Affordable makeup must-haves

So I am pretty sure that everyone out there loves a good bargain. The affordable/drugstore makeup has really stepped up their game these days. I remember when eyeshadows were crap and you had to buy from the likes of MAC and Urban Decay in order to get a shadow that lasted. These obviously cost alot more than your Essence or Sleek counters in your local chemist. Here are some products I feel you can save your money on.

1. Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes. €12

These are fab wee eyeshadows for the price. They are pigmented and wear fab on the eyes.

2. Sleek blushes. €6

These are comparable to any highend blush in my opinion. These are so creamy and pigmented, they look fab on the cheeks and the colour pay off is next to none.

3. Drugstore mascara. €8-€15

This is one area that you most certainly do not have to break the bank. In-fact some of my favourite mascara's are affordable. There are so many to choose from and you will for sure find one that is right for you. Do not splurge here.

4. L'oreal true match.€15

This foundation is fab. I love love it. My favourite is the Lumi version of this. The L'oreal Lumi foundation is supposed to a dupe for the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. I watched a Youtube Video of Laura Lee. She used these foundations side by side and they had the exact same coverage and result. So save your money here ladies. A fab everyday foundation that doesn't break the bank. If you Like a Matte, full coverage foundation then this is not for you.

5. Rimmel Stay matte Powder. €6

What a gem this bad boy is. It keeps oils at bay. Its cheap and it comes in 4 different shades. What is not to like here?

6. Nyx and L'oreal Lipsticks. €8-€11

These are fab wee lippies. They are affordable and do the same job. We are reapplying lipsticks all the time anyway and these are a great alternative to the more expensive counterparts.

7. Lip Liners by NYX. €7

These are as good as mac Lip liners. I mean that. They have the same lasting power and everything. Pennys Lip liners are fab to! Just like mascaras this is a place we you can save your mula.

8. Rimmel nude eyeliner. €5

This is one of the best nude eyeliners I have tried and it is wallet friendly. Go get one now.

9. Sleek Highlighter. Solstice. €13

I love this palette so much that I did a full blogpost in it here. This is INTENSE and as Lynda from Lynda loves makeup on FB says. This is not for the faint hearted. You will be glowing from the heavens with this palette.

 I hope this helps when you are shopping next. I will have a blogpost tomorrow on my highend must haves. xxx
