and what do you keep in it? do you buy duplicates of everything? or is it emergency slap only? hmm

due to the rather fab offer on at the body shop i now have duplicate lipglosses and makeup bag to keep it in and am waondering what handbag makeup etiquette is? grin

I have quite a big make up bag with my tinted moisturiser, Benefit Hollywood Glo, mascar, powder, blusher, eye liner, a nail varnish, a selection of lip glosses, a selection of eye shadows, lip balm, eyelash curlers, pencil sharpener and a mirror in it. Strange then that I always wear the same make up! I then have a vanity case with loads of other stuff in it that only ever gets opened when I am going out.

so does anyone else keep the whole works in there? i currently have lipgloss and handcream. and a mirror.

i keep the works! as i said, my makeup fades very quickly.

so does that mean you keep your regular makeup bag in there or you have a duplicate set? i just know mine is going to end up with all manner of crap in there...a little people goat...some fluff...a raisin or 2...

No duplicates. Just regular make up.

Full make up, including two colours of foundation (I'm midway between the two at the moment!), powder, blusher, bronzer, mascara, eyeshadow, lipstick, eyeliner, lip gloss and touche eclat. I'm always piling the stuff on, terrible habit really.

mascara - thats a good one - idon't always wear it but then i'll look in a mirror when out ad wonder why my eyes look piggy and small...shock

and concealer..always wise...
