When I first started building my makeup collection, I didn't have very much money at all. I was too broke for the high-end makeup of my dreams, so instead, I decided to start with the best drugstore makeup I could find. Whether you're still in the penny-pinching phase or just have a preference for affordable makeup, the cheapest Walmart beauty deals for under $5 can help you get your beauty fix on a budget.
With only 20 bucks, you can go home with a combination of makeup that can give you an amazing glow with a highlighter that's the best dupe for MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle, help you try the matte lipstick trend, or master that year-round glow with the perfect bronzer. Read on to see a round up of the best affordable Walmart makeup.
Want a highlight that can be seen from miles away? There's a whole host of affordable highlighters that are as good (if not better) as some splurge-worthy options.
