So today I am going to talk about my Top 5 beauty must haves under £5. There isn't much these days you can buy for fiver, so if you're able to get an amazing beauty product I'd say you're doing pretty well. All of these products have been staples in my beauty routine and each one of them deserved a mention in this post. 

LA GIRL Pro Conceal - £5

So the first product I'm going to mention has been a staple in my makeup bag for over a year now. The LA GIRL Pro Conceal is my absolute favourite concealer in the world. Before this I used the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer that everyone raves about and yes I really liked it. However whilst it was great for covering up blemishes, I found it hard to get a shade light enough for me to use as a highlight. So I decided I would opt to start using a white concealer for highlighting, leading me to purchase the Kat Von D Concealer in the shade 'White Out'. Whilst I absolutely loved this concealer at £20 a pop it wasn't really fitting into my student budget for the amount I was using it. Cue my discovery of the LA GIRL Pro Conceal, this stuff is amazing. I can hardly believe it is only a fiver. It is so thick and has amazing coverage. I use the shades 'Highlight' and 'Porcelain' for highlighting and I don't think I will ever use another concealer again. The formula of this concealer is great and it lasts all day without creasing. It's also really good to use an eyeshadow base and the tube lasts for ages I find. I get mine from BTY in Belfast. But you can also pick it up online.

Makeup Geek Individual Eyeshadows - £4.95

For my next pic I chose the Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I had been wanting to try these out for so long and then nearly 2 years ago with my 18th birthday money, I bit the bullet and bought myself a Z Palette. Since then I have been filling it with all my favourite single eyeshadows and had it completed within about six months. The majority of eyeshadows in the palette are the ones pictured above which are the Makeup Geek Single Eyeshadows. These can be purchased from BeautyBay and there are around 100 different shades to choose from in a range of different finishes. I have pictured above my absolute favourite Makeup Geek eyeshadows of all time. These shades are so versatile and can be used to create a range of different looks. Pictured above is; Shimma Shimma, Latte, Frappe, Cocoa Bear and Bitten. Shimma Shimma is amazing used as a highlighter as well. These eyeshadows are some of the most pigmented I have tried and you really don't need to use much to create a gorgeous eye look. 

SoSuMe Eyelashes - £5

These are probably the biggest bargain on this whole list. If you are from Ireland especially you will probably have heard of SoSuMe/Suzanne Jackson, blogger and creator of SoSu Makeup Brand. When I saw that Suzanne had launched a range of eyelashes exclusively for Primark for only £5 each, I knew that I had to get all of them. My favourite styles are Milan and Paris and they are my most worn eyelashes by far. If you are like me and are partial to a night out in town you'll know how hard it can be to get good eyelashes that last all night and more importantly not to lose them. I am forever forgetting where I put my eyelashes after a night out and having to invest in more. Therefore, it's great that these lashes are so cheap so you don't have to be worried about losing them. These eyelashes are far better than many high end eyelash brands i have used which are usually around 4 times the price. I use them with the duo eyelash glue and they stay on all night. I've had so many compliments whilst wearing these from people asking where they are from. If you see these in Primark definitely pick them up while you can.

KIKO Smart Fusion Lip Pencils - £2.50

These lip pencils are honestly such a good dupe for Mac Lip Liners which I know are uber popular. I have about 10 of them in total in a variety of different shades and I use them almost everyday. I bought them in the KIKO store but you can also get them online where this is over 30 different shades available. There is such a wide variety of nude colours which I love cause nude lipsticks are my absolute fave. The formula is so creamy and they are not drying on the lips at all. If you are looking for a good lip liner I would definitely recommend these. My favourite shades are 504, 505 and 515. 

Garnier Summer Body (Deep) - £5

So for my last product I've decided to go down a different route than makeup. I was really torn whether to include this or the Garnier Micellar Water. But I decided to go with this gradual tan cause it has been part of my beauty regime for about 6 years now. I remember using this a lot when I was in school and I still love it now. Usually when i put on a fresh coat of tan it will look good but after a few days the colour will start to fade. That's when this product comes in I use this to freshen up my tan and give myself a golden glow when my tan might be starting to wear off. Even in Winter I would use it on it's own if I'm not really feeling like tanning and it gives me an amazing glow whilst moisturising my skin at the same time. I use the deep colour as I like quite a dark tan however it also comes in light, just to give your skin a slight glow. 

That's all for now, thanks for reading!
