What's in my make up bag!
I use this totally cute bright make up bag on a daily basis to hold all of my essential goodies. I am yet to find a smaller one with a chic print for my handbag however find that I don't necessarily do too many touch ups throughout the day apart from my lipstick. I find the bag itself to be a perfect size for my daily products and comes in handy if I'm on the run (generally 99.9% of the time!)
Here is what it holds <3
To prime and for even skin tone: Estée Lauder idealist even skin tone illuminator - I have only just started using this product so don't feel I can give a really good review on it however can say that it's a beautiful and light feeling cream that allows your skin to breathe, really useful for my skin type as I have acne prone skin with hyper-pigmentation.
Daily foundation: Estée Lauder double wear liquid foundation in 2N1 desert beige and the double wear pressed powder in 2N2 fresco - I have raved about these products time & time again so will save my breath the time around :)
Bronzing powder: Clarins pressed bronzing powder in copper sun - I got this product on sale at my local chemist and actually really love it! I find it a really good colour for contouring as it doesn't have that pretty, sparkly component to it.
The eyes: To get the classic winged eyeliner I use Napoleon perdis Neo noir Liquid eyeliner in black and love it, I find it really easy to apply and is a really good quality product. If you follow my instagram page you will know that in my recent haul I purchased a new eyeliner to try, It is still a liquid liner however is by Chanel so will give a proper review on that in the coming weeks. I generally use fascinating eye kohl in white by Mac on my bottom lid to brighten my eyes and make them appear bigger. I like to alternate eye shadow colors currently I am using shady lady eye shadow by sports girl in neutral browns/golden colors I really like this product especially if you're on a budget. To finish this look I use an eyelash curler and finish with maybelline the falsies volume express mascara in black. I have been using this mascara for a long while and tried others however keep coming back to this baby!
Eyebrows: Napoleon perdis kohl eyeliner in brown I apply this with an angled brush and use this as I like the colour against my hair and complexion.
Pro tip: I use Napoleon perdis brush cleaner to clean my brushes when I'm on the go when i don't have time to shampoo them, this helps with break outs and keeps your brushes hair in tact and also helping the application of your makeup products.
I hope you all enjoyed this post if you have any recommendations on products/brushes etc i would love for you to leave them for me in the comments box below and If not what are your favorite beauty products of the year?
