The £20 Makeup Challenge TAG

Today I thought I'd do something a little different; the £20 makeup challenge. This tag has been circulating for a few years now and I vaguely remember doing it back on my old blog a good few years ago. You all probably know by now, I love a good beauty bargain and love my drugstore/high street beauty products. The aim of the tag is quite simple, create a full face of makeup for £20 or under - so here it goes: 

I used the Undress Your Skin foundation (£3 on sale from 5) from MUA in the shade porcelain which is great for pale skin and the coverage is really good too, you can see a full review here. I used my Natural Collection Concealer (£1.99) in the shade fair for under eyes and blemishes, it's really creamy and easy to blend and I'd definitely recommend it as a budget concealer. For the powder I used my Miners Fresh Faced Powder (£3.99) in the shade soft sand which adds a little bit of coverage and sets the makeup in place. For blush I used another product from Natural Collection which is the blush in 'Pink Cloud' (£1.99) which is a completely matte pink shade that is SO nice, another recommendation there. I'd say that was a pretty good 'budget base'. 

For my eyes I used a few shades from the w7 naked nudes palette (£3.29) which has some great everyday neutrals in along with my £1 mascara from PS love (primark's beauty range) which I really like. For the brows I used the brow pencil from Ps Love (£1.50) which has a spoolie wand on the one end which is always handy, it's in the shade blonde but it is a little on the warm side for me. Finally I used another product from Ps Love, are you sensing a theme? The lip gloss crayon (£1) in this lovely nude shade is perfect for everyday lips, it applies very much like a lip butter with a lovely tint of colour. The finished result cost a grand total of £17.76 and looked a little something like this: 

There are definitely some great finds here that just go to show that you don't need to spend a fortune on makeup. I'll nominate a couple of other bloggers to try the £20 makeup challenge - but of course, anyone reading can feel free to take part! I nominate:
