MY MAKEUP BAG

Cocotte Pouch (Handmade in France) – Etsy
I thought I would show a little delve into my makeup bag because its forever changing around and I always LOVE having a snoop into other people’s makeup bags! I was browsing Etsy the other day and I am usually so particular with makeup bags but I saw this and went straight to the checkout!
Here are some things I use day to day and always shove into my bag to take with me.  
Clarins Instant Concealer in 3 
This is my newest product so I am still trailing it but I am loving it so far. Great build able coverage, a good colour match for me if a little light but has a natural brightening finish. Would recommend so far. 
Charlotte Tilbury ‘Bond Girl’
My favourite lipstick of the moment. It is described as a chic natural berry which is spot on. I find its a flushed, sexy, defining & naturally deep shade which I love for everyday because its not as intense as a red and isn’t as bright as usual berry shades. Its also buttery soft.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
This isn’t always in my makeup bag, it would only be in there if I need to do my makeup on the go but I have been enjoying this a great deal lately. I find it is a medium to full coverage and you need a light hand as it can quickly become too thick but I mix it with illuminating fluid. Great everyday and/or night out foundation. 
Loreal Elixir Lipgloss in Nude Ballet 
A great little nude lipgloss to have and to chuck in your handbag. Its a flattering and plumping natural nude shade and would suit many skin types. Its not too sticky and lasts a good amount of time too. I also love the packaging! 
Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter 
This is a well-known product for a good reason. I wouldn’t say it ‘perfects’ your lips exactly but it gives a lovely subtle comfortable gloss and the colours are very flattering. It also smells delightful. It is worth the money and I am craving this in more shades already!
Sephora Lip liner
Nothing to yell about but these are very handy little liners to have around. They come in a great range of shades and I wear them on their own without lipstick most of the time. I carry this around incase I ever want to chuck on a deep berry, sexy lip shade.
Bourjois 1 Second Mascara
This is a great lengthening and volumising mascara from the get-go, whereas with alot of other mascaras I like to let them dry out a little before they get good, this one doesn’t take long to have an effect. Its a thick brush so not great for catching the small lashes but it packs a punch. 
Bobbi Brown Long-wear shadow stick in Golden Bronze 
I pop this in my bag for anytime when I may want to jazz up my eye when i’m on the go. Its lightweight and is so easy to use because its easily blend-able and the colour is a bronze natural shade.

Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener – Peach
I have been using this recently in place of or alongside my Bobbi brown corrector which comes in a pot and this is easier to blend underneath the eye. It comes in the same shade which matches perfectly and it feels much lighter on the skin than the pot version even though i love that too. This will be perfect for summer.
Maybelline The Eraser eye Concealer
This is a product I had wanted to try out for a long time and so I keep it in my makeup bag at the moment while i’m still testing it out. I love this so far. Extremely light consistency, great for brightening up ender the eyes but I actually use this on other areas of my face too. Its great for touch ups during day because of its lighter consistency, you can apply a good amount and it will never look cakey.

Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish pressed powder (8 Soft honey)
If you want to set your face for the day without looking flat and powdery, or to touch up during the day without adding anymore heavy product or colour to your face then this is for you. I am hooked on this and its a holy-grail product for me! Its oil-free, Oil absorbing and its also lasted me a very long time. Its the best setting powder I have used. 

I hope you liked this little peek into my makeup bag, let me know of any other products you have to have with you and that are great to carry around during the day!
