There’s no denying that there has been a huge shift in cosmetics over the past few years. The quality of budget brands has drastically improved allowing them to rival luxury brands for a fraction of the cost.
Packaging has also vastly improved. So, even if you’re not splashing out on something expensive there’s still a luxury element to the purchase.
There are some truly great stand-out products on the market now. Not only are they a lot cheaper than you would expect for the quality of the product, they’re more widely available too. So, your makeup bag no longer has to rely on a spend-y trip to Brown Thomas!
Because we’re sound and spend far too much time thinking about makeup, we decided to share some of the best products that are under €10.
We basically put together a full face of makeup that all amounts to under €60! You’re welcome!
10 Makeup Products Under 10 Euro that you need in your life…
Light drops are everywhere, but it can be hard to find ones that don’t make up look like a disco ball. Missy Loves this one because it’s part primer.
It’s also super versatile because it can be used on it’s own, underneath foundation or mixed in with your base. We recommend mixing it with your foundation to add a bit of glow to your skin.
Penneys are continuously upping their game when it comes to their own beauty range and this Foundation might just be one of the best additions to their collection yet.
This is regarded as a very good dupe for the famed Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. It comes in a selection of colours that’s not super comprehensive, but leaves room for mixing your own colour together. A must buy for oily skin gals.
We have already declared our love for Conceal and Define and we still think that it’s an excellent budget buy.
When it says Full Coverage, it really means it. Set it with some powder and it will last you all day long. There are 25 shades in the range, which is amazing!
Who can remember a time when we didn’t bake our makeup? We cant!
Baking is messy and takes a lot of product, so we like something thats budget friendly and that actually works.
Eneter this offering by Penneys. The yellow undertones help counteract any discolouration in the skin. The container is a little bit annoying, so apply liberally with a Real Techniques Setting Bush and once you’ve baked press it with a Beauty Blender.
We’re kinda over the intense contouring trend; we’re all about subtlety enhancing our features now.
This is a very handy buy because its a bronzer and highlighter all wrapped up into one lovely little palette. It also reminds us of the Bobbi Brown Brick Compact that’s waaay more expensive.
Nothing beats an eyebrow pencil. It truly is the only way to get a natural, but defined brow.
Yes, Anastasia Beverly Hills is the queen of brows but the products are hard to get in Ireland and they don’t really last that well. Sorry, not sorry! This offering from NYX is truly unbeatable.
Beauty bloggers went crazy for this last year, and with good reason.
This give a false lash effect without the unsightly clumps that often comes along with mascara. Layer-up thin coats to get the best effect.
Eyeshadow palettes are a dime a dozen these days, but we honestly think that this little buy from Essence will see you through so many different looks.
From a beautiful bronze look, to a smokey eye to die for, to a natural shimmery nude – the options are endless with this palette.
Don’t @ us, but this is the best eyeliner on the market today, FACT! Not only does it last and last, it also applies like a dream.
These often draw a lot of comparisons to the Kylie Cosmetics Lipkits, but we think these are in a league of their own.
Unlike other matte lipsticks these are a lot softer on the lips and way more comfortable to wear.
Bonus points for the HUGE colour range on offer. When it comes to 10 Makeup Products Under 10, this is one of our top picks.
