Looking like a million bucks doesn’t mean spending a lot on beauty products. The trick is using the right makeup techniques and brands that do the job without costing you an arm and a leg. We combed the beauty counters of Robinsons Department Store for products to create these four fabulous (and affordable) everyday looks.

Do the dewy

For a dewy, flawless aura, use L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Contour Palette and top it off with the coral shade of L’Oreal Lucent Magique Cushion Glow Blush for a fresh glow. You can never go wrong with Maybelline Fashion Brow Pomade Crayon and Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color. Swipe some lip gloss over the latter and you’re good to go.

Kitty eyes
To give your eyeliner style some edge, start with an Ever Bilena All Day Eyeliner Pen in black. A hint of Sleek Makeup Highlighter Palette in Distorted Dreams helps create an out-of-the-box look without going overboard. Finish with a Cathy Doll Lip Smile Color Lip Balm Stick.

Ombre effect
Leaving school for a night on the town? Prime yourself with IN2IT BB Bright 5 in 1 Makeup, then use The Falsies Pushup Angel Waterpoof Mascara by Maybelline and Cathy Doll Nude Me Nude Eyeshadow for a seamless day-to-night look. Achieve the ombre effect with Maybelline’s Lip Flush Bitten Lip in Blackberry Cinnamon.

Smash mouth
Give your lip-tone lipsticks a rest. For something fun and fierce, try Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds. L’Oreal Rouge Magique in Royal The Fort and Royal Veloute are daring choices, too. Complement with a bit of eyeliner and subtle blush.
