Current Makeup Bag | 2016


I am a definite makeup addict, every spare bit of money goes towards makeup as I love trying out new products and adding them to my collection - you could say I'm a bit of a hoarder! Despite having enough makeup to last me years, I always seem to go back to the same products that I know and love, these are the products that sit proudly in my makeup bag! So I thought I would share these top picks with you! 

FOUNDATION
Rimmel Lasting Finish (Ivory)

I've spoken about this in multiple posts before, because it really is one of my top top favourite makeup picks. This foundation has quite good coverage - and manages to cover every blemish without being cakey, the perfect base for everyday makeup if you ask me! It also claims to be last 25 hours on your face, which I can safely say, I have never tested out - but I can vouch that it lasts for a typical day for me! 

CONCEALER 
Rimmel Wake Me Up

I can't recommend this concealer enough - probably why this is another one that I talk about a lot! Again, it gives you great coverage without feeling too heavy on your face, because I hate that feeling so much! 

CONCEALER 
Collection Lasting Perfection

Yes, I do carry two concealers in my makeup bag! This one I use whenever I feel like I want a little more coverage under my eyes, or sometimes I pair it with the Wake Me Up Concealer, and use this one for my face (and Wake Me Up under me eyes) I feel like this concealer is a huge cult classic for beauty bloggers - I highly recommend it if you haven't already tried it! 

POWDER
 Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot (Translucent)

I love this powder to bits, in fact, mine is about to run out at any moment! I will definitely be re-purchasing it though, because it's just so great! A little dusting of this will help your makeup to stay put all day, and will stop you from looking too oily - I never skip this step! 

EYEBROWS
Mac eyeshadow (Brun) 
I can't leave the house without filling my eyebrows in or I feel way too naked, so I always use this Mac eyeshadow in Brun. The colour is perfect for my eyebrows and lasts all day long - so so much better than a pencil! I actually apply this with the small end of the brush that came with my Naked  2 palette.

EYESHADOW
Wet n Wild (Walking on Eggshells) 

To save having to shove a load of different coloured eyeshadows into my makeup bag, I opted for this Wet N Wild mini trio palette. The colours come together to make a perfect basic eye look that could be worn every day! You've also got a highlight colour in there for your brow bone. 

MASCARA
Soap and Glory Thick and Fast 
I actually carry a few mascaras in my makeup bag, because I have to layer to get any coverage on my lashes (I also carry around eyelash curlers to give some volume to my pathetic lashes!!) but my favourite mascara in there has to be this Soap and Glory one, I only recently tried it but it's become one of my go-to's! 

LIPSTICK
Maybelline New York Colour Drama (Keep It Classy)

I must admit I hardly ever wear lipstick nowadays, but if I do I tend to grab this lip pencil. The colour is so gorgeous and perfect for everyday that goes with any makeup look. These lip pencils are so easy to apply (perfect when you're in a rush!) and seem to last all day long!

UPDATE: Loads of people are loving the makeup bag, and I mean I'm not surprised, it is rather gorgeous! - it's from lush-stuff.com f you want to go and have a look! All of their products are just as amazing so I highly recommend stopping by!

  3. I'm so happy to have finally found a person that used the rimmel concealer! My sister gave it to me because it didn't match her face and I love it so much! It's super good, and rimmel is one of the best drugstore brands they are. I've been wanting to try the foundation as well so I'll probably buy it when I run out of mine! Great post :)
