A Sneak Peek inside my Make Up Bag

Sunday, 1 June 2014


1. Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum £49
This is my go to perfume and I absolutely love it. It's described as a 'dazzling aura of glittering femininity' and it certainly oozes its qualities. It's a fresh scent with a woody base made up of cedar with exotic tones of tiger orchid.
It's so easy to wear and takes you through from day to night. I love the Jimmy Choo fragrances as they actually last all day unlike other brands that wear off after a couple of hours.

2. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer £34
Having just won InStyles Best Beauty Buy 2014 is it easy to see why this product is award worthy once you try it. It is super lightweight , providing a natural glow , moisture for the skin and with an SPF factor of 20 what isn't there to love? 
I am forever on a mission to find the best products that make my skin have the best dewy complexion and this certainly is the winner at the moment. With the recent sunny weather here in the UK I have just been popping this on my face with a bit of mascara and ta da ! You are ready for the day ! An amazing summer lazy girls product.

p.s I use the colour Tawny



3. CHANEL Perfection Luminere Foundation £36
For a little more coverage I go to my favourite foundation CHANEL PL. I don't care what people say you can not find the same standard on the high street that you can get with high end brands. Well I haven't found one yet and I am willing to be proved wrong .So for the meantime save up your pennies and go for a decent foundation , it's the base to your makeup and covers the largest part of your face. It is totally justifiable! 
I love how you can wear this foundation really light with one layer or build it up with a couple. It provides a glowing complexion , oozing radiance with a matte finish.
Because I alternate between my tinted moisturiser and this foundation I fins that it lasts a really long time.

4. Tanya Burr Midnight Sparkles £5.99
As Tanya is a fellow Norfolk(ian) and blogger I was intrigued to see what she had come up with for her collection of nail varnishes and lip glosses. I bought it more out of curiosity and I have fallen in love with it and will be purchasing a lot more of her collection once it is back in stock in my local Superdrug.
It is the MOST chip resistant polish on the high street and has great coverage and colour with just one coat . Although I do apply two plus base and top coats for the full effect.
I love this deep purple tone with the subtle sparkles it really reminded me of CHANEL's nail varnish Vendetta but at a much friendlier price. I tend to go for dark shades as I think they are more sophisticated and don't cause clashes with outfits like bright tones do.
I can't wait to purchase a few more for my make up bag.

5. BOBBI BROWN Blushed Blusher £19
I have had this blusher for ages but haven't really used it till over the last couple of weeks and I love the way it highlights the apples of my cheeks.
It's a really silky formula and brushes on well and lasts all day without topping up. It has a matte finish as I hate most bronzers/blushes with sparkles as I find them tacky and over powering for a daytime look.
I have it in the colour Blushed but it comes in an array of gorgeous colours and tones.
