What's in My Make Up Bag?

After watching amazing vloggers I'm getting more and more in beauty products and make up. It's getting a bit of a bad habit. So when I recently changed my make up bag, and I'd bought all the products that I was really really needing, or wanting, I thought it would be a fun little post to show my key make up bits. So I'll run through them with a little review and why I love it:

Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner.
This is my all time favourite liquid eyeliner. I love the really thin, precise brush and the eyeliner lasts all day and is a really black black. I know how to use this and it gives me the perfect winged liner. But it takes practice!

Benefit Brow Zings Eyebrow Kit.
I used an eyebrow pencil for a long time to fill in my eyebrows. But when I was recently browsing the Benefit counter in Debenhams I came across this little beauty. The lady said it would give me a softer look and filled in my eyebrows to try it out. I instantly loved it, the wax is great to keep stray hairs in place and the powder lasts a while whilst still looking natural.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Pallet 
This little pallet is really easy to use. It gives me a natural look as I love Matt shades. But it's really easy to incorperate for a night look as it has a shimmery pale shade and a black matt shade to make a smoky eye.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Pencil
Another easy to use eyeliner from Rimmel. It's very black and I usually use it on the outer corners of my eyes and my upper lash water line to make my eye lashes look thicker at the base. I also have the nude version which is great to put on the lower waterline to make eyes look bigger.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick
I didn't realise I had this many Rimmel products. I must be a closet fan really! This is the perfect nude lipstick. I wear it most days really and people are always commenting on it. It's got a great shimmer. But with nude lipsticks I think they need to be tested on your lips to see if they work. This one is my perfect nude shade.

Cocoa Vaseline
Most girls have to have a tin of vaseline. It's great on lips but I occasionally pop a tiny but elsewhere if I'm noticing dry patches and it always works a treat.

Origins Prescriptions Concealer
I only bought this after seeing so many bloggers rave about it. So yes I bought into the hype but it's taken over Erase Paste as my favourite concealer. It's light and reflects the light and conceals amazingly without looking cakey.

Nars Doucer Blush
This is a perfect natural blush. The brown tone makes it really wearable and it works so much better than a Bronzer for me, so I use this to contour my face usually and it adds a subtle flush of colour.

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moituriser
This is the best base everrrr. I hate foundations as they look too much on me and tend to make me look powdery. But this is amazing. It has great coverage and really gives me the dewy look I'm always after. It also has SPF so it cares for your skin as well. Thats reason enough to buy it!

L'Oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara
I lost my Benefit They're Real Mascara, which I later found! But I'm kind of glad I lost it as I bought this and it's amazing. It really coats my lashes without looking clumpy. And of course it's black as I like most of my eye products to be.

So hope you liked that little delve into my make up bag!

  1. Great post! I use the same Rimmel liquid eyeliner, although I still haven't mastered the winged look. It definitely makes the eyes pop, though. I've used the L'Oreal mascara before (though the waterproof one) and I agree it's a great mascara. And I really want that Naked palette xx
