Whats in my makeup bag #1 - spring 2014


At last spring has finally arrived and landed in my makeup bag!  One of the major trends for this season is mininmal makeup so for the past week or so I have been keeping my makeup very simple and fresh- no heavy eyes or dark lips. So now lets take a peek...

Makeup bag from asos

For face, I have finally tried the Maybelline dream pure BB cream  (a bit late on this one – I know!), which has a great overall coverage. On a good skin day I don’t even use concealer because the pigmentation of the BB cream is just enough to cover any spots, but If I am having an extremely bad skin day I will use my collection lasting perfection concealer to cover any nasty spots! To set all of my makeup in place I like to use rimmel stay matte powder- this honestly is the best invention ever- it keeps all of my makeup in place throughout the whole day and it works particularly well for me as I have oily skin so it minimises shine!

On my cheeks I have currently been reaching for sleek icing sugar blush by their new blush by 3 palette- I did a review on this palette so please do check it out!

MUA dusk till dawn palette

On my eyes, the perfect shade to get a completely natural and neutral look is benefit paint pot in samba dy loves me. I also like to use MUA dusk till dawn palette as it has some gorgeous neutral tones. 

Maybelline mega plush mascara

 On my lashes I am currently loving Maybelline mega plush volume mascara- this adds great length to my lashes at the same time as volumizing intensively. This mascara also feels incredibly lightweight which is an extra bonus!

current eye favourites!

I like to vary the mascara I use quite frequently and if i'm not using mega plush then it has to be benefit they're real. Despite the fact that I had heard so many great reviews I never came round to buying it, but luckily for me I received it as a Christmas present and ever since then I have never found a better mascara! As for liner, im not the biggest fan of a big cat eye however I sometimes like to add a little tight line to my upper lash line- Bourjois liner feutre is perfect for this!
mac chatterbox

Finally, my lip choice has to be mac chatterbox. This is the perfect spring/summer colour- a vibrant petal pink with a hint of shimmer!

So that's it for now!
I really hope you enjoyed, please comment any ideas you would like to see in further blogposts!
