Ever wanted to recreate Kim Kardashian's flawless look or Lucy Hale's soft and playful look without overspending or maxing out your credit card? Well, guess what? With this guide, you can do just that!

Today we're sharing with you a compilation that is the result of many (and we mean many ) trials and errors that have been spent trying to achieve a lasting, flawless look without spending heaps of money on the high-end products used by celebrity makeup artists. 


Having also tried our fair share of higher-end products, we can tell you first-hand that many of the products included in this list are the perfect dupes for those higher-end products. What's even better is the fact that everything included in this list can be found at many of your local pharmacies or beauty shops! Ready? Here we go!


We'll start with creating a flawless complexion like Lucy's. Here,we'll need a good concealer and foundation. For under the eyes, Bourjois' new Healthy Mix Concealer will do you wonders! This product is a fruit-based formula that blends seamlessly into the skin and smooths away dark circles, all for only 82 EGP! As for the rest of the face, try Catrice's Infinite Matte Foundation. This oil-free product delivers that flawless complexion that we all desire to achieve.


Applying a thin layer with a stippling brush in circular motions will give you medium coverage and will leave your skin looking absolutely stunning! Catrice foundations can be found at any Seif Pharmacy for 60 – 85 EGP.    


Next, we move onto the eyes. We can probably all agree how important it is to get the eyes just right when applying makeup. To get lasting sultry eyes like Lucy's, apply Catrice's Gel Liner to your top lash line (40 EGP),   Maybelline's Kohl Liner to your waterline (30 EGP), and L'Oreal's Extra Volume Collagen Mascara (120 EGP.) 

For an extra touch that will take your look to the next level, apply       Ardell's False Lashes (30 EGP.) Catrice's Gel Liner can be found at Seif Pharmacy, Maybelline products can be found at Carrefour, L'Oreal products can be found at many local pharmacies and beauty shops, and Ardell lashes can be found at any Ezaby Pharmacy.  


Last, but not least, let's add a little color, shall we? For the perfect rosy cheeks that will last all day,give Catrice's Defining Blush a try (40 – 50 EGP.) To finish off this gorgeous look from Lucy Hale, opt for a soft pink shade like the shade Intense Pink from Maybelline's ColorSensational Lipstick line (65 EGP.)


There you have it – a red-carpet-worthy face for a fraction of the price! Apply these products with the right brushes and watch as your beauty is accentuated right before your very eyes!
