L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara, $7.25, in Carbon Black
With celebrity clients like Jessica Alba, Molly Sims, Rachel Zoe and Diane Von Furstenberg, celebrity makeup artist and co-founder of Ish Beauty, Joey Maalouf, told TotalBeauty.com he chooses this drugstore mascara over luxury brands.
"Two coats on the top and bottom lashes are perfect for adding volume and thickness to your lashes, without clumps, smudging or flaking," Maalouf said. No need to drop over $20 on quality mascara. You can pick up some of the best drugstore makeup for less than $8.
As for removing makeup? This drugstore makeup steal is at the top of the list for many, including professional makeup artists. Ariana Grande's go-to makeup artist, Daniel Chinchilla, told InStyle that he relies on this "supermoisturizing" drugstore pick to remove all traces of makeup.
With celebrity clients like Olivia Culpo and Cara Santana, celebrity makeup artist Brittany Spyksma told Byrdie that she relies on this drugstore makeup for all her makeup-setting and mattifying needs. According to Spyksma, a little goes a long way, and it will keep makeup in place all day long.
Revlon ColorStay Concealer, $10.99
We're always on the lookout for a quality drugstore concealer, which is why we turned to celebrity makeup artist Nina Park for suggestions. With a roster that includes the likes of Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Bella Thorne, we trust her picks. Her drugstore concealer of choice? The Revlon ColorStay Concealer. Park told Harper's Bazaar she loves this drugstore makeup for the wand application and ability to use it as a highlighter -- just be sure to select a color two shades lighter than your skin tone, said Park.
