Bargain Beauty Buys

One of my pet hates as a beauty blogger is when I see people saying things like "you have to use high end brands to have your makeup look good". I'm not saying that high end brands aren't amazing. I have and use a whole lot of them myself. I just hate people thinking that they have to spend huge amount of money to look good. I've picked out five of my favourite bargain beauty buys to prove that being on a budget doesn't mean looking bad!
1. Models Prefer Matte Nude Shadows ($10.00)

There's no denying that the Urban Decay Naked palettes had a huge influence on these Models Prefer Palettes. The style is almost identical but at only $10, the Models Prefer versions are definitely friendlier to your bank account. These usually get released around Christmas but you can usually find them all year round, especially in the quieter Pricelines. This one is full of lovely warm nudes and although the quality isn't quite on par with the Urban Decay ones, they aren't bad at all!

I probably spend as long doing my brows as I do on the whole rest of my face sometimes! I love brow products and Make Me Brow is no exception. It's a great dupe for the famous Benefit Gimme Brow (which I also love) but for a fraction of the price. It comes in two shades and the formula contains micro-fibres to give brows volume and fill in any patches. Well worth the $5!

I am a slave to winged liners and this one is my old faithful. I know that I can always pull off a sharp wing in seconds. It's easy to use, easy to clean up and stays put all day. I've heard some negative reviews of this but for me, it's always been a winner and it still comes in under $20. 

Rimmel always kill it when it comes to lipsticks. They're well-priced, come in an enormous range of colours and look amazing on. My personal favourites are the Lasting Finish ones, just because they do have slightly better staying power. The Limited Edition Rose Gold Anniversary lipsticks are out at the moment with three reds and three nudes, if you needed any more motivation to buy!

I wasn't too much of a fan of the original version of this mascara but the Reloaded one is so much better. The brush is really fat and fluffy so it gives loads of volume without looking too overdone. I really like how full it makes my lashes look and it doesn't clump up or flake off. It's one of my current favourite every day mascaras.

What are your favourite budget beauty buys?
