Summer Staples: What's In My Make-Up Bag ? ❤

Hi Lovelies!
Hope you're all doing well? I'm sorry I've been a little bit MIA again on my blog, but I've had so much going on. I have some really exciting developments going on at the moment, so I've had to spread my attention across a few more projects than normal! However, I've got some great posts coming to the blog soon, so I'm excited to get them written up and posted for you lovelies. Last weekend I was snapping away with my camera and I decided to grab my current make-up bag and take a picture of it's contents. I do swap products around quite a bit, as I travel back and forth between work, Daniel's and home... so depending on what I have on it can affect what make-up I carry around in my handbag. The make-up featured in today's post is perfect for creating a light, but flawless base, So I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. I always reply to my blog comments and it really does make me happy to know that you've enjoyed my post, so don't be shy! If you would like to get hold of me a little quicker then you can also use my Social Media icons just to the right hand side of my profile. 

I'm not alone when I say this is really worth the hype! For a number of reasons too.. first of all I truly believe this is the closest I will ever get to getting a true 'flim star' glow or perhaps the luminosity and definition that pretty much every single Victoria's Secret angel's has! Both the bronzer and highlighter have great pigmentation and both shades are truly universal in tone. This is a lifesaver for me and it's mirror is just brilliant for mid-day touch ups too! 

Bobbi Brown Foundation Touch Up Stick
Is it just me or does anyone else quite enjoy applying make-up throughout the day? I think it has become a bit of a habit, but I'm forever applying a lipstick/balm or a bit more concealer throughout the day. It kind of gives me a few minutes out of my working day, which is quite a nice break. I have the full size version of this which is one of my favourite foundations, but sometimes I just want a quick touch up before I go into a meeting at work, or perhaps as a quick touch up after work if I'm heading out for drinks or a catch up! This 'Touch Up Stick' by Bobbi Brown is such a great size to carry around with you and it's saved me many a time! I would say it's one of my most used make-up products and I'm due to make a re-purchase very soon. I also have my eye on the Bobbi Brown Face Touch-Up Palette too!

Estee Lauder Daywear Tinted Moisturiser
I'm writing up a full review for this product, but I absolutely love this as a light base or just to even my skin-tone before applying my foundation. Now this doesn't really have any coverage, but it gives such an amazing sun kissed glow that it instantly boosts your complexion and your confidence too! It comes out a grey colour and turns to suit your skin-tone, but I won't go into too much detail as I have the review coming live to the blog very soon!

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine - Secret
For me there is no better lipstick than a Chanel Rouge Coco Shine and 'Secret' is a great colour for all types of looks. It has just enough payoff to make a difference to your look and it's also great for everyday, as they have a lovely mositurising formula.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush - Dim Infusion
I'm not actually sure if I've reviewed this or not, but this blush is one of my favourites! It really does give than lit from within look and it works beautifully alongside the CT Film star Bronze and Glow to create a beautiful sun kissed glow. I always transition from from Pinks to Peaches in the summer and Dim Infusion is the perfect blush to warm up your complexion during the warmer months.

I hope you've enjoyed this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. Have you tried any of these products before, or do you have your eye on anything from this post?

Lot's of Love
