Everything was glowy and affordable. 

Celebrity skin is often out-of-this-world flawless, and the foundation picks to go with their looks can often be out of the budget. But this year at the MTV Awards, celebrities who have skin that we would kill to have used reasonably priced foundations on their skin. The right foundation means everything for a luminous finish which makes these makeup tips such a steal. Here were some of our favorite celebrities who used foundation under $50 on their skin.

Issa Rae

We are obsessed with Issa Rae and her skin. Needless to say, any tip off of what she uses is such a major win. The actress and writer of HBO’s Insecure used Kat Von D’s Lock-It foundation for the radiant look.,

Yara Shahidi

Stop it, Yara! This girl just won’t rest with all of the fierce looks and untouchable makeup looks. Plus, her skin is just so supple and radiant. The star of Blackish and the spinoff series in development used Laura Mercier’s Candle Glow Foundation.

Thankful for the face love 💕@tashareikobrown 💕

Zendaya’s makeup looks have been Cover Girl or bust as of late, and we have no complaints! The super affordable foundation that she used at the Met Gala and likely again at the MTV Awards was Cover Girl’s Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation., $11.49

I think green is my new power color 🍏 @covergirl

Taraji P. Henson

We are always getting future-slay goals from this unstoppable actress. Plus, she has the best skin tricks to exfoliate. She came through once again with the foundation used by her makeup artist’s own beauty brand to provide dual-foundation stick that plays nicely with our beauty budget. The Perfect Blend Stick from Ashunta Sherriff Beauty comes with both a highlighter and base shade., $40
