Last week I started my first week of college,I've had to try to get used to my new surroundings over the past week, I haven't really been around the blogging world last week but now I know a little bit of what to expect and am starting to settle in a bit gradually I think I can find the balance of everything, including blogging!
I've found that to school I don't wear as much makeup as I thought I would,I did for the first day or two but to be honest I think I'm just too lazy to do too much in the morning so things like eyeshadow and liner I haven't worn a lot so far, however I know during the day I need to top up my makeup a bit to get rid of that shine and give me some colour.
With all the other essentials I need with me for school I think a compact small makeup case is vital, this one is from Primark and it fits everything I need easily leaving room in there too, it slips nicely into my school bag without any nuisance. I've also seen in Urban Outfitters they have some pretty cute make up cases recently, and Topshop usually do some nice ones in the A/W time if you're looking for a new one.
Content of the makeup bag:
Elf Flat top Powder Brush
Elf Blush Brush
Illamasqua 'Katie' Blush
Maybelline Fit Me Powder
MAC 'Offshoot' Lipstick
Lip Liners 'Spice' by Rimmel London and 'Nude' by No 7
Muji Eyelash curlers
Mint Chewing Gum
These are the items that you can find in my makeup bag, I usually also have a mini perfume from The Body Shop in 'Coconut' or a small deodorant but I seem to have lost both of these over the weekend..(hmm)
I would highly recommend all these specific products but also recommend using them as a guideline of what to bring, even though I'm sure you don't need 3 lip shades, I seem to just chuck them into my bag and go and collect them all in the makeup bag!
I hope this post was useful to you or was just something nice to read!
