Affordable Makeup Starter Kit

5:00 PM

I know the first time that I walked into Boots to buy makeup for the first time, I did not know where to look first, I really had no idea what I was looking for. I ended up with a lot of different coloured eyeliners, and very bright, very light pink lipsticks, not to mention a foundation 5 shades too dark for me. This post is to help any of you who is starting out, and maybe help you avoid the mistakes that I made!

L'Oreal True Match Foundation | £9.99
I love this stuff, and if you are new to makeup, this is the best one to go for. If you have amazing skin, skip on foundation, just go straight to concealer, on the areas that you need it. It suits all skin types, and it isn't too heavy, not to mention that it comes in every shade and undertone! (Click here to find out what your under tone is)

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer | £4.19
This is really good. It is full coverage, easy to apply and blend and it stays in place all day long. Plus, its very affordable! Perfect if your starting out in makeup.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder | £3.99
This is a great powder, as it is transparent and works for all skin types. A light dusting of this sets the makeup, and keeps your skin matte and fresh all day long.

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer 'Sunny' | £2.61
When I first started to buy makeup, this was my favourite. Everyone talked about it on YouTube, so I thought I was really cool owning my own, haha! It can be used not only to bronze, and warm up the face, but to also add definition and contour.

MUA Blush | review | £1
These are only £1, and they are amazing. They are super pigmented, very blend able and come in every shade you would ever need!

*Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter | review | £3.00
This is a gorgeous highlight. It can be quite intense, but if you use a light hand, this is just a nice, glowing touch to your makeup!

L'Oreal Brow Artist Shaper | £4.99
This is great, you get the pencil, wax and a little brush to blend. It comes in a range of different shades, and is very easy to apply.

Maybelline The Nudes Palette | £9.99
This has got some really good shadows, matte and shimmer. Easy to blend and decent pigmentation, really good for beginners too!

L'Oreal Super Slim Liner | £6.99
This is the best eyeliner I have ever tried. It is a very easy liquid liner, so if you want to only do a very slim line, or a more dramatic winged liner, this makes it very easy to do!

Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara | £8.99
This is great for any beginner because it has an upper lash wand, then a lower lash line wand. Its such a great mascara, for lengthening and adding lift to the lashes. It really does open up your eyes, and enhance your eyes.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lip Liner | £2.99
This lasts all day long and it doesn't feel to drying on your lips. They also come in so many different shades.

Wet n Wild Long Lasting Lipsticks | review | £2.00
These are my favourite affordable lipsticks. They come in every shade and a lot of different finishes. They last all day and don't dry out your lips! 

NYX Butter Gloss | £5.00
These are really nice glosses. They are highly pigmented, and don't feel sticky or gross on your lips! The perfect affordable lip gloss!
