If you are all just as nosey as I am, then you LOVE posts like these. Ones where you get to delve into peoples makeup bags and see what items they use on a daily basis. I thought I would share what is in my makeup bag..I hope you enjoy :)
My make up bag is from Harrods as you may be able to see (durr). I bought this around a year ago and I am still very much in love with it, though I am not too sure if it is still in stores. The best thing about it, is that it has on it every stereotypical London "thing" you can think of. :)
Let's get onto the makeup. The first few things I have in my bag is of course mascara...a staple in every girl's makeup bag. This particular one is one of my favouirtes. It is Maybelline's falsies volume express mascara, it lengthens and thickens lashes just as you would want and doesn't cost a fortune. I also have my l'oreal liquid super liner eyeliner pen. I love eyeliner pens recently, I feel you get more precision especially if you aren't too good at applying eyeliner on the upper lids. Other than upper lid eyeliner, I have normal liner that I use in the waterline. This is Rimmel's exaggerate eyeliner. I prefer roll up eyeliner to ones you have to sharpen yourself as I feel it is just too messy and they break more easily too.
Onto the face bits and bobs! :) One thing I cannot live without is my Elizabeth Arden, 8 hour cream. I have nearly ran out this and it has been going strong for over a year now. I mainly use it on my lips as an alternative to a regular lipbalm as this one is much more moisturising. The great thing about this cream is that you can use it for dry patches on your body and even on burns. The next product is one I live by. This is Dior's BB creme. I have been through 4 bottles of the stuff within a year and a bit and I really can't find anything better. I'm not a massive fan of full coverage makeup as I don't like the feel of it on my face but this is perfect for giving a light coverage and colour correcting too. I LAV IT! Rimmel's stay matte powder is a staple of mine and has been for years now. I have tried so many different powders and for the price of this one, you cannot go wrong!!
As for concealers, I have two that will always be in my makeup bag. MAC Studio finish concealer has amazing coverage and is great for brightening up the area around the eyes, however I feel it can get a little cakey. I think this is personally a great concealer for blemishes! My other concealer is slightly darker and nearer to my skin tone. This is Benefit's Boi-ing concealer. This also has brilliant coverage, if not better than the MAC one. This concealer is also antibactieral so it makes you feel less guilty about wearing makeup on a very bad and very spotty skin day.
I do have my favourite eyeshadow palettes but they can be a right nightmare carrying around all the time, so they stay away from my everyday makeup bag. Maybellines Color Tattoo's are just simply amazing products. You can use them as a primer for eyeshadows such as the Rimmel one pictured below, but you can also apply them on their own as a wash of colour on the lids. I also use the shade Permanent Taupe for my eyebrows...try it! :P
I also have regular eyeshadow primer, this one by Urban Decay is amazing. It makes eyeshadow last all day and you don't even have to use that much of it. This one bottle has lasted me over a year and a half! I also have MAC harmony, which I use for contouring. This one I feel is slightly too dark for me now though (sad times). I finally have a duo eyeshadow palette. I won't go into too much detail on this baby as I have written a blog post on this a couple months back, which you can read here.
So that is basically what is in my makeup bag and items I reach for day to day. I hope you enjoyed reading! What item of makeup do you reach for on a daily basis?
