Inside My Make Up Bag: Day-to-Day Edition

Sunday, 15 October 2017

First of all, I absolutely adore make up. When I saw this make up bag from Rock on Ruby, I realised I had to get it because it's so true. This is, sadly, only a small selection of my make up- but these are some of my favourite day to day products I use.

i. Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks- I have the shades Very Victoria and Pillowtalk. Both shades are perfectly creamy and matte. I also have the Pillowtalk lip liner which I use with both lipsticks.

ii. Lime Crime Matte Velvetines in Riot- a new addition to my make up bag, and this colour is so different to what I usually use- I love it!

iii. Yves St Laurent Touche Eclat- the ultimate concealer. Enough said!

iv. TooFaced Lip Injection- I mainly use this for nights out to be honest, but everybody loves a good lip plumper. The stinging is just about bearable.

v. Sephora Eyeshadow- something I wouldn't not put on! I usually use this as a base for when I'm doing a glittery eye.

vi. All Nighter Setting Spray- For me, this is the best setting spray I've ever used. I have used the NYX matte setting spray but I feel like my make up doesn't move when I use All Nighter.

vii. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer- Another best for me- I've used a fair few different primers and none quite compare to this one. It evens out my skin and helps me apply my make up evenly too!

viii. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick- my go to cheekbone highlighter. I have the NYX contour palette which I use for contouring on nights out- but I always use my Bobbi with it.

ix. Modern Renaissance Palette by Anastasia Beverley Hills- a must have in my opinion. Read my review on this (amongst other palettes) here.

x. Clinique High Impact Mascara- I genuinely love this mascara- although I haven't had it very long and am on the hunt for a mascara which makes my eyelashes flutter. Desperately waiting for the release of Urban Decay's Troublemaker Mascara into Debenhams!

xi. Benefit Lash Glue- I love the little glue which comes with Eylure lashes, however, they've recently changed their lashes and they don't fit my eyes as well as they used to- so I've made the transition to mink lashes which don't come with glue, some Benefit lash glue is a must for me.

xii. Clinique Pore Refining Solutions- I use this to attempt to hide my forehead wrinkles... I use the word attempt because I often forget!

xiii. Clinique Superbalanced Makeup- I'm all about Clinque for my base face make up. This goes on well and doesn't feel too heavy on my face! I mainly wear liquid foundation when I'm going out.

xiv. Clinique Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette- Another product I mainly use when I'm going out- along with the NYX contouring palette- I feel this gives more depth of colour to the contour.

xv. Clinique Superpower Double Face Powder in Matte Beige- I love this powder and I often wear it by itself on a day to day basis- it evens out my skin tone and provides full matte coverage.

Have you ever used any of these products? What do you think of them? What's in your make up bag?
