Beauty on a Budget- My every day make-up routine

Hi everyone!
I wanted to do a little post showing you the products I use to create my every day make-up look, as I've shown in this photo! 



Anyone who has read my previous posts will know that I'm a student, so I tend to keep my make up budget quite low. I hope I can show you all that you don't need to spend lots of money to create an every day, natural look!



 I start of my daily routine by using the Simple- Kind to eyes soothing balm, which is £3.99 and available from lots of places, boots, superdrug etc. (I actually got mine in tescos.) I find this really wakes me up and makes me feel refreshed! Especially if I wake up feeling a little groggy. (If you really struggle waking up in the morning then keep this in the fridge and apply it straight from there! I know it sounds strange but it really does make a difference)





Secondly I use Rimmel- Match Perfection Fix & Perfect Primer, which costs £6.99. I think this creates a nice base for the rest of my make-up and makes my skin feel a bit nicer (and smell nice!) I use a brush to apply it and then I usually leave it for a few minutes to set before moving onto the next step.




 Next I apply a tinted moisturiser. You can apply a foundation at this point if you want more coverage or something a little heavier, but for a more natural day-time look, I use Natural Collections tinted Moisturiser, which is a bargain at just £1.99! I find natural collection products are really kind to my skin. I use the lightest shade of this as I am quite pale, and since this product gives quite a light coverage I find it doesn't leave a visible line around my face.





I finish off my make-up routine with my eyes. I use the Collection- Extreme 24 hour felt tip liner, which costs £2.99 to create a winged liner effect on top of my eyelids. Followed by Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless mascara which is £7.99. I really like this mascara! I've been using it for about a year now and I don't think I'll be changing any time soon! It coats my eyelashes nicely without making them clump together. This mascara has a nice brush that seperates my eyelashes out well before covering them and I find that it lasts for ages!





On a daily basis I don't always wear lipstick but if I do then I tend to go for quite subtle shades. If you're looking for a good day-time lipstick on a budget then I'd recommend the MUA  lipsticks which are only £1 each! Another favourite of mine for lipstick is the Natural collection range. I find both MUA and Natural collection lipsticks last really well and don't leave my lips feeling dried out. I don't actually just use these lipsticks for daytime, I have worn them to more formal occasions and have always received compliments! (Although I do go for their more vibrant shades for bigger occasions.)





I hope you've enjoyed reading about my daily make up routine, and hopefully I've convinced some of you to give these products a go! Let me know if you already use some of them and if you do, let me know how you find them! Also this is my first make-up post so let me know if you've liked it, and what other ones you'd like to see from me! :)

    1. Awhh thank you so much for such a lovely comment on my post :) I'm not surprised you get lots of people after the eye cream, it's quite addictive once you start using it! I find that it makes my eyes feel less hay-fevery too!

    1. Yeah I'd definitely recommend it! It took me ages to find one that I liked and to stick to it, but I found it with this one! I've been using it for over a year now and I love it :) Have a look at the brush before you buy it though, it's the plastic one which not everyone likes, but personally I do and I think it makes my eyelashes look long and thick!
      Thank you for commenting and sorry it's taken me a while to get back to you :) xx
