Yay! My laptop is fixed which means I am back on the blogging scene finally. Over the bank holiday weekend I visited my boyfriend and whilst I was packing I thought it would be a good idea to do my first little Whats In My Bag post.
Foundation: Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc.
I actually am having a bit of a love hate relationship with this at the moment. I find it has a good lasting power but its starting to look 'cakey' on my skin, especially my forehead and I feel the colour is making me look so washed out. I think I'll re-go to SpaceNK to see what a different lady would match me up with.
Concealer: Collection in Light 2.
I have learnt a little goes a long way with this and it easily works for both my blemishes and under eye.
Powder: Vichy Dermablend Translucent Powder
I for one am not a powder person, my skin is dry enough and I feel that my face looks quite flat with it on. I do use some just under my eyes though to keep the concealer for budging!
Contour/Blush/Highlight: Nars Crimes of Passion palette and High Beam
This has both Laguna and Deep Throat which is so handy as it saves me from taking both separately! I then top with High Beam for a quick glow.
Brows: Brow Zing and Gimme Brow.
God knows what I used before I had these two ha. I am starting to love the wax in the Brow Zing more than the powder at the moment but it just so small and perfect to carry around. In addition I took my Gimme Brow (thank god because I accidentally forgot my spollie) to neaten them that little bit more.
Mascara: Extreme Dimension Mac
Hm, I received Mac's Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash mascara so thought I would take it along to test a little bit more. It's not the best but it comes off easily unlike my Benefit They're Real.
Eye Shadow: Nars Crimes of Passion palette
This has 3 great shades that work wonders together. I use the Jezebel (cream shade) all over then Naiade (brown) in the crease.
Perfume: Laugh with me Lee Lee by Benefit
Sometimes I really dislike taking my expensive perfumes away so usually end up taking this. It is the only scent I like from their range and seems to last for ages on my clothes!
Lipstick: L'Oreal Color Riche Tender Rose
I loveee this lipstick. I take it everywhere and its so easily to apply on the go! Its a very girly pink for sure but it just adds something to my look and makes me feel confident when I wear it. Well done L'Oreal!!
P.s I use a Ted Baker makeup bag which seems to fit everything I need perfectly, including all my brushes
