what's in my make up bag

NARS COPACABANA MULTIPLE: I've been using this highlighter for years as it's the perfect pearlescent shade that adds a beautiful glow to my cheeks. As it comes in stick form it's perfect to reapply throughout the day too.

CHANEL VITA LUMIERE FOUNDATION: This foundation has been a staple in my routine for a couple of months now, it's perfect for my skin and gives me the glow that I need. Review here.

SISLEY SO INTENSE MASCARA: I've tried millions of mascaras over the years and this has been the best by far, it gives me thick and defined lashes that last all day. It costs a bomb so is only suitable for those who don't mind investing in their make up, I have a review coming up soon.

NUXE REVE DE MIEL LIP BALM: My lips are always suffering in the cold weather so I find this balm is an absolute must have to use on a daily basis. It's the best balm that I've ever used and I won't be giving it up any time soon. Review here.

SHU UEMURA EYELASH CURLER: My lashes go from looking drab to fab every time that I use lash curlers, obviously you don't need to fork out on the most expensive but these are certainly the best on the market. Review here.

RITUALS LIQUID EYELINER: In my opinion this is the best liquid liner in the world, it gives a precise line and is really pigmented too. I've been using this one for six months now and it's still going strong. I will write a full review soon!

HD BROWS PALETTE: Filling in my brows is the most important part of my beauty routine and this palette makes them look defined in moments, meaning that I can get away with wearing less make up which is always a bonus. Review here


  1. I looked for the Nuxe Reve De Miel once in a store and balked at the price. It's so expensive for a lip balm :o It's nice that it works so well on you though! I hope I can find a nice alternative for it x

    1. it's expensive but it lasts longer than x5 (£2) basic lip balms. Sometimes drugstore stuff is to fool people :) Better buy good stuff than loads of bad. Look at quality not at quantity :)

  2. I'm dying to try the Nuxe Reve De Miel but I just can't justify the price!x


  3. I need to get myself a Nars multiple they look ideal for Summer but I've never got around to picking one up for some reason! x

  4. what do you use to do the 'whats in my bag' banner at the top? looks ace! x

    1. thanks! I actually did the swatch myself and edited it on photoshop. x

  5. Lovely! I'm thinking to pick up that Chanel foundation for Spring/Summer!


  6. I love the HD Brow Palette - still the best thing I have tried! & I'm hoping to try a sample of the Chanel foundation, been trying to put off sampling it in case I fall in love!


  7. Your makeup bag is adorable, I'm assuming Cath Kidston? Gorgeous! xx

  8. I have that Nars multiple too!
    It's great and lasts you forever

  9. want to try a nars multiple so badly! x


  10. I love the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua but since being pregnant I've found that a mineral powder has been quicker and easier for makeup application (I just can't be bothered with careful makeup application anymore lol).

    Your makeup bag is just adorable. I'm super jealous ;)
