A Peek into the Makeup Monster's Makeup Bag

For years monthly magazines have given us the opportunity to delve into many a famous beauty's makeup bag, without gaining a restraining order!! But have you ever wondered what fellow beauty addicts use on a day to day basis? For the next few weeks I shall be taking a peek into some of my favourite bloggers makeup bags, and asking them to spill the beans on their everyday must haves!! 
This week is the turn of the wonderful Makeup Monster. With beautiful photos and fabulous reviews, this blog has quickly become a firm favourite, after finding it a mere month or so ago!!

Skin79 gold - My skin and traditional foundations don't mix very well so this is a god send for my eternally dry skin and can be slapped on any old way and still look amazing, love it!

Guerlain Meteorites Pressed Powder in Voyage -  I'm all about illuminating products lately and this is an amazing product for giving skin a luminous quality that still looks natural. I use this as a final dusting  over my normal powder! 
NARS Immaculate Complexion Powder - This is a brand new discovery but it's amazing on dry skin, covers pores and leaves a radiant finish with no dreaded powdery bits!

Collection Concealer - I spent years trying out high end concealers with no joy so when I came across Collection's humble concealer, it changed my dark circles forever! a must-have budget buy 

kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder - If you need to fake some chiseled cheekbones in 5 minutes flat this is your only man and although its expensive, a little goes a long way!
Naked 2 and Naked Basics - These two palettes give me endless possibilities with eyeshadows it seems and as I'm very much a neutral kinda gal this covers all my basics, from barely there shades to smokier looks for night time.

Urban Decay Perversion Liner - More Urban Decay, this time with their blackest ever liner perversion. I love a soft eye pencil that's easy to use and this gives great results although it's softness means you get through it quite quickly. 

Shu Uemura Brow Pencil - I've had this about 2 years already and there's still more than a normal sized pencil left to use. This is more expensive but is a great natural brown for brows that doesn't have any of the orange tones I hate in other eye pencils.

Korres Lip Butters - I shamefully neglect lipsticks in favour of balms and glosses and Korres lip butters in a range of gorgeous shades are some of the nicest tinted balms out there and all are cruelty free!

    1. I personally have only ever tried the original naked palette, although it seems to be quite similar to the naked 2!! I would obviously say go for the original naked palette because I bloody love it, but the lovely makeup monster may say otherwise if she's tried them both!! sorry for a long winded reply ;) xx
