Kim Kardashian’s $2K Makeup Routine Under $200

At only $1.83 per pack, this is the only product in Kim's makeup routine that I can justify. Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes $2, available here.
This gel cleanser works just as well as Kim's preferred brand, and is almost half the cost. Bliss Fabulous Makeup Melt $28, available here.
Guerlain's cream saw a 55% increase in radiance, but clinical trials found a 91% increase with this moisturizer. Algenist Multi-Perfecting Moisturizer $65, available here.
This Vitamin-infused face cream is a cheaper, more natural dupe of the NaturaBissē C+C Vitamin Cream. Avalon Organics Age-less Revitalizing Cream $10, available here.
Can't justify spending $155 on body cream? Try Aveeno's body lotion that has the same firming properties with Shiitake Mushroom Complex. Aveeno Positively Ageless $10, Firming Body Lotion, available here.
A rose is a rose whether it's from Damascus or Bulgaria. This Damascus Rose Oil also has lavender and chamomile to soothe your skin, and the packaging is cuter. Badger Damascus Rose Face Oil $16, buy here.
This sunscreen stick is portable, easy to use, and has SPF 70. It's also just as lightweight and hydrating as La Mer's version. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face & Body Stick $11, available here.
Rated number 7 across the board in a list of best sunscreens by Total Beauty, this lightweight sunscreen is friendly to your face while still protecting it. Kiss My Face SPF 30 $11, available here.
There have been many dupes for this coveted Armani foundation, but L'Oreal is the tested and true favorite. L'Oreal True Match Luminous Foundation $13, available here.
Rimmel's 9-in-1 BB Cream foundation is one of the highest user rated foundations on the market. It's even won an Oprah award. Rimmel Perfection BB Cream Matte $7, available here.
Kim was smart in taking this opportunity to plug her own makeup line, but drugstore bronzers work just fine. Maybelline Fit Me! Bronzer $4, available here.
$40 for a contouring kit is reasonable, but we're on a budget so opt for this color correcting NYX palette instead. NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette $12, available here.
This mascara has a better overall rating then Kim's choice, and is my personal favorite drugstore mascara. CoverGirl Lashblast Mascara $6, available here.
These eyelashes have a 4 star review and only cost $1.83 for a pack of 10. Soft False Eyelashes $2, available here.

Kim Kardashian gave up all of her best kept beauty secrets this week, and in addition to not washing her hair for five days the star also revealed that it’ll cost you about $2K to get her face. While $2K might be a reasonable price tag for someone with a net worth of $65 million, many of us aren’t so fortunate.
