Everyday Makeup For Under £20?

So thought i would hop on the band wagon today and do a "£20 makeup challenge" post. Now normally i use drugstore makeup anyway, unless its a special occasion or ive found a high end product i really love. So finding great products that weren't going to break the bank was an easy enough task!


 If im going to spend money anywhere it will be on my "base" as i feel that foundation can either give a flawless yet natural look or can look caked on and badly applied. Therefore i decided to choose a foundation that is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation a medium coverage foundation that give a dewy finish and lasts all day plus i retails for a decent £8.99. Next up i decided on the Collection lasting Perfection Concealer which gets raved about all the time and i completely agree that its a great product with good coverage and is only £4.19 on offer at boots! Next up MUA pressed powder now i have to admit that with using a dewy foundation i find myself using a tad of powder on my t-zone throughout the day however this one retails for a mere £1 and is just as good as higher end ones in my opinion. When it comes to blush i am defianltey more high street then high end simply because i only use powder formula and you can't go far wrong with powder. This ones from MUA Shade 5 for £1 and is a gorgeous peach shade that looks rather bright in the pan but one applied and blended is the perfect everyday colour especially as springs on its way. Next up is some Mascara i don't often do much with my eyes everyday other than apply some mascara this is Natural Collections Lengthening Mascara which is surprisingly good for £1.99. Last but not least an eyebrow pencil and some lipstick MUA Eyebrow Pencil is £1 and has a really nice creamy texture so is a dream to apply and blend leaving you with natural looking brows. The Lipstick is also by MUA Shade Juicy another peach shade that goes great with the blush ive chosen and looks really pretty especially on paler skin tones £1.

So thats it a great everyday look for just under £20 who said makeup had to cost an arm and a leg?
