A few weeks ago I posted about a recent Poundland purchase of mine - a brand new make-up bag. After that post a few readers wanted to see what I have in my everyday make-up bag so I thought I would give it a go!
I thought I would leave out the skincare items I pop in here and focus on what make-up I use on a daily basis. If you would like to see what skincare I use on a daily basis leave me a comment or send me a tweet and I will get to work on writing about my day to day skincare products! Below each product I have provided links for those that I have reviewed!
MAC Prep & Prime, Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser and Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
First... lets talk primers. I like to keep a mix of a few primers in my bag so I have a bit of variety. I have a sample of the MAC Prep and Prime which I love. It is almost like a moisturiser and doesn't leave that silicone texture behind for those of you that aren't the biggest fan of that. If you don't mind the silicone texture of some primers then Baby Skin by Maybelline and Photo Finish by Smashbox are great choices. Personally I think Baby Skin is a much cheaper dupe for the Smashbox Photo Finish.
Natural Collection Concealer and Derma V10 Light Tinted Eye Roll On
Although I have been playing about with the Makeup Revolution concealer palettes, which I will be reviewing soon, I chuck two concealers in my make-up bag for ease. I have the Natural Collection concealer in cool which I love. It does the job and for a fantastic £1.99 you really can't argue. I also use the Derma V10 light tinted eye roll on for those days where I look like I haven't slept!
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
For those of you that follow my Twitter you will know that my foundation collection is much larger than it has to be. I think the current count is 10! I tend to bounce between the ones I have in my collection depending on how my skin is that day and what type of finish I am after. However the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation forever remains in my make-up bag. The finish is lovely, the scent is heavenly and the coverage is natural and matches my skin tone perfectly.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
My powder collection is even larger than my foundation collection... I dread to think how many I have however I have begun to use up some in my collection which I am proud of! The Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is my go to powder. It keeps everything in place and is so affordable. You also get a pretty decent amount of product!
MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter
The MUA Undress Your Skin highlighter is a new one to my collection. I have a review coming soon so I won't go to in depth about my thoughts however I will say for a newbie to highlighting it has been a great little addition to my make-up bag.
Makeup Revolution Blush Lacquer and Powder Blush
Much like foundations and pressed powders my collection is forever expanding... I tend to change my blushes between the seasons however currently I am using these two blushes by Makeup Revolution. The first is a liquid blush by Revolution which I use as a base in the shade Desire. The next is a powder blush by Makeup Revolution in the shade Sugar.
MAC Zoom Lash and Soap & Glory Thick & Fast
I'm luckily blessed with long and full lashes however I do like having a bit of choice with what I want to use on my lashes. I am a massive fan of both the MAC Zoom Lash and the Soap & Glory Thick and Fast mascara. The MAZ Zoom Lash makes my lashes look even longer and beautifully separated. The Soap & Glory Thick & Fast mascara fives the appearance of fuller looking lashes. The combination of the to of these mascaras is absolutely beautiful!
Natural Collection Lipstick in Pink Mallow
This Natural Collection lipstick in Pink Mallow is a new one to my collection. It is a my lips but better colour and very affordable at £1.99. Again a review of this lipstick will be coming soon however I can say it is cheap and cheerful enough that I can chuck it in to my make-up bag and bag without worrying too much about breaking it!
L'Oreal Super Liner Brow Artist
My favourite liner for doing my brows is the L'Oreal Super Liner Brow Artist. The addition of gel on one end really makes it handy for day to day make-up... particularly when you're running out the door!
Makeup Revolution Amazing Lengths Mascara
Finally I set my brows with the Makeup Revolution Amazing Lengths mascara in clear. It is perfect for setting brows and is very affordable!
So there you have it! A very long post but I hope you all enjoyed taking a sneak peak in to my make-up bag! Are there any items I use that you use too? What is in your make-up bag? Let me know in the comments below!
