What's In My Makeup Bag | November

Happy Monday beauties! Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend!
As temperatures started to climb this November with Summer not being too far away, my makeup routine has gone from full coverage to barely there. So here is a look at what products I've been carrying with me in my makeup bag this month.

I've been really loving the finish that Rimmel's #Insta Flawless leaves on my skin - it looks naturally radiant and perfected. Very similar to a BB cream in terms of coverage, but it works beautifully as a primer for your foundation when you're wanting an added glow. I like using this skin tint on lazy makeup days, but more so during the warmer months because of how ultra lightweight the formula is.

Lately I've been having a thing for lip glosses so when I'm not wearing my much loved NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses, I reach for the Max Factor Lipfinity Colour + Gloss in 'Shimmering Pink.' Once I fill in my lips with the colour, I then add a small amount of the shimmering gloss to the center of my lips so they appear fuller. It never feels sticky or heavy so it's quite comfortable to wear all day long, and surprisingly has good staying power. It's just one of those lip products that you throw in your makeup bag as it's SO fuss free.

A very hyped and affordable concealer in the beauty world is L.A. Girl's Pro Conceal. It covers everything incredibly well without having to pile it on and it blends like a dream! They have a such wide range of shades to choose from so you can use their concealers to highlight, contour and even colour correct any discolouration. 100% recommend them, and you just can't go wrong for $8! 

Their hasn't been a single product by Zoeva that I haven't adored - their Luxe Color Blush being one of them. 'Shy Beauty' is this gorgeous warm toned muted peach that is such a universal shade. The pigmentation is outstanding so you don't need much at all when applying, and the texture is velvety soft. If you're new to the brand I'd say to go for their eyeshadow palettes, you'll be blown away by the quality just like I was!

I featured the Wake Me Up mascara by Rimmel in my Five Minute Face and I'm a really big fan of it. What I like most about it is the fresh cucumber scent, which is probably the reason why it's the only mascara I've been using for the past couple of months. The formula is more wet so it doesn't give me a whole lot of volume, but it does separate my lashes very nicely without any sort of clumping. 

The last makeup product that I have been carrying in my makeup bag is one that you may have seen me rave about - the Bare Minerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo. This little compact holds a silky matte and glow powder that I love to use for my day to day makeup. The matte powder sets my makeup in place and absorbs any oil that may have risen to the surface during the day, and the glow powder just adds a sheer luminosity to the complexion without looking over the top. It's definitely been one of my favourite makeup purchases thus far.
