My day to day make up bags

I am not having a good day.

Today is TOH’s birthday and things have already gone wrong. A courier was supposed to deliver something – at 9.30am the bell goes, there’s a mad dash to the door and they’ve already done a runner, as if they WANTED me to miss my delivery. Very frustrating. And as always, you call the customer services up and the don’t know nuffin.

That is the least of my problems of course – today has been uber problematic but I am going to try and take a positive stance as I don’t want to completely ruin TOH’s happy, happy day. I didn’t get him a card though. You know men look at cards and go ‘thanks’ and within a week its in the bin. Hey, I’m just being practical!

I’ve noticed my stash pics aren’t working – lost during the hosting provider move, so I will have to retake and repost shortly.

Meanwhile, I though I’d share my day to day cosmetic bags. Whilst my main collection is too big and confusing for day to day wear, I have two vanity bags, from Primark that are made of oilcloth and are really good – sturdy, waterproof, spacious and cheap!

These are the bags I have by my bed and the ones I dip into day to day. I rotate things around every now and then.

This is my colour bag, which has lip products: eyeshadows, eyeliners, pencils and so on


I have my MAQUillage palettes here and some dazzle dusts, New ID palette, some KATE palettes, Sula balms, RMK, Dior etc.


Lip stuff – its a real mix, from here I can see MAC, RMK, Cle De Peau, Lancome Phia Black etc.


I hardly use Lunasol colours but they are always there because they are so lovely and are there for any emergency. I have bobbi brown gel liners too Jill Stuart eye jellies…


In the top half I keep mascaras and pencils:


Its a mix of Make Up Forever, Urban Decay 24/7, Chanel, Shu Uemura, Nars, Illamasqua…


I have Soooooo many mascaras. At the moment I need to throw the L’oreal Volumious away – it’s getting pretty gross and some other bits and pieces:


This is my base bag. It has primers, concealers, powder, foundation, blushers, highlighters etc. and brow products. There are a few of my Nars blushers here, Afterglow mineral make up, Clarins Base, New ID marble blushers, La Mer foundation, Stila Contour Palette, Lise Waiter concealer (yak), Anastasia brow products (yay)…


Top section has primers, some blushers and Nars copacobana and Palm beach, some BB cream, pore fillers, shadow primers….


Ok now that’s my little treat for you! Wish my luck, hopefully the day can only get better!
