Candace Gusman wants her makeup to stay current without spending

Marcus says if you want to save money, the keys are using fewer steps in your daily routine and using a little bit of color.

First, instead of using liquid foundation, switch to powder.

"It will even out skin tone without having too many steps," he said.

Instead of using lipstick and lip liner which could cost you $50, Marcus says just use a highly-pigmented lip gloss which might only cost you $15 to $30.

"A beautiful, bright pop of color without having to do six different steps," he said.

On the eyes, start with a cake eyeliner using a flat brush along the lash line.
