Carlow native Lauren Whelan – the trendsetting TikTok creator with over 1.6 million followers – shares her affordable make-up must-haves, the setting spray she can’t live without and the viral blusher everyone should try.

Lauren Whelan

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, €55

As someone who has super dry skin, I need to make sure my skin is prepped and hydrated before applying any form of make-up. This product has never failed me! It is a moisturiser and primer all in one, and leaves my skin super glowy and hydrated!

Lauren Whelan

Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil, €26

Benefit is the queen brand of brows and no matter how many other brow products I’ve tried, I always go back to this pencil. It’s just so thin and easy to use that it creates the perfect natural brow look.

Lauren Whelan

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, €5.99

This powder is chef’s kiss. It’s brightening, it’s mattifying, it doesn’t crease and the best part is, it’s only €5.45.

Lauren Whelan

KVD Beauty Good Apple Concealer, €30

This concealer is super underrated. It has such high coverage, without feeling cakey or heavy. Perfect for a flawless under-eye and to cover any pimples.

Lauren Whelan

Kash Beauty Skin Glaze, €19.95

No matter the make-up look, this will bring your make-up to the next level, Leaving you looking even more gorgeous than a glazed doughnut.

Lauren Whelan

Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Plus Foundation, €53

This foundation is my favourite for a full coverage look. It is a matte finish, but still isn’t drying so is perfect for anyone with dry skin, and turns up amazing in photos.

Lauren Whelan

Nars Orgasm X Blush, €18

All I’m going to say, is this blush is accurately named. It is just such a sexy and flattering blush with a gorgeous glow.

Lauren Whelan

True Beauty by AK True Essentials Face Palette, €39.99

This palette has everything you need in the most amazing formulas. It is so handy for travelling as well as it has bronzers, blushers and highlighters all in one convenient place.

Lauren Whelan

YSL Lash Clash Mascara, €34

This is the blackest mascara I have ever used, so it’s so flattering on the eyes and makes them pop!

Lauren Whelan

L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation, €14.99

This is the perfect foundation for anyone who isn’t super confident doing their make-up or is just starting out! It’s super blendable so it’s so effortlessly flawless and extremely lightweight.

Lauren Whelan

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, €36

This is perfect for setting your concealer, all while adding that little extra bit of coverage to your make-up.

Lauren Whelan

Kash Beauty Midnight Metals Eyeshadow Palette, €19.95

Warm tones are out, and cool tones are in. This is the perfect palette to introduce you to cool tone eyeshadows with a super blendable formula.

Rare Beauty Liquid Blush, €25.08

If you know, you know. These blushes have gone viral for a reason. So pigmented, you only need the smallest amount, and they look absolutely flawless on the skin. I use shade Joy.

Chanel Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream, €46

Not only does this bronzer look amazing on top of make-up, but it also looks amazing with no make-up. It is just so creamy and skin-like, and the product will last you so long so it’s definitely value for money.

Urban Decay Vitamin C All Nighter Setting Spray, €33

You could go deep sea diving in your make-up after using this setting spray and it wouldn’t budge. This is my all time favourite setting spray, I couldn’t live without it!
