Under £10 Makeup Starter Kit

I love reading these kind of posts but really dislike it when the products are just a few pounds off from being a high end product; not everyone can afford expensive products. That being said, I thought I'd post my own makeup basics, which is purely drugstore.

BASE

Maybelline Baby Skin (£7.99) is a supposed dupe for Benefit's Porefessional. It is silicone based and definitely does make your pores disappear. Only a pea-sized amount is needed as a little goes a long way. Another super cheap alternative is Smoothing Light Reflecting Primer Kisses xo by Wilkos (£3.00) doesn't really reflect light but does blur out pores and makes your skin feel silky smooth.

FACE

Makeup Revolution Matte Effect Foundation (£2.00) definitely does what it says on the label and is good for low coverage. I did a full review of this here. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (£7.99) blends so seamlessly and makes your skin look oh so perfect. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation (£6.99) is a medium to full coverage and was featured in this post where it was compared against its sibling Maybelline Wake Me Up.

Natural Collection Loose Powder (£1.99) is a godsend and at such a low price, this is so affordable. Plus it lasts for a few months too. MUA Blushes (£1.00) are probably the cheapest blushes which have mega pigmentation. It does have a bit of a fall out though. MUA Bronzer (£1.00) is also another super affordable item. Pigmentation is good but this bronzer is more orange-toned so is harder to contour with so is best off as a general bronzer. NYC Bronzer (£1.99) is the perfect brown-toned bronzer that I use for contouring, and it lasts all day!

EYES

Rimmel Brow This Way (£3.99) and Rimmel Professional Brow Pencil (£2.99) work side by side to make your eyebrows how you want them to be. A light hand can be used to make them natural, otherwise a heavy hand can be used to make your eyebrows harsh and bold. Rimmel Max Bold Curves Mascara lengthens your lashes and Maybelline Great Lash Mascara (£4.99) is super easy to apply and thickens your lashes. Both these mascaras were featured in my mascara collection postRimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner is the best liquid eyeliner I own, hands down. It is super easy to use and lasts all day, even in my oily eyelids.

MUA Undressed Palette (£4.00) is such a versatile palette, as I find a use for all the colours. Makeup Revolution Flawless Eyes Like Angels (£8.00) is such a beautiful palette, the colours are oh so gorgeous. There is some fall out with the more shimmery colours on both palettes but wear time is good. Lastly the Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks (£2.99) are individual shadows that can be 'linked' to create your own palette. I absolutely love the colours I own. Below I have posted my favourite eyeshadow colours from the palettes!

LIPS

Body Shop Born Lippy Pink Berry Lip Balm (£3.00) is my go-to and favourite lipbalm. I apply this before I put on any matte lipsticks and makes my lips feel so hydrated and moisturised. Revlon Matte Balm (£7.99) is a bit pricey but is definitely worth it. It dries matte after a few seconds but does not dry your lips out, they still feel super moisturised. Revlon Lip Butter (£7.99) is another pricey one but is also worth it. These moisturise your lips whilst giving them a slight tint. Makeup Revolution Lipstick (£1.00) are super cheap but are really pigmented, especially for the price you pay. Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss (£5.49) are super pigmented and last about 3.4 hours before a top up is required. They have a slight smell but this doesn't affect me. Topshop Lipsticks (£8.00) are also a bit pricey, but are comparable to MAC lipsticks. Rumour has it, Topshop makeup is a brand under MAC! Revlon Super Lustrous Lipglosses (£5.49) look so natural on your lips and aren't sticky like how most lipglosses tend to be!
