For today’s post I thought I would show you what’s in my make up bag.
When it comes to make up unless I’m going out out I tend to keep my make up very natural and simple, I’m not one for all of this contour and stuff it just takes up so much time. Lets put it this way I would rather spend that extra 30 minutes in bed than doing my make up.
However on days when I want to actually look human then these are the things I use, again I’m very simple when it comes to make up ( I need to venture out more)
First things first I tend to start with a colour corrector under my eyes cause I have terrible dark circles and this helps to cover them up, I use the one for light to medium skin tones. I then move onto my foundation, now the Rimmel wake me up foundation is my go to and I’ve used it for a few years now (again I need to venture out more) I’ve only just recently changed the shade I use, I started with soft beige and I’ve changed to light porcelain, I have very fair skin and I always used to think the soft beige was too dark for me but now I think I may have just found the perfect shade for my skin.
Moving on to eyes now and I must be honest and say I play it very safe when it comes to eye shadow because I’m not that great at doing all this fancy stuff. As you can probably tell from the picture I tend to stick to 2 or 3 main colours in the naked palette and that’s purely because 1 I love the colours and 2 because the browns complement my blue eyes, when it comes to the MUA palette you’ll be happy to know I’ve ventured out with this palette and I usually tend to go for the peachy and light pink colours, I’ve even used the bright pink at the bottom before which I actually loved the look of. The pigments in both of these palettes are amazing and I’ve gotta say they’re my go to pallets to use.
I told you my make up was very simple, final 3 things I apply are mascara, bronzer & highlighter, bronzer and highlighter are new things that’s been added into my make up routine and now I wonder why I never used to apply them before.
I finish my look with a nude lipstick or I sometimes go bold with a red lip, apologies but I couldn’t find any of my lipsticks anywhere to insert a picture, I tend to put them in bags and then never see them again. I did however get a pack of mini liquid matte lipsticks today from primark & I’m planning a primark haul for a blog post so I shall show you them in that.
So there we have it guys, that’s what’s in my make up bag, like I said at the start I’m very simple when it comes to make up, I think it’s because I’m not very good at it so I just like sticking to what I know best.
Hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll be back with a new one on Sunday, have a great weekend.
