It's very rare that I feel so genuinely excited about a product, and I actually have a lot to thank Calypso for, she & her product have reignited my passion for photography and design. Over the last couple of days I have been so inspired to make something of myself like Calypso has and I have so many ideas ticking around my head right now that I'm excited to share in time!
Clippy make up bag in the post I already had an idea of how I wanted to personalise it. That's the magic of these bags, you can make which ever bag you choose completely your own unique creation. The bags I believe, were created because Calypso wanted to be able to display her Polaroid photographs in a unique way so each pocket in the bags is the perfect size for a Polaroid. I don't have many Polaroid photographs but I love the instant format so I dug out my collection of Instax images and picked out my favourites. As little backgrounds for them I chose some of my favourite skyscapes and pretty nature images and voila, my make up bag was complete.
Lately I have been incredibly boring with my make up and I have taken to popping some products into a make up bag and just using those products for a couple of weeks at a time or just until I fancy a bit of a change. This make up bag fits in all my essentials & would be perfect for traveling, if I ever went anywhere, which I sadly don't. Oh how I wish I could live a jet set lifestyle! Although without actually having to go on a plane, because I'm scared of those!
MUA Heaven & Earth eyeshadow palette, MAC Lovelorn lipstick, MAC Creme Cup lipstick, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation, 17 Peep Show mascara, Benefit Eyebright, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, MAC Fresh Air tinted lipglass, Benefit Creaseless Cream eyeshadow/liner, Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner, Illamasqua Promise cream blusher, MAC Blonde Mineralize Skinfinish, Benefit Erase Paste concealer, Blistex Daily Lip Conditioner.
I'm sure you all will have seen most of the things that are in my make up bag currently many times before, the only new addition is the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner, which I have to say I'm not overwhelmed with so far. I rarely wear eyeliner now so I'm not entirely sure why I purchased it but I'm going to persevere with it and see if I can make it work for me. So far I do think it's better than MAC Blacktrack Fluid Line, but it's not the incredible product I was expecting so I'm a little disappointed. If you have any eyeliner recommendations I would really appreciate it if you left them in the comments, I can't seem to find one that doesn't smudge on me!
