Fortunately for our wallet, we live in a time when high performance and low price are no longer mutually exclusive. My makeup bag is a mix of high and low - here are my affordable makeup musts:
This is such a staple of mine, I've used it for years and although there are constantly newer and fancier mascaras on the market, this one delivers lush, full, glossy lashes better than any other in my view.
This blush is so pretty and sheer - it never goes patchy and the shade is perfect for my medium skin-tone. (other shades in the range are just as gorgeous and work for different skin colours)
This is my secret weapon for speedy day-to night makeup. Just a few strokes turn my office look into glimmery, smokey eyes.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation
This has the finish of a super high-end foundation and though the shade range isn't vast, the colours are very skin true and blendable. Definitely a great buy for medium coverage, with a glowy, non heavy finish.
These two are the perfect sheer sculpting shades - they don't look too heavy for every day wear.
Such a pretty flattering mauvey-pink in a matte but not chalky texture.
