Today I have the beautiful Laa Laa Monroe sharing the contents of her daily make-up bag,
not only is Laa Laa one heck of a beauty blogger but she is also a make-up artist
and just an all round lovely girl, if you don't already follow her blog Dolce Vanity I suggest you do now!
On a daily basis, even when I'm out and about I'm not the biggest full face of make-up type of lady.
But I do still like to keep my essentials just in case of any mishaps such as a car passing me by and it hits a puddle leaving me head to toe drenched - you never know.
While a lot love their canvas make-up bags for me I LOVE clear make-up bags, I have a lot of them for professional and personal use, they just help me know what's where and I'm not rummaging about,
plus it's easy to clean :)
MAC Face + Body : The foundation that parts the beauty world, you either love it or hate it.
Some refer to it as just watered down foundation but this is the only MAC foundation I can wear that gives me that daily coverage that's light and also it doesn't break me out!
Travel bottles are a must have, it saves time, you can have your at home and in bag separate
and you'll never forget a thing.
Sleek MakeUP Blush - Life's a Peach & Suede : My combination blush shades.
Suede on my skintone is perfect to contour with, using a light hand and being able to build the intensity,
I love to contour as my cheeks are like a blowfish.
Life's a Peach gives me a subtle but generous warmth to my cheeks,
it compliments the contour without too much going on.
Inika Lip Liner - Moroccan Rose : Where do I start for my love of Inika products, halal, animal cruelty-free, moroccan rose has a rusty look to it, more of a rose gold.
Soft and creamy it wouldn't ever normally be my choice for a lip colour, be careful not to smudge the lip liner, it glistens.
Sleek MakeUP Lipstick - Barely there : keeping it simple but not so bare this has more peach undertones than pink or brown and is perfect for those who don't want to draw too much attention cos I do love my red lips but at times I need that simple beauty.
Motives for LaLa Lipgloss - Trendsetter : Intense but a little sticky it's quick and a nice pick me up to the bare face I like daily an orange with coral undertones with specks of shimmer, it's fast becoming one of my favourite lip gloss to wear.
Blotting paper : Yup I need blotting paper, it's needed for those oil spots that want to appear, just slap one of these on. It's ideal to mop up the oil slick on the T-Zone and a must have within the make-up bag.
Cotton Buds, Sharpener & Mirror : Cotton buds, if I'm wearing eyeliner on my waterline I would rather keep it clean or off rather than having it melted down onto my lashes and then clean up any mishaps while applying lipstick.
Sharpener is self explanatory, best thing about having some Inika products are they come with their own sharpener and of course last but not least but needed...a mirror.
The amount of times I've stopped to fix my face a little in somebody's wing mirror and not even noticed they are inside there, saves the embarrassment and you can fix yourself even at the dinner table.
Hopefully you have found some new products to try out, I know Inca products are on my wishlist!
