Whilst sometimes it’s true that you get what you pay for, high street shops are now filled with fantastic, high quality makeup products which are often so high performance, you wouldn’t believe the price tag attached. Here is my pick of some of the best high street makeup products:
If you use black eyeliner, then this is a must. A great alternative to NARS’ Larger Than Life eyeliner, the L’Oreal version not only stays on for just as long but is also considerably cheaper.
If you’re after perfectly groomed brows, then look no further. This handy little kit contains a lighter powder and a darker gel formula – one to fill in your brows and the other to shape and define them. It comes with a small brush but if you want pro-like results, invest in a proper angled eyebrow brush and this kit will be all you need to look pulled together.
Part balm, part lipstick, the Revlon Lip Butters have taken the world by storm. Beautifully moisturising whilst still packing a colour-punch, these are not to be missed. Be warned: once you try one, you’ll want them all.
For girls who have oily skin, this is a must-have. Takes away shine instantly and has excellent staying power. Make sure to apply with a brush (and ditch the sponge applicator) and you’ll achieve a natural, flawless finish.
These baked blushes bear a remarkable resemblance to the Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes and are just as lovely to use. The colour is easily buildable and the shades are all incredibly pretty and flattering. The adorable packaging with little mirror and brush is just icing on the cake.
One of the best concealers on the market, this works equally well as an under eye concealer as it does a spot cover-up. The staying power is fantastic and the price is unbeatable. Every girl should own this.
A great introduction to contouring, this compact offers fantastic value for money. It combines a deep brown shade for sculpting and a shimmery pale colour for highlighting. Perfect for both travel and everyday, this compact will happily take the place of any bulky single highlighters or bronzers. Here are some affordable makeup brush lines you can use with this kit.
So that concludes my round up of some of the best beauty products on the high street that can work wonders without breaking the bank. If you’re still looking for more great beauty buys, all under £20, then check our top 20 best beauty products.
