Margot Robbie

Actress Margot Robbie is obviously STUNNING and her skin is always glowing. Her regular makeup artist, Pati Dubroff, revealed that she regularly uses EX1 Cosmetics’ Invisiwear Foundation when doing Margot’s makeup, which is great because it’s seriously affordable. You can pick up your shade for just €14.95 in Boots Liffey Valley now, or if you’re not near there it can be purchased on Boots.ie. Rumour has it Adele is also a huge fan.

Gigi Hadid

Model and flawless human Gigi Hadid isn’t a stranger to a drugstore foundation. Her makeup artist, Patrick Ta, used Fit Me Dewy + Smooth foundation on her at the Met Gala, which literally costs less than a tenner. We need.
