What's in my Make-Up Bag #1

I don't think I have ever done a 'What's in my...' post before - I remember trying to film a video for a What's in My Handbag video but the cameras all exploded. That's an exaggeration of course, but they might as well had. At the time we didn't have the GH1 beast of a camera. But I digress. 

I'm currently using an aqua blue transparent-ish bag that I received as a 'gift with purchase' from No7 - I like that I can see what's in there plus I love the colour blue - nothing really special but all it does is sit on my dressing table or get thrown in my bag. 

Brushes, of course are stored separately when I'm travelling with them - I just use the case that they came in as it does the job perfectly well.  I do want to mention my favourites though so from left to right; the deluxe crease brush (I use this for concealer,) the stippling brush (cream blush gets blended in perfectly with this,) the detailer brush (perfect for tidying up with cream eyeshadows,) and finally the expert face brush - obviously all from Real Techniques. I also have a cheap spoolie from eyes lips and face. You can buy the Real Techniques brushes here and the spoolie here.

For face products in the bag; Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer (it's good, but best used in winter I feel,) the Dr.Jart+ Waterfuse BB Cream, Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush (in Soft Murano,) and the Bourjois Bronzing Primer. 

For concealers - the illuminating touch concealer from Collection and also from the same brand, the bloggers favourite - the lasting perfection concealer - I only use this on blemishes because it cakes like hell under my eyes now. 

Eye products are always on the switch up but for the moment it goes a little like this; No7 smoothing eye base, Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze and Pink Gold, Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Bronze and the white kohl is from Rimmel too. If I'm feeling a little fancy then the Eyeko eyeliner gets swished on the top lid. 

Brows get tidied up with a clear mascara or brow gel - I'm just using the Collection 'colour lash' in clear at the moment. It's not the best but it does a good job. 

For lashes I'm trying to use up a sample size of They're Real by Benefit and also my L'Oreal Telescopic False Lash - the Telescopic line is my favourite of all the mascaras. Love them.

Last but not least; for lips it can depend on my mood or what's closest to hand. Currently I'm having an orange affair so it has to be the Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Fruiti

So, what's in your make up bag?
