However, Bader did find foundation, eye shadow, blush and lip balm for under $50.
Her best advice?
“Spend some time. Don't rush through it. Don't go for the first thing that you see. Walk through the aisles, go back and forth, kind of compare ingredients,” says Bader.
Bader says to choose a palette that can work for your eyes and cheek. She also says spending a lot on mascara is a waste.
Don't forget brushes are an added expense, you can get three of them for less than $15 - just make sure to wash them to make them last.
