What's In My Current Make Up Bag?

Well hello there...

I've been blogging for just over a year now, and I have just realised that I have never posted a 'What's in my make up bag?' post before. I know, I know... I'm a bad beauty blogger!
 So, I thought I'd share with you my current make up bag staples.

Let's get started...

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - Light
This concealer has always been my go-to. It covers blemishes, dark circles and redness brilliantly, and it's cheap!

Collection Illuminating Touch Brightening Concealer - Naked 1
This concealer is a new addition to my make-up bag. I love using it under my eyes, to brighten them up, and attempt to make myself look more alive!

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Pink Blossom 2
Another old favourite, it's matte, it's cheap and it stops shine like a pro. 
A right winner!

Rimmel Matte BB Cream - Light
I haven't been wearing much foundation lately, as I've been opting for a BB cream instead. This one is fab, it blends like a dream and gives great coverage. 

Benefit Hoola Bronzer
I've been using this bronzer to lightly contour my cheekbones and jawbone, to add a bit of colour to my face. I love that it's a mid-tone matte bronzer, so it's not too dark for my pale skin, and you can build it up to the shade you want. 

Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick in Gold Bronze
This highlighter is so pretty, I love how it gives a subtle glow, without making me look like a disco ball! 

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
I know, I know... the beauty world has blathered on about this mascara to death. But I along with every other beauty blogger, picked up this free sample with Elle magazine, and I have really been loving it!
It holds a curl amazingly well, lengthens lashes, and gives a fluttery lash effect. A winner!

Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF15
My go-to lip balm, it keeps my lips lovely and soft, in this wet and windy weather.

Elizabeth Arden Lipstick in Desert Rose
I have been raving about this beautiful lipstick, for a while now.
I love the shade, I think it's a great match for my skin tone.
It's so easy to slick on, and make myself look slightly put-together, when I'm rushing out of the door!

I hope you enjoyed this 'What's in my make up bag?' post, What's in your make up bag? What are your make up bag essentials, or go-to products?

Let's be friends!
