Looking fabulous shouldn't require spending a small fortune. Many people can't afford the high-priced cosmetics that are out there, so finding great cheap makeup is key. Luckily, many brands offer affordable makeup products that deliver gorgeous results. And the best part? You can snag some of the best makeup products for less than $10. If you'd rather have them delivered to your door, check out these monthly grooming kit subscriptions.
Cosmetics mainstays like NYX and E.L.F. sell a ton of high-quality cosmetics for under $10. And they aren't the only affordable makeup brands out there – you'll also find good options from Rimmel London, L'Oreal Paris, Maybelline, and more.
From a tried-and-true favorite mascara to a fun, floral-infused lip gloss, these products will give you the most bang for your beauty buck.

Stipple your way into stunning with the Miracle Complexion Sponge by Real Techniques (around $8). When compared to the more expensive Beautyblender, the lower priced sponge did pretty much the same job, with some reviews saying it had one extra perk the Beautyblender doesn't: a flat bottom that keeps it from rolling off the counter.
