What's in my beauty bag
My beaty bag will change a bit as the seasons do, so what i carry with me during the day will help me out quite a bit. With it being winter i like to wear a more musky but still a little sweet perfume. I am currently loving Serge Luten Ambre Sultan, its so comforting and is one of those scents that stays all day, do you ever get when you wear a perfume and you can't smell it off yourself? I hate that! so spending a little more on a good brand is something worth smelling. Bio Oil is great for stretch marks, my aunt used it when she was pregnant to keep from getting stretch marks on her belly (which i will be slapping on rigorously when its my turn hehe) and there is not one on he!. I use it as kind of an eye cream, especially in these colder months when my skin can dry out a lot more just to keep them smooth and soft so i don't look as old and tired with those early mornings (and late nights).
The Nars Copacobana Illuminator is so pretty, it gives my cheeks that little bit of a shimmer and highlights my cheek bones really well under my blusher...it's just luscious. I got a free Benefit lip gloss with the latest Elle mag called Dandelion and i love it, its sort of a nude watermelon colour with a little sparkle so it gives my lips a plumper look and adding a bit of shine. I have also been using the Benefit they're real! mascara, it was given to me by my sister in law as she kept sticking it in her eye and just couldn't take it any more...ahhh (which i never stop doing) i adore it, it does give your eyelashes that little boost without having to put fakes on, i am so lazy and very rarely wear eyelashes even though i love them so this mascara is perfect.
Laura Mercier is one of my favorite high end beauty brands and i always use their concealer in no 2, it just matches my skin perfectly and gives complete coverage without caking. I have recently bought the Percy and Reed hair products and this dry shampoo is really handy for those days i just want to let the natural oils through my hair for a bit longer and its a dinky little size to throw in my handbag too. Collection fast stroke eyeliner is also a new addition and is definitely a new favorite, i cant believe how cheap it is and doesn't smudge. For my brows, which is my favorite part of my beauty routine i use the No. 17 range, its very natural and is easy to blend in.
TIP: If you love those high end brow pencils but can not find your purse as it has ran away screaming..then go into find the one you like put a sample on your hand then go into boots or wherever you go and try a few next to your sample until you find one that matches. That's how i found the No. 17 one i love Laura Mercier pencils but sometimes i just can't afford it!
Make sure to tell me what's in your beauty bag this month in the comments. Have a good week!
