What's In My Makeup Bag?

My makeup bag is my greatest lifeline, a necessary kit of essentials to throw in my handbag knowing that I'm sorted. But recently, it's become cluttered. I'm a makeup bag hoarder and if it just about fits I keep it in. It's not my fault! There's your all time favourites of course, the new products that you're testing, the almost empties and the this-one-will-do-for-now products. I guess I just like too much pretty stuff.




Once upon a time, I kept all my makeup in my large desk drawer. It was always neatly organised and made it easy to see everything but, I really underestimated carrying a makeup bag. Not only does it stop my products rolling around in the bottom of my handbag, it saves time when you're rushing off to town or school. After I finally found the correct size, shape, colour and style of cosmetic bag, my morning makeup routine became swifter and simpler. My bag is not very designer at all, it's actually from Primark but it is sweet and roomy and all I could ever really want. The size is absolutely perfect. I can fit in all my every day face stuff (without having to cram it all in) and last minute bits and bobs I might need on a random occasion. 



So, at last, here is a short list of what I have been keeping in this TARDIS I call my makeup bag:
