I received this gorgeous Ted Baker Make Up bag for Christmas. It’s baby pink with rose gold detailing. And although it looks quite small, it fits all this in and more! It’s a great handbag make up bag.

So onto what’s in the bag! 
Tweezerman tweezers in pink. I love these tweezers. Before buying them I thought that they would be no different than your bog stand tweezers. But I was wrong. They are definitely are a lot better and more precise. I’ve found with some tweezers that they lose their sharpness after a while and end up being useless. I haven’t had that problem with this pair and I’ve had them a while now. They are a little pricey though. But hey, if you fancy getting a decent pair that will last you a long time they are worth investing in.

Next up, is my foundation – YSL Touche Eclat. I like this foundation as I feel it’s a good colour match. I’m quite pale so sometimes even the lighter shades of foundation end up looking yellow and generally not a great match. So I was happy when I tried this out and it was all good. (Especially seen as I ordered this online!) I have really dry skin too, so sometimes foundation can dry it out even more and end up looking flaky on my skin. Again, this is not a problem with this foundation so if you have dry skin I would try this out. 

Then there’s my Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer. This stuff is definitely worth getting! It helps maintain your eyeshadow all day so you don’t end up with crease marks and so on. I use this primer with all my eyeshadows, not just my naked palette and it works well with all of them. 
Because you don’t need to use much, it lasts for a long time too which is always a bonus.

Onto my Charlotte Tilbury favourites!
I hate my eyebrows. So picking an eyebrow product that I can actually use and looks good is a challenge for me. So I decided to try out Charlotte Tilbury’s eyebrow pencil and its the best I’ve ever used.  It has 3 parts to it – pencil side, a brush and a highlight. I only really use the pencil side but the brush and highlight are good. 
Then there’s the CT concealer. The concealer I decided on is generally for under your eyes, so its not the greatest on blemishes. But I don’t mind this. I like how it has 2 sides – and eye cream and the eye concealer. The eye cream is lovely and moisturising. I would definitely recommend this if you have dark circles.
Finally the mascara! I love this mascara. I think it is definitely one I would buy over and over again. It doesn’t go clumpy and is really lengthening. Love love love it.

My alternative mascara is the Tarte mascara. I got this in a beauty box and I think its great. I still prefer the CT one as this one can go a little clumpy. But it is still a good mascara. 

Cheeks favourites – NARS Blush and Too Faced Bronzer. Again, both of these I received in a beauty box. (I think I’m slightly beauty box obsessed..) I like alternating between these two for a slightly different look, i.e. I use the NARS Blush for a more natural look and the Too Faced Bronzer for a slightly heavier make up look. 

 Finally, my old favourite. Good old faithful Stay Matte Powder by Rimmel. I’ve used this for years and I love it. It’s my go to powder. Its great for my skin, as although its matte it doesn’t dry it out and it doesn’t clump on my skin.
