I know the majority of us love having a look into other peoples handbags, makeup bags and even showers so I've decided to start a weekly feature where beauty bloggers show the current contents of their makeup bags! I apologise in advance for any wish lists which might just happen to double in size during this time but we're a nosey, needy bunch aren't we. ;) First up is Alice from Bright Town Girl
Hey readers of Been There, Done That, Got The Lipstick. I'm Alice from Bright Town Girl and the lovely Fran has asked me to share the contents of my make up bag with you.
I have been house sitting for some friends recently so I thought I would share with you what I took away with me.
First my make-up bag is from Primark a while back, I don't think it was any more than £5. I think it’s really cute and it fits loads in.
When I go away I always pack my essentials which include the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer 01, Clinique High Impact Mascara, Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Powder, Collection Illumination Touch Concealer, MUA Professional Eye Primer and my Mac Quad which includes Copperplate eye shadow which I use for my brows. These are products I reach for almost daily and that I always repurchase.
I have been loving the MUA Undress Your Skin Illumination Foundation recently so I decided to bring that with me, also the Shimmer Highlighter from the range for when I want to add some highlight to my cheekbones
For under my foundation I have the Witch Anti Blemish Skin Primer which acts a great base for any foundation as well as helping with my pesky blemished skin. Too finish my base off I then dust some Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzing Powder all over to give me a bit of colour and I have my Ebay Blush Palette to add a bit of colour to my cheeks. This palette includes every colour blush you could wish for.
For my eyes I brought along the Urban Decay Glinda Palette which is my new favourite thing. This has a lovely mix of pink neutrals as well as some deeper purples which you can create some wonderful looks with. It also contains a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Rockstar for when I want to add some definition.
Lastly for lips I have L'oreal GlamShine Gloss Stain in Princess and Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Belladonna. Both of these are long lasting lip colours that have great pigmentation with a glossy finish.
For Tools I have my trusty Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, Sigma E25 for blending shadow, Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush for concealer, Laura Mercier Eye Crease Brush for crease work, The Vintage Cosmetics Company Eye Shadow Brush to pack eye shadow on, Crown Brush angled liner and Spoolie for my brows, Japonesque Blush Brush, The Vintage Cosmetic Company Duo Fibre Brush for bronzer, Sephora Mineral Brush for powder and Eco Tools Buffing Brush for foundation. Phew!
As you can tell I am not really a travel light kind of girl, but I do use these most days to do my full face of make up.
Thank you Fran so much for letting me feature on your blog and I hope everyone enjoyed my post?
I was so excited to see the Sephora Mineral Brush included, I'll soon me getting my grubby mitts on one of my own and can't wait to try it. The MUA foundation sounds really good too! I'm still a MUA virgin but have a feeling that might change soon. :) Thanks to Alice for sharing the contents of her makeup bag!
