What's in my make up bag?

So for my first proper post I decided to reveal what's in my (main) make up bag, these are all of the products which I use daily. Pretty much all of these items can be purchased on the high street/at your local drug store. The two Victoria Secret products featured, I purchased in the US and have not seen them on sale at the VS in the UK unfortunately, but apart from that the rest should be easy to find. Enjoy!


Maybelline Satin Liquid foundation in the shade 020 Cameo - one of my all time favourite foundations, provides a brilliant coverage and is really easy to apply.

Smashbox High Definition Healthy FX foundation in F0 Fair - provides a fairly light coverage (although I do prefer something a bit heavier).

L'Oreal Infallible 16 hours concealer in 01 Vanilla - have been using it for years and absolutely love it.

Garnier anti-dark circles roll-on in Fair - I don't really get dark circles but this product is lovely to brighten up the area around your eyes

Victoria Secret Luminous Blush duo in Starlet- A lovely medium pink blusher, not too bright, not too dark, just perfect. 


MAC Mega Metal eyeshadow in Tweet Me - really sparkly and pretty

Bare escentuals eyecolor in the shades in 44073 High style and 44072 Snazzy - absolutely love these two, they're perfect for day and evening wear and blend really well.

Rimmel Exaggerate eyeliner in 001 Black - probably my favourite liquid liner of all time! Very well priced, easy to apply and very durable throughout the day.

Me Me Me Fat Cat lashes mascara - a big fan of this, genuinely gives your lashes a lot of volume.. just a shame it's running out.

Soap and Glory Thick and Fast super volume mascara in Black - have only been using this for a few weeks

L'Oreal Eye Designer crayon in 401 Black Grey (looks black when worn)

Victoria Secret Shimmer Fierce liner duo in Smoke & Mirrors - looks really pretty on, but I find it needs regular reaplication due to smudging

Miss Sporty eye liner in 002 - which I use for my eyebrows 


 As you can probably guess I like very similar shades of pink...

(in order of the swatches)

Rimmel Colour Show Off lipstick in the shade 020 Shake -up pink

Bobbi Brown rich lip colour lipstick in 13 Mod Pink

Sephora Lip Attitude lipstick in Star - really pretty and sparkly but the texture is quite rough due to sparkles in the actual product, but it is so nice that it's worth it!

L'Oreal Glam Shine Volumizer 6 hour gloss in 110 Addictive peach

Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in 440 Her Majesty

The make up bag itself is Bourjois Paris, which I purchased at the Clothes Show in Birmingham a couple of years ago :)
