What’s in your make-up bag?

make-up bag

I tend to wear a mixture of high-end and everyday brands.  I’m yet to find a foundation that matches my pale skin tone as well as Max Factor’s Creamy Ivory shade which I’ve been using for years.  The coverage is pretty good going on, however it does have a tendency to slide off my face by the end of a night dining al fresco out here!

I find the Max Factor Facefinity Compact Foundation works well as a top-up during the day as it works as a powder and helps to touch up my foundation at the same time.  Mac’s Bronzing Powder in Golden is an old favourite and I’m yet to find a better liquid eyeliner than Chanel’s which is so easy to apply and takes the effort out of the precision needed for the sweep and flick.  I’m big on applying plenty of mascara and find Chanel’s Le Volume version is great for volume without clumps.

I’m trying to get more into lipsticks, particularly for everyday wear, but I tend to get overwhelmed at the amount of colours available and struggle to know what suits me.  However, if I’m going somewhere extra special I love the classic red colour of Mac’s Matte Russian Red lippy.

Last, but by no means least, an Aussie friend introduced me to Lucas’ Papaw Ointment and I’ve never looked back!  It’s great for chapped lips, adds a lovely sheen and smells delicious too!  It’s available on Amazon for all non-Aussies like me.  A quick to dab on to complete my look and I’m good to go in the morning!
