CREATE A FLAWLESS LOOK ON A BUDGET ...
Read on for Stephanie’s great blog post as she walks you through how to create a flawless look on a budget…
Hi everyone, I hope you’re all having a lovely FriYAY– it’s finally the weekend! That mean’s that it’s time to get glammed up!
Tonight I created a look on a budget. It's true that we don't need to spend a fortune on makeup to create a flawless and fresh look. The reality is that the high street have some beautiful products that give us equally defined cheekbones and that enviable pout!
This week I popped into my go-to place; Gordon's Chemist to fill my makeup bag and stock up on fake-tan.
Tips and tricks to create a flawless look on a budget
1. RIMMEL LONDON FIX & PROTECT PRIMER
The first step in applying makeup is primer! Primer is the base, which allows foundation to go on smoother and last longer.
The Rimmel London Fix & Protect primer is a light cream that when applied leaves no residue or oil. I would have fairly oily skin and it is important that I find a primer that doesn't leave my skin looking shiny.
2. RIMMEL LONDON MATCH PERFECTION
The hardest step in choosing a foundation is finding the perfect colour match. On a night out a warmer tone of foundation to blend in with the fake tan, is a must! Match Perfection, has a range of colours suitable for all skin tones. The coverage is also fantastic, for anyone with blemishes or acne scaring you can be rest assured that this will give you full coverage! Find it here
3. RIMMEL LONDON MATTE PRESSED POWDER
A colourless setting powder is the next step in ensuring that your foundation stays matte and non-oily. The Stay Matte Rimmel pressed powder for just £3.99 in Gordon's Chemist is perfect! Find it here

If you want your makeup bag to close easily then you will agree that a 3 in 1 compact powder which contours, blushes and highlights your cheekbones is the perfect solution. £6.99 in Gordon's Chemist for 3 amazing tones! Find it here
5. RIMMEL SCANDALEYES RELOADED MASCARA (EXTREME BLACK)
