Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend.
I had a colleague’s wedding so it was great opportunity to get all dressed up! Today, I’ll be showing you my bag and what I packed in it for the evening.
Lately, I’ve been doing my very best to keep the number of items to a minimum. It’s been easy to achieve for evening events, however my day bags still need a good clean out!
The Bag – Dior: Without a doubt, my favourite evening handbag ever. I bought this after much debate as a form of ‘retail therapy’ when feeling very broke after buying a home with my boyfriend. Contradictory, I know. However, it will probably be the first and last pricey handbag I will ever buy. Beautiful and just oozing sophistication – a gorgeous piece that’s great for a special event.
Concealer: One of my favourites lately, MAC’s studio finish concealer in NC30. A fantastic consistency with superb long-lasting coverage. Definitely on par with my other favourite from Nars.
Powder: Nars pressed powder in Beach. I just love this! It gives a subtle colour, adding warmth and high coverage whilst keeping make up in place. Cheaper products do a similar job but this mirror it comes with is handy when out and about.
Brush: My skin is a bit dry at the moment so I got a small brush that I usually use for highlighting just to powder the t-zone if needed. The Sigma tapered highlighter F35 brush is perfect for this too. Great quality and lovely, soft bristles.
Eye Pencil:My favourite eye pencil so far, MAC’s ‘Engraved’ black eye pencil. It’s super black and intense and stays on all night with minimal touching up needed.
Lipstick: After my recent clear out of lipsticks, I fell back in love again with Milani’s Sangria. A gorgeous, deep plum colour that’s super sultry and long lasting. The great thing about it is that it isn’t drying on the lips, and fades evenly leaving a nice berry shade.
Lip Balm: I’m always carrying around lip balm lately and Vaseline is always one of my favourites. Extremely hydrating and long-lasting, these always get the job done.
