Since becoming full time freelance, my favourite thing has been trialling and testing all makeup brands, from high street to prestige brands. I adore big brands like Charlotte Tilbury, Mac and Nars, but my all time favourite thing is finding an incredible product at an even better price
Here are my top 5 must have bargain buys:
1. Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm
This product is like a Strobe cream dupe but with a peachier warm tone. It gives a beautiful glow to then skin and is amazing under or mixed in with foundation.
It is a steal at €9.99 in Boots, and usually it is on offer for 1/3 off.
2. Botanics All Bright Soothing Eye Makeup Remover
This is THE BEST eye makeup remover!!!!! (in my opinion). It is oil based, removes all traces of mascara and eye makeup, even waterproof mascara. It is a bargain at €6.99 and is also available in Boots, can also be in 3 for 2 offers.
3. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
I have been wearing this foundation for a few weeks and have fallen in love with this product. It gives a medium coverage, and a semi matte finish. It feels super light on the skin and has a serum like consistency. Its perfect for every day wear, especially at €13.99.
4. Penneys Individual Lashes
I generally stock up on these everytime I go in to Penneys, hence the 3 sets. These lashes are not as annoying as individuals, as they are clusters of 3 on a lil teeny tiny strip. I use these for alot of my clients including brides. I adore using them on myself, as it is super easy to apply and you can keep them quite natural. I always use Duo glue with these and not the glue in the pack.
5. NYX Butter Gloss
These glosses are my all time favourite glosses to wear. Super creamy formula, they feel amazing and keep lips moisturised. I hate that sticky gloss feeling, so these for me give the perfect amount of shine and cushiony feel. These vary in price depending wear you buy it but its approx €7.00
