Out and About Make Up

*The title should definitely be read in a Scottish or Canadian accent*
I never used to take a make up bag out with me often but now I'm rarely with out it. Be prepared! Although most of it is just for emergencies because I feel self concious doing my make up in the toilets or with lots of people around. Anyone else get that?

The make up bag I use is one my Mum got free from Clinique. I 'borrowed' it a few months a go because I love the pattern on the front. It reminds me of the Miu Miu lip clutch bag that I have wanted for years!

1. Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 101
Lippy is the only make up I  always touch up in public. The lipstick I have in here changes almost everyday but at the moment I have been loving this one as it is so creamy and smells good.

2. Collection Concealer in Fair
For those emergencies when you look in the mirror and think "God I look awful". To be honest I don't use it when I am out and about much because, like I said before I get quite self conscious doing my make up.

3.Cherry Carmex
A must have in the winter! Whenever I put this on I get comments on how nice the smell is.Its cheap and has lasted me for ages. Perfect!

4. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - Peach Glow
I love this powder! It doesn't really give coverage as such but it does reduce the appearance of pores and give a soft finish. Surprisingly Peach Glow doesn't leave skin orangey it just gives your skin some colour which is great for pale skins. My nose gets oily but this powder keeps it matte for about 4-5 hours. I recommend trying it.

5. Barry M Kohl Liner- Black
I use a little bit of this on my waterline just to give it some definition. Its not great as it feels quite rough and smudges throughout the day. The hunt is on for a better replacement!

Thanks for reading!x


  1. Hey I nominate you for the Liebster Award for more info check out my blog http://discountbeauty101.blogspot.com

  2. for an eyeliner that doesn't smudge throughout the day i would recommend rimmel londons waterproof exagerate eye definer, it really is pretty waterproof, barely ever smudges and is a wind up rather than a pencil that you have to sharpen, i really like it
    I love the carmex, powder and concealer and i have my eye on that lipstick!x
