'Fragrance Direct' is a fab site with discounted make up, very reliable and it also has genuine discount MAC make up, MAC is seen as 'some of the best' so to speak but in my experience with it I find some products work and some don't it's more of a brand your paying for, for example I love their lipsticks and hate their blush (especially the cremeblend ones) best to be versatile, Sleek make up is cheap and amazing quality plus there is a good colour range and some funky colours for modelling, Tesco are also bringing out a new line called 'Vivo' which is amazingly cheap and the quality is very good just like the MUA range that superdrug (which starts at £1 or upto £5 for the pro range) and also E.L.F is particularly good for basics (the studio range is usually the best)

Sorry to babble on but thought it might be helpful for you and I have a beauty blog (www.victoria-gabrielle.com) and deal with alot of make-up and see new launches through PR companies so I have tried alot of make up from alot of brands both popular and unknown and it's usually the unknown ones that everyone skips past that are the best! x

Don't get caught up with brand snobbery!  I'm a make up artist and I use a huge variety of make up including some of the cheaper brands that you get in Superdrug!  The bonus for me being that they don't test on animals, but that's just my preference.

It's more important to have a selection of colours for different styles, for example some browns and pinks for a natural look and then maybe charcoal, silver, navy for a darker more smokey look.  It's how you apply it that's more important and remember that strong lights can bleach out a lot of the colours so make sure you apply more coats.

Thankyou. I do have a few eyeshadows from superdrug its the foundation im more wondering about and blushers. I have been advised about revlon colourstay foundation by a make up artist i know, Also I would like a nice sleek shimmery blusher I have tried a few but some tend to look slightly dirty and glittery instead of a shimmer x

I have to say, Estee Lauder double wear foundation is excellent!

As for wanting a shimmering blusher, I think you would be better using a matt blusher and then applying a highlighter as you can can apply it above your cheekbones and below your brows.  You can then apply as much as desired depending on the look you want, but your whole face wont look shiny!

Hope this helps  :-)

Cara I always use Revlon Colorstay foundation its my savior and if you like pink blushers then I bought and currently use Sleek's Mediterranean Collection blusher in "Santorini" and it is absolutely AM-AZ-IN!!

Don't be scared with the brightness of it in the packaging though as it doesn't go on bright pink at all far from it.
