Makeup bag at the moment!

Come and have a nosey at what I keep in my makeup bag, It's actually one of those acrylic draws that everyone went crazy about a few years ago. Bloggers made me buy it. But that didn't sound right so I stuck to makeup bag as this is what I would have in a bag if I was travelling. Basically I've been rambling about my every day makeup but in a very long winded way... Get on with it Liv!

Base - L'oreal Stay Matte Primer! It's incredible, makes your skin feel ever so soft and always manages to create a smoothing base hiding any pores and blending out any imperfections that you want to cover. There is so much in one tube too which is excellent value for money as it lasts for a long time. It has a mattifying effect too which which is what I always look for, it is very similar to the Smash box Oil free primer which I also love but this one is a lot cheaper.


Foundation - L'oreal Stay Matte Foundation.  Again it is a matte finish which is so important to me as I get oily AF this is the only one I have tried that sticks to it's word of actually working! It is waterproof too which I have tested at the gym as I get very sweaty and I can still walk out with a flawless face because of how good this lasts. It also never seems to get cakey no matter how much you build it up. Always a plus!

Powder - Rimmel Stay Matte - My holy grail of powders, I have tried others but always seem to end up with this. It mattifies the face, sets foundation in place and does the job really!


Contour - Nars Cheek Studio - The face palette of all palettes! It has a contour, bronzer and four blushes! I use the contour and bronzer everyday to the point where I've hit pan now, Recently I started using the blushes too. I swirl them all together to create a gorgeous natural blush shade. I love the fact that it's all in one palette too so it's easy to just grab and go.


Brows - Benefit Precisely My Brows - I've actually just used the last of this pencil which makes me so sad! On one side it has a really fine eyebrow pencil that creates natural looking brows. The best part is that it lasts for ages, no smudging just great looking brows all day. It twists up so you don't have to sharpen and it also has a spoolie brush as the opposite end so you have all of your brow needs in one!


Brows - Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Filler - This isn't essential for brow routine but I always like to set mine in place so they last longer. This uses a paddle brush to comb through the hairs and even out the brows to leave them looking fuller. I use this to set over the top of the pencil but to also use on no makeup days when I still want amazing looking brows. I just sweep this through to fill in any sparse areas so they look natural but better.


Mascara - Benefit lash - My all time fave lash product, it is called rollar for a reason as it helps to really curl the lashes and lift them up creating fuller looking eyelashes. Mine are crappy and take a lot to keep them in hold but this is something I've found to alway, aways work.


This is just my every day makeup bag essentials, I use a few other bits from time to time like concealer but that isn't an every day thing so I've kept to the basics! Products here are things I have gone back to time and time again and ones I can really rely one!

What's in your makeup bag?
