10 Affordable Makeup Brands You Didn't Know About

1. Maybelline

Did you know that BB creams are not just tinted moisturisers and that they provide heavier coverage than just that. BB creams contain amazing ingredients; vitamin A, C, SPF, anti aging and more. That’s why Maybellines BB cream is the best drug store affordable BB cream out there. Your foundation shouldn’t be cakey, heavy and damaging to your skin, that why BB cream is the healthier option. It’s light, hydrating and provides a full coverage. I use this product everyday on my skin in the only negative is there needs to be more in a bottle!

 2. E.L.F

A lot of us love having different shades of lipsticks to match different outfits. Well the cheapest way to do this, is to go to the E.L.F brand. You can grab one of every shade for $3 at your local drug store, or Kmart! They are long lasting, you can drink from a glass, eat and even kiss without ever worrying!

3. KIKO Milano

So while I was travelling in Scotland, I came across KIKO. Now this brand isn’t available in Australia just yet, but when it does get here you can say goodbye to your bank account. Mascaras are three pounds, which is just under $6 here! Although KIKO is cheap, the quality is definitely there. The eyeliner provides a clean straight line as the brush is small and thin, which is what every girls wants. Also the eye shadow is so pigmented the tiniest little stroke from the brush provides great colour all over the eyelids. KIKO is definitely something to look forward to.

4. NYX Cosmetics

Highlighter has become the most popular used product in 2017. Great highlight is the pinnacle of every girl’s day. My friend recommended this product to me and I absolutely had to buy it. NYX Cosmetics highlighters is one of the cheapest but high quality highlighters I have ever used, and I mean I’ve used a lot of different products, but nothing compares to this. For only $7 the pack comes with two highlighters and a matte power to finish it off.

5. BH Cosmetics

BH Cosmetics is definitely a brand to look out for. A few of their awesome products are the 88 eyeshadow palette for $13 and the 120 colour palette for $18! Now you may be thinking that is only the horrible colours. Let me tell you it is not! There’s three palettes, Matte, Shimmer and Neutrals. Neutrals is my favourite, because it’s the colours I wear the most. With a quick reapply of eye shadow during the day, it lasts long and is more pigmented than you would ever imagine for the cheap price.

6. Essence Cosmetics

Essence was recommended to me by a friend. My friend was wearing a really nice pink blush and I had to go out and buy it. The blush, is pigmented, light and its the perfect shade for your cheeks! Another great, affordable product is the mascara. Both products are long lasting and stay on throughout the day without the need for reapplying.
