Ten Under £10: Glowing Makeup for NYE

Well I do hope that you’re all having a lovely little break? I’m afraid I’m doing a bit of a fast-forward to the future (albeit near future) and talking about the New Year – or New Year’s Eve to be more specific – and some glitzy, shiny makeup that’ll get you in the mood for a party.

The best part? It’s all under a tenner.

Apart from two things, one of which (the Mariah Carey lipstick) was a purposeful, rebellious inclusion and the other (Topshop primer) was something that landed in the video by mistake. I usually price check everything quite thoroughly but this one slipped through the net. Mind you, it is possible that it was in the sale when I last looked, which was a few weeks ago – Topshop’s foundation cushion definitely was.

Anyway, if you want the list of products with prices and links to buy then they are below the video screen. But watch the video first – it’s a nice one, I think. I like that the makeup is quite gentle and light – nothing too smokey or dramatic, if you fancy an easy look that’ll shimmer and glimmer under the disco balls as you see in the New Year…
