Describe the items in your makeup bag.

Real Techniques Blush, Foundation and Powder Brushes, Studio London Eyebrow Brush and B. Fan Brush.

These are my current favourite lipsticks, so I reach for them most often; MAC: Doubleshot, Paramount and Twig. I am particularly fond of these shades because they’re relatively nude so I can wear them quite casually. To line them, my go-to liner is also by MAC: Bittersweet or No. 305 by Kiko Cosmetics

My eyebrows don’t usually need much work because unlike many girls, my problem is not that I have sparse eyebrows but the opposite. My eyebrows fill out very quickly. The pencil I use is a by Beauty Forever in shade 205 Dark Brown. The Urban Decay Self Adjusting Complexion Primer was part of a birthday gift I received this year in a bid to ditch Milk of Magnesia.

My sharpener is part of a gift set I got for Christmas last year. Black Opal True Colour in both liquid and stick. These are inexpensive and the stick is full coverage. MAC Studio Fix is a powder I've had for a long time but only recently started using. Kiko Definition Waterproof Eyeliner is the best eyeliner I've probably ever bought. Eyeliner is one of my favourite things to wear on my face and this is such a good buy.

MAC Raizin and Film Noir. Raizin is actually my most recent blush. I think every brownbeauty has this shade in their collection. I discovered Film Noir on my own, I really like the definition it gives to my cheeks without looking too gothic. Vivo which I sometimes use to highlight under my eyebrows too. 

LA Girl Pro Concealer is a good and affordable concealer. I usually use it to define my eyebrows but when I really want to glam up I wear it all over my face. Rimmel London Volume Flash Scandal Eyes - I hate taking off mascara. I rub my eyelashes too hard and often lose a few in the process, so I rarely wear mascara, but this in my bag for the occasional use. 

Which is your favourite item in your makeup bag?

I have a big smile so wearing lipstick that compliments my smile is an added bonus.

Where did you get your makeup bag?

My makeup bag is from Clarins. It came free with some products I bought in February this year.
