Whats In My Make Up Bag

Hello lovelies,

this weeks blogpost is all about the bits and bobs I carry around in my little make up bag.
You will find some useful things, make up bits and strange stuff in there.

So let´s have a look what we´ll find in there.

First things first, my make up bag is by Ted Baker a british designer who uses a lot of classic designs and loves a good old classic look.
This make up bag is black and pale pink and has rose gold detailing here and there.

If you are only interested in the make up bits scroll past the beauty bits :)

beauty bits:

To go with the rose gold theme I carry a rose gold mirror by kiko cosmetics with me. 
Everyone needs a good mirror in their beauty case. I used to always use the little mirror which comes with little make up palettes or powders but I feel like they are always dirty from the leftovers of the product, so I got my hands on one of this beauties.

There we go, the first really random thing I carry around with me. 
Yes I do always have a toothbrush with me with some toothpaste. 
You never know when this will come in really handy. 
I feel secure carrying one with me.
When I decide to have a spontaneous sleep over at one of my friends or I decide to eat a hell lot of garlic bread at a steakhouse (yes that happens more than I ´d like)
this is a life saver!

The usual stuff just as a hand gel to kill bacterias you catch on the tube or bus, 
or to feel clean after have a good old shopping spree and you decide to have some to go food.
To keep your hands clean is as important as to nourish them which brings me to my beloved handcreme you may already know from my blogpost in June
May Favorites 
This handcreme is so good - so good. 
It´s by yves rocher and make your hands feel so smooth. 
It sinks into your skin really quickly which I love, I hate the feel of sticky hands. 
It smells of blackberries and makes you want to eat it - don't, please.

I always carry a fragrance with me (as well as a deodorant, which is too big for my little bag so it´s not mention in this post)
I always pay attention to my smell. 
It´s really important to me to always smell good. 
Apart of taking regular showers and using a deodorant, a fragrance is a must have for me.
I can´t carry around the big bottles so I use fragrances made for your hand bag.
At the moment I love the attractive girl eau de parfum by mel mere. 
Its flowery and very fresh, perfect for the late summer time.

A travel tangle teezer is alway with me, but I also love having a comb with me.
I don´t use it to brush my hair, I use the brush for that, but my hair is quite thick and tends to just lay around my face flatly after a couple of hours, that´s why a comb comes in handy to brush through the little hair around my hair line and add a bit of volume. 
To add volume you have to comb your hair in the opposite direction in which your hair usually grows.

This wouldn´t be a blogpost of mine if I wouldn´t mention loads of lip products. 
I carry way to many lip products with me.
I always nourish my lips before applying any sort of lip product with color in it.
I love the eos lip balm in strawberry and raspberry for a quick swipe over my lips.
I also love the maybelline new york baby lips products, especially the one for hydration.
If my lips are really damaged I use the aloe lips by forever.
I use this one ever night before bed because it is quite thick and stays one a long long time. 
It hasn´t exactly the most amazing feel to it on the lips but it really makes a difference since I am using this one. 

Last but not least I carry a tweezer and a little nail file with me.
You never know when this will come in very handy. I had a couple situation where someone ask "Does anyone has a nail file with them" and I could say "Actually you know what, I do."
lifesaver - I promise.

Make up bits:

A good old concealer. The most important thing in my make up bag. Especially if you tend on getting blemishes rather quickly or if you noticed that your make up tends to move during the day a canceler is a must have.
Pop it on wherever you need it set it with a bit of powder and you are all good in a few seconds.
This concealer is by rimmel london it´s the wake me up concealer.

Speaking of powder. I always carry a transparent powder with me. You don´t need to worry about color matching or similar issues. 
I don´t carry it with me to cover anything up, it´s just to settle your concealer or to keep your skin from shining like a diamond (see what I did there - funny one, aren´t I?)
I love using the stay matte powder by rimmel london in the color 001 Transparent.

I like carrying a blush with me. What I don´t like is carrying loads of brushes with me so I always have a cream blush with me which I can apply with my fingers when needed.
I have the essence natvent urista blush stain 01 you´re my dragonfly sugar in my make up bag at the moment.

To always have the opportunity to at least redo he basics of my make up when I am away I carry a littler travel size mascara with me by yves rocher its the sexy pulp in 03 rose vf 
and a go to lipgloss sexy pulp 01 noir

I do have way too many lip products in my make up bag already but I always carry the products with me which I used that morning.
Most days it will be a simply nude lip just as Mac Velvet Teddy and a go to lipliner Maybelline New York Super lipliner 41 rosewood.
If you follow my blog for a while you know I am a sucker for this lip look.

I hope you like this weeks blogpost x
