Look at all that clutter!! Would you believe these are just the products I use on a every day basis… I’m going to show you what’s in my makeup bag, a quick review and give you the prices of each product to sum up how much is it would cost altogether! OH DEAR 😬
Firstly the makeup bag is from Ted Baker and cost me £35 but is a perfect size and is sturdy enough for all the places I lunge it around with me!
This is my must have primer!! I have quite noticeably open pores but this primer really does help reduce them. It’s the Benefit Pore Fessional primer. I got the large at 44ml, costing £34.50 however the slightly smaller one is £24.50. It’s smooth and glides on to your skin, great for when you want to apply foundation.
I have only recently just started wearing this as I currently have a tan…so my good Ol drugstore L’OReal True Match doesn’t suit me at the moment. This MAC Studio Fix foundation is great though! It’s good coverage, long lasting and glides on to the skin. It’s also not too drying for my skin. (Which is GREAAAAT) costing £21.00 it’s actually reasonably cheap for one of the most talked about makeup products. I also use the MAC Pro long wear concealer which is really great coverage I have to say!!! And does exactly what it says, it’s long lasting ladies! Just what we like to hear! Just be sure you really blend other wise it may start to crease under the eyes. 😞 costing at £17.00
For liquid highlight I use the Estee Lauder Double Wear BB highlighter. I use this in a triangle shape under my eyes, along the centre of my nose, forehead, chin and Cupid’s bow! (So yeH, nearly everywhere) Gives a radiant glow and I love it! Costing £26.50.
For contouring I use the Smashbox contour palette it’s a powder contour palette with two different darker shades which are great and a soft highlighter. Costing £35.00.
For my eyebrows (something I can’t leave the house without doing!) is my favourite brow product yet! It’s the Illamasqua Brow gel in ‘Awe’ and I use the brush next to it for perfect application 😻 it’s better to use a slightly angled brush for when doing your brows, because of the arch in your brow. Costing £18.00.
For bronzer and blusher I use my favourite bronzer to date yet, Benefit Hoola Bronzer. I loooveee it because it’s not too orange and not too muddy, perfect combo right?!!! Costing £20.00 This soft pink blusher is the Bodyshop light pink blusher that gives a natural and gorgeous colour to your cheeks. Costing only £7.00.
I recently stopped wearing my Benefit They’re Real mascara to try something a little less pricey and these black and brown mascara a are actually great!! No clumps, good volume and crest length…why was I spending so much before?! I personally prefer the brown one atm because it creates a more natural finish to my fair skin and light hair. No7 Lash impact mascara costing just £9.00.
Everyday lipsticks consist of L’Oreal Nude by JLO costing £6.99 the MAC Please me lipstick and the MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick both for £15.50 as you can tell I love nude shades on an everyday look.
For a gorgeous golden highlight a long my cheek bone is use the MAC Soft and Gentle highlighter powder. Costing £23.00
Finally for eyeliner I just use the 2True black liner for just £2.00! People always comment how well I do my eye liner and it’s because of this product here, it’s BLACK long lasting and is easy to apply. Cheapest and most reliable product!!
OH MY GOD just my every day makeup bag costs me a total of
I think the addiction needs to stop!!! Who am I kidding, no way. I’m a makeup artist and it’s been a collection going on for a long time. (In just making excuses, I know) 😞 OH WELL. I love all the products and I would buy most of them again so…💄😬
