When Brothers Try to Cheer You Up

Hey Guys! Quick little post today just to share with you something my brother said to me which I thought you would all get a giggle out of. We all hate that saying "There plenty more fish in the sea" so my brother's take on this old saying was to make it slightly inappropriate. Still I had a good giggle and managed to see the funny side of a bad situation.

My Travel Makeup Bag

Hey Guys! Diving on in today with a "whats in my travel makeup bag" post. Now I bet you're all wondering why do this post today of all days? Well even if you weren't you're going to find out! I'm taking a wee trip down to London with some class mates (only 8 of us) for 4 days and I'm so excited that even typing this is making me slightly hyper. Now hopefully I shall have some other London related posts but we all know whenever I say these things they never happen. Anyways here you go guys, what I take makeup wise on a trip.

 I absolutely love this makeup bag its doesn't look that big but you can fit so much beauty junk in it, plus it was a complete bargain at £3 from Primark.
This is all the base makeup that I take with me, just 5 products which I don't think is that much (typical blogger attitude right lol). For foundation I take my Revlon Color Stay as it is great for any occasion whether its day wear or for a more full coverage evening wear. Again my Collection concealer has the same benefits so I also take that. The sleek contour kit and my Nars blusher also work together well and are quite diverse so look good in the evening or during the day. And lastly I take my favourite powder at the moment which is by soap and glory, you guys should see how badly I have hit pan on this beauty!

So eyes and eyebrows can basically be covered in one product which is the Naked 2 pallet, this thing is like to amazing for words its is absolute perfection! Sorry for the fan girl moment there but anyone who owns this will understand what I mean. And then I just have a cheap MUA clear mascara which isn't very clear anymore, its quite gross really, and a MAC paint pot which I use as an eye primer.

Lastly I have a Kate Moss lipstick by Rimmel in a darkish colour to wear in the evenings and to go along with that my favourite lip balm which is the mango one from Burt's Bees as well as the bubble gum lip scrub from Lush. The mascara I'm loving at the moment is doll'd up by Seventeen at Boots and I really do like this mascara it reminds me which a lot of the clump defy mascara by max factor (clump crusher by covergirl) but is like half the price. I also will take with my a good long wearing black eyeliner in this case 24/7 by Urban Decay and some eyelash curlers I'm not too fussy but the ones I currently have are just the Boots branded ones.

Need I Say More

Hey Guys! This honestly isn't a lazy post I promise. Anyways I was just scrolling through my newsfeed on Facebook and saw someone had liked this picture on Instagram, and I have to say I just love this. So hope you guys take some "inspiration" from it and I think it speaks enough for itself without me having to ramble on about it.
