What’s in my make up bag?

B5As a self proclaimed beauty junkie, there is a constant rotation of products in my make up. But, once I find an item I truly love, I’ll use to it for years. I’ve rounded up some of my favourite products that are standing the test of time in my beauty bag.


Dior Air Foundation
I’ve been using Dior foundation for over 5 years. When they launched ‘Nude Air’ foundation I was instantly hooked. Next time you’re in Sephora, I highly recommend testing it out. The consistency is incredibly light, but still provides a lot coverage.

NARS Soft Velvet Loose Powder
NARS loose powder is one of my make up bag staples. The powder is super lightweight, controls oil, and blurs the appearance of fine lines and pores. A light powdering (I use the shade ‘Eden’) ensures my make up lasts throughout the day.

Dior Fix It
I received this Dior Fix it stick in the gift bag at the Creme de la Creme wedding show. I loved it so much I’ve since bought another one. It’s a two in one product that primes and conceals, and you can use on your lips, eyes and face. I always have it in my purse for quick touch ups throughout the day.

Laura Mercier Creme Hydrate
This was another gift bag item from Nordstrom that I love. It’s a sheer, lightweight formula provides a hint of colour you can use in place of foundation for a natural finish. Ideal for weekend wear.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow
This light weight cream gives your skin the perfect glow. It diffusers the light and re-emits it as skin luminosity to disguise and transform sleep-deprived skin. I wear it under my foundation or just alone when I’m not wearing any other make up, but want a little natural looking skin glow.

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow
Another make up staple, Charlotte Tilbury’s duo palette features a bronzer and shimmer in a beautiful rose gold palette. The blend of pearl and pigment is ideal for contouring and gives your skin that sun-kissed glow.

Mereadesso Tinted Moisturizer
I’m a huge fan of Mereadesso Skincare, and they have recently launched their tinted moisturizer. It’s an all-in-one moisturizer, serum, primer, day cream and eye cream. It’s still made with 16 botanical extracts, 8 minerals and enzymes, and over 20 antioxidants from around the world. All those benefits are combined with a concealer that even outs your skin tone beautifully.

Stila Ink Pot
This little ink pot of eye liner come packaged with a cushion sponge soaked in lightweight, yet richly-pigmented liquid liner. You put your brush on the sponge like a calligraphy pen and draw across your lid in a slow, smooth, fluid motion. It’s long-wearing formula stays put, and the sponge makes application relatively easy.

NARS Lipstick + Lipgloss
My go to lipstick and lipgloss combination at the moment are by NARS. Their Dolce Vita Lipstick is a light, but long lasting. The beautifully sheer formula is infused with ingredients to improve the condition of the lips. The gloss is the perfect finishing touch.
