Low-end (£8 or under) and cruelty-free makeup recommendations!

Woo! I’m back.

I really want to keep this blog going, but I can’t afford to buy much new makeup at the moment because I spend all of my money on drag shows…so I figured I’d give you guys my recommendations of fairly inexpensive, cruelty-free makeup! Cause what’s better than cheap makeup, right?

MAKEUP REVOLUTION-MERMAIDS FOREVER ULTRA 32 SHADE EYESHADOW PALETTEMakeup Revolution Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette - Mermaids Forever  - Click to view a larger imagePROS:

  • A large range of colours, ranging from matte to shimmers and light to dark.
  • Cheap, currently on sale for £8
  • Pigmented and versatile.
  • Little to no fall out
  • CONS:
  • There is no white shade, only a colour that you’d probably use as a highlight
  • That’s literally it I love this palete, honestly.


Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso

Milani Baked Blush, Luminoso

  • PROS:
  • A beautiful, subtle colour for an every-day look
  • Aesthetically pleasing AF
  • Large pan size
  • CONS:
  • This is a fairly light colour, so it may not work as well for some skin tones or if you don’t want your blush to be subtle
  • Slightly pricey at £8 on Amazon, but worth it


Essence Liquid Eyeliner

  • PROS:
  • Cheap, at £2.50 from Wilko’s can you really go wrong?
  • Pigmented and dark, so good if you want a cat eye
  • The wand makes for fairly precise lines
  • CONS:
  • This takes about three seconds to dry, which means you may need to look up at the ceiling for awhile to avoid getting it imprinted on the top of your eyelid
  • May not be easy to use if you’re a beginner when it comes to eyeliner as once its on, it’s on
  • Messy to take off. Be prepared to look like you just walked out of horror movie.

Makeup Revolution Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer

  • PROS:
  • Cheap, priced at £3.00
  • Works for SO long and has kept my eyeshadow on for like, five hours before
  • Increases pigmentation of most eyeshadows
  • Is everything you want in a primer
  • Despite being tiny, it lasts for quite awhile if you use it somewhat sparingly
  • CONS:
  • It’s small so, depending on how much you use and how often you put on eyeshadow, you may find yourself running out often
  • Sometimes I forget to put the cap back on and leave it on the side and some of the liquid comes out
  • So don’t do that don’t be me

I hope you enjoyed my recommendations and check some of them out! As always, I’m not sponsored, or have any expertise in makeup, I just love it and know it can be difficult for people to find cheap makeup.
