The Over Night Makeup Bag

18:26 Sarah McDonald 0 Comments





When I stay at my boyfriends or a friends house for a few days, I don't like to take a huge selection of products. As much as i love make up, I also like to be able to find things in my bag.
In addition, i don't always necessarily wear make up, so I only take the basics with me. A girl likes to be prepared. These are the products currently in my over night make up bag. 

Okay so lets talk about that base. First of all is a sample of Estee Lauders Matte Perfecting Primer. I got this when I purchased one of their products. As it is Summer down here, I like to have a matte primer so that I don't end up looking like a shiny disco ball. This provides me with that perfect matte finish. I also have the Lorac's Behind the scenes Eye primer, because eye primer is important guys.

As aforementioned, it's Summer here. For Summer I prefer a lighter coverage, something that will not be too heavy on the skin. Garnier's BB cream in light is perfect for exactly that. To apply that I use the Nude By Nature Duo Fibre Flat Headed brush. Next I have the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in light pale. What a mouthful! I love this for brightening up those dark circles and brightening up the face. To set my make up I use the Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder in translucent with the powder side of the Chi Chi Double Ended Powder and Foundation Brush to set my make up.

For the eyes, I have the Max Factor Colour Perfection eyeliner in Brown 30 to line my top lash line,  just to add a bit of definition. Eyeshadow wise, the only item in here is the Covergirl Flamed Out Eyeshadow Pencil in Melted Caramel. These are bloody perfect and you can get away without blending with this shade if you'd like. Mascara wise, I have Covergirl's Lash Blast Length, which I love. If you like long lashes than you should try this.

To give myself some cheek bones, I chose Mac's blush in Harmony, which I use with the Real Techniques Contour Brush. This can also double as a blush if I feel like it. Urban Decays Naked Flushed Palette in Streak is also in my make up bag. Particularly for the highlighter and blush, however if I didn't want to use Harmony to contour than I could use the bronzer from that palette. So I do have a bit of versatility in terms of blush and contour. Last but not least I have Estee Lauder's Rouge Collection lipstick in dynamic. I cannot tell you how much I love this colour. It's like a slightly darker more muted down pink. That may be a horrible description, I suck at describing colours, but it is perfect and I am in love.

So that's what's in my overnight make up bag. Let me know your thoughts on the products mentioned and let me know what is in your overnight make up bag!
