When it comes to doing my makeup, I'm all about playing up my eyes. Whenever I'm seriously looking to doll myself up, I automatically reach over for a rich shadow rather than a bright, bold lipstick. But it's not always easy for me to cough $25 or more on a good eye shadow, especially when I know it's not something I'm going to use on a daily basis. Luckily there are a ton of affordable choices out there that won't require you to pay more than 10 bucks. And if you're REALLY lucky you can find a huge palette for that  price. That's a pretty good deal, right? So if you're looking to beef up your makeup collection with some new, shimmery shadows check out a few of these cheap babies--all under $10!
