My current makeup bag

My current makeup bag contents by Laura Lewis

With Summer (hopefully) around the corner, it’s time for me to change up my day-to-day makeup bag, so I thought I’d share what’s going in. 

So here’s what my current makeup bag situation looks like...

I like to try and go as bare-faced as I can (without scaring people) during the summer, but when I need that bit of coverage I tend to reach for the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue which is great for a bit of coverage, and is cooling on the skin. If I want a bit more coverage, I go for the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder which works well on dry skin and gives you a nice dewey glow.

Primer wise, I can't enough of the Marc Jacobs Invisible Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer. I'm so happy we can now get this over here, as I was starting to worry about stocking up on this. I find this to be the perfect primer for those horrid humid days we've been having, as it keeps your skin hydrated when you have a layer of foundation over the top.

Not much changes when it comes to my concealer – I know I rave about the brand a lot, but the stretch concealer by Glossier has gone straight to the top of my favourite concealers. It’s lightweight but covers up your breakouts really well, and it doesn’t cake or stick to those pesky spots either. 

I seem to always have two mascaras on the go – it depends on what look I’m trying to achieve. My Givenchy Noir Couture Volume Mascara gives more of a defined look, and my Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Long and Curl Mascara gives them more of a natural look, but lifts them better than any other mascara I’ve tried, and there’s been a helluva lot of them over my mascara-wearing years. Brows, that’s easy – I use Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift, and Glossier Boy Brow. Sometimes I just use the latter.

Lips wise I tend to keep it natural over the summer, and most days I use Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 7. It’s hydrating, and smells delicious with a lovely tint. If I want something bolder, I’ll reach for one of my Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks, or my new The Estee Edit Barest Lip Colour ‘In The Buff’

Finally, for the cheeks I've been turning to my new favourite - Too Faced Love Flush in Love Hangover. I picked this up in Sephora, and I absolutely love it. Plus, the case looks like a Polly Pocket (If you're as old as I am, you'll know what I'm talking about) which is an added bonus and totally why I bought it in the first place.

There you have it. Look out for the next current makeup bag contents post in a couple of months, as it will be an extra special one *inserts all the bride emoji's here*
