I'm someone who always buys backups of things that I either need or know that I really, really like and I think you either are a backup person or you're not. When it comes to cosmetics I have a spare makeup bag in my drawer where I keep all of my everyday essentials that I know I would wear all the time. You could also think of it as an emergency makeup bag, so if you had to suddenly pack a makeup bag with all your must haves, then this would be it. So let's begin!
Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder to keep your foundation in place so it doesn't slip off your face, especially with all this abnormally hot weather we've been having recently (UK peeps know that 30 degrees+ is not our normal summer temperature).
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer the most popular concealer in the world (well at least when it comes to the blogging and vlogging community). It covers all spots and blemishes, stays in place all day and is matte enough not to break you out but creamy enough to blend into your skin really well.
L'Oreal Paris Infalliable 24H Matte Foundation is the best foundation that I've found in a long, long time as it covers really well, blends in really easily and stays on for a long time, plus it has a matte finish so you never get that oily feeling you can get with wearing some other foundations. (full review here if you'd like to read more about it).
L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick in 235 Nude this is my go to nude lipstick. If I had to pick one to wear for the rest of my life it would be this one. It is a pinky nude with a very subtle hint of brown running through it which means it suits my skin tone very well, but I know it's a shade that will suit so many skin tones so I would recommend it to a lot of people.
Seventeen Mirror Shine Lipstick in Beehive I discovered this lipstick when I was on the hunt for a pale pink shade that would be great for everyday wear and I really love it. It's actually quite glossy for a lipstick which makes it different to other lipsticks I have in my collection. The one you see in the photo above I actually won with a blog giveaway along with a few other things, so I was soooo happy when I knew this was one of the prizes as I love this lipstick a lot.
Barry M Lip Boss Lip Gloss is a newer version of my favourite older Barry M lip gloss which was in the shade 2, this newever version is pretty much the same nude colour but the shade number is now 5 and I absolutely adore it. If you are looking for the perfect browny nude everyday lip gloss then this is it.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is the best mascara I've tried in ages as it gives loads of volume, curls your lashes and it makes your lashes look super long, almost like you are wearing slightly natural looking false lashes, it's amazing.
All the eyeliners so I have a few options to choose from. The black pencil eyeliner is one I got free from a magazine a while ago from Model CO, the brown pencil is a L'Oreal one and the black liquid liner is again from L'Oreal and it's without a doubt the easiest liquid eyeliner to use so I'm a big fan of that.
Let me know if any of you like to buy backups of their favourite makeup products, surely I can't be the only one haha.
Hope you enjoyed the post.
