What's in my make up bag?

Hello lovelies!

You have already seen what's in my bag but now I want to get into what's in my make up bag! I don't really carry many stuff but I do carry some essentials with me that may be useful when I'm out and about the city or I just want to do my make up over again... or even if I go out unexpectedly! You never know!

H&M RRP: 3.99€

I tend to add some products depending on the day. Sometimes if I know I'm going to wear a red lipstick, I'll add it to the bag but what I'm presenting you today are my essentials. Very basics! But useful at the end of the day. (Sorry about the creepy quality, it's super cloudy today and I had to add some lights myself!)


Palettes:

Pinaud Palette: It has two eyeshadows. The first one reminds me of Venus from the Naked Basics and then a brown matte one. Very nice for a simple and improvised look. Also, a concealer and a blusher. I got this palette when I bought the Cosmopolitan magazine back in summer and I didn't realise it would be so useful! Not bad for improvised days.

Naked Basics by Urban Decay: I don't always carry this one but I do if I know I may go out later today. Sometimes I'm with my friends and they randomly decide to go to the pub or to a restaurant and since it's so travel friendly I think it's great to have it with me to upgrade my look a little bit.


Eyes

Extra Wow Lash by Rimmel: One of the best mascaras I've got. I used to carry a Clinique one which is amazing but I've been using this one a lot and I'm really happy about it. Makes my eyelashes super long - even longer than how they actually are (which is a lot)

Intense Eyeliner by Deliplus: Deliplus is a Spanish drugstore brand you can only find in Mercadona. They sell amazing beauty products, I must confess. I have used this brand for ages and I love it. The application is great and it doesn't take ages to dry! Plus the size is also travel friendly.

Brown and black eye pencils by The Color Workshop: For Christmas I got one of those huge make up cases as a present and I got these eye pencils that, in my opinion, work as good as any other famous drugstore brand like Rimmel.


Lips

Color Sensational in 125 Shimmer Pink  by Maybelline: This lipstick is great to add some glow to your face. It leaves a light shimmer pink colour on my lips and I always feel them moisturised and soft. I really like it!

Lasting Finish in 002 Candy by Rimmel: Another pink colour! I find this one more moisturising and lighter than the Maybelline one but somehow I always carry both. It's great when I don't feel like wearing an intense colour. PS. It does smell like candy.

Shine Extreme in 10 Melon Fresh by Astor: My mother and me share this lipstick. It's a dark plum colour that I used not to like much until I noticed it looked so well on me since I'm very pale. I'm loving it at the moment.

Vinyl Gloss in 130 Take A Chance by Rimmel: I'm not the biggest fan of glosses but I do like this one. I have two from this range, to be honest, and I wear it sometimes to upgrade my look with any of the first two lipsticks I use.

Fragance Stick in Strawberry Milkshake by Claire's: I'd like to think the name is the biggest mistake ever because they sell it as a crayon lip balm and not a fragance stick. Anyway, this actually moisturises my lips a lot - although it tends to leave my lips almost white if I use it regularly - and it makes me feel hungry since it actually smells and tastes like strawberry milkshake!


What do you carry in your make up bag?

I hope you're having a lovely day!

  2. I'm very tempted to splurge on the Naked Basics Palette!
    I always carry a powder & lipstick around in my make-up bag, sometimes i don't have the time to touch up my makeup :/

    Great post!

  3. I've been wanting the Urban Decay Basics palette for so long, but can't justify it as I have so many colours that are similar to those in the palette! One day I will get my hands on it though :) and I always have to carry around my MAC Kinda Sexy lipstick...the perfect nude, literally wear it everyday!
    I'm holding a MAC giveaway on my blog and would love for you to check it out!

  6. I love my Naked Basics, I over use the colour Naked 2 for my eyebrows, because they are so fair, and it's a perfect colour match. And add Faint if I want a bolder look! Xxx

  11. thank you for your lovely comment in my blog,now let you know the answer:
    About love, you can still keep calm indifferent personality, you have your own insights, like thinking alone solve, problems are not likely to talk and seek help from others. So you tend to be sensitive to the feelings and self-confident, and always want to be able to take the initiative in love.
    For you, love is love, hate is hate, you would keep its promise, but can not stand when not mind to change his mind.
    just a text and have you enjoy it ?

  12. I don't own any Naked palettes, and I think I'd love one of the Naked BASICS palettes as they're so much more travel friendly than the naked ones!

    2. No es la peor que he probado pero sí es cierto que me gustan las máscaras que dejan pestañas bastante exageradas, entonces esta para mi gusto las deja muy naturales. :)
