I've been meaning to do a 'What's in my Make-Up' Bag for the longest time. I love being nosey and seeing what other people keep in their bags so here's what I have in mine at the moment.......
The bag I'm using is one I got back in May just before I went on holidays to LA. I got it in Penneys and what attracted me too it (besides the lovely pattern) was the fact that it had 2 sections. My last make-up bag was just a one section bag and for holiday packing I like to have things in different compartments to make it easy to put my hands on things.
I think it was around the €4/€5 mark.
Ok so the first (and most important) thing in here is my foundation. The one I use (and swear by) is Maybelline's Dream Satin in 10 Ivory. I love this stuff more than life itself. I found it really difficult to find something that suited my skin and gave me the look that I wanted. This was the only one that worked for me and I've been using it for a good 2 years now.
Next up, concealer. I find the Collection Lasting Perfection one covers any blemishes and doesn't look chalky or dry on my skin (a problem I often have with other concealers). Also it's a good match for my skin shade.
Onto the eyes. At the moment I'm using Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara in Very Black. I got the Waterproof one for holidays and love it. Love the size of the brush, it's small enough to be able to get all those little lashes in the corners.
Maybellines Brow Drama in Dark Brow, this is a Sculpting Brow Mascara. And No7's Lash & Brow Perfector which is a clear gel.
If it's not obvious by now I'm a big Maybelline fan. I just find their products suit my skin and they're just really good.
So the next thing in my bag is the 24hr Color Tattoo in the shade On & On Bronze.
I have 2 eyeliners. The main one I'm using at the moment is Max Factors Excess Intensity in Black. I've been using it a while now and can't fault it. It stays put and I like that you can just twist it up and don't need to bother with the hassle of sharpening it.
The second one is one I bought on holiday's and is Sephora's Crayon Contour in 32 Tango night.
I also have an Eyko eyelash curler that was a freebie with a magazine a few months back and a HD Brows tweezers that came with a Glossy Box.
First up is this RimmelVinyl Gloss in Cosmic. I feel like I have this a long time. I think I picked this up in London but I love the colour of it and still use it quite a bit.
Garnier Factor 20 Lip Protection. This is still in here from my holidays.
I have 2 Tanya Burr lipglosses (which I must do a review on). The shades I have look very similar in the tubes but on the lips they're quite different. I like nudes so I went for Chic and Afternoon Tea.
And last but by no means least is my favourite lip product. It's a Maybelline (yep) Colour Elixir. I purchased 2 of these while in LA. This one is in the shade Mauve Mystique. I'll be dong a full review and talking more about these in a future post.
And THAT is everything in my make-up bag.
