UK Drugstore Make Up Recommendations

When it comes to Boots and Superdrug, there are so many different products and brands to try and look at. When I stepped into Boots for the first time ever, I was shocked at the choice of make up there was and didn't know where to begin. Because of this, I decided to come up with a couple of products to pick up when your in the UK.


First up is something that isn't actually from the drugstore but costs around the same price so I'm going to include it. The Topshop Powder Blush in 'Good Girl' is the first product and is a light pink shade with a hint of shimmer. I didn't know if I was going to enjoy this blush or not but it gives a great natural flushed look and is perfect for a natural make up look. I also have to mention the cute packaging that the Topshop make up comes in.

One thing I love about Boots is that they sell Soap & Glory Make Up Products and one of my favourite products from them is the Soap & Glory Solar Powder Bronzing Powder. When I first brought this Bronzer I used it non stop because it gives a sun kissed bronzed look. I personally love to swirl both shades together to create a natural bronzer shade but if you want a slightly dark contour colour than you can use the dark shade but if you want a lighter shade, than you can apply the lighter shimmer shade.

A brand that can only be found in Superdrug is Make Up Academy which is a brand specialising in affordable make up but has some amazing products. The Make Up Academy Single Eyeshadow in 'Copper' is one of my favourite products from this brand. I couldn't believe how pigmented this eyeshadow was and blends into the lid and crease perfectly. At only £1, I can't recommend this eyeshadow more.

In terms of lip products there is one product that I always turn to. The Collection Cream Puff in 'Fairy Cakes' is a lip cream which dries to a matte finish and is one of the most long lasting products ever. This product glides onto the lips to give a full coverage look and smells like vanilla ice cream and feels smooth and soft on the lips. I will say that this product is slightly drying but is nothing that a lip butter won't fix.

The last product is nail polishes. There is so many great nail polishes from Boots and Superdrug such as Essie but one brand that I always turn back to is Barry M. I own so many of their nail polishes but my favourite is the Barry M Jelly Hi Shine Nail Polish Range. I have so many shades which include Guava, Blue Grape, Rose Hip, Sugar Apple, Kiwi, Sky Blue, Pomegranate, Green Berry and Papaya.

What are your UK drugstore make up recommendations?
