My Favourite Affordable Make Up Products

Friday is here! Finally. Can you believe it’s nearly Christmas? I’m finding it hard to believe, but I cannot wait until Christmas dinner. It’s all I can think about. Food, glorious food!

So, something completely different today! (Don’t worry, I’ll be posting on my normal days next week, Mon & Thurs).

I thought I’d share my go to make up products, that I always have in my make up bag. I find that I’ve recently gotten back into my make up, and I’m relishing it. I’m doing my make up for me, nobody else. And if you choose to not wear make up, go you! I love to do that when I can!

I thought I’d snap some pictures of me applying these products, and show you what I’m using. I actually really enjoyed doing this!


Firstly, I apply my beloved Maybelline Fit Me Foundation, in the shade 100. And I’m applying this with a brush, in which I can not remember the name of. Whoops.


And then, I apply (more like plaster on) my trusty Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder, in the colour Transparent. I find that this has such a matte finish, and lasts all day!


And my absolute favourite bit; applying mascara! I am loving Maybelline’s Sensational Lash Mascara right now. I am a little Maybelline obsessed lately. Oh well.


This is a new thing I’ve started doing! I recently bought some brown eyeliner, and apply a little bit to the edge of my eye, and blend it in with the tip of my ring finger. I find that this somehow enhances the eye, to appear bigger.


For my bottom lashes, I love to use a Seventeen Mascara, and surprise surprise, I cannot remember the name. I find that it’s very natural, and not at all clumpy!


And before I finish everything off, I like to use a beauty blender (non-latex Real Techniques) to make sure everything is blended nicely.


And for my lips, I always use a chap stick! It works wonders, and gives a lovely glow. I never wear lipstick, it’s a pain in the ass.


And last, but certainly not least, highlighter! I’ve recently started using Catrice’s New highlighter, but my fall back is always Penney’s (Primark) Mink Pink!


Okay, I won’t lie, this was so much fun! I hope you enjoyed, and maybe take something from this. And just so you know, I’m no make up expert, I’m just an avid lover of it!

These are the things I used!


Thanks so much for reading!

I decided to post pictures of me, for once. Because I’m sick of hiding. This is me!

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

See you Monday!
