What's in my make-up bag?

Sunday, 21 September 2014







Foundation: Armani Luminance. I have been using this for years. I find it gives me good coverage without causing a cakey effect. It's a bit pricey at €42 in Brown Thomas. However it's a good €10 cheaper in Dublin airport (The Loop) so I always pick it up there.

Eyeliner: Topshop. Because it is waterproof it lasts really well. It is very soft and glides on easily. I would totally recommend it. 

Bronzer: Nars Laguna. This is somewhat of a cult product. It gives a nice bronze glow and does not have an orange undertone. It might be a bit pricy but it lasts for ages!! I have mine for about 8 months now and there still is hardly a dent in it!
Blusher: Mac in poppy. I have been using this for years. I stumbled across it after a mac up artist used it on me and I have never looked back. It's adds a nice subtle pink that goes with what ever eye shadow I wear. 

Eyeshadow: Naked Basics Eyeshadow. I'm loving matt eyeshadow at the moment. This is really good value for money as it includes 6 colours. I even use the brown to full in my eyebrows!! 

Brushes: Real Techniques Brushes. I bought a pack of these recently and I love them. They are always on special offer in Boots so you can pick them up for a great price. 

Lipstick: Nars Heatwaves lipstick. This is my ultimate go to red lipstick. It has an orangey undertone to it which I love and is not drying in the slightest.

Highlighter: Mac Shimmer-in soft and gental.  I love to use this on top of my cheekbones to accentuate them. Again this product seems to last for ages. I think have had mine for over a year already!! 

Mascara: Essence Mascara. This is a complete bargain at €2.59. It really adds volume and length to my lashes and is probably one of my all time favourites!! Another great one is They're Real by Benefit although it can be a bit pricey. 

Mac Fix It Spray. If I could recommend only one thing on this list to buy it would be this spray. I use it for absolutely everything. I spray my face with it in the mornings, I use it to set my make up and I spray my foundation brush with it before I put on my foundation. The list is endless.

  1. I had no idea that Topshop makes eyeliner! I typically use Makeup Forever's eyeliner but will have to give Topshop's a try sometimes!

  9. Great makeup collection! Pricey makeup is usually well worth its price, at least in my experience. That fixing spray sounds amazing, I'll have to try it.
