My Current Make Up Picks #1

I wasn't actually planning to do a post like this but last month i ordered myself a new make up bag and it's finally arrived. It's so pretty and i just wanted an excuse to share it with you so i thought I'd also tell you what make up products I'm wearing the most too.



My Current Make Up Picks #1

I'm having an awful lot of trouble trying to find the perfect size make up bag. I want one big enough to fit in my most needed make up items in but isn't so big that it takes up the entirety of my handbag. I thought I'd found the answer to my problems when i stumbled across this lovely little nautical number on Ebay but this is actually a lot smaller than i expected and it can't really fit much in, to give you an idea of the scale of it - it won't fasten if i put my face powder in. It looks pretty in the photos though doesn't it?

I've been using pretty much the same product day to day recently, it's a really quick and easy make up routine and it looks like I've spent much longer than 10 minutes doing it. I've just realised that all of these products are high street and surprisingly, a lot of them are from Maybelline too - this post has not been sponsored by them, I'm just genuinely enjoying at a lot of their products.

For my base, I'm still really loving using Maybelling Dream Velvet Soft Matte Foundation it just gives such a natural and flawless finish. For any extra coverage or my under eyes, I've been using the Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer i do like this concealer but it's not my favourite, I'm just trying to use it up as there isn't a lot left and I've been setting all this in place with Seventeen Miracle Matte Face Powder. I finish my base off with the Fashionista Blush in Rose Shine I'm really loving this at the moment, it's such a gorgeous rosy pink and it just adds a really lovely pop of colour to the cheeks.

I love applying eyeshadow but I've been opting for the much more easier option of an eyeshadow stick, it's just so quick and easy to apply it all over and then blend it out and you're done. I've been using Nyx Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in French Fries, it looks and swatches like a coppery toned brown but once blended it becomes a much softer brown shade. As usual, i wing my liner using Maybelline Master Precise Liner, the nib on this brush is really long and thin which really help with controlling the application. Ive not included a mascara in this because I've been switching them up each day. I've been filling my brows with Maybelline Brow Satin - it's really quick and easy to use and its great for a really natural brow.

My lip colour does switch up a lot but I've really been enjoying using the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Matt Lip 3d Lip Sculpt & Colour in Chocoberry - it's a really gorgeous deep pink - it has a slight brown tone to it. It's such a gorgeous colour and i don't have any shades like this in my collection.

So that is all my current make up picks, also if you have any recommendations for small make up bags let me know! What make up products are you loving?
