10 high street beauty heroes you’ll want in your make-up kit

You don’t have to spend thousands to have the best of the best products in your kit. Ahead of our much anticipated IMAGE Beauty Festival Here are 10 high street beauty pieces that punch above their weight and sit neatly with their luxe counterparts…


Style skills

I always say, there’s more skill involved in buying vintage, charity shop, high street and luxury clothing and styling them all together to make a unique look than there is in rocking into Dior with €20,000 and coming out in head-to-toe designer.

And the exact same can be said for beauty. The best, most unique and most effective beauty looks can come from a mix of high end and budget make-up. Here are ten products that are extremely good value and work just as hard for you as any luxe brands will.

Jess Wright X Dealz Babydoll lashes, €1.50
IsaDora Twist Up Gloss in Fiery Fuchsia, €12.95
Penneys PS… Beauty Aqua Lash mascara, €3
Misslyn Cosmetics Shade & Blend eyeshadow brush, €4.95
Boots No7 HydraLuminous Concealer, €18
Sleek MakeUp Bronze Block in Light, €9.49
ELF Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Gold, €17.45
Note Cosmetics Mineral Foundation, €12.95
MegaGlo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighters, €5.95
NYX Hydra Touch Primer, €15
