Evening you lovely lot!
I recently was given a new makeup bag as a gift so thought I'd do a bit of a round up of the makeup bits I use on a daily basis/carry around with me!
Isn't this make-up bag so cute?! Its by a designer called Charlotte Macey- this was purchased from the Country Living fair but you can see all of Charlotte's products on her website.
These are the products I use on a daily basis- Its taken me a while to find my perfect combo but I think i'm getting close!
My go-to foundation is the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat in BR30- this is my third bottle and I don't think I'll ever stray away from this... I use approx 2 pumps of this per day so it tends to last me a good 4 months. Although its pretty pricey its totally worth it- the coverage is dewy but can be used with powder over the top dependant on what you are looking for. The shade match for me is perfect and no signs of any awkward jaw line marks! I did recently test out the YSL Fusion Ink foundation but for me it clung to all my dry patches!
My go-to concealer is Soap and Glory Trick and Treatment this concealer has replaced the Collection cover up for me! It has a yellow pigment mix that wipes away those dark circles and keeps my eye area looking fresh and bright!
My go-to brow product is the Illamasqua Eye brow cake in Thunder. I fell in love with this when i attended the Illamasqua blogger event in 2014 and use it every day! If you are looking for a new brow product this is THE one to get.. Its a really pigmented powder that you can either use wet or dry to add depth and colour to your brows without making them look like slugs on your face! I am going to get another one of these soon in the 'Glaze' shade- a little bit darker than Thunder!
My go-to blush is Sincere by Mac- a staple blush for me now- a lovely muted beige/coral shade that for me works really well with my skin tone- I've moved away from the deep pinks in the past few years- this works well as a blusher and contouring product in one!
Maybelline I use for a smokey eye effect and when I want a bolder look as the nib on this one is quite chunky. My only gripe with this one is that it doesn't stay put when I apply it to my waterline.
The Kevyn Aucoin Primatif is amazingly good in the waterline- stays put for at least 7 hours!
My go-to lip products are-
EOS lipbalm in Pomegranate and Raspberry Sorbet- tastes delish, easy to pop in my handbag and always gets people talking when I start putting it on- some people are confused by the shape!
Dandelion ultra plush lip gloss- a soft pearly pink lipgloss that isn't sticky- woooo! (my pet hate is stickiness!)
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer*(in Shooting Star)- love this peachy nude shade- its a nice shade to pop on for work- not too much but still looks like you've paid attention to your pout!
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick (in Glastonberry) Love love this! I keep this in my makeup bag so that if I have any unexpected dinner plans after work I can pop this on for a bit of a nighttime look.
LipGlam multi use balm* - only received this over the weekend but I'm loving this already- its, as the name suggests, a lip balm but it has a number of other uses which for me makes it a great staple for my daytime makeup bag. You can use it on your lips, dry skin, cuticles,split ends, eyebrows and even as a mascara primer!
My go-to extras are-
Benefit High beam- we all know and love this product! Again I don't wear this in the daytime but I keep it in my makeup bag incase I pop out for drinks after work and want highlight up a little!
Invisibobble traceless hair ring- if you haven't tried these out you should! You can buy a pack of 3 from Boots for £3.75. You know that annoying kink you get in your hair after putting it in a pony tail? Well these weird little bobbles mean you'll be kink free!
Do you have any multi purpose products you would recommend?
