Everyday Makeup Bag

My everyday make up bag is something that I can pull out when I am half asleep on a monday morning before I jump on a train to work but will still give me that flawless put together look. As a make up artist myself I have tired and tested so many different products and I am finally content with my daily routine. 

Having just gotten back from Europe and spending just under a month living out of a suitcase my daily items have been reduced and fit perfectly in to my Ted Baker make up bag ( a little splurge in Selfridges during my trip) and includes some new products which I could not wait to get my hands on when I was in London.

Myself when it comes to my everyday make up I like to keep it light and fresh. I have naturally quiet dry sensitive skin so I lean towards a light dewy coverage particular when my skin is behaving. The Bourjois Happy Light Primer and Foundation (Vanilla Rose) have been my Holy grail team since the beginning of the year. With its bendable formula which I apply with my real techniques buffing brush gives my skin and healthy radiant glow and keeps it hydrated throughout the day. For weekends I love my Garnier BB cream its simple and quick and perfect when I am running out the door. With a touch of Collection concealer and a swipe of my Rimmel stay matte powder down the T zone keeps everything set in place for the day.

Bronzer is an everyday must for me to my skin that healthy glow. Thin Lizzy 8 in 1 powder is a product people love to hate however I am now currently on my 4th or 5th one of these and I feel lost when I don't have any. I even keep one in my handbag for touch ups through out the day. For me I use this product as an all over face bronzer to warm up the face and neck  to give a glow and to help eliminate a little redness. My rose gold Sleek blush is a new purchase and I fell in love instantly. A beautiful pink/ peach with gold tones to help give a beautiful glow when placed on the cheeks and blended up along my cheekbones. A highly pigmented blush and not for those who don't love shimmer. 

My eyes I like to keep simple and most days I rely on some liquid eyeliner, eyelash curler and a great mascara. When I feel like I need to dress it up a little more or need to brighten my eyes up I turn to my colour tattoos in particular my barely branded which works as a great base when paired with my favourite Rimmel in smokey quartz. Alone or together these products are easy to apply and can be blended out in seconds. There is only two products that I have been using on my lips recently and these are my Soap and Glory mother pucker and my Clairns Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter. Both beautiful pink shades that taste and smell as good as they look.

What products are a must in your daily routine?
