Lately, I've had a few emails regarding the make-up I use, so I thought it was time for a long overdue delve into my make-up bag. This is just the make-up I take out with me each day for touch-ups and is probably only a small selection of my full collection. See below for links to most of the products.
I found this in the sale section of John Lewis and bought it as it reminded me of Bottega Veneta at a huge fraction of the cost
I've pretty much tried each and every one of the MAC foundations. They're all good, I stick with this brand purely for the huge range of shades they offer. Having pale skin, means it is very difficult to find an exact shade to match. This is my current favourite and is portable too
I was previously using the Chanel Automatic Liquid Eye-liner for a long time but decided to try something new. I like them both but I would say this stays on longer due to the thicker consistency but definitely needs more skill in the application
I use this through the day for the Fluidline instead of my usual brush as it is cleaner for my make-up bag
I have used this for so many years, I can't remember. As a highlighter, it takes away the pale harshness of a totally powdered face and adds a little depth
This is a fairly recent buy and I am definitely impressed enough to continue with it
My current favourite, I have many red lipsticks but this is definitely the best so far
So pretty and multi-purposeful, I discovered this many years ago when I visited a little-known apothecary in Haworth (Yorkshire, England), now they are stocked in Boots the Chemist
I am one who has a 'wardrobe' of perfumes but this is a scent I continue to return to and if I had to choose a scent as my signature it would be this, as I have been wearing it for so many years. Handy to have in solid format too for handbag touch-ups
I have been wearing a cheek tint, again for many years. It seems to be the only type of blusher that is natural enough to suit my pale skin. I was quite devastated when NARS discontinued their version and Benetint isn't a strong enough colour for me. I was delighted to find this very inexpensive version and I tend to stock up on many bottles at a time in fear of them discontinuing too!
This is very old, I'm not sure they even stock them anymore. But this is the perfect size to fit into my make-up bag and is a must for me as I can't bear to have tangled hair, so need to comb it a few times throughout the day
I stocked up on these the last time I was in New York, although I know you can get them all over now. Always handy to have for hair emergencies
