What's In My Makeup Bag?: March


*Item prices are approximate*

1. Charlie Touch Body Spray 
Not exactly the most glamorous of scents, but nice and refreshing all the same! I like to carry mini ones around with me so I can easily slip them into my bag.

2. L'oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream (Light Skin Tones) - £9.99
My absolute lifesaver and 'go to' product of this year so far (keep an eye out for the review coming soon). This is a blemish balm, so it looks exactly like a foundation, except it is much better for your skin. It is a 5 in 1 perfecting cream, so it moisturises everything, gives you great coverage all day long and protects your face with an SPF 12. Girls... please use BB creams instead of foundations! They won't even clog your pores :) 

3. L'oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Blush - £7.99
I'm definitely a fan of L'oreal products aren't I? This blush is excellent when used on the apples of your cheeks after having used the BB cream/concealer/etc. It comes out as a gel (weird right?) so when it is put onto the skin and rubbed in, it creates a gorgeous, rosy glow. 

4. Nivea Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturising Day Cream in 'Natural' - £.3.66 
This is one of those makeup items that I don't use that often but I just keep in the bag anyway. I bought it when I was first experimenting with tinted moisturisers. It works as a great foundation base if I run out of the other product I'm using. It evens the skin tone out, but I would suggest if you buy this that you mix it with a moisturiser first before applying because it can be quite dry. 

5. Minnie Mouse Front Row Silver Eye Dust 
Ideal for that quick, smokey eye look. Goes with any outfit too! 

6. Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H in '01 Black' - £7.99
A recent find! So much easier to create tidy flicks than a liquid liner because the gel is quite thick, and it comes with a brush to glide it on easily (bonus!) I have used this product so much since I bought it, and there's still so much of it left in the pot. 

7. Clarins Lipstick in Red Shade '330' - £19.00 
Red is my signature lip colour. It gives a sexy pop of colour when on a night out. I also dab it on to my lips sometimes with my fingers if I want it to look a bit more natural/subtle. 

8. Collection Illuminating Touch Brightening Concealer in 'Glow 3' 
Helps to conceal my dark circles and blemishes. I use it as a quick base before anything else, especially to brighten up tired eyes.
