Top 5 under £5: Beauty | CharlotteBehappy

I thought I'd share with you my top favourite drugstore makeup items that are each under £5. None of the images are my own.

Miss Sporty Brow Gel - £2.99 // You can't go wrong with a brow gel. This is cheap, and lasts forever. It holds brows in place (even those unruly ones), as well as setting any brow makeup you've applied. It's not crunchy or sticky and leaves and invisible looking and feeling brow but does make a difference when trying to maintain your brows. 

Collection Big Fake Ultimate Mascara - £4.99 // This mascara wand is massive. Apply this on its own it gives you big dramatic lashes, but added on top of any mascara (curling/seperating/butterfly etc) adds to the effect and times is by ten. I always apply this on top of other mascaras for thicker and bigger lashes.

17 Stay Time Conealer - £4.49 // The lightest shade works as a perfect highlighter to go on your base (under you cheekbone shadow, on the cheekbone, down your nose, tip of chin, cupid's bow and forehead). It brightens under eye circles with a creamy consistency making it easy to blend but also gives good, long lasting coverage.

Carmex Moisutre Plus Berry Lip Balm - £2.99 (usually £4.49/£4.29) // These apply a sheer but build-able colour (this plum purple colour is perfect as it's an autumn vampy colour but is sheer so doesn't look too gothic). It's minty smelling and as it's carmex, stops lips from chapping or drying.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo (On and on bronze) - £4.99 // These last long as a product as well as lasting long on your eyelid. These are a fantastic base for a golden smokey eye that helps the colours pop or can be use alone blended for a sheer tint or a more build-able but basic and simple eye.
