I’m a follower of Kate on sleeping bootay and she invited all of us to do this tag, so thought I’d give it a shot 🙂 Tags are more of a YouTube phenomenon, where YouTubers leave video responses, but I’m all up for expanding this to the everyday blogger and they are a good way of discovering brand spanking new products – and being a bit nosey! I do have a fair amount of make up, so today, I shall show you what’s in my ‘everyday’/’essential’ make up bag. We don’t want to get into my travelling or holiday one yet – but I might be daring and show you before I go away. That will be a loooooong post…
What does my bag look like? Well, my friends, this little beaut is one that I got from The Body Shop about four years ago now – you can really tell that it’s four years old! It was part of a sample gift set that they gave me on my birthday with my Body Shop beauty card 🙂 I actually have quite a few make up bags, but for some reason, I have stuck to this one for quite some time! The zip’s starting to break, so maybe I’ll have to change it up soon!
What lotions and potions do I have in my little bag? Let’s do it in the order I do my make up in 🙂 Starting with the base, I have my awesome The POREfessional primer (review here), my fantastical Bourjois Healthy Mix Gel Serum foundation (review here) and my The Body Shop concealer for under my eyes and spots 😦 Luckily, I’ve not had many spots recently, so it’s all for under my eyes right now 🙂
Next, my cheeks. I am in love with my NARS contour kit. So in love, in fact I was meant to do a review on it, but couldn’t wait to open it and start using it. I absolutely love how compact it is and although it’s a bit shimmery, it’s not ‘HEY, LOOK AT ME!!’ shimmery. Make sense?! I’ll do a proper write up soon, I promise…
Onto the eyes and I am currently a massive fan of my L’Oreal Super Liner in Carbon Gloss (review here), my Rimmel Day2Night mascara, and my Sleek brow kit (review here) for those days that I want more filled brows 🙂
As for the lips, I carry a few around with me. I carry my Revlon lip butter in Peach Parfait, which is a natural pinky colour to complement my lips. If I want a deeper colour, I wear my Mac lip pencil in Boldly Bare underneath, a little darker than my natural lip colour. I always pack my Rockalily ZOMG! lipstick, in case I need a bolder lip and don’t want to go home! 🙂 And lastly, I always carry my Vaseline pot 🙂
Lastly, a special mention for all the tools that I lug around with me on a daily basis! I use my Real Techniques buffing brush for my foundation, my Real Techniques contour brush for my bronzer and my Real Techniques Stippling brush for my blush. If I have room (which is usually not the case!), I also bring my eyelash curlers.
And that’s that 🙂 You are now all TAGGED to write a What’s in my Make Up Bag? post! Please post a comment with your link so I can have a peek into your make up bags! Here’s the finished product of what I look like with all of my make up bag products.
