What is in the bag?

I have so much stuff the bag don't close
For Christmas I got this cute River Island make-up bag from one of my friends and it has been a God send. I currently hold all my 'must have' items that I use daily. I have to be awake at 6am for university so this is my 'I'm in a rush, can't be bothered to do a full face of make-up routine' rather than a full face routine that includes foundation and lipstick.

I start with my Olay cleaning milk and use my hands for a deep cleanse, I then use a cotton pad and do a quick cleanse and finish off by taking it off with my Olay toner. I don't always use moisturiser but when I do I use my snail gel which doesn't fit in the bag at all. I then move on to my eyes and use my Benefit they're real mascara to define my lashes and my Bourjois clubbing mascara to make them thicker then I use my Benefit they're real again to get rid of clumps and make them look even thicker and longer. I then move on to my Barry M eyeliner. By this point my mascara is normally dry and I can use the E.L.F remover pen to get them little bits on my eyelid. I then go on to my brows and use my Benefit brow zings and MUA eyebrow brush (not the pencil side) and I often pluck a hair or two that aren't sitting correctly. If I am running late that is me done if not I'll put my MUA eyeshadow on and I'll use some vaseline. I also have a hair band and a few hair pins as mine often mine break in the morning rush. I also can't forget my sharpener that cost 25p in a whole make-up brush set from ASDA! 

What is in your make-up bag? Any must have items? I am looking for a new eyeliner that doesn't smudge so much. Any recommendations?

  3. My make up bag is always full of clips and bobbles lol. I love the sound of the ELF remover pen, I'm always smudging my mascara and it sounds like it would be perfect for me. xx

  4. The bag is beautiful, I would love a bag like that. It's good to have a 'rush' bag, although mine is just a lip balm, (oops). Great post, always good to see what you are using!

    I love the make up bag, it is beautiful. As always it is brilliant to see what you are using and having a 'rush' bag is such a great idea, mine is just a lip balm! ;) x
