Hello my lovelies!
I am rather partial to seeing what other people have in their make-up bags (I can't help it, I'm nosy!) so I thought I'd jump aboard the bandwagon and reveal my daily products! These are the items I have been using every day this month and they're what I take with me on my regular trips to Essex (sadly not home, but it's fast becoming my second home as it's where the future in-laws live!).
Notice the distinct lack of foundation? Sob...although it does make it easier to carry it all around.
Collection 2000 concealer is a must, and it starts off my make-up routine. I put it everywhere that needs it, so any blemishes and under-eye circles are covered up. Then I use By Terry Touche Veloutee under my eyes and maybe anywhere I feel needs highlighting. If I remember, I use the NYC powder to keep my concealer in place (does not work as well as foundation!)
Next I use Sleek Rose Gold on my cheeks (seriously pretty! Love the gold shimmer!), and, depending on my mood, a slick of Collection 2000 eye liner. If I can't be bothered with liner, I just curl my lashes and use loads of mascara and...done! Well, not exactly.
I like to think of this as my "low-maintenance" look and I'm usually happy with it just after applying, but give it a few minutes and I'll start getting all self-conscious about my skin again! So, to remedy this, I pop on a bit of lippie, either the Max Factor pen, or Barry M 145 if I want a brighter look, and this takes my mind off my awful skin.
It's weird seeing how little I use now (although it's probably a lot compared to some people) because my regular make-up bag is...well, massive, hence this post title. The other make-up bag does have to carry foundation and eyeshadows around too (because a girl has to experiment right?) so when I've finished No-Foundation-February I can show you what my normal routine entails!
