Today's Make Up Bag

Today was one of those days where I was flying from one place to another, and those are the days that I tend to carry around my make-up bag. Today's make-up bag looked something like this..


1. The Make Up Bag
My Mulberry Locked Cosmetic Purse in Oak, aka my pride and joy. This is my on-the-go make-up bag and I blimmin' love it - AND I DON'T CARE WHO KNOWSSSSS! (too much, too much).

2. The Face Base
We've got a few here - the MAC Prolongwear Foundation sample in NC30 which I was road-testing today (great coverage and finish, but sliding off my nose and settling in pores :( Not cool.), Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Medium which is great for both spots and undereyes, and the Chanel Poudre Universelle Compacte in Dore because.. it's awesome - read more about it here.

3. Colour.. what does it rhyme with?
I usually have a few lipsticks and glosses with me, but that lives in the inner pocket of my bag (you can probably guess what the lipstick was anyway - 10pts for people who get it correct!). Otherwise I carried around my NARS Blush in Torrid - great for brightening up your face, as well as my new Estee Lauder Pure Colour Eyeshadow in French Vanilla which I have been adoooooooring! See swatches of that here.

4. The Necessities
I usually carry around my eyelash curlers, but seeing as I have my lash extensions from Boudoir Lashes* in at the moment, I carry around a mascara instead - this is the Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum' Express Mascara. It looks different from my usual one because this one isn't waterproof! Then I've got my Travel-size Sigma F50 to use with aforementioned powder face products.

So there you have it! Quite basic, but I think I used everything except the concealer and foundation to top up and freshen up!

Do you carry around a make-up bag all the time or just sometimes?

  1. I always carry around a makeup bag or rather make up pouch but it doesn't look anywhere near as nice as yours haha. Also, I'm now contemplating those two Maybelline products you've mentioned. ;) x

    1. Haha it was definitely a treat for when I graduated my undergraduate degree! Ah yes, they're both very good! I'm not sure where you are from, but they're unavailable in some parts of the world :(

    2. I live in London so should be alright. Also, you've just given me the idea of thinking up something really nice to buy once I've completed my masters. :)

    3. Aww sadly the concealer isn't available in the UK, I'm not sure about the mascara though I bought mine in Japan and I know the waterproof version isn't available here! :( Yes you definitely need a treat for that! I just finished mine earlier this month :)

  2. I actually don't carry round a makeup bag :/ Just a few different lipsticks, lip balm and blotting paper. I guess that is more than nothing... I think bronzer and concealer will be added in to the mix before long because I do want to touch up sometimes and never have anything to do so. xo

    1. That's me usually! You're right, concealer is often quite useful to have, and depending on longevity, bronzer and blusher can help to freshen up!

  6. The makeup bag is really cute! You just gotta love Mulberry. <3

    I usually don't carry make up with me, unless I will be out and about the whole day.

  7. I see your high-end products have increased ;) You can really feel the difference in some right?

    I only carry some basics with me in my bag.. Concealer, eyebrow pencil, eye pencil and of course some kinda lip balm..

    1. Haha it really has - I think you're partly to blame :) Oh completely.. I think the biggest difference is longevity in a lot of high end products which I think is really worth it.
