WHAT'S IN MY MAKEUP BAG? | SPRING ROTATION

I recently revamped my makeup bag for spring, I absolutely love changing up my makeup bag as I get to use products that I may not use as often and I get to follow the reinvigorated trends for the season. A handful of the products I use are genuine staples in my collection and very rarely get changed up unless, I’m trying something out for reviewing purposes, but some things are too good to replace! I currently use the Zoeva makeup bag that I got with my Zoeva Rose Gold Brush set. I love it as it’s really slim, so it doesn’t take up too much room, but still fits in all my everyday necessities!

As always, I have my Maybelline Pore Eraser primer, which I absolutely love and has been a staple in my collection consistently for over a year now. I love using this before my makeup as it allows my base to go on really nicely and also prolongs the wear of my makeup. For the base, I have been loving the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, as it’s perfect for a light, natural base for the spring! Another staple in my collection is the Maybelline Fit Me concealer, which I like for an everyday basis as it’s medium coverage and is great for under the eye as well as on blemishes. I recently switched up my MAC MSF for my Maybelline Fit Me powder, which is nice and compact and I feel like it’s a cheaper alternative for the MAC MSF powder.

I’ve been going to and fro with highlighters, switching between creams, powders and mousses however I went back to the Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow Duo, which adds a nice subtle highlight to the cheeks and captures the light beautifully! I recently For days when I don’t want to wear an actual blusher or highlighter, I have my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in diffused heat, which is a nice blusher/highlighter hybrid and adds a nice, flush of colour to the cheeks! I’ve gone back to powder contour, in the form of the Sleek Face Form Kit, which enhances my natural contours.

I don’t have any lip products in here, as I tend to switch it up on a daily basis, however I have quite a few eye products. I’ve demoted my Illamasqua Brow gel to the Muji drawers, as the Soap& Glory Archery is quicker for the early mornings especially with my Maybelline Brow Drama, which is literally the best brow set I’ve tried. I’ve got two eye primers so I can choose which one I use depending on the makeup look I want. A familiar suspect is the Urban Decay Primer Potion, however a newbie is the Laura Mercier Eye canvas, which is a nice salmony pink, which counteracts any blue veins. A new favourite is the Max Factor Excess Shimmer in Bronze, which is perfect for an easy but pretty everyday shade adding a hint of shimmer. For mascara, I have the Maybelline Lash Sensational, which is another new favourite, perfect for adding a bit of length and a lot of volume to the lashes!


Do you have any staples in your makeup bag?

  1. Wow, great product you have there! And the Zoeva bag is lovely! I tend to mostly have lipstick on me, nothing else, and they tend to accumulate over the week ^^
