Online Makeup Stores You Have to Know About

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Nottingham chapter.

If you’re reading this, our best guess is that you’re at least a little into makeup, right? So, our next question is where are you buying your makeup from and are you sure you’re getting the best deals? Buying your makeup from Boots or Superdrug is fine, Boots have great deals like 3 for 2 on many of their drugstore brands and Superdrug is a great place to go when there’s a sale. Boots, however, don’t always have the best offers when you want to buy a single product and Superdrug don’t stock many of the well-loved brands. However, the internet is somewhere you can get both a good discount and access to many of the popular, Instagram famous brands you didn’t even know you could get in the UK! Without any further ado behold the online makeup stores that you really need to know about.


Okay, first up is the one that everyone probably knows, or has heard of, or even uses, the ‘destination for beauty’, Feelunique.com. FeelUnique always has a good offer on, anything from 15% off to 75% off or even more if you’re browsing on a good day! Whenever I’m looking for a particular beauty product, whether it’s drugstore or high end I always go on FeelUnique first because if anywhere sells a high-end product for an (almost) drugstore price it’s here.


Cultbeauty.co.uk has gained a lot of popularity over the past year, and this is because they sell most of the glamorous brands we see American beauty gurus raving about and get jealous because we assume that we can’t get them over here. Anastasia Beverly Hills? Huda Beauty? Becca? Yes, yes, yes, we can get our hands on all these and the many more luxury brands that we yearn for over on this site.


Next up is the lesser known Beautybay.com but trust us once you’re logged on you will be browsing for hours and filling up your basket as if you’ve got all the money in the world, rather than a student budget (we all do that, right?). Beauty Bay sells a mixed range of different brands from really cheap drugstore to really expensive high-end and everything in between. They also do many of the drugstore brands popular in the US such as L.A. Girl, Gerard Cosmetics, Morphe Brushes and Makeup Geek, and on top of that you’re never too far away from a good bargain!


A lot of us love false eyelashes. I’m an all or nothing kind of person, I either wear absolutely no makeup at all or I wear absolutely everything I own on my face, eyelashes and all. Eyelashes just seem to complete the look, and Falseeyelashes.co.uk certainly know this since their whole website is dedicated to them. Whichever brand you’re looking for, from Ardell’s ‘Demi Wispies’ (classic) to Lilli Lashes in ‘Miami’ (a celebrity favourite) and all the Huda Beauty Lashes, this online makeup store will have you covered. Plus, the delivery charge is only £1.99!  I think we’ve all got as far as the online check out then left our order incomplete because of the shocking £6.99 postage and packing… It is not cute when the delivery actually costs more than the products you’re buying and FalseEyelashes.co.uk definitely gets it.
