What's in my Makeup Bag!? Lola Beauty

Hi Lovelies
I was inspired to do this quick post because I was recently was sent a makeup bag by Beat Bag and also just to have a break from the usual reviewing products as I share so many, sometimes I often forget to re-share what my favourite products actually are so I thought why not do a 'What's in my Makeup Bag! aka beauty products I use on a daily basis!

Firstly my go-to eye products are usually a combo of the Too Faced- 'Better Than Sex' Mascara and/or Benefit- 'Roller Lash' mascara, these to are my holy grails, I won't leave the house without mascara!
Next 'Ka Brow' by Benefit has been the only brow product I've used since I got it! It's so quick and easy to apply plus number 3 is the perfect shade to match my eyebrows.
Now and then I switch up my eyeshadow palettes but recently I've been using  the Tartelette In Bloom Eye Shadow Palette, it has a nice combo of neutrals and the most stunning gold glitter shade I'm always applying on my lids but before I apply all that eyeshadow I first go in with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, I can't do my eyeshadow anymore with out priming my lids first!

I also have my powder products on rotation but at the moment I've been reaching for the amazing new 'Hoola Lite' Bronzer by Benefit in winter I'm super pale and find it hard to get a bronzer that doesn't look to intense, I like that Hoola Lite is very subtle and builtable for my skin tone and to add a bit more colour to my face I've been using 'Dandelion Blush' also by Benefit, it gives your cheeks the perfect subtle baby pink pop of colour.
Lastly I can't do my makeup without highlighter and I've recently purchased the new Too Faced Love Light Highlighters and 'Ray Of Light' would have to be my favourite at the moment, you can't go wrong with a rose gold highlight!

My base normally consist of a foundation that is light to medium coverage but I've recently gone and purchased the M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid that is full coverage, I've always wanted to try this foundation and test it out to see whether its worth stocking in my makeup kit, so expect a review on this one soon!
Concealer is a must when I get those annoying break outs. The Too Faced 'Born This Way' Concealer isn't my favourite but it still does a good job, plus its the only concealer I haven't run out of, hence why it's made it's way into my makeup bag!
For powder I switch up between a translucent setting powder and pressed powder after applying my foundation and I've been using the Lasting Perfection- Setting Powder by Collection that does a pretty good good at a natural finish.
It is definitely a crime not to prime! I can't put on foundation without a primer and my newest purchase is the Marc Jacobs- 'Invisible Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer and it smells delicious. I'd compare it to being quite similar to the Hourglass Veil primer.
To finish off I lastly use a setting spray and M.A.C 'Fix Plus' in the scent Rose has been my go to.

Now there are so many different makeup brushes I like to use and these are normally the Face Brushes I pick up- a highlighter fan brush (Beauty Bliss), bronzer or contour brush ( Morphe), blush brush (pink- Real Techniques) another highlighter tulip brush ( XO Beauty) and powder brush (gold- Real Techniques).

Also my go-to eye brushes- pencil brush (pink) for inner corner highlight, flat shader brush (silver) for lids or outer 'v', next three are all crease/blending brushes (Zoeva and XO Beauty) and lastly a spooley for brushing brows and brow product.

I almost always carry a M.A.C lipstick on me and nude shades are my faves! I've been loving this combo at the moment the Marc Jacobs lipgloss in 'Sugar Sugar' and the M.A.C 'Honey Love' lipstick!

My base would be nothing if it wasn't for my skin care routine, I like to prep my skin with either a moisturiser or beauty serum lately i've been trying out the new Farsali-'24K Rose Gold Elixir', I've recently review it if you'd like to know more here.
Sometimes I add a bit of M.A.C Strobe Cream to my cheekbones or on the bridge of my nose for dewy looking skin.
The newest product to my skin care routine has been eye cream! I either use Benefit's 'It's Potent' or Avene's 'Soothing-Eye Contour Cream'.
My lips are almost always dry and the Kiehl's Balm #1 has been a life saver and its a yummy Cranberry flavour!

Lastly I sometime have perfume with me, especially if I have a mini or travel size bottle. Viktor & Rolf perfumes are my absolute faves the original BonBon and Bonbon Spring Summer!
