A Peek into Nena'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 a truly lovely blogger from across the pond, Nena

Nivea Visage Q10 Plus Anti Wrinkle BB Cream -  It's my favourite BB cream, I use it everyday ( except for the days where I don't use any makeup at all) It's not heavy, it doesn't make my face look oily, it feels light on the skin and unlike some foundations and BB creams when I wear it I feel like I'm not wearing anything.
L'oréal Paris Glam Bronze Brunette Harmony - I like this Bronzer it is currently my favourite from the ones that i have tried.
Essence Quattro eyeshadow in 05 to die for - These are my favorite eyeshadows ever!, I've totally used up a lot of it, I use it every time I have makeup on, it's perfect for smoky eyes, it doesn't smudge and doesn't flake, I once fell asleep with it on and when I woke up it didn't move at all ( only the eyeliner i was wearing smudged haha)
L'oréal Color Infaillable eyeshadows in 002 Hourglass Beige and 012 Endless Chocolat - If you haven't tried these eyeshadows you need to!, they are so good ( actually currently no 1 favorite with my essence one) but i don't wear these everyday because i feel like it's a little too metalic for everyday, but they have great lasting power and don't smudge at all.
Essence eyebrow pencil in 01 black - It's good, nothing amazing, the first eyebrow pencil i've ever tried so i can't compare it to others, but currently it works well for me.
Essence get BIG lashes mascara - My favorite mascara ever!, it makes my lashes look big and it doesn't clump, smudge or flake, ( unlike some Maybelline mascaras that I've tried and didn't work for me)

Clinique eyeliner in 07 really black - i only use this one on my water lines, i don't like to use it lash line because it's not that black, i feel like it's a really soft black, and when i wear black eyeliner i want it to be really black which this one isn't ( but when i first got the eyeliner it worked well).
Essence 2 in 1 eyeliner pen - I really like this one!, it's really black and really nice and easy to apply with, it has two sides one is thin and the other one is thick, i usually use the thin one.
Dream Lumi touch highlighting concealer - this one just doesn't work for me, maybe i got a bad one or a bad color for me, i don't know but it just doesn't work for me, i won't be repurchasing it. 
L’oréal caresse lipstick in 06 aphrodite scarlet – one of my favorites, i love it, it feels nice on the lips, it’s a pretty colour, but the lasting power isn’t the best
L’oréal caresse lip tint or gloss or lipstick ( not sure what to call it haha in 102 Romy – love this one too, i always keep many different type og lip products in my bag because i can get bored of the one i am wearing and be wanting a different color
Eos lipbalm - gotta have my favorite lipbalm with me haha.
Dior Addict Lipsticks in 343 Miss Dior and 753 Fashion - I have only one complaint about these lipsticks and it's the lasting power, other than that I love them, they look great, feel great, but don't last that long.
Dior Addict lipgloss in 087 sweet rose  - I love this lipgloss, it's a clear pink one and it's not sticky at all.
L’occitane hand creams – I always keep hand creams because my hands get pretty dry, I love my L’occitane hand creams, they work really well on me, i love the rose one esp, it has such a nice scent
I always keep at least one brush in my bag, this one is from eco tools
And lastly i have my mirror, i use this one that i got when i was in paris, it’s really light and thin, i really like that.
