I’ve always found it very interesting to see what other people have in their make up bags, what are their go-to products and what products they think are good! Many of us are influenced by our friends, but also we’re influenced by what we read in magazines and what celebrities use. I thought I’d let you know what I’ve currently got in my make up bag in case you were interested! Most of what I use has been based on reading about what other people are using, recommendations by friends, or what I’ve tried and tested! I do have a few go-to products that I always buy, however, like many other aspects of my life, I love change and trying new things! Unlike many other people, I use different moisturisers, different shampoos and different foundations depending on what I’m feeling like on the day or what my skin needs! Mixing it up is the new beauty trend!

So what is in my makeup bag?

The three staples in my makeup bag are NARS Bronzer in Laguna and also NARS Blush in Orgasm, and YSL’s Touche Eclat. I swear by these three products and I’m pretty sure that most of my friends use these products as well!


My current foundation is Luminous Silk by Giorgio Armani. I’ve tried many foundations, but this is light, silky smooth and has great stay-on power. There are a few new foundations on the market that I’d like to try just to mix it up a bit, but it’s definitely one that will stay in my make-up rotation! If I don’t feel like wearing foundation, I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser which gives a light coverage. I generally wear this on weekends.


In terms of eyes, I’ve tried and tested so many eye liners because I’ve never really found one that doesn’t smudge so that I have panda eyes! However, recently I think I’ve struck eyeliner gold with MAC Fluidline Liquid Gel Liner. It stays on the whole day and is very easy to put on. I love it so much that I have it in black and also in blue (seriously try blue eyeliner – it brings out the brown in your eyes if you have brown eyes!). I use Lancome Hypnose mascara and a range of Stila eye shadows. To set my eyeshadow and eye liner, I use Chanel Poudre Douce pressed powder.


For lips, I like to keep it simple with lipgloss. In my makeup bag I am using a NARS lipgloss, but I am also using Lancome Juicy Tubes and AB Makeup Lip gloss!


I could go on and on but perhaps I’ll save my skin care favourties for another entry! Too much to digest for any of you that might read this! So that’s what is currently in my make-up bag! There’s no doubt that this will change, but at the moment I highly recommend the items in my bag!


I hope you’re all enjoying the content we’re producing! I’m very excited about the articles we have coming up this month! Stay tuned!

Have a happy week!
