Thought I’d do a slightly updated what’s in my bag… call it the spring edition, and I’ll post my next one in summer. This one is more of a weekend bag as I couldn’t pack in everything I need for work on a standard day.
As you can probably guess, its a mish-mash of essentials and other bits, but I’m just going to run you through the bits that are optional extras:
Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour – Luch Nectarine
I don’t know where I’d be without this blush! A slightly over dramatic statement, but I really love it. It’s slightly pink, slightly peach, slightly shimmery. It’s perfect, I can’t wait for summer as I think this will look amazing with a tan.
MUA Cosmetics Lipstick
The perfect nude for my skin tone, and for £1 there’s nothing I don’t love about this lipstick. Need to buy a back up ASAP!
Sleek Pout Polish
I’ve loved these since my best friend gave me her old ones, I recently bought the one above in Peach Perfection, and we are inseparable… until I run out obviously.
Elf Studio Warm Bronzer
I don’t know if I love this bronzer, I feel like it’s too sheer for my skin tone. But it does give a nice glow and works as a lovely highlighter when I’m tanned. It’s basically just thrown in my bag in the moment so I use it up.
Laura Mercier Hand Cream in Ceme Bruelee
Hands down the best smelling hand cream ever! If you’re looking to treat yourself to a new one and aren’t fussed on the price then give this a whirl!
Cath Kidson Note Book
I bought this in a set of 3 in November and I’m only just half way through the first. It goes everywhere with me and I document everything from blog post ideas and shopping lists to notes for interviews.
Make Up Brushes
The black make up brush is an angled brush by Avon, it pats on the LM blush perfectly so I’ve really been enjoying using it for that. The stippling brush is thrown in in case I overload on said blush!
In case anyone is wondering about the bag, it’s a replica I bought on holiday in Turkey last year! I’m in no way in a position to be buying myself a real one *cries!*
