Ask The Makeup Diva
Welcome to Ask The Makeup Diva™! Our resident expert, The Makeup Diva, answers makeup and skin care questions sent in by readers just like you.

Q: I hate paying $20 for mascara that's just average, especially since I'm supposed to throw it away in three months. Can you recommend any cheaper alternatives that do a good job?

A: Boy, have you come to the right place! I have a really hard time justifying spending that kind of money, too, because there are so many great choices in the $3-$10 range.

Drugstores are the perfect place to find just the mascara you are looking for. If you want something to build up your lashes and make them look thicker, try Rimmel Extra Super Lash (at Wal-Mart), L'Oreal Voluminous and Maybelline Volum' Express are just as good or better than the expensive department store brands.

If you want your lashes to look longer, L'Oreal Longitude Lash Out, Almay Amazing Lash and Neutrogena Full Length Defining are definitely ones to look for.

For natural looking lashes, L'Oreal FeatherLash, Maybelline Lash Discovery and Almay The Insider are all excellent choices.

Try just one of these and you'll agree - $8 every 3 months is much more attractive than $25!
