This post is for Sarahjane08, I love getting your feedback and emails and will always try and do what I can to help you guys out. Sarah said she is on a budget and wanted to know what are good affordable products. When it comes to Fashion and Beauty I really don’t believe you need to spend money to look good. I have a mixture of high street and high end products and believe you can always rock what you’ve got.
I want to share 5 high street products that will transform your face and I have used them on my face to demonstrate how you can go from being a plain jane (no pun intended Sarahjane08 lol) to really enhancing what you’ve got.
my 1st essential is a good concealer, I love L’oreals truematch range and used it under and a little on top of my eyelids, on blemishes and any areas that are generally darker just to balance out my skintone. Concealer makes you look refreshed and is definitely my number 1 product.
My 2nd must have is Clump Defy Mascara by False Lash Effect from Maybelline. This mascara was given to me at the Viva Beauty Awards and it is just as good as Benefits Bad Gal and Diorshow for just a fraction of the price. No surprise that it won beauty product of the year!
Thirdly I used L’oreals Super Liner Carbon Gloss. Eyeliner is a great way to define your eyes and really make them stand out. I know a lot of women struggle with applying liquid liners but there are some great youtube tutorials to help you out or try a gel liner for more control.
My 4th product is No.7’s High Shine gloss in a shade called smile by Boots. I love nude’s and natural pinks on lips and this is one of my favourite shades.
The final product I used is Topshops Glow Pot in Gleam. I used that in the inner corners of my eyes just to make my eyes pop a little more. I also applied some on my cheek bones and under my eyebrows to make them more defined.
If you use your makeup correctly it can really enhance what you have and learn how to make it give you what you don’t have (I create more sculpted cheeks with highlighter and contouring under my cheek bones). If you have big round eyes make your eyeline more straight at the ends to make your eyes longer, If your eyes are too close together, start your liner in the middle of your eye to create space between them.
Hope this helped Sarah x
