Current Everyday Makeup Bag

Parts of my everyday makeup bag contents change depending on the season. I change up my foundation most days, the same for my lip (although Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk is a big favourite) and blush colour (my current go to is from Benecos) so they’re not included in my list. Ofcourse though, there are a few staples I use all year round that make up my everyday makeup bag.

Everyday makeup bag must haves

I keep my everyday makeup in a bag by Christopher Vine Design. I like to have a large makeup bag because I pop brushes, foundation, blushes and lip products in too if I need to bring my bag out with me and those cute tiny makeup bags just do not have enough space for all my products!

Mac Strobe Cream

Everyday makeup bag must haves Mac Strobe cream

I’ve talked about this already in my holy grail products but I honestly couldn’t live without strobe cream! It’s hydrating for dry skin and gives your face a gorgeous louminous glow beneath your foundation. I always buy the travel size version as it’s actually more cost effective! I’m just about to change this well loved tube for a new one!

Mac Prep + Prime Transparent Setting Powder

This powder is what I put on top of foundation every day. It’s white but its not noticeable when dusted over the face. It takes all oil and shine away without being too heavy and clogging pores. I always pop this in my handbag when I’m out and about for touch ups. A top tip if you want to invest in this powder, to get it to last as long as possible, is to pierce the seal sticker five or six times with a pin rather than completly peeling it off. This means if you shake it, a little bit of powder comes out but not loads so it’ll last twice as long! Mine looks untouched and I’ve had it nearly two years now!

Everyday makeup bag must haves Mac Fix plus prep and prime

Mac Fix+

My favourite facial spray! I couldn’t live without this stuff. I spritz my face before I do my makeup to give it some extra hydration and I also use this after I’ve done my makeup to make sure my face doesn’t look too matte and powdery. I like to pop this in my handbag too and spritz my face throughout the day if it’s looking or feeling dehydrated.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil

This is my favourite brow pencil. Though recently the shade taupe has been looking a bit ashy so I might have to get one shade darker! I love it because it’s so quick and easy to use and it gives your brows a lovely natural look. It also has a spoolie on the other end which is very handy! I honestly prefer this to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and it’s much more affordable!

Everyday makeup bag must haves Mac Charlotte Tilbury

Lancome Hypnose Mascara

My go to mascara for the past few years. I have all the versions from this range. The original Hypnose is my everyday mascara, then I like to mix it up in the evenings and go for Doll Eyes or Drama. It doesn’t flake and lasts all day. It’s also really easy to remove which makes me happy as removing mascara is one of my pet hates.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow

Everyday makeup bag must haves Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze n glow

This is the palette of dreams. I lusted over this for years but I just had to give in and let me tell you, it is worth every penny of the £49 price tag! This is a pale girls dream bronzer. I have never tried a bronzer that looked so good. It’s perfect for contouring and bronzing, there’s no orange tone and its really buildable. The highlight gives a gorgeous lit from within glow. Another reason this is always in my makeup bag is for the mirror. It’s a really good sized magnifying mirror. I can do my whole face using this mirror if needs be.

Eyelash Curlers

Everyday makeup bag must haves eyelash curlers

The final thing I always have in my makeup bag are a set of eye lash curlers. I feel curling your eye lashes makes all the difference! Even if I’m not wearing mascara I always like to curl my lashes. It makes them more defined and makes your eyes look more open and awake.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what’s in my everyday makeup bag. Are any of these staples in your makeup routine? What are some of your favourite products?

    I 100% could not live without the mac Fix+ spray either! Such an amazing facial spray. Loved the products you featured in this post! x

      Oh you have to hun, they’re so good! Start with the travel sized tube of Strobe cream, it’ll honestly completely change the look and feel of how your foundation applies, a complete game changer in my opinion!

    Great post lovely, I am loving the MAC strobe cream at the moment! X

    Ohhhh I love every product here, but have to massivly high five the Charlotte Tilbury glam and glow, it is 100% the palette of dreams. I have never tried Mac strobe, but I have no idea why as I seem to try every blooming product! One for my list I think
    Great post x

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:25 am

      It’s just the best palette! I couldn’t be without mine, I use it everyday and I’ve even converted my mum into using it and she’s not remotely interested in makeup so that’s a pretty big thing!
      You should totally try Strobe cream, I think you’ll love it!

    I love seeing what other bloggers have in their makeup bags. I need to try out Nars concealer as I heard so many amazing things about it. x

      So do I! I think it’s the noseyness in me creeping out!
      The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is amazing! It’s so light weight yet has excellent coverage!

    That Charlotte Tilbury film star palette looks insane! 😍😍 I want it!

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:28 am

      You should totally treat yourself to it! You will not regret it!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:28 am

      You should definitely save up for it Lois or ask nice for it for Christmas or your birthday. It’s my favourite palette, I couldn’t be without it!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:29 am

      I love noseying at what other people use too! The Lancôme mascaras are really great, well worth looking in to!

  7. July 24, 2017 / 5:10 pm

    Never heard of half of these but they all sound good, especially the Mac Fix+ Spray, thanks for sharing.
    At the moment, my everyday make up routine includes my Naked palette, mascara from Tomy Moly (Korean brand which is amazing!!) and a mini eyebrow kit – very minimal but don’t wear anything on the face like foundation anymore so stick to these 3 things!

    Abs x

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:31 am

      Mac Fix+ is amazing! It honestly the best spray for instant hydration!
      I’m actually yet to own a naked palette so I’m very jealous! I’ll have to look into Tomy Moly! Thanks to introducing me to them!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

  8. July 24, 2017 / 5:22 pm

    I’m a fan of the Lancome Hypnose mascara too, I’ve honestly never found a better mascara. It makes your lashes like falsies in one swipe almost!

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:32 am

      Yes exactly! It’s amazing and I love the fact they have all the different version with different brushes to create different effects!

      It’s so frustrating that Mac still aren’t cruelty free!
      The CT palette is amazing! Honestly think I’ll never find a better bronzer!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

  10. July 24, 2017 / 5:30 pm

    I absolutely must try that setting powder — right now I use a spray and really haven’t been that impressed. I hate when my makeup starts to run, so it seems like a must-have! That brow pencil sounds awesome, too!


    • July 25, 2017 / 1:33 am

      It’s a really great settling powder and I’m so impressed with how long it’s lasting! Well worth investing in!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

  11. July 24, 2017 / 5:31 pm

    Have never tried the Mac setting spray, feel like I’m missing out!

    Carla x

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:35 am

      You should definitely try Fix+! It’s not actually a setting spray, more a fixing spray to help remove any powderyness and make your makeup look flawless/blend with your skin. Well worth trying!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

      • July 25, 2017 / 8:51 am

        That sounds interesting…might have to pick it up at some point!

  12. July 24, 2017 / 5:34 pm

    The NARS concealer has been on my wishlist for the looongest time!! I never seem to have a spare £20-odd quid lying around though, but it looks so fabulous!

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:35 am

      It’s such a great concealer, it’s been my favourite for years and one I think I’ll always repurchase. You should ask for it for Christmas or your birthday!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

  13. July 24, 2017 / 6:01 pm

    I love the Mac prep+prime collection it’s brilliant!

  14. July 24, 2017 / 6:16 pm

    Great post! I can’t wait to get my NYX Micro Brow pencil – I have a feeling it’s going to become my everyday brow tool as well! 😊

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:36 am

      It the handiest little thing and so perfect that it has a spoolie on one end! Looking forward to hearing what you think of it!

    That bronze and glow looks fantastic, definitely the colours that I go for! I’ve also been looking for a new eyebrow pencil so will keep an eye out for the one you’ve shown! :’)

    Well, to be honest, I’m totally jealous of your make up bag.
    I truly need to up my makeup game but I have no idea where to start.
    I’m just a foundation, blush, and mascara girl then I’m out the door.
    What would you recommend from one pale girl to another? Lol!

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:40 am

      Haha thank you Bre! Honestly I have faaar too many products but it’s an obsession, what can you do?! Lol
      Even add a little bronzer/highlighter to your routine? The CT palette looks pricey but for how long it’ll last you I think it’s totally worth it! You can even use the bronzer to blend through your crease as an easy everyday eyeshadow!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

    The Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow has been on my wishlist for so long! xo

      Just splurge and get it! I promise you will not regret it!

    The only one of these products that I have used before is the Strobe Cream & it is definitely one of those products you should always have to hand for when your skin is looking a little dull or tired.

    Emma |

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:42 am

      Yes definitely! Strobe cream gives your face such a lift! I like to use it even on makeup free days to keep my skin hydrated and glowy!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

  21. July 24, 2017 / 9:21 pm

    I want the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow sooo much! I’ve never owned any Mac products either, but the prep and prime setting powder looks great! X

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:44 am

      It’s the best palette, I think it’ll be my favourite for years to come!
      The setting powder is amazing! I really think it doesn’t get enough hype!

      You should definitely try it Chloe! It’s so affordable and so easy to use!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

  23. July 25, 2017 / 12:35 am

    I definitely have to try the NYX Micro Brow Pencil now, especially as you mentioned that Taupe is quite ashy. I love the ABH Brow Wiz but medium brown sometimes comes across a bit too warm for my liking. I love MAC’s Strobe Cream too!

    Kerry xo |

    • July 25, 2017 / 1:45 am

      Honestly the NYX Brow Pencil is so much better than the ABH pencil in my opinion and so much more affordable, you should definitely give it a try! Let me know what you think if you do!
      PaleGirlRambling xo

    • July 25, 2017 / 9:28 am

      It’s one of my favourites! You should get it out and give it another go!

  25. July 25, 2017 / 6:20 pm

    Some great products, I can’t believe I still haven’t MAC Fix +, I think I need to pick it up alongside a strobe cream at some point. The CT Film Star Bronze and Glow is another product I would love to try.

    oh I think I’m going to have to try that bronzer, I’m so bad at being a girl lol I very rarely use make up everyday, great post x

  29. July 25, 2017 / 8:02 pm

    Oh my goodness that’s such a good idea for loose powder!!! I’d never thought of that. Thanks 🙂 lovely post! My current must-haves are Estée Lauder double wear, urban decay finishing speay, benefit’s roller Lash, and ant Colourpop lippie haha!

    I feel like the only person that hasn’t tried the NARS concealer, I think it has to be my next buy!

  32. July 25, 2017 / 11:30 pm

    Love this! I have wanted the strobe cream for ages now but for some reason never taken the plunge?! Also, the Hypnose mascara… wow that stuff is incredible! xx

  33. July 26, 2017 / 12:09 pm

    It is so interesting to see what other people use on a daily basis. I LOVE CHARLOTTE TILBURY! and I always find that eyelash curlers are an essential, you don’t realise how much difference they make to your eyelashes until you use them for a couple of days. I love all of the brands you have mentioned, although some of the products I haven’t tried so it was nice to read about that you thought of them

  34. July 26, 2017 / 4:19 pm

    LOVE Mac Fix+, was such a life changer when I gave in and bought it, my skin has never looked so glowy but also matte! I’ve heard a lot of good things about NYX brow products too, will have to invest soon as I literally don’t do anything to my brows at the moment!

  41. August 1, 2017 / 12:13 pm

    Love that idea for the translucent powder and piercing the seal!! Never thought of that

  42. August 2, 2017 / 1:44 pm

    Great post! I’ll have to try the NYX Micro Brow Pencil because ABH is pretty expensive, although I love their products. Do you use anything else with the brow pencil? Like a gel?

  43. August 8, 2017 / 4:04 pm

    The way you take pictures inspired me to take mine similarly. I love how you put everything in position for the wide shot of all the products and then while they’re in that order go in and take the individual pictures. Am I making any sense? Probably not. But I had to sift through the posts I’ve liked just to tell you thank you, ’cause I love how my pictures are turning out for my posts. You may have answered this before and if so, I’m sorry, but what do you use to edit your photos, if anything?

  44. August 8, 2017 / 10:11 pm

    I should deff invest in the Mac Fix +! I really loved the urban decay setting spray, and right now I’m using the Marc Jacobs one. I guess the next time mine runs out, I’ll deff be trying the Mac one! xxx
