What is in your beauty bag?? Now don’t get this confused with skin care (cos there is no way all that product would fit in a beauty bag at all) as that will be a whole other blog, but these are my fav things I use daily and wanted to share the love!!
Mascara – my number one beauty essential is my mascara, I am not overly picky on my mascara as long as it’s as black as it comes and add a bit of thickness to my lashes. If I leave the house without it, I look like l am on death bed!!!
Lipstick – I have quite a few colours and brands on which I choose from depending on occasion, my EVERYDAY and go to fav would have to be my Luk lipstick (I cannot fault this and will be guttered when it runs out) for special occasions and nights out (which doesn’t happen all that often) I love the stepping out of my comfort zone form dark reds to brown tones!
Lip balm – especially in this winter season to cooler weather I cannot be without thus beautiful papaya balm from Pure Papaya Care!!
Loose Powder Foundation – I love a loose mineral powder for ran everyday look. It is so easy to apply and gives me amazing coverage for the whole day whilst giving me some SPF protection (which I am mad about). I am loving the Antipodes mineral foundation as it leaves my skin looking dewy all day with excellent coverage for the days my redness would usually appear.
Bio Oil – Especially with this cool winter weather my skin has been sucking it up like crazy. Mind you I used this through all 3 of my pregnancies so Bio Oil is definitely not a stranger in my beauty bag.
Hair Styler – this has been a recent addition to my beauty bag, and although sceptical at first I cannot live without this. I was so worried about how it would work in my hair as I have so much thick and long and wavy, frizzy hair but I was so happy with the results and how long they lasted. It goes hand in hand with my hairspray for those fly-aways!!
Sportsgirl Invisible hair ties – I will not tie my hair up with anything else now. Although Santa purchased these for the girls they have somehow made their way into my beauty bag…..and they ain’t leaving!!!
Primer – I cannot stress the importance of a good primer, I am CRUSHING on the Arbornne primer. A primer will help set your foundation for the day and give you a clean slate to start your day.
Eye care – maybe it’s my age coming into it but I am becoming so conscious of an eye care, I am currently using the Halo eye care products and loving the feel of these around my eye area. I have only been using them for two weeks and I already am noticing the difference in appearance to the fine lines.
Self tanner – I am as pasty and white as they come and am so vein that I love a little bronze colour on my skin. Also I don’t tan in the sun and don’t like being out in the sun too much that I burn (my skin seems to miss that brown phase and go from white to red to white again!!!) After using fake tanning products for 16 years now I have finally settled on Skinny Tan. I can pop it on in the morning and leave it for the day and not smell, not be orange and not have it rub off on my clothes then come morning I am a bronzed mumma ready to do groceries (it’s a glamourous life) The Tanning oil is my favourite of their products for sure.
