I personally love reading whats in peoples make up bags at the moment, so I thought I would share whats in mine. I'm at school at the moment so I like to keep my makeup quite minimal, quick and easy. So these are the products I can't not have in my make up bag.


LOreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint: This is one of my favourite drugstore foundations that I have used so far. The coverage is medium to light, but it covers really well, you need only the smallest amount to cover your face. The consistency of this is amazing, you rub it into your face and it feels like silk on your skin, its amazing.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural I use this skinfinish to matte my face after my foundation and as a powder to keep everything in place. I think it works really well, keeps my face matte and not too shiny for a good 5-6 hours without having to be re powdered. Even though they are expensive I think they're amazing quality and last a really long time

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer  This concealer is one of the most talked about drugstore concealers. Its a cult product in the beauty world, and I love it. It states to last for 16 hours, I wouldn't say it lasts that long, but it lasts for a long time. I use the concealer for covering dark circles and for spots, its good for both. The price is cheap and the product is great, nothing could be better.

Rimmel Sun Shimmer Bronzer: I love this bronzer because its quite subtle, when I'm wearing blush I don't like to have a really harsh bronzed look. Rimmel advertises this as a 3 in 1 bronzer, and I think it is, it has a lovely highlight colour, a light bronzey colour and a terracotta bronze. When you swirl all three together onto a brush, it makes a really subtle shimmer colour that's great for autumn and winter.

Sleek Rose Gold Blush: Sleek are one of my all time favourite brands for blusher, they have amazing pigmented shades. I fell completely in love with this blush when I saw it. Its very similar to NARS Orgasm, and I didn't want to spend nearly £25 on a blush, when I could get the same one for under £5. Its a lovely pink shade with gold glitter through it. It creates an amazing flushed colour, which isn't too obvious.

Maybelline 24HR Colour Tattoo- On and On Bronze These colour tattoos have been another product that is a must have in the beauty world. They are AMAZING. They stay on for hours without budging, they're great as a base or just as a quick bit of colour on your lid.The liquid shadows are easy to apply and create amazing looks with. Since they've been released I think I have probably worn one everyday, they have a range of different colours; but I think the bronze is the best everyday and evening colour.

Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Trio I got this trio about a year ago for free as a spent over £25 on the counter, I cant find the exact trio, but I have linked a similar one. This trio has three shades; a shimmer base, a shimmery light brown and a matte brown. The eye-shadows can create an easy smoky brown eye or you can use the shades individually. I have been using the lightest shade on top on the Colour Tattoo to create a nice shimmery brown colour. Its quick and easy to use with amazing colours.

Revlon Lash Potion Mascara I've had this mascara for a while and only used it a couple times before i moved on because I wasn't hugely impressed. But I found it again and instantly fell in love with it. For one the packaging is incredible, which did draw me in to buying it at first. But the mascara itself lengthens and volumises, and basically does everything it says it does. Its easy to apply and stays on for a long time, it has everything I look for in a mascara.

Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner I can easily say that I am awful at getting my cat flicks even, but this liquid liner has made it so much easier. It has a really long slightly flexible nib making it easy to make a precise line and clear flick. It a matte black and can do thin or thick lines depending on what you want. My favourite liner I've used, and for the price its worth the £5.99

Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter- Pink Lemonade Revlon are on top form this year, the lip butters are my new favourite lip products. They're moisturizing and have good colour pay off. They have an huge range of colours to choose from. Pink Lemonade is my newest and favourite colour, I have four others and each are amazing.


From left to right: Primark Eyelash Curlers, Real Techniques Eyeshadow Brush, Real Techniques Blush Brush, Real Techniques Powder Brush, Real Techniques Stippling Brush

As you can tell I LOVE Real Techniques Brushes, I think their amazing quality and not to badly priced. They apply makeup really nicely and are the softest brushes ever.

So that is whats in my makeup bag at the moment. I hope you enjoyed reading it and learning whats in my makeup bag. Thanks for reading.
