This Makeup Look Cost HOW Much?! | Cheapest Makeup Look

Hello everyone!

A little while ago I did a blog post where I created a makeup look using the most expensive products in my makeup collection. Today I am going to be doing the exact same concept but on the other end of the scale; using the cheapest products in my collection.

I don't know about you but I absolutely love a bargain, so if I can find affordable products that really work then it makes me very happy!

Primer: Rimmel Lasting Finish
A good primer is always necessary when it comes to making your makeup last all day long, but they don't have to be expensive. I've been using the Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer for a long time now, even longer than my holy grail Benefit Porefessional, and it's great at creating a smooth base for foundation application. I also love the accompanying foundation, although that is not the cheapest foundation I own so I haven't included it in this blog post. 

Foundation: MUA Skin Define Matte Perfect
I could not believe my eyes when I saw this foundation on the Superdrug website for £4! I have used this foundation a few times now and it is good for the price. Although it is not the best foundation I have ever tried, what do you expect for £4?! The coverage is a light to medium, and is definitely buildable. Whilst it isn't the most flawless coverage ever; a little concealer does the trick! The shade range isn't great but drugstore brands in general don't have a huge shade range. 

Concealer: Collection Lasting Perfection
This concealer is an absolute gem! So many beauty bloggers talk about how amazing this concealer is and I completely agree. Collection have recently repackaged this concealer and it is a lot better than the old packaging, which felt and looked quite cheap. I love the shade Fair 1 for under the eyes as it is a really brightening concealer and covers dark circles under the eyes beautifully. It is actually hard to believe that this concealer is so cheap, but I'm definitely not complaining! 

Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte
My favourite, and cheapest, pressed powder is the Rimmel Stay Matte. I must have went through countless pans of this powder as it is just so great. I love just taking a big fluffy brush to this powder and dusting it all over my face. It definitely is one of the best powders for keeping my skin matte, and if you apply it with a light hand then it doesn't look cakey at all. 

Eye Shadow: Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette in Nude
I own two of these Collection eye shadow palettes but my favourite for creating an everyday makeup look is Nude. The Nude Bronze palette consists of all shimmer shadows, so it can be difficult to create a total look using that palette, but the Nude palette has all of the shades you would need to create total eye look. 

Mascara: ELF Volumising Mascara in Jet Black
ELF recently launched their products in Superdrug and I picked up this mascara for just £3. I have been using this mascara pretty much everyday since as I can't get enough of it. I really wasn't expecting it to be that great for the price but oh boy was I wrong! 

Brows: I Heart Makeup Brow Gel in Light/Medium
I don't do much to my brows but I always run through them with some sort of gel. My favourite is the Benefit Gimme Brow but the cheapest one I own is the I Heart Makeup Brow Gel. This one is okay but the brush is a little thick so it is quite difficult to apply it precisely; meaning that it does sometimes end up on the skin around the brows. 

Contour: MUA Bronze & Sculpt Kit
I included this little contour kit in my latest 'currently loving' blog post. As I mentioned in that post, I am not a big fan of the highlight in this kit, but I do love the contour shade. The contour shade blends out amazingly and is so pigmented that you only need to apply a small amount of product to get a defined contour. This is definitely worth buying just for the contour shade:) 

Blush: Sleek Single Blush in Rose Gold
As I've mentioned previously, I haven't really been wearing blush recently but I used to wear it on a daily basis. The Sleek Rose Gold blush used to be my go to blusher, and at £4.99 it's a brilliant dupe for the NARS Orgasm blush. The blush does have a LOT of gold shimmer to it, but I personally like it.

Highlight: MUA Undress Your Skin in Peach Diamond
The cheapest highlighter I own is the MUA UYS in Peach Diamond. This highlighter is £3... I will just let that sink in! The pigmentation is absolutely incredible for how affordable it is, and I get so much more use from this than I do more expensive highlighters. 

Lips: MUA Matte Lipstick in Fawn Fancy
I have a few of the MUA lipsticks, all of which are just £1, but the matte finish ones are my favourites. Fawn Fancy is a really nice deep brown shade and it applies really smoothly on the lips. Just one layer of this lipstick gives a really opaque finish, and MUA have tons more shades to choose from too.  

Total cost of the makeup look: £42.14
