In our makeup-obsessed world, it’s easy to forget that makeup doesn’t have to be expensive in order for it to be good. There are plenty of makeup products out there that are just as high quality and long lasting as the ones you find at Sephora or Ulta, but cost a fraction of the price.
In this post and video, we’re going to talk about some of the best makeup under $5 – makeup that will help you get beautiful without breaking your budget!

Here’s everything mentioned in the video!
Wet ‘n Wild Tinted Hydrator
The Wet ‘n Wild Tinted Hydrator is one of my absolute favorite finds of 2021. This is magic in a $4.99 bottle. The shade range is not great at all, but with some mixing drops you can likely get it to a perfect shade without having to spend too much money. This is a light to medium coverage product and makes the skin look absolutely flawless.
e.l.f. Bite-Size Face Duo
The e.l.f. Bite-Size Face Duos are a gorgeous blush and highlighter combo in one little package. They are creamy, pigmented, and the shade selection is on point!
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter
The Essence Pure Nude Highlighter is a long-time favorite drugstore product. It is not a blinding metallic highlight, but it gives a beautiful subtle glow. If you like to glow but don’t want to look too intense, you will absolutely love this product!
e.l.f. Bite-Size Eyeshadow Palettes
The e.l.f. Bite-Size Eyeshadows are truly impressive. They feel like high end eyeshadows to me! I love the shade selection, and how compact the packaging is. My favorite ones are Cream and Sugar and Pumpkin Pie.
Essence Lash Princess Mascara
The Essence Lash Princess Mascara is my top favorite drugstore mascara of all time. It gives volume, length, curl, and separation. Literally everything I want from a mascara!
Essence The Blush
Essence The Blush is a satin, creamy blush that absolutely feels high end. I cannot believe this blush is $2.99! Truly the best blush I’ve ever found at the drugstore.
