I got given this make up bag from 7 For All Mankind and they embroidered my initials on the front which I think is so cute and really kind of them! I’ve had it for a while and I use it all the time but haven’t posted about it before.
This is generally what I keep in my make up bag, I have a lot of other items but I only keep the things I use often in there so it doesn’t get too cluttered or too hard to find things. I didn’t always like make up, it’s actually only the past year or so I have gotten really into wearing it, I used to prefer the more natural look but sometimes it was difficult not wearing any make up. I’m glad I found the products I did because they give you a natural look which I love.
Above is my Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals foundation in Light with a Bisque concealer. I also have a Medium foundation and Summer Bisque concealer because I find the Light can be a bit too light for me sometimes so I mix them together a little. It’s my favourite foundation because it’s not liquid, it’s actually rock minerals and it treats the skin as well as gives you a really good coverage. I don’t think I would try any other foundation other than Bare Escentuals, it’s just wonderful and so light. You can’t even see that you are wearing it if you have the right shade on! I like the medium coverage brush as well and the concealer brush is really good.
For my lips, my favourites are the Lord & Berry lip stick but I only dab it on my lips as it’s super bright, the Max Factor lip stain, my Topshop lip gloss stick and the Rimmel lip stain and balm. I also use the balm on the Maxfactor lip stain because it dries out my lips a bit. I love the lip stains as they are easy to put on and give you a matte finish but I find they do rub off and leave a cracked effect sometimes, it depends on how dry your lips are.
For my eyes, I love the Avon Anew mascara, it has an eyelash treatment in the one end and a volumising mascara in the other end. I don’t often use the eyelash treatment but the mascara is amazing, it really makes your lashes bold and opens your eyes. My favourite eyeshadow is also from Avon, it’s a two tone purple pencil and I line the bottom of my eyelids with the plum colour and then put a covering of the lilac all over, it sort of gives a gradient look which I like a lot and for my eyebrows, as I have quite blonde eyebrows, I sometimes go over them with the Avon eyebrow pencil just to give them a bit of definition.
I haven’t included the products I use for my daily face regime as I don’t really count them as make up but I use a combination of Murad and Liz Earle. If you want to know more about those then leave a comment and I will work on a post for you all. What make up do you like to use?
