So, that said. I shall kick off with a picture of my make up bag...
The bag is by Cath Kidston and it came with a matching mirror (Ohh don't we just love matchy-things). It's oil cloth so it's really handy as any marks just come straight off (i'm doing a design course at uni and i love to fling paint around and stuff like that.. so things getting ruined is part of every day life for me..) I also have a bit of a love for all things Cath Kidston so this is the definition of my perfect make up bag.
Garnier BB Cream in 'Light'
If you're a regular reader of my blog you will know i don't often wear foundation as i don't like the feeling that i'm clogging up my pores. So the Garnier BB Cream has been the little gem in my make-up bag since it was launched and i've loved it ever since. You can read my review here.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in '02 Light'
I don't need to say a word about the concealer. It's a firm favourite amongst the beauty-blogging community so i'm sure you are all aware by now that it's amazeballs.
Rimmel - Professional Eyebrow Pencil in '002 - Light'
I use my Sleek Eyebrow palette to define my brows in the morning (review here), but i use this for touch ups towards the end of the day if i find it wears off slightly.
Barry M - Kohl Liner in Black
Barry M - Kohl Liner in Brown
Really good budget eyeliners. I use the brown one on my brows sometimes. (oof it needs sharpening..excuse the bluntness of my pencils please..)
Natural Collection - Lip Liner
Not sure of the exact colour of this. I carry this around with me sometimes if i'm wearing neautral coloured lipstick, as it helps to give my lips some definition!
Mac lipstick in "Saint Germain"
Usually my Mac stuff doesn't get a space in my daily make up bag just because i lose things all the time and if i lost one of my best products i reckon i would cry actual tears of sadness. However, i just can't live without this at the moment so for the time being it's in there. I've had a couple of heart-stopping moments where i thought i'd lost this but so far i'm doing well and it's still in my life..
Barry M Lip Paint in '129'
My fail-safe little touch up lipstick for when i'm travelling. It's cheap and cheerful and it applies like a dream.
Rimmel Lipstick in '006 - Pink Blush'
Amazing lipstick. The colour pay off is buildable and it seems to stay for ages on me. Will be repurchasing after this one finally runs out..
MUA Blush in 'Shade 1'
I RAVE about this. I know it's been quite a love it or hate it product but personally i love the MUA blushes. This shade is perfect for my disgustingly pale January skin tone and seems to brighten up my complexion.
If i ever lost this then i'm not going to cry tears over ONE POUND.. (and i'd just go and buy another one with my spare change in my purse..)
Palmers Cocoa Butter - Lip Butter
Smells amazing. Keeps my lips moisturised throughout the day.
Loreal - Volume Million Lashes Luminzer - for 'Green Eyes'
I never thought i'd see the day when i cheated on my Maybelline Falsies with another mascara...but i have. I won't say anything else because i will hopefully have a review of this coming soon..
Loreal - Super Liner Carbon Gloss
Best liquid eyeliner i've ever used.
My favourite lipgloss at the moment. I'm not really a lipgloss person just because i always feel like i've dipped my face in chip fat or something.. but i make an exception for this. Smells delish - lasts forever - it's pink - it glitters - and it's really light and non-sticky.
So there you have it. My make up touching up essentials.
I realise i do have 3 lipsticks in there but as a self-confessed lipstick-addict, i like to have a little bit of choice when it comes to my lip-colour..
I'm planning to do a post on what's in my vanity bag - as that's where i keep all of my best stuff for my every day make up. Either that or a make-up storage post featuring all of my favourites..
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend.
Lots of love,
