Waitrose baby bottom butter makes a good "hot cloth cleansing pomade" for dryish skin

Superdrug vit e face wash for everyday.... And agree with bobbi brown makeup. Mascara I never spend too. Much either as I replace frequently. My fave at the moment is bourgeois eyeliner mascara

Nivea tinted moisturiser great for everyday use. Also on offer at about £1.50 at the moment.

Pay £££ for moisturiser and foundation as they sit on your skin all day.

Everything else can be budget, imo.

Worth paying for: Beauty Flash Balm / Bare Minerals foundation set / Urban Decay eyeliners and eyeshadow / Lancome Definicils mascara

Cheap but good - Boots Natural Collection blusher / Revlon nailvarnish / Vaseline / Flexitol / Radox bubble bath / Waitrose own bubble bath

Bourgeois eyeliner mascara runs like rivers, maybe because I've really oily skin. Maybelline is great no panda eyes. I know I'm a newbie but I'm an expert at cheap stuff. No 7 is no good for make up but food enough for skincare.

Max Factor Lash Extention Effect mascara, about eight quid. Easily as good as YSL Faux Cils and Lancôme False Lash, which are both £25+.

Rimmel 25 hour foundation is good, amazing for the price. Bourjois foundations are really good to, just a little more expensive. Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer. My favourite lipstick is a Collection 2000 lasting finish one. And one of my favourite blushers is an MUA one, for a pound.

I like the natural collection (boots) make up, the mascara and eye shadows are good and only a couple of pounds each. I have just bought the bourjois 10 hour sleep effect foundation after reading good reviews on here and on the boots website. My friend said I looked radiant when I was wearing it. I have to say it does make me look less tired (a miracle in itself!)

ELF products are also good value. I think you can only buy them online. Google ELF (sorry am rubbish at links!)
