What's in my makeup bag? :)

Want to know what's in my everyday makeup bag? 
Well what's in it stays pretty constant. Most of the products are holy grail items that I have used for a number of years and they work the best for me. However the bag changes it up considering on where I'm going or where the bags going (E.g in my bag or on display). The bag I'm using at the moment came in a set of three from Boots. This is the middle of the 3 bags. The big one is a see through plastic zip bag and the smallest has a retro woman in black and white on the front, but this one is my favourite as its just the right size and shape for all of my products and brushes to go in. This is the bag with the products in it.

Soap and Glory Makeup Bag - £ 14

These are the brushes that are typically in my bag. The top one is the MAC 187 duo fibre brush. I use this for applying my cream to powder foundation, using this is swirling motions to buff the foundation in. The bottom brush is the MAC 182 buffer brush. I keep this in my makeup bag to apply my blusher. I don't own a blusher brush yet. Some might think that I'm crazy trying to apply my blush with this kabuki but i find that since its domed, if i don't push the brush into the product to much, only the tip gets the product and it's OK to apply the product to the apples where i want it.

These brushes are 2-3 years old. Still in perfect condition.
The first thing i apply to my face is my primer. This is the Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer. They also do an apricot one which gives you a touch of colour, but with such a pale complexion I like to just use the clear one. If you would like to hear more about it I have a review. Click here.

20ml - £13.
This is the next thing i put on. The Benefit Porefessional primer fills in any deep pores you may have. I pat this onto where i need it. A little goes a long way.

22ml - £23.50

Then using my 187, i apply my foundation. This is the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation by Mac. My shade is NC20. If you would like to know more about how this works for my skin type, let me know by commenting at the end of this post or tweeting me at @edgeofbeauty7.

15g - £19.50.
This is the concealer that i use to cover anything else i need to after my foundation is applied. The one i find works best for the majority of thing is my Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC20.

5.5g - £13.50
I've recently found this concealer in the depths of my makeup and started to reuse it. I really like that it is a liquid consistency and can be blended differently to create a different type of coverage.

Maybelline New York Pure Cover Mineral Concealer - £6.19
This is my go to blush when i want something easy that goes with everything. This Mac blush is called Well Dressed. Many people claim that it doesn't show up on their skin and that it is hard to work with. However this product works beautifully for me. If you want to know more about how i apply it and what it looks like on my skin let me know by comment or by twitter - @edgeofbeauty7.

6g - £17
I use this Benefit Eye Bright pencil in the tear ducts to brighten up my eyes and sometimes on the brow bone as a highlight there. Its a baby pink colour and is super soft and blendable.

2.27g - £14
Officially the best eyelash curlers i have used and I've used quite a few. This is the tweezerman version.

Metal eyelash curler - £14
This is the mascara in my bag at the moment. It's the newest mascara i own and I'm trying it out. A review will be coming up soon on it. The mascara i have just used up was the Makeup Forever Smokey Lash and it was amazing! Definitely something i would repurchase again.

9ml - £8.49
And finally my eyebrows. This is the pencil i like the best to fill them in. It is the perfect shade for my brows and stays all day. Plus its really cheap and lasts for ages.

Sleek Eyebrow Pen in Brown - £2.59
