What's in my make up bag?

As you all know, I love being nosey and seeing what's in other people's bags. I've already done two 'What's in my bag?' posts so I thought I'd mix it up a bit and do a 'What's in my make up bag?' post? This make up bag is what I carry around with me on a daily basis. It's got everything I need in it for a quick touch up or for those days when I wake up late and have to do my make up on the bus (this happens quite a lot, oops!) It's also got the essentials for turning my usual day time make up into something more suitable for a night out, just in case I make spontaneous plans!

Make up bag: Primark

I can't believe I manage to fit so much stuff in such a small bag!

Vivo Compact Powder in Soft Vanilla, 
Estee Lauder Double Wear sample in Shell,
 Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Shade 01,
Benefit High Beam sample,
Topshop Cream Blush in Flush,
Bourjois Illuminating Touch

MUA  Intense Colour Eyeliner in Snow White,
Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliner in Moray,
Inika Eyeliner in Coco,
No7 Beautiful Brows Pencil in Brown/Black,
Collection 2000 Gel Eyeliner in Black

MAC Chatterbox,
MAC Ravishing,
Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple,
MUA Shade 3,
Burberry Lip Cover in No4 Rosewood

Now I look at everything laid out, it seems like a lot to be carrying around with me! I do use a lot of them as part of my daily make up routine. I use the Vivo powder everyday to set my foundation and I always use the concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes I have. I prefer to have a sample of foundation rather than a big bottle.
 I find the white eyeliner really handy for those days when I look really tired as it helps to brighten your eyes when applied to the waterline. The Stila eyeliner looks great with my green eyes and as it's waterproof, it doesn't budge all day! The Collection 2000 gel eyeliner is really easy to apply with my Avon eyeliner brush and again, doesn't budge all day.
These five lipsticks are the ones I tend to use the most, so I like to have them to hand. When I'm at work I usually wear MUA's Shade 3 or Ravishing. When I had darker hair, I always used to wear the Burberry Lip Cover but I'm trying not to use it so much now as it's only a sample and it's running out fast!

What do you carry in your make up bag?


  1. Great post! I love knowing what other people carry around with them!! lol


  2. I love being nosy when it comes to other peoples bags too! You definitely fit a lot into a small bag! x

  3. I love looking into peoples makeup bags! I also love MACs Ravishing- such a pretty colour :) x

  4. your make-up bag is so pretty! primark do such nice ones, i may have to get myself one - and also a blush from topshop, i've heard such great things about them!x

  5. Ah I have the topshop blush but it's got majorly dirty, all my brushes have shedded into it and it now looks like a complete mess : / Shame though as it's a gorgeous colour!


  6. ooh Mac Chatterbox looks like a nice colour! I don't carry much make up around with me at all...just some blusher and a lipstick. I don't have a make up bag for them though so I often end up losing things as I swap handbags! Silly me!
