Our beauty blogger of the week is the stunning Laura Finnegan of the fantastic beauty and lifestyle blog, Life, Laughs and Laura.
22-year-old Laura, who is a self-confessed beauty, fashion and fitness fanatic, eagerly shares her tips, advice and experiences with us, and we love her for it!
Life, Laughs and Laura is the perfect go-to guide for students or girls-on-a-budget as Laura knows all too well how important it is to be able to glam-up without breaking the bank.
The lovely Laura gave us a sneak peek into her make-up bag and revealed her personal faves and top tips.
1. What is your best budget beauty buy?
The new Essence Hello Autumn Eyeshadow Palette's. I have really oily eyelids and these are the only budget eyeshadows that will last all day on me. The colours are amazing too!
2. What is your top make-up tip?
Less is more! We all get those days when you wake up with the biggest of all spots on your face, but the less concealer you use, the better coverage you get. It sounds unbelievable, but it is true! If you layer on the concealer it makes it more obvious that you are trying to hide something.
3. Most girls have a much-loved lipstick – what's yours?
My favourite is from Seventeen in the shade "Just a Fling". I always hated nude lipsticks as they drain me out, but this is just the perfect nude. It gives some much needed moisture to my lips too and it lasts really well.
4. What was your very first perfume and what are you currently wearing?
My first Perfume was from So.., a brand I've actually rediscovered recently and am loving, but at the moment my favourite perfume is between the Ted Baker "Mia" and the Suddenly "Diamonds" from Lidl – a dead dupe for Hugo Boss.
5. You're only allowed to use three make-up products for the rest of your life… what are they?
Revlon ColourStay Foundation as it covers everything!
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder as I'm an oily skin gal.
L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara as I have the worst lashes in the world!
