What’s In My Makeup Bag?

in my makeup bag

I went to my Mum’s for the weekend and in a quiet little moment to myself, thought I’d film a “What’s in my Makeup Bag” video. I haven’t done one in ages and I wanted to show you some of my current essentials, though I am something of a creature of habit and so you’ll have seen lots of the items before! The MV Organic Skincare moisturiser for a start – I literally don’t go anywhere without it, now. It seems to work on my pregnancy skin as a kind of multi-purpose salve, soothing everything from the itchy rash that keeps coming up on my lower shins to the little red patch that appears on my chin at regular intervals. And you’ve seen me bashing on about the Chanel foundation loads now: it’s just marvellous. So easy to use, such a great matte-but-glowy finish. No need to powder and doesn’t cling to flaky bits.

The makeup brushes shown are all total gems: the new Real Techniques “Bold Metals” shadow brush, their handy Duo Fibre Brush (brilliant for applying cheek colour with a light touch) and the Zoeva foundation brush with dense, stumpy bristles that just seem to buff your base into the most perfect finish. Only the Bold Metals is new to me; the other two have been staple tools for a while, now. I can highly recommend any of them for foolproof makeup application – I really must do a brush video, I have been meaning to for ages!

Here’s the vid – if you can’t be bothered to watch (please do: I’ve managed to shoot it using the most unflattering angle possible, it’s quite something. I’ve instantly gained around eight pounds, just on my face) then all of the product links are detailed below.
