so i've seen a few of these 'whats in your makeup bag?' and 'whats in your hand bag?' type blogs/vlogs over the past few months so decided to do a quick one myself! as a makeup artist, people probably assume i take great care in my skin care and makeup regime. the truth is... i try. i'm a student, i'm 20 years old and quite frankly, i'm a lazy sod. i don't wear a great deal of makeup in my every day life but i do have lots of products in my makeup bag that i use when i'm going for lunch, going to university or on a night out.
above is my makeup bag for everyday use. it is from all saints, think it was around £50 which is extortionate but it was a gift, i promise!
a sneak peak into my messy makeup bag!
above we have pretty much everything i would ever need to use for a day or night basic makeup look. there are a few foundations in there, my favourite is chanel vitalumiere aqua which i wear in the shade '20 beige'. i always have vaseline to hand and for a day to day lip colour i usually stick with mac lipstick in 'creme de nude'. included here we have models own eyelash curlers, bobbi brown black ink gel liner, illamasqua satin primer, bourjois volumiser mascara, bourjois bronzer and highlighter, witch concealer, mac eyeshadow in 'tempting', revlon lipstick in '140 kiss me' and the list goes on! in day to day life i tend to stick with a tinted moisturiser, a bronzed cheek, lashings of mascara and a nude lip, however if i have more time to get ready i occasionally add a smoky eye or bold lip.
now, dont get me wrong, fingers are one of the best tools when it comes to makeup application, but i do have 6 brushes i swear by. from left to right; real techniques samantha chapman buffing brush, screen face fine liner brush, mac 239 shadow brush, illamasqua powder brush, bobbi brown brow and lash brush, and finally the mac 266 angled brush.
...having said that, here is a small collection of some of my makeup brushes.
does anyone have any recommendations regarding makeup/tools i should be using day to day?! is there something i'm missing out on? :)
