What's In My Makeup Bag? November Edition

15 November 2017

Today I have written a post I wouldn't normally post, it's a little out of my blogging comfort zone however I'm really looking forward to sharing this post with you. As you can tell by the title and the pictures on this post, I'm going to be sharing what's in my makeup bag with you today! I thought it would be a nice idea to go through the products I use daily at the moment and give a brief reason to why I'm loving them so much at the moment. I hope you enjoy this brief post looking into my makeup bag!

Firstly let's look at my main base makeup products! 

Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion Primer
I bought this when I bought my NAKED foundation purely because the girl serving me told me that it was fab. I was also looking for a new primer as my make never seems to last the day, however since using this, I know I'm never going to look back and will always be using this primer!

Urban Decay NAKED Skin Foundation Shade, 3.5 
I was on the hunt for a good foundation that matches my skin colour and I heard great reviews on the NAKED foundation that Urban Decay sell and wow I was not disappointed. It matches my skin tone so well and I'm so happy I have found my perfect foundation at last! I would 100% recommend.

Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer Shade, Cool Medium 2
I'm sure most of you have heard the hype over this concealer and I must admit it is such a great concealer! It matches my skin tone and covers my blemishes up most of the day making it my go to concealer.

Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer Shade, Ivory 
I use this concealer purely for under my eyes to brighten them up and cover those awful dark circles I gain after many late nights!

Bourjois Paris Unifying Powder Shade, Vanilla 
This is a perfect powder. I use it after I have applied my foundation and concealers to lock them in and it definitely makes the overall coverage of my makeup last longer. It also smells super yummy which is definitely a plus!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer 
I bought this a while ago in a Benefit Hoola set and completely forgot about it until I found it in my makeup collection a few weeks ago. I love this bronzer as it's really pigmented and it matches my tan perfectly when I fake tan!

Rimmel London Pink Rose Blush 
I bought this AGES ago and I honestly don't know how it hasn't run out yet as I LOVE it and use it daily! It's such a pretty warm colour and I just love it so much! I would 100% recommend if you are not a massive fan on bright pink blushes as this one is so subtle and warm!

Tanya Burr Illuminating Powder, Warm Bronze 
This is the first Tanya Burr product I have bought and I am very impressed! I only use this when I'm going out as I feel like shimmer can look a little much when I'm just popping to a lecture! However this is definitely my favourite shimmer at the moment as it's so pigmented and this shade blends really well with my bronzer! 

Now on to the rest of the products I use! 

Collection Eye Brow Kit 
I picked this up in a 3 for 2 deal in Super Drug. I only use the lightest shade as the other colours are far too dark for me. The light shade however, matches my brows perfectly and I definitely prefer filling my eyebrows in with shadow than any other brow product.

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion 
I use this when I plan to wear eye shadow and oh man, I love this. It makes my eye shadow stay on and not smudge at all! It's definitely a must have on a night out!

Urban Decay NAKED Heat Palette 
I bought this for myself as a treat to passing my driving text back in September and it's my favourite palette at the moment. The shades are perfect for this time of year and when I have a tan, the bronze colours compliment it so well!

Bourjois Paris Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara 
This is by far my favourite mascara, it's not clumpy, makes my eye lashes curl well and it's just an all round fab mascara!

The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Shade, Windsor Rose 032
This is the shade I grab for most at the moment, as I feel like it's such a pretty subtle shade for when I'm attending lectures at uni! I also love that it's matte and it lasts for quite a while too which means I don't need to constantly reapply!

This post has ended up being quite a wordy one but I do hope you like it. These are all the products I use daily and I LOVE them. I'm so happy with my makeup look at the moment and so happy with how long it lasts for throughout the day. All I want to get now is a setting spray and I'm eyeing up the Urban Decay one.. So maybe when I next upload this post, it may be featured!

Do you use any of these products? 
Have you thought about purchasing/using these products? 
Do you want more makeup posts by me? 

Ta ta for now,

  2. I am super nosey so I absolutely love posts like this! I always feel like they're full of genuine recommendations as well as you wouldn't keep a makeup product in your bag if you didn't genuinely enjoy using it! I definitely need some of that Rimmel concealer at the minute, my eye bags are on another level hahah!
