Alright Beauties, I need to admit to something. This is hard for me to admit to, I have really been in denial for a long time. But here it goes…
I own way too much makeup!
Okay, that was a little dramatic, but it is still true. I have been collecting makeup for many years now, and even though I do go through it every now and then and donate some of the products I don’t use, I also keep a lot in hopes that I will eventually use them one day. Because of this, I have decided that I want to start rotating items in and out of my ‘everyday’ makeup bag each month or so. I am hoping that this will get me to find some new favourites as well as rekindle the love I have for some of the older products I have in my collection.
Today’s blog post will not only give you a look inside my ‘everyday’ makeup bag but also a look into what I tend to take away with me when I don’t have loads of time to pack or space to put my makeup in. Just a small disclaimer, I don’t usually wear makeup on a day to day basis. If I am having an off day I might chuck on some concealer and mascara but that is usually it. However, I was away from home a bit this month and therefore wanted to make sure I had enough makeup to be able to apply a natural look or a more dramatic look, depending on where I was going.
Let’s get into my July makeup bag!
Stila One Step Correct – this helps to even out my skin tone and brighten my skin.
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Radiance Drops – this is a beautiful face oil that leaves my skin looking so radiant and glowy.
Foundation & Concealer
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation – my holy grail foundation! Simple as that.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer – I love using this alone to hide the fact that I have a shocking sleep schedule, it is also my perfect pale skin colour.
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer Mini – I love carrying this with me when I travel because I can use it alone just to makeup myself seem more awake, or I can use it with a full face of makeup to give a nice highlighted effect to the face.
Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow To Go Palette – who doesn’t love a handy little travel palette which contains an amazing highlight shade as well as a go-to contour shade. Added bonus that it takes up barely any room in my makeup bag!
Face of Australia Blush – I love this affordable blush, it blends super nicely on the skin and gives the perfect wash of colour.
Australis Fresh & Flawless Powder – this is one that will always be in my makeup bag, my all-time favourite setting powder!
Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer – my favourite bronzer shade for both pale and fake tanned days.
Eyes and Brows
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – as you can see, I keep 2 mascaras in my makeup bag at all times. This one is used for a more thicker and defined looking lash for days where I decide to wear some kind of eyeshadow.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – this product helps me on my lazy days when I don’t want a super defined and bold brow look.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo – I love using this product when I am wearing more of a dramatic eye look, it still keeps my brows looking natural, but adds more depth and definition then a pencil would.
Tarte Maneater Palette – this is a small, yet sturdy eyeshadow palette that allows you to make a natural look or a more dramatic look depending on what you are going for.
Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara – I love this mascara for my more ‘everyday’ natural looks as it isn’t too thick on the lashes but it still adds length and definition.
Finishing It All Up
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – I love how this setting spray melts all the face products into one and makes everything sit nicely on the skin, as well as keeps everything put until you are ready to take it off.
You are probably wondering, Emma, where are the lip products? Well, I always carry a lip balm in my handbag. And as for lipstick, I will chuck in whatever lipstick colour I am feeling for the night, and let’s be honest, it is almost always a nude shade.

That’s all for now Beauties!
