what's in my makeup bag..

I thought I would do something a little different today and show you what is in my makeup bag. At the moment I'm using an Elemis light blue bag and I like the fact that it is quite big. My mum bought me this for Christmas!

In my makeup bag I have a few of my essential makeup items that I use to create my everyday makeup look.

Healthy Mix Foundation
I always use healthy mix foundation by boujois. I always end up going back to this foundation. I love how you are able to build up the coverage and I find the colour range is brilliant and it matches my skin tone perfectly I use shade vanilla 52.

Duo Eyelash Glue
I recently purchased duo eyelash glue and I think it's absoultly AMAZING. My eyelashes will literally stay on all day without peeling or coming loose. When I run out I will defiantly be repurchasing this product.

Liquid Eyeliner
I picked up a really cheap liquid eyeliner from Asda, I've had it for a good couple of months now and it hasn't dried up I love the nib as it creates great fine line.

Elf Cool Bronzer
Elf has recetly opened in Cardiff and what a beautiful shop it is! I bought a few makeup goodies from there. I love the Cool Bronzer,however it is quite dark but used in moderation it creates a lovely healthy glow.

Benefit Brow zings
A few months ago I had my eyebrows done by 'HD Brows' and have been keeping them looking fresh with this amazing brow kit! The pigmented wax is perfecting for shaping my brows and keeping them in order. The shaded powder is perfect for setting my brows. I also find the mirror really handy and the little tweezers which come with the product perfect for travelling.

Collection Lasting Perfection Powder
I use this powder to set my makeup. I have only been using it for a few days it seems to do the job, but i have used other powders in the past which I have preferred.

Maxfactor Flipstick
The pigmentation in this lipstick is out of this world it is long wearing, bright and bold. It creates the perfect looking lip. I love that you have two colours in one product so you can switch it up if you like.
