What's In My Make Up Bag?

The contents of my everyday make up bag doesn't change that often. I usually stick to the same basics but change up the blusher/bronzer and my lipstick. A different colour of lipstick can really change any make up look! 

My current make up bag is from Victoria's Secret. This was a gift from my parents last Christmas. It's a great size for in your handbag and I love the lace effect pattern. I am thinking about changing it up though; currently I have my eye on this one by Charlotte Tilbury. It is possibly a little big as a make up bag but it's just more of an excuse to buy more make up! Who needs an excuse anyway?!

Right now my make up consists of:

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder in Vanille - Available Here
NARS Lipgloss in Super Orgasm - Available Here
Real Techniques Blush Brush - Available Here
Bourjois Effect 3D Lipgloss in Rouge Democratic - Available Here
Bourjois Volume Glamour MAX Holidays in Ultra Black - Available Here

Miss Sporty Fabulous Lash in Xtra Black - Available Here
Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush - Available Here
Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Star Dust - Available Here
No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Devils Delight - Available Here
Victoria's Secret Make Up Bag - Similar Available Here

As can see I like to mix up my make up collection between high end and drug store beauty items. My current favourite is the Chanel Star Dust Powder which I have just rediscovered! I bought this in the 2012 from their Christmas Collection - it was so sought after at the time, I found it really difficult to get a hold but it is now part of their staple collection so easy enough to get your hands on it. I always bring this out every year at Christmas it's perfect for adding a bit of shimmer!  

I almost always carry at least two different mascaras; this is because I'll usually have one that's good for lengthening and one that gives some extra volume. I am still on the search for the perfect mascara that does both these things, do you have any recommendation? Just like the mascara I will usually have more than one lipstick or lipgloss with me either in my make up bag, bottom of my handbag or in my pocket - I'm constantly topping up if needed. Hair ties and bobby pins are an essential to be kept in my make up bag at ALL times, being caught short without one of these is a nightmare - especially with long hair like mine! Lastly, you'll always find a nail polish in my make up bag. Just now it's a bright red colour in keeping with the season - very festive!

What's inside your make up bag?

Lots of Love,
