New makeup bag post had to come as so much have changed recently when it comes into bag itself and the contents of it. When most of the hot summer, we luckily can enjoy in Estonia, I don't wear any makeup at all, there are always chillier night times and days you need little bit of something to look alive. During those days I usually reach for highlighting concealer (no heavy coverage concealer for me during summer), mascara and blusher. Base products have changed completely and not because I wouldn't love the ones I used before, but mostly because of the colour change of my tan I have gotten. Also, the benefit of getting your tan on saves you from need to apply makeup in general. 

So, without further ado, let me introduce you to my new Balmain clutch that I use as a makeup bag. It holds so much and looks beautiful. Side pocket can be used for smaller things or makeup tools like travel brushes, lash curlers, tweezers, cotton buds etc.




Base products

L'oreal Nude Magique BB Cream in 'Light' that I bought during winter time, but because of the shade of it started using it just now. It is supposed to be for light skin tones, yet looks really dark in my opinion. Too dark for lighter complexions anyway. It performs amazingly though - evens out the skin's texture and tone, hydrates and gives a healthy glow to the skin. I also love the fact that the cream transforms in contact with the skin and changes its colour from pale lilac to the actual shade.

Living Nature Foundation in 'Pure Sandis an award winning natural liquid foundation that performs like a dream. It is a lightweight mineral foundation that gives a even and flawless coverage on days you need more than just a BB-cream. It has also benefits of skincare with caring vitamins and healing Manuka oil. Coverage wise it has a medium coverage, but is very buildable. Skin will be quite matte, yet healthy and fresh.


Royal Effem Bright & Bronze Mineral Powder has been my staple since my last makeup bag post. I still love my The Body Shop Honey Collection Bronzer, but this one has been better since I am darker than usual. It is so fine, silky and as the slightest amount of golden sheen in it that shows up on skin like a warm iridescence glow. My shades name is 'Rosa del Deserto Warm' and it really is a perfect warm shade that is really natural and compliments my own tan. I have also been using it on my eyelids to get a natural warm eyelid without any unnecessary and time consuming blending.

Mesauda Diamond Blush in 'Beyonce' is a new find for me and I couldn't be happier with it. It is a baked blush in peachy coral shade that compliments warmer skin tones and brightens up the lighter ones. I had been looking for a perfect coral shade ages and finally found it. Its warm base and dewy iridescence doubles as a blusher and a highlighter giving the complexion and overall makeup look the most polished feeling. Amazing find!


Shiseido Face Color Enhancing Trio is a perfect yet most luxurious thing to use when you are in a hurry or just don't want to spend a lot of time doing your makeup. It hides three products in a sleek compact along with the high quality brush, perfect for shading, highlighting and applying blusher. When there would be just one product available for me to use, it would be this face trio. I can use it as a blusher, bronzer, highlighter, but also master the eyeshadow application and end up with perfectly tone to tone natural makeup. Perfect when going somewhere and popping it into purse.


Eye products

Senna Cosmetics Glow Eye Colors in 'Gordovan' and 'Coppertina' are my eyeshadow choices when I choose to wear one. They can be worn alone separately or together. Both shades harmonise perfectly as they have warm brownish bronze bases with the finest sheen to them. They go on smooth and are rather easy to blend with absolutely zero fallout.

Avon Eyeshadow Primer is very affordable, yet good primer to keep your eyeshadow where it  should supposed to be. I love the fact it is beige and also conceals any discoloration around the eyes to give your eyeshadows a chance to be opaque without any struggle. It is creamy, not drying on gentle eye area and little bit goes very long way.


Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara that gives amazingly long and voluminous curled lashes. The black shade is also blackest I have seen and that adds even more drama. Perfect mascara for the days when you want more from your lashes than just being pretty and naturally separated. The original and curved brush makes the application and lash perfecting very easy.

Max Factor Masterpiece Max High Volume & Definiton Mascara for defined and voluminous lashes. As I don't really need a length when it comes to my lashes, I always choose a volumising ones. This mascara is something that separates, defines and last so long without smudging. It won't give so much oomph as the Dior one gives, but still is a good one on a daily basis. Rubber wand is also easy to work with even though I usually avoid rubber mascara wands. This one does the justice for itself!

Artdeco Eye Brow Powder in 'Medium' is also a staple product. It has the perfect shade for natural brows, not too ashy or red. For the longest time I preferred the pencil, but now I believe in a brow powder as it stays on longer, seems more natural. This specific powder makes the brow filling process so easy and fast, it has to be and stay as a staple! 


Lip products

Maybelline Color Whisper in 'Pink Possibilities' is a balm like lip shade to give moisturised and smooth lips with a hint of natural colour. To a product like this, the pigmentation is quite good and rich. 'Pink Possibilities' is a perfect juicy bubble gum pink with the hint of berry shades in it. It warms up any complexion. Extremely great to wear in the summer.

L'oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color in 'Rose Melody' is a recent buy and I love it. It is a liquid form of a lipstick, but really seems to be like a opaque lip gloss to me. Usually when you are looking for colour payoff like that, you have to expect stickiness of a gloss. But not with this one. It is really comfortable and hydrating on lips, but as long as staying power does, it is a regular one. I don't mind reapplying it though, so in my book it is worth the money. I love the shades that these lip colours come in and it was rather hard decision to choose only one of them. I opted for the 'Rose Melody' which is perfect dusty vibrant rose nude shade with the sheer cool toned sheen in it. And look at the tube, it looks like it could be a high-end product!

Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick in 'Peach Sorbet' delivers a creamy rich peachy nude colour to the lips that actually lasts longer than expected. While doing that, it also moisturises and hydrates the lips, leaving them so comfortable and plump. A perfect no-brainer nude shade you that I can imagine, would suit for any skin tone, without making them pale or ashy like a ghost.
