What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag? – July 2014

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

July 2014

So, now that I’m back from Portugal (I wish I was still there), I thought I’d do an updated What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post. My makeup collection has expanded a lot since I done my Spring What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post from my trip to Paris. And also since I went for two weeks, I took a fairly sizeable chunk of it with me.

For face and eye products I used this sturdy, see through bright green bag, which I got from WH Smith and is technically supposed to be a pencil case, but it worked brilliantly for makeup.

So the last post in my makeup collection series is about all my lip products. This is by far the largest part of my collection. You can see an overview of my Makeup Storage by clicking here and you can see the other parts of my collection series by clicking here. My lip products are stored in the top three compartments of my makeup storage, as shown in the photo below.

Tag – Sunkissed Summer Tag – July 2014

 Sunkissed Summer Tag

July 2014

I saw this tag on YouTube and thought it looked really fun and decided that I had to give it a go. I’m loving summer now that it is here and by the time this posts I will be in Portugal! I’m really looking forward to some sun, sea and sand! And some much needed R&R! So, onto the Tag questions!

1. What is your go-to product for a sun kissed summer glow? (bronzer, self tanner, etc.)

I love bronzers and my current favourite is my Bronze Block in the shade light from Sleek.

Makeup Collection – Face Products – Summer 2014

Makeup Collection

Face Products

As of Summer 2014

After doing an overview of my Makeup Storage in this post here, I decided to go a little more in depth and show what I have in my collection as it has grown quite a lot this year, I’ve become a bit of a makeup addict recently. It isn’t going to be really in depth, but I am going to tell you what everything is. If you would like any swatches or a review on any of the items then please do let me know and I’ll look into doing that for you. I’m going to split my Makeup Collection into a series of three posts, one for lip products, one for eye products and one for face products. This is going to be the post for what I am calling face products and is basically all of my primers, foundations, tinted moisturisers, bronzers, powders, concealers and blushes. These occupy the big bottom section of the box I store my makeup up, pictured below.

Boots and Superdrug

May 2014

So, I’ve been a little makeup and cosmetics crazy recently. I needed some things and I wanted some new things to try so I bought a couple of things from Superdrug and Boots. Compared to some of my other hauls recently, this is fairly small (thank goodness).

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag? – March 2014

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

As of March 2014

I’ve seen several posts floating around recently where people have been sharing what is in their daily makeup bags. Since I’m recently back from a trip to Paris with my mum, I thought I would share what was in my travel makeup bag since most of the things I took are the things I use every day (when I wear makeup, which isn’t everyday usually), with just a couple of extras to change it up occasionally.

Tag – Spring Fling Tag – March 2014

Spring Fling Tag

March 2014

So, I saw this Spring Fling Tag on Miss Holly Berries YouTube Channel and thought it looked like a lot of fun. I think everyone is ready for the winter to be over and this totally helps to get me in the mood for Spring. And it’s March finally, so I class it as Spring. The pastel nail varnishes have been dusted off!

1. What eye palette do you/will you use most this spring?

I very rarely use eye palettes, I pretty much stick to one or two eyeshadows all the time and they are mostly singles. But I did get Barry M’s Natural Glow Palette for Christmas so I’ll be using that a lot this spring. I have debated getting one of the Naked palettes, but I don;t know how much use I’d get out if it.
