Ashley Tisdale releases glowing Illuminate makeup line

Ashley Tisdale doesn't think makeup enthusiasts should spend a lot of money on blush or eyeshadow.

Actress Ashley Tisdale recruited her famous friends to test out her goddess-inspired makeup products.

The 30-year-old star teamed up with BH Cosmetics on shimmering beauty line Illuminate, but before the official launch took place, the gorgeous blonde turned to her former High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens and other friends to help ease her anxiety over stepping into the makeup industry.

“I created it and believe in myself and know what I’m doing, but you still are very vulnerable because you just hope people like it,” she tells PeopleStyle. “When it was fully done, I gave it to my friends, and they just went to (California music festival) Lighting in a Bottle and every single day my girlfriend said they were like, ‘Where’s the beach goddess palette? I need to put it on!'

“They were all using it and Vanessa (Hudgens) was using it, and that’s when I was like, 'I created a really good product that’s awesome'."

Ashley's Illuminate line offers four budget-friendly makeup products, which retail from $9 (£6) to $18 (£12) per item.

Although she made an extra effort to ensure her cosmetic line won't break the bank for customers, she still believes it's important to splash out some extra cash on certain types of makeup products.

“I always feel like if you’re going to spend money do it on moisturiser and foundation (especially La Mer), and I use Armani for foundation,” she notes. “But that’s what I love about my line - for eye shadows and blush and contour, which you use up so quickly, it’s just great to have something that you can get for inexpensive (sic).”

Ashley's Illuminate range includes 12-colour eyeshadow and blush palettes, cream cheek containers doubling as lip tints, and enhancing lip gloss for the perfect pout. The Beach Goddess eyeshadow and blush palette is more daytime oriented while the Night Goddess counterpart offers the best colour combinations for creating the perfect smoky eye look for a night on the town.

All of Ashley's products are currently available to purchase online.
