Whats in my make up bag - January 2014 // You remind me of the babe.

Now I'll be the first to admit I have far too many make up bags, however I didn't have one with my favourite scene from my favourite film on it ... until now! I found this offer on Reddit actually, which definitely isn't the usual place to find beauty bargains. The offer was from and you could pick any image you liked and have it printed on to a make up bag and shipped to your door for for a fab 99p! 
I don't know how many of you will actually recognise this film, so for those of you who don't its 'Labyrinth' which is a fantasy musical puppet film (I don't even know how to explain it) featuring the AMAZING David Bowie who also wrote and sang the entire soundtrack (and wears exceptionally tight trousers). It's just a brilliant film and for those of you who have children, it's very child friendly and my sister and me absolutely loved it when we were little. 
Whilst I was showing you my make up bag I thought I'd kill two birds and show you what I keep inside it on a daily basis. I'm thinking about posting one of these every month to show you guys what I'm using, kind of like a favourites post.
Onto the actual post anyway, goodness I ramble! 

Apologies for the swipe marks on my desk, I had just cleaned it :)


1// Barbara Daly Blusher Brush  2// The Vintage Cosmetic Company Powder Brush*  3// Real Techniques Stippling Brush  4// Unbranded Eyeshadow Brush
I have a LOT more brushes than these four but these are the ones that come with me on a day to day basis. The stippling brush is brilliant for if you're out and about and need to touch up your foundation as it means there's no need to get your fingers full of foundation. The powder brush is also a life saver for when Its a hot day and I need to mattify my face.


1// Sleek Blush in Rose Gold  2// Collection 2000 Pressed Powder in Ivory  3// Technic High Lights  4// MUA Undress Your Skin Foundation  5// Collection 2000 Concealer  6// Laura Mercier Primer
It was kind of hard to decide which products to feature in this part of the post as I change my face make up round a lot. I have 3 or so foundations that I like to switch around and a few highlighters that I use on a regular basis, but I chose these ones as they are probably the ones reach for the most when doing an 'everyday' look (e.g what I'd wear to uni). 
I bought the MUA foundation kind of on a whim and I have to say it's one of the best foundations I've ever used, and I'm not sure if I want to repurchase my beloved Barbara Daly foundation after using this one!


1// HD Brows Palette in Foxy  2// H&M Nudes Palette  3// Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara  4// Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
These are my go to eye products, especially if I'm in a rush. I love the H&M palette and tend to use the darkest shade the most as it has a lovely shimmer running through it and is very highly pigmented unlike a couple of the lighter shades. 
The HD Brows palette is just a life saver, I was actually sent this as part of a Christmas swap I did with another lovely blogger, and my goodness I don't know how I've ever lived without it ;) (just kidding) but it has really transformed my brows and makes them so much easier to do in a morning.


1// Maybelline Babylips in Peach Kiss  2// Collection 200 Cream Puff in Cotton Candy
I own endless lip products but I tend to buy really bold shades that I only really wear during the night time, if I'm going out. So when it comes to choosing a daytime lip product, 90% of the time I'll just stick with a lip balm which has a little bit of a tint. However I've recently discovered the Collection 200 Cream Puffs which are like a matte lip cream, and this is quickly becoming my everyday lip colour. It's a very light pink so it's not too loud and because it's matte it stays on your lips for a very long time, which is exactly what I need!

Well that's everything! Any comments on whether you liked/didn't like this post would be really appreciated!
I would also love to see what's inside your make up bag, so please link me if you've done a similar post
