Makeup Monday: Blogger Makeup Bag

For this month's Blogger Makeup Bag, I'm thrilled to introduce one of my favourite bloggers, Michelle from Luxe Life Aspirations. Based in Dublin, Michelle is a beauty addict and fellow skincare junkie. Every time I visit her blog, my beauty wishlist gets longer so I couldn't wait to peek inside her makeup bag. Without further ado, I hand you over to Michelle...

My makeup bag is an old Marc by Marc Jacobs pouch that I've had for years but I love it. Who doesn't love a bit of leopard print? And it's huge so I can fit lots in it, including the kitchen sink if necessary! 

It's getting ridiculous now the amount of times I go on about this but the Diorskin Nude BB Crème in shade #001 is much hyped and deservedly so. I love the flawless satin skin-like glow this gives.

For under my eyes or on any redness, I use the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. This offers a hefty dose of correcting and coverage.

Because I over-plucked my brows as a sixteen year old, they will always need some definition. I use the Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Auburn. Not too cool or warm, this is the perfect shade for me.

Cheeks are sorted with a light application of cream blush. My current favourite is Le Blush Crème de Chanel in #62 Presage, a gorgeous pinky/ peach hybrid that dries down to an almost velvet finish.

I generally skip eyeshadow during the day and go for lashings of mascara. I'm using the Lancôme Hypnose Doll Eyes at the moment. The brush gets to the root of the lashes like nothing else and it gives amazing volume and thickness.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder in #10 is added mostly for the large mirror but also because it's amazing for taking down any shine without ever looking cakey.

Lastly, continuing the colour theme, lips are kept glossy and peach toned with Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss in Mirth.

I've recently downsized my handbag so these are the makeup items that have survived the cull. Just a handful of products to lug around with me, just incase.

Thanks Michelle for taking part!
