My Take to Work Make-Up Bag

whats in my makeup bag one

For the past three weeks I have made the transfer of being a full time student to working full time in a office. When I was at university there weren't many days where I was on campus all day so didn't carry around a "make up bag" but now that I'm in the office 9-5 Monday to Friday I definitely need a few supplies to keep my make up in place and to keep fresh.

To start off with it wouldn't a make up bag without a hand cream (cause my hands get so crazy dry after washing them) and a hand sanitiser (the strawberry one from The Body Shop smells amazing!) to keep your hands happy.

My smell of choice is the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess. I wanted a perfume that doesn't totally stink up the whole office but a smell that will just freshen me up after lunch. This is perfect. It also makes me feel like I'm on a beach for a split second.
I also carry around a little brush to help apply my powder. The one I use is by Dior that I got with my bronzer but you can easily pick up one from Boots or even your local supermarket.

I don't like carrying around expensive powders because I'm also worried they will get smashed in my bag but this one from Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder does the job perfectly to fix up any midday shine.
I also like to use my Chanel Correcteur Perfection long Lasting Concealer to cover any spots or redress that might be showing through my foundation.
To cover all those awful black circles I have my Seventeen Phwoarr Paint Heavy Duty Concealer and it also doubles up as my mirror!

These are quite possibly my most important products (you will understand if you are a lip addict like me!). For summer I like to wear pinks and low maintenance lipsticks. My absolutely favourite lip product is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick. Here I have Peach Club but I will quite happily wear any of the colours in the range (I also secretly really want to buy all the colours in the collection). A new favourite is my Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Pink Velvet which is perfect for those smoky eye days. I pair the lipstick with Rimmel London Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner in eastend snob. In fact I sometimes so wear this lip liner on it's own if I want a super matte look.

So there is a peak into my work makeup bag. What are some of your essentials for your make up bag?
