What's on my Face #3 // Simple Eyes & Coral Lips

I am coming to you today with another "What's on my Face" post I started these at the end of last summer and keep planning on doing them, I even begin writing them but never finish! I am trying to get back to what kind of posts I love to do and since this I am a total make-up geek naturally I love showing you what make-up I'm loving and wearing.
 MAC - Face & Body Foundation
MAC - Studio Finish Concealer
Rimmel - Stay Matte Powder
Nars - Laguna Bronzer
Benefit - Coralista
Laura Mercier - Radiance Baked Powder - Highlight 01
Urban Decay - Naked 2 Palette - Foxy & Tease
Maybelline - Eye Studio Gel Liner - 01 Black
Maybelline - The Falsies Black Drama Mascara
YSL - Rouge Volupte Lipstick in 13 Peach Passion
Most of these products are my must have products and some of them I have been using for years. Face & Body foundation is really quite amazing! You have to try it, after the first use you will use it forever (on and off of course as we can't leave the other foundations lying in our beauty drawers!) Defiantly the most versatile foundation out there! Nars Laguna is a new addition and it defiantly is as good as every one says it is! For my eyes I kept it very simple with foxy all over my eyelid and I've also used it as my brow bone highlight, for definition in my crease I used tease - which I also used it on my lower lash line. And you can't forget the gel liner and mascara to make your lashes stand out. For my peachy coral lips I used my favourite YSL - Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Peach Passion, I love this colour it is perfect for spring and summer - which it is in my head even though it really isn't!

I also have to add that, you may notice that my blog has had a little bit of a make-over! I have had about five makeover of my blogs that I've had. Three on this one alone! What can I say I get board easily and we'll I've never totally loved everything about my blog. So I took it on my self and did the entire thing - even the coding all by myself. I have to say I really am proud of myself and what I've created and I suppose the saying is true - If you want something done right, do it yourself! I'd love to know what you think of my new design!
Do you like any of the products I used?

What's in my Handbag // Warehouse Padlock Handbag

Is it just me or can you also make out a face on pretty much anything!?

Recently I got a new handbag, so naturally I have to do an updated What's in my handbag post! I mainly use my Marc by Marc Jacobs bag as it's my baby - I did a post on it when I first got it last summer! Recently I have started my pro make-up course which means every Sunday I have an hour train journey each way, a bit of walking back and forth and a lot of stuff to carry and my Marc Jacobs bag just isn't big enough, it is also very open so when I am going on the train and walking around busy city centres I just don't feel like it is very safe for it to be totally open. This warehouse bag however is structured without being really bulky like the Zara City Office Bag aka The Blogger Bag which I actually have only used maybe three times because it's too big and I kept knocking into things! (I am also thinking of selling it if anybody if interested, I did a post here if you want to see what it's like.) Anyway enough rambling, so it's structured so you can fit everything in like a game of Tetris, it is zipped at the top so completely secure it also doesn't look really cheap which some chain store bags can look - the material and the finishing of the bag is absolutely perfect. Here is what is typically in my bag:
Lip Products (balm, lipstick & gloss) 
Hair Bobble & Bobby Pins 
Bottle of juice 
Notebook & Pen
Hair Brush 
Make-Up Bag 

That may seem like a lot but it really isn't especially on a Sunday when I take two bottles of juice, my lunch, a brush roll and a really thin textbook on top of what I normally carry!  And if you haven't realised by now I am defiantly somebody that has to be prepared and organised no matter where I am! 

I hope you've enjoyed this post! And if your reading this you are most likely like me and love having a nose at what other people carry around with them, I think it can be quite interesting to see the weird and wonderful things we carry about it our very heavy handbags! 
What are your necessities in your handbag?
