Current Make Up Bag

Who doesn't love a little snoop in other peoples make up bags?! I for one am always so interested (nosey) to see what people are painting on their faces every day! So, even though I have never did one of these posts before, I thought that seeing as I have been using (and loving) a lot of new and exciting things now would be as good a time as any. Also its probably important to mention that I've been wearing a lot less make up ever since I came home from Lisbon and my whole make up look is so much more low maintenance in terms of every day wear...

I always opt for this Simple Light Moisturizer as a base for my make up seeing as its so affordable and is nourishing without being greasy or leaving any gross residue on the skin. I no longer wear foundation for every day wear mainly because I don't like how heavy it feels on my skin. Instead I wear Bourjous 123 Perfect CC Cream which is completely perfect since it offers pretty good coverage for a CC cream and yet feels light as a feather on the skin and so breathable! It isn't the best in terms of longevity so I normally use the Nars Radiance Optimizing Primer which also contains SPF 15 and gives my skin the most gorgeous glow! In terms of concealer I've recently switched from my beloved Collection one to this Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer and I love how good it is for hiding those awful under eye bags! My skin has been pretty good recently so I haven't needed anything too heavy which suits me perfectly!

I always contour no matter how little time I have on my hands and to do so I normally switch between a few products but of all of them Hoola by Benefit is probably my favourite. I used to make such a huge fuss of filling in my brows but now that I get them threaded and tinted on a more regular basis I can afford to use a more low maintenance product and I've been opting for the Glo&Ray Silky Fumo Brow Pencil, which is silky smooth and creamy and so easy to apply that it takes just a few seconds. Something which I don't wear all the time but like to keep in my everyday make up bag is neutral toned eye shadows and this quad Lid Stuff by Soap&Glory (unfortunately it's not available at the moment) literally has all bases covered with three mattes and a shimmer shade.

What I do normally wear on the eyes on a daily basis however is a little bit of liquid liner and currently I've been using the L'oreal Superliner which admittedly isn't my absolute favourite but it lasts okay with a primer underneath. One product I do completely love though is the Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara which reminds me sooooo much of Benefit Rollerlash but for just a fraction of the price. It's honestly one of the best mascaras I've ever tried for creating volume and length; its insane how many compliments I get on my lashes when I'm wearing this! Lastly I like to use the Bare Minerals Marvellous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready which surprisingly gets little recognition here in the beauty blogging community despite being one of the most moisturizing and long lasting lipsticks I have tried. This particular shade is so wearable for any occasion!

Whats in you guys make up bags? Have I mentioned any of your favourites?
