What’s In My Makeup Bag

I haven’t done a ‘What’s In My Makeup Bag’ before and I’ve been asked quite a bit recently about my favourite/current makeup products so I thought I’d do a post to show you which products I’m currently using for my everyday makeup look.

I’m using this gorgeous baby pink spotted cosmetic bag from Cath Kidston. There’s such a range to choose from and lots of different sizes too, I probably could have done with a bigger one but then I end up filling it with products I didn’t usually use.

I start with a moisturiser, usually Benefit’s Triple Performing Facial Emulsion then add a primer. I’ve recently started using Baby Skin by Maybelline.

I’m currently using Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation, this provides a natural, even all day coverage. It’s light on the skin and perfect for day to day use. They have so many different shades making it easy to find your perfect match.


I’ve been using Maybelline Waterproof Powder for a while now and I’m absolutely loving it. I think I need more of an Ivory colour though as this sometimes seems a little too dark with my pale winter skin.
I tend to to and fro between blusher and bronzer so I keep them both in my makeup bag. The Rimmel Natural Bronzer is a go to product for me and I keep on repurchasing it. The blush I’m currently using is MAC Pressed Amber although I’m on the look out for a more pinky toned blush for Spring.


I’ve already spoken about this New Cid Cosmetics Mascara a lot on my Twitter and there’s not much more I can say. It’s such a great little product. I’ve been using BarryM Kohl Eyeliner daily for my waterline and a little above and below my eyelashes.

What are your favourites from your everyday makeup routine?

    I'm exactly the same with filling up make up bags with stuff I never use – just end up digging through everything to find what I do use on a daily basis! I always like to see what products people use 🙂

      That's why I thought I'd challenge myself with a smaller makeup bag. Now I actually use every product rather than I just storing them in there!

    So many people love the makeup bag. Cath Kidston do some great patterns, I couldn't decide which one to buy.

    I know right! I'm going to buy another on my shopping trip at the end of the month.

    I just bought the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics palette so that's my fave right now 🙂
