It's been a while since we had a rummage through my makeup bag, isn't it? The contents have certainly changed over the last few months, though there are a few old faithfuls that have stood the test of time (for me that's around 6 months haha). So I thought I would give you a little makeup rundown...
Let's start off with my base products:
I've been trying out the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation over the last few months and I'm really beginning to love it. It's a medium to full coverage foundation, but it still manages to feel weightless on the skin, which I like. A little goes a long way, so you do have to make sure it's completely buffed into the skin, things can get a bit cakey if you use too much product.
Remember when I said some not so nice things about the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer, well I've had a change of heart, which you will know about if you saw my "Beauty Mixology Post" Hey, I'm a Gemini, it's a girls prerogative to change her mind, right? Anywho, it's great at hiding my under eye bags, nuff said!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette
This multi-purpose palette has been a big hit with me since Christmas. I use the yellow toned power for setting my under eye concealer, and mix together both of the blushes for a fresh, healthy glow. Sometimes I use the highlighter, but recently I've been reaching for my beautiful Becca Afterglow Palette because you can't go wrong with a Becca highlight, the shade Moonstone, oh baby... what a beauty!
I've been super lazy with my eyeshadow lately, mainly because I've been wearing my glasses instead of contacts (don't ask, it's a very mundane story). So a one wash shade is all I've been reaching for, the Makeup Geek "Creme Brule" Eyeshadow does a fantastic job of adding a bit of dimension and colour in one sweep. I have a whole eyeshadow centered post in the works, so keep an eye out.
Due to me having to wear my glasses, I really need my lashes to stand out, so I put a few coats of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara on my top lashes. While I like this mascara for a bit of volume, I don't love it as much as my Seventeen Doll'd Up Mascara, that is the only one I put on my bottom lashes and trust to not smudge and crumble all down my face!
Moving onto lip products:
So, that's the current contents of my makeup bag, I'd love to know what products are residing in yours?
