I'm doing a mini series of 'What's In Your Makeup Bag?', currently featuring members of my fam. This time around it's time to take a sneaky peak into my mother's makeup bag and what she thinks of the products she uses the most.
Foundation: I am currently using the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer which is easy to apply plus has SPF 20 and lasts on my skin quite well even in the warmer weather up as it feels very light on your skin.
Mascara: Lancôme Hypnôse Drama is a new one for me that I am trying out. I find that it is easy to put on especially after using the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers and it just needs a couple of strokes. No need to reapply throughout the day as it stays put (I find some mascaras go flaky and have some fall down).
Eyeliner: Despite some packaging flaws the Lancôme Le Stylo in 'Cafe Noir' is one of my favorites because it is creamy and nice to apply.
Blush: I picked up Chanel Joue Contrast in 'Frivole' almost a year ago now and I'm just trying to use it up. It's ok and the color is pretty but it has a strange consistency and it tends to end up slipping and sliding so it has either completely disappeared by the end of the day or it goes a little blotchy.
Eyeshadow: The shade 'Hustle' from the original Urban Decay Naked Palette is my go to shade at the moment - a warm everyday natural shade. I like the Naked Palette on a whole because the colours are very wearable and last well, I like all the matte ones but find it difficult not to wear hustle all the time! I even like the brush in the set.
Primer: I couldn't live without the Urban Decay Primer Potion because it is the only thing that stops my eyeshadows from creasing.
Eyebrow Pencil: Anastasia Brow Wiz in 'Brunette', not sure why this is better than most, perhaps the fine nib and it's less creamy than some so it's more precise to apply and less smudgy.
Concealer: I am currently using the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in 'Vanilla', however I am not really a fan of concealers because I find they sit in any pores or lines that I have.
Lips: I love the RMS Lip Shine in 'Bloom' because it feels rich and moisturizing without any stickiness.
