Need to update my make up bag on a budget of about £25! Impossible?
After a slight mishap at the weekend I have beenforced decided to update my make up bag, I only have a budget of £25 for everything as am a bit skint and it is the last thing I should be buying but a girls got to have some make up surely
So I need your recommendations for cheapish products that are effective and also any tips on how to make it last longer or make more use out of my stuff would be great!
I'm useless at all of this stuff tend to just stick with colours I think are pretty rather than what suits me but now I'm almost 23 I should really have grown out of that
I have light brown hair and piercing blue eyes if that helps anyone. Thanks
Miss Sixty mascara - 2.99 and it's as good as any of the expensive ones.
Bourjois - (is a Chanel company so quality seems good but cheaper). I particularly like their eye shadows, blushers etc. I think they do foundation too but not sure.And I see their lip glosses highly recommended, although have no personal experience of them.
I have light brown hair and blue eyes and I wear very little eye shadow on a daily basis - I find a swipe of mascara and perhaps a small amount of a whitish eye shadow just on the top lid is sufficient. I use a couple of mid browns with a hint of pink otherwise and very occassionally a bit of green.
TK MAXX were doing 10 pieces of Rimmel make-up in a pack for £8, you can't choose the colours but from what I saw they seemed pretty normal, cream/brown eyeshadow, black mascara and nude lip gloss. I was going to buy it myself but got side tracked by shoes and forgot to pick it up!
