19 Super Affordable Makeup Products To Start Off A Beginner

Up to 75% Off for Bulk Beads & Jewelry Making Supplies

This article will be pretty useful and helpful for all beginners in the makeup industry who are just getting started with makeup and looking for affordable makeup products.

Even I was unsure where to begin when it came to make-up. Where can I find affordable makeup products? Which affordable makeup products should I start with? What are some good makeup brands that aren’t too expensive? I’ve asked all of these questions. I’ll be honest, just as in the fashion industry, make-up can be a bit intimidating too because there are so many makeup products out there you may not know what to purchase. As a newbie, I or any makeup professional can tell you that you can confidently start and finish any stunning makeup look without spending too much money.

Personally, I believe that spending a lot of money on makeup products you’ll be learning how to apply when you’re just starting out with makeup is a bit impractical. Don’t get me wrong, some high-end products are definitely worth the expense, but you can set it aside as a beginner and go for affordable makeup products and work your way up.

Makeup is such an important part of my life, and I am so passionate about it that I never forget that I was once a beginner. It can be really overwhelming and believe me, I understand because I’ve been there before. As a result, I’ve decided to take it upon myself to help anyone who has developed an interest in makeup and is ready to begin by sharing a list of affordable makeup products you can add to your start-up kit.

All of the items in this list are from the same store/website, Miss A. I decided to focus not only on the affordable/budget-friendly aspect but also on items that are simple to use, of good quality, and can be used on a daily basis (i.e., products that can be utilized for more natural, neutral looks).

Super Affordable Make-Up Products To Start Off A Beginner



A+ Tallash Mascara – $1.88


This product is believed to blend as well as give your natural eyelashes the lift they may require. It’s available in two colors: black and brown.


Wow! I did not think I was going to be like this because the wand looks so different. Boy, was I wrong! This is some of the BEST mascara I have used in a long time! I love this much more than the other mascaras that were recently launched (curl, volume, length). It does an amazing job coating and separating every lash. It also lifts, curls, and lengthens. Now if only we can get this mascara in a waterproof formula as well! It would be perfect!
