I, like many other beauty bloggers, tend to have a very mad obsession with make-up and tend to have alot more than I really should. While most of it is stored in my make-up drawers (One day I will do a make-up storage blog post) there is a small part that is kept in a make-up bag. The make-up bag is not massive but not small either and I keep things in there that are my go-to products. If I wake up and just want to apply a nice simple face of make-up with products I know work well for me and my skin I just simply grab my make-up bag, If i'm staying at a friends over night it tends to be my make-up bag I take instead of anything else so I thought it would be good to show you what I keep in there.
Now without waffling on too much lets just get started. Firstly this is my current make-up bag. It's a very shabby chic floral patterned design. I picked this up a couple of months ago from my local Superdrug for around £3.99.
Now on to the base. These are my favourite products for creating a base for my face.
To the left is MAC matchmaster foundation. This is a medium coverage foundation but is buildable if you want a fuller coverage. Another benefit to this foundation is it comes with an SPF 15 so perfect for daytime wear. I use colour 1.5. Next to that is a sample size of Benefits The Porefessional primer which I obviously use before the MAC foundation, I do have a full size of this in my make-up collection but this little travel size is ideal for my make-up bag. Then my two concealers of choice are Collection 2000 Lasting perfection concealer in number 1 fair which is my favourite concealer for any blemishes and Clinique Airbrush concealer in number 4 Neutral fair for under my eyes.
Moving on to face products.
Next on to the eyes:-
Now my lips:-
Finally on to the brushes:-
In my make-up bag I just keep a small collection of 4 brushes. Starting to the right is a small Kabuki brush from Prestige, perfect for applying face powder or bronzer. To the right and starting at the top is a simple foundation brush from Sephora which I picked up when I was in Milan earlier this year. Under that is a basic small eyeshadow brush by Cecelia Bertwell which you can get from Boots and finally at the bottom is a blusher brush again by Prestige.
Thats it for whats in my make-up bag. Just a simple collection of make-up to create the perfect simple every day face. What must have products do you keep in your every day make-up bag?
