Must Haves For Your Makeup Bag

Is your makeup bag full of random, unwanted or unused products? The ones that were on offer that time, or you thought that you’d try out – that you either never got round to using, or used once and didn’t like? We’ve all been there. I decided to have a clear out of my makeup bag the other day, and whilst I was guilty of harbouring out of date, useless, or unused makeup products, there are some that I ADORE and will buy again and again. And I’m starting with my longest makeup relationship:

๐Ÿ’„ Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara

Iโ€™ve used this for over 10 years! And whilst Iโ€™ve dabbled with others, Iโ€™ve never come across any mascara that works better than this one. It helps if your curl your lashes first, and with the right technique, this stuff really is amazing. No clumps here!

๐Ÿ’„ L’oreal Glam Nude CC Cream

Gorgeous for summer when you want a bit of coverage but nothing too heavy.

๐Ÿ’„ Wunder2 Last & Foundation

I discovered this through Facebook last year when I was on the lookout for the perfect wedding foundation, AND I LOVE IT. It’s the best coverage I’ve found for my combination skin without being too heavy, and is especially good at covering spot redness. The only problem is that even the lightest shade is too dark for my skin, so I need a layer of tan on when I use it…but it’s totally worth it.

๐Ÿ’„ Revolution Cream Countour

Whilst I’ll talk about my favourite makeup products, I’ll never be an expert. So, for a non-expert, and contouring still being a newish thing in everyday makeup, last year I invested in this contour kit. A good (and affordable) option for those who haven’t cream contoured before and aren’t sure where to begin. With lots of different shades, it’s a great way to experiment and learn, without breaking the bank.

๐Ÿ’„ Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

Another discovery during my wedding makeup hunt, recommended by a fellow blogger. This stuff is gorgeous, helps minimise the look of pores, and leaves your skin silky smooth and ready for foundation.

And last but not least:

๐Ÿ’„ Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water & Setting Spray

Do you remember back in the day when we used to set our makeup with hairspray? Those times are behind me, because I was introduced to this in readiness for the wedding. The light mist settles nicely on the face without becoming oily, and definitely prolongs the wear of your foundation – a very important factor when you have an active job!

What are your makeup must haves?
