I thought I would share with you what I keep in my everyday make up bag and use on a regular basis.
There is a mixture of drugstore and high end products in here that I have bought and collected over the past few years.
My make up bag is one of the Zoella Beauty Make up bags; I love it because it can fit so much in it, including my make up brushes, which is amazing because you only have to take one make up bag with you when travelling.
Primer – Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot
I have pretty oily skin so this primer is a really good base for make up as it helps to reduce oiliness.
Foundation – Hourglass Foundation Stick
This is a product that I have only recently started using but so far it seems pretty good. It is a medium coverage foundation that can probably be built up to high coverage. It cakes up a little bit around my chin but I think that’s because the weather has been quite hot and I have oily skin.
Concealer – Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
This is my favourite concealer that I have tried. It has really high coverage so it is really good at covering spots.
I really like both of these powders but I use them both for different reasons.
The Hourglass powder is meant to “reduce redness and give skin clarity” and it is great for making your skin look less dull.
The Soap & Glory Powder I use for mattifying my skin; as I have pretty oily skin so this powder really helps to set my make up and reduce shine.
Another powder that I really like is Rimmel Stay Matte Powder but mine recently broke so I switched to using the Soap & Glory one.
Blush – Charlotte Tilbury in First Love
This blush was a gift from my mum and it is the first ever product I got from Charlotte Tilbury and I absolutely love it!
It is my perfect blush shade and it is quite subtle so it can be worn as an everyday blush, which I love.
This ‘Bronzer’ is actually a ‘Highlighting Blush’ but I find it a great shade for me as a Bronzer because I have really pale skill so I find most Bronzers are way to orange for me or too dark.
Highlight – Becca Champagne Pop by Jaclyn hill
This is something my dad picked up for me when he went to America. I had been wanting it for ages so I asked him if he could pick it up for me. I’m not going to lie that I got very caught up in the YouTube hype around this product as so many people were raving about how great it was.
It is a beautiful golden shimmer, which looks great on most skin tones and I personally love to wear it in the summer as it looks beautiful in the sun light.
It is a very pigmented highlighter and you only need the tiniest amount so it is going to last me for a very long time.
Mascara – Diorshow Iconic Overcurl
For me personally, Mascara is one of the make up products that I couldn’t live without.
I have quite light hair and my eyelashes are so light they look pretty much non-existent so I find that mascara makes quite a big difference for me.
Eye Primer – Nars Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base
This primer is great for keeping your eye shadow in place all day and really helps to stop it creasing.
This eyeshadow stick is pretty pricy but it is the best one that I have tried. It has amazing staying power and is so pigmented.
Frozen Quartz and Misty Rock are the two that I have and they are both beautiful colours that can be worn with so many different make up looks so they are very versatile.
I got this palette as a Christmas present a few years ago and I absolutely love it.
It has every single eye shadow that I would ever need or use, including a matte black which I attempt to use as a substitute for eyeliner.
My favourite shadow from the palette has to be Amber Lights (second from the right on the middle row) and I love to wear it in Autumn.
The Lacome Juciy Shaker is such a pretty shade and can either be worn quite sheer or you can apply more to make it more pigmented, which I really like. But you have to be quite careful because when you first apply it, it can appear quite sheer so you may go to put more on but it dries down much darker so that it something to look out for when applying this product.
This Laura Mercier Lipstick is the first high end lipstick my mum ever bought for me so it is quite special to me. I absolutely love the shade of this, I find it complements my skin tone quite well, it can go with many different make up looks and it can be worn at any time of the year, all of which I really like about it.
Finally, this Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector is great for when you don’t want to wear much make up but you want to have a little bit of colour.
