The Best Make-Up Buys On The Shelves Right Now

The best lips, eyes, base and nail buys, as chosen by our panel of judges and woman&home readers

woman&home’s Best In Beauty Awards are back for 2015, rounding up your favourite beauty products of the past year. The winners are soon to be announced but in the mean time we take a look at the best make-up items, as chosen by you!

From base and foundation that blends seamlessly into your skin giving you a completely natural look to those daring lip colours you want to stand out, we’ve got it covered.

Buying make-up can be quite overwhelming. Department stores are stacked floor to ceiling with different brands, colours, coverages and solutions. We’ve all fallen in to the trap of arriving at a make-up counter and buying up everything they tell us we need only to get it home and be bitterly disappointed with our purchases.

So, before your next visit to the make-up counter, have a good flick through this gallery because these items have been tried, tested and recommended by our trusty w&h readers. But you don’t just have to take their word for it – we’ve also recruited eight reliable judges. We have a dermatologist, a make up artist , a business woman alongside five more trusted names – all giving their verdict on the products that no-one should be without. Meet our Best in Beauty make-up judging panel…
