I love watching the whats in my bag tag on youtube and reading about what people keep in their bags on blogs, so I thought I would do the tag myself! I don't actually keep a lot of things in my bag, as a lot of the time it is full with University work but I do have a few essentials that I have to keep in there at all times! So, here's what I have in my bag at the moment!
I switch my bags up a lot, but the one I am using right now is from River Island. I picked this up last summer for £44.99 and it has been my staple over sized summery bag. It has an arm strap, as well as a detachable shoulder strap and is pretty large which suits my needs perfectly. The pattern is a floral print with rose and yellow flowers on a black background, which is great for the summer months.
So here is the contents of my bag in a bit more detail;
Firstly I have my phone, with my new cute bunny case (which I have done a another post about)
I then keep my purse in my bag. The purse I am using right now is from Primark and I believe was around £5. It is a rich brown colour and has the same strap detailing as the bag.
In here, I have all my cards (debit card, boots card, driving license etc) and any cash and shop vouchers I have.
I then have my makeup bag, a small colourful bag with a bow and zip detailing on a tie die like pattern from Ted Baker. I got this last year in Boots for around £10 and although I don't think you can still find this exact one in Boots, there are similar versions.
In this makeup bag I keep a few of my essential makeup items which I use to touch up during the day. Firstly, I have Soap and Glory's 'Hand Food', which is my favourite hand cream ever. I love the Soap and Glory scent, and this leaves my hands feeling moisturised throughout the day.
I then have my daily foundation, Clinique's Superbalanced Makeup in the shade Beige Chiffon. I love this foundation, especially for summer, as it gives good coverage without feeling or looking heavy. (I have a seperate blog post on this foundation if you would like to read a bit more about it)
I have my Mac Studio Finish Concealer in NC30. I love this concealer, it covers any blemished or redness without looking cakey and stays on all day.
I also keep my blotting powder in there, Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder int he shade 001 Transparent. As I have oily skin, I like to carry powder round with me in case I need to mattify and touch up my skin a little during the day. I love this powder for this and it is a bargain £3.99!
Lastly, I have 3 lip products. The Figs and Rouge balm in Rambling Rose which I recieved in last months Glossybox, which I apply to my lips before doing my makeup in the morning and before I go to bed at night, as well as through the day when my lips are feeling a little dry. I really love this lipbalm, it stays on well and is very moisturising.
The second lip product I have is Mac's Angel lipstick which is a shade I love for everyday wear. It is a frost finish and a soft pink colour that gives a natural look to the lips.
On top of this, I like to wear No7 Liplicious Moisturising Balm Lipgloss in the shade 'Marshmallow', which in the tube looks pretty pink, but when applied to the lips comes out fairy clear with a nice glossy finish which looks lovely on top of Angel!
Like I said, I switch up both my bag and the contents of my bag ALOT, but these are my essentials at the moment :)
Hope you enjoyed looking inside my bag; Whats In your bag?!
