Oh, and a note on the bag as it is the reason I thought to do this post at all; it is quite fancy pants but, fear not, it was an absolute steal amid the lacklustre and disappointing post-Christmas sales, a steal that was made all the more justifiable by being able to use a giftvoucher on it! I really love it and the little bit of luxury it gives to my everyday life and it'll be our little secret that it was heavily reduced so, shhh!
The pouch is quite roomy and I could easily cram all of my make-up for a weekend away in here with little effort. However, I try to keep the contents as purposeful as possible; What would I need for a touch-up? What would I need if a contact lens went rogue? and as usable as possible so, you can rest assured that whatever make-up is in this bag are products that I rate highly and know will see me through should I have a make-up emergency, last minute event to attend or become stranded on a desert island with just this bag!
While I have just pictured some of the contents below, I also carry a myriad of other necessities; bobby pins, hair bobbins, spare contacts, deoderant, plasters, headache pills, perfume etc. Seriously, if you're ever in a bind, come see me, I should be able to help!
