Top five affordable beauty favourites
THESE make-up picks are at the top of the drugstore bunch and have my seal of approval. Here’s my top five I would recommend for a fraction of the price.
Maybelline Fit Me matte and poreless powder: I’m not a huge fan of pressed powders, but I don’t go anywhere without this in my handbag.
This super impressive product is a pressed powder and comes in 24 shades. This reduces the look of pores and really does give your skin an airbrushed finish. It blurs imperfections as well as mattifies the skin. If you are just using this as a pressed powder over foundation, then I would buy the translucent shade as it won’t alter the skin tone.
For best results use with a powder puff and watch those pores magically disappear. Priced at £6.99.
L’Oréal Paris True Match liquid foundation with hyaluronic acid: Achieve a flawless complexion with L’Oreal True Match foundation that provides a natural true to skin like finish. This product is infused with hyaluronic acid and this formula provides up to 24 hours of hydration. This foundation has a great shade range perfect for all skin tones, and with 48 shades to choose from it’s all the skincare goodness you need for just £7.99.
Makeup Revolution London awesome eyeliner – felt and kohl: This is the perfect duo for creating dramatic eye looks. This dual ended eyeliner allows you to create precision for a winged liner look, and a sultry eye using the kohl. I particularly love using the kohl as it’s easy to blend, waterproof and has great staying power on the eyelids. Bargain price of just £3.50.
Maybelline instant age rewind eraser: Say goodbye to dark circles and see how this concealer diminishes them. The multi-use concealer is perfect for all skin tones and types. When applying this product under the eyes it instantly brightens, hydrates, colour corrects and gives you the coverage you need without creasing. The sponge applicator is super handy if you are using this product to contour and highlight. This is a gem of a product, price pointed at £8.99.
NYX slim lip pencil: Discover the best budget friendly lip liner with the NYX lip pencil. I would highly recommend this as an alternative to the MAC lip liners. They glide on so easily. It is long wearing and most importantly bleed resistant. You can’t go wrong for only £4.
