These guys are top of the quality affordable makeup list!

Their hero products include their Lip Lingerie nude matte liquid lipsticks, creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils, Soft Matte Lip Creams and Matte Lipsticks. Ranging from just £2.50 for a lip liner up to £20 for a palette, we think you’ll agree they’re a bargain!

Sleek MakeUp

Our second brand offering bargain beauty basics are Sleek MakeUp. We’ve raved about their blushers, highlighting palettes and liquid lipsticks before, but we’re not done shouting about their super affordable, quality makeup just yet. Beating NYX on price by a significant margin, their most expensive product is a mere £10.99! We’ll take the lot.

Topshop Beauty

Similarly cheap and cheerful, if you find yourself on the highstreet and fancy a beauty bargain then Topshop definitely hold the answer. Having launched their beauty line back in 2010, they’ve managed to establish themselves as a real player on the beauty scene. If you haven’t highlighted with their little pot of gorgeous Glow or perfectly defined cheekbones with their Contour Wand, then we’re here to tell you you won’t regret it!

theBalm Cosmetics

With simplicity at their core, theBalm aim to provide the tools to make women feel amazing in a flash. Slightly pricier than the other brands featured, we included them as a lesser-known brand offering brilliant products for a reasonable price. Their Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter has achieved cult status, while their Bahama Mama Bronzer reminds us of another very popular HOOLA girl themed bronzer, for a whole £7 less! We defy you to resist their retro-inspired branding and packaging?

Oh K!

Another brand that bring a touch of fun to proceedings are Korean brand Oh K!. They’re the only skincare brand on this list and they offer affordable solutions with a large dollop of quality K-beauty ingredients. Their hydrating sleep masks intensely moisturise skin while you sleep, while their Black Sesame Hydrogel Mask instantly revitalises and energises skin. Get a slice of killer Korean Beauty from just £3!
