Does your make-up need a refresh?[/caption]
1. Flower Beauty
Drew’s make-up collection is sending Brits wild[/caption]
Founded by Drew Barrymore, Flower Beauty is shaking up the industry with its cruelty-free, high-quality products at an affordable price.
From make-up to fragrances, sheet masks and brushes, Drew’s vision was simple – create an empowering collection of beautifully straightforward, luxurious products.
Landing in the UK at the end of last year, it’s still relatively new to us Brits, but ever since it arrived, beauty gurus haven’t been able to stop raving about it.
And when it comes to shoppers, Flower Beauty’s £13 Light Illusion Foundation – available at Superdrug – seems to be what everyone’s talking about.
2. Face Halo
It’s perfect for busy mums[/caption]
Dubbed “the modern make-up remover” Face Halo was created by founder Lizzy Pike after her friend revealed she was often too busy to remove her make-up at night.
With a 15-year background in technology, Lizzy found a solution – a non-toxic, environmentally friendly and cost-effective way of washing away the day.
Resembling a face sponge, the remover works by reaching deep into your pores to remove trapped dirt and make-up.
And it’s so easy – simply wet with warm or cold water and gently wipe across your face.
The clever HaloTech fibres ensure that nothing goes back onto your face and when you’re done, simply pop it in with your white/light colour wash.
It can be reused around 200 times and is available for £17 for a pack of three.
3. CYO Cosmetics
The brand encourage shoppers to “multi-task” their make-up[/caption]
It seems everyone is talking about CYO Cosmetics at the moment.
The affordable make-up brand arrived in the UK last year and has since taken the nation by storm.
The collection’s USP is its clever multi-use qualities – in fact, CYO encourage their fans to “multi-task” their make-up, using the same products for eyes, lips, cheeks and face.
For example, their contour stick works to highlight cheeks and define eyes, while their high pigment eyeshadows can be doubled-up as festival paint, too.
They’ve also got some rather high-profile fans.
In fact, make-up artist Hannah Martin – the mastermind behind Princess Eugenie’s wedding make-up – swears by CYO’s Sweeping Statement Metallic Eye Sticks – just £2.25 at Boots.
The best part is the entire collection is totally affordable, with everything is under £7.
4. Milk Makeup
It’s taken the beauty industry by storm[/caption]
Cruelty-free, paraben-free and 100 per cent vegan, when Milk Makeup arrived in the UK at the start of this year, the beauty industry went wild.
Dubbed the “cool girl make-up range” Milk is known for its low-maintenance, high-quality products made from natural, fuss-free ingredients.
Presented in beautifully sleek packaging, each product is designed so you can apply with just one hand.
It’s got a huge celeb following, too – from Liv Tyler, to Kate Bosworth – unsurprising, considering ahead of its UK launch, Cult Beauty had a waiting list of 17,000 fans.
Favourite products include their Kush High Volume Mascara, as well as the Watermelon Brightening Serum.
5. The Inkey List
Premium ingredients at an affordable price – that’s the mantra of The Inkey List, which launched in the UK last September.
The brand’s retinol serum hit the headlines last week after receiving hundreds of rave reviews online – and it’s less than a tenner.
One customer wrote: “Was very impressed with this. Smooth to apply and non sticky.
“It certainly made my face feel tighter and at a price we can all afford.”
The collection includes 20 hero products all designed to address a range of skin woes.
All priced under £15, it’s a game-changer for those seeking premium products at affordable prices.
Masterminded by dermatologists, it’s simple but effective[/caption]
It would be easy to walk past this no-frills range of cleansers and moisturisers in Boots, but bear in mind that it’s a big hit with dermatologists and one of America’s most popular moisturisers.
You’ll soon see past its low-key, clinical packaging.
Masterminded by dermatologists in 2005, all CeraVe products are powered by ceramides (hence the Cera part of the name).
These hard-working lipids are a type of fat that make up 50 per cent of the skin’s barrier, protecting it from getting dry, itchy or irritated.
Its fragrance-free formula is great for sensitive and eczema- prone skin, and the moisturising hyaluronic acid makes it a hero for anyone suffering in the winter cold.
