What's In My Makeup Bag 2017

Makeup bag LauraThinksAbout

Hey guys! So I just did a massive makeup bag sort, and bought two new items that I love. So of course I had to share.

Now for the base products....

Now I have to admit I made a mistake about one of the products in the post. I did a review of Nars Sheer Glow in Deuville last year and basically said I hated it. I gave it another go 2 weeks ago because I ran out of my ex fave foundation and now LOVE it. Something I have done must have been different, but now I'm wearing it everyday.
The two newest products in my makeup bag are the Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla (raved about by everyone) and the Mac Give Me Sun bronzer. So far so good! Other items shown; Loreal true match liquid highlighter, Collection lasting perfection concealer, Nyx blush in Mauve, Mac mineralized skin finish in medium, Sleek blush in Rose Gold.


I always go quite simple with my eye makeup day to day. Any Rimmel mascara does it for me, I'm not too fussy with what mascara I use. I recently have been using an Lancome pencil liner and found it was so easy to apply. If I'm feeling more "daring" I use an eyeshadow and liquid liner. For eyebrows it has to be the Anastasia Dip Brow in chocolate. I have tried other products but this is the only one that lasts and doesn't just wipe off after 5 mins (I have lack of eyebrow hairs so I really have to draw on a shape).

I haven't included any lip products/lipsticks because if I'm honest I have a lipstick in every bag I use and just pick what I want to wear on the day! I have been trialing no foundation makeup too! 

What is in your daily makeup bag?!

Love Laura xx

  14. Eyeing up all these gorgeous products in your make-up bag babe! Looks like these are all so summer ready and glowy. It's so good you're loving NARS Sheer Glow after it being a bit of a disappointment last time. NARS creamy concealer looks amazing as does MAC's Give Me Sun bronzer, sounds like they make a total dream team together 😍

    At the moment I'm loving the Maybelline strobing stick coupled with my trusty ICONIC gold glittery body oil. Anything gold and glittery gets my vote ✨💕⛱

  15. Rimmel Scandaleyes is honestly one of the best mascaras I've ever tried, they give me such beautiful eyelashes and mine look awful without it haha.

    1. Rimmel do the best drugstore mascaras! x

  16. I find that sometimes base products look really good and sometimes they don't, in my case it's to do with my skincare. If I haven't exfoliated recently, they'll look bad haha! Sleek blushes are so good, I have a palette with 3 individual shades and it's great xx

  17. Loving your picks here! Mineralize blush by MAC is my absolute favourite, it is almost impossible to hit pan on it, but it is so lightweight.

  18. I always use that lasting collection concealer myself, it is fantastic :) I'm the same NARS shade as you, I'm currently using up my sheer glow to go back to my trust YSL favourite though.
