My Everyday Makeup Bag – Collab!

Today I’m doing a collab which is always exciting.  This post is in collaboration with Maleehah from Beauty Filled Blog.  She’s so lovely and an amazing blogger, you should all go check out her blog and follow her!  Her post is also going to be about what things she keeps in her makeup bag on a daily basis, so make sure to go check it out!

Anyway, today I’m bringing you a closer look into what I’m using at the moment makeup wise.  This changes so often, and since I took the pictures from this post I’ve started using a new concealer!  There are some products which will never change because they’re so perfect for everyday and I love to use them, like my powder and my mascara, but others are always subject to change.  I don’t wear too much makeup on a daily basis, considering I’m in school a lot of the time and on a morning a full blown makeup routine can take quite some time – plus, I much prefer sleep!  However, I do wear some every day and this is usually what it consists of!

First up we have suncream.  I’ll admit, I don’t do this every day, but when I do the one I would use is the ultrasun face.  It’s perfect for sitting under makeup, and it’s always really important to have a sun protection factor on your face to protect it; this one is factor 30.

Next up would be concealer.  Like most people, I have fallen in love with the collection lasting perfection concealer.  This one is amazing, and for such an inexpensive price the lasting time and coverage is amazing, not to mention the creamy formula.  I love this one so much, and even when I do change concealers I always end up back with this!

My mascara of choice is benefit’s roller lash, which by now you must know I adore.  I don’t know how many times I’ve raved about this mascara, but it works total magic. My eyelashes go from boring to curly and long and fluttery within minutes, and it lasts so well.  It doesn’t have a cheap, greasy formula that imprints onto your eyelids which I find so many other concealers do; this is so perfect for the hot days we’ve been having recently (can I just say THANK YOU ENGLAND!).

I always use a lip balm, and burt’s bees will forever hit the spot on that one.  My favourite one is the peppermint one.  It’s very revitalising and it makes my lipstick apply so smooth.  My lips are never chapped when I use this!

I always use the rimmel stay matte powder, which I’m sure everyone is familiar with by now.  This is the best, most affordable powder ever and it keeps me looking matte all day long.  Need I say more!

Highlight and blush are something that are essential pieces of my routine. Too faced do amazing blushes and I love this one in the shade love flush.  It’s creamy, long lasting and pigmented, plus, the packaging is adorable!  Too faced never fail to impress me when it comes to packaging.

For highlight, recently I’ve been loving Technics palette which I reviewed a while ago.  It’s nicely pigmented and while it doesn’t last for ages it does have a nice staying power.  Plus, it’s a much more affordable option to the sleek solstice palette.

Because it’s getting more summery at the moment, I’ve been using my peach palette literally every day!  The too faced eyeshadow palettes are more than impressive, and if you want to see a full review on it you can click here!

Finally, I love using the too faced melted liquid lipsticks.  The shade chihuahua is my favourite, because it’s just so natural and easy to go with everything.  These feel so smooth and barely there when you have them on, but the colour payoff is amazing.

Hope you enjoyed taking a closer look into what products I use on a daily basis.  Make sure to check out Maleehah’s post too!  Also, just as a warning I have my year ten exams coming up soon and revision is killing me so I might not be posting twice a week, but I’ll aim for once a week either on a saturday or a wednesday.  I would love to do a post on revision to help some of you out, so if you’d like to see that make sure to leave a comment!
