I'm definitely a sucker for affordable makeup. Don't get me wrong, I love browsing the Selfridges beauty hall as much as the next blogger but there's something about walking through the doors of Boots and Superdrug that just feels like home. Ja feel? Over the past year or so I've discovered quite a few drugstore gems and even dupes for some of my high-end favourites so today I want to talk you through five of the best makeup brands that are just a lunch break away. 
five high-street makeup brands i swear by blog post
NYX Cosmetics | I have quite a soft spot for NYX. It's one of the first American brands I ever tried well over 6/7 years ago now. One of the main reasons I love their products is because they offer amazing formulas and pigmentation while still being super affordable. They also have a good few dupes throughout their range which is great for guys and girls starting out in makeup who don't have the biggest budget. I love pretty much everything I've tried from them but the Full Throttle Eyeshadow Quad in Colour Riot and Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm are two of my absolute faves! 

L'Oreal | I don't think there's a makeup wearer alive who hasn't tried or at least heard of L'Oreal. They offer one of the most inclusive shade ranges for foundations on the high-street and have an amazing range of beautiful formulations and finishes for all skin types. One product that is a complete must-have from them is the True Match Foundation. I also really love their mascaras for instant volume and definition! 

Primark Beauty | I'm not the biggest Primark clothing fan but their beauty section always lures me in. I haven't tried a shed load from them as most of their collections don't really appeal to me but the P.S Primer Water is something I cannot live without! It literally costs £2 and is the best setting/fixing mist I have ever used! Accidentally applied too much powder? Use this. Need to refresh your makeup? Use this. I can't recommend it enough! 

KIKO Cosmetics | I haven't shopped in KIKO for a little while now but whenever I do I always find something new in there. I really rate the fact they cover everything from makeup to skincare and even beauty tools. They've just brought out a new range of brushes which feel so soft, I'm tempted to pick one up! If eye-makeup is your thing I would highly recommend their Cream Crush Eyeshadows and Intense Colour Long Lasting Eyeliners - they're so creamy and pigmented!  

Makeup Revolution | This is actually the brand that inspired me to write this post. Everyone and their dad raved about the Conceal & Define Concealer when it first launched and for good reason and since then I've fallen more and more in love with their products. It's no secret that I love a good glow and their Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Starlight gives the most beautiful sheen to the cheekbones. I've also been loving the Lace Baking Powder as it keeps my foundation in place all day long. They have so many amazing products and for the price point, you seriously can't go wrong!
