What’s In My Make-Up bag?

Oh wow, what a lovely day it is today!

I can’t believe I am sat in my living room on my laptop writing a post when it’s sooooo nice outside! However, It has been a while since I have written a post, so it’s a must!

I decided to do this ‘what’s in my make-up bag’ post because I haven’t done one before and also I received the most beautiful custom make-up bag from The Alphabet Giftshop! THANK YOU!!!! I mean, who doesn’t like anything thats got their name on it! It’s so so cute, and I’d really recommend the other bits they sell, as they are lovely!

So what’s in my make-up bag?

Primer

So we’ll start with he base first, and the primer I have beeb loving lately is the Primark illuminating primer. I think this was £5 and it is so lovely under the foundation. It doesn’t give too much of a shine, but just enough glow that you can see under foundation. I really, really love this product and it’s worth checking out their other primers as well!

Foundation

Okay, so you will always see Estee Lauder, Double Wear in my make-up bag, just because. No, but seriously, it is and always has been my fave foundation for coverage as it just creates the most perfect finish, and it lasts ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT!. 

The other foundation I am LOVING at the moment is the Bourjois, Healthy Mix foundation! This is obviously a high street brand and it’s only around £10 and you can pick it up in Boots or Superdrug etc. This gives a slightly more dewy finish that double wear, but as I have quite dry skin in general, I like to add this foundation on top of the double wear base as I actually prefer the finish. Also, it smell so good!

Concealer

I have recently been trying lots of concealers to see how I get on. My mum bought me the Nars Creamy Concealer for Christmas (ages ago now! WTF) and I really fell in love, but it is expensive to keep buying every month or so.

I was in boots the other day at the makeup counter and I came across this Seventeen concealer that looked a bit like Benefit’s erase paste. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It is so cheap and is pretty much as good as erase paste! I’d highly recommend this for under eye coverage!

Bronzer/Highlighter

So I have been loving Makeup Revolution recently, not just their highlighters but most of their products to be honest. Also the packaging of their makeup is insane for quite a cheap brand. I am really liking their Vivid Shim Brick in Bronze Kiss. It is so cheap but achieves such a good highlight and bronze!

Mascara

I do love a bit of benefit Roller Lash, however I don’t really like paying so much for a mascara, and as I have quite long lashes anyway, I don’t mind scrimping on mascara and going for a drugstore brand. I’m sure you may have all read about the Maybelline Lash Sensational. It really is sensational and has a similar curve brush to roller lash, but it is a bigger brush.

Lips

I do really like a MAC lip creme liner, I feel they apply really well and also last a very long time! They have so many shades to go with all different colours of lipsticks!

I do like a MAC lipstick as well, but recently I’ve been obsessed with Maybelline Colour Sensational  at a much cheaper price. I find these lipsticks really moisturising, even the matt ones, they never dry my lips out as much as the liquid matt ones you can get elsewhere.

On top of all these I obviously have all my make-up brushes and beauty blenders etc, and I do use a setting spray to help set all my make-up!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post! What are your go-to products? I’d love to know 🙂

Love,

Rebecca xxx

    I am totally obsessed with Doube Wear too!!!! Since I tried it, I haven’t used any other foundation cause it’s perfect for me. I’ve been wanting to try Sensational cause I’ve heard so much great stuff about it; I’m a huuuge fan of Roller Lash! Also, LOVE that bag 🙂

    Okay first of all – I’ve absolutely fallen in love with your makeup bag. I’m all about personalizing EVERYTHING I have. Why does it make something 10x cooler when your name is on it? I don’t get it but I love it. LOL

    On to the actual post – MAC lip everything is my jam. That’s a great choice, I find MAC lasts the longest for me – I just don’t have time to reapply sometimes so it always works out well.

    Great post!
