2014 Resolutions & What's in My Make-up Bag // January

Mood: Cheerful
Listening to: Ben Howard- Keep Your Head Up

Hello beautiful bloggers!

Firstly, I'd like to begin by saying I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year, so here's to 2014 and I hope you all have a fabulous year!
As you may or may not have noticed I've been a terrible blogger the last few months and have only been posting once a month! One of my new years resolutions is to change this habit and post at least once a fortnight (Hopefully it will be more often than that but I'm going to just say a fortnight for now!)

Another resolution of mine is to get active and keep fit. So far it's not going great, but I am going to toughen up and wake up earlier to fit in a bit of exercise or even just go for a long walk after work, even if I don't feel like. So fingers crossed I will sort this resolution out by the end of January!

Moving swiftly on from new years resolutions to make-up! I wanted to do a What's in My Make-up Bag for quite a while and I thought since I had a new make-up bag for my birthday (December 23rd) I would finally make a post and show everyone what I currently have in my make-up bag.

Thank you to my sister for my gorgeous Cath Kidston make-up bag!
So I'll admit it, since the end of last year I rarely used a make-up bag and just threw my things into my handbag for work. But now I've learnt my lesson and I've become more organised by placing all of my things in make-up bag to prevent make-up breakages and spillages (I learnt the hard way!)

Some of my beauty favourites.
So here are a few face products I currently enjoy using, going from left to right they are:

1. Garnier 5 Second Perfect Blur Primer.
2. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent.
3. Bourjois Happy Light Foundation in #51 Rose Vanilla.
4. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Vanilla.
5. Bourjois Cream Blush in Healthy Glow.
6. Nars Blush in Orgasm.

I seem to be loving Bourjois a lot lately, and I'm in love with their new cream blushes! I only bought this a few days ago and it's literally the perfect peachy colour and it looks so pretty on.

My favourite lip product of 2013!
Okay, so I may not need all three of these in my make-up bag but I love them so much I like to have a choice of which one I'm going to use. The three colours I have are:

1.Candy Apple
2. Juicy Papaya
3. Pink Truffle

More essentials!
Just before Christmas I went to boots and saw prettiest face powder I have ever seen! It was shimmering beautifully on the shelf and there was no way I was leaving boots without it! This product is the L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Pearl Powder in Rose Boudoir. Unfortunately the shimmer was only a dusting on top of the product and you can't see it in the picture. But if you're ever out and about I recommend to go and see how pretty they look! Product number two in this picture is the trustworthy Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in shade number 2 light. I honestly swear by it, it's the best concealer I've ever used!

My favourite mascara of 2013.
1. Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara.
2. Bourjois Liner Feutre in Ultra Black.
3. Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo in Pink-Gold.

So here are the last three items in my make-up bag. I was going to add in all of my brushes but I thought I'd just stick to make-up. I hope you've enjoyed looking at what's currently in my make-up bag. I always change different products and don't tend to stick to one product unless I absolutely love it.

Let me know if you've used any of these products and if you have any products you'd like to recommend. Hope you all have a great week!

Love from Bethan
