What is in my Make Up Bag - January 2015

What is in my Make Up Bag - January 2015

My Make Up Bag
I am in my boyfriend's house today and had not planned a blog post or taken any pictures for a post I could work on. I was feeling sorry for myself when I thought - wait this is the perfect opportunity to to a blog on my make up bag!  

I travel to and fro between my house and my boyfriend's house and, although I have a drawer with some bits and bobs, I always tend to bring my make up bag forward and back with me. 

My brushes
I bring the things I need to do my make up for whatever occasion. This is my new make up bag which was a gift from my boyfriend's sister for my birthday and I am obsessed with it (if you have read by liebster post I'm sure you already know this)! 

Tonight we are having a few friends around for a board games night so its nice and casual.
I have a few of my brushes with me- My 35N Make Up Forever foundation brush and my Real Techniques buffing brush, contour brush and deluxe crease brush. These would be the brushes I use the most. 
My foundations and concealer

My favourite Rimmel Match Perfection foundation (here's my review of it)  has just run out so I am now using Oriflame Studio Artist Foundation which my good friend gave me. I love this foundation and it smells amazing which is a plus. I use the Sleek Bare Skin Foundation in Praline for contouring and find that it works very well with the Oriflame foundation. Finally I have my old reliable concealer - Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory ( also reviewed here ).

My powders
I have a few different powders. Firstly my Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light. It has to be the most useful palette ! I use it everyday for contouring. I have my new Primark P.S. Love... bronzer which I am testing out at the moment and my Natural Collection Pressed Powder for setting my make up. 

Eye Make up
I have my Sleek Brow Kit in Dark which is my favourite brow kit at the moment, my favourite Sleek eye palette i-Divine Oh So Special 658, Collection Intense Colour Kohl Pencil and Rimmel The Max Volume Mascara. 

Seventeen and Collection
Finally I have my two favourite lipsticks at the moment! Seventeen Stay Pout -Going Steady and Collection Gothic Glam- Seduction (reviewed here). 

And that is the extent of my make up bag! What is in your make up bag? I would love to hear from you.

I will be doing reviews and swatches of these products soon so stay tuned!

Thanks for reading!

I'm off to start playing the board games!  Enjoy your night :)
