5 Makeup Bag Staples

Every now and then I find that there's a set of makeup products that I end up using everyday because I know they work really well. Most time I use them with other things depending on the look I am going for or I can even use them alone to do a quick, simple face.
5 Makeup Bag Staples
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder - £8.99 - I've mentioned this a good amount of times as it has been my powder of choice for a while now, as you can see it is well loved. I like the fact that this is a fine powder that doesn't feel cakey on the skin yet keeps things at place and help with oil control.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - £5.99 - This is another product that is well loved and is my go to concealer for covering redness and blemishes. It is light and creamy so you can definitely use it under the eyes as well. The shade 15 is pale with the perfect mix of yellow and pink undertones.
Max Factor Miracle Creamy Blush in Soft Pink
Max Factor Miracle Creamy Blush in Soft Pink - £6.99 - I recently rediscovered this cream blush and i've been using it a lot lately. It's very compact which is great for traveling and although it is pigmented it's hard to apply too much product onto the skin. I use my ring finger and tap the product on the apples of the cheeks and it gives a lovely, healthy flush to the skin.
Soap & Glory Archery Pencil
Soap & Glory Archery Pencil - £8.00 - This has fast become my favourite brow product, it so easy to apply and defines the brows whilst looking natural. The shade Blondeshell is a great match is you have blonde or light brown hair as it isn't too warm toned. It's also not to creamy which helps to fill in any gaps and give shape to the brows.
Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara in Ultra Black
Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara in Ultra Black - £9.99 - This is the mascara that i've been using a lot lately and really enjoying. It is very black so is a great mascara to wear alone for a dramatic lash look. You can apply one coat which gives length and volume to the lashes or apply more product to give almost a false lash effect.

I've been loving and using all of these products a lot lately so would definitely recommend checking them out. What are some of your makeup staples that you've been loving recently?
