Each member of the Beauty Spotlight team is giving you an insight into what lurks in our makeup bags.
This week its my turn so here are the items I keep in my handbag everyday:
They are housed in this little makeup bag
We will gloss over why I deemed this a suitable bag for a 32 year old....
I have a sample of Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Exceptional complete care cream: I think my Guerlain SA is ever hopeful that I'll buy the full size of this as she always gives me a sample when I buy from her. At around £250 for the full size this would have to be nothing short of spectacular for me to lay down that amount on one product and its not, but what it does do is really intensely hydrate the skin, even on rough areas, I therefore keep a sample in my bag should I notice any dry patches, also very useful on the nose area when you get a cold as its really takes down the sore, dry, redness.
I prefer to take a perfume with me to work rather than a body spray to freshen up should I feel the need, MAC Turquatic is a nice small size. I've been a fan of this scent for a while now, its a light fresh scent very suited to late Summer.
I have a Rouge Bunny Rouge mirror, this has taken a lot of knocks and across room lobs as my 3 year old boy has a thing about it and sometimes I can't get it off him quick enough. I am surprised it hasn't broken so I think its very robust, I love the design and that the mirror is quite big, one normal vision, one magnifying.
I rotate my lip colours, but at any given time I'll usually have three, you know just incase.. at the moment I'm clearly having a peachy/coral moment, swatched L-R: Fresh Sugar honey lip treatment, Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Fluttering Sighs, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Misia
Next up I have a Bobbi brown Face Touch Up Stick Alabaster, useful if I have any redness that appears during the day.
Tarte fRxtion natural sugar exfoliater & lip balm duo, my friend Jeanie sent me this. Its really nifty, one side is a sugar crystal exfoliater, one side a balm. I've used mine up a lot so I'll show how it looked all nice and new.
Finally my trusty Malin + Goetz lip moisturiser, it gives instant hydration and is very soothing I can put this on broken skin with no problem, I also use this on my little boy.
So there you have it, quite concise I think given my motherload of makeup! x
