The Makeup-Meets-Miscellaneous Bag

I was heading out the door today with a good 5 minutes to spare, a blog photo to take and my bag of all trades in hand. Being after some post inspo, I decided to just chuck all the contents of this little clutch onto a table (with the exception of keys, phone and other boring bits) and took a quick snap. It's basically all the little things I take with me on a long day out and about, featuring some current beauty faves. Let's delve right in...

The first prod that grabs your eye would have to be the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu - basically the definition of a hot pink. I'm tucked away in bed right now, exercising my ability to multitask and typing away whilst tuning in to Legally Blonde, and I'm 100% sure that Yu would be Elle Woods approved. I just throw it in this bag in case I need to go from day to night makeup in a jiffy. Too easy. And of course, I carry around The Body Shop's Born Lippy in Pink Guava to slather on before applying any lip colour. Chapped lips + bold lipstick = recipe for disaster.

M.A.C's Mineralised Skinfinish and NARS' Radiant Creamy Concealer are all about keeping things base-ic. For touch-ups, I'll don some concealer under the eyes and on any redness, and mattify my midday shine with the powder. Both of these are essential for bumping up coverage levels on the go. Oh, and don't forget a powder brush! Just isn't the same without one (I would know #forgetfulness).

The rest of these bag-fillers fall under the etc category, but are important nonetheless. I'm loving this funky, hair-tie/cuff thing from Sportsgirl which probably has an actual name but hair terminology is a whole other realm for me. You basically scrape up your tresses into an average pony but then jazz everything up because of this touch of gold hair-bling. And then, there's no forgetting a couple of bobby pins. TIP: Pack 20 because roughly 95% of all bobby pins disappear into a void. Then lastly, I pop in a mini fragrance, this time being Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle - a floral yet sophisticated scent - and a pair of Sportsgirl sunnies because I'm in denial that I live in Melbourne and it is Winter. Summer, hurry up.

That's a wrap - what's calling your clutch home right now?
Until next time...
