What is in my Makeup Bag...

I did one of these a while ago, right back when I started my blog so I thought I would do a little updated version. My makeup is very basic and I don't experiment too much, I am getting there though, one thing at a time.
Rimmel Long Lasting Foundation - I started using this a few months ago and I have mentioned it a few times on my blog because it is so good. You can read my review of it here. I haven't used a foundation which actually stays on my face all day, I love the way it makes my skin look.  

MUA Hide and Conceal - I actually really like this concealer and I think it is good for just £1. I do want to get a different one soon but this does the job. It covers any blemishes well. 

Collection Pressed Powder - I have been using this for so long! It is such a good powder, I use it on my t-zone and any any other areas I feel are a bit shiny. 

Miss Sporty Ohh! Tan So Fine Bronzing Powder - I use this on my cheekbones, around the forehead and under my jaw just to try and create some sort of definition! It works I think and I really like the subtle tan it gives to your skin. 

MUA Blusher - I have this in Shade 2 and it is a really nice peachy pink and just adds a little flush of colour to my cheeks. I feel like it works really well the bronzer. 

Natural Collection Eyeliner - I have about 3 eyeliners and I just pick whatever is closest to the top of the bag. I really don't notice a difference between my eyeliners, I apply it on the lower lash line and blend with a small brush. Other eyeliners I use are the Collection Intense Colour and the MUA Intense Glitter. I only use the glitter one when we are going out or doing something special. It isn't too noticeable, it is still a very dark black shade with specks of glitter. 

Rimmel Wonder'full Mascara - I love this mascara! I do have quite long lashes but this just extends them even more! They separate so well and don't go clumpy with this. I did a review of this which you can read here.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Balm - This is something I discovered a few weeks ago now and I just want all of the shades because it is so good and I honestly like the look of every colour. This is just so nice to apply, it has a lovely vanilla scent and my lips just feel so soft with this on. It almost tints your lips too so hours later your lips still have some colour. If I don't use this I use my No7 lipstick in the shade Classic Rose. This is quite a dark lipstick for me but I just apply it with a lip brush and add a little at a time. I usually apply No7 High Shine Gloss on top of this too in the shade Smile. 

Something else I occasionally use is my MUA Pro-Base which has different colours in a palette which are all aimed to target different things. I wanted to get this as the green shade is supposed to combat redness. It did work but I seemed to find that I had started breaking out after using this. I am going to leave it a while then maybe try again just so I can work out if it was actually that which caused the breakout. If anybody could recommend any products which combat redness I would really appreciate it! 
The makeup brushes I use are the Real Techniques core collection. I use the pointed foundation brush, sometimes the detailer brush for my concealer but a lot of the time I just my finger to blend it in. I use the buffing brush for my powder and the contour brush for my bronzer. I also have a real techniques blush brush which I obviously use for my blusher.

Do you use any of these products?
