Savvy Savings: Foundation Samples

Today I thought I'd share with you something that I find very helpful when on a tight budget but want to still try and test the latest makeup! 

As of late, I've been having trouble finding the perfect foundation for my skin type and it has been increasingly difficult to find that flawless base. Therefore, I don't want to be forking out £20 every time I'd like to try something new, for it to just disappoint me! 

That's where I've discovered, samples! I've been going up to high end beauty counters and asking for samples of the foundation that I'd like to try, this is great as it's free! However, I know a lot of people get very cautious around asking for samples from a counter as some of the staff can be a bit snobby, now I have found this a couple of times but at the end of the day, it's their job and you are aloud to ask for a sample, it's normal! 

Up above, in my oh-so-glamourous photograph, I've got (from left to right) Mac Mineralise Moisture Foundation, Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation and Chanel Vitalumie Foundation. As the majority of you will know, these foundations are on the pricier side, so this is great that you can trial them for free! I've also found that I only like two out of the three and therefore, it was important for me to have gotten these samples.

This is also great if it's the end of the month and you've got a few days before you get paid because as I said above, you can still try and test the latest make up but for free!
