Whats in my makeup bag now?
Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, costs £28.50 for 30ml.
I am in love with this foundation you can see my review for it . Had this 6mnths and still struggling to use it all up.
No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream for Normal / Dry skin ,costs £12.95 for 40ml. The added protective power of SPF 15 and 5 * UVA technology to help skin stay youthful, No7 BB is the only way to wear this season’s must-have essential - perfectly-pared back, beautiful skin. See my review for this here.
MUA pressed powder. costs £1 (bargain) . a matte, perfect finish, it helps smooth skin and set foundation.
MAC (limted edition blush) Giggly. I know its not for sale now but I have been using this sparingly and love it, see my review for it here.
MUA Undress me too Palette . Costs £4 . Made up of 12 warm and timeless shades, this palette will suit all skin tones and any occasion.
ELF Radiance Enhancer. Costs £3.75. This multi-use highlighter instantly transforms and enhances features with its glowing veil of warmth and luminosity.
ELF Studio Conditioning Lip Balm Spf 15 . Costs £3.38 . Conditioning Lip Balm, lips get treated to a sheer splash of colour that's super smooth, velvety soft and non-sticky. Not only are these sheer, natural shades beautiful, they're also beneficial, with natural ingredients that condition dry, chapped lips including Vitamins A & E. SPF 15 to protect delicate lips against harmful sun damage.
MAC eyeshadow . Costs £12.50. Highly-pigmented powder. Applies evenly, blends well. Ii love this shadow , it seems to be my choice for those rush mornings .
Smooch lipstick in shade Inferno .Costs £7.50. The new lip collection from Smooch Cosmetics , This shade is my fun lipstick at the moment.
MUA's new 'One Direction' Kiss You lipstick shade Louis a purple tone in pinky nude shade. Costs £3 each but I feel these are soo much creamier compared to MUA's original lipsticks .
MUA' s Lipliners , Costs £1 and I am using between two shades to balance the natural and the summer fun look. I am using softly lined (a nice frosty pink) and red drama .
MUA's Eyeliner. Costs £1 . I have found the favourite for me is the Starry night intence glitter eyeliner. It seems to be more creamy to apply and has a lasting stay. I struggle with eyeliners that dont irritate and this is perfect for me. I am also using the bright orange but not for my eyes. I am using it as a pop of colour to my lips ontop of my daily lipstick.
MUA's Lash Boom Mascara Ultra Black , Costs £3 . I am still debating if I actually like this as I am not sure on the brush. It is rather strange as if its straight with ball on the end which actually makes it difficult for me to not get the acurate coverage I expect from a mascara.
MUA Brow kit. Costs £.3.50 and although I did not like this originally , it has grown on me and using it over my pencil gives me the look I desire.
Last but not least I am using my Real techniques and Ecotools brushes for application.
For the past year I have come across a basket load of makeup that I either dont pick up and make use out of , or I tend to forget about . I have decided that each week I will have one bag and I will use only that bag for the whole week or longer if possible. My plan is to try and use things till they run out instead of wasting them or losing them in the basket.
I decided on this because for years the only things I can think I have actually finished are eyeliners and mascaras, everything else looks pretty untouched because of the hauls .
So for my bag this week . As you can see I love MUA and tend to buy alot of their items because of afordability and great quality . My foundation is my baby- Without a good foundation , your face isnt worth dressing , I say.
I use my No7 BB cream under my foundation to help even out my four different skin tones , it helps alot more than concealers for me.
I tend to use more eye products than anything else because if you read my posts you will know I love cat wing eyeliners and flicks, false lashes are my love because I actually have tiny lashes with no length or volume and many mascaras I have tried have no effect other than making my eyes look darker (below there are none, I ran out and can not buy any due to beauty page challenge). So I am going a whole month without.
