Refresh your makeup bag

Are you in the mood for a little bit of a makeup overhaul but your bank balance is feeling a little worse-for-wear after Christmas? Not a problem. Using your UNiDAYS® discount you can get 10% off at House of Fraser - new makeup alert. I have picked a couple of my favourite products for all you beauty-buffs out there.


I think that a good place to start with a makeup refresh is a brand-spanking-new foundation. One of my personal faves is this Clinique 2-in-1 Foundation and Concealer. For under £25, I think it’s an absolute steal. Next up is this beaut Laura Geller Baked Gelato Vivid Swirl Blush; personally, I’m more of a blush over bronzer kinda girl’ but rest assured, House of Fraser have a fabulous range of both. I think this blush is perfect for adding a subtle hint of colour to your face. Finally, this Benefit High Beam Highlighter is dreamy if you want to give your cheekbones a little bit of oomph.

With eyes, I think 3 staples include a palette, an eyeliner and a mascara. For the eyeshadow palette, I just couldn’t resist the heavily sought after Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette. Who in their right mind would say no to 10% off a Naked palette? With this, you can be sure to achieve the perfect smoky eye. For the eyeliner I was thinking speed, so this Clinique Intense Quickliner is right up my street. It has been made to glide on and stay put all day. What more could you want? For the mascara I was only ever going to go for one product - this Benefit Roller Lash is my favourite mascara ever, ever, ever. Honestly, just try it! Article_Eyes


Taking care of lips is important, so why not top up your makeup bag with a good lipbalm. This Kiehl's No Shine Lip Balm is made so that it doesn’t interfere with your lip colour; it’s colourless and has no shine so it’s super easy, and at £7.20 it’s even easier to justify. My next lip product of choice had to be a lipstick - this Tom Ford Lips and Boys Lipstick is the ultimate makeup bag refresh treat. But hey, lipstick is a girl's bestfriend! Finally, if you’re after a little bit of on-the-go shine, this NARS Lip Gloss is ideal; my personal fave is ‘sweet dream’. Pucker up! Article_Lips
