What's In My Make-Up Bag? | KMC Beauty

It's fair to say that I am a bit of a nosy parker, I always like to see posts on what is in other bloggers make-up bags, so I thought I would share what is in mine. All of these items are pretty much my everyday essentials, some I like to swap and change depending on the day I am preparing for and some days when I am going for a 'no make-up' make-up look I won't use all of these products just the bare minimum. Non the less these products get the most use from me and are always in my make-up bag.


So i've put together a break down of all the products I use with a some what 'mini review' on each item.


Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation - Classic Beige
A familiar product on my blog, mentioned this in my May Favourites and it is now a staple item in my make-up bag at the moment, I use the colour classic beige which is a great match for me, the coverage is great, it's definitely full coverage in my book which is what I look for in a foundation. Thinking of doing a full in depth review on this foundation so keep a look out for that!


Maybelline 'The Eraser Eye' Concealer - Light
Love this concealer, it's a really affordable option and it gives good results, as you can see i'm half way through my tube I will be no doubt going out to pick up a new one soon! I use the colour light because as well as providing under eye coverage to hide those pesky bags, I like to have a slightly highlighted under eye, then even when I am super tired I can look more awake than I actually am.
My only issue with this concealer is the sponge applicator, it's so messy! And probably quite unsanitary if i'm honest, that sponge is probably bacteria heaven right now, but i'm the only one using it so it's not major, I can live with it.
Even though I got this concealer from Boots I can't find it on their website at the moment and it is out of stock on the Superdrug website, so I hope this isn't permanent!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - NC15
You are probably not that surprised that this concealer is in my make-up bag, I don't use this concealer on a daily basis only when I need the extra coverage that the Maybelline concealer doesn't give me. Holy grail product though, don't think I will ever go without this one.

MAC Studio Fix Powder - NC20
Since I have started using the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation I don't use this powder as much, however when I know I have a long day ahead of me I always use powder to set my foundation and keep my oil under control throughout the day. This powder has lasted me a really long time, i'm sure I have had it almost a year and still not hit pan.
Online at MAC Cosmetics.


Nars 'Laguna' Bronzer
Another familiar product on my blog, use this bronzer pretty much every single day and I can't get enough of it at the moment, perfect for giving your skin that sun kissed glow.
Find online here.


Mary-Lou Manizer by theBalm
I'm sure you have heard of this product before it's often talked about in the blogging/youtubing beauty world, it really is a beautiful highlight and it is also extremely pigmented so I always use a light hand when applying to prevent my face from looking like a disco ball, but a nice wash of this on the top of the cheek bones leaves your face with that healthy glow.

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish - Superb
I think I am probably the only person in the world that doesn't own the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Soft and Gentle' but I did pick up the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in 'Superb' up from Debenhams a little while ago now, I believe the collection was the 'Magnetic Nude' collection and unfortunately this product is now sold out, however I really enjoy using this highlighter when I have a nice bronzed face.


MAC Blush - Springsheen
I enjoy using this blush when I want that nice flushed look, although this is a shimmer blush there is hardly any shimmer payoff, which I enjoy because I don't particularly like shimmery blushes on my cheeks!
Find it here.

Benefit Blush - Rockateur
Love this blush, slightly lighter than the Springsheen and has that nice rose gold colour running through it, all the benefit boxed blushes are great this is just the one that happens to be in my make-up bag as of recent.

Too Faced lashGASM Mascara
My absolute pet hate is wasting mascara, I hate leaving them in my drawer to dry up, so whether they are bad or good I am determined to use them no matter what! I got this mascara in a set along with the Joy To The Girls palette from ASOS in the sale at the beginning of the year and don't get me wrong this mascara is nice, the firm bristles separate my lashes and coat them all nicely without any clumps, it's relatively lengthening too, however this mascara does nothing for my lashes in the volume department! Never the less I will use this mascara up until the very end.
Find online at BeautyBay.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz - Brunette
All time favourite brow pencil without the hassle of sharpening, the thin pencil allows for precise application and the spoolie on the other end is amazing for combing through my brows and blending out the product.
I am thinking of trying the DipBrow Pomade by Anastasia Beverly Hills next time though, anybody tried this? What do you think?

Rimmel GlamEyes Professional Liquid Liner - 001 Black
When it comes to achieving the perfect winged eyeliner this product delivers the goods. the thin flexible brush allows for sharp and precise lines and the long handle makes it easy to manoeuvre your hand into position to apply the liner.
Find it online at Boots.
