What's in my makeup bag | February 2015

Hi everyone,
So today I am going to share what is in my makeup bag.

My makeup bag is from Ted Baker. I'm sorry if you can't find this since Ted Baker change their stock very often but I got this for Christmas and I love it so much.

I am going to go in the order I do my makeup in.
My face products that I keep in my makeup bag are a primer, three concealers, translucent powder and a natural blush. I don't wear foundation since I am only 12 and I feel like it is too much to wear for everyday use.
The primer I keep in my makeup bag is the MUA pro-base primer. This is the only primer I have tried. I love the formula and texture of this product and its great for every day.
It might be weird but I have three concealers in my makeup bag.
 Since I don't wear foundation, I like to experiment with concealers and these three are my favorites. The Collection lasting perfection is a staple for me, it is probably my favorite concealer, I have done a review on this already which I will link at the bottom of this post. The second concealer is the Natural collection creamy concealer, I haven't heard much about natural collection as a brand, but I think it is a great brand for people who are on a budget. The final concealer I keep in my makeup bag is the Maybelline cover stick, I like using this on my eyelid to cancel out the veins on my eyelid if I'm not wearing eye shadow.
The powder I keep in my makeup bag is the MUA matte perfect loose powder. This is a nice powder I much prefer my rimmel one but it smashed so I need a new one but the MUA one does a nice job and it is worth the money.
For everyday use I like to use a natural blush and my favorite t use is the Natural collection blush in Peach Melba. This is really nice for everyday, it is very natural and pigmented.

 For eye shadow I keep my most recent palette in my makeup bag so I can use and experiment with it. 
My most recent palette is the W7 In the nude palette. This palette is gorgeous and is a great dupe for the naked 3 palette. As an eye shadow base I use the Maybelline 24hour colour tattoos in on and on bronze and permanent taupe. I love using these for a lazy day when I don't want to make a big effort. 

For eyeliner I use the
 MUA intense colour eyeliner in snow white and I use this for the inner corner and waterline. The black eyeliner I use is The Body Shop eye definer in smokey black, this is very pigmented and long lasting, it also looks great blended out.

The two mascaras I enjoy using are the Manhattan first style mascara. I love using this for a natural day since we are not meant to wear any makeup in school but this mascara does a great job. 
The second mascara I use is for a more dramatic look, it is the latest addition to my makeup collection and it is the Benefit Roller Lash. I am going to do a review on this mascara very soon so stay tuned.

I like to keep my eyebrows very natural but if I want to fill them in I would use the eyebrow cake from Asda, this is alright but I want a new brow powder from the drugstore so please leave recommendations in the comments. The daily product I use on my eyebrows is just a clear mascara and the one I use daily is also from Asda. It does a nice job.

The daily lip balm I have been loving is an EOS lip balm in Honeysuckle Honeydew. This is great for everyday and it keeps my lips hydrated. 
If I want to wear lip stick I would use the Revlon Lacquer in Demure since is is sheer and natural.

I keep a few random things in my makeup bag that aren't actually makeup.
The first one is this recon-tractable brush. I am really sorry but I have no idea were this is from since my mum gave this to me ages ago. I will sometimes use this to blend in my concealer. I do like this brush but I am saving up for some real techniques ones since they are better quality. The rest of my brushes are stored on my dressing table, so let me know if you would like me to do a separate blog post on my brushes. 
The final item I keep in my makeup bag is The Body Shop almond hand and nail cream. I always forget to moisturize my hands, so if I keep it in my makeup bag I will remember.

Collection Concealer review:
I really hope you enjoyed this blog post and don't forget to leave recommendations below since I would love to try out some new products. I am also stuck for blog post ideas so let me know what you want to see from me this month.
