A Peek Into My Make-Up Bag

Hello lovely ladies.  Today I thought I would give you guys a sneaky peek inside my make-up bag. You nosey lot.  

I chop and change my make-up  bag all the time but I am going to share with you guys my current favourites.


Let's start with the base. 

My Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation.  What a beauty.  A lovely dewy finish with a slight shimmer to it.  Perfect for the summer months or what ever you call this weather we are having at the moment.  I have talked about it before in more depth HERE.  

The eyes. 

The Naked 3.  I am loving my Naked 3 pallet by Urban Decay at the moment.  Compared to the Naked 2 there is a lot more pinky shades which I personally prefer.  These shadows are so buttery and are a dream to blend.
For the eyes I am also loving this Eye Shadow Pencil by Collection.  They had a few colours to choose from but Hot Chocolate is defo my fave, how cute is that name.  They are SO easy to use and you are able to do a smokey eye in a matter of seconds.  These are also a lot more appealing if you are on a budget compared to the Naked 3.  £2.99?  What a bargain.

Another cheaper alternative to the Naked 3 that I have to mention is the MUA Luxe Pretty Edgy Eye Palette.  This palette is so beautiful.  The colour selection is quite girly as there is mainly pink and purple shades but I absolutely love them all.  There is two rows of shadows, a row of six shimmer shades along the top and four matte along the bottom.  I like how MUA have made the matte shades slightly bigger than the shimmers too as these are the ones I tend to reach for the most.  I also have to mention the amazing packaging.  I am in love with the black clutched case with gold studs all over it, I think it makes the product look so much more expensive than £8!  You all need this palette in your life. 

L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Noir Excess.  Do I need to say more?  I wasn't sure whether to include this in today's post as I have mentioned it countless times HERE and HERE.  However this mascara is what is currently in my make-up bag and what I am still using on an every day basis. Lovely long, thick and full lashes.  No critics here whatsoever.

The Lips

Surprise surprise another product I have mentioned before. The Rimmel Moisture Renew.  Please forgive me, I just love them so much.  They have such a beautiful range of shades to choose from and are so moisturising on the lips.  Enough said. 
The Tanya Burr lip glosses are not news to anyone within the beauty blogging community.  I have 3 shades myself Exotic Island, Afternoon Tea and Picnic in the Park which are all currently living inside my make-up bag.  These lip glosses have such a beautiful formula they are long lasting, super pigmented and smell a-maz-ing. 
The Cheeks and The Contour
During the summer months everyone wants to look like a golden goddess and one of my favourite products to use lately has been the Bronzing Powder by Bourjois.  It gives your cheeks a beautiful golden glow and does not look orange and muddy at all which is the effect many drugstore bronzers can have.  This bronzer does have a quite shimmer to it but I actually like it and thinks it adds to the golden goddess look. 
For blush I have been loving the Dream Touch cream blushers by Maybelline.  They are a beautiful creamy texture which are so easy to blend.  I should add though a little of this blush goes a VERY long way so unless you want to look like a china doll I would be very careful when applying.  This is speaking from past experience spending ten minutes trying to buff it in to the skin.  I have the pink rose shade in 06. 
I hope you guys enjoyed seeing all the beauty products that I am loving right now.  What are your make-up bag essentials?
