Whats In Your Make-up Bag?
I always find myself using the same few products time and time again - the classics. These are essentially, the most important things I have in my make-up bag, although they’re certainly not the only things in there. GI VE NC Ey H eb row Y Sh ow Po wd ery Ey eb row Pe nc il

I know that every once and a while, I’ll walk passed a make-up stand that has this seasons orange lipstick or deep red eyeshadow and think “wow, this is so Galliano” and I’ll end up buying it, and it will rot at the bottom of my make-up bag, because lets face it - sometimes makeup just isn’t practical - especially when it comes to gaudy colours/glitter/face tattoos!
Teamed with a slick of eyeliner, this can never really look dated. Best other beauty buys? A neutral lipgloss, bronzer, eyebrow pencil and white eyeliner all top my list - these all help to create a fresh, dewy look, which is perfect for everyday wear while not looking like you’ve put too much effort, which is always important too. Effortless classic chic - perfect for teaming with your minimal Celine trench come Winter.
Slant Powder Brush
Everyone has at least a few classics that they have in their make-up bag - the smart necessities that will always give you a glamorous glow when your in a rush. I always opt for a slick of mascara and a quick eyebrow pencilling - if in need of a quick sprucing.
Foundation is key - getting that glow right can make or break (sometimes out) how your complexion looks. Experiment with different types - liquid, mineral, powder - you name it, I’ve tried it - and find out what works best for you. Mascara and Liquid eyeliner are two of my other top essentials - I like to go for a bold black mascara, even when I know I shouldn’t, I love dramatic eyes.
Classic minimalism was what was on the cards for Autumn/Winter - but does your make-up bag reflect season trends, or classics? Are you a mascara and lipgloss girl? Or a brow gel and purple lashes lady?
