Make up bag essentials

We all have some form of make up in our handbags depending on our day ahead. If you’re like me, it will be minimal. All I go for is a lip balm, lipstick and lip gloss, and I’ll keep a power compact in there just in case.  I find lately I have less and less time to put any makeup on in the morning. So I invested in a compact, which has eye shadow, blush, lipstick, translucent stay powder and compact powder. I just keep mascara and eyeliner in my bag. However it’s hard to get a make up compact that has a good array of colours, I find I only use the one colour out of everything so I decided I would put together a proper make up bag to go into my handbag, that will cover the essentials. Feel free to suggest other items!

  1. Make up wipes; I always mess up my eyeliner.
  2. Fountain what ever your shade is and whatever tool of choice you use to put it on, sponge or brush.
  3. Or if you’re like me a try a powder fountain for quick and easy application.
  4. An eye shadow palette, you know what colours suit you but if all else fails go for natural tones, browns, neutral shimmers, beiges.
  5. Mascara, enough said.
  6. Eyeliner, I always go for black its simple and works with most colours.
  7. Lip Balm something with loads of vitamins and minerals to help out your lips.
  8. Lipstick, if you have a favourite shade, if not try a natural colour just above you own.
  9. Lip gloss, pick a clear colour, so it can go over whatever lipstick you are feeling for the day.
  10. Bronzer, I am so pale I need this to add an extra bit off colour to my face, however I know a lot of women out there a lucky enough to not need this, am rightly jealous of you ladies!
  11. A few spare brushes, mirror, brow pencil, and if you need an eyelash curler.

So you’re set, for both day and night :)
