    1. This eyeliner and volumising mascara set will perfectly define your eyes and still cost you less than a tenner.

    Amazon / Via

    It's got an average rating of 4.3 stars, and customers particularly like that the mascara volumises without making their lashes go all clumpy. The eye marker is super precise and designed to last all day long, plus it's fast drying so there's no risk of you accidentally smudging it while doing the rest of your makeup.

    Price: £9.99

    2. This blush and bronzer duo has been reviewed over 230 times and has a pretty impressive 4.4-star average.

    Amazon / Via

    These are both very lightweight and buildable meaning you're not at risk of accidentally overdoing it (is there anything worse than stepping into natural light and realising your "golden" bronzer look is actually thick and streaky?) The duo is available in three skin tone options – light, medium, and dark.

    Price: £6.44 for medium duo pictured

    3. These brushes will cover your everyday makeup look with ease, and did I mention that 82% of reviewers gave them five stars?

    Amazon / Via

    You'll get an eyeshadow crease brush, a blush brush, a highlighter fan brush, and a foundation brush. It works out to pretty great value for money at just over £3 per brush! Reviewers praise how soft they are and say that they're of a really high quality.

    Price: £12.87

    4. This 4.5-star rated cleansing foam is perfect for dry and sensitive skin thanks to the aloe vera it contains.

    Amazon / Via

    If your skin is dry, it can be hard to find a cleanser that will clean your skin and remove water-soluble makeup without stripping away moisture. Customers praise it for how gentle it is on their skin and say you don't need to use very much of it, which means this multipack will definitely last you for a long while!

    Price: £10.29 for six 150ml bottles

    5. If you prefer a non-foaming cleanser, how about this nourishing cleansing milk?

    Amazon / Via

    While its formula is quite gentle, it's still very effective and makes quick and easy work of removing makeup. It's enriched with water lily extract which is an ingredient known for its soothing and calming effect on stressed and irritated skin, which makes it perfect if your skin errs on the sensitive side (although FYI, it's suitable for ALL skin types).

    Price: £11 for four 200ml bottles

    6. This nude eyeshadow quad will help you to create the perfect understated eye look for the daytime, and a ~going out~ look for the evenings too.

    Amazon / Via

    These shades are pretty universally flattering, and once applied they'll stay vibrant for up to 12 hours. There's a mix of satin and shimmer finishes that you can layer on for a bolder look, or swipe just one shade from the quad along your eye for something simpler.

    Prie: £9.99

    7. Some toners can be pretty rough on the skin, but this one is super gentle and contains almond blossom extract, which soothes and moisturises.

    Amazon / Via

    This will catch anything on your skin that your cleanser didn't quite get off, and judging by the 4.5-star average rating it does a pretty good job of it! People who have bought this say it leaves their skin feeling super clean, refreshed, and soft.

    Price: £10.32 for four 200ml bottles

    8. These contouring sticks will give you ~definition~ and seriously glowing skin at the same time.

    Amazon / Via

    You'll get a bronzing stick and a highlighting stick, and both have a super lightweight texture that makes them really easy to blend with your fingers. Just swipe them on, pat them in a bit, and you're done! The highlighter stick is particularly good if you want to add a bit of shimmer but are scared of looking too sparkly.

    Price: £2.98

    9. This lip kit includes a liner and gloss that deliver a perfect shiny pout without the annoying stickiness that lipgloss can cause.

    Amazon / Via

    The gloss is really moisturising with a creamy finish, while the liner is non-transfer and effortlessly glides onto the lips thanks to its soft texture. The kit is available in eight different shades, but the one pictured called "Effortless Look" definitely lives up to its name when it comes to creating a pretty yet natural-looking effect.

    Price: £2.78

    10. This trio of eyeshadows will cost you less than a pound each, but you'll get some seriously expensive-looking results after using them.

    Amazon / Via

    These have won lots of praise from reviewers for the fact they really do last for ages once put on, and are easy to apply as well. There's a variety of trios to choose from depending on what colours you're going for, but the "Sunset Beauty" one pictured is particularly flattering with its warm-toned, wearable shades!

    Price: £2.90

    11. This berry-coloured matte lipstick lasts for up to 12 HOURS and you get an accompanying gloss for if you want to amp up the look even more.

    Alongside its impressive staying power, the lipstick will keep your lips hydrated for up to four hours after application. The lip gloss is also moisturising, so you get to enjoy a bold lip look without any discomfort. Judging from the rave reviews, it's 4.4-star average from 330 ratings, AND the fact it costs you less than £3, it's hard to find a fault with this lil' kit.

    Price: £2.81

    12. This eyeshadow palette contains ten pigmented shades that, once applied, look way more expensive than they actually are.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers love the colour payoff of these and the great variety of shades included. Once applied, the colours should keep their intensity for twelve hours(!) which is more than long enough for going to the office and then heading out afterwards.

    Price: £3.03

    13. This pair of lip crayons are bold enough to brighten up your look even on grey, rainy days (i.e. pretty much every day in Britain).

    Amazon / Via

    The duo contains one matte and one shiny lip crayon that can be worn separately or together. The matte lipstick delivers an even colour with a smooth and creamy texture, while the lip gloss has a comfortable-to-wear jelly texture that hydrates your lips. There's ten different shades of duos available!

    Price: £6.42

    15. Pop some of this micellar water on a cotton round, wipe it across your face, and voila! You'll get off your eyeliner without having to vigorously rub at your eyes.

    Amazon / Via

    Customers (unsurprisingly) love what good value for money this is (with each generously-sized 300ml bottle working out to less than £3 each). But it's not just the price that people who have tried this love – they say it really does do a good job of removing makeup and dirt, and they like that it makes their skin feel refreshed rather than dry, tight, or greasy.

    Price: £8.44 for four 400ml bottles
