What's In My Current Makeup Bag?

Lately I have been enjoying reading what's in my makeup bag posts. I love having a nosey and seeing what people use on a daily basis. I have to admit I do switch up what I'm using every couple or weeks or so, as I tend to buy new products or find products in my makeup drawers which I have forgotten about.
The makeup bag I'm currently using is this gorgeous baby pink Ted Baker bag which my lovely mum bought for me a couple of Christmases ago. I have been using it ever since, taking it back and forth to my boyfriend's at the weekends and on trips away and it's still going strong!
Let's take a look inside...
Real Technique Brushes | I only seem to use RT brushes at the moment as I find they are the best at applying my makeup and are super soft. I currently use the powder brush to apply my powder, the expert face brush for applying my foundation, the contour brush to apply my blush and the base shadow brush for my eye shadow.
Primark Eyelash Curlers | I think these eyelash curlers cost me around a pound or so, I can't actually remember but they are great for the price. I don't tend to use them that often but it's nice to keep them in my bag when I feel like my eyelashes are misbehaving and not doing what they should i.e being nice and curled.
Collection Volumising 10x Extra Volume Mascara | This mascara is probably one of the newest products in my makeup bag. I think it cost me a mere £3.99 but it's such a lovely mascara. It gives me long voluminous eyelashes and separates them nicely, without looking too spidery.
MAC MSF In Natural | My beloved powder. You will always find a MSF in my collection somewhere. It has to be one of the best powders I have ever tried and will continue to use it for a long while to come. It sets my makeup well and I can even use it on it's own with just a bit of concealer to give me a more natural look. As you can see this one looks like it's on it's last legs but don't panic, of course I have a brand new one waiting to be opened!
Benefit Bella Bamba Blush | This is a blush that I have recently started to fall back in love with. It has been sitting in my makeup drawer feeling unloved and unwanted but I actually dug it out a couple of weeks ago and have rekindled my love with it. It's such a lovely peachy pink with a tiny hint of shimmer to give it that 3-D effect. I recently heard that this was being discontinued? Not sure if it was just a rumour or in fact true? If someone could enlighten me that would be great!
ELF HD Undereye Setting Powder | This setting powder is amazing under the eyes. It stops the concealer from creasing and helps it to last longer. It has an instant brightening effect which helps your under eyes look brighter and fades away those unwanted dark circles.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer In Light | This concealer is a bloggers fave and it's definitely a fave with me too. It covers well under the eyes and on any blemishes, redness you may have. It's quite a thick concealer so you only need a little bit but it blends well without looking cakey.
Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer | I have been loving this primer ever since I received a sample of it a couple of months ago. I ended up buying the full sized product and used it ever since. It's such a lovely smooth primer which helps with the application of my foundation and it does what it says on the bottle, it helps keep my foundation looking flawless for longer.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation In 52 | I recently mentioned this foundation in my April Favourites about how I always tend to come back to it after trying other foundations. It is definitely my go to foundation, as I feel it gives me a lovely coverage and the applies really nicely.
Benefit Gimmie Brow In Light/Medium | I seriously cannot live without this product. It is one of my favourite products for my eyebrows. It gives me full, neat looking eyebrows in seconds! Something every eyebrow lover should have in their makeup bags! You can read my full review here.
Soap and Glory Smoulder Kohl Eyeliner | My favourite eyeliner of all time is this gorgeous one by Soap and Glory. It's such a lovely creamy consistency and it claims to be waterproof and I have to agree, it stays on my waterline and tight line for ages, without smudging.
Urban Decay Naked Palette | The ever so popular Naked palette always has a place in my makeup bag as I feel it's such a nice neutral palette, perfect for the day time but also has amazing shades for the evening.

As you may of noticed I don't have any lip products in my bag. This is purely because I change my lip colour on a daily basis (even sometimes twice a day....crazy I know) and didn't have one in my makeup bag at the time I took the photos! But incase you are wondering, today I wore MACs lipstick in Coral Bliss.

What's in your current makeup bag?
