Whats in my Make - Up Bag


So I thought I would give you guys an insight into what is currently in my make up bag, and really this could also be named as my favourite make up products of 2013, as these are what I am loving a lot this year. Quite a few of the products have literally been added in the past couple of weeks but there was no way these were not to be included in this post, how I have not coped without them for literally a whole year is beyond me. 

TOOLS
It was only last week when I discovered this bargain! We were doing our Christmas food shop and I happened to walk down the Beauty isle in Asda to find the Real Techniques brushes at literally half the price than any store, this I could not walk away from. I placed the Powder, Blusher, Eye Shadow and the Expert Face Brush into the trolley, and how happy I am that I did. They are just so soft to use, I love them.

BASE 
One product I have just purchased is the Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer, I apply this before all my make up, and what a difference it makes. It gives my face a smoother base to place the foundation on top, and my make up stays on perfectly the whole day. Why have I not tried this before??

The Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in Vanilla is amazing, it is the perfect shade for my skin, I have never found such an incredible match before. For most of the year I had been using the Rimmel London Match Perfection in Classic Ivory, however this has quite an oily complexion and still a bit dark for my skin tone, but out of all the other foundations I had tried this was the best one. I found that it wore off after half a day and would have to reapply it if necessary. 

My boyfriend got me the Mac Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC20 for Christmas and its amazing!!! Once again a perfect match for my skin tone, it is quite a thick substance so you don't need to apply a lot but it stays on the whole day. It is quite pricey so I tend to swap and change with the Revlon foundation. 

I apply the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer before and after using the foundation depending on how bad my skin and under eye circles are. Then the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Warm Beige just to keep the bit of shine away and to keep my foundation stay on longer. 

EYES 
Pretty much all the time I don't do much with my eyes except for lather on the mascara as my eyelashes are that small you can never see them, its so annoying, I use the Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara. I tend to go for liquid eyeliner to get a more define line, and flick (which I have to say I am getting better at), I use Collection Extreme Felt Tip liner. If I want to add a bit of eye shadow, which this Christmas has been most days then I have reached for my new Mac shadow in Mythology Lustre. For my eyebrows I swap between the Veluxe Brow Liner in Brunette and the self propelling crayon in Brunette, it just depends how much definition I want to go and if I want to go quite dark or more natural.

CHEEKS 
I use any of the products above, maybe some days I use a mixture of them all which actually looks really nice. Some days if I want to look more natural then I will use Benefit Hoola it is more subtle, but then other I want a bit of sparkle and a pink tone I use Benefit Bella Bamba. The Mac bronzer is beautiful, it is a mixture of both bronzer and blusher and perfect for my skin tone. I actually cannot quite remember what this is called, so when I look back I will place it on here. 
Where would I be without my Limited Edition Mac Mineralize Skinfinsh? I have had this for so many years, it was my first expensive make up product I ever bought and from Harrods! I am so sad that I cannot get this any more it is amazing. The little bit of highlighter at the top has almost gone and this is my favourite part of the product. I am going to have to go back to Mac and see what similar products they have. 

I hope you enjoyed what was in my make up bag, it doesn't change that much on a daily basis. I would recommend all these products to anyone! xxx
