WIMB: My Make Up Bag

As I have mentioned many times before on here, I LOVE looking in other peoples bags. I think most of us can agree that it's quite interesting to see what others deem necessary to lug around with them every day. 

Today I thought I would share what was in my make up bag (aside from tissues, cotton buds & pads) & show what my daily make up is. Looking at this now I realise that I don't actually wear a lot of make up. I'm a Pre-school teacher & start work at 7am & I walk half an hour to work everyday, so I prefer not to spend too long in the mirror at 6am haha. I feel like I go for a natural dewy make up look most of the time.

I love looking at other bloggers with their 3 drawers of Muji boxes crammed with 10 lipsticks & 100 eyeshadows & I truly am envious haha! But unfortunatly I am lazy & useless at applying my own make up so I just stick to my basics.

Bodyshop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet is my favourite moisturiser at present. This stuff is a godsend on the skin. I use this Bodyshop Facial Brush when ex-foliating/cleaning my face in the shower & once I'm out, just before bed, I smother my face in this sorbet. It gives a slightly tingling, cooling sensation effect & feels extremely refreshing. I also love the texture of this product, it glides on like a moisturiser but sits like a primer, I am in love.

As I mentioned above I go for a dewy look in my make up & so try to avoid powders. The Stila Cream Blush in Lilium is my go to as it's a silky pigment that I find sits on the skin beautifully & gives a natural looking pinch of pink. 

I fill in my eyebrows with Bobbi Browns Brow kit in Dark as I think my eye brows aren't as dark as my hair colour & like to fill them in a bit to keep them looking nice & natural but tame.

For my base I use Chanels Vitalumiere Aqua compact in Beige 40, I know that at £40 a go this is an expensive daily base but this was a valentines gift off Mat & I find it really suits my skin. I love the way in melts in & sits throughout the day. I do find I need to top up within the day but I love doing it so it's not a hassle haha.

Over the past 12 months I have become a bit of a Clinique Junkie. Although when I run out of a product I do like to change it to try new things, most of Clinique's products are at the top of the list to buy again. I bought the Even Better Under Eye Correcter after sampling a friends. As a victim of hay fever & being one of those people who get over emotional from anything, I found this product a must. A quick cooling, sweep under the eyes & moments later I feel as though they are "De-puffed" (Obviously not instantly, It's not magic!)

For my eyes I curl my lashes & then add a few licks of Clinique's Lash Thickening Mascara. I love the effect it gives my lashes, long, thick & natural looking. I don't know whether to jump on the bandwagon & purchase some Shu Umera curlers next time I'm in Space N.K, are they really worth the hype?

& last but not least, after I apply my moisturiser, I smooth into my nose area & cheeks, The Bodyshops Tea Tree Pore Minimiser Primer. I adore tea tree, I know most people hate it but this stuff is so cooling & freshening first thing in the morning. It's quite a new product for me so I am still testing the pore minimising haha.

So there we have it, my make up bag!

(Oh & for those interested, the bag is from Primark!)
