The beauty products you always need to carry in your make up bag!

Long days are a synonym for retouching in makeup terms. Whenever i know I'll be having a long day I prepare my bag with a few things that i know i will need after a couple of hours.
Unfortunately, i can't bring my everything with me, so i need to choose my favorite products.
 Although i wished i could throw every single lipstick i own and a huge palette into my bag i know that its not practical. I compared my necessities to my fellow bloggers' bags and created this small list that doesn't take much space but will help you out for a flawless makeup any time, especially in the wintertime.

 Firstly: The Mattifying Face Powder
Because most of us get oily throughout the day, especially if you're in a rush and what i usually use is the Purobio Cosmetics Compact Powder, which is weightless, organic, vegan and affordable. I really love it because it's totally invisible when you apply it on the skin.
Bronzer and Highlighter small palette
In case the one you applied in the morning fades out or you need more color to not look tired.

I simply love the small palette of Sleek, since you can carry it everywhere with you and it gives you a such natural look.
Sleek is a great drugstore brand from the UK, and this shimmer "brick" is just as great as the PF Strips. You can hardly tell the difference in shimmer and texture.

 Travel Size Mascara

It's more likely that you will rush out and forget to apply it, but you might need an extra layer later on.

OTHER TIPS

    Concealers in a tube are more hygienic to carry around.
    Chunky lip pencils don't take much space and give you more precision.
    Never throw away perfume samples, always keep one in your bags.
    Pick a mascara that lifts your lashes, this way you don't need to carry your curlers.
    Build up your makeup throughout the day, start with a light look and intensify it later on.
    Throw in some oil removing sheets if you're really oily.
    A powder with a little coverage can be more handy but don't over apply it or else it does look cakey.

The 10 Must-Haves for Any Successful Event 
    Motivation:

There must be a reason for why you are doing your event, so find the reason and understand what your crowd will be looking for, especially what kind of event you want to deliver and why you are currently developing your event.

    Idea


Now that you know what you are trying to do, you need to shine above the rest. How do you do this? Bouncy castle at a wedding? Upside down cakes hanging? Mermaids?  Maybe a masseur in the middle of your venue, to the sound of a live saxophonist. We’ve done this all (and more!) before, and we’ve got you covered for everything.

    Knowing your Crowd

Understand the kind of people you are trying to attract or that you are trying to impress. What is the age of those attending? What do they like? Right now it’s key that reflect upon these questions so as to know who you are catering for.

This is the first real step in making your event legendary, classic, and original; the event that …

I had to try this right, to see for myself and to let you know if this vision and mission of e.l.f. cosmetics is something I agree with.
The palette above is the elf Nude Rose Palette, Its filled with 10 shadows both matt and shimmer and all in the rose gold tones. The shadows have good pigmentation, blend really well and the colours are really pretty. I've been using this palette alot and as its quite narrow its not too big to take away with you or chuck in your handbag.

My three favourite editing apps!

Blogging is one of those jobs/hobbies where it is 24/7. There's no switching off from it, and if you're like me, sometimes you have to step away from the laptop. We live in a day in age, where technology is number one to us, and to be honest is incredibly useful.
Although I like to have a break away from the blog, sometimes I will have to use my phone as my main contact, and recently I have been using some apps which are really helpful for when you're blogging at home or on the run Editing photos for social media is something I really enjoy to do. These apps work in a very similar way with Photoshop and they will help you adjust the basic things like lighting, shadows, or undertones and even more complicated steps like cloning sides to make a photo appear larger. 
VSCO Cam

This is my all time number one app. To be honest, I think you could just use this one and everything would be perfect. Although it's a free app, you can buy some pre…
