What's In My Makeup Bag

I do believe that this is my first What's In My Makeup Bag Blog Post! I can't believe that I have never  shared what I cram into my makeup bag! But hey, now is a good a time as any.

I got this amazing pink glittery Skinnydip Makeup Bag from my sister for Christmas, yes the glitter goes everywhere, yes it is so totally worth it.

I have packed it full of makeup I got just before and for Christmas so I have got quite a selection now.


I have recently bought this MUA foundation which is a new one for me but I have been enjoying using it. I tend to go for a matte foundation anyway as I find it covers up blemishes better and that way it seems like I have clearer skin. Oh, the beauty of makeup.

I also use a MUA powder on top of my foundation to set it, I have been using this one for years now and I wouldn't dream of buying another one now. I do tend to buy several when I do buy them as they never seem to have the right colour when I do actually need it.

I got this beautiful MAC blusher for Christmas which is such an incredible shimmery pink colour. It goes on so nicely, like a dream! It is called 'Just A Wisp' and is one of their Mineralize Blushers.

I also have been using the Rimmel Kate Moss Sculpting Palette* in 002 Coral Glow which is perfect for contouring and exactly colours that I would use as well. Especially the Coral Blusher, it's not too bright which is what I like about it.


Oh gosh, where do I start. I absolutely always have a black pencil eyeliner in my makeup bag, I wouldn't be able to live without it.

I have also been loving the Rimmel Scandaleyes Liquid Eyeliner*. It has been a while since I have used a liquid eyeliner as I would usually just use a felt eyeliner but mine is running out. I have enjoyed using the Rimmel Scandaleyes one as it gives a definite, bold black line and I am all about that.

The Rimmel Magnif'eyes Eye Contouring Palette* in 002 London Nudes Calling is actually stunning. On the back it has a diagram for which order to use the eyeshadows in, very much like contouring and it works amazingly! I'm off to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this weekend and I will most definitely be using this eye palette!

Lastly for eyes, the one product to make them perfect, the Rimmel Wonderful Mascara*. I have been using this and also Benefit they're Real Mascara but I have to say the Rimmel Mascara works wonders for my lashes. It makes them so soft and look shiny, even when I'm not wearing makeup, which may have to do with the Argan Oil it has in it. My gosh it is incredible.


A lip product that I always have with me is the MAC lipstick in Peach Blossom. It's the first colour that I bought as I completely fell in love with it, and I am making my way through my second lot very quickly!

I have also been wearing the Rimmel Kate Most Lipstick* in 56 Boho Nude. I love the packaging, anything metallic is a winner for me, and I also love the colour of this one as it feels so much more sophisticated.


Naturally I have crammed as much as humanly possible into my makeup bag.

I also have Rose Gold Tweezers and a Blemish Wand from Vintage Cosmetics. These are both absolute life savers when I need them!

I tend to keep a face mask handy for when I need a bit of a pamper. This is one my sister got me for Christmas, it is a dead sea deep cleansing face mask, boy does my skin need it!

I'm also loving this Nails Inc Nail Varnish in baby pink, or Whitehall to be more exact. It goes with pretty much every outfit and matches my Kate Spade bag and Pandora Bracelet. So I'm all matchy matchy.

I also try to keep a Lush Lip Scrub in my makeup bag, as my lips do get dry and this gets away all the dead skin and leaves them feeling SO soft. I'm loving the Sugarplum Fairy one at the moment.

I also had to show you these beauties. Yes, you are seeing correctly, the most incredible Harry Potter Wand Makeup Brushes. My boyfriend is the best.

If you made it to the end here, I must congratulate you, this was one hell of a blog post, and much longer than expected. Does anyone else keep this much in their makeup bag?!

What are your must have makeup bag essentials?
