My Work Makeup Bag

Confession time. I am not one of those bloggers who gets up super early and spends time making myself look beautiful before I go to work. Usually, my morning routine involves launching myself into the shower, late, throwing some clothes on and falling asleep on the tube with my hair on my head. Fun fact: London is so disgustingly sweaty and grimy that unless I put my hair up on my head on the commute I have to wash it every day. I literally take 20 minutes from leaving my bed to the door, and have no intention of wasting precious sleep hours on makeup.

So unfortunately, my poor colleagues see my make up free face while I eat my breakfast and check my emails, and then I head to the toilets to do something about it. Which means I have a little make up bag in my handbag, and I today I thought I'd show you what's in it!

The Contents
My little metallic make up bag is from M&S, it was like a fiver and cheers me up whenever I see it.
Seventeen BB Cream in 'Light'- Has quite heavy coverage for a BB Cream, feels nice and fresh on my skin, and isn't clogging up my pores, which haven't recovered from the tube.
I have a concealer in my pen pot- it's the Collection Lasting Perfection one, and if I have any spots that'll come with me on the toilet trip.
Sleek contour pallette- I usually just pop a bit of the blush on with my fingers- it's 'Rose Gold'
Max Factor eye shadow in 35 Auburn Envy, again, fingers!
Collection Extreme felt tip liner in black- So easy to use, such a lovely line.
L'oreal Miss Manga mascara in black. I sometimes use Maybelline the Rocket, or both layered together if I have time- layered together I believe they're the best drugstore mascaras!
Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose
Malin & Goetz moisturiser

Do any of you do your make up at work? What are your staples?



  1. Freaking love the Collection's liner! It's so easy to use :)

    I ALWAYS do my makeup at work. Partly for the extra zzzs and partly cos the mirror and lighting is much better than in my flat. xx

    1. Omg I know! It's so easy...its literally perfect for lazy rushed mornings.

      Haha I'm all about the extra zzzs :)


  2. I love the Sleek contour kit! My colleagues are lucky if I even wear work to make up, I much prefer sleep haha x

    1. I know! It's so good...I can't seem to find the triple one anywhere though, think it's discontinued :( xx

  3. I love Nivea one! It is so good! x

    1. I didn't like it when I first got it, I always thought it was a bit frosted looking...I now apply one coat, wipe it off to get any trace of foundation or bb cream off my lips, and then reapply it. It's lovely when you ensure there's nothing else on your lips!
