Q: DO YOU RE­ALLY NEED TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY ON GOOD MAKE-UP?

No. 1 Magazine - - HEALTHY & BEAUTY -

There are so many great brands on the high street now that you don’t ac­tu­ally need to splash out for qual­ity on most prod­ucts. The best ad­vice is to save the ma­jor­ity of your bud­get to splurge on good base items, ie. a good foun­da­tion, con­cealer and face pow­der – this is where you of­ten do get what you pay for. But when it comes to colour cos­met­ics like lip­stick, blusher and eye make-up there are tons of op­tions at low price points. Some of my favourite af­ford­able colour brands are:

NYX:

They have so many great shades, but I adore the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (as men­tioned in the au­tumn swaps), Rome is my go-to for day­time, give it a try.

L’oréal:

L’oréal’s primers work re­ally well yet are very af­ford­able. But spe­cial men­tion needs to go to the mas­cara se­lec­tion which is great. False Lash Tele­scopic Mas­cara is the best of the bunch if you’re look­ing for se­ri­ous length. Their nail var­nishes per­form bet­ter than Chanel in my opin­ion, es­pe­cially when you fin­ish off with the Di­a­mond Top Coat. Rim­mel 60 Sec­onds Su­per Shine is also cheap as chips and is good if you need to do your nails in a hurry, Caramel Cup­cake is a great low main­te­nance day-to-day shade.

Bour­jois:

Their blushes have al­ways been pop­u­lar and for good rea­son, the for­mu­la­tion is good and one lit­tle pot lasts ages.

Sleek:

The liq­uid lip­stick range is fab but the stand out from this range is their eye­shadow pal­ettes, great colour se­lec­tion at an amaz­ing price point.

Rim­mel 60 Sec­ond Shine in Caramel Cup­cake £2.99 Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Di­a­mond Top Coat™ £7.99

Bour­jois Lit­tle Round Pot in Rose D’or £7.99

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome £6
