Save Money on Your Beauty Essentials

Gone are the awful budget brands of the past, with cakey, flaky and frosty makeup textures, and in place is a massive selection of excellent makeup brands with hundreds of items under £5.

Let us know what you think!

Here’s a selection of the best budget brands for you to create masterpieces with:

MUA (Make-Up Academy)

This is sold exclusively in Superdrug and is worth a look.

The quality of the nail polish is stunning. You only need 1-2 coats for a great budget manicure.

Barry M

Barry M has come on LEAPS and BOUNDS in the last 5 or so years with fashion-forward nail polishes, and the prices are astonishing.

Natural Collection

A Boots-only brand with a fab range of naturally inspired skin, hair and body products, and make-up. To be quite honest with you, everything is under £5, which is unbelievable.

Collection 2000

Collection 2000 is another brand who have improved in the last 5 years. They have never tested on animals to create their makeup products.


Rimmel London has been a makeup staple for almost everyone for years. Their Glam Eyes liquid eyeliner in Black and Brown and their Eyebrows pencils are firm favourites. The 25-hour foundation is sweat, heat, humidity and transfer-proof for up to a total of 25 hours.

Invest In Permanent Makeup

Semi-permanent makeup treatments aren’t the cheapest option, but when you think of how long they last, you will save lots of money in the long run.

Plus, your makeup will always be perfectly applied.

Invest in tattooed eyebrows, beautiful lip blush or sexy defined eyes with permanent eyeliner
