Inside My Make-Up Bag…..

Make-Up…. a girl’s best friend! Well besides diamonds 😉 The second most important bag in our life, under our handbag… this little bag is kept tightly locked in our purse at all times for that last minute emergency touch up. It can help us create a completely different look for all sorts of events. Sleek and sophisticated for a day in the office or edgy and mysterious for a night out with the girls. I’m sure I am not the only one who has tried several different brands and products on the hunt for the perfect make up and beauty items.

Here is what is in my bag up bag at the moment, just some things I am loving and thought you might too 🙂

I discovered my love for the Too Faced brand a few years ago. They are a reasonable price point and are also available at Kit Cosmetics.

This Queen sized mascara is simply luscious, giving you huge, volumous lashes that go for miles. The all over chocolate face bronzer is great for when you have a bit of extra colour on the rest of your body and just need your face to be a bit darker, I just throw it on over my foundation and I am good to go.

The leopard bronzer, well of course I love this because I am obsessed with leopard print but also because of it’s pearl tones, they shimmer on your cheeks, perfect for day and night so I don’t need two different bronzers. Also a sneaky little trick- it can double as an eye shadow, even better!

Napoleon Primer- What Can I say… Remember ladies… It is a crime not to prime! This honestly is a MUST HAVE!! It helps to keep your make up locked in all day and gives your foundation a flawless look. You will actually be saving money by using this primer as it helps to conserve foundation and stops you from having to re apply.

China Doll Foundation- I find this is the best out of the Napoleon range for my skin, as it’s the perfect consistancy and look for me. It gives a full coverage but doesn’t look too heavy, and it has a gorgeous matte look without shine. I have tried plenty of brands and definitely find this to be the best, it’s a good price range and lasts for a few months.

Chanttecaille Highlighting Powder… wow!! I discovered this gem last year and wish I had found it sooner! I only use this at night, but it’s amazing for highlighting and contouring your cheekbones and giving you a glowing look, especially in the night lighting… gorgeous!

Garnier BB Cream- This is a recent addition to my make-up bag, and what a find!! I use this on the weekends if I don’t feel like wearing a lot of make-up but still want to cover up those dark eyes, or uneven marks. It gives your skin a lovely natural dewy look and is great to throw on if you are just popping down to the shops or out for coffee, especially in summer when it’s hot and you don’t want to have to apply a lot of products. And at this cheap price, who could say no!

These Body Shop eyeshadow cubes are the absolute BEST! I have been using them for years and can’t speak highly enough about them! It’s fantastic because you get 4 different shades in there (btw there are different coloured cubes available). They are great for mixing together and creating different looks, perfect for day and night.

Maybelline Coral Crush Lippie- I found this one thanks to the gorgeous Rosemary from Lashes & Lattes. I saw it on her in a picture and fell in love. The colour is so popping bright and when it goes on to your lips it is so smooth and creamy. A great one to have in your bag for when you need a splash of colour!
