Budget Makeup

July 14, 2017

We all know that we don't always have the money to splash out on makeup, and not all of our makeup HAS to be expensive to be a good product worthy of the makeup bag.

 

Here are a few amazing makeup products that I have tested (I would never recommend a product I haven't personally worn or tested) and know are great budget products and easily accessible at highstreet shops. 

 

All the recommended products will have a link to make it easier for you lovelies to go straight to and check out..... just click on the name of the product.

 

1. Primer

Rimmel London - Lasting Finish Primer - £6.99

 

 

 This primer is a great budget buy! I will always tell my clients when they ask what to spend the most money on and that is primer! But, as a budget item this primer is AMAZING! It is aclear creamy liquid which has a gorgeous sheer finish, ensures makeup stays in place all day and really locks the moisture in. £6.99 ladies, you can't grumble!

2.  Foundation

B. Foundation Silk - £9.99

 

 

 

I really do love this foundation and I do wear this on a regular basis. I mix it with the B.Cassie Lomas Illuminator and it gives such a sheer, full coverage, glowy look. Also Vegan friendly!!

3.Illuminator  

B. Illuminator - £9.99

 

 

 

This can be used before your makeup as a base, mixed in with your foundation or used in specific areas to make them glow after applying foundation! I love this and use it on a daily basis, wouldn't be without now!

4. Contouring

B. Contour Stick - £8.99

 

 

Isn't this just the easiest way to contour? with a cream stick? YES! Absolutely perfect! So easy to use and also it's double ended ladies, it's also a highlighter too! Multi-use - Love it!

5. Concealer

 Younique - £21

 

Now this isn't a budget priced concealer initially...but...for how much you use and how long it lasts it's actually cheaper than getting any concealer off the highstreet in my opinion. The coverage is insane! Anyone else who has tried/uses this concealer i'm sure will agree, it's unbeatable. Perfect for covering spots, blemishes, redness, tired eyes, scars, tattoos etc. The tiny little tube lasts me around 1 year -YES 1 YEAR! So this is a budget item for me. 

 

6. Highlighter

Freedom palette - £6

 

I bought this beauty about 2 weeks back and absolutely love it! What a great price and you get 8 different highlighters, perfect for all looks. There's the rosey highlights, the iced white highlight and the gorgeous sunkissed glow highlight.

10. Lipliner

Rimmel - Exaggerate - £3.99

 

 

 

 

I am very fussy when it comes to lipliners, I don't like the pencil liners as I don't like to feel i'm writing on my lips with a pencil. I love the creamy glideable liners, and the Exaggerate collection is gorgeous, the colours are stunning and the texture of the lipliner is so soft and creamy. PERFECT!

11. Lipgloss

Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Set - £6.00 includes liner

 

 

I am a huge fan on these lovely sets at the minute, especially the metallic bronzed gold set. Great for those sunkissed looks this summer! They do a mixture in the sets with liquid lipstick and glosses but for liner and gloss for £6.00 - can't complain!

These butter glosses do exactly what it says on the tin, they just melt on your lips! Gorgeous texture of gloss! SO many colours to choose from!

Another NYX lippy product, they're just beautiful, amazing colours, amazing textures and long lasting. What more could you ask for? 

 

 

 

 

13. Liquid Lipstick

Bodyshop - £6

 

 

These are FAB! Gorgeous creamy texture and have a gorgeous smell to them too. The applicator is great allowing the liquid lip to just glide on! Amazing price and the colours are very similar to the Kylie colours.

15.Mascara

Code VLM - £10

 

 

I was sent this new VLM mascara to test and review and I absolutely love it, my lashes really did double in volume and length! Deffo one for the makeup bag! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

16. Eyelashes

Ardell - Demi Wispies - £5.99

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This style is great for all eyes and all occassions. Ever put lashes on and they won't stay on? Well the chances are, they need to be cut down to fit your eye. We all have different sized eyes it's not one size fits all in this case!
