Make-up Challenge – The £5 Face 

I don’t know about you but January usually means I’m feeling a bit on the broke side. Queue one glum face, dreaming of being able to go on a shopping trip again in what seems like the very distant future. 

Actually this was the best pic I could capture showing the simple make-up look I created using just £5 worth of make-up. Yes I’m serious!  

How? Well, I turned to budget brand MUA and also used my products in not quite their traditional manner as a multi tasking products. 

The products, I used included;

MUA Matte Foundation – £2 (mine is old packaging/formula)

MUA Lipstick in shade Nectar – £1

This doubled up as lipstick and blusher. I just blended out a couple of dots of it on each cheek for a natural peachy flush. 


MUA Brow Pencil in shade Brunette – £1 As a brow pencil this is great! I didn’t stop there though and used it to tight line and blended in my crease to define my eyes. Yup there was no room in the budget for eyeshadow.  A girl can make do though! 


Lastly I finished up with a spot of MUA’s £1 mascara. 

What do you think of my little budgeting experiment? Could you get by on £5 worth of make-up? Processed with Moldiv

  1. I think you’ve done so well with the £5 budget, the end look is great! It’s a really good idea using the eyebrow pencil as a liner and crease colour too 🙂
