I’m a royal make-up artist and there are loads of budget beauty buys I love – one's only £2 | The Sun


WHEN it comes to make-up, prices range dramatically.

You can end up spending £34 on a lipstick if you shop at Dior, for example, compared to £2 on one from Boots' 17 range.

But how do you know which budget beauty buys are actually worth getting?

Make-up artist Hannah Martin, who masterminded Princess Eugenie's wedding look, opened up to MailOnline about her top pics, starting with Simple's Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Water.

"As a make-up artist, micellar water has always been an essential in my kit," she said.

"It allows for quick changes and effective tidying-up.

"But I use this one myself, too, as a first step before cleansing.

"It very gently dissolves and lifts off make-up, making it the perfect first full facial cleanse to get rid of any residue.

The cleansing water is currently on sale for just £2 on Ocado.

Sticking to the skincare products, Hannah is also a big fan of CeraVe's Moisturising Lotion, which is £9.99 from Superdrug.

"I love this stuff!" she gushed.

"As someone prone to dry skin I need to hydrate my body regularly or else my arms and legs become scaly and even sore at times.

"This cream is one of the best. It's fragrance-free so it doesn't irritate and the moisture lasts and lasts, leaving a subtle glow to the skin without making it feel greasy or oily.

"It's cheaper than other creams but has more active ingredients: it contains three ceramides that protect the skin's barrier."

And as for one of her top make-up picks, Hannah loves Lottie London's £8.95 Diamond Bounce Highlighter, which she gets in the shade Rose Gold.

"I love a little glitter to finish off a make-up look," she smiled.

"The pan is huge so it will last a long time and it can be used in so many different ways.
