Last year I saw lots of people sharing what their makeup bag would look like if they weren’t a beauty blogger. I loved reading those post, it’s so interesting to see what being a beauty blogger introduces you too. So here’s my predicted makeup bag if I wasn’t a blogger.
Starting off with a primer, I used to always use the *Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (hydrating). I tend to use it if I had a big event like my wedding day, but I loved how it created a perfect base for foundation. You can go wrong with Laura Mercier primers, especially when they have added hydration.
For foundation, I use to solely use the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. I only really went to boots for my makeup and I remember trying this in-store and loving it. I really like how buildable and light this foundation is, it was also my perfect skin colour match. It’s also one of the only foundations I found didn’t oxidise over the day.
For concealer, I think the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer would be my top pick. It’s a lovely drugstore concealer that provides a gorgeous amount of coverage will brightening under the eyes. To be honest even today I sometimes use this concealer. There’s just something about it that I haven’t found in another liquid concealer.
If I wanted to use a blush or bronzer I think I would be using the *Rimmel London Sculpting Palette in 002 Coral Glow. I used to use this palette all the time, especially the blush as it was a gorgeous soft blush shade. I have a feeling I would have dabbled in using bronzer and highlighter but not used it all the time. This palette is powder-based, which works so naturally over the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. A great little palette.
For eyeshadow, I think the Revolution Ultra Professional Eyeshadow Beyond Flawless would be my only palette. Firstly the colour selection in this palette is gorgeous, I love a good subtle eye or brown smokey eye. The quality of this eyeshadow is so nice, such a great drugstore purchase. The packaging is so nice too, but it is a huge palette packed full of matt and shimmery shades. With regards to Mascara, I don’t think I would really wear it as I used to hate taking mascara off. Since I became a blogger I’ve found some amazing cleansers that melt away mascara so I now use it all the time.
I think even if I wasn’t a beauty blogger I would have a mini addiction to lipsticks. I love a good nude lip and I don’t think that will ever change. As we are now wearing masks all the time I think my current favourite lipstick would be the *NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes. This would have been a very different purchase for me and I think I would have mainly stuck to shine lipsticks.
So that what I think my makeup bag would look like if I wasn’t a blogger. I’d love to know what you think your favourite products would be. I found this post so interesting to write, it made me realise how without blogging I wouldn’t have found so many incredible brands and products.
