What's in my make-up bag?

Good afternoon poppets,
how are you all dealing with this monsoon June?!
I donned the hunter wellies on my way to the office this morning, and snuggled up at my desk with a hot water bottle and a cup of tea. Wouldn't it be dreadful to live in a country where they didn't drink tea??

I know I said I would be a little more diverse on my blog (I promise I will), but I'm really enjoying make-up again at the moment.

I'm thinking of doing a make-up artist course, even though they are ridiculously expensive. If anyone could recommend any around central London, that would be great!

Anyway, let's get down to it.
I love peeking into other peoples' make-up bags, who can resist a good nosey, eh?! So...this is the contents of my every-day make-up bag... 

I'll walk you through it...

Clinique Dramatically different moisturizing lotion
No.7 Concealer- shade 03 fair (I always like to have my concealer in a lighter shade than my foundations)

Chanel Foundations-
My crazy love obsession with Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation is still going strong. We are coming up to our 3 year anniversary... or so.
Chanel Vitalumiere (shade 20 Beige), which I Mix with Vitalumiere Lumiere (shade 30 Cendre Shell) £35 for 30mls, depending on how tanned I am.
 Mac Finishing Mist
Topshop Foundation Brush

Mac Sheer tone Shimmer Blush- Trace Gold
Illamsqua Cream Blush- Sob (I've hit the pan on this one, it's lasted over a year and I still absolutely love it)
MAC 109 Contor Brush
Mac Mascara- Studio Fix Boldblack Lash
Mac eyeliner- Smoulder
 Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil- Shade 001 dark brown.

Carmex Classic Lipbalm (I use this as as a base for lipsticks)
MAC Satin Lipstick- Myth
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick

Make up bag- Muji
Boots Eyelash curlers
Tweezer- Octopus
Bobby pins
 Cath Kidston mirror

Phew! It does seem like a heck of a lot when I list it.
This is my every-day natural make up look (excuse the hair, rain = bad hair day)...

What do you carry around in your make-up bag? is it as much as me?!


  1. Oh my word your make up bag is so tidy and pretty! Honestly mine is so thrown together, 101 different things lol. Loving the chanel and the illamasqua totally ace products!!
