What’s In My Makeup Bag-My Everyday Makeup

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you are all having a great week:) This week I thought I would share with you what’s in my makeup bag, but only focus on my everyday makeup. I wear makeup almost every day, if I am not up to much at the weekend then I will try and go makeup free and give my skin a break. Nearly everything that I am showing you, I have been using for quite a while now and some I won’t buy again and some I will!

My everyday makeup is very basic and, well, old school I guess! There is no contour, false lashes or winged eyeliner (that’s the Saturday night makeup!). I get up 6.15am every morning for work, so the last thing I want to do is use tweezers anywhere near my eyeballs!

Primer & Foundation

First up is Primer and I am using the Pixie by Petra Flawless and Poreless Primer and my current foundation is Maybelline Fit Me in the shade 120. I usually use the normal to dry foundation, but I do find that this can leave my face really shiny by the end of the day so I use a powder over it. I also tried the Maybelline Fit Me in the normal to oily, but this can really dry out your skin, so I wouldn’t recommend it if your skin is in anyway dry. I am currently on the hunt for a new foundation so I would love to hear if you have any recommendations!


Honestly I don’t normally wear powder, but I bought the Rimmel Stay Matte powder as I wanted to stop the shine from the foundation and also set it. So far I really like this and it is inexpensive.


I used to always use the Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in the shade NW15. I just decided to start trying different concealers and I have landed on the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer in the shade Ivory. I think I will try another concealer after this or go back to the Mac one that I used to always use as I am not 100% sure of this Maybelline concealer yet!

For My Eyes

I use the Make Up Forever Full Coverage Camouflage Cream to prime my lids. I used to use the Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot. I am going to go back to this as I use to wear this on its own with no foundation as it was great coverage, the Make Up Forever lid primer just doesn’t have as good coverage.

My everyday eyeshadow is actually a bronzer, it’s the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. This works great as an eyeshadow! I love the coverage and this little box lasts forever.


I used to use the Benefit Ka-Brow Gel, but I found that this dried out really quickly:( So then I jumped on the band wagon and tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in medium brown. I started using this about four or five months ago and I love it! I don’t have great eyebrows and this stuff is great for making them look fuller than they are. I do need to invest in a clear brow gel to!


My go to colour and the only one I have is the Bobby Brown blush in the shade Nectar. I think I have this blush for over a year and I love the colour. This one is not too pink and gives a nice subtle colour.

That’s pretty much it for my everyday makeup! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and have a great weekend:)
