What’s Inside My Mother-In-Law’s Makeup Bag

I have featured “inside my Mum’s makeup bag” a few times, and while I definitely have to post an updated version, I thought it would be fun to show which products my husband’s Mum uses. To be honest, I almost never read about celebrity’s makeup bags but I am always curious to see what family and friends love.

So here we go:

Just like my Mum, my Mother-in-Law likes a good base, a cheek/face product, a lipstick and a mascara. Just the shades are different, as they have a different colouring.

You can see two primers: No7 Colour Calming Primer (from Boots) and Clinique Superprimer Universal Face Primer (here).

Speaking of Clinique,

Makeup & Beauty Products for Two Weeks Away

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I am currently away for the second week. Unfortunately, I am busy from dusk till dawn but I do appreciate the productive working time.

Here is a sneak preview of what I’ve packed makeup and beauty wise with me. I was very strict with myself, and limited it all to one (no7 Boots)  travel makeup bag.

Here is what makeup I had with me. All products from my current top 5  luxury makeup favourites post, a lot of Rouge Bunny Rouge products, as I plan to write a feature for the brand soon,  three blushes (I ended up using only tarte) and three lip shades, inducing my Tom Ford lipstick.

Face Of The Day. September 2013

Today I’ve decided to keep my makeup minimal, as I will spend most of my time (and money, le segh) choosing the items for my home makeover.

So here is the makeup that I’ve used:
Face Of The Day Rouge Bunny Rouge Benefit No7 Ellis Faas AnastsiaAnd there are quite a few Rouge Bunny Rouge products as I am currently working on one feature for them, I will let you know when it’s done, for sure.

Face

I’ve started with the brand’s Aqua Primer, it has a lovely light texture that smooths the face and doesn’t clog the pores. Then I have applied Benefit’s Erase Paste under the eyes which is brilliant for counteracting the blue tones. I have finished off with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte. It has a medium coverage and feels light on the skin. I don’t usually use powders but am experimenting with some at the moment.

To give myself some glow, I have dabbed Benefit’s High Beam  on the cheek bones, under the brow bone, above the upper lip and on the bridge of the nose.  From

Fall 2013 Berry Lip Products Guide

It’s the season when berry lips are IN!  And  I couldn’t be happier, as I am a huge fan.

I already did a feature with my personal favourite berry lip products and here is a little selection  of the berry-ish lip products that just came out for Autumn/Winter.

Berry-Lips-for-fall-2013-with-Stila-No7-and-BiteStila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss

I have tried Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and it is amazing so, I guess, the new glosses should be great, as well. I have chosen  Merlot Vinyl – berry wine and Fuchsia Vinyl – raspberry purple. But there are a lot of other, including nude, shades.
