Budget Beauty: Taraji P. Henson Wore Drugstore Products on the Oscars Red Carpet!

So while cruising the web for content, I came across a post in conjunction with a product release by Glossier.  Makeup artists were giving the rundown on how they used the hot new products and I stopped in my cyber tracks when Ashunta Sherriff, Taraji's go-to MUA, mentioned three products I can find at my local beauty supply store! Mind. Blown! (Not really, artists do it all the time, but I was happy to see a mix of lux and affordable beauty products used.) Keep reading to see what they are!

See glam doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg! Taraji's makeup was gorgeous. 

Here are the rest of the products that Ashunta used on Taraji:

"I always use Dermaflash 2.0 on Taraji before any major red carpet event so her skin is smooth and ready for makeup. Then I used Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Serum and Skyn Iceland Eye Patches on the eyes for 10 minutes. For complexion, we used Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer with my Perfect Blend by Ashunta Sheriff—it's a dual ended foundation and concealer that helps you get even in one step. To help pop Taraji’s already amazing cheekbones I used Glossier Cloud Paintin Haze on the apples of her cheeks using my fingertips so the look stayed soft and feminine. To highlight, I used Danessa Myricks Enlight in shade Confidence. I contoured using Cozzette S145 Perfect Contour Brush and used Cozzette Infinite Contour Palette was used to sculpt cheekbones. I kept eyes simple using Glossier Lidstar in Fawn—it applies wet and dries with a pop effect. It appears almost as if eyelids are slightly wet looking. I used KISS Beauty Lashes in Pixie—these lashes are perfect for a sexy and soft look. I placed them close to the lash line then created a thin line using KISS High Precision Eyeliner so eyes were defined. I always marry faux lashes and real lashes with KISS Mascara in Black. On lips, I used MAC Lip Liner in CorkLip Bar Liquid Matte in Savage and Drama Queen."
