While playing with makeup is fun, it's not exactly the most budget-friendly hobby to have. This one will be my next Holy Grail, you say, but next thing you know, you’re emptying your wallet just to fill up your vanity. Trying out the latest makeup release will always be a gamble, and that’s why we suggest reading reviews first. Or better yet, look at what your favorite stars are using and cherry-pick their most affordable finds. That way, you can look and feel like an artista without blowing your entire allowance. 

Too lazy to scour the web? We’ve got you. Here’s a roundup of 8 budget-friendly and celeb-approved products to try for your next ‘no-makeup’ makeup look: 

1. Maris Racal: Nichido Professional Lip Pencil in Rosette

Before Maris applies lipstick, she first fills in her lips with a Nichido lip pencil. The result is an extra *juicy* pout that stays put all day.
