Inside My Makeup Bag | Collab

Today's blog post is in collaboration with the lovely blogger, Laura. Her blog can be read here!! Her post will be live on Tuesday so check her post out when it goes live and send her some love!

I always carry my makeup with me to touch up through the day when I am out and about or at work or when I am going away for the weekend etc. My favourite way of carrying my makeup about is using this large Ted Baker Makeup Bag. It is quite large so it means all my makeup fits in perfectly. I think the design of this bag is so gorgeous with its rose gold hardware zip. The pattern on the bag reminds me a lot of an old village with lots of little buildings. I absolutely love the design of this bag. 

I like to carry a primer, foundation and concealer. My primer of choice is of course the Too Faced HangoveRX primer|REVIEW.  My favourite foundation at the moment is the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation,  it is a lovely light and dewy foundation. My favourite concealer for taking in my makeup bag is the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, it is very full coverage so is perfect for concealing under the eyes and also covering any blemishes. 

For eyeshadow, to cut down on space I like to take the Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Himalia.  It is such a lovely gold shade which is perfect for a wash of eyeshadow all over the mobile eyelid. For mascara I almost always take the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. It adds both length and volume to the lashes which is perfect for both day and night. 


For contour, my favourite product is the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium and to bronze I always bring my Too Faced Milk Chocolate Solei Bronzer.  For blusher I enjoy bringing either Benefit's Rockateur or Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blusher in Tipsy. I normally bring two highlighters with me, one for a more natural makeup look - the Laura Mercier Baked Highlighter in 01.  For a more intense highlight I love using Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal.


I try to avoid an over pack lip products because when I do I end up packing every possible lip colour. MAC's lipliner in Subculture is a perfect nude/pink lipliner which doubles up as a great all over lip colour. I also like to take MAC Soar and Velvet Teddy for a slightly deeper nude.
