We dared ourselves to recreate celebrity hairstyles and makeup looks that normally cost hundreds of dollars using only drugstore beauty products. Did we succeed?
Jessica Alba's MakeupWho tried it: Sharon Yi, Intern
Approximate primping time: 4 minutes total
What she used:
L'Oreal Paris Extra Volume Hydra Collagen Plumping Mascara, $5
Mark Juice Gems Lip Gloss, $6.50
Milani Tantastic Face and Body Baked Bronzer, $8
Maybelline EyeStudio in Copper Chic, $6.49
Sonia Kashuk False Lashes, $9.99
Her thoughts: I chose this look because it looked simple with not a lot of crazy colors so I figured there’d be no room to mess up. Turns out I was right.
First I bronzed my skin with the bronzer all over until I got a natural glow. Then I started using the lightest color of the Maybelline eye shadow palette for the inner rims of my eyes. I used the darkest color on my base and softened the edges with my finger, then I used the same color to line the bottom of my eye. I curled my lashes and put on mascara but because I have such thin eyelashes, I added some fake lashes to give some extra oomph. Last, just a quick swipe of sheer lip gloss and I was good to go.
