Arguably the chicest week of the year in New York City is fashion week (which technically spans more than a week and comes twice a year, but I digress). All around the backstage area of a show, you'll see models ushering from station to station, camera bulbs flashing away, racks of chic and never-before-seen designer clothing, and the occasional celebrity. But amid all the glitz, glam, and seemingly unattainable aspects of fashion week are some welcomed attainability: drugstore beauty products.

It's true: High-fashion brands like Jason Wu and Opening Ceremony enlist the help of Maybelline products to create their runway beauty looks, and affordable haircare brands like Tresemmé and Tigi dress up the models' strands at a number of shows. Alas—we may not be able to afford the designer clothes on the runway, but surely we can scrounge up our dollars to re-create the models' makeup.

Below you'll find the drugstore beauty products used on the runway this season. Are you ready?
