But when you're broke AF, you need to curb your cosmetics budget. Makeup dupes can help.

As a refresher, dupes are cheaper products that are comparable to a more expensive, often higher quality products. They're usually similar in color and/or consistency. While the higher-end products typically last longer and have more impressive benefits, dupes are nothing to scoff at.
