Hope you are all doing really well? I finally managed to submit my journal report for university earlier today, so I decided to make the most of the natural daylight I had left and fired up my camera to take some blog pics. I always find it so much more satisfying playing around with my make-up when I know I should be doing something else *Cough Uni Work* haha! I thought I would go ahead and show you what's in my make-up bag at the moment and tell you a little bit about why they are in there! There are actually a few bits missing, but I thought it would be a bit more authentic if I only spoke about what exactly was in my make-up bag at the time I was taking the pictures! I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section down below! You can also use my Social media icons to the right hand side if you would like a quicker response :)
What's In My Makeup Bag?
To answer my own question... not actually as much as usual haha! I tend to travel around quite a lot, so I like to make sure that my make-up bag is fully equipped with what I need to last me quite a few day's at a time.
Wow.. I have four base products in my make-up bag.. I didn't actually realise I had that many in there! In terms of a primer type product, I'm currently using my Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer, which I adore. It's such a great skin booster and it totally brings out your inner supermodel *wishes* all jokes aside, this is a really popular product that Charlotte loves to use on all her model clientele. I also have my Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation, which I do like... but I'm still trying to work out if it has the wow factor for me... but it hasn't left my make-up bag yet, so it must be doing something right?! Another product I have been carrying around is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation... I absolutely love the stuff! It's so brightening and it actually has amazing lasting power too, it's been my recent go to foundation for work, as it makes me look really refreshed, even if I'm super tired. Finally, I have my Chanel Vitalumiere Powder Foundation which is a recent add to my make-up bag! Sometimes the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation can get a little glowy.. especially towards the end of the day, so I love using this to make the Rimmel foundation a little more subtle looking, without completely loosing it's gorgeous glow.
You know that good old saying.. The eyes are the window to your soul? Well, I try my very best to keep my eyes looking bright.. but I'm sure you'll agree it's sometimes easier said than done haha. My current concealer is the Clarins Instant Concealer, which is so light, but buildable. It feels really refreshing, as well as being super easy to blend out. I have been using this concealer for the past few months and I love it! In an attempt to keep my eyes looking nice and awake I have recently been applying the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyliner in Nude to my waterline. I can't get over how smooth and comfortable this product is too apply and it really does make my eyes look more awake. If I'm looking for a little definition I opt for either my Chanel Eyeliner in Cassis, which is a gorgeous deep Purple (perfect for greeny/blue eyes) or my Charlotte Tilbury The Classic Eyliner in Audrey, which is more of a traditional dark Brown shade. I love both of these eyeliner's and they are perfect for both day and night use! Moving onto my lashes I'm really enjoying my Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes for gorgeous volume minus clumps! I can see it staying in my make-up bag for quite a while too! Finally, my go to brow product is Benefit's Gimmie Brow! I'm all for no fuss brows, but I love how this really tidies up the shape and adds great definition/
Lips & Cheeks
I'm actually a little shocked by the fact I only have one lipstick in my make-up bag at the moment! Normally it's a minimum of four haha. I have been making the most of my new make-up from my Charlotte Tilbury haul and have been loving the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in "Bitch Perfect" along with the Lip Cheat Liner in "Pink Venus" I don't think I have ever used two products that truly are "my lips but better" it's such a natural look on me, which is perfect for work. I have also been using my Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blusher in "Love Glow" which is a gorgeous Pinky/Peach... who doesn't love a Pinky/Peach blusher.. it seems to work for every single look I try at the moment.
I hope you have enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it! I love writing more chatty posts, so let me know if you would like to see more. I would love to hear your thoughts on "What's in my make-up bag" is there anything you have or would like to try?
Have a fantastic week!
Lot's of Love
