What's inside my makeup bag?

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you what I keep in my makeup bag. Although I do love to keep all sorts of products on my dressing table to make sure I have everything at hand (I'm a bit of an organizational freak) I like to make sure I always have my essentials tucked away in my bag. 

Everyone knows I don't wear make up on a daily basis, but that doesn't mean situations don't arise throughout the day where I don't need to go from okay looking to very presentable in seconds. And if I ever need to grab something or even just make sure everything is in place, I know I can always rely on what I keep in my handbag.

Now, if you're anything like me, you keep alot of nothing in it. I've come to the conclusion that this is a real problem I have - I always think "I might need this", or "I might need that" (we never know, right?) so recently I've been trying to wear smaller handbags, and in turn, put less inside them too. Which means, smaller makeup bags and therefore, less products - just what I might really really need. These are essentially, my go-to products.

Of course, now that I've started blogging, I'll sway from these every now and again - I'll try a new BB Cream on weekends, or a new foundation, and even a new blush, but the majority of time, this is what I carry around with me. I'm pretty sure I'll be making more of these in the near future as I've been trying quite alot of things that I'm absolutely head over heels with.

My make up bag is the perfect size for what I'm trying to achieve - I'd find a link for you, but it was handmade by my lovely grandmother so it's not something that's available. 

Because I'm short on space, I like to make sure I keep things that don't really require other products if I decide to go for only one of them. For example, the BB Cream is moisturizing and works as a concealer as well, so I wouldn't need to have the have the concealer with me. But as that is a small product, I do, incase I only feel like touching up on certain spots or my under eyes. The only product I really make sure to have more of are lip products. Those three colours are pretty similar, and I've always been the pink or red type of girl, so I make sure to have one of each, plus a hydrating one, and I'm good to go.

I found those pretty adorable (and quite small) brushes in primark last year, along with the mirror, and they have come in handy so many times. I don't use them to apply make up, but if I ever need a retouch, they are pretty easy to carry around and most importantly, to use.

One thing I can't ever go without is a perfume and because I'm a fruity scents kind of gal, I've recently been loving the Eau de Toilette by Zara. The smell. Oh my god. I can't even describe to you. 

Do you use any of these products, or have any recommendations for me? Please do let me know, I love to find out more about you!
