What's in my make-up bag?

Saturday, 25 June 2011

I'd though I'd share with you today what i carry in my beloved make-up bag!

I love these sort of posts; not only because I'm nosey but because i like to see what everyone else rates for everyday use and find me some new goodies!

I stay at the bf's from Friday evening until Sunday so my make-up bag is often bulging as i never know what i might need or where we may end up!

Here's what i currently have packed for this weekend:

Bronze make-up bag - Boots - £5

Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - Ivory (currently testing this out, not sure about it yet - its a little too sheer me thinks)
Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation - 021 Nude
ELF Make Up Mist & Set
ELF High Definition Powder
17 Shine Control Pressed Powder - Natural
MEMEME Blush Me! - Coral
ELF Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder - Sunkissed
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer - 2 Light

Eyelure Ready To Wear Pre-Glued Lashes - 070
17 Vintage Love Perfect Pastels Eyeshadow Palette
17 Va Va Voom Mascara - Black
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - Blackest Black
Opia Eyeshadow Quad
17 Eye Dazzle - Gold
17 Glitter Eyeshadow - Chalice
ELF Duo Eyeshadow Cream - Sugar Cookie
Barry M Kohl Eyeliner Pencil - Black
Maybelline Gel Eyeliner - Black
17 Eyeshadow - Ivory Coast

Schwarzkopf Got2Be Powderful Volumising Styling Powder
Hair clip
GHD Fine-tooth Comb (great for backcombing!)
Natural Collection eyeshadow (used to fill in eyebrows - so old the colour/name has worn off)
ELF Eyebrow Treat & Tame - Light
Blistex Lip Massage
MAC Viva Glam Gaga
Colgate toothpaste (cant use any other brand, yuk!)
Kirby grips


This is just the selection i carry around with me. Oh My! I also have a selection of lipsticks/glosses in my handbag too! LOL!

Writing it all down (and having to photograph it separately to get good shots!) it seems like quite an excessive list, but i obviously don't use all these products in one go! ... It gets me through the weekend plus nights out and gives me options!

I tag - everyone!

I want to nosey around your make-up bags now :)




  1. that's a lot of brushes lol :)
    check out my videos for what's in my purse, my perfume collection, etc.. :)


  2. I so love a nose round peoples' make up bags! This post reminds me, I MUST buy some ELF stuff soon!

  3. I love to see what other ppl carry in their makeup bags...

  4. I did almost the exact same post as this just the other day!!
    I stay at my bf's at the weekend too and was saying how much make up you have to have with you, just in case you "need it"!!
