What's in my make-up bag, everyday essentials



Yesterday I went and topped up on a few of the make-up staples that I buy again and again, bronzer eye liner and foundation always seems to run out at the same time for me! So I thought to do a post on what I normally have in my make-up bag, just the essentials that I'd wear on a regular day. Going out make-up  would feature a lot more sparkly eye shadow and fake lashes! The perfume I use is a 'Gina' by Benefit and it is possibly the most amazing thing you will ever smell in your life. Ok maybe a slight over reaction but I've been getting this for years and I'm just putting it out there! Everything else in listed below.




To be honest I couldn't tell you where my moisturiser is from because my mam just picked it up for me one day but do make sure you always wear face moisturiser to prevent your foundation from cracking. Cheap and cheerful does fine! Benefit's dr.feelgood is great if your having a day where you don't feel like wearing heavy make-up, I don't really use it that often but its handy to have! Rimmel primer is fantastic, keeps your make-up on for longer and creates a matte finish before you apply your foundation. I use Bourjois Healthy mix foundation. I've been using this for ages now and absolutely swear by it! I've tried mac and although there's great coverage its very thick, I might try it again some time but I really love this foundation so I'll be sticking to it . It's only €14.50 and smells amazing. I use Natural collection powder which is brilliant and seriously cheap as is Miss sporty bronzer and Catrice blusher all available from boots.








I have a lot of eye shadows, but the pallet that I use every day is the original Naked Pallet. Its so handy for an everyday look because its natural and you can build up the colour to make it more dramatic if needs be. Its so easy to blend and is just altogether amazing! The Naked 2 and 3 are on my future list but if you don't have at least one of these you need to go and get one! The matt colours are also great for filling in your eyebrows. For eyeliner I use rimmel glam eyes, eyeliner flicks are something I need in a everyday look! This is the best liquid liner I've tried is pretty affordable too.They're real Benefit mascara is unbelievable! Its a bit pricey but the tube lasts for ages and its completely worth it. One of my best buys .






Ok I know this seems like a lot for an everyday look but generally this is the minimum I'd have in my bag as regards lip products! What a lot of people don't know is that like the make-up on your face, your lipstick will crack if you don't moisturise your lips! Not the same type but always put lip balm of some sort on first! Lipstick without liner can be tricky and tends to run so I'd always recommend a liner Catrice do very affordable ones! I've two dark lipsticks here that I would wear as an everyday look but it depends on the situation because they are very bold. Nude lips are always a safe bet and soap and glory sexy mother pucker is great for something natural. Also if you have very dramatic eye make-up you don't want to go overboard on lips! It tends to look a bit (clowney) 

As always thanks for reading, feel free to comment your best beauty buy or a staple in you make-up bag! Until next week,
