What's in my makeup bag: tag.

What seems like ages ago Emma from ‘Cupcakes you say?’ tagged me in a ‘what’s in your makeup bag?’ post. Apologies that I’ve only just got around to doing this, blame it on revision!
Before I continue with the post I should probably let you all know that I am far from a makeup enthusiast (clearly I’m a poor excuse for a beauty blogger). It’s not that I don’t think I need makeup to look attractive because I do, it’s just I can never be bothered to put it on (shocking, I know.) Fear not though because I do have a collection all the same for those rare occasions when I’m feeling at adventurous!
So in my actual makeup bag is all of my relatively cheap standard drug store makeup, nothing to get excited about! The bag is Dior. Up until a few years ago my nan used to work for Dior makeup so she seemed to have an endless supply of Dior goodies to give me.





Below is what I consider my proper makeup. It’s all Laura Geller, I don’t know how many of you have heard of her? My pictures (as usual) make it look cheap and glitterly but it's truely not. I think she’s mainly US based – google her if you want to find out more! The powdered eye liner is my favourite since it’s the only one I can actually apply! The brush for this is amazing, but I was too lazy to take a picture of it (sorry, I’m turning into such a bad blogger!).


My favourite is the powdered foundation because it’s so easy to apply and feels really light on the skin (hate that heavy makeup feeling!). The highlighter is great too, the only downfall being the fact that it’s only a small section surrounded by a sea of unused blusher (I’m not a blush fan!). I also use the Laura Geller primer, mascara and lip pallet but again I didn't bother to photograph them.


Lastly my makeup brushes. They’re Dior and I can really tell the difference from the few cheaper brushes that I’ve tried. The foundation brush in particular works really well!


So that’s it! This post hasn’t been great actually what with my lack of motivation to take decent photos. Blame it on my camera, I’m really hating it at the moment, it’s so heavy and awkward to position so I usually just give up. I’m going to be lazy (ha, again!) and tag you all in this post!
Thank you for reading, I promise my posts will improve once my exams are done! Not that I can use that as an excuse since I’m hardly doing any strenuous revision! You'll be seeing me at 9.25 on The Jeremy Kyle show with all of the other illiterate people the rate I'm going.

I LURVVEEE Laura Gellar! I first heard about her stuff on QVC and bought my Mum the Sugarbomb (think that's what it's called) set and occasionally use the eyeshadows every now and then. They're so pretty! x
