Last night I had my makeup bag out to get my mascara out for this post and I decided that I would take a few quick snaps to show what I currently have stored in there. The last time this was packed up was for the #WhatBloggersDidNext meetup. I slept in that morning so basically an assortment of ‘stuff’ was thrown together in order to allow me to do my makeup on my way to Dublin. The bag itself is a Body Shop one that I bought many many moons ago when I had a loyalty card for there. It’s just a nice size as it holds a lot but is compact enough that if needed I can carry it in my (rather large) handbag!
11 lip products including: W7 lipgloss, Urban Decay lip crayon, Rimmel Apocalips, Benefit Her Glossiness (discontinued), Clinique double-ended lipgloss, DuWop Venom Lip primer, Lipcote, ARTDECO Dita Von Teese lipstick, lipliners from No7, Rimmel and MAC.
Brushes from Catrice, Ruby & Millie, Real Techniques, Sigma, Royal & Langnickel and No7.
Face products: pot of blended foundation (Esteé Lauder and Arabesque), palette with bronzer. blusher and highlighter from Urban Decay, translucent pressed powder from Soap & Glory and primer from Rimmel.
Eye products: Urban Decay Eye Primer in Eden, Inglot 10 pan palette (matte), HD Brows palette in Foxy, Benefit They’re Real mascara, Esteé Lauder Sumptuous mascara, Inglot kohl eyeliner pencil, gel eyeliners from Catrice, Avon and Inglot and Duraline from Inglot.
I have to say that I am amazed at how much that bag manages to hold. Most of what I have in here is completely unnecessary and I do realise that but I am useless at packing in a hurry (or otherwise) as I bring *everything* – just in case!!
What do you have in your makeup bag? Do you try to prepare for all eventualities like I do or have you a more minimalist approach? If you have done this most in blog or vlog form please link me up!
