Let's have a fun thread!

What's in your makeup bag ladies?

Which foundation do you use? And do you wear makeup everyday?

A lot of dust and broken bits of eyeliner pencil and other things that stain the carpet when the baby tips it out.

Nicebucket Mon 15-Feb-16 23:27:42

I'll go first- (don't judge, makeup and skincare is the only thing I really spend on! I am very stingy elsewhere)

I use two foundations- MAC studio fix and studio sculpt! My skin is true combination skin, so I have to mix the dry and oily skin ones.

I have L'oreal mascara, MAC kohl, MAC blush Bobby brown powder and Clinique concealer. And lip balm, I don't wear lipstick everyday.

Hardly ever wear it but I should. So I've recently been sorting it out and have

Clinique tinted moisturiser
Clinique mascara
Rimmel eyeshadow
Rimmel lipliner
Natural collection moiturising lipstick

Very little- Dd is 11 hmm

cornishglos Mon 15-Feb-16 23:29:05

Oh and no.7 cover up stuff for shsdows under eyes.

Nicebucket Mon 15-Feb-16 23:29:27

I have horrible skin, so I wear it to work five days a week. I try and avoid it on the weekend unless I have some big event.

CakeNinja Mon 15-Feb-16 23:31:30

I have never owned a makeup bag! I have a tin of Vaseline in my handbag, an eyeliner in the bathroom cupboard that I won about 10 years ago.
Shoddy effort sad

I'm a tomboy and have an allergy to some perfumes, so never got into the habit of wearing the full face.
I have about 5 different eyeliners including one liquid, waterproof and a khol, all black. Two mascara, waterproof, black.
Lip gloss, honey flavour.
Tweezers, comb, brush.
Er, thats it. blush

Seriously, I have gay mates that wear more makeup than me.

horseygeorgie Mon 15-Feb-16 23:35:31

I'll go -

Benefit poreprofessional primer.
YSL touch eclat concealer
Eyebrow curlers,
L'oreal foundation,
Estee Lauder blusher
" " Brush set (foundation, eyebrow, powder, lipstick)
Max factor mascara
Rimmel 100% waterproof mascara (the best I've ever found - riding in 3 hours driving rain and the stuff doesn't budge!)
Tesco cheap as chips setting powder.
Estee Lauder eyeshadow palette.
Benefit lipstain or Estee Lauder lipstick.

horseygeorgie Mon 15-Feb-16 23:36:27

Oh, max factor eyeliner. The stuff in a pot that comes with a brush. Also have a rimmel felt tip eyeliner.

ghostyslovesheep Mon 15-Feb-16 23:36:51

no idea - I last used make up Christmas Day

I guess some primer, foundation, lip stick and mascara - no clue on brands

I don't wear it much

hefzi Mon 15-Feb-16 23:36:59

I don't wear make-up - ever - so I have no idea why I have so much of it confused

Seriously - I can't wear lipstick because I chew and bite my lips constantly: so why do I end up buying it in Boots? I've reined it in a lot - but why, MNetters, why?!

Nicebucket Mon 15-Feb-16 23:37:37


I forgot to add I keep eyelash curlers and a Bobbi brown highlighter and Bobbi brown eyeshadow palette (from 3 years ago). And Bobbi brown bronzer. Did I mention I like Bobbi brown?

I also have some assorted real techniques and MAC brushes in there.

fieldfare Mon 15-Feb-16 23:37:56

I normally wear at least a little every day.
At home, tinted moisturiser by Loreal, clear mascara no 17 I think and Vaseline lip balm.
Going out daytime, max factor powder foundation compact, max factor cream coloured eyeshadow, grey bourgeois kohl eyeliner, max factor black waterproof mascara, Primark eyebrow pencil in soft brown, nude lipstick by Maybelline I think.
Going out evening, max factor foundation, loose powder, Chanel eyeshadow palette using a shimmery pinkish tone with grey and a shimmery dark grey, benefit black liquid eyeliner, same eyebrow pencil, a great black waterproof mascara (can't remember by whom), Chanel lipstick, lipstick lock.

That sounds a lot!!! It really isn't, my makeup bag is actually quite small.

LegoLady95 Mon 15-Feb-16 23:38:04

I wear it every day (even if I'm not leaving the house). I just think I look awful without it!
I don't wear foundation, ever, just concealer under eyes and powder. Eyes are my thing. I wear eyeliner and mascara daily, eyeshadow too for nights out. Bronzer as a blusher daily but rarely lipstick or gloss, just balm.
I love make up and enjoy the ritual of sitting with a cuppa and putting it on in the morning.

LegoLady95 Mon 15-Feb-16 23:39:31

I have about 8 different eyeliners on my make up bag!

Nicebucket Mon 15-Feb-16 23:39:47

I didn't wear makeup for the longest time! But my skin has always been bad- very oily nose, dry and flakey elsewhere, acne, pigmentation. Makeup did loads for my confidence.

No 7 highlighter for cheekbones and browbones
Bourjois rose gold blusher

I wear this everyday but I don't usually haul eyeliner, mascara or eyeshadow around, only if I have a long day. I reapply powder and concealer.

It sounds like a lot but it takes me about 5 min to apply.

hefzi Mon 15-Feb-16 23:42:42

OP, it's not because I have nice skin that I don't wear make-up, btw - I'd just rather have an extra ten minutes in bed grin Luckily, I don't have a corporate job, so I also don't have to wear suits and heels. Or nail varnish. I think I am just not accomplished enough to understand make up - which is weird, because I am shit hot when it comes to skincare hmm

WanderingNotLost Mon 15-Feb-16 23:43:22

Oh and Bourjois bronzer for the 2 weeks of the year that I have a vaguely tanned appearance
