What's in my Makeup Bag Part 1 - Face and Lips

I thought I’d share the content of my makeup bag because I love reading posts like this on blogs, and everyone likes a good nosey! I think my makeup bag has products that can be used to create all sorts of looks from day to night.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair 1
I love this concealer so much! I use it every day under my eyes. The only problem is that this shade is always sold out in my local Boots and Superdrug store as everyone where I'm from is so pale that they all need the lightest shade.

Maybelline Mattifying Powder in Classic Ivory

During the summer I tend to get an oily T-zone and I've used some mattifying powders that have made my face orange and cakey but I haven’t had a problem with this one and it lasts all day.

Collection Bronze Glow Shimmering Powder in 1 Light
This bronzer is great as it's light enough to be perfect for my skin tone but obviously dark enough to make me look a tad more bronzed. I use it as a replacement for blusher, I don’t usually contour which is why I don’t have a matte bronzer in my everyday makeup bag.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse in Sand
I mentioned this in my 'letter to the past' post. I threw the opened one away but kept this one. I've decided that this foundation is ok if you moisturise loads beforehand, plus during the summer my skin gets more oily anyway, but it's definitely not something I’ll repurchase.

Body Collection Strawberry Smoothie lipsalve
This lipsalve is always moving from my handbag to my makeup bag. I think lipsalve is up there with the most important things to have in a makeup bag and I love the smell of this one.

Tinted Vaseline
I don’t really use this much, I've never found Vaseline to be the best long term solution to dry and chapped lips, but it’s perfect if I'm having a no/little makeup day.

Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Lacquer
I use a tiny bit of this most mornings as I love the colour of it. I think it’s the perfect shade for every day.

I hope you’ve enjoyed having a quick gander at what’s in my makeup bag. Part 2 will be about eye products which is what I tend to focus on most days.

I'm Back With a Primark Haul!

I have decided to start writing on my blog again!!! I stopped for quite a while as I had literally no spare time; I was applying to University and sitting loads of exams. But there is nothing else I can do now as all my exams are over :D Although that's terrifying as it now means everything is out of my control, it does mean that I now have lots of spare time, and I miss writing this blog so I'm back!!! I went for a quick trip to Primark the other day so I thought I’d share what I bought.

Palm Tree Top (or cannabis top as my sister calls it) - £10
I don’t really know why I bought this to be honest. My sister and I were at the end of our shopping trip and I randomly picked it up as I walked past. I love it despite the fact that a couple of people have said that it lookes like cannabis rather than palm trees.

Sunglasses - £1

ONE POUND FOR SUNGLASSES!!! I really needed sunglasses and I love these so I had to buy them, I also heard somewhere that Primark sunglasses are very good at protecting your eyes from UV light considering how cheap they are.

Bikini - £4
I bought a bikini the other day but I accidentally got the wrong size! It does still fit but I wanted to buy another one that fitted perfectly. My friend also egged me on to buy this.

Flip Flops - £2
I find flip flops the most comfortable footwear ever and I'm camping in a couple of weeks so these will be perfect. There was lots of choice of flip flops at Primark, as there is every year, but these ones stood out the most as I love Mickey Mouse.

Purse - £5
The main thing I went out to buy was a purse because I’ve had the same one for yeeaaaaarrrs and it really doesn’t go with my handbag. Originally I was going to buy a purse form New Look which kind of went with my bag but then I found this one in Primark and it matched my bag more and was way cheaper!!!

Rings - £3
I’ll be honest… I have no clue why I bought these! I guess there was some weird force encouraging me to buy them and I’m only human so I didn’t have the strength to resist. Basically I thought they were really pretty so I bought them.

Bikini Cover Up - £10
Again, I don’t know why I bought this but I tried it on with a bikini in the changing room and it looked really pretty so I had to buy it.

Okey Dokey, that’s it. I’m beginning to think that I’ve bought these things for summer at the wrong time. When I bought them it was really hot and felt like summer was in full swing, but since then it’s been raining the whole time!!!

Have you bought anything from Primark or anywhere else recently?
