I love my make-up bag, its just a simple grey sequin Suzy smith bag with a pink sequin heart that i got for christmas i just think its very girly and very me and is the perfect size for my everyday make-up.
These are my mini benefits i like to call them lol. California kisses is a blue glittery lip gloss, i think its meant to make your teeth look whiter (Don't quote me on this i'm not 100% sure lol). High beam is a soft pink highlighter i use this mostly under my eyebrows as a kind of brightener when i feel that my make-up is looking a bit flat or lacking something.
Ooh La Lift is an under eye brightener/De-puffer that i use if my eyes are looking a bit tired and puffy.
these are all mini bottle that i have taken from my benefit sets that i no longer use as much, you should be able to buy them on there own in a bigger size bottle or tube, I heard someone say recently that they had discontinued high been (dont quote me on that either) but you should be able to find a similar one.
I have tried quite a few different powder of the last few years as i do use quite allot of it and this has to be my favorite so far its max factor bronzing powder in 01 Golden, it is quite dark and a little bit sparkly so i try not to use to much, you can buy it in most boots or superdrug its about £6.99. I also sometimes use collection 2000 mosaic glow in golden and i thought that was really good aswell it was only about £3 so a much cheaper alternative and also you could buy that in most superdrug or boots stores.
i think that Bourjois Little round pot Blush In 48 Cendre de rose brune is such a lovely blusher i really like the pot you get it in and i think the little brush is perfect for putting it on, it smells sweet like old fashioned make- up and has a slight smell of roses i would say it has a nice glow when you put it on, i really like it and would buy any other one. i got it from boots and cost me £5.49
I got Rimmel special eyes Precision eye liner pencil in 16 Black Magic when i went to Edinburgh for new year and had left my eye liner at home, The local superdrug never had a Bourjois stand so i got rimmel instead, i dont think it works as well as the Bourjois as it didn't go on aswell or last as long but its hand to have.its cost me £2.99 so not to bad.
Bourjois Khole & Contour Eye liner in 01 Noir Expert has got to be my favorite eye liner i find that it goes on well and is very flexible to play around with other styles, it cost about £4.16 and is well worth it. I prefer the eye pencil to the liquid eye liner as im not very good at applying the liquid and end up with it all over my face lol.
I love The collection 2000 Skyscraper waterproof mascara In 17 Black i feel that it goes on really well and gives you a slight fake eyelash look i used to wear false eyelashes all the time dont dont feel like i need them as much now that i used this mascara, its from boots and cost £4.99.
Max factor Masterpiece Max mascara i actually got from a free set from boots at christmas i had bought my mum a make up set and got a box of free goodies with it, I like to wear it when i dont have much make up on as i feel that its not to over powering and can look quite natural. You can get a full size mascara from boots for £9.99.
These are my everyday eye Make-up brushes i use.The top black one is a straight black mac brush in 212 i tend to use that to apply eyeliner on the lid or for a slight colour under my eye lashes, My white and gold hello kitty brush i got with my hello kitty eye shadow set that i got for my christmas it has a fluffy brush at one side and a harder sponge at the other i used the fluffy side for blending mostly and the sponge for applying eye shadow to the inner corner of my eyes. The third brush is my Ruby & Millie Brush that i use to apply my eye shadow to my full eye lid, My Ruby & Millie angled brush i use to add darker colour to my eye lid crease before i blend. I Got my Ruby & Millie brushed as part of a make-up brush set i got from boots a few years ago, but im sure you should be able to buy them separate.
These are my Hello kitty liberty eye shadow set i got with my gold and white brush for christmas, they are in beautiful colourful pots and are really pretty, they are in the colours cream,nude & charcoal.
I Have trouble finding foundation that i like they are usually to runny or to thick for my face but i think this is just the right mix its max factor lasting performance foundation in 105 Soft beige, i think it just covers my face so well it is a little heavy so wouldn't recommend it if you dont wear that much make-up i got it from boots and was around £9.99.
This Barry M Dazzle dust i got from boots, i love how you can get them in so many colours this shade is 024 is a gold/bronze glitter eyeshadow. I tend to wet my brush slightly before putting it on as it goes a bit thicker into a paste almost and i feel that it stands out more its a really lovely colour once its on a kind of reminds me of holiday as it has that glow coming from it. i got mine from boots for around £4.50
You cant have a make-up bag with out tweezers lol i love these tweezers as they are just so girly and cute, they are pink and purple and have a picture of a girl with a skate board on them, i got them as a present a few years ago and have been checking all the shops for them ever since, i like to carry tweezers because you never no when they will come in handy.
i Got this No 17 Va Va Voom in shade So Buff Pumping lip gloss from boots a few weeks ago i loved how shimmery it was, The only thing i dont like about pumping lip gloss is the slight tingle you get when you first put it on, i have quite big lips so tend not to need it, But i loved the colour of this so i though i would give it a try. its really nice on its a sort of bronze/natural colour with a little sparkle. I got it from boots and cost around £3.79.
I love my Urban Decay Big Buddha Brush , its huge so is easy to apply bronzer all over the face and neck and its just so much easier,i have had a few of this and will continue to as long as i can find them lol i dont think you can get it in the shops any more as i have been trying to get a new one but cant see them, but i will hunt one down on line lol am sure it cost me about between £14- £20.
I am in no way a make-up expert or have any real clue about make-up lol but i just thought i would share with you what i have in my make-up bag as i really enjoy when other blogger do so. this is my first blog about make up so go easy on me lol. Any advice for me or ideas would be kindly appreciated.
What do you have in your make-up bag ?
