Since my last post ( http://natalieleanne.com/great-skincare-that-doesnt-break-the-bank/ )went down so well, I wanted to do a makeup version of it sharing all my budget buys in the beauty department.
PRIMER- L’OREAL LUMI MAGIQUE
Truth be told, I haven’t tried that many primers in the drugstore, so I’m a little biased in this area. I love this one because it makes your skin look lit from within, and isn’t greasy. It just gives a nice glow, and I always find that makeup goes on SO smoothly afterwards.
CONCEALER- BOURJOIS RADIANCE REVEAL
A few months ago I picked up the more ‘matte’ version of this concealer, but now I’m fully back on this lighter, brightening choice. It honestly makes you look like you’ve had so much more sleep than you actually have, and it lasts for ages too. Plus, it also blends in dreamily and doesn’t crease around my eye area at all.
FOUNDATIONS- BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX + L’OREAL CUSHION FOUNDATION
These are definitely my favourite two affordable foundations, and both offer that healthy natural looking glow. They are light to medium coverage, but don’t look cakey on the skin at all. I will most definitely be repurchasing both when I’ve used them all up!
BLUSH- RIMMEL IN ‘SANTA ROSE’ + MAX FACTOR PUFF BLUSH IN ‘LOVELY PINK’
The Rimmel blushes are such a good price (£4) and they last for ages. The one I have is called ‘santa rose’ in a lovely pretty blush colour. These are so underrated in the beauty world and I rarely hear about people mentioning them. I also adore the Max Factor puff blushes (there are some gorgeous colours in this range!) and they last for a really long time too. I can’t believe mine is still going after the amount of use its had.
This is the only contour palette that I’ve used from the drugstore, but its very well loved in my collection. I have the light version and find the shades to be perfect for my skin tone, especially with the darker contour not looking ‘mucky’ as they sometimes do in these palettes. I feel like this is something that I’ve really enjoyed having, and it also has a great mirror in too if you want to take it on holiday or going away.
MAYBELLINE PUSH UP ANGEL MASCARA
I won’t harp on about it, we all know this is my FAVE mascara ever. It makes you look like you have eyelash extensions, and doesn’t go clumpy. So much so, I’ve run out of it now and going to repurchase another! See you at Boots… 😉
Do you have any affordable makeup favourites? Let me know- I feel in a spendy mood for some new beauty bits!
