You work hard for your money, which is why you should spend it wisely. When it comes to recreating the best runway beauty trends, looking (and feeling) like a million bucks shouldn’t have to cost you a fortune. Here, we rounded up our favorite spring makeup looks and the drugstore beauty buys to recreate them. And since you won’t find anything over $16, you can look on trend without having to spend your entire paycheck—and that’s something to feel good about.
This might not be your obvious go-to lipstick shade for spring, but dark, vampy lips are sure to be everywhere this season.
Step out of your comfort zone with eye shadows in all shades of the rainbow. Apply color to the crease or opt for a slightly more dramatic look that extends to the brow bone. If your feeling extra daring, apply shadow along the lower lash line too.
Put down the super-matte foundations this spring and opt for something a bit more luminous and fresh-looking.
The blue-eyeliner trend from last spring is back again. Ranging from bold cobalts to electric blues, this look is versatile enough to complement any eye color and skin tone.
Load up on the mascara and bat those lashes. Long, thick and clumpy lashes are a look all on their own so keep the rest of your makeup simple and neutral.
Allow your lips to make a statement, even when you're not talking. Bright trending shades range from the coral red to hot pink and include everything in between.
