So sorry for the lack of blog posts at the moment, I'm right in the middle of my A2 final exams and I'm literally counting down the days until they're over and I will be on a three and a half month ling summer (only 21 days away now!).
I'm off to London this afternoon to ELLE Magazine HQ for an event and I thought I would do a quick post with my makeup bag essentials- you know the products that you just can't leave the house without, I always have them in my bag and they seem to be able to fix whatever happens to my face during the day.
Denman Teasing Comb
My hair tends to get a little flat during the day so this comb is perfect to inject a little bit of volume back into my roots again. The end of it is perfect for sorting out my parting and I can also use it to sort out any knotts in my actual hair
I refilled this mini foundation pot which I got with a sample with my everyday foundation. It is a lot more convenient to carry around with you and it won't break or spill. It's also really easy to refill with more foundation once it gets empty, and because it was a sample it was free!
MAC Studio Fix powder
This is my absolute favourite powder, it's actually a powder foundation and therefore has really good coverage to it. I have quite oily skin so I use this for touch ups throughout the day to stop me from looking shiny at all and to add any extra coverage
The Balm Frat Boy blush
This colour is one which just seems to go with any makeup look, meaning I don't have to constantly switch up which blush I carry with me. The packaging is very slim and is very lightweight so is perfect for carrying with you
Too Faced Melted Lipstick in 'Melted Peony'
This is one of my favourite nude coloured lipsticks, it's still quite pink and therefor is very easy to wear on an everyday basis. My natural lips are such a light shade that I don't like to not wear a lipstick so this is perfect. As it has the doefoot applicator it is very easy to apply on the go and doesn't need a lip liner with it
Shu Uemura eyelash curlers
These are one of my holy grail tools, I have fairly short and straight natural lashes and therefore I need these to give them a bit of a perk up half way through the day. I find curled lashes make your eyes look instantly bigger and you look more awake, perfect!
Mac Studio Finish concealer
This is another holy grail product, as you can see from how much I have used it! It is very high coverage and although the packaging isn't very idea for on the go- it is my favourite for touch ups! Make sure you take hand sanitiser with you too to avoid any bacteria transfers
Chanel lipstick in 'La Deseree'
This is my absolute favourite red lipstick, it is perfect for making you look like you have put a lot more effort in to your makeup than you actually have and it lasts really well without a lip liner so you don't need to carry one too!
L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara
This is a re-purchase of mine, as I mentioned with the eyelash curlers- I feel that good eyelashes make your eyes look much bigger and more awake and this is one of my favourite mascaras to help achieve this!
What are your makeup bag essentials? Let me know in a comment!
I was sent the Too Faced Melted Lipstick, however this does not influence my opinion on it and it is 100% honest as always. You can read more of my thoughts on it here in my 'My Too Faced Face' post
