Fact: being a makeup lover is an expensive way of life. We just love makeup products SO much that we're absolutely willing to spend all of our hard-earned money on them, and nobody can convince us otherwise.

Splurging out on the odd luxury beauty product here and there is definitely a treat, but it can also be a TOTAL bank-breaker.

So, we took it upon ourselves to hunt down the best beauty dupes on the internet, for those times when you want to look glam AF without spending your whole life savings on an expensive foundation.

See which affordable products we're lusting over, below...

Made for those days when you can't afford to keep up with the Kardashians, the BH Cosmetics Blacklight Highlighter palette has got you covered. Get your glow on for a fraction of the price of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit.amazon.co.uk

Who doesn't love a lightweight foundation that still boasts really good coverage? We definitely do. Try The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation on for size - it's just like the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder one - but cheaperthebodyshop.com

Struggling to survive until payday? You still deserve to glow to the gods, even when highlighter is at the very bottom of your shopping list. For a sheen that'll be sure to blind your colleagues sitting opposite you, try the Colourpop Mermaid Glow, which gives the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter a run for its money.colourpop.com

Get that contour on fleek with a little help from a trusty contour palette. If you want to really treat yourself, the ABH Contour Kit is the way to go, otherwise the Sleek Contour palette will be your new BFF. You really can't go wrong.amazon.co.uk

Urban Decay & Cover FX
6 of 13

After you've spend hours doing your make up (while lip syncing to some total music bangers) the last thing you're going to want is it all to slide off when you're sweating it out on the dance-floor. So, stock up on the VS Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray. It works just like the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray. Bingo.beautybay.com

Esteu00e9 Lauder and Max Factor
7 of 13

Finding the right full coverage foundation is hard enough, let alone trying to find one that doesn't cost an arm and leg. But, rest assured that we've got you covered with the Max Factor Ageless Foundation - it's cheap, it's cheerful, and it'll give you Hollywood-worthy skin.amazon.co.uk

YSL and Isadora
8 of 13

Had a big night out? We bet you'll want some help covering up those dark circles (we know we do!). We recommend dabbing the IsaDora Light Touch concealer or the Light UP Brightening Cushion concealer (if Light Touch is out of stock) under your eyes to freshen up your face. Now, go forth and slay.feelunique.com

Urban Decay and Revolution
9 of 13

A smoky eye is a key for a big night out with your favourite gal pals. While we adore the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette, if you're after something cheap and cheerful, try the Revolution Eyeshadow Iconic Smokey Pallet, which comes in at just £6. Yes, reallysuperdrug.com{:target=_blank :rel=noopener noreferrer}

Huda beauty and Makeup revolution
10 of 13

Hude Beauty's eyeshadow palette is SO bloody beautiful, but it's not so kind to our bank accounts. That's where the I Heart Revolution Eyeshadow Palette comes in to save the day. superdrug.com

MAC and Rimmel
11 of 13

Every woman has GOT to have a classic red lippy in her makeup kit. While MAC's Ruby Woo is one of our favourites, the Rimmel Kate Moss in Kiss of Life ranks in pretty high, too.amazon.co.uk

bobbi brown dupes
12 of 13

Need to nail that eyeliner wing in the cheapest way possible? Stock up on the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. It glides on just like the Bobbi Brown Long Lasting Eyeliner one.superdrug.com

Kevin Aucoin and OFRA
13 of 13

Mascara is an absolute makeup essential, especially when you're hungover AF and need to look wide awake for that very important morning work meeting. We love the OFRA Waterproof Mascara (which is in short supply) or the essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara - they're both very similar to the Kevin Aucoin Expert Mascara.amazon.co.uk
