I don’t know about you, but I haven’t sorted my make up bag out in years, so I decided to do it this weekend. I was so shocked at how nasty some of the old eyeshadows were, I revamped my entire make up bag. Is it about time you did the same? Old make up can be really bad for your skin, and no one wants to carry more then they need, so here’s my list of the top ten things you need in your make up bag...
1. A foundation brush

I must admit, I’ve always applied my foundation with my fingers. I don’t wear it often, so when I do, I just grap a fingerful and rub it in! And I thought it looked fine... until I tried using a brush! Surprisingly, the right brush will give you the most natural look possible, and make sure you get just the right amount of foundation too. It also means your foundation is always the same thickness!
2. A concealer brush

Again, I’ve always just used my fingers, but using a tiny sable concealer brush really does hide your imperfections! If you suffer with under eye circles, a brush with a narrow tip will hide them easily, and make sure you have full and even coverage. Perfect after all those late nights!

Hands up, who carries around a bronzer? Well you should! If all else fails, bronzer is an easy way to update your daytime look for a night out, and it’s also perfect for hiding your cheeks if you start to blush!
