This was meant to go live last week but as always with Blogger things don't tend to run smoothly
and in my opinion better late than never!
I have lots of make-up bags but the one I do tend to favour is my Urban Decay Quincera make-up
bag it's large, pvc (wipe clean) , the most gorgeous shade of purple and glittery...what's not to like.
Sadly this bag was a limited edition to mark the 15th anniversary of Urban Decay
and no longer available but you might find one on eBay?
So what is inside?
The truth is far too much as I seldom empty it yet add products constantly...oops!
I like to keep various brushes at hand - mostly face/cheek brushes as that is what I touch up the most.
I don't tend to keep my pricey brushes in my everyday bag just through fear of loosing them.
Clarins Bronzing Duo in Dark is a great multi tasking product, I use the light shade as a setting powder
and the deep shade to contour and warm up my skin.
The two cheek products I keep in my daily make-up bage are MAC Lightyear MSF as this highlighter goes with pretty much any blush.
Speaking of blushes, 17 First Kiss Blush is a lovely shade and again suits most make-up looks
and a great cheap and cheerful blush.
I don't tend to carry much around for my eye area expect from MAC's Studio Finish Concealer
which in all honestly I rarely have to touch up throughout the day but I feel better knowing that it is in
my bag just in case...I am a complete worry wart!
I also lug around a random mascara at the moment it is Bourjois Black Jack mascara
and my daily eye liner which is Bourjois 3 Dot Liner which I again like to have at hand
should I need it.
Truthfully I do carry more lip products than anything else and I have no explanation to why I do this
as they are quite similar in tone...I'm just a hoarder at heart haha!
Chanel's Rouge Coco in Aventure is a light bright pink that has a slight glossy finish which I do like to
pair with NARS Lip Lacquer in Chelsea Girls.
I also keep a Revlon Lip Butter and The Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balm in my bag should my lips
need a little moisturation.
What would a make-up bag be without a few random products?
I always carry about a toothbrush and mini tooth paste not because I am a dirty stop out
but because I'm quite paranoid about my teeth and gums and like to brush after every meal.
A few random hair bands for when my hair needs tamed, a forehead balm as I hate taking pain killers
for small headaches, my hayfever relief balm which is pretty self explanatory and last but not least
a small spray bottle of Liz Earle's Skin Tonic to calm and refresh my skin on the go.
I think it may be time to have a make-up bag cull don't you?
