We’re still on a drugstore makeup kick (with more in store, so stay tuned!), which can only mean one thing: We’ll stop at nothing to scoop out the creme de la creme beauty products that aren’t saddled with a hefty price tag. And this week, we came across some of the very best finds (SPOILER ALERT: pro makeup artists swear by them). From skincare tips to DIY nail hacks and Gigi Hadid, we have all of the beauty news below.

And with that, we’re off to our local CVS to do some pre-game makeup shopping for the weekend. K. Bye!
