It has been a long long time since I last made a proper beauty post and since I’ve been out and about a lot more this past week I thought why not share what I have in my little makeup pouch – since I take it EVERYWHERE with me!
I honestly feel like I just cannot leave the house without a) moisturising myself, and b) having some moisturiser in my bag! I cannot stress the importance of hand cream in my life! The one Im currently using (and almost done with) is the Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream. It is very moisturising and smells like, well, strawberries! I dont think you can go wrong with that.
I also have my miniature Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion which I tend to use on my arms (and sometimes feet, yeah gross I know) for a quick pick me up because it just smells so good and its a great ‘instant hydration’!
Carrying some sort of fragrance in my bag is also a MUST for me because I tend to always forget to spritz some on before leaving my house so knowing that I have a little one in my bag makes me feel at ease. The one Im currently carrying about is The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine, its floral but also has a little hint of musk somewhere in there which is nice because I dont need to spray too much on.
Brightening up the inner corner of my eyes has become almost a routine for me, I love the huge difference it makes and it makes my whole look a lot more fresher especially when its a long day! I use a variety of products to brighten my eyes up but the one that I always have on-the-go is the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese.
THE BEST PART = THE LIPS! I am a bit overly obsessed with lip moisture and lip balms at the moment which is why I have like 3 lip balms with me at all times. The purple ball is an EOS lip balm in Blackberry Nectar, it is not the most moisturising lip balm ever but its good for a pre lipstick prep! Second, the Dior Lip Glow, it is very moisturising and my most used lip balm, since it has a colour to it I always tend to use it on its own. Its the same with the Maybelline Baby Lips balm too, it is not the best lip balm in the world but I love the colour it gives!
My most used lipstick at the moment is MAC Captive, it is a lovely pink shade which goes perfectly with everything that I wear, I always have it on hand wherever I go.
And lastly, the two things that I also cannot leave the house without, my portable mirror and the most important thing in the world – HAND SANITIZER!
They are both quite self-explanatory as to why I would need them.
Thats all for now ya’ll, I hope you enjoyed this post!
