My Makeup Bag...

I thought i'd share with you what I use on a day to day basis. As I have SO much makeup, i have had to whittle it down so I can actually carry things round with me! I have quite oily skin so this blog may help other people who suffer with oily skin as it is quite annoying when you look like you are sweating for no reason whatsoever! So here goes...


I used to use Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow but I found it difficult on myself to achieve the type of look I wanted. I went for a demo at Illamasqua and was introduced to Eyebrow Cake. It is a powder texture (almost like an eyeshadow). You draw out the shape of your eyebrow and fill the eyebrow in. I apply the Eyebrow Cake using an angled brush. Then using one drop of the 'Sealing Gel' (the mini black bottle) you mix this with the eyebrow cake and apply the product to the eyebrow to make it darker. I like the ombre look on my eyebrows so I apply this from the middle of my eyebrow to the tail of my eyebrow. This creates a faded look at the front which gradually gets darker towards the tail. I find these two products work better on myself so that is why I prefer these products to the Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow.


Throughout the day, I like to go for the natural look (sometimes this can mean no makeup at all if I simply can't be bothered) but if I actually want to make the effort, I apply Select Cover Up Concealer NW15 by Mac Cosmetics over my lid and under the brow bone which also defines the eyebrow more. Instead of 'sweeping' the concealer over the lid, I pat it on with a small foundation/concealer brush. This find this absorbs into the skin more, goes on evenly and sets better than if you were to 'sweep' it over the lid. Once this is applied, I use Laura Mercier Transulenct Powder and pat this all over the lid to avoid the eyelids from creasing.
