They don't shout about it enough, but Cover FX is co-developed with a founding partner of MAC Cosmetics. There's a wide range of powders and foundations in diverse shades, but a must-try is the Custom Enhancer Drops, €35, available in Arnotts, which are  liquid metallic highlighters which can be worn alone, or added to your foundation for a more subtle glow.

NOTE Ultra Rich Colour Lipstick, €4.95 



All of the NOTE Cosmetics range is cruelty-free and vegan, and this richly pigmented, argan oil and cocoa butter-infused lipstick should be a staple in every make-up bag, especially for quality at this cost.

Inglot Italian Kiss Matt Eyeshadow, €6


Inglot's range of vegan products is vast, from Cream Concealer, €14, AMC Brow Liner Gel, €16, and False Lash Effect mascara, €12, and the Italian Kiss Matt Eyeshadow collection of five burnishing shades of warm orange browns, berry purples and fiery reds are a worthy vegan addition to any night-out look.
