What’s In My Make Up Bag

What is in Honest Mum's Make up bag


‘What isn’t in my make up bag?!’ is probably a better title to this post and video because wo, amigos, making this film made me stop, recognise and importantly reorganise- not just my make up bag but also my life.

You’ll see what I mean when you watch the video!

No one needs 4 lipsticks in pretty much the same colour in their make up bag every single day do they?!

Go check out the video and look through all the beauty products I, up until now, have been lugging around with me in my new art deco inspired make up bag!

From foundation-powder to pale pink eye shadow and brightening skin illuminator, I’ve opened up my make up bag and shared some of my faves here (yes there’s more-and more in boxes, on my dressing table and in the bathroom cabinets too! I think I need to make a movie length video to fit all that in! I need help don’t I?

I’ve also listed all the items below as lots of you often ask me for product details when I make these videos.

Anyway you’ll be happy to read that since making this video, my make up bag is a lot more streamlined and whilst I’ll still use all the products, I’m only using the essentials day to day.
