What’s In My Mum’s Makeup Bag. Revisited

I wrote a pretty extensive guide to Mother’s Day beauty gifts last year so this year I will just post an updated version of what’s in my Mum’s makeup-bag.

My Mum doesn’t really wear makeup that much, and when she does she wants it to be quick, effortless and very easy. She will never be blending 5 eye shadows or mixing lipsticks together.

Pairs perfectly with the Ultimate Coverage Concealing Crème to conceal, correct and brighten the under eye area.”

Revlon ColorStay Under Eye Concealer Review and Swatches

When it comes to certain makeup products – I always go for high-end. This is  the way it was with concealer.

So I’ve got myself one in Light which was £7.5. So this is how it looks like

You get much more product, I’ve been using mine for some time already
