My Weekly Makeup Bag



Weekly Makeup Bag #1

Makeup Bag by Paul & Joe

Each Sunday I like to change around what’s in my makeup bag, this is so that I don’t use the same products over and over again. I have quite a large makeup collection and I would never use it all if I didn’t do this each week. I thought it might be a good idea to show you which products I use, I will do these posts every now and again (not every week as I suck at weekly routines…).

Last week was my first week back to work after the Christmas break so I wanted quick, easy to use products. I always apply a layer of Carmex Lip Balm* to my lips in the mornings to prep them for lip products and to keep them in good order. I chose the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in Ivory as my base as it offers a nice fresh, healthy look to the skin. I pair it with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to cover any pesky spots and the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder for any unwanted shine. I chose MAC blusher in Melba blush which is a neutral peach shade, perfect for natural yet healthy cheeks. On the eyes I went for the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze as a base, the Cargo Eye Liner in Minx for the lower lashline and my mascara duo of the moment: Clinique High Impact and Maybelline The Rocket waterproof. For my brows I used the products featured in my eyebrow routine post; the Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil in Dark Brown and Maybelline Brow Drama Mascara in Dark Brown. For my lips I picked the Collection Cream Puff in Fairy Cakes which is one of my favourite lip products of life.

This collection of product worked really well over the week and I used them all, I will be swapping out the foundation for something with a bit more coverage for this week though as lots of spots popped up over the weekend – argh!

What’s in your makeup bag this week?
