Beauty products don’t always have to come with a big price tag. I love expensive makeup and skincare products as much as anyone, but I often find really great beauty items at places like Target very inexpensively.
For the Spring 2018 issue of Luca Magazine I charged our glam crew with finding fantastic beauty products that cost $20 or less. My task was to see what I could find at Target. I wanted to see if you could create all the new season’s beauty looks with bargain priced beauty products. Here is what I found:

I broke my beauty finds at Target into 6 categories
Most skin problems start with your choice of cleanser. A cleanser that strips the skin creates a dry and lifeless looking complexion for normal to dry skinned girls, and actually creates more oil for oily skinned girls! I found 2 of my favorite types of cleanser for bargain prices. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water removes makeup and cleanses the skin and is good for all skin types. At $6.99 it is an absolute bargain!
My other favorite type of cleanser is an oil cleanser. Oil cleansers dissolve all makeup, even the most stubborn waterproof mascaras, and are extra gentle on the skin. Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil costs $15.99 and is worth every penny.

No matter what is in your moisturizer or your foundation you still need to use a free standing facial SPF.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch SPF 100 has a dry finish that keeps your makeup in place, feels light on your skin and gives you the maximum broad spectrum protection for only $9.99. If I were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one product with me, this would be it!
As the sun comes back out to play the last thing you want is a heavy foundation, but you’re not quite ready to go bare. The perfect cross season product is a BB Cream.
L’Oreal Skin Beautifier BB Cream gives you glowing, gorgeous skin, evens out your color and keeps you looking fresh! With a $7.99 price tag it is super affordable.

Every girl needs a killer eyeliner. Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel liner in black is the inkiest, glossiest black you will ever find, and at $7.99 it’s a bargain too!
If you prefer a pen eyeliner NYX Epic Ink Liner gives you a feline flick for the same price.
There are no end of bargain priced lip products. Some of my favorites are by NYX and cost $6.99. Their Butter Lip Glosses have a fabulous color payoff and stay nice and creamy. If you want a super saturated matte lip the NYX Full Throttle Lipstick in Firestorm packs a mega punch for the new season! My personal favorite, a lipstick that I have worn for several years now is Cover Girl Colorliscious Lipstick in shade 325, Spellbound. This is the absolute perfect fuchsia and you cannot beat it at any price point.
