Must-haves, cult favourites, holy grails or whatever you may call them, makeup is BAE. While they may not always be affordable but you'd rather be broke than not own them. But let's be honest, a girl’s gotta save too. So with a little bit of luck and lot of research, we have come with a list that will help you save and look like a million bucks. So without further ado, here is what we found.

1. NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is much loved for its natural finish and its lightweight coverage is vouched for by a lot of YouTube’s makeup gurus. But it costs a bomb. So, we have L'Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte Foundation that does the same job seamlessly and at a much better price.

2. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is like the magical wand that banishes all the shadows from under our eyes in a jiffy, but the price tag is what makes it a little tough to invest in. But a wise girl knows how to save. The L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD is a phenomenal product that comes in an incredible range of shades. It happens to be a great dupe and works like a charm.

3. Rumour has it; the secret to a lot of Hollywood Celebs' flawless skin is the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder. A lot of professional MUAs have confessed it to be their secret but man the price tag. Well, worry not because Bharat & Dorris Loose Powder does the exact same job flawlessly and is equally long lasting.
