I’m not really one for spending a fortune on high-end makeup products. For me they are a luxury. So here are some of the less expensive products that I find to be just as good.
Seventeen ‘Easy on the Eye’ Eyeshadow Palette
(DISCONTINUED, another Easy on the Eye palette linked)
I was very late to the whole eyeshadow thing and I literally only just started wearing it. I’m not great at fancy makeup application so I just avoided it for years thinking I wouldn’t be able to do it. When I finally decided to give it a go, I found this MUA palette in ‘Birthday Suit’ which had really natural shades so was perfect for me when just starting out. I love these shades and they’re great for a more natural look, or those just starting in the eyeshadow game!
Rimmel Extra 3D Lash Mascara
This is one of my favourite mascaras. I use this every single day and wouldn’t use anything else. It costs about £5.99 which in comparison to other mascaras is sooo cheap and it does exactly what I need it to.
MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Brow Kit
Again, I was so late to the brow obsession. Everyone is so crazy for good brows?! So when I first started on my eyebrows I wanted something inexpensive and easy to apply, just in case it turned out to not work for me at all. This brow kit was exactly what I needed – easy to use and not at all pricey. Perfect.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate
I have this lipstick in shade 03 which for me is the perfect nude. It’s the perfect colour for both night and day and it goes with literally every outfit so it is my go-to shade. It also smells sooo good.
No7 Perfectly Bronzed Bronzing Pearls
I don’t know what I can really say about bronzing balls… They bronze my skin nicely and don’t cost a bomb.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation
This is my every day foundation and I don’t see the need to change it. It gives me exactly what I need and at just £8 you can’t go wrong. This gives me the coverage I want whilst not being too heavy and it really is lasting.
No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick
I love these lipsticks and have two shades currently: Soft Earth and Sugar Plum. I love the variety of shades available and the lipstick is quite creamy.
New Look Pure Colour Matte Lipstick
I was a bit apprehensive when I first found out about New Look’s beauty range but I decided to give it a go with their matte lipstick in Candy Pink. The shade is very feminine and I was really surprised at how matte and long-lasting the lipstick actually was.
New Look Pure Colour Lipliner Pencil
Why pay loads for a lipliner when you can get exactly the same from New Look for just £2?
