What's In My Make-up Bag?

So um, I don't really use a make-up bag, I have a draw in which all of my make-up is stored (and that's a whole other blog post), but essentially it is items that you use everyday, or regularly go back to. So with this in mind, I thought I'd show you what would carry in my make-up bag...

Starting with base, I've been reaching for the ELF mineral infused face primer on days where I know I have a lot going on to ensure my make up lasts. it just glides on creating the perfect canvas for make up. But I do think there are probably better primers on the market, I'm using this up before purchasing another one.

Next is my Tarte amazonian clay foundation, 10/10 for this beauty. It's full coverage without the cake and it's got quite a matte finish so I never feel the need to powder. However to cover any pesky blemishes I use the Collection lasting perfection concealer, a blogger favorite but with good reason. I just wish Collection brought out a wider colour range.

For bringing life back into my face as well as some form of structure I always use my NARS laguna bronzer, this is just an all rounder really and as you can tell, its well loved. It's also pretty long lasting, I've been using this everyday for about a year and its still going strong! I then bring some colour back into my skin using MAC mineralised blush in Warm Soul, a perfect everyday shade that goes with any eye/lip look. 

For brows, nothing quite compares to the Anastasia brow wiz, which is why it's a product I will forever go back to. It gives the best, perfected yet natural looking brows. 

Whatever eye  look I go for, I always have to prime my very oily eyelids (TMI?). The best product to do this with is MAC's painterly paint pot, it's incredibly long lasting! My favorite eye shadow combo at the moment has been MAC All That Glitters over the lid with MAC texture through the crease, they're both fairly neutral everyday shades with a hint of shimmer.Then the mascara that I keep reaching for is the L'oreal false lash telescopic, the thin brush gives a lengthy but defined look and it also holds a curl really well.

For lips I have been loving YSL rouge volupte shine in number 8, it's a balmy/glossy your lips but better shade and the the packaging is insanely beautiful making it difficult not to reach for this on a dull morning. Then for days where I just want a gloss, I've been loving the NYX butterglosses, I have reviews and swatches of them here

So that's everything! I try to switch it up as much as possible, so no doubt this will change very soon. 

Until next time,
