Everyone loves a bargain and over the years I have accumulated a ridiculous amount of makeup from the drugstore, but here’s a list of the products that I pretty much use on a daily basis and have earned a staple spot in my ‘beauti-bag’.
NYX Shine Killer Primer (£9): Perfect for my oily skin. I find this works extremely well with my Maybelline Fit Me foundation!
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (£3.99): I have used this to set my foundation since I first started wearing makeup and it has never failed me!
Maybelline Fit Me Matte Poreless Foundation (£5.99): This is my go to foundation at the minute, I use it regularly – it’s so buildable and helps combat my oily skin during the day!
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer (£7.99): My absolute favourite under eye concealer – has great coverage, doesn’t crease quickly once set, and doesn’t break the bank!
Maybelline Gel Liner (£7.99): It doesn’t transfer, it’s jet black and it’s matte – for £7.99, what more could you want?
Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Eyeshadow Flawless Palette (£8): The shades in this palette can be hit and miss, particularly the matte shades. However, I always find myself reaching for the shimmer shades because these do not disappoint!
L’Oreal False Lash Sculpt Mascara (£9.99): This mascara sits right behind my Benefit Roller Lash! It accentuates the length of my lashes significantly, so if longer lashes is something you look for in a mascara – this is ideal.
Revolution Baked Highlighter (£3) – Golden Lights: According to YouTube, this is a dupe for NARS Albatross? Either way, it’s such a nice highlighter! Although it looks white in it’s packaging, it’s actually a bold yellow-gold colour, so I normally wear it on a night out. But if bold highlighters are your thing, this is definitely worth a try!
NYX Lip Lingerie (£6.50): Bedtime Flirt, Ruffle Trim and Exotic; these three are my absolute favourites and the former two are supposedly dupes for Kylie Cosmetics Candy K and Ginger. They also have a new formula which is so much better than before because it’s now longer wearing and very hydrating!
NYX Micro Brow Pencil (£7): I use this mostly everyday with my ABH Dip Brow Pomade! Because it’s a micro brow pencil, it’s great for really defining your brows.
Maybelline Brow-drama Sculpting Mascara (£4.99) – Transparent: I find this brow mascara great for setting my brows, it’s a cheaper alternative to ABH brow gel and Benefit Gimme Brow!
Soap & Glory Solar Powder (£11): Just like the Rimmel powder, I’ve used this for years! Because I’m quite pale, I find it great for subtle bronzing and warming up the face.
The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipstick (£13.50) – Committed: One of the pricer drugstore brands, but one of my absolute go to’s! No doubt my favourite smelling liquid lipstick (smells like mint chocolate), it’s hydrating and long lasting!
