What's in my makeup bag | By Carrie from 'what I love today'

Guest post featuring Carrie who writes the awesome blog, www.whatilovetodayx.co.uk Carrie is a make up artist with a particular interest in natural and organic beauty. I absolutely love carries blog, it's full of tips and tricks and she's a make up addict like me so I always know ill find something new to try when I have a read. She really knows her stuff and I totally wish she lived nearer to me so she could come over and do my make up all the time! I definitely want to try the Dr hauschka palette featured in today's post it looks perfect. Head over to Carrie's blog to find out whats in my make up bag.





I like nothing more than a good rummage in other people's makeup bags! Eloise and I thought it would be a good idea to share the contents of ours on each other's blog.


There are a few products that stay in my everyday make-up kit throughout the year and others that come and go. This is what I'm currently loving....

RMS Un Cover-Up // This is a bit of a cult product in the green beauty world and one that took me some time to get on board with. I am now finishing my second pot! I find this a great concealer for my more mature skin as it's very easy to blend. I don't usually have blemishes to cover, but do have areas of darkness and some uneven skin tone, which this works perfectly to correct. I have shade 11.

Living Nature Foundation // This is a base I always come back to. I find using it with a drop of moisturiser works well as it does dry very quickly making it harder to blend. The colour Sand is a great match for my skin tone and I find this lasts longer than lots of other natural foundations.

Living Nature Luminous Pressed Powder // This is the best pressed powder I have used. It eliminates shine without making your skin look dull and lifeless. I have shade medium (don't be put off my how dark this looks in the pan).


Avril Cosmetics Eye Shadow // I actually use the shade Desert as a powder highlighter (it does work well as an eye shadow too)! At £5.45 it is amazing value and leaves my skin with a gorgeous glow. This is particularly good for an evening look.

Avril Cosmetics Blush // Another great value, great performing product from Avril Cosmetics. The shade Rose Nacre gives my cheeks a natural, fresh, healthy flush of colour which is easy to blend. I think I have at least three shades!

Zao Organic Eyeliner // As you can see this is a favourite of mine - there's not much left! This is my go-to eyeliner. It is jet black and easy to apply (no dragging), but still manages to stay put. I have tired other brands, but nothing has knocked this off the top spot for me.



Dr Hauschka Eye Shadow Palette // This is my all time favourite palette; it is so versatile! An all matte neutral palette where you can create both a natural look for daytime or a smoky eye for a night out. You can see how well used this is and I would not hesitate to recommend. I could not be without this!

Green People Volumising Mascara // I have discovered a few favourite natural mascaras; this one from Green People is one of them. It doesn't smudge underneath my eyes (a problem I had with most mascaras) and does a great job of emphasising my lashes. I have this in Black, but it also comes in Brown/Black.

La Bella Donna Lip Liner // I picked this up in the shade Dusty Rose from the Detox Market when I was in LA in the summer. It is the perfect shade for my lips and I often wear this on it's own. It isn't drying and can last a good few hours without needing to reapply.

Lavera Glossy Lips // Sometimes there's only time for a slick of mascara and some lip gloss - this has been one of my favourites recently. Lavera is a brand you can often find in your local health store at a reasonable price.

I always have a pencil sharpener and eyelash curlers in my makeup bag. Curling your lashes can really help to open up your eyes and a sharp lip pencil makes all the difference to creating a perfect pout.
