What's in my make-up bag?

Hi! I'm getting so impatient waiting for my nails to grow, hence this pretty random non-nail post. I've seen some bloggers do this though, so I thought I'd buy some time and do the same! I am pretty horrible at doing make-up in all honesty, so you're not going to see some amazing kit here, it's basically just essentials.

This is my cute as hell make-up case that my cousin got me from Bloomingdales on her trip to NYC.

Click the jump to see the rest :)

L'Oreal True Match Minerals foundation powder in Golden Natural. I prefer this to liquid foundations as it doesn't feel like it smothers my skin. I'm looking to invest in a good primer though, any recommendations?

Natural Collection blush in Pink Cloud. I'm not big on blush and wanted the most natural looking shade I could find. I did try and upgrade with a MAC blush but actually ended up coming back to this one.

MAC eye shadow in Carbon. I used to trowel this on when I was younger! Now I only use a tiny bit.

MAC eye kohl in Smolder.

Maybelline Master Precise liquid eyeliner pen in black. I love this because you can get a perfect flick, I'm just worried it'll dry out on me!

Benefit Bad Gal mascara. This is much more subtle than you'd expect, but I prefer it like that. 

MAC clear Lipglass. This is probably my fourth tube...I leave it EVERYWHERE.

MAC Hello Kitty tinted lip conditioner in Popster. This smells DELICIOUS. This is perfect for a hint of colour but I usually end up licking it off. Must stop that.

Finally, my Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box (and primer, not pictured) believe it or not this fits perfectly in my make-up case. I LOVE this palette, I can always find a colour for whatever occasion. Plus the design is so cute!

And that's that. It could probably use some additions. Must get primer!!



  1. Bare Minerals do a very good primer, which would probably be perfect for your mineral foundation. They have counters at Debenhams, in case you're wondering. x

  2. Urban Decay are my fave ever ever eyeshadow makers :) all their palettes are sooo pretty! And the Hello Kitty Lip Conditioner is sooo cute :) I love these posts xxx

  3. i have that exact urban decay pallet! but ive used it so much the top doesnt stay on and im almost out of my favorite colors :(

    1. I think I'll run out of Oil Slick or Uzi first...by far my favourites!

  4. That palette has gorg colours! & how cute is your makeup bagggg!!
    Iv given you some awards :) please check them out xx

  5. ooo fun post..want that UD palette

  6. I like the colours. The urban decay eyeshadows are very good at least the old formula I don't know about the new formula :)

    1. I didn't even know they'd changed the formula to be honest!


I appreciate all comments, but please do not leave links. Thank you! :)
