Chloë Grace Moretz Never Spends More Than $18 on Makeup—Except for This

Wise beyond her 21 years, Chloë Grace Moretz has a wealth of bold opinions to offer on beauty, confidence, career, and plenty of other topics we like to discuss here on Byrdie. Earlier this month, we published an exclusive interview with the actress—who is now starring in the must-see indie film The Miseducation of Cameron Post—in which she spoke about everything from where she got her feminism to why her eyebrows are so good to sexism in Hollywood and in her dating life. But what we didn't get the chance to publish was the part of our conversation in which we talked about her makeup routine.

Moretz has opened up to us before about her skincare regimen (she's one of the faces of SK-II and mostly uses of its exquisite products). She wasn't wearing a stitch of makeup when I interviewed her, so I know her natural skin and brows are incredible. But I was also curious to learn about what she uses when she does paint her face. As it turns out, Moretz's makeup vibe is refreshingly attainable. All her favorite products are under $18 (except for two key items).
