Inside my every day makeup bag

I have a huge makeup collection – dozens of lipsticks, foundations for when I’m tan or pale, contour kits and plenty of eye shadow pallets. Some of them I use quite often, some barely get a look in, but there are a select few that make it into my every day make up routine without fail and those are the ones I’ll be sharing with you today.


Too Faced Hangover X primer. This is the latest addition to my makeup bag, as you’ll know from my Pay day haul – part one post, and I love it. It smells delicious, makes my skin incredibly soft and my makeup stay put for hours.

Nars Sheer Glow foundation in shade 2. Like I said, I have foundations for when I’m tanned, but most of the time I am so pale people confuse me for a ghost. I’ve been using this foundation for years and whilst I do sometimes try something different, I always come back to it. It’s light weight but buildable and gives me really good cover whilst giving my skin a nice glow to it.

Benefit ‘Boi-Ing’ Brightening concealer. Again, this is another classic. It used to be called Erase Paste but the whole range of Benefit concealers has undergone a re-brand which I love. The packaging is so cute! This concealer is really great for my dark circles, especially when I’ve had very little sleep (thanks insomnia!). It’s lightweight and buildable and most importantly, doesn’t crease!

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Bronze and Glow. Another fairly recent addition to my make up bag, which I am so happy about. I’ve wanted this duel bronze and highlight pallet for so long and after two months of using it, I’m still in love. It’s a really great subtle yet effective bronzer, whilst the highlighter is just divine!

Nars Orgasm blusher. Are you even a beauty junkie if you don’t own this blusher?! Such a lovely colour and really works well with the Hollywood Bronze and Glow. It’s very pigmented so a little goes a long way and it blends out like a dream.

Two Faced Better Than Sex mascara. A cult worthy mascara for a reason, this is very buildable and long lasting and doesn’t flake off. I also just love the name!

Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift pencil. I got this the same time as the contour pallet and whilst it’s not as good as ones I’ve previously used from Benefit (sorry Charlotte!), I like that it also comes with a golden eyebrow highlighter.


These are my every day makeup products, but what are yours? Let me know in the comments below! I’m always after new recommendations.
