Beauty | What's in my Handbag Makeup Bag?

Today's post is all about my emergency touch-up kit that fits nicely into the abyss I call my handbag. It's not something I would carry around everyday and it certainly lacks the depth of a travel makeup kit (but more on that later in the week), this is the sort of thing I would take with me on a day-trip or to an interview where I either know my makeup isn't likely to last the day, or when I know I need to look good.

Makeup Bag (Atmosphere at Primark)
This teeny clashing clutch is about the same size as my hand, it holds a surprising amount and only costs a few pounds from Primark so it doesn't matter if the occasional makeup leakage or explosion occurs.

E.L.F Maximum Coverage Concealer
I didn't have room for both a concealer and a foundation so I decided to opt for the essential. The linklihood is that I'll already have on my day's makeup and this kit is for those all important touch ups and disaster aversions. E.L.F's Maximum Coverage Concealer is a firm favorite in the beauty world, it's light enough to use under my eyes but provides that all-important coverage.

Sleek Blush in Life's A Peach
Lately I have become besotted with peachy-coral tone blushes and Sleek's Blush in Life's A Peach fits the bill. Whilst terrifying tin the pan you get a subtle, matte pop of colour that brighten up any makeup look.

P.S Love Blush Brush
After Primark launched P.S Love I was skeptical, but ended up in awe over their cheap and cheerful nail sets. So when they recently launched their new duo-tone brushes I threw caution to the wind and jumped in with both feet purchasing (almost) the entire range. For the price of £1-£3 their brushes are soft and silky, though I have yet to see how they fair with shredding, washing and long-term use. This blush brush makes applying blush, powder, highlighter or even bronzer a breeze whilst on-the-go.

P.S Love Kol Liner
For quick waterline touch ups - need I say more?

Makeup Revolution Disappear Til Tomorrow Eyeshadow & Eyebrow Palette
At first, I was a little disappointed at the size of this product. At just £4 you really can't complain but after falling in love with their Iconic range I was left wanting, well, more. That was until I realised that this palm-sized palette would make the perfect travel edition. Packed with 14 neutral eyeshadows - a combination of matte and shimmery including some darker shades to spice up your makeup in the evenings, two brow powders, a sponge applicator and angled brow brush - it's perfects for quick touch ups and makes for a great day-to-night transition palette.

Oriflame Wonderlash Mascara*
A favourite of mine, it's got a volumising and a lengthening side to the wand so you can easily achieve the desired lash effect. Whilst not waterproof it holds its own throughout the day and can easily be removed by a little cleanser at night.
