Make up bag: Winter Edition!

Hello My Lovelies

Autumn and Winter is when I use make up the most and when I also tend to buy the most. During the warmer months I try to keep my make up quite minimal but in the Winter I love to try out new products and looks. I thought I'd share with you all what I currently have in my make up bag this Winter.

First up my makeup bag is from Matalan a really decent size that I use for travelling- I love anything that's monogrammed. Inside I have the Kat Von D concealer which I've been using for the past couple of months, whilst it is very good and covers my under eye bags I wouldn't say it's as good as Estee Lauder's double wear and which I need to repurchase ASAP.

The foundation I've been grabbing recently is the candle glow foundation which I picked up in Las Vegas last year- Laura Mercier foundations are my ultimate favourite as they create such a flawless look. I also have Mac Mineralise Skinfinish which mattifies my oily skin and means that I rarely have to top over the course of the day.

I've been going back to my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush recently it's such an easy blendable subtle colour-if you haven't tried anything from this brand you must! Just before Christmas I bought my first ever Charlotte Tilbury eye shadow palette-I love the light colours which can be worn during the day or night. 

My Final three items are ones that I couldn't live without the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz which really is my holy grail eyebrow pencil and one I don't see myself ever changing, from the same brand one of their liquid lipsticks and finally the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray- which I didn't know that I couldn't live without until last year. The setting spray is prefect to keep makeup in place all day and stops it from slipping off of my face.

What are your current must have makeup pieces? Let me know in the comments!

Till next time,


  1. Love that makeup bag! I've been wanting to try that Kat Von D concealer for a while now, but I've heard a few mixed reviews.

    1. Hi Emily,
      I find the Kat Von D concealer very thick and hard to blend. Thank you for leaving a comment.

  2. The Brow Wiz is a lifesaver, couldn't agree more!! Loved this post xoxo
