Celeb-Approved Beauty Products Under $20
It turns out some of Hollywood’s biggest earners aren’t actually spending all their dollars on high-end products. Instead, they’re opting for drugstore favorites for getting glam – even when they’re on the red carpets! From affordable body washes and oils to lipsticks, foundations, and faux lashes, here’s what to stock up on, without going broke.
Cardi B’s Awards Foundation Look
Mehron Makeup Celebré Pro-HD Cream Foundation, $14.50: When our ultimate girl crush needs to bring her A-game for an event, Cardi’s makeup artist Nichole Ray applies Mehron Makeup’s Pro-HD foundation to give her flawless coverage and contour, minus the caked-on look. ‘Cause we all know Cardi wouldn’t stand for a subpar face beat.

Mary J. Blige’s Oscars Nails Look
KISS Salon Acrylic in Forbidden, $5: Stars like Mary J. Blige have access to the top manicurists in the world, that could easily bling out their nails in a million crystals and diamonds that cost the big bucks. Yet for this year’s Oscars, Mary opted for an easy-to-apply acrylic press-on. And the best part is (aside from the $5 price tag) you can paint them any color you like and the stiletto shape is already set for you. Mani goals AF. Shop them here.
Khloe Kardashian’s Secret To Smooth Skin
Dial Skin Therapy Enriching Body Wash, $4: Mommy-to-be Khloe Kardashian is no stranger to pampering, but one of her trusty body wash picks had us a little shook. She likes drugstore-staple Dial when she hits the shower, saying she prefers the one with Himalayan salt and exfoliating beads because it’s antibacterial and makes her “feel really clean after.” BRB, purchasing now. Shop it here.
Emma Watson’s Easy Glow
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain, $10: Emma Watson always has her hair and makeup game on point, but it’s her ever-changing lip looks that really make us stop and do a double take. One of her go-tos? The Body Shop’s dual-purpose lip (and cheek) stain for its lightweight, long-lasting, gluten-free formula. Not only does it promise not to budge for up to 12 hours, but it comes in five super flattering shades – Emma’s go-to is Red Pomegranate 300. Shop it here.
Jennifer Lopez’s Fav Lashes
Ardell Faux Mink Demi Wispies, $7: Want luscious lashes like J.Lo? Don’t we all, but they might be easier to come by than you think. Jenny from the Block has been known to rock Ardell’s Demi Wispies in faux mink for an extra feathery vibe, and for less than $10 a set, you can too. Shop them here.
Cindy Crawford’s Go-To Skin Essential
Neutrogena Body Oil, $10: Considering supermodel Cindy Crawford never ages, we’re down to do just about anything she does in the name of beauty, and that means committing to her bathtime routine, which includes dry brushing. Loofah’ing up your bod without the soaps is known (and loved) for its ability to help with lymphatic drainage — and reduce the appearance of cellulite — but Cindy likes to follow up a good exfoliation sesh with body oil instead of moisturizer afterward. No wonder she’s so flawless. Shop it here.
