Describe the items in your make up bag. Karamel and Brown Glow Body Mousse, Palmers Cocoa Butter, Rimmel Provocalips Little Mink, Premae Skincare Balance Rescue Face Wash, Premae Skincare MM Foundation, Aloe Nourishing Serum, Iman Lip Tray, Rimmel London Wonderful Mascara with Argon Oil, Fashion Fair Lip Teaser Divine Pink and MAC Perfectly Poised Mineralize Skinfinish.

I’ve just recently started wearing makeup regularly for photo shoots and events for my work. After trying many different things I’ve settled on these products because collectively they help me create a natural polished look. It’s important that I look like myself. The Premae Foundation is wonderful and teamed with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish it gives my skin a healthy natural glow. Sometimes I use Karamel and Brown Body Glow when I want the same effect but don’t want a full face of make up, my ‘day’ look.

The best colour for my lips and complexion is pink, Fashion Fair Divine Pink Lip Teaser and the Iman Lip Tray Pink Palettes give my lips that pop of colour and goes well with my red hair. Keeping my skin healthy is important, once the makeup is off, Premae Balance Rescue Face Wash, with Aloe Nourishing Serum and Palmers Cocoa Butter keeps my skin healthy and smooth.

Which is your favourite item in your makeup bag? Fashion Fair Pink Lipgloss, makes my lips look fantastic with or without make up.

Where did you get your makeup bag from? I have actually never bought a makeup bag. I received this small H&M clutch bag as a gift and having been using it for my makeup recently.
