Your make-up bag

I was requested to do a blog post about clearing out your make-up and the essentials etc.

So here we go :)

Many ladies nowadays have got a range of make-up, from their everyday make-up to the make-up for nights out and numerous palettes and brushes.

If you are the type of person that has a busy schedule or always carries their make-up bag in their handbag then it can be very annoying when ya have your make-up bag practically bursting open.

My advice is, invest ina bigger make-up bag that can hold palettes and has different sections etc to store all your make-up and have that in your room or wherever you do like to keep your make-up.

You could also designate a drawer in your dresser if you thought it was big enough to store everything. There are also plenty of other cute options such as the last photo there on the this blog post of the see-through storage unit. These have become very popular in the last 18months or so. Prices range from as little as €25 to over €150 depending where you purchase and what you are looking for.

These options would be where you realistically store all your range of make-up. Then it’s time to clear out your make-up bag that you bring in your handbag. take everything out and give your bag a wipe with a face-wipe just to keep it clean.

Try to figure out how long you have certain products, such as mascara, it’s a breathing ground for bacteria due the use of the wand continuously being used on your eyes on a daily basis. You should try change your mascara after 3months.

Then think about your daily essentials and what you use/will use ona daily basis to have in that make-up bag.

Here is a list of what might be a possibility for your everyday use;

-Mascara

-gel/liquid liner

-concealer

-BB cream/tinted moisturizer/light foundation

-lipgloss

-a neutral lipstick

-a mini blush &/or contour palette (there’s so many out there to choose from to fit perfectly in)

-Compact powder

That would usually be what’s needed for your everyday use.

With make-up brushes, it may be awkward to bring them all in your handbag, you can always invest in travel size brushes that usually contain the essential ones you would need; meaning you can leave all your other ones at home in the storage area.

Hopefully this has helped many ladies that may be having trouble with a bursting make-up bag haha.

Had some random Disney fun yesterday with one my friends allowing me to use her face to create cute little eye make-up inspired eyes.
