Best Drugstore Beauty Products

It may have been a virtual event this year, but last night's Golden Globe Awards were still full of glamorous beauty moments. Celebrities gathered from home to celebrate some of the best in film and television, and even though most were in their living rooms, they pulled out all the stops. While we might not be looking for our own designer gowns any time soon, we did take note of all the affordable beauty products celebrities were wearing.

We love taking inspiration from red carpet looks, but rarely do we think it to be the best place to score relatable product recommendations. However, these finds are all under $30. In fact, most are under $15. So regardless of who the awards went to last night, it feels like our wallets are the true winners of the Golden Globes.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite drugstore products — from nail polish to skin serum — that we spotted at last night's ceremony.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

The Star: Sarah Hyland

E.l.f Cosmetics Eyeshadow

This pigment-packed eyeshadow quad packs a refreshing punch with its combination of minty and chocolatey neutral hues. Hyland's makeup artist, Allan Avendaño, layered the tones together to create a multi-dimensional shadow movement that would pop against the star's red dress (and hair).

The Star: Jane Fonda

L’Oreal Paris Elvive Dry Shampoo

Where would we be without Jane Fonda? And where would we be without a good dry shampoo? The icon's stylist, Jonathan Hanousek, used the L'Oreal Paris Elvive Dry Shampoo to deliver the kind of plumped volume that's key for any glamorous style.

The Star: Elle Fanning

L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Serum

If you're looking for plump, moisturized skin to get your makeup off to the right start, hyaluronic acid, like this 1.5 percent serum, is a godsend. Fanning's makeup artist, Erin Ayanian Monroe, used it as the first step to her glam.

L’Oreal Air Volume Mascara

For Fanning’s makeup look, she went for classic Hollywood glam which of course involves doll-like, voluminous eyelashes. This particular formula promises all the fullness without the heavy-lash feeling.

The Star: Sofia Carson

Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum

To create Carson's sleek updo, her stylist, Caile Noble, used this serum as they pulled back her hair to not only introduce a bit of hold to the style, but get rid of any flyaways.

The Star: Sarah Paulson

OPI Nail Polish in The Beige Of Reason

While her Prada-branded cast may have taken center stage at last night's Golden Globes, Paulson's manicure reminds us of the power of a good, neutral beige polish. Her manicurist, Emi Kudo, proves that truly goes with every outfit.

The Star: Viola Davis

L’Oreal Age Perfect Radiant Concealer

To create a bright and radiant complexion on Davis, makeup artist Autumn Moultrie picked a concealer formulated with hydrating serum and glycerin. Not only does it leave the skin covered and hydrated, but it won't settle into lines as the day (or late-night award show) goes on.
