I am so sorry for the missing post and this late post!! Its half term and I’ve also not been 100%.. I’ve finally pulled my finger out and I’m back to it! Todays post is a bit of a different one. It’s something I do when it’s 3am and I can’t sleep. I’ll pull out my iPhone and I plan my dream make up bag. Just a set of items for an everyday look. The really expensive stuff I would have to save up for years for or win the lottery for!!
Foundation- After watching nearly every beauty guru on YouTube for many years I settled on the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. Obviously I don’t know which colour but I would for sure do it properly and get matched. This is about the £30 mark but I can imagine it’s for sure worth it!
Concealer- This was a tricky one. I will forever love my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer but after a bit of searching I found the luxe alternative.. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. Again I’d be matched professionally for this. This is about £17 so really is a cheaper Luxe product compared to others. Don’t get me wrong its still luxurious!
Powder- This was easy for me. I have watched Pixiwoo use this a lot and I drool every time. Clinique Blended Face Powder won hands down! Its about £23 so not totally blowing the budget!
Blush- Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Finish. I don’t even need to big this up. Find a video of someone using any of the Hourglass blushes and you’ll understand! I found this for about £28!
Bronzer and Highlighter- This particular product is possibly one of the most sort out products in the beauty world ever! It’s the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and glow. It combines the highlighter and sculpting bronzer in one beautiful compact. This is roughly £49.. WOW!
Mascara- Another easy one for me. Its got to be Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes. I haven’t found this on a British site yet but its $21. FleurDeForce convinced me (with little force) to buy this!
Eyebrow products- As you may already know I am not one for taking any extra time with my brows so this was a hard one. I ended up choosing a product which was basically a more expensive version of my cheaper eyebrow mascara! I chose the Benefit Gimme Brow at £18.50.
Eye shadow- I am an eye shadow addict. I have far too many but I just can’t not pick them up. I had to choose a palette so I would have lots of choice on a daily basis. Urban Decay Naked 3 won. It was a toss up between 2 and 3. I’d be happy with either! This is £38ish.
Eyeliner- Again I was swayed by numerous YouTube beauty gurus! I am easily led but I think for this great product that’s ok. It’s the Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and the Smudge Stick at £13 each.
Eye Shadow Primer- Doubled up on brands which I didn’t want to do but I couldn’t not match the eye shadow with the primer! The Urban Decay Eye Shadow Potion Primer at £16.
Setting Spray- I was trying not to double up on brands let alone triple it but this, as well as the eye shadow primer is a cult classic.. And well deserved classics! The Urban Decay All Nighter Make Up Setting Spray at £21!
Primer- Illamasqua was one of the first brands I ever really followed every single collection of. It for me was the most luxurious brand going! I had to honour them in some way for helping me love make up like I do so I decided to include the Hydra Veil. Another amazing product any great make up artist is bound to recommend! This is £30!
Lipstick- A product I have drooled over forever Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in Pink in Confidence from £26 (ouch)
Lip Gloss- My mum purchased this and I’d sneak wear it when I was about 19 haha! It’s Estée Lauder Pure Color Gloss from £18.50.
For brushes I would have all of the Real Techniques Bold Metals! I will forever love them. And eyelash curlers I’d choose Shu Uemura ones at about £20. And after months of searching I found the perfect make up bag only it to be out of stock and never ever return! It was the Paul and Joe make up Filofax! Please someone help me find it!
I appreciate not all of these products cost the world but for me they are my dream. Let me know your dream make up bag!! Thanks for your time.
