Whats In My Festive Make Up Bag

whats in my festive make up bag, charlotte tilbury, mac cosmetics, bobbi brown, lancome, jo malone fragrance, party make up

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation | SHOP HERE
My absolute favourite foundation. I've been using this for two years now and I've not found anything better. The coverage is medium but buildable if you need it and it leaves the most beautiful subtle glow to the skin that looks like your skin but better. It photographs well (great bonus!) so it's perfect for evenings out as well as for the day time. If you haven't tried this I really recommend you do - you won't regret it!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze | SHOP HERE
I've tried a lot of highlighters and the reason I always gravitate towards this one is because it's so versatile. I use this as a highlight on my cheeks, as a bronzer to warm up my face and as an eyeshadow! The 5 colours in the palette can take your eyeshadow from day time to night time so it's always handy to have this compact on you.  If you use the lighter colours at the top of the palette you'll get a beautitful highlight to the skin, or if you use all colours mixed together you'll get a lovely bronze highlight and bronze colour on the skin. I definitely recommend this product and it's great to travel with.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Exposed | SHOP HERE
I picked this up at Sephora earlier this year and I was so surprised I hadn't tried any of Tarte's blushes before! It's a beautiful muted pink colour that's super easy to blend on the cheeks and lasts a long time. It's known for it's 12-hour wear and I definitely can't fault that, it's perfect for those days you want your make up to last. The formula includes natural clay from the Amazon River so it's good for your skin as well as lasting all day.

Lancome Hypnose Mascara | SHOP HERE
This mascara may be on the more pricey side but it's worth every penny. I find that this gives me both length and volume with only a few coats. I normally like to mix a few mascaras because I love the look of full lashes but only using this one gives me the same effect. I always travel with this mascara too and it's great to have with you for touch ups.

Mac Gel Eyeliner in Blacktrack | SHOP HERE
I can't recall how long I've been using this gel eyeliner for. I first purchased it back in 2012 and it's been a staple in my make up bag ever since. I like to use a liquid eyeliner too sometimes but when I want my make up to last all day I find that this gel eyeliner works better.

Mac Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo | SHOP HERE
Can we just take a second to appreciate how stunning this lip colour is? This is my perfect red lipstick, it's matte and it stays on the lips all day. I tend to wear this lipstick with Nars Cruella and it's a perfect combination. If you're looking for affordable red lipsticks check out my blog post I did here all about them!

Jo Malone London Vanilla & Anise | SHOP HERE
This may not be a festive scent but it's my favourite one at the moment. The sweet undertones of vanilla make this such a lovely and warm scent that's also not too heavy or overbearing. If you like scents like Victor & Rolf flower bomb, you'll love this one. I love that Jo Malone have their smaller perfumes as they're a great way of trying scents and not committing to a full bottle.
