What's In My Makeup Bag?

Hey everyone! How're you?
I think this month must be the busiest month I ever had; I've been to around 5 dinners in the past two weeks plus all of the other things I had to do... I'm feeling a bit worn out! 

So today I'm being super lazy and I'm showing you what's in my makeup bag! This is my "main" bag that I always carry around with me where I just keep my essentials, and I have another bigger one which contains the rest of my makeup.

The Base
To start off I apply some foundation & concealer before patting it down with some compact powder. I usually use MAC foundation but I ran out so I chose Bourjois as an alternative. It smells so good and it's pretty thin, making it easier to spread around.
Then it's time to do the contouring; I love the Sleek Contour Palette, and for my nose I use a really light concealer stick and white eyeshadow. 


I was going to put the blushers in the "base" section but couldn't fit everything into one photo, so this is going to be my base part 2. I love BeautyUK blushers (you can tell which is my favourite shade) but I really liked the pigment in the MUA one. Unfortunately I chucked it away right after this photo as it exploded in my makeup bag. Not cool.

Eye Makeup
Time for the eyes! I start off by doing my brows before moving onto putting some mascara on. I tend to get quite messy with mascara because of my short lashes, so I cover it up with eyeshadow tehehe. I normally have two eyeshadow palettes in my bag, but when I'm travelling I just take the MUA one because the colour shows up so much better against my skin. I do have a Naked eyeshadow palette for Christmas that I haven't opened yet... I should probably start using that.
I then put on some gel liner~ I swear by Maybelline, it is the best liner I've ever tried. I used to wear liquid liner but it looked really messy and I find it so much easier using a brush (which I forgot to take a photo of here, d'oh!). I use pencil liner for the waterline. 

I keep all of my most-used lashes in this cute container that I got from Kawaii Gyaru Shop. It's so handy! It's really small too so I always carry it in my hand bag when I wear my lashes, just in case. I also have two separate lash glues for upper and lower.

Last, but not least, the lips! If I'm wearing pink lippy I tend to put on a nude colour just beforehand because I've got really dark lips. For reds I go by Kate by Rimmel - it's amazing! Would definitely suggest it!

And I guess that's it! It's been a while since I've done one of these posts but it looks like I still stuck by the same brands as I did ages ago... Oh wells! I know that I haven't really included lashes (as all of my most-used ones are in the little case) so maybe I could do a post on all of the lashes I own? Hmm.

Anyways! Until next Sunday~
