If you have read my Make Up Collection/Storage post you will know that I have a silly amount of make up. More recently I have been keeping my most used make up in a make up bag so it's easy to find what I need when I'm on 5am starts or just in a hurry. I don't always like doing this because it means I'm using the same things all the time and some things get forgotten in a drawer, but recently it's just been more practical for me.
Anyway I thought I would share what is currently in my make up bag.
I'm using the same one that was in my Make Up Collection/Storage post, my Ted Baker one.
My brushes (I promise I'm going to clean them once I'm finished this post!)
Most of them are Real Techniques. My powder brush is Vintage Cosmetics Company. There's also a Barry M angled brush and a couple of random eyeshadow brushes and tweezers.
I'm not entirely sure why I have two very similar eyeshadow palettes in here but I do! The one on the right is the MUA Undressed palette and the middle one is the Sleek Au Naturel palette. I also have my Nars Guy Bourdin One Night Stand palette.
Lots of primers! I'm not gonna describe them all because you can see what they are! The one on the far right though is a roll on eye gel.
And everything else! Again I'm not going to describe everything but I will mention a few favourites. The Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation has to be one of my favourites but I can only use it when my skins not too oily, which luckily it's not just now. The classic Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, which in my opinion is the best. Rimmel Kohl Eyeliner, which I think was one of the first make up products I ever bought.
That's all I need day to day. I don't carry the bag around with me but I quite often grab it when I'm in a rush so I can get where I'm going and do my make up once I'm there! Maybe I need to start going through my make up drawers and grabbing some things I want to try and popping them in my make up bag.
What essentials do you have in your make up bag? Do you use the same make up every day?
