Budget beauty: makeover the make-up bag

As the cooler weather comes in, console yourself with a pamper night and a make-up makeover. You don’t have to spend a fortune to overhaul your kit – we’ve recently tried skincare from a variety of brands, all under £20, and discovered some budget beauty gems. Here’s our top 10.

  1. No7 Airbrush Away Foundation, available in 14 Match Made shades so you can find your true match for an airbrushed complexion – £16.50, available on Boots 3-4-2 offer
  2. Avon Anew Beauty Age-Transforming Concealer has been reduced to just a fiver! It’s a touche eclat-a-like concealer that is perfect for hiding dark circles – £5, from avon.uk.com
  3. No7 Match Made Powder Blushers come in a wide range of colours but I use rose blossom for a healthy flush blush – £9, from Boots.com20151015_135524-2
  4. I don’t know how I use to get through the morning without Rimmel Wake Me Up mascara with extract of cucumber for sensitive peepers – £7.99, from Boots.com
  5. It’s Breast Cancer Awareness month so I am decorating my nails like this with the help of Avon Speed Dry+ – £6, from avon.uk.com
  6. Poundland Take a Brow Eyebrow Pencil is always in my handbag. And, if I lose it, it’s no bother to go and pick up another – £1, from poundland.com
  7. Avon Blush And Bronze Trio has also been reduced! See below for a tutorial on how to use it. £5, from avon.uk.com
  8. E45 is a winter skin essential for dry elbows, knees etc – £2.99 from various stockists
  9. L’Oreal haircare is an enduring essential. I love L’Oreal Elnett Heat Protect Spray Volume (£5.99) and L’Oreal Elnett Satin Diamond Hold (£6.70) to create Middleton-esque waves –  two for £10 at Boots.com
  10. Finally, if you are on the lookout for a new moisturiser, I recommend Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Cream – £4.59 from various stockists
