Hello my lovelies, I wanted to share with you what is in my make up bag. These are my essential products that I use on a day to day basis, these products are the same products that I use every day and never change.
I use these 2 products at separate times throughout my foundation routine. I use the B6 Vitamin-infused complexion prep spray as my 1st step, this helps to reduce redness, minimise pores and absorbs excess oil on the skin – basically prepping the skin ready for your routine. The de-slick make up setting spray is a setting spray specifically to help with oil control, I actually spray this product onto my foundation brush before applying my foundation, that way the setting spray is mixed in lightly with the foundation and in my opinion works better as a setting spray.
This Urban Decay Naked Skin beauty balm is what I use as my primer. It helps to blur out imperfections, it’s oil free and primes the skin ready for foundation. Before I use this, I do use my EOS lip balm, which I haven’t taken a photo of as I already have written a blog on it.
Next items I use are my Urban Decay naked skin foundation and I use it with the Urban Decay Optical Blurring brush. This brush is specifically best used with this foundation, both of which I am in absolute love with. I have already done a review on both of these so I won’t go in to detail, but one thing I will say is that a setting powder is not required with this foundation which is why you won’t see a setting powder in this post.
Above is the 2 next things that I use, I use the Bare Minerals bronzer in the shade ‘The Skinny Dip’ (left) to contour my face, this is the perfect shade bronzer for my skin and blends in perfectly! I then use the Mosaic Bronze Glow in the shade ‘Sunkissed’ on the top of the cheek bones to give my skin that extra little bit of glow/shimmer. The brush I use with these is the Blush/Contour brush by B.
This is the mascara I am currently using, this is not normally the mascara I would purchase, however I never stick to one mascara. This is the first one of this brand I’ve tried and I was pleasantly surprised with it being such a cheap mascara. It isn’t clumpy and it also dries quick which in my eyes is a good thing. The eyelash curler above is by Tweezerman, this is really good at curling the lashes which I use every day before using the mascara as you’d probably guess.
Lastly, this is the Loreal Le blush in the shade ‘True Rose’. I have used this blush for almost a year and still haven’t hit base. It’s the perfect blush for me as like the bronzer suits my complexion and blends in perfectly. The brush I use with this is the Real Techniques contour brush.
All of these products like I said I use every single day, the only product that differs is my choice of lip gloss/lipstick. Therefore I have left out the lipsticks all together. I quite often go for a neutral look so eye shadows are very rarely a part of my collection.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, what’s in your make up bag? Do any of you use the same products as me? Let me know 🙂 x
