whats inside my makeup bag

Hello lovelies, i hope your all well. Being a serial snooper i rather enjoy seeing posts on the items you lovely people keep in your bags, makeup bags included, so i thought i would give you guys a little insight into what i use on a daily basis. My makeup bag of choice is of course my beautiful mulberry locked cosmetic purse (if you want to see a post dedicated to the beauty itself click here ;) if your wondering where my makeup brushes are, i keep them separate as i dont want them getting my makeup bag all messy.
 Dr Jart+ Beauty Balm
This is a new addition to my makeup bag, and it is already becoming a firm faviourite. It claims to minimize the need for foundation and concealer and that it does. Although i still adore my studio sculpt foundation i have been using this to let my skin breathe a little as studio sculpt is quite a heavy foundation
Collection 2000 concealer
ive been using Dr Jart+ Beauty balm with my collection 2000 concealer. Ive raved about this concealer many a time, and all i have to say is that it deserves to be hyped about
YSL touche eclat
i apply a little of this as a highlighter under my eyes
Loreal Paris lumi magique primer
this is another new addition but a definite new fave. not only does it prime the skin which in turn helps my foundation stay longer, on my oily prone skin (boo). But it also doubles as a highlighter, it is seriously gorgeous from the rose gold detail on the packaging to the product itself
Benefit Brow Zings 
apologies for the sheer grubbiness of this, i couldnt be without this little duo, anything to keep my unruly eyebrows at bay is a plus in my books. I also love how it includes small tweezers, a perfect makeup bag essential
Bobbi Brown Extreme Party mascara
yep your eyes arent playing tricks with you, im actually mentioning the same mascara more than once, i think there may just be a long lasting relationship with this beauty, it lengthens aswell as thickens my lashes, what more could a girl want 
Bobbi Brown Long wear Gel liner 
a jet black liner that lasts all day on my oily lids, a definite statement in my makeup bag

Urban Decay Naked palette & Bobbi Brown long wear cream shadow in velvet plum (37)
for the past week or so ive been using virgin and sin with velvet plum on a daily basis. Im not usually a fan of cream eyeshadows as they tend to crease but velvet plum seems to last well, and it is such a beautiful shade that the picture just does not give it justice. 
YSL rouge Volupte (10) & Chanel Jalousie 
These two together are a perfect combination, although rather bright shades ive quite enjoyed using them on a daily basis

So there you have it, these are the goodies that i store in my makeup bag!!
whats inside your makeup bag??

  1. i want your make up bag!! interesting post :) x

  2. i must admit it is love between me and my makeup bag haha.. aww thanks :) xx

  3. I REALLY want Benefit Brow Zings! The tweezer is defs an added bonus haha. Which shade do you use? xo

    1. it really is handy having tweezers.. I use the shade medium hun :)..Its quite light, but I have dark eyebrows and it seems to work well with them :) xx

  4. I just ordered that beautful makeup bag! Can´t wait! Does it scratch or stain easily? I´ll be scared to use it I guess.

    1. I have had no scratches so far and ive had it nearly a year so thumbs up there!! I have had one or two foundation stains but they easily come out!! its in great condition still!! dont be scared to use it, the longer Ive used it the nicer the leather looks, if that even makes sense haha xx
