My everyday make up bag

It's almost been 4 years in April since i started my blog and i think i have only ever done 1 everyday make up bag post in that time.. A serious updated post was way overdue so i thought i'd share with you all today my current everyday make up bag and what's inside.. 
My make up bag is the Ted Baker Dorin Allover Medium Wash Bag which i wrote a post on here. I have actually still kept the tags on this make up bag, purely because even the tag was to pretty to take off.  The make up bag is mint green and has a doggy print all over, it's absolutely stunning and holds all my everyday essentials.
First things first, i cannot live without my Urban Decay Basics Palette, i use this palette every single day, it's definitely my go-to eyeshadow palette, it's easy to carry around and has all the basic shades. I also could not live without my L'Oreal Telescopic Waterproof Mascara, unfortunately this mascara is so hard to find nowadays as they discontinued it and i think they just rebranded it, however i've tried all the other L'Oreal waterproof mascaras and they don't even come close to this! This one is amazing at holding curls throughout the day, doesn't smudge and has a tiny brush to get all those small pesky lashes.
Sticking with eyes, i have to have a decent eyeliner in my make up bag and one i've been loving and constantly repurchasing is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Black Eyeliner, i've used plenty of eyeliners in the past but none of them live up to this one! This eyeliner simply doesn't budge, it does smudge a little however when first applied but nothing a cotton bud couldn't fix.
Onto something i don't use everyday like i used to but still absolutely love, the Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner. I used to use this every single day until i decided to switch up my look, however i like to keep this in my make up bag just incase i want to switch my look from a day time look to an evening look.
For brows, i've always used the Benefit's Browzing and i find that it works best and stays put all day, topped off with the Maybelline Brow Drama which means my brows ain't going anywhere!
Moving on to my everyday face products, i'll start with the primer first.. I've never been a massive fan of primer however that's until i went to go get my foundation shade matched at MAC and they used this MAC Prep + Prime on me. It makes my skin look flawless, now i wonder why i've never used primer before!
Talking about matching foundations, i ended up picking up the MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC25 and the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in one shade below. I love how full coverage the foundation and concealer are, it literally covers anything! Any imperfections, dark circles.. you name it, this covers it!
I always have to have a back up concealer which is where my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer comes in handy, no need to ramble about this as everyone know's the concealer. Amazing is all i'm going to say!
For powder, i've only ever really stuck and gone back to one face powder, the Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Powder is literally the' bomb!
As for contouring i like the Benefit Hoola, i only have a sample size of this as mine completely ran out months ago and hadn't had the time or money to get the full size again, however this mini size has lasted for months, still my favourite bronzer/contour powder.
Lastly is by far my favourite product of all, the NARS Orgasm Blush, this blusher is absolutely stunning and my favourite blush of all time! Stunning rose gold blush with slight shimmer!
Okay, for the best part.. Lipsticks! I carry 2 lipsticks round with me.. Both from MAC! The first is my go-to everyday shade which is MAC Creme Cup a gorgeous pinky nude shade and then MAC Impassioned for evening make up which is a bright Reddy Pink shade. You can see swatches of these in my Top 5 MAC Lipsticks video.
Next is a lipgloss/gloss stick which i raved so much about last year and still to this day keep on raving about, it's the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in Nudist. I am still so much in love with this as i was when i first bought it, it's such a gorgeous glossy everyday shade which is perfect for any skin types. Just absolutely gorgeous!
Lastly for lips has to be a lip balm, i am currently loving the Maybelline Baby Lips in Mint Fresh, not to much to say about this just that it does the job, has a really nice tingly feel to it when applied.
Finally in my make up bag has to be a hand cream as my hands get so ridiculously rough and dry this time of year! I've been really liking the Neom Complete Bliss Organic Hand Cream, I received this in my You Beauty Advent Calendar and i've been using it everyday since, it's got such a gorgeous floral scent to it and it's extremely moisturising to!

What's in your everyday make up bag?
