The Beauty Bag with Abbie

Since the start of Winter, I’ve been working on a new series where I look into one of my friend’s makeup bags every month and share everything with you. I think Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup beat me to it back in January (well, I’m actually writing this in the start of January so only two days ago for me – how organised) so I’m sure you’re all well aware of how this series will work. Today, though, we’re looking in Abbie’s makeup bag who you might remember as being in my July/August Favourites video last year and my Non-Beauty Favourites video back in January. So, without any further ado; Abbie – take it away…
“I’m pretty lucky that I have clear skin most of the time so I don’t usually wear foundation apart from in the winter. When I do, I like to wear the Max Factor Whipped Crème foundation in Light Ivory. I love this product because it just rubs in with ease and keeps my skin looking flawless. On top of that, I wear the Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze. I love this so much; I wear it all the time and have never changed brands and because I don’t wear foundation, this is my main complexion product. So that my bronzer goes on smoothly, I like to moisturise first with the Garnier Moisture Match for Normal Skin. I know some people don’t like these, but I wear the yellow one and love it! It illuminates my face and gives a soft complexion.

If I do have any blemishes, I like to use the Rimmel Match Perfection Illuminating Concealer in Ivory. I feel it gives me full coverage and lasts well. The only thing I would say is to apply it with a bigger brush rather than the one it comes with to get a higher coverage. Now that my face is pretty much covered, I open my Benefit box (‘A Groovy Kind-a Love’) and put Benetint on my cheeks and mouth. I like to use Benetint more as a base on my lips rather than an actual lipstain because it’s not as dark as I like my lips to be. Then on top of the Benetint on my cheeks, I put the blush combo of Dandelion and ‘Gimme Blush’.

I have pretty sensitive eyes so I don’t really wear any eye shadow or liner. I just like to wear either the They’re Real mascara from Benefit (which is included in the box), or the Maybelline Mega Plush Volum’ Express mascara. Both of these make my eyelashes appear longer, more voluminous and never irritate my eyes which is a big win!

For lips, well, that’s a big decision as I am the Queen of lipsticks! My favourite brands are Rimmel, L’Oreal and Topshop. I love deep purples, rich reds and popping pinks. The colour I wear depends on what kind of mood I’m in and outfit I’m wearing but it’s very unlikely you will catch me without lipstick. My favourites I’ve included are Topshop Lip Bullet in Bewitched, Kate for Rimmel in 001 and the Rimmel Moisture Renew in As You Want Victoria (360).

To finish, I like to use Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf – one of my favourite Christmas presents.”
