What is in my make up bag?

I have the most basic make up bag in the entire world. The photo above pretty much displays its entire contents. It makes travelling easier but I sometimes wish that I was more into makeup and had more products to experiment with and could do more then one look.

So whats in my bag...
1. Clinque 'Superbalanced' liquid foundation (Colour:27 Alabaster)
2. Clinique 'Almost powder' (Colour: 3 light)
3. Clinique Eyeshadow and Blush - is it obvious by now that I am a Clinique girl.
4. Blush brush
5. Nutrimentics Micro- Dermabrasion - this isn't make up but I just started using this product and it is amazing, my skin is so silky smooth I recommend you get in it.
6. Black eyeliner - so old the brand has worn off
7. L'Oreal moisturier - did you know your meant to wait 20 minutes between moisturising and putting on your make up, I only learnt this on Thursday not sure if I am behind the ball game or its an old wives tale.
8. Dior 'Rogue Dollce Vita' #14
9. Sportsgirl lipgloss 'Peachy Keen'
10. L'Oreal Lash Architect
11. OPI Sparkle-icious
12. Black XS perfume

I have other lipglosses/sticks, nail polishes and perfume but just wanted to show my favourites of the moment. Is there any products you recommend I try? I feel like I need to expand my horizons. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. I am spending my Sunday afternoon buying a new bed, doing the groceries, going to the gym and watching True Blood - very addicted to this show.


  1. love love love clinque foundation!!

  2. My makeup bag is even more basic than that! I've heard good things about clinique foundation- a friend of mine highly recommends it.

    Have fun buying a new bed. I remember when we bought ours- I was so excited!

  3. it's been so long since i've used clinque but i definitely love their products. as a makeup artist i am 100 percent encouraging you to explore more into it. it is absolutely wonderful and i don't know why i didn't fall in love with it sooner.

    thanks for sharing!

  4. I love Clinique. I use both concealer and moisturizer, and usually blush from there. Most of my powder makeups (Foundation, bronzer, etc) are mineral makeup that I bought forever ago and is still not used up, but I also love the Clinique bonus's that the department stores do and a lot of the eyeshadow I use is from the little testers that come with those!

  5. How good is OPI? :)

    My make up bag is mostly full of eye make up, because I love experimenting with eye make up. The best eyeshadows I've found are Napoleon and The Body Shop.
