What's In My Bag - Graduation Edition

So I mentioned in my last post that it was my graduation on Friday. I thought it would be good to do a post on what I took with me in my bag for touch ups throughout the day. Now that it's after the event I can also tell you what I used the most.

The bag itself is a recently purchase from New Look. For a small bag you can fit a good amount of things in it, also the long strap is detachable and there's a small wrist strap so it can be used as a clutch as well. The bag was only £8.99 yet has some lovely detailing on it.

For makeup I took my favourite powder which is the Seventeen Pressed Powder and the Real Techniques Blush Brush to apply it. This has a mirror which is really handy. I did end up using this after graduation before going out for a meal to reduce the shine. I also brought my Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer which I used in the morning but didn't end up using during the day. Something I did use was the Caudalie Beauty Elixir which was so nice to refresh the skin as I was filling a little warm by the afternoon. I also brought the lip products I was wearing, the Collection Cream Puff in Fairy Cake and the Bourjois Colour Burst in Orange Punch. I only ended up popping a bit of the Bourjois crayon on as they both last fairly well.

That's all the beauty bits I took with me. I also made sure I had some plaster with me in case my shoes started to rub. I used a couple of these but my shoes ended up being surprisingly comfortable. Something I definitely used was the hair grips, not in my hair but to help keep the hat and gown in place! If you're graduating I would definitely recommend having spare grips with you. 

So that's everything I had in my bag for graduation. I also had my phone to take pictures with but I wanted to keep things light. What products to you bring with you when you're going out for a long day?
