What’s In My Makeup Bag? Autumn 2017

luxury makeup bag contents

Are we still in Autumn? It feels decidedly wintery, but I’m hoping that I can still just about slot in a warm, russety-toned makeup video before everyone starts wrapping up in faux-fur stoles and sprinkling their faces with golden glitter.

Here’s what I’ve been using over and over again, all the way through Autumn. The things that have been stowed away – variously – in my handbag, on my bathroom shelf and in the passenger door of Mr AMR’s car. (I haven’t been doing much driving, but that is soon to change when we move to the MIDDLE OF NOWHERESVILLE.)

You can find a quick reference list of the products I’ve use below the video pane – otherwise, please press play!

    I was starved for one of your makeup videos. Nobody makes it seem as easy as you do. I watch your old videos when I get intimidated by everything else.

    Did Lisa Potter Dixon mention anything to you about the Gimme Brow recall? Apparently one of the recent batches has an ingredient that has been causing eye allergies. Granted, you apply it to your eyebrows, so it shouldn’t be coming in contact with your eyes anyway. I went and returned mine for a new one just to be safe.

    It is still autumn, despite the cold and the first snow flakes that appeared (and disappeared) over the weekend. Still time for rusty reds!

    Your article is a happy reading today. I’m looking for some winter skin care products, I think the next day will be all good!

    I love watching your videos but i must confess i only tried cleaning and skincare products for sensitive skins that you reviewed. Simply because though the makeup you try on always have gorgeous colours, they don’t suit my dark skin. I never heard of Liquid Gold before and you introduced me to it. So thank you!
