You don’t always have to spend a lot of moolah on mascara, or break out the big bucks for blush. Sandy Linter, Lancome makeup artist and co-author of "Beauty at Every Age," offers MORE.com some of her favorite drugstore steals and deals.
Linter offers the following tips for drusgtore foundation shopping (where testing isn't usually an option):
