My Night Away Makeup Bag

I know, I've gone missing. Again. Life is still pretty hectic for me at the moment and the blog is still the last thing on my 'To do" list. Sorry! I am trying to rectify this.

To get myself back in the swing of things I decided to do a nice easy post that I always enjoy reading on other blogs. I think it is because I am super nosy and love sneaking a look into other peoples makeup bags. So here is the makeup bag I took for a recent overnight trip.

For foundation I packed my HG (holy grail) - Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, it is my absolute favourite that I know will make my skin look flawless with minimal effort. The By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Concealer is a newer acquisition that seems to be pretty good at covering up my always present dark under eye circles. The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish is perfect for setting foundation and never cakes up on my skin. 

I am all about the highlight at the moment and the Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Highlighting Powder is my favourite for a more natural glow. For a healthy flush I packed the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Amused.

I knew I wouldn't have much time to get ready in the morning so I packed my favourite 'all over the lid' eyeshadow - Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Gri-Gri (I believe this was limited edition). Of course I applied this over the Nars Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base. For mascara I packed a sample size of the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara. This is great mascara for dark and voluminous lashes. For brows I packed the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz because uncared for brows should be a crime. 

I didn't realise until I took these photos that the two lipsticks I packed are actually very similar. The Tom Ford Lip Color in Jack and Chanel Rouge Coco in Jean are both purpley-pink shades that are oh so pretty on the lips. 

Finally the makeup bag I use is the Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Bag. I got it back when Charlotte's line first launched and I purchased one of her 'looks' sets. It is a great bag that fits heaps in it plus it is super cute. 

What is in your makeup bag?

PS: Apologies for the less than stellar photographs, natural light is just too hard to catch at the moment. 


  1. Nice choice of products - I enjoy these sorts of posts too! I'm eyeing off the By Terry concealer as something to try soonish, although I have a small backlog of concealers I want to get through first :)

    1. It is a really nice concealer, it has a very skincare-y feel to it which is great for my drier under eye area.

  2. You've got the most amazing make up!!! :)

    1. :) What can I say? I am powerless to resist its call!
