My January Makeup Bag ft Charlotte Tilbury, Bare Minerals and Smashbox

This year actually marks 9 years since I started my blog. I can’t believe how fast time has gone and what I love about blogging is that it evolves with your life, as you’re the one in control. When I first started my blog I was 15 and doing my GCSE’s fast forward to now when I’ve completed a university degree and have a full time job it’s natural your interests change. I absolutely love all things beauty and so I thought it’s time to do a monthly post where you can see an insight into my make-up bag… hope you enjoy!




If you’re a 2-in-1-product lover you will adore this product from Smashbox. I have had this about 6 months now and I really love it. I think it’s great if you’re lacking hydration in your skin or if you are in a rush first thing in the morning and don’t have a lot of time to get ready.


Bare Minerals BarePro Foundation in the shade Pecan (18) - £29 from Boots
This foundation is seriously underrated in my opinion and it’s a foundation I absolutely adore. This is the newest foundation from Bare Minerals and this helps blur pores and imperfections. This is probably the most ‘natural’ looking foundation I own and it also lasts on my skin while I’m sweating in the gym too (winner!) The shade range in this foundation is super impressive too so you'll be sure to find your perfect shade.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Light/Warm Neutral - £19 from Feel Unique
This concealer and me have had a long-standing relationship of around 3 years now and It’s going to continue for a long time. I really like using this under my eyes and to highlight the more dull areas of my skin. If you’re looking for your new partner in crime when it comes to make-up, I’d go out and pick this ASAP.
Beauty Blender in Nude - £16 from Cult Beauty
I go through beauty blenders about once every 6 months and that’s with using them every day as eventually (they do dry up a bit!) however they are worth every single penny. I have used alternatives to the beauty blender and have never found anything else, which compares to the original!

I spoke about this duo in my last blog post and for good reason, they’re both incredible. I can’t wait to continue using these throughout January for a natural glowy look with carved out cheekbones thanks to the Hollywood contour wand!


I came across this mascara completely by accident and its absolutely INCREDIBLE. This mascara makes my lashes look super volumised and thickened at the same time. What I really like about this mascara is it doesn’t make my lashes look clumpy and doesn’t smudge either.

If you’re looking for the perfect toned nude, you’ll find it in this lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury. It’s one of my most used lipsticks in my collection and I never go anywhere with out it when it comes to an evening out.
 Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette - £60 from Charlotte Tilbury

Have you ever seen such a gorgeous looking palette?! This was a present from my other half for Christmas and I really love it. I am a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury and this eye shadow palette didn’t disappoint. What I love about this palette is it covers all occasions and is perfect for when you want to add a bit more glamour to a make-up look.
Smashbox Covershot Eye Palette in ABlaze - £24 from Boots
This palette from Smashbox I find is incredibly underrated in the beauty blogging world. It’s an absolute bargain and you can pick this up in your local Boots for just £24. I think the colours in the palette are super wearable and if you love warm toned palettes you need to pick this up ASAP. What I really like about this palette as well is that it’s so travel friendly as it takes up the smallest amount of space in my make-up bag.

Have you tried any of these products? What products do you have in your makeup bag?
