THE BEAUTY CHRONICLE: WHAT'S IN MY NEW YEARS MAKE-UP BAG?

Festive makeup favourites...


- This morning I am road tripping down to the big smoke to spend my new year celebrations, and the rest of my Christmas break in London.
Although I am only visiting for just under a week, I always seem to struggle to condense my wardrobe into one little suitcase
 "I might need this" …. "I might wear this"
 Ofcourse, this is never the case.

I have come to realise that I haven't written a 
'what's in my makeup bag?'
post in a good long time, I would say well over a year.

So, with my bedroom in a state of disaary, suitcases, bags and clothing scattered all over the floor
I decided to take a break from packing and share my makeup bag favourites…

- My makeup bag itself is a patent bag from the Harrods gift shop.


I was looking for one long enough to encase my Urban Decay Naked Palette and all my everyday essentials, as I do quite a bit of travelling up and down the country.
This one was perfect and fits everything!

*****


- I store my BB creams and primers in little MAC tester pots.
I am currently using the Murad 'Skin Perfecting Primer' and the Dr Jart 'BB Beauty Balm'.
I apply both of these on a flat, foundation brush from my professional brush roll.

- I am using my favourite foundation which is the Collection 2000 'Lasting Perfection'  foundation in Biscuit 3, which I apply using a MAC 130 stippling brush for a real airbrushed finish.
I apply concealer with the warmth of my ring fingers, my concealer of choice is the
Collection 2000, ' Lasting Perfection' concealer in medium 3.


- On my brows I use a dark brown shadow from my W7 'Brow Bar' palette, I apply the shadow with an angled brush and a spooly to even the spread of shadow, this is followed by using a dark brown eyebrow pencil from Rimmel for the tails of my brows. 


I then like to use the Urban Decay Primer potion to prime my eyes reader for shadow application and apply a powder to set my foundation.
I am currently using the Max Factor 'Face Finity' pressed powder, I apply this with a large stipping brush.
In terms of highlighter I use the Benefit 'High Beam' using my fingertips and applying on the top of my cheek bones.


For bronzer I use the Bourjois ' Delice De Poudre' in 51 using an angled brush to contour my cheeks a little bit. 
For blush I am currently using the Kryolan for Glossybox blusher in 'Rosewood', applied to the apples of my cheeks with a rounded blush brush.


I then curl my eye lashes and apply the shade ' Sin' from the Urban Decay 'Naked Palette' all over my eye lids using a No.7 Blend and Contour brush, I then contour the crease of my eye lid using a pencil brush and the colour 'Buck' from the same palette.I blend all of this out with a fluffier brush and the shade 'Virgin'. 


I shade the outer corners of my upper and lower lash lines using a MAC jet black eye pencil and line my inner and outter tight lines with a white eyeliner pencil. 
In terms of mascara I like to apply coat after coat of the Revlon 'Beyond Natural'  mascara for legnth and lashing of the W7 'Double Up' mascara for volume. 


In terms of lip products I have brought a few of my classic favourites down with me.
Lipcoat to seal the deal, Sleek ' 772 Coral Reef', MAC 'Ruby Woo'  MAC ' Girl About Town' 
and a  MAC Dazzleglass in 'Deep Pink'

What's in your makeup bag?
See you in London
