Here's a brief overview of its contents, some of which I change out regularly depending on what lip and eye products I am wearing on a particular day.
The two miscellaneous items that I keep in here are a compact mirror and Quickies Nail Polish Removal Pads. The mirror is from the MAC Venomous Villains collection and I got it for Christmas. It's brilliant little mirror because it's huge and has both a normal side and a magnified side. The Quickies are such a necessity because, while I love doing my nails as we all know, I literally cannot stand when they chip as I feel like my hands look really grubby so, I keep these with me to remove chipped polish as soon as it happens!
For my face I keep my YSL Touche Éclat which I have raved about before because I use it as a concealer, touch-up and highlighter when in a pinch. I also keep my MAC Blot Powder Pressed which I absolutely detest because it is SO powdery but, when you're stuck it works fine applied and blended with your fingers to get rid of shininess and to cover blemishes. My powder of choice is MAC MSF Natural but, because you need a brush to apply it, it's not really too handy to carry around.
In terms of eye products, I keep my Benefit Bad Gal Liner and Benefit Eye Bright in the bag constantly as they are brilliant for fixing yourself up and, while they aren't my favorite products of their type, they are grand for making yourself look respectable when you are out and suddenly find you have to meet someone or go for dinner. On a daily basis, I just throw in any other eyeliner that I have used for my make-up that day for touch-ups.
lip product junkie so, these are the products that my make-up bag tends to get stuffed full of if I'm not careful. I always keep a pot of Vaseline in the bag and then try to remember to change out my lip products for the day instead of just adding to the pile!
So, as you can see, my daily make-up bag is more about maintenance than about creating amazing looks but, when necessary, you can get by on very little and look respectable!
