What's in my makeup bag?



I LOVE makeup. God, this seems like I use a lot when I write it down, but it doesn't take me 10 minutes to put it on my face I promise! I've added links below each product and in the photo of the product I use, I've also photographed the brush that I would put the product on with.

Disclaimer - I am not fancy, I do not buy expensive products unless I believe they are going to make me look like a model. So most of these items you can find it your high-street shops or a department store.

SKIN CARE
I mean, I wash my face that's about it? I use Biore once a week
Shop here
and I use Witch exfoliating scrub in the shower every evening.


BASE
Okay maybe I need a fancy department store, I use Clinique  "Dramatically different moisturizer"
Shop here


FOUNDATION
My daily go to foundation is Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in shade "Light Beige"
Shop here
If I need extra coverage or if I'm going shopping and want to have a more intense look, Estee Lauder, all day! I mix the shades "Cool Vanilla" and "Tawny" 
Shop here



CONCEALER
For under my eyes and on my chin, I use Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in shade "C4". I blend this in with a damp beauty blender
Shop here
I also use a colour corrector if I have any blemishes. The green stick from Sephora, but there are always lots of similar ones in Superdrug/Boots



CONTOUR
Depending on how i'm feeling i'll either use a powder contour or a cream contour.
For a cream contour (easier to blend!) I use "NYX professional makeup highlight and contour wonder stick". I also use a beauty blender to blend this product in well "dab" it in!
Shop here
But for a powder contour I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour pallet in "Light to Medium", as I also use other shades in the pallet for a perfect bronzer 
Shop here


POWDER
Since I first started using powder, I've always had the same one, I swear by it. But many say it smells like grannys... maybe I'm used to the smell?! Max Factor Creme Puff Powder in "Medium Beige"
Shop here



BRONZER
I only use bronzer, I don't use blusher, I do have Nars "Super Orgasm" or whatever it's called in case I do want to ever have a blusher, but no. So like I said earlier, I use the darker shade from my ABH contour pallet, but a cheap one I use for an extra glow and sparkle is "Makeup Revolution Baked Bronzer"
Shop here



HIGHLIGHT
For THE best glow, I use the highlight version of the bronzer I use, I get so many compliments on this highlighter, so that's fab for it only being a few quid!
Shop here
Buuuuut, if I want something subtle I use the urban decay highlight. 
Shop here


EYES
So, I get my lashes done every other month (individual extensions) I don't tend to wear mascara, but I've got a Loreal one kicking about, that I use should I need too.
Shop here
I only use one eyeshadow, it's SIN by Urban Decay, it's in the Naked palette, I can't remember what number that is though! But it's such a gorgeous sparkly shade, my favourite!
Shop here
I don't wear eyeliner, I do use a white liner though for my water line, it makes your eyes "pop" aka makes you look awake
Shop here


BROWS
I've always used ABH dip brow on my brows, nothing else looks right or keeps my brows neat and tidy. I wax my brows every two weeks and I tint them myself. It's like a creamy/clay type of product. The dip brow pomade shade I use is "Soft Brown" A great tip, is to wet the brush a little bit before dipping it in the pomade.
Shop here
I then put a brow gel on them to make sure they stay in place, I mean these brows don't move once I'm done with them!
Shop here



LIPS
For every day lips, I usually use the pink vaseline, glam!
Shop here
But if I want to feel abit more female, I am a MAC lipstick girl through and through! My go to colour is "Kinda Sexy" I don't really tend to line my lips for a daily look, but see me on a weekend and you'd think I've had fillers!
Shop here


Love, Rey x
