This is my makeup bag, its Betsey Johnson and I got it as a christmas gift a few years ago. I think its really pretty, and its also the perfect size for holding my makeup, but still being able to fit in my handbag.
A shot of the inside. apologies for the messy state! SO the first two products are MAC Skin Base Visage -£18.00 and the foundation I use which is MAC Studio fix fluid in NC15 - £19.50 (Yes very pale I know!) I find that MAC gives me the best coverage, although my skin does not require much coverage, but I also feel they hold the best range of shades and that this particular shade is the best I've found for my skin tone.
17 Hide & Chic Eye brightening concealer in light beige- £4.99
17 was never a brand I would've thought of buying, but when I got this for free during freshers week, I realised that this concealer is very good, and nearly perfect match to my foundation, luckily I do not need to use concealer much on my skin, mostly under my eyes, but that this is a very good concealer.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Blackest black - £4.99
I like mascara, and these are two of my favourites, I have lots of others but these are the two I took home with me from university. The Rimmel mascara is a lot better than I expected it to be before I tried it, and the Maybelline Mascara is one I've been using pretty much since I started wearing makeup. Creature of habit when it comes to beauty!
Barry M Kohl Pencil -£2.99
Rimmel glam-eyes eyeliner- £5.29
Models Own Pro eyeliner- £6.00
This makes it look like I use lots of Eyeliner when i actually dont. I do use the kohl pencil a lot, but i rarely use liquid eyeliner, as I cannot for the life of me put it on. I have tried and tried and practised for ages, but I just can't do it.The rimmel was free when I bought mascara, while the Models own one came from a goody bag I got at the clothes show in December. I use the brown eyeshadow and the Rimmel eyebrow pencil to fill in my invisible eyebrows. such a curse being fair sometimes!
Esteé Lauder signature Lipstick in 126 Nectarine -£19.00
MAC Lustre Lipstick in A81 Ladybug -£13.50
Having only recently started wearing Lipstick, I have discovered that Red lipstick suits me, and so its now the colour of choice for me. The Esteé Lauder lipstick, i find very drying on my Lips and also Im not overly fond of the colour as it is a little shimmery for my liking. However, the MAC lipstick is my favourite and i love the solid plain colour and the texture of it. It wears very well, and needs very little re-applications.
Rimmel Match Perfection Compact in True Ivory -£6.99
I really like this blusher, as it clearly needs replacing soon, and I feel the shade suits me well and its really well pigmented. This compact is what i take in my clutch on nights out as it mattifies my skin, and stops me looking shiny in photos.
Lastly, I know it isn't in my makeup bag but these are the eyshadows I use. This is Urban Decay Volume 2 and I got it as i gift for Christmas two years ago, and its still going strong. I like some colours better than others as is common with palletes. The colour thats nearly done is Sellout and I find it makes a nice base colour for everyday, and the blue shades remain untouched as I don't really like Blue eye shadow.I'm going to promise to try and post more, but sometimes uni work will have piled up on me. Im going on a shopping spree next week so I will post all the things I bought.
