I've made a compilation of products that everyone can benefit from. These products aren't just great in quality but they are all very affordable. Lately, I've been using the most pocket friendly products that are of superb quality. I've been saving up for some things and there is little room for expensive makeup at the moment. Also, the economy is BAD! Things just keep getting worse. The exchange rates aren't even moving towards a positive direction and therefore, products are now really expensive.
Here is a list of recommended products that you would definitely get your moneys worth.
The best primers are actually really expensive but in my bid to find a reasonable face primer that does a decent job, I discovered the Rimmel Stay Matte primer which I reviewed HERE

The really affordable foundations I usually use have become a little bit pricey. Its not very serious but compared to what they used to go for before the economic recession, its still a bit expensive. In my opinion, its better to get a great foundation because I've tried the really cheap ones and they are just not worth it. I recommend the Revlon colorstay (for oily skin) see review HERE and  Milani 2 in 1 perfect & conceal (for dry skin) see my review of it HERE

Every one knows that the L.A girl pro concealers are bae. They're even better than some concealers worth 10 times their usual price. Don't sleep on this girls, you don't see a great N1000 concealer everyday.

I just discovered the perfect finishing (brown) powder! Its so exciting to get a good powder because I couldn't afford to spend N13,000 on my usual Mac powder which is now twice its normal price. My new favorite powder is the Black opal deluxe finishing powder. I gave a detailed review of it HERE.

Honestly, my favorite brow product is the ABH dipbrow pomade but not a lot of people can afford it. I've used the Hegai & Esther brow gel several times and it performs wonderfully well! See my review of the product HERE

Highlighters are really expensive but the one in the Sleek face contour kit is really nice. I use it a lot more than I thought I would and I love it! Best part? It's comes with a contour powder so you're basically using two stones to kill one bird

I love my beauty blender sponge but its a tad too expensive. Try using the Real techniques miracle complexion sponge and watch your blending game sky rocket. In other words, save money and still get the same result! 

The setting sprays that actually work in my opinion are really pricey. But your girl discovered the Ben nye final seal setting spray and this baby works harder than a brick layer. See my review of it HERE

Sleek face contour kit has always had a soft spot in my heart. Especially for the fact that it is so easily accessible. I also recently started using the Cover girl queen bronzer and I love it! See the review HERE

I will forever and always preach the gospel of the Sleek blushes (they're really pigmented and affordable). If you are in need of a blush palette, the BH cosmetics glamorous blush palette is your guy (see review HERE)

Every one knows the Maybelline the colossal mascaras are the bomb! You can get the normal one or the water proof one. Be careful though, make sure you buy from a reliable seller because I've spotted a few fakes.

Red cherry lashes, Stardell lashes and Ardell lashes are my favorites. Best part is that you can use them up to 10 times! 

I fell in love with the Makeup revolution eyeshadows a long time ago and I still find myself reaching for it! They have different palettes. See my review of one of their palettes HERE

In my opinion, the Maybelline baby lips  is presently the best lip balm ever! See my review of it HERE to know why. Best part? It costs between N800-N1000

I proudly preach the gospel of the LA girl lip pencils. They are really cheap and in my opinion, they work so much better than some of the most expensive ones I've ever used. Don't sleep on these liners people. I've seen them go for N600-N800

Taos cosmetics liquid lipsticks are bae! It's a Nigerian brand so I'm excited about the quality. I don't need to say a lot now but you need to see my review and swatches of them HERE
