What's In My Makeup Bag - Linky

I'm so excited to share "What's in my Makeup Bag?" part of the link up with Sara from Where is my mind?. I haven't done a post like this since...let's just say a long time.


First off I love this Benefit Makeup bag that I have and it's perfect for all that I need. I love how it opens up to so I'm not fishing around blindly trying to find what I need.




For my foundation I use the MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF15 in the shade NW13 & I think I could go a shade lighter but I'm hoping that the sun might come out soon. For my contour (I use the term lightly as that's how light I go) I'm using the NYX Powder Blush in the shade Taupe, this works perfect on my pale skin for contouring it also has a slight purplish undertone to it. This is really great for building the colour as well so works for me to chisel those cheekbones. For concealer I'm going between Wet n Wild CoverAll & Benefit Fakeup. I save the Benefit Fakeup  for when my under eyes are extremely dry & tight as this is just fab for helping out both those problems.

For my blush I'm using my new MAC Wash & Dry Blush in the lovely colour Hipness, this a really pigmented blush but is long wearing and has a coral/pinky tone. The finishing powder I am using is the NYX  Radiant Finishing Powder which is so smooth and soft.


For my eyes I'm obsessed with using my Stila Eyes are the Window Palette (spirit) and for extra staying power I'm using the Catrice Prime and Fine Eyeshadow Base which is an absolute bargain and essential. I tend to go between using two mascaras and at the moment I'm using Wet n Wild Max Volume Plus and Benefit Roller Lash. For my eyebrows I'm never without my trusty Benefit Gimme Brow.


Finally I finish off with my lip products and at the moment in my makeup bag I have MAC Wash and Dry Steam Heat and NYX Butter Gloss in Cherry Cheesecake. Never thought I would wear an orange gloss but I love it!

So that's the contents of my makeup bag at the moment, this changes weekly. I can't wait to see what you have in your bags and don't forget to join in with the linky just click on the photo below for more info!

  3. Snap on the foundation! Although I took the plunge and use an NW10. I still haven't tried the NYX Taupe blush yet though which I think is practically sinful for a pale blogger.
    I am also really loving the look of that Stila palette. I'm definitely going to have to check out more from them.

    1. I love the foundation and I'm going to go ahead and order the NW10, I just seem to be getting paler the last few weeks it's so strange haha. The NYX Taupe blush is still relatively new to me and wanted to try it as I've heard it was good for paler skin for contouring, I'm still on the fence how I feel about it. Stila have choice of 4 in the Eyes are the Window palettes I'm obsessed x

  5. I love the look of that Stila palette, it's a brilliant size too for a makeup bag! I haven't tried that blush either! I bought NC15 in MAC last time and it's also too dark for me at the minute, amazing how your skin changes colour x I have my post ready to go! x
