After showing you what's in my handbag I suppose it's time to reveal the 'mysteries' my makeup bag holds.
Truth be told, I kind of dislike wearing makeup. I don't mind applying it, it's the removing bit that irritates the c*! out of me and my skin. It took me a long, long time to walk straight past the makeup isle at my favourite drug store. There was a time I couldn't resist buying all those fancy shiny containers of rouge and blush and whatnot only to spend a fortune on something I never used.
Over the years my makeup routine has scaled back to bare essentials you see in this picture. If I were packing to go on holiday, this is the full extent of my makeup requirements: light coverage compact powder, mascara, eye pencil, eye shade, gloss, lip balm and one lip stick thrown in for good measure. And of course a quality eye makeup remover.
As you can see from the photo I practically never use the turquoise shade but the gold one has almost been used up. I've come to realize that the most important part of my routine involves a high quality mascara, eye makeup remover and a nice soft big brush to apply blush powder.
What is your makeup routine, dear readers? Do you keep it small and fuss free like me or do you prefer a makeup with more impact? I'd also love to hear what your brands are and the one makeup product you consider most important.
