SAN ANTONIO — Do you need a full coverage makeup look, but don’t want to break the bank? I have got you covered! College is expensive, I get it, but that shouldn’t stop you from having your face beat for the gods. I have got a few necessary products that’ll have you looking fierce despite your budget.

Primer: If you want to hide those pesky pores, NYX Professional Makeup Pore Filler will do just the trick at a price of around eight dollars! Put this primer where you want your pores minimized and it will help conceal and provide a base for your foundation.

Foundation: For a full coverage foundation look, Milani Perfect Foundation Concealer has your back. For about $10 this foundation will provide a build-able coverage to your desire. It also allows you to have the option to skip applying concealer, as the foundation already has concealer.
