What’s In My Makeup Bag #2


This is going to be the second post for the What’s In My Makeup Bag series.


Urban Decay Naked 3 palette– I used to use this palette all the time! but then I guess I just tried different palettes and I have ended up not using it for a while. This week I gave it a go and I love it. The rose gold and mauve shades are perfect for everyday wear and create a beautiful soft smokey eye. I particularly like the shade TRICK just all over the lid.

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angle Mascara- I can’t get enough of this mascara! This is the same as last week because it has pretty much become my favourite mascara. It’s one of those mascaras that get better as they dry up a bit. Cause at first it has quite a wet formula but still works well, as it drys it becomes easier to work with and your lashes seem to have more definition.

Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil- My last post was a review on this brow pencil, it makes defining your eyebrows super easy no matter how sparse they are. I have used this every day and I’m definitely impressed by the staying power (even with my very oily skin).

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer- I’ve had a few breakouts this week and when this happens my weapon of choice for covering them up is the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. Using a pin point technique with a small lip brush, my blemishes become basically undetectable! I love this stuff and would definitely repurchase it as you can use it in so many different ways.

Collection Precision Contouring- This is the perfect contour shade and is under £5, a very creamy contour stick that is perfect for sculpting your cheekbones and slim enough to contour your nose. Really pigmented and easy to blend, the best cream contour I’ve found at the drugstore.

Marc Jacobs Spotlight Glow Stick- I like my highlight to look glossy, don’t get me wrong I love a metallic highlight too, but if I want to look naturally glowing a glossy, an editorial wet look highlight is the way to go. This highlight is just stunning!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in ABU DHABI- Liquid lipsticks always last a really long time but I do find them drying on my lips for every day. The Soft Matte Lip Creams are a good alternative to a liquid lipstick. You still get the matte finish but they are very comfortable to wear, smell delicious and don’t dry out your lips. Perfect for every day and the shade AUB DHABI is my favourite because it has just the right mix of brown and pink tones that for me is a great your lips but better shade.
