I work from home so don’t often need to carry makeup with me, but I have been out and about a little this past week and thought I’d show you what products I take with me. I tend not too re apply makeup but If I need to this is what i have with me in my makeup bag.
My Caudalie bag which once had these products in, makes a handy makeup bag, its transparent so I can see what I need and what I have with me and it’s the perfect size. I always have a hand sanatiser with me and I have been enjoying using the ones I bought from Bath & Body Works whilst in San Francisco. The one I am currently using is Island Nectar and it smells of summer. I have my Travelo with my beloved Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin perfume in, I love this perfume and it smells so fresh and the scent lingers all day.
Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter - This gives the lips a pretty touch of colour whilst keeping them hydrated. I like this colour and would describe it as a deep red rose, perfect Autumn colour. I want to buy more of these as I really like using this one. It’s so easy to apply and you don’t need a mirror and the colour is fresh and gives the lips a glossy shine.
No 7 BB Lips SPF15 Blink Pink – Another easy to wear lip balm, this doesn’t offer the same amount of colour as the Korres one but this is gives the lips a lovely glossy soft pink colour. I think it makes my lips look healthy and with SPF 15 in they are perfect when you need a little sun protection.
Rimmel Apocalips in Galaxy – This is going to be my Autumn go to colour. It’s a pretty plum with a lovely gloss finish. I have a few shades but this is my favourite and It lasts quite a long time on me & I find I don’t have to re apply it too often throughout the day. Very handy.
Benefit Boi ing Concealor in shade 02 – If I have a blemish or redness to cover this is what I reach for without fail so I have to take it with me when I am out and about. I tend to get a red chin for some reason & so like to have this on hand to touch up. This concealer is heavy-duty and if you warm it up in between your fingers it is easy to apply any blend.
Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara in 01 Wonder Black – How handy are these mini mascaras! They are so cute. This Clarins one is really black and gives my lashes length and doesn’t end up falling down my face as the day goes on. It’s a safe bet for a long day.
Pixi Lash Line Ink in Black Silk – This gives the most precise line and the nib is really easy to use. I like wearing eyeliner but quite often you don’t want to have a big cat flick and just want a subtle line – this Pixi Lash Line Ink is amazing for that! It isn’t waterproof but it still wears well and the colour stays deep black all day.
Having oily prone skin I always have to have my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent – this is just very effective at keeping my oil at bay and giving me peace of mind that I am not an oil slick! I apply it with my elf kabuki brush which is so good and budget friendly.
Last up is my Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream – This is a lovely hand cream and when I am using it on the go I just want some thing that absorbs fast I hate the feel of my hands being greasy. This one from Caudalie is perfect and keeps my hand soft and the scent is not overwhelming just fresh.
