What's in my make-up bag??

My make-up bag is always full to the rafters and contains many of my 'staple' products. It always includes a couple of variations (eye products especially) as I'm always on the move whether it be to college or to work and I don't have time to be swapping or changing products. My make-up bag is just a cheapie from Primark and is the perfect size to fit in any of my handbags.


MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NW25, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, VIVO Compact Powder in Soft Vanilla, Real Techniques Stippling Brush, and a MAC 224.

These products are the staples of my everyday make-up. I don't really tend to switch up my foundation as the Studio Fix is my summer go-to as I am more tanned. 

Eyes and eyebrows:

VIVO Ultimate Brow and Eye Kit, Sephora Brow brush, VIVO Eye Liner in black, No7 Fanomenal Lashes 
in black, Natural Collection Liquid Eye Lines in black and MUA Heaven and Earth eyeshadow palette. 

I like to keep my options open when it comes to my eye make-up as I can never make my mind up whether I fancy a winged liner look or just a simple smokey eye. I don't carry my MUA palette around with me, but it always has a place next to my make-up bag so it can be easily grabbed. If I am wearing a neutral/shimmery eyeshadow that day, it will either be one from the palette or MAC All That Glitters which I just pop in. 


Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer in shade 51, MUA Blusher Shade 1, 17 Instant Glow Shimmer Brick, Marks and Spencer Sculpt & shade brush and a QVS blusher brush.

I usually go between the Chocolate Bronzer or Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer which has a gorgeous shimmer to it. I prefer the Bourjois bronzer for contouring and the other for  warming up my skin and giving it that sun-kissed glow. The MUA blusher was an impulse buy that only cost £1 but I cannot believe the quality of it! Brilliant pigmentation! I tend to use the highlighter on sunnier days (which are a rarity in Britain) as again it give a healthy glow to my cheekbones. 


Carmex Cherry lip balm, Estée Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Crystal Baby and No7 Perfect Lips Pencil in 20 Nude.

I tend to go through phases of different lipsticks depending on the colour and the rest of my make-up that day, so I just pop my choice in my bag - it differs from day to day. At the minute, I'm loving Crystal Baby which is a subtle, nudey pink. If I want a little more definition around my lips I softly draw around the edges with the No7 lip pencil.

Anyway, these are my favourite products that have the joy to live in my make-up bag. Nothing really drastically changes apart from my lipstick and eye products and maybe my blusher. Also it all depends on the weather! If it's sunny then I love to have a bronze smokey eye and a glowy face, but in the winter I love rosy cheeks and dark lips. 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Love, Juliette xo


  1. I'd love to see a review on the VIVO eyebrow kit - always on the lookout for a new one, much as I love the Sleek one I'm using at the mo it does have a horrible tendency to slide so I look like I have a monobrow!!x

  2. Well I've been giving it a try for the past couple of weeks so I think it's about time I reviewed it! It should be up later this afternoon :) xo

  3. i love all the items you have in your makeup bag. i love real tecniques brushes x


  4. I like these type of post, your make up bags cute. I've never tried a MAC foundation, but I'm curious to see what there like. Whats the coverage/ finish like with Studio Fix Fluid Foundation? :)

  5. I would say that it has a medium coverage on which you can build and is really good at covering any redness or blemishes. It is a matte finish so I like to use it as I have combination/oily skin so it really does help - it also leaves a very smooth finish on the skin and doesn't feel cakey. Hope this helped! :)
