Everyday Make up Bag! ♥

I'm not going to lie - i have a ridiculous amount of make up for someone with only one face to put it on. I love trying new products and falling in love with some of them and inevitably, i end up reaching for the same ones time and time again. When it comes to my everyday make up bag, i have a real mix of brands. I have enough to do my full face and do a couple of different looks and it's what i use Monday to Friday when I'm getting ready for work. 

For my 'base' make up, i have a primer, concealer and foundation. The primer i currently have in my make up bag is the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer. I find this does help my make up stay looking fresh for longer and doesn't feel heavy on my face. My current go-to concealer is the Natural Collection Cover Up Stick in Fair* which i use on blemishes and under eyes to save time. It does a really good job covering up blemishes as the formula is quite thick but sometimes it's not enough to cover my dark circles. I'm also currently loving the Revlon ColorStay Foundation in Buff which is why it's currently in my make up bag. this gives me the right medium coverage but can be built up if I'm having a bad skin day. This lasts from when i put my make up on in the morning (7:30am) all the way until i get back from the gym at 8pm. 

I only keep one palette in my make up bag, though i do swap this out often, and currently this is the MUA Heaven and Earth Palette which everyone raves about. 12 Neutral shades with different finishes - i feel like i can get a variety of looks out of this with next to no effort.   For mascara, i have the Revlon Lash Potion which is great for everyday - lengthening and volumising but not 'too much'. I always have two eyeliners in here - my L'Oreal BlockBuster Eyeliner which is great for creating a cat flick and for use on the upper lash line. I also have the Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeliner in Nude to use on my lower lash line to make me look a little more awake!

For my cheeks, i have the Sleek face Form Palette in Light to use for blush, contour and highlight. The colours work really well together and the big mirror is a massive plus too. The colours last well throughout the day too so no need for touching up either!  For my brows, i have my trusty Make Up Revolution Focus & Fix Brows which is great for on the go to fill in and define my brows. 

I always pick a new lipstick anyway so that changes so often!
