This is my make up bag, I absolutely love it. I got it in the Topshop sale for £7 down from £14. I wanted it before it was reduced though and never got round to buying it. It's just the right size as well, big enough to fit all my essentials in but not so big that it's too bulky.
These are my eye make up essentials, there are a few more bits hiding in the depths of my make up bag but they looked so worn out I thought it was best not to photograph them.

Blink and Go Eyeshadow and Blush Palette in 02
The Max Factor mascara is my absolute favourite. It makes my lashes so long and defined - just how I like them. I've been buying this for years now and haven't found anything else better. I'm always open to suggestions though so if anyone knows of an amazing product please let me know.
The Blink and Go palette is from Decembers Glossybox and has the colours you need to create a gold smokey eye or a black smokey eye. It also contains two blushes but they're a bit too highly pigmented for me. I think my skin tone is a bit too pale to take them during the winter, maybe they'll look better during the summer when I have a bit of a tan. Or maybe I just need to apply them with a lighter hand.
These are my every day base essentials. I also use Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer over the top of the foundation but that was hiding away in my handbag when I look these photos.

Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer
Max Factor Xperience Weightless Foundation in Light Ivory
17 Blusher in China Pink
Since I've been taking photos for my blog I've noticed that this blusher looks massively pink of my face, I think it might be time to switch to something a bit softer.
I've just included the essentials in this post, there's also a few make up brushes kicking around in my make up bag but they're in need of a good wash so I didn't bother to take any photos.
