What's In My Make-up Bag?

Today I'm going to let you into one of my biggest secrets - what's in my make-up bag.  Although I will frequently leave the house without make-up and have no anxiety about that I never let anyone see the magic happening.  A girl's make-up bag is where all her mystery lies.  I'm a firm believer that putting on make-up should be done in private.  It's one of those things you should never do in public - a bit like peeing or making love.  I cringe when I see girls applying lipstick on public transport, at traffic lights or in restaurants.  NO.  Just don't.  I don't even apply it in front of my husband.  

Here is a list of what's currently in my make-up bag.  Some of these things are staple items that will always be there and others I'm just trying out.

The make-up bag itself is by Ted Baker and cost me around £10 in 2010.  It's pretty and just big enough to hold everything I need without having any extra space to encourage me to over-spend.

1. Free sample of Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation.

4. A sponge wedge for foundation application.  Essential.

10. Pencil sharpener.

12. Hair bands.  Another essential.

21. No. 7 Liplicious Moisturising Balm in Sherbert Twist (part of a Christmas gift set, not available individually)

24. Swarovski Ballpoint Pen - Because inspiration can strike even when you're making-up
