I’m always thinking about beauty ideas for blog posts, and I do still enjoy writing and reading them. Today I thought I’d share what’s in my current makeup bag (I could call this the Winter edition but lets be honest, it doesn’t change that much all too often.)

I use The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA as a primer, it leaves my skin feeling super smooth and quite tacky, ready to apply a base.

The base product I’ve been using at the moment is Bourjois Healthy Mix, and I love this foundation because it’s very light but still has really good coverage that gives me a bit of confidence.

I’ve been using my Sleek Contour palette, and using the ‘contour’ shade as a bronzer, which works super well. I love this little palette and its lasted me so long. It’s very affordable too so it gets a major thumbs up from me. Then I go in with my Glossier Haloscope in Moonstone which I apply with my fingers, this stuff is dreamy. It just gives you a lit from within glow.

For eyeshadow I am obsessed with my Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. I didn’t like my Naked 3, but this palette is everything to me right now. The copper colours really suit my blue eyes and make them pop. There’s so many beautiful shades in this too, and it’s very pigmented. I’m always using my favourite ever mascara too, the Maybelline Push Up Angel.

On my lips I’m using the Glossier balm dot com in Birthday Cake, which yep, you guessed it, it’s the dream. I feel like I need 50 back-ups incase I suddenly run out. I’ve started popping the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk over the top to line my lips and it’s becoming the perfect combo.

Have you tried any of these products?

  • Ooh I love seeing inside other people’s make up bags. I bought one of the Naked palettes for my wedding this year and I love it. I can’t remember which one it is, I think the original?
