What's in my Makeup Bag | Guest Post

Hello again! As mentioned yesterday the scheduled blog posts didn't actually go live when they were supposed to(damn you blogger!). But today I have a guest post by one lovely girl called Sarah, from Simply Sarah. I have followed and read her blog over the best part of nearly a year and thoroughly enjoy it so I hope you enjoy this post from her too.

Hey! I'm Sarah and I usually blog over at  I am here guest posting for the lovely Lauren while she moves into her new home, so I thought I would share what's currently in my make up bag.

I switch up my make up all the time, but just recently I have found some bits that I have been keeping in my make up bag for longer than I usually would, which can only be a good thing since I'm less likely to buy any new products!  

My go-to base for a few months now has been Jouer Matte Moisture Tint, which I never thought that I could like since I've never really got on with tinted moisturisers/light coverage.  This, however, is light yet covers really well, and gives a flawless and natural glow - despite being 'matte'.  Another good thing about it is that you only need the smallest little blob to cover your entire face, which means it will last a good long time.  Next up is the infamous Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, and I'm sure you've heard more than enough times by now how this cult drugstore product works!  I use it religiously to cover my dark circles and also any spots I have, the thick consistency is ideal for giving good coverage and it doesn't budge for hours.  Then there is the Autograph highlighter - a brand that probably goes pretty unnoticed in the blogging world, but this is a pretty powder highlighter that is ideal for pale skin - it gives a soft rose gold toned glow to my cheekbones.  Benefit Sugarbomb is my day to day choice for blush, the colour is a buildable coral, made up of four little shades in the box.  This is my third repurchase of Sugarbomb, so I think it's safe to say that's it's my favourite!  

For my eyebrows I use Anastasia DipBrow Pomade, a gel that is deeply pigmented and is an easy, quick way to create a strong shape.  This is most definitely my hold grail brow product, if you haven't tried a gel formula yet then I highly recommend this.  On my eyes right now I am loving the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette, a naughty treat that I could not resist!  I have done a full review of this on my blog, but it is a eye shadow quad that has a highlight shade, a base, a crease shade and a gold glitter shade that all make it easy to create a variety of different but equally beautiful looks.  The quality of the eye shadows is excellent, the pigmentation is fantastic and they are perfect for making your eyes really stand out.  At the moment my mascara of choice is Maxfactor Masterpiece Max, which is brilliant at giving a good bit of volume to my lashes.  I especially like to use this on my bottom lashes, and the wand is the ideal shape for coating them without splodging it all over my eye!  Lastly, I am loving using this YSL Rouge Volute lipstick in shade 32 (I think!).  This was another high end treat, but I have definitely being getting my money's worth out of it!  It feels as moisturising as any good balm would, and the colour is beautiful and well pigmented.  

So there is everything that I currently have in my make up bag!  I hope you enjoyed this post, and maybe even found some bits that you would like to try! xx

I hope you enjoyed that lovely read, I sure love to find out what fellow bloggers have in their makeup bag. Yes I'm a complete nosey parker! If you'd love to follow Sarah's blog then I highly suggest you check it out in the link above!
