What's In My Makeup Bag

I've had a bit of a declutter of my beauty storage recently and therefore my everyday makeup bag has had a rejig too. I've got lots of new products to try and putting them to the test is easier if they're easier to reach for if it's in this adorable cat makeup bag (similar on here). 

Now that it's very nearly Autumn, my makeup bag has changed quite a fair bit as I've switched my lightweight, barely there bases for a medium, buildable coverage as this is what I prefer when the weather gets cooler. The Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation* are two of my top picks as the former offers a glowing, flawless base and the latter delivers a heavier coverage, yet still looks natural on the complexion. 

I've been trying out the new Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer* still as I've got a new found love for concealers and I've been trying a fair few out. It's definitely heavier than I thought it would be as I had in my head a super lightweight, almost watery consistency, but it still doesn't cake up despite offering quite a fair bit of a coverage. 

Bronzer is something I've got more attached to as the years have gone on and now I feel bare if I don't wear it. I've been meaning to try out a new one for a while, so when I was kindly gifted the Nars Laguna* I was super happy. Fun fact, but I've never been keen on this bronzer because every time I swatched it in store, it was always super glittery with a pink sheen, but now I've realised it was because people would try out the blushers before dipping their fingers in the bronzer, alternating the way the shade looked. Now I've been trying out Laguna for a week or so, I can already see the hype as it looks lovely on my complexion, adding warmth in all the right places and I find it looks super natural too. 

Of course, I've been using my go-to Autumn shade, the Hourglass Euphoric Fusion Blusher*. It's not too overpowering, but is still great for adding a slight colour to my cheeks. I finish this look off with a dusting of my Pixi Glow-y Gossamer Highlighter Duo* which gives a healthy dose of sheen to the cheekbones.  

As my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz* is on it's way out, I've switched it over the new Dipbrow Pomade* to replace it. I was hesitant I wasn't going to like it as much as I used to at first as it's definitely heavier, but with a light hand and a bit of practice, I got the hand of it again and my new shade match is definitely perfect for me. I'm currently using up a variety of my mascaras as most of them are coming to an end, so I'm on a look out for any recommendations you may have. 

To finish, I've been applying the By Terry Mini Baume de Rose* because as we're going into the colder seasons and as illness has taken it's toll on my lips, the thickness of the formula keeps my lips feeling nourished. 

What's in your makeup bag at the moment?
