I know how it feels, when you have zero money but you wish you had all the make up that your favorite stars do.
You start to trawl through all of your make up bags to find something that will do, and go mental when you can't find it.
Well, like I always say (Or maybe I just thought it now?), get the basics down, and then just experiment! It doesn't matter what you do with your eyes, if your mascara is clumpy!
So here are my favorite Drug Store deals, that let you get the basics down, and still have money to spare!
1. Rimmel Wake me up foundation - £6.00
This foundation is my favorite to use when it is sunny like it is now (Touch wood), as it is light enough so that it won't budge in the heat but will still cover your blemishes wonderfully. It really does wake up your skin after a hard days... reading.
2. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - £4.00
I love this concealer so much. I have dark circles which I hate, and this concealer not only covers them but everything else too! Seriously, £4.00 and you have the strength of a £20.00 tube.
3. Rimmel - Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick - £5.00
I have to admit, that I am a complete addict to lipstick, and I am a fiend for trying every color under the sun, even if it doesn't suit me straight away. This lipstick stays on my lips all day (Although beware sandwich eaters - you do tend to eat it off if you are as messy as me). Even my boyfriend appreciates that he doesn't pull away from kissing me looking like Dame Edna. I highly recommend trying number 30 (a dark rouge) and the fire truck red.
4. MUA Eyeliner - £1.00
Now this is a mixed feeling for me. It's one of those items that I use daily, and keep meaning to replace with a better version but never do. It's black, easy to apply, and stays on all day. For one pound, you really cannot complain. My eyeliner has lasted for months and has no sign of drying out, so who can complain?
5. Revolution Eye shadow Palette - £3-7
I am the biggest fan of bright eye shadow colors, and nothing annoys me more than none pigmented eye shadow that I have spent so much money on. So when I stumbled across these lovelies, I was merrily surprised. These colors are bright, long-lasting and beautifully colored. All of the palettes have different arrays of colors that can take you from the day to the night with ease.
So there you have it! My drug store favorites. Make-up that is kind to your bank balance, but great to your style.
Let me know what are your drug store favorites, and if you have any looks you love to create!
Much love x
