What's In My Makeup Bag



I don't usually have my makeup stored in my makeup bag, I keep my makeup in my makeup drawers at home, but when I travel this is how i take my makeup, I use a large Ted Baker makeup bag as I do find I like to take quite a lot with me, especially if I don't know what makeup I am going to be wearing or for how long I'll be going for, so I will warn you there is a lot of makeup in here, and the reason to why I take more than one of the same product is simply I have no idea what makeup look to go for! So here we go...


Base -

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation '04'
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation '52 Vanilla'
YSL Touche Eclat Foundation 'BD20'
I like to take more than one foundation depending on what kind of makeup look I'm going for, I do usually include NARS Sheer Glow whenever I go out but I wanted to include a drugstore foundation also, I love all of these foundations and they all give a light to medium coverage, make you look healthy, dewy and glowing, also are good shades for me, being yellow-neutral undertoned.

YSL Touche Eclat Concealer '02'
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer '20'
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer 'NC20'
Depending on what I am covering and how much coverage I need from the concealer is how I decide which one I need to wear, the YSL is good for highlighting and brightening, Maybelline is good for a medium coverage for either the face or under eye, and MAC is good for giving full coverage either on the face and under the eyes also


Powders, Cheeks & Bronzers -

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder '01'
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder 'Translucent'
I'm not really the person to powder as I love having a glowing-dewy finish, but you have to be safe and still carry on, I don't really love the Rimmel one as it doesn't keep me matte for long, I find I have to keep topping it up, and I use the Laura Mercier product to set my under eye concealer as it also brightens 

Sleek Blush 'Flushed'
Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Balm 'Plumped Up Peony'
I don't wear blush much, but these 2 blushers are my favourite if I want to wear one, dark plum berry shades!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick 'Pink Quartz'
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish 'Soft & Gentle'
These are my favourite highlighters as they make you look really glowing and give the most amazing sheen, I am definitely a highlighter girl..

Urban Decay Flushed Palette 'Strip'
Ideally out of all of these I only should bring this palette as it has a bronzer, blush and highlighter in one, but me being me I love to have options in my makeup! It's also really handy having a mirror

Nars 'Laguna' Bronzer
All time favourite bronzer! Not orange and looks really natural, also my first ever Nars product


Eyes -

Mac eyeshadows 'All That Glitters, Woodwinked, Cranberry
By Terry Cream Shadow Stick 'Misty Rock'
Maybelline Gel Liner
I love wearing shimmery and glittery eye shadows, and these have been my favourite colours recently, I also love my Naked Palette which I would also take with me but won't fit into my makeup bag. Depending on what look I am going for, whether I want to wear eye liner or not this is the one I love to wear, it's very easy to apply and doesn't budge

Lancome Grandiose Mascara
This is just the current mascara I am using, it lifts and adds volume to your eyelashes, I also take eyelash curlers but I thought that was boring to show


Lips -

Soap And Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick 'Nudist'
Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector '04'
Mac Lipsticks 'Jubilee' & 'Rebel'
I know this bit seems less crazy and over the top as I know most girls will take more than one lip product, I like to have a variety of lip products from lipglosses to lipsticks and different shades from light pinks to dark purples, all just depends on my look but I would highly recommend all of these products as I have relied on them for a long time!

What top 3 products are in your makeup bag?
