There’s no getting away from it – the Easter holidays are expensive. If you need to watch your finances, but are in need of a makeup haul, don’t despair. You can grab yourself any of the following products for under £10. Before you worry about quality, these items are so good you will be scratching your head in disbelief!
1.For Foundation Choose: e.l.f. Cosmetics Acne Fighting Foundation, £7.50, www.elfcosmetics.co.uk
Including amazing ingredients such as salicylic acid, witch-hazel, camphor, tea tree and calming aloe vera, this vegan-friendly formula offers everything your skin needs to effectively banish acne and blemishes, whilst ensuring your skin is nourished and soothed. Expect even looking skin tone, reduced blemishes and redness – and a beautiful complexion!
2.For Eyeshadow Choose: Collection Eye Uncovered Palette In Nude Rose, £3.99, www.superdrug.com
You could spend your week’s lunch money on a Dior or MAC eyeshadow set, but this is a great alternative if you are feeling the pinch. The palette offers 6 good quality, highly pigmented popular shades (including the ones I use on most days). You will be amazed at how soft, easy-to-blend and workable these eyeshadows are. Furthermore, they are super long-lasting. The only thing you will be wondering is where your head was when you paid £35 for eyeshadow last month!
3.For Lipstick Try: Sleek Makeup Matte Me Liquid Lip, £4.99 (6ml), www.sleekmakeup.com
I adore this lipstick – so much so, that I have been using the Birthday Suit shade almost every day for the past month. Available in 18 shades, this matte finish lipstick glides on seamlessly, is not too overpowering and stays on for the duration. Amazing for the price!
4.For Mascara Choose: Aqua Lash Mascara, £2.50, www.primark.com
This mascara would win in a Pepsi challenge against some of the most high-end mascaras around. Providing volume and length without clumping, this is one product that’s seriously worth a trip to Primark. I can’t get my head around the fact it is £2.50!
5.For Concealer Choose: Nyx Can’t Stop Concealer Neutral Buff, £6.80, www.superdrug.com.
Check out this awesome contour concealer by NYX. Incredible for hiding imperfections, brightening and contouring, this all-in-one lightweight product is available in 24 shades; thus, ensuring the provision of perfect coverage that lasts throughout the day and into the evening. Definitely a must-have concealer.
6.For Bronzer Try: e.l.f. Cosmetics Bronzer, £5, www.elfcosmetics.co.uk
It’s no secret I think e.l.f. Cosmetics is fabulous. This vegan-friendly and cruelty-free brand never skimp on quality and you’d be forgiven for thinking you were using a luxe product when you try their range. The brand’s compact 4-in-1 golden bronzing palette achieves a natural, subtle, yet incredibly gorgeous “I’ve just returned from the best holiday ever” glow.
