What's in my Everyday Make-up Bag


Recently i've been feeling so smitten with the products that i've been using every-day, that I kind of wanted to share them with you. For the first time I feel so happy with the products i've invested in and how they transform me from tired and dull looking to fresh faced beauty! Ha, that's what i'd like to think anyway. But I didn't want to whack out a make-up routine (i'm not ready for that yet). So instead I thought i'd share with you what's in my make-up bag.

Liz Earle Moisturiser

I love Liz Earle products, they're all natural and make my skin feel so nice, I always use the moisturiser first before putting any make-up on at all. But during the day it's actually a great hand moisturiser.

The Body Shop, All-in-one BB Cream

I like to carry this around with me all the time for touching up my make-up throughout the day. I don't like the feeling of putting fresh foundation on top of old foundation but I do find I need a little touch up around 2pm. This tinted BB cream fills in the gaps and is a great alternative to heavy foundation on warmer days.

Benefit Gimme Brow

For on the go I love having Gimme Brow in my make-up bag, armed with a clean spooly the tinted brow gel is perfect for keeping your eyebrows looks fierce all day.

Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

I am having very bipolar opinions about this liner, when I first got it I loved it, then I hated it for a while and now we're friends again. The nib is so pointy it's great for touching up your cat eyes as the day goes on however i'm struggling with morning application at the moment. I don't know whether it's me or the liner but Soap and Glory's Supercat Liner is also in my make-up bag.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

Got to have a powder in your bag. I have very mild dry skin, so my face fortunately doesn't get that oily or shiny. However a powder is great for setting your make-up and making sure it's going to stay there for as long as possible.

MAC Mineralize Blush

This is a great all rounder blush. Whether you put it on in the morning or not, it's a great top-up blush. It goes on sheer so when put on top of another blush it enhances it's colour but when put on bare cheeks it builds up so nicely.

These are the products I carry around with me day to day in my handbag in order to touch up my face as life takes it's punches and shares it's flowers. I hope you liked it.

Love always,
Melissa

  1. I definitely need to "stay matte" powder in my life. Where I live is very hot and humid so i'm always sweating..perhaps this would save my foundation melting off haha. x
