Make Up Touch Up Essntials

Ferne Cotton Make Up Bag, Sleek Contour Kit, Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder, MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer, L'Oreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss, YSL Faux Cils Mascara & Sigma Large Powder Brush.

I apply my make up at 7:30am and arrive back home at 5:15pm (earliest!) so as you can imagine throughout the day my face needs a little touching up! I love seeing whats in peoples "touch up" bags, it's super interesting! These are the basics I bring out with me in my make up bag, I don't really feel the need to lug around a full face make up bag when in reality I'm only gonna be touching up.

I'll start off with the more "base" products. I ALWAYS religiously have concealer in my make up bag especially when I've got a nasty spot, I find it really cleans up my make up when touching up with a bit of concealer. I opt for Studio Sculpt mostly as I love it's constancy and find it blends super fast into the skin with no fuss. I also almost always need my face powder! At the moment I'm loving using this Bourjois one which I've previously reviewed although my favorite of choice would have to be the stupidly expensive Laura Mercier loose powder. I without a doubt wear bronzer everyday and find the Sleek Contour Kit most convenient for touch ups. I apply all the powder products with my Sigma Large Powder which is in travel size so perfect to pop in the make up bag!

For my eyes I only need my two loves- eyeliner and mascara. After applying powder I can sometimes find your lashes go a bit grey where the powders fallen so I always love to carry around a good mascara. I've been using the YSL Faux Cils for touch ups recently as I really want/need to use it up. Of course my chosen eyeliner is the famous L'Oreal Super Liner it really couldn't possibly be anything else! This is fab for touch ups, usually if I want to do liquid/gel liner I opt for my Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in the morning but this is fab for touching up if I get a smudge or crack!

So they are all my touch up essentials! I guess it's kind of a safety net in a way to carry a make up bag around with you as you never know what might occur! 

Hope you're all well!
