Inside my Makeup bag

I'm not one of those girls with a hugely extensive makeup bag and incredible knowledge of how to apply everything perfectly. I own the basics and know what I like and that's enough for me! So here are the details of my make up bag:

For my nails
My collection is mostly full of bright colours and pastel shades, with a few sparkles thrown in as well. I'm a big fan of OPI and the American Apparel Nail Lacquer.

For my eyes/eyebrows
I have a Look in a Box Eyeshadow Palette which is great for the range of colours but for day-to-day wear I mostly stick with a soft brown/peachy colour. I fill in my brows with the Revlon Colorstay Brow Liner and finish off my eyes with Mac Zoom Lash Mascara and Revlon Colostay Liquid Liner.

For my skin
I keep it pretty simple with my skin. Revlon Smoothing Primer to create a smooth base for my foundation and minimize the appearance of my pores, Revlon Colorstay Foundation and a dash of Mac Blush on my cheeks.

For my hair
My hair is naturally a little bit out of control. (I don't know how to describe it, just very wavy and large). I straighten it most days, just to keep it in line (even if I still want a bit of wave and bounce, I have to straighten it a little to keep it tidy). I use GHD Obedience Cream to keep it in line and swear by Moroccan Oil for nourishing and replenishing.


  1. I desperately need an eye shadow palette like that.

  2. Do Mac still sell those eye shadow palettes? If so, how much are they? It's so hard being a poor student and wanting to still wear Mac makeup!

  3. That shadow palette looks great!


  4. Unfortunately the MAC palette is totally fake. Sorry. MAC don't wholesale their products.

  5. Hey anonymous (sorry not sure what else to call you, not being rude)

    I got the eyeshadow palette off Ebay a couple of months ago, I'm not sure if it's fake or not.... Do you think it really is? Either way I've been enjoying it. It does have the Mac branding all over the packaging though, but maybe I've been deceived.

    I've updated the link to a site which might be more relevant. Thanks for your comment :)

  6. Sorry, I don't mean any offence by pointing that out. But yeah. eBay is full of fake MAC products.

    There are quite a few articles online about how to spot fake MAC stuff.

    I only point this out because it's not like a fake handbag or accessory. You're putting it on your skin. You trust a brand like MAC. You deserve the know the quality of that product. It's not worth putting your health at risk.

  7. I'm sorry but as an ex make up junkie, I should probably tell you that MAC does not sell those kind of eyeshadows. They never put those applicators with their palettes and also never have so many colors in one palette. I think that website is a fake...I'm sorry but I had to tell you!
    Either way, if you enjoy the palette there's nothing wrong with it..i just hate it when websites say they own a brand when they actually sell a fake..

    Do love your make up bag, and i adore your nailpolishes and moroccan oil.. makes me think i should buy the moroccan oil as well. is it really that good?? my hair is usually one big mess!


  8. I love nail polish and your collection is just beautiful :)


  9. Oh you didn't offend me at all, don't worry :) It's nice of you to point it out. I've changed the name of my link so I don't mislead anyone else :)

    And thanks Michelle as well! I would definitely recommend Moroccan oil, nothing else makes my had feel so good!

  10. I am obsessed with all of your nail polishes!!! i wish i had that much!

  11. So glad to see that I'm not the only one who enjoys some department store makeup ever once in a while! ;D

    Thanks for sharing!

  12. i loove nail polish! it's some sort of unhealthy addiction or mine.
    And by the way, your new header is nice :)

  13. I bought that exact revlon eyebrow brush for years and loved it but recently tried the MAC brown pencil and haven't looked back. I loved the revlon one but sometimes found it could rub off easily, yet the MAC one stays on through anything. Just a suggestion :)

  14. Your make up bag is my dream come true!

    Good to know about the Morrocan oil too....my hair is pretty out of control...I hate it.

  15. I love your new-look blog. It looks super fresh!

    Your makeup bag makes me swoon. And it makes me realise just how badly I need to organise mine... Definitely time for a makeup spring clean!

  18. I love posts like this because if someone loves a product enough to blog about it, then it's gotta be good.
