What's In My Makeup Bag?

I'm obsessed with makeup, however I tend to go for the more affordable products (unless, I decide to treat myself). Firstly, because I'm broke and secondly, a lot of drugstore products are so damn good! Most of the products in my makeup bag are really affordable and my go-to items. So, without further ado here's what is in my makeup bag...

L'Oreal True Match Foundation - I've been using this foundation for ages and I love it! I use the shade 'Rose Ivory' and it's perfect for my pale skin. You can create a more sheer finish or build it up to give a fuller coverage. It's super blendable and gives a a lovely finish!

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - This is definitely one of the most popular drugstore concealers and it's no surprise! I use this as an under eye concealer as well as covering any blemishes or redness. It covers everything so well and doesn't crease. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - I use to swear by this stuff but stopped using it - who knows why?!! I recently repurchased it in 'Transparent' and it does the job perfectly. It sets your makeup and gives you a more matte finish. 

Bourjois Bronzing Powder - I find myself coming back to this bronzer again and again. I can use it with a very light hand to give the slightest bronze and make my face look less one dimensional and more alive. Or, I can use more to create a more contoured look. 

Maybelline Blush - I use the shade 'Pink Amber' and this just gives my cheeks a subtle rosy tint. They say your blusher should be the same shade as your cheeks would naturally blush, so this is great for getting that natural rosiness! 

Soap & Glory Brow Archery - The first time I used this, I just knew it was the one. It has a seriously fine pencil, perfect for filling in any sparse areas and giving your brows a little more shape. For those people who like a finer brow this what you need! It also has a spooly brush on the other end which is super handy.

Makeup Obsession Eyeshadow - These are shadows are affordable and great quality. What I love is the range of shades and right now I've been enjoying the shade 'Tawny'. This is a gorgeous shimmery gold. It's buttery, applies easily and is very blendable. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational - I do switch between mascaras quite often but this is the one I've been loving right now. It does exactly a good mascara should do - lengthen, thicken and volumize! 

Carmex Lip Balm - This is pretty boring one but it's completely an essential, especially in Winter when lips get dry and cracked. I love the burny sensation that this gives! 

MAC Viva Glam II - This is a beautiful nude/mauve shade in a satin finish so, it's really buttery and not drying on the lips. It lasts all day and everyone loves a good MAC lipstick - am I right?!
