Affordable Quality Eye-liners to create the purrfect feline flick!

Like all make-up and cosmetic products in this ever expanding industry, finding the best quality product is a key factor when it comes to the application. With  eye-liners in particular, a good quality liner is essential when it comes to creating the perfect definition. I have listed below my 3 favourite affordable quality liners that will suit all beauty budgets!

Number one on my list is the Inglot AMC Eye-liner Gel Pots. I am in awe of this product! They’re are 17 amazing shades to choose from.  Some of the brown shades are also perfect for shading in and defining your eyebrows. This liner is waterproof and smudge -proof and highly pigmented for long lasting colour! It can also be applied to the waterline of the eye.  It is ideal for wearing at day long events as it does not budge.  It retails at €15.00 and is available on (www.inglot.ie). Amazing value for you money I can promise you that!

This liner is ideal for beginners looking to create the famous “cat eye” flick. It’s pointed felt tip applicator and neat little handle will ensure simple and precise application. It is very durable and dries really quickly and the pigment is a pleasant opaque  black which gives accurate coverage. It retails at €3.29 and worth every penny in my opinion.

Budget Beauty – Flawless Make Up Enhancers Of The Moment!

I have recently discovered some budget friendly make up enhancers I just had to share with you! Although I am a lover of high end cosmetic products , I cannot always afford to purchase them all the time as many of you can probably relate to! So that is why I always ensure to keep an eye out for bargain beauty buys! These make up enhancers were purchased in Primark/Penneys and Claire’s Accessories and all for under €6!

Claire’s Accessories –  Make Up Setting Spray

This make up setting spray is light textured and surprisingly refreshing when it touches the skin. I contains ingredients such as Citric Acids, Silica and Leaf Juice and is suitable for more sensitive skin types. It absorbs into the skin very quickly and does not make the skin feel dried out as some high end brands do. 3 sprays over the face is sufficient to cover the area. My foundation stays in place for the entire day when I use this product. It is retailed at €5.99. I would certainly recommend this to anyone in need of a budget friendly setting spray! Definite thumbs up from me!

Primark Oil Blotting Sheets

Primark makes it possible once again!! The Primark PS Love have introduced some nifty little budget friendly beauty products to their already extensive range. This Oil Blotting Sheets are perfect for anyone who suffers with a shiny glare across their T-Zone. They are pocket size which is handy for budding MUA’s like myself to store in your make up kits and they are only €1.50! And quality wise, they give the more expensive brands a run for their money! Perfect little fix for your make up!

Primark Make Up Fixing Spray

This make Up Fixing Spray is a must have! it is an oil free product with other ingredients such as Gycol and Alcohol. For your information, I wouldn’t recommend this for more sensitive skins as it also contains a perfumed scent. However, this product is fantastic!! The first tiime using this I was blown away by the quality. My make up was still intact after a very long day and evening at an event. Priced at €2.50 you cannot go wrong with this product. 10 out of 10!

I hope you enjoyed reading and found this article informative.
