IN BEAUTY: ONE NIGHT STAY MAKE-UP BAG


I find myself living out of a bag most weekends and travelling with my chunky make-up bag or my four drawer make-up storage would be a little challenging to say the least when I usually carry my stuff around in a backpack. For one or two night stays I like to travel light with my make-up.

My little, black cat make-up bag is from Primark and is the cutest little thing embellished with jewels and shiny applique. For my base I carry my Almay 'Smart Shade' foundation, the packaging is pretty leak resistant and sits flat against my other products. The coverage is medium build-able and adapts to the pigmentation in your skin which is perfect for any red, purple and pink tones.

To add a little warmth to my face I use my Bobbi Brown multi purpose shadow in the shade 'Rose Shimmer' and apply it to the apples of my cheeks. The pigmented powder is perfect for a sunkissed, glow, it's dewy, light and very easily blend-able.

For brows I use the darkest shade in the w7 'In the city palette' before defining with the Lacura beauty brow pencil in the shade brown. Using the same palette I apply the light, mocha shade all over my lid before adding definition with the more chocolatey brown shade, pulling it through my socket line and under my lower lash line. The black eye liner pencil again, from Lacura beauty is a buttery, smooth formula which can be smudged along the lash-line with the handy blending sponge on the end of the pencil. For mascara the w7 'Flirty Lash' is the perfect formula for building and volumising the lashes whilst keeping them full and separated.

To brighten the entire make-up look I use my favourite, punch pink shade 'As you want Victoria' by Rimmel. The super moisturising formula sits comfortably on the lips looking glossy and bright.

  1. I love the idea of this post, it's so interesting and I am nosy when it comes to what people put in their bags! I love the w7 palette as it's small and easy to carry around, but still has some amazing colours!
