WHAT'S INSIDE MY SPRING MAKE UP BAG?




Hello lovelies, I thought I would share with you all what I'm loving for a spring base currently, I did forget to picture the main product I am actually obsessed with through spring though and that is Mac's msf in soft and gentle! I literally never go out the house with this anymore it gives me such a gorgeous glow to my skin and I actually love it as an all over eye shade too and on my brow bone. I'll talk through a little what else is in my super pretty home bargains make up bag though.

The bases - When the weather is warmer I like a light feeling foundation/BB cream but I still like a good coverage, I get this with these products Maybelline Pure BB cream for combination oily skin is literally the best BB cream I have ever used, it is fantastic medium to full coverage and very buildable without being cakey and gives a gorgeous dewy finish to your face and lasts all day, perfect if you have an oily t-zone like myself and for luminosity but with a velvety finish I have been loving Max factors Luminizer foundation, I have it in the shade light ivory and it is a fantastic match on my skin, blends in very easily and lasts all day too, it has a gold shimmer running through which isn't blatantly obvious on the skin but does give it a bit of a glow. If you want even more luminosity and glow to your skin I couldn't recommend Mac Strobe cream enough to you, this is perfect if you have any dry areas also as it adds some hydration to the area whilst also giving you a gorgeous shine to your face, not an oily shine but a shine from within to really make your base look fresh and glowy for the day, perfect if your face is looking a bit dull and you didn't get your 8 hours prior. Concealer wise I like to really highlight under my eyes to hide my bags and brighten that area and the best product for that on me has to be the Nars Radiant creamy concealer in chantilly, it is good for covering blemishes also but I prefer my Mac Studio finish concealer in NW15 to hide my pesky blemishes and cover the redness around the bottom of my nose, they are a perfect duo together. 

If I'm not fully going out on the contour I just like to use this super easy kit from sleek to give my cheeks and other areas some colour to my pasty self, Sleeks face contour kit in light has the perfect bronzer and highlighter for pale skin beauties, it is a great contour kit or just a good bronzer for an all over easy look and the highlighter is super pretty too, I then like to add some colour to my cheeks and I am loving cream blushers at the minute, a new favourite has to be the Stilla Convertible dual lip and cheek cream in peach blossom, I am not usually one for a two in one product but this is actually stunning and I do use them both for the purposes, it is a stunning lip colour and the perfect colour for my cheeks especially for spring! But when I am feeling a powder blusher I can't get enough of Macs mineralise blush in Dainty, the perfect pink to really add a pop of colour to your cheeks looking natural and healthy. 

On the eyes - Stilla In The Light Palette - I am so glad I purchased this palette on the plane last year at a discounted price, I haven't put it down since I bought it. I mentioned in my favourites post the shades that I use a lot but I do love the palette as a whole and it comes with a great big mirror so it's perfect for being on the go for touch ups and things, I am also not really wearing a lot of liquid liner in the day and the darkest matte brown in the palette is the most perfect shade for creating a liner and looks so more natural but gives your eyes that great definition, I seem to look slightly odd without eyeliner at the top now. Another eye shadow I have been loving is this really gorgeous one from Seventeen in the shade statuesque, it is gorgeous alone or works perfect for a sultry smokey eye, it has gorgeous flecks of shimmer running through it and is a warm bronze shade, perfect for making most eye colors pop. The two mascara's I can't live without at the minute has to be these babies, Eyeko Black magic drama and curl mascara is everything you want in a mascara and the amazing packaging means you won't loose any product at all, Dan's mum seen it on QVC and very kindly bought us both one, I don't even need to curl my lashes before this and it really does give my eyelashes that pretty fluttery feel, curls and the drama for full flattering lashes, if I want them a bit more exaggerated I add some Maybelline Lash sensational mascara, this is a perfect mascara on its own a lone and very similar to the Benefit Roller lash but less messy! But this really adds volume and lift to your lashes. 

Lips - I have been wearing these three lipsticks none stop lately as well as the Stilla Convertible, they go with all my make up looks and the most pretty spring shades to give some gorgeous colour to the lips being subtle at the same time. Mac's creemecheen lipstick in Creme cup being my absolute favourite, I have none stopped talked about it on my blog lately it's everywhere! But it is such a lovely pink/nude and would suit most skin tones I think. If you want a long lasting gorgeous lip colour the Maybelline Color sensational lipsticks never let me down and this is in the shade Peach Poppy, a gorgeous peachy coral, I love a coral in the spring/summer. Then lastly the new L'Oreal matte colour riche lipsticks haven't been a let down either and this stunning pale pink is very opaque and gives your lips a real statement and very similar to Macs Candy yum yum lipstick just not as darker but still bright and vibrant. 

What products do you currently have in your make up bag?
