always made up



i have so much makeup it's a bit ridiculous. this is my 'every day' makeup bag (i have a few baskets of other things i don't use as much - coloured eyeshadows/msfs/pigments mainly) anyway it's cath kidston and i'm pretty sure it's meant to be a wash bag, but nevertheless. i'm tidying it out so i thought i may aswell show whats in it. it's overflowing at the moment so a lot of this stuff is going to be moved into a basket i think.



these are my 'every day' face things. obviously i don't use all of them at once but i change my routine constantly! today i wore mat lumiere with makeup forever matte powder and yesterday i wore estee lauder doublewear with a mac natural msf. i always use mac matte on my t-zone and sometimes benefit pore fessional when i can be bothered! always finish off with a squirt of fix plus too. i'm not even going to apologise for how dirty my makeup is, it's well used haha.


some msf's/beauty powder things from mac. i do actually love all of these and would wear them all on my face every day if i didn't look stupid (err.. not that i've tried that or anything.) these haven't photographed very well AT ALL so i may try again sometime. light flush is my absolute favourite right now.


other blusher things. nars orgasm is another favourite! mac/hello kitty tippy was my favourite for such a long time, but i've replaced it with flamingo by sleek as of late. both are lovely though.


eyeshadow. now, i really don't get on with eyeshadow. i can't use colour at all which means i have loads of eyeshadows i just DON'T USE. these are my neutrals that i mostly wear. i'm trying to branch out a little into pinks but... it's not going so well.


mascara - all time favourite is l'oreal telescopic. not to brag or anything but i get asked a lot if my eyelashes are real when i wear this! i usually thicken them up with a coat of smoky lash or the collection 2000 one which is a cheaper option. works just as well too. illamasqua's precision ink is the only liquid eyeliner i get on with (i usually use gel) it's absolutely FANTASTIC. and well worth the stupid price tag. it goes on effortlessly and i don't have to spend forever trying to make the lines even. it's true black and super glossy. love love love it. the pencil is mac spiked eyebrow pen, which i use if i can't be bothered to fill my brows in with eyeshadow!


lipstick. oh god. my weakness. these are just the ones i have in my makeup bag, i have them spread across handbags and all over my room. i'm terrible. i guess these ones were my favourites at some point! at the moment i love angel, girl about town, up the amp, hue and impassioned.


brushes! i don't use many really. they're all mac apart from the two on the end which are gosh. if i had to pick one it'd be the 187, definitely. i use it for pretty much everything!

whew, think i'll leave it there for now! what are your essentials in your makeup bag? :)

  2. My sister bought me the loveliest Cath Kidston make-up bag for Christmas, and since then, I've managed to filter my essentials to fit in the bag, and I'm totes getting rid of everything else, I also have such a crazy amount of make-up! May just have to try those mascaras that you mentioned lovely, I'm a sucker for buying mascaras! I heart your lipstick collection (:
