What’s in my Make up bag this month?

Hiya beautiful ladies, thought I would start with a fact today and that is, that I’m nosey. HUGLEY. I love ‘What’s in my bag?’ You Tube videos, ‘Outfits of the day’ videos, and anything that allows me to be nosey. That being why I’m writing this post. I know I’m not the only nosey lady out there, so here’s for you that will admit it, my ‘What’s in my Make up bag this month?’ post.
I change my makeup quite regularly because I get bored of products easily (unless I immediately l fall in love with them), so ill try and update you with any products I have fallen head over heels for in posts to come.

So first things first, foundation. I’m currently fishing for a new foundation and Estee Lauder offer a service, where they match you up with a foundation and also give you a seven day sample of the product, the ‘IMATCH‘ service. I LOVE SAMPLES! I also love this foundation! It’s the double wear light in shade two and gives a nice sheer finish , perfect for my dry skin. Get yourselves down to the Estee Lauder counter for a free seven day trial.

Next up is YSL Touche Eclat, I love using this under eyes to fake eight hours sleep. I find myself falling in and out of love with this product though as the steep price of around £20 puts me off replacing it when It runs out.

Sleek Luminous pressed powder, my must have powder of the moment. What with the summer weather upon us I like a bit of shimmer to my skin, and this powder provides just that. Also has a SPF of 15 in!

MAC PATINA, LOVE! If you haven’t tried it, get to your nearest MAC counter and have a play. It suits all eye colours/skin tones etc, and is a real beautiful colour. A warm brown, that is perfect for day wear. I couldn’t be without it.

Sleek Chaos palette. The four colours in the right hand corner make up my eyebrows.
I’m a sucker for a eyeliner and my top two right now are AVON supershock black shimmer and Estee Lauder double wear in 03 bronze.

Avon super shock mascara, gives great build up that I’m really rather addicted to Appling 550 coats of mascara just to see how big I can get my lashes.

Bourjois bronzing powder in 51. Looks like chocolate, smells likes sweets, applies like a damn good bronzer should.

My most applied lipsticks have been Estee Lauder Crystal Baby and Barry M 53. Crystal baby is a most beautiful nude that really does suit everyone, the texture is unbelievable moisturizing and it smells divine. The packaging is so expensive looking as well, that I find myself sometimes applying it just to show it off!
Barry Ms coral is bang on trend right now, and is a good cheaper alterative to that of the higher brands.

Last but by no means least is my all time favourite Jemma Kidd palette. The palette contains a finishing powder, lipgloss, one cream eyeshadow, two powder eye shadows and a blush. Everything a girl needs when you have to do your make up on a train/bus/car. This palette is so wearable and has not moved out of my make up bag since I brought it.

Thought id just let you know, my make up bag was FREE from Space NK. Aren’t they nice!
Hope I haven’t bored you all to much! Enjoy your Easter Peoples.
