Cosmetics to beat the credit crunch

Perfection for just pounds with new beauty bonanza Who cares about the credit crunch when you can look perfectly pretty for pocket money prices? We've just found out that Tesco has reduced everything in its All About Face range of cosmetics to 99p – or three for £2!

Developed as the cost-conscious alternative to designer names, All About Face was always competitive, offering good quality make-up with a comprehensive selection in different finishes. But now it's half-price - each product used to be £1.98, with three for £5 - meaning you can copy all those catwalk trends for just a few pounds.

For his autumn/winter collection Julien Macdonald went for dark-red lips set against pale complexions. Recreate the trend by trying the range's Shade 11 Lipstick - a plummy claret - along with Foundation in Shades 1 or 2, topping it off with Face Powder for that essential matte look. A hot-off-the-catwalk makeover for only £2!
