What’s In My Makeup Bag?

I am constantly changing up my makeup routine so I have yet to do a “makeup bag” post but lately I’ve really fallen in love with a few products that are now my everyday staples for a simple but fresh faced look. 

I am a tinted moisturiser girl at heart – I don’t like to feel anything on my skin – so my Laura Mercier is must. To add a bit of colour and radiance to skin I like to mix in a little bit of Revlon Skinlights in Bare Light with my base. For concealer I use the NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Porcelain. It is an amazing multipurpose product that works for under the eyes and to cover blemishes. Finally, to set my makeup I use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light. 

For eyes, I like to keep it simple on an everyday basis so the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette is perfect. Then for days that I literally running out the door, I like to sweep a bit of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze all over the lids. This cream shadow makes it look like you spent time doing your eyeshadow when it really took seconds. I make sure to always line my eyes with my Stila Smudgestick in damsel – a super dark brown – for just a bit of definition and top it off with my beloved Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. A face is never finished without the eyebrows so of course I use the amazing Benefit GimmeBrow

For the colourful bits – best bit really! – I have been loving the pigmentation and lasting power of the NYX Powder Blushes. The two shades I have been wearing the most are Angel and Dusty Rose. Then for lips, the Revlon Lacquer Balm in Demure and the Maybelline Colour Whisper in Lust for Blush have not left my handbag. 

Do you stick to certain products for a while? What are your current staples?
