MAFS’s April Banbury has a surprisingly affordable £9 lip combination that she swears by

If you ask any celeb about her makeup routine then she’ll likely have a go-to lipstick/liner/gloss combination that she always comes back to. For many it’s a Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk combo. Others are long-time MAC fans. For April Banbury, it’s Carmex and L’Oréal. We love a bargain (beauty) queen.

The Married at First Sight UK star, 32, shared her surprisingly affordable lip trick on Instagram, responding to a fan comment under a recent selfie.

“What lipstick is that April? I really like it?” the follower asked.

April diligently replied: “It’s a rouge lip liner by L’Oréal and Carmex, lovely.”

We’ve hunted down the duo we think April is referring to: L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Lip Liner Couture in 630,£5.99 here, and Carmex Lip Balm,£3.10 here. Together, the two cost under a tenner. Unfortunately April doesn’t expand further on how she creates her signature pout, but from looking at the photo it would seem she lines most of her lips with the L’Oréal liner and then just uses the balm over the top to blend it together and to add shine.

If you aren’t keeping up with this season of MAFS UK, you definitely should be because it’s explosive. Because of the contestants making headlines, it’s prompted plenty of interest into the lives and looks of all of the E4 stars.

Just the other week, old photos of MAFS bride Gemma Rose went viral when a follower shared their amazement at how different Gem looked without the signature red hair colour we’ve seen her wear on the series.

In the selfie shared with her Instagram followers back in July 2021, Gemma looks completely different with short black hair pulled behind her ears. Another snap, posted several weeks earlier, shows Gemma with ginger hair styled in a short bob cut.

Captioned "Natural is BACK", the snap also gives a glimpse at what she looked like with less ink, as a relatively small tattoo on one side of her neck is all that is visible in a plunging floral top.

The public interest isn’t just reserved for the female stars, either. Adrian Sanderson had his share of viral fame last week when an old photo of him with blue hair surfaced. Quite the change from the blonde “boy band” crop we’re used to seeing him wear.

As the series draws to a close, we’ll be keeping an eye out for further transformations from the brides and grooms (and, er, ex-brides and grooms).
