The £20 Make-Up Challenge!

At the moment on Youtube there's something called the £20 Make-Up Challenge doing the rounds. In theory it is pretty simple, you have to create a look with products and brushes etc costing less than £20. But in practice it did require some thinking! But anyway I decided to do this as I'm a lover of all things cheap and wanted to see what I could come up with, I hope you enjoy!

EDIT: After posting this one of my lovely followers on twitter pointed out that this actually adds upto a smidge more than £20 - fail on my part with the maths! It was never my strong point. But if you skip the blush brush then we're all good. I might do another version with different products and actually under £20!


NYC All Day Long Foundation - Classic Ivory (£3.99, Superdrug)
NYC Cover Stick - Light (~£1.50, Superdrug) 
Natural Collection Blushed Cheeks - Rosey Glow (£1.99)
ELF Blush Brush (£3.75, ELF's Website)  

ELF Duo Eyeshadow Cream - Mocha Swirl (£1.50, ELF's Website)
ELF Brightening Eye Colour - Day 2 Night (£1.50, ELF's Website)
Collection (2000) Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner (£2.99, Superdrug) 
NYC Show Time Volumizing Mascara (£1.99, Superdrug) 
MakeUp Academy Eyebrow Pencil - Blonde (£1, Superdrug)   

Primark Lip Stain Pen - no shade name (£1.50, Primark) 

That challenge was actually pretty fun to do, something a little different from the usual! And a lot less products too, but I think the overall look didn't turn out too bad, I hope anyway :)  

But if you wanted to do the challenge then go for it and leave me a link. I'm a massive lover of cheap products and I'm sure you all know of some gems I've overlooked! But most of all thanks for stopping by and I'll speak to you again soon, H :)  


  1. I was expecting a few more MUA products here but I like the range you've chosen. £3.99 foundation? Sounds too good to be true! x


    1. The foundations not too bad either actually, especially considering the price! I tried to steer clear of MUA a little as it was the obvious choice and I wanted to use some things that people might not have thought off!

  2. I just did the £20 face challenge on my YouTube channel too! Check it out? Http://www.youtube.com/scotlass99 :) x


I really appreciate all your lovely comments and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. But if you want a quick response try tweeting me, @MidnightViolet1 Thanks for reading my post, Hannah :)
