Monthly Make Up Bag // Minimal Edition

Recently, I've been trying to let my skin breathe a little and therefore I seem to have created a bit of a minimal, simple and quick makeup routine. When the weather gets colder my skin gets incredibly dry (and I seem to have a combination skin type anyway!) so using less products actually works to my favour.

These products are just some of my current favourites, however, you can switch them out for your favourites if you wanted a quick routine yourself. Here is the contents of my November makeup bag!


I start off with the Revlon Colourstay Concealer and focus this on any areas that need brightening. The creamy consistency of this product isn't harsh on dry and sensitive skin and works well to cover, conceal and brighten without being cakey. 

Following up with the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder to magnify slightly and add a little bit of coverage (since it isn't translucent). I like this powder because it doesn't cling to any dry patches on the skin, which is great for this time of the year! The powder mattifies in a natural way so that it doesn't remove some of your skins natural glow.

I add some colour back into my cheeks using the MaxFactor Creme Puff Blush in Gorgeous Berries. This has got to be my all-time favourite blusher. It is the most beautiful shade of berry and adds the perfect flush of colour to the apples of my cheeks.

Next up, I use the L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper to lightly define and hold my brows in place. The brown shade doesn't make them look too dark but just adds a little bit more definition.

I am currently loving the Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara as it just provides the perfect amount of volume and length to my lashes and doesn't transfer or crumble off throughout the day!

I'm sure it's not only me that suffers with dry lips during the winter but I mostly wear lip balm during the day so I can keep them hydrated as much as possible. The First Aid Beauty Lip Therapy is a tinted lip balm and gives the best of both when it comes to moisture and a little bit of colour. I've also written a detailed post all about lip balms (if you love them as much as I do, please have a read here).


What are your favourite minimal makeup products?



  1. I definitely favour just focusing on the base for minimal makeup (foundation, concealer, blush, brows), similar to what you had here. I am also a big lover of Maybelline mascaras!


    1. Maybelline mascaras are some of the best right?!

  2. I love this kind of post !

  3. Sounds like some good products.

  4. The Bourjois powder is always in my handbag - I think I use it virtually daily :)

  5. I have tried the normal Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, but never the luscious one, I may have to get my hands on that and try it out!
