Luckily for make-up fans, there’s plenty of experts on the case.
Beauty buff Ellie Self has a seven-step, seven-product routine to create the ultimate full face with Primark make-up.
The best bit? You can overhaul your make-up bag with them for just £20.
The content creator quipped: ”If you can get an affordable dupe then why the hell not?!”

I’m a Primark addict and know what every beauty product is a dupe for
The 25-year-old advised to start your make-up with Primark’s Vitamin Enriched Moisturising Primer because “it’s so moisturising that you can use it under make-up or just as skincare”.
The £4.50 tub is a dupe for Bobbi Brown’s £49 Vitamin Enriched Face Base and is designed to make your skin a smooth and hydrated canvas to layer make-up on.
Next in Ellie’s dupe make-up routine is foundation.
She said that the budget store’s Double Coverage Matte Foundation “gave her confidence” when her skin flared up.

The Nottingham-based content creator said: “It gave me confidence when I was going through a breakout phase.
“It covers spots up totally and has such a nice finish.
“It’s a dupe for the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation which is one of my favourites.”
Primark’s foundation costs a cool £5 and contains skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid and spf 15.
Ellie then reaches for the budget shop’s Foundation Pressed Powder which has “buildable coverage” and a matte finish.
It costs £2.50 but was dubbed “value for money” by the beauty buff because you can use it to set liquid foundation, as well as on its own.
She explained: “Yeah it’s technically a foundation, but it’s really good for layering on top of foundation too.
“I like a lot of coverage so it's perfect for me.”
Ellie then carves her face with the £2.50 Foundation & Contour Stick – which is multi-use like the powder.
Beauty sleuths on Tik Tok have theorised the contour stick is a dupe for Kiko Milano's version.
For blusher, she uses the Primark Cream Blush first – which is a dupe for Charlotte Tilbury’s Beauty Light Wand in Pinkgasm – and layers it with the High Pigment Powder Blush.
She said: “The cream blusher is a dupe for Charlotte Tilbury and as we all know, that’s very expensive.
“Both blush products are good for a full base as they’re shimmery too, so you don’t need to add a highlighter on top.”
The Cream Blush costs £4.50, while its powdered partner is just £1.50.
Ellie finishes her look with a lick of gloss, opting for Primark’s £1.50 High Gloss in Pink Macaroon.
