Celeb Makeup Artist Brett Freedman's Drugstore Finds

Ahhhh summer....  Let's be honest it's the season that stands alone when we're ranking seasons.  Warm weather, cooking out, beaches - there's always something to do (which inevitably means always something to spend money on).  Fortunately, celeb makeup artist Brett Freedman is a huge fan of drugstore finds and below tells us what his faves are.  The bonus, they're all under $10, which means you can spend your money on other things, like a new pair of strappy wedges!

Maybelline's ColorSensational lipstick in Disco Pink: This shade is right on trend! A true salmon that feels just a touch more interesting than the run-of-the-mill pink. Perfect for gals that are hesitant to ride the coral wave that's all the rage right now. Color aside, the formula is a great combo of gloss and pigmented lipstick, close to a glaze. I have all of these shades in my kit. I've used on Brittany Snow with beautiful results!

Physician's Happy Booster blush in Natural: So fun! What a terrific glow of natural summer radiance. I heart the slight shimmer! Swirl your brush to combine all the sweet pink shades together and sweep on apples of cheeks for a lit from within glow. Great for day or evening. I've used this on Candace Accola from The Vampire Diaries.

Wet 'n Wild Eyeshadow Trio in Sweet As Candy: What a great change up on neutrals. I always like a pop of color in shadows, so the soft cherry shade to sweeten the look gets a rave review from me! Though it says to use the pink color on the lid, my tip would be to use the champagne hue on the lid and brow bone and use the pink on just the outer corner to add interest and a bit more subtle drama. I've used this trio on Patricia Heaton for a neutral eye look with a twist.

Milani Color Brilliance Eye Pencil in Green. Shhh...I'm secretly obsessed with Milani! I love how colorful and blingy their line is. It's also priced right! These metallic pencils are great paired with a tan or bronzed face. Metallics are great in the summer because they catch light and feel young and fresh, add zingy colors like these and the effect feels so modern. My tip is to use colored eye pencils with neutral shadows. Apply the pencil very close to lash line and soften/blend with your finger or a cotton swab. Line the entire eye, around the tear duct and on the inner shelf. I've used this shade on Katerina Graham to liven up her already gorgeous eyes.
