While we'd never decry splurging on a special makeup product every so often, we love when a drug- or dollar-store find can deliver the same look for way less. That's why we challenged makeup artist Julia to create a full face using only $20 worth of products — she sourced everything from a dollar-store! As you can see, the result looks dynamite and anything but discount. Check out the video below to watch Julia's full tutorial, and see what thrifty swaps you can make for your makeup bag.
