Help! I’ve left my makeup bag at home. Full Make Up Kit for £30
We’ve all done it, arrived at our destination to find we have left our carefully packed makeup bag on the dressing table at home. Obviously you still need to look good, you’ve gone away for a reason, usually a wedding or party so no makeup isn’t an option. But neither is blowing £150 + to completely replace your existing kit.
This is what I would choose if stuck between the prospect of no make up and still having some money to enjoy the weekend/holiday . It is also useful for those of you just starting out on the slippery slope of wearing makeup, or looking for a fresh look.
Foundation – I have to go with Rimmel Match Perfection £6.99 It is one of my top 3 budget foundations anyway. It gives a luminous soft finish and has a good colour choice. I often grab one of these when my skin is between shades so I can warm up or cool down an existing foundation (blends great with Revlon Colorstay as it extends the time you have till it sets). This is a good foundation for both dry and oily skin, though it definitely needs powdering on the t-zone as it has a dewy finish.
- Powder brush (used for powder and then blush, and you can even highlight with the eyeshadow too)
- Eyeshadow Brush – Ecotool’s brushes apply colour and blend well too, you will need to wipe between colours though, obviously!
- Angled Liner Brush – to apply eyeliner, choose a dark shade from the palette and tight line your lashes and blend out with the eyeshadow brush or you can use a drop of water to make a more liquid consistency if you prefer cats eyes. You can also use this to fill your brows using a suitable colour from the eyeshadow palette.
Total £30.19 (damn 19p over)
I applied the whole look yesterday and this is how it turned out. Not too bad for £30 including brushes, plus you’d get a few new items to add to your kit. The only thing I’m not very happy with is the brows, maybe I could use hairspray or something to fix them better and use more colour.
