Lipsticks are cult items we absolutely need in our makeup bags, and the shades we use are very personal to us as they represent us as individuals. Here are some great lipstick dupes you will love: Love it: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Pillow Talk Lipstick in Medium (£25) BELOW Dupe: Revolution Pro New Neutrals Blushed Satin Matte Lipstick (£5.99)
Mascara is your everyday essential item right! There are so many out there to choose from, but here is my fave dupe of the lot. They both have a special conic shape of the brush that adds length and dramatic volume for an amazing false lash effect.
Love it: It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara (£22) Dupe: Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara (£3.29)
Another essential item all ladies reach for in their makeup arson is eye pencil. Using an eye pencil helps to create a smoky eye and define your eyes without the use of a liquid liner. The best eye pencil should have a crayon-like consistency that glides on smoothly without the drag of a regular pencil, which in turn is gentler on the eye and has lasting power.
Love it: URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (£16) BELOW Dupe: LA Girl Shockwave Liner (£4.99) RIGHT
This is my absolutely number one dupe item of them all! I love dewy sheer foundation as I have very dehydrated skin. There was only 1 foundation type that really suited me. Until now… Love it: NARS Sheer Glow foundation (£33) Dupe: Makeup Revolution Conceal and Hydrate Foundation (£9)
Hydrate your skin with a primer that conditions to provide a smooth base for a perfect and lasting makeup. These lightweight primers are infused with micro particles to create a radiant glow and blurring effect, giving you a perfect canvas for foundation application.
Love it: YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer (£25) BELOW Dupe: NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Hemp Radiant Perfecting Primer (£8)
Here is another one of my fave dupes – concealer! Tarte’s Shape Tape concealer is firmly a cult makeup product amongst all makeup artists and the reason being is because of the amazing full coverage and creamy texture. Now, I have tried a lot of concealers (and I mean A LOT!) and finally have found one alternative that comes very close (if not identical) to the cult favourite. Both these concealers blend remarkably well, and never creasing or looking dry. Love it: Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer (£23) Dupe: Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer (£4)
