Make up Basics on a Budget

Now, don’t get me wrong I personally spend ALOT on makeup. Like more than I should for a student who wants to learn to drive. However, I know a lot of people either; can’t spend that much on makeup or are unwilling to spend that much money. Both valid reasons. So I’ve come up with a small list of what I think to be good make up products to use for a full face.

1. Primer 

New York baby skin instant pore eraser, Maybelline 

£7.99 (boots)/$6.99 (ulta)

2. Foundation 

Fit me, maybelline

The matte “fit me” foundation (£5.99) is the only one I can in the UK the other is just called “fit me” which is, £7.99 (boots)

Dewy finish $7.99 (ulta)

Matte finish $7.99 (ulta)

3. Concealer 

Collection lasting perfection 

The first concealer I purchased, still my favourite. £3.99 (boots)

HD Pro concealer, L.A. Girl 

£5.00 (beauty bay)/$4.99 (ulta)

4. Powder

Stay matte, Rimmel London 

packaging varies as they’ve recently re-designed.

£3.99 (boots)/$4.99 (ulta)

5. Contour (and highlight)

Collection contour kit

£3.99 (boots)

I’m so sorry, I don’t know of a dupe for this that’s sold elsewear aside from the UK!!

6. Mascara

Lash sensational lash multiplying mascara, Maybelline

This is a good dupe for roller lashes by benefit. Again packaging varies due to colour differences (such as black, brown, blackest black etc) and if it’s waterproof. £7.99 (boots)/ $8.99 (ulta)

Upon purchasing these products you now have the basics to start plunging into the world of eye shadow and lipstick.
