I get asked quite a bit about what make up I’m wearing in instagram posts etc. (follow me here if you’re not already!!) and I do tend to wear a lot of high end makeup but some of my staple everyday products are all high street which are obviously much cheaper and easier to get a hold of, so I thought I’d give you a run down of all my favourite high street and drugstore picks!
Primer- Next – Face Illuminator
I love to have an illuminator under my foundation as I suffer with dry skin and this one gives a gorgeous ‘glow from within’ effect.
Foundation – L’Oreal Infallible Sculpt Foundation – Light – £8.99
Although there are only two shades of this foundation, this colour is actually a perfect match for me which is lucky! I really like the consistency of this, it’s got a good coverage without being too heavy and it actually lasts for a long time on my nose whereas other foundations come off so easily!
Concealer – Bourjois Radiance Reveal – 01 Ivory – £7.99
This shade is brilliant for brightening underneath my eyes, it’s very easy to blend and it isn’t matte which I prefer.
Powder – Revlon Photoready Powder – 010 Fair/Light – £11.29
I don’t use a lot of powder during the summer months because I embrace the ‘glow’ but when I do I always use this one; it’s really light and doesn’t feel like it’s clogging up my face but gives a flawless effect.
Contour – Makeup Revolution Iconic Lights & Contour Palette -£8.00
If there is one drug store product I’d recommend it would be this contour palette from Makeup Revolution, as you can probably tell due to the state of it..!! I blend all 4 of the contour shades together and use sparingly because they’re very pigmented! It’s also a great palette for travel because it has under eye powders and two high light powders which are so pretty too.
Blusher – H&M – Sunrise Pink – £6.99
H&M have some amazing make up but one of the stand out products is their blusher, it blends well and they have a huge amount of shades to suit every skin tone.
Highlighter – Sleek – Solstice – £9.99
Highlighter has to be one of my favourite make up products to buy and use! I usually use high end high lighters much more than high street but after re-discovering this, I have to say that it’s incredible! I use the powder shades much more often than the one creamy shade and I love them.
Eyebrows – Maybelline Masterbrow Pro Palette – Deep Brown – £6.99
I have this eye brow palette in my make up bag constantly and it’s brilliant for the price. I don’t use the brush that comes with it as it’s too tiny!
Eyeshadow – Makeup Revolution – Fortune Favours the Brave – £9.99
I have reviewed this eyeshadow palette on my blog before and the range of shades, pigmentation and blend ability of the eye shadows makes this an easy recommendation!
Eyeliner – Soap and Glory Smoulder Kohl – Super Black – £5.00
I get very watery eyes and this water proof eye liner stays on no matter what!
Mascara – Maybelline Lash Sensational -£7.99
This is my go to drug store mascara, it is really black and makes my lashes look beautifully fanned out and dramatic.
Lip Liner – New Look Pure Colour – £1.99
I just cannot get over how cheap this lip liner is! It glides on so easily and stays put for a long time, it’s incredible for the price.
Lipstick – Topshop -£8.00
I have so many lipsticks from Topshop and I love them all too much I couldn’t pick a favourite! They range from matte to satin and even the matte lipsticks are creamy and comfortable to wear.
Setting Spray – Avon – £6.00
I love this setting spray so much; not only does it keep my make up in place but it also refreshes my skin and keeps my make up looking just as good as it did when I first put it on!
