Hot is the perfect red.
•Milani: Velvet Lips Lipstick, 205 Divine is a great, dark grape color.
