What's in my Makeup Bag and FOTD

I always love seeing what's inside other people's makeup bags, it's a great way to learn about new products or see what goes well together. I emptied out the contents of my make up bag with the colours I'm currently using.

Top Row: Estee Lauder Double Wear Tawny, Mac MSF Natural in Medium Dark, Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten
Bottom Row: No7 Eyeliner in Black, Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel, Maybelline Gel Liner in Black, Mac Eyeshadow in 'Mulch', Maybelline The Falsies, YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in 01

The bag is a Louis Vuitton Pouchette. I actually bought this over 10 years ago in BTs when I was working a summer job. It has held up really well! It is supposed to be a bag but I need a much bigger bag now so I re-purposed it as a make up bag.

I just love Estee Lauder's Double Wear. I was first introduced to it in school when I was walking by the stand, also in BTs. One of their international make up artists, Alan Pan, was supposed to be doing a make over on a client who didn't turn up so he asked me if I wanted to get my make up done. He used this on my and I have loved it ever since! I use the shade Tawny, it goes nicely with a fake tan! It has amazing coverage and will last all day.

I have been using Mac's MSF Natural for quite few years now. I put it all over my face as a powder to set the Double Wear.

For eyeshadows, I use Stila's Kitten at the brow and Mac's Mulch all over the lid and blend together. I love Mac eyeshadows and I have a lot more. Stila's Kitten shade is the perfect highlighter and found out about it from other blogs. 

 Although I dye my eyebrows since they are naturally blonde, I also like to pencil in my brows to give more shape. I have been using Rimmel's eyebrow pencil for years. This is a good colour for people with light eyebrows as it's not too brown.

I first started using the No7 eyeliner after looking for things to spend the vouchers they give you in Boots. I really like this one for lining the inside of the lids and the smudger is great for softening the looks.

I forgot to take a photo of the Maybelline gel liner but I apply this to my upper lids for a winged effect.

I finish it off with two coats of mascara. I change mascaras a lot, I look for anything that gives good volume. 

I recently fell in love with YSL's Rouge Volupte lipsticks. They are not cheap but they apply so smoothly and the lipstick itself is so pretty. I'd love to get a few more of these.

So I thought after all that, I would show you what all these products look like on. This is me before I have any make up on.

 And these are a few shots of 'after'. It's a pretty simple look and one I would wear in work a lot. I always wear full make up out and about, unless it's a Pilates or Yoga class.

I think the make up makes a pretty big difference! I love the effect it gives.

I hope you liked this post, I will be posting more FOTDs in future! :)
