The Collab Girlies - A Full Face For Under £20Sunday, October 23, 2016
I'm starting a new Collab series on my YouTube Channel starting from today.
I don't know if we will be calling it The Collab Girlies but that is the name of the chat we have about it and I kinda like it.
Our first Collaboration was to create a full face of makeup for under £20. I assumed this would be easy and initially I planned to nip to Superdrug and buy all new but then I realised I own a tonne of make up and it would be silly to buy all new.
You could easily create a full face for under £20 but did initially struggle as I couldn't remember how much I'd paid for thing, some of the items I had as PR samples from events or prices have changed since I got them. I also missed out some bit of makeup I'd normally use as I didn't have a good value price. I did have a couple of things I had free from magazines or from beauty boxes but it seemed like a cheat.
I did wear this look for a Christening I went to on the day I filmed the video and I didn't add anything extra so I feel this worked out well and came in at around £19
Foundation - NXY Matt not flat £6.00 I do like this foundation but I find that as I put it on I get flakes out foundation but I can't work out if it's the foundation or sponge or what. I don't think I'd but it again but as an everyday foundation for work its not bad.
Powder - Essence powder - PR Sample but most powders are around £2. I don't think this is available any more but it's a nice powder and I've always liked essence powders.
Khol Me Beautiful Eye Pencil £1.00 Poundland - A really great khol pencil. I'm really impressed with pencil and I prefer it to some more expensive eye pencils I've had before
Eyeshadow Make up Revolution Base! & Insomnia £1.00 each. Both of these are very shimmery but looked lovely on together and blended well.
Lipstick Essesnce Colour£2.29 each - In the video I said I thought these were £1.00 each but I think I was confusing them with the make up revoloution lipsticks. I did have this as a PR sample from an event but I googled the price. I thought this lipstick was a good colour to start transitioning into more autumnal colours without going very dark for daytime.
Rimmel Lash Tint Mascara £5.99 (RRP £7.99) - I bought this at an introductory price when it first came out and I do like it. It doesn't tint my lashes but works well as a day time mascara. I do think I need 2 coats to get decent coverage but I would but it again. I've working on not keeping a huge number of mascara's as at one point I had around 15! Not all open, I've got it down to around 6 but the others are clinique and NYX and I think this was the cheapest one I have. One of my favourite cheap mascara's is from Primark and I keep meaning to buy another one but my aim to keep my numbers low has stopped me.
You will need to excuse how tired I look but I am really pleased with the look, even though I would normally wear more make up and attempt to tame my brows I was happy to go out wearing this make up.
