As editors who have tested practically every beauty product under the sun, we’re here to tell you that you don’t always have to spend a fortune to find the best in beauty, even when you’re in wedding beauty prep mode. There are tons of little gems that work really well without an exorbitant price tag. And these Amazon beauty products under $20 are proof!

While we love to go to Sephora to get our staples, Amazon is a great place to find new, cool, and lesser expensive items because they carry so many different brands—even some that us beauty editors have never heard of—so you can discover great lines that are original and effective. In the spirit of branching out (and wanting to find the good stuff that doesn’t cost too much money, because you have a wedding to plan, after all) we rounded up 20 great beauty products on Amazon under $20.
