Currently In My Makeup Bag...

With a new season comes a fresh new makeup bag and so I thought I would share some products I think are perfect for spring.

LA Girl Pro Conceal Concealer
I recently pulled this concealer back out of my draw to give in another shot. At first it did not impress me too much because it was quite average but I am now loving it. It is a medium coverage and the shade is super pale and great for highlighting. I like to use this both with and without foundation because it is super lightweight which I love for the spring season we are coming into.

Makeup Revolution Blush Palette in Blush Goddess
This palette is beautiful, I did a review on it a while ago which I will link here, but it is so affordable and it is just great. The powder themselves are very powdery which you can decide whether you can manage it or not but the pigment is great, they blend well and they are super universal. The blush shades range from pinks to peach and they are all matte which is what I love in a blush. The highlighters range from something natural to something super intense, some with pink reflects and some with yellow reflects.
Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit
This is a current favourite of mine, it is very similar to my Seveteen contour kit. It comes with two matte contour shades and a matte highlighting shade. One of the contour shades is warmer that the other, which I would use for bronzing and the other one has a cooler tone which I would use to contour. At the moment I have just been mixing the two shades and applying it as a bronzer. It is not too pigmented which is surprisingly nice because it is harder to go too heavy handed. I particularly love the way it looks, it is not patchy and it blends like a dream. The highlighting powder is not my favourite because it is very powdery but it is not too drying and has a fair amount of pigment to hep brighten.
Mac In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara
I am so in love with this mascara. It is only a sample size but I have been trying it out for the past few weeks and it is lovely. I love how black the formula is and the wand reminds me a lot of the They're Real which I love. Plastic applicators are not my favourite but this lengthens and adds volumes my lashes but it is different from all of the rest because it holds my curl a lot longer then some of my other mascaras.
Freedom Duo Brow Powder in Soft Brown
Currently I have been a little lazy with my eyebrows and so I find powder a little easier and quicker to use rather than my pomade. This duo brow powder is lovely, it is pigmented and blends beautifully, giving my eyebrows a super natural but bold finish. I like how versatile the product is because you can use the lighter shade to make your brows more natural and lighter or use the darker shade for a super full and intense brow. I am pretty sure this costs under £5 which is insane so I would definitely recommend it.
Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss in Rose & Shine
I have always been a gloss girl but at the moment I am loving a pale glossy lip. The Soap and Glory lip gloss formula is beautiful. It is sticky and gives your lips that super strong tingly feeling but it does the job like no other. The finish of the gloss is a super wet lip look which I love in a gloss. The shade is a pale pink which is pigmented enough to enhance the size of your lips but not so pale that it gives you concealer lips.

What is in your April makeup bag?

  4. I was not a fan of LA Girl Pro Conceal Concealer when I first started using it. But not after a few try, I start to like the concealer.
