What’s in my Everyday Makeup Bag


One of the questions I get asked every single day is what’s on my face. So today I thought I’d delve into my daily essentials and give you the lowdown on the products that I rate so much that they’ve made it on to my face pretty much every day since Christmas.


First up is face. I really love dewy fresh-looking skin but with a full coverage base. To achieve this I use Flormar Double Radiance Primer*as a base. I love this for extending the wear of my foundation and giving it a seriously dewy glow. Then to amp up the coverage I whip out some Estee Lauder Double Wear. The cult classic that stays put all day and covers every single blemish and pore- I’m never without this in my makeup bag! I then set my base with Flormar Loose Powder*, sweeping it gently across my face. For contour and to add some colour I then sweep some Flormar Face & Body Bronzing Powder* in the usual areas (If you’d like to see a more in depth contour routine let me know in the comments below!). Then i add some blush from my Sleek Blush Palette in Flame using the ‘Chantilly’ shade the most! In case you haven’t realised, I’m a highlighter fanatic! I dust some TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer on my cheekbones and browbones as a final touch.

Next is eyes and brows. My go-to product for brows is Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. I seriously can’t live without this I apply it with an angled brush and because12986759_10153335167662820_904423972_o13010222_10153335167797820_2017668713_o it’s waterproof it doesn’t budge all day. For my everyday work look I usuallydon’t bother with any fancy winged liner and use my go-to palette, Charlotte
Tillbury Dolce Vita Palette
. The perfect palette for daytime looks that can easily be transitioned to night looks when needs be. A pricey investment but to me so worth it! I then finish off with some mascara, currently I’m loving Flormar Spiderlash Mascara* for really defined voluminous lashes- I love how much of a bargain this is too!

I always team this with WetnWild Color Icon Lipliner in Brandy Wine- a winning combination. (WetnWild is available in lots of pharmacies nationwide and also in Dunnes Stores!)




So that’s my everyday makeup routine- would you like to see my evimageening makeup routine or maybe a tanning routine? Let me know in the comments section!

*I realise this post is really Flormar heavy. I currently am fortunate enough to work in the Marketing Department of Flormar Ireland and as such have gotten a lot of lovely Flormar goodies. I do really love them though and really rate them in terms of quality and value. If you’d like to find your closest stockist check out
