Guest Post - My Make Up Bag

Today's post is written by the lovely Zoe from The Beauty Shelf. She is going to be talking about her everyday make up items!

Hi, I'm Zoe and I write a little blog called the beauty shelf. Today I'm going to be showing you the contents of my make up bag and my everyday makeup.

The floral makeup bag I use is from Primark and has two compartments for storing things in. Its also waterproof, which is fab.

Two of the main foundations I use are Revlon Colorstay in Ivory and Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 01. The revlon foundation is a better match for my skintone but I like the semi glow finish of the estee lauder double wear light. They both offer good coverage but the estee lauder one is lighter.

My current powder is Rimmel Clear Complexion. I'm on the fence with this one as it adds a nice finish but it doesnt offer great oil control which is something my oily skin needs.

Two of my favourite concealers are the Dior Nudeskin and Lily Lolo Mineral concealer. I use Dior under my eyes and it covers dark cicles really well without looking cakey. The Lily Lolo is great for covering blemishes. I've repurchased it so many times, it truly is a brilliant concealer.

For cheeks, I use MAC's blush in stunner (limited edition). Its perfect for adding a natural flush. I also use MAC's extra dimension skinfinish in superb (limited edition). It adds a really nice peachy nude glow for dewy cheeks.

On eyebrows I use Smashbox Brow Tech. The dark shade is a good match for my brows but I'll probably look for something cheaper when it runs out.

On my eyes I also like to use MAC's paint pot in morning frost, a shimmery beige that brightens the eye area and is perfect for wearing day or night. I then use MAC extended play lash mascara to add volume and lengthen my lashes.

Big thank you to Becky for letting me post on her blog today!!
