What's In My Makeup Bag

Monday, 18 November 2013

Hey Dolls.
If you read my 'treats from my boyfriend & his mum' post, you will know that I got a new makeup bag. So I thought I'd show you what I'm currently using (:

 I have loved using the Benefit POREfessional & the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation together, my skin looks flawless & the foundation is such a good colour match. Definitely holy grail products here.

I then use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to cover any redness/blemishes & cover my dark circles. After that has been blended I use the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer to hightlight, I pop it on the bridge of my nose, cupid's bow, cheekbones etc. 

I then use the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder to set my face & I find the other powder products apply better if I powder beforehand. I use the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer to contour, I pop it into the hollows of my cheeks, under my chin & any excess on my temples, hairline etc.

Lastly for the face is blush - I use the Benefit Sugarbomb blush as it gives a subtle hint of colour to the skin. I pop it on the apples of my cheeks & blend it up to the hairline.

 I use the Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer before my concealer as it really helps things to stay put & makes sure nothing creases throughout the day.

I use the Garnier Caffine Eye Roll Ons after my concealer, I usually switch between them depending on whether I need extra coverage or not. They are both really good at making you look more awake & bright eyed.

I use the Mua eyeshadow primer to even everything out on my lids & make sure everything stays put all day. I use the applicator to apply it & then blend it out with my ring finger. I use the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette nearly everyday, I mostly use Walk Of Shame all over the lid & Venus on the brow bone/inner corner.

& lastly I have been loving the Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara, it really does it all. My lashes have more volume & length with no clumps to be seen what so ever.

I keep it pretty simple for my brows, I have loving using the shade Naked 2 from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette to fill them in & then I use the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara to set them & catch any hairs I missed.

Like brows, I tend to keep it pretty simple. I have been loving the Nivea Lip Butter for the colder months, it really does make a difference in the appearance of my lips. I use my finger to apply this but I make sure my hands are always sanatized first so no nasties are going on my lips.

Whats in your make up bag?


  1. I've been meaning to purchase the Nivea Lip Butter for months now but never seem to get round to it!
