Keeping face — an artistic, perfectly contoured one, no less — doesn’t have to completely kill your budget. In fact, there are tons of drugstore items that work their magic for a fraction of the price. Yet sifting through aisles and aisles (and aisles!) of makeup isn’t for the impatient. There are tons of factors that go into selecting makeup — your complexion and preferred formula are two of them. To make your search slightly easier, we asked our friends at drugstore mecca CVS for their 10 best-selling products and listed them below in no particular order.
1. e.l.f. Poreless Face Primer
It doesn’t take a beauty expert to know that a primer should be a key part of any makeup routine. A good primer will keep your makeup in place, reduce fine lines, and blur the appearance of pores. When it comes to drugstore buys, it doesn’t get much better than e.l.f.’s primer. Not only does this formula do everything a primer should do, it also has tea tree extract, vitamin A, and vitamin E, all of which have anti-aging and/or restorative properties.
