I love looking in peoples makeup bags. Maybe because I'm quite nosey?! so today, I'm sharing the staples in my own bag a.k.a the trusty beauty items I can always rely on.
I was recently gifted this beautiful floral cosmetics bag by Marc Jacobs. Unlike my previous makeup bags, this one is made from thick material. Theres a pink floral print (its also available in yellow too) on the outside with a Marc Jacobs tag on the front. Inside, the lining is black and white with the Marc Jacobs name printed all over. I wont lie, this is the nicest cosmetics bag I've owned. It looks really lovely on my dressing table (in reality its a chest of drawers) and the size is big enough to store all my foundations, concealers and other beauty bumpf.
I have an Ikea helmer to store the majority of my beauty products so I just keep my most used items in my make up bag as its much easier to reach them. Products, such as blushes, highlighters and shadows, I rotate on a regular basis but these are the ones currently in my makeup bag.
My favourite foundation is Revlon Colorstay - its great for oily or combination skin and I've lost count of how many bottles I've purchased over the years. I think I may try a No7 foundation next but I always end up coming back to Revlon. For concealer, I mainly use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer for blemishes and imperfections and the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer for the under eye area. I have to use powder as my skin can get really oily. I'm using the Vichy Dermablend powder at the moment and its pretty good for helping to control oil. For brows, I love the Beauty UK Brow Kit* as its really easy to use.
Blush wise, I like the YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush and the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette in streak which has a blush, highlighter and bronzer. If I want a quick and easy eye look, I'll use either MAC's Paint Pot in vintage selection or a No7 Shade & Define Shadow Pencil. To define and lengthen my lashes, I love the Lancome Hypnose Mascara - its become my HG mascara as its so good.Have you tried any of these products?
