Beauty - What's in my makeup bag February edition

Mac urban decay sleek barrym rimmel

Hey lovelies,
Every so often I change things up, in regards to my everyday makeup, one day I just do something different or pick up a product I haven't used for a while, and a new makeup look is born, well for a while anyway until the cycle happens all over again or I buy something new. 
At the moment I'm going for a slightly fresher, glowy look, maybe it's my longing for Spring, I dunno but that's how I'm feeling right now.

For this look it's all about dat base, for primer I'm still using my fav Mac prep and prime, in fact I have just repurchased and am on my second bottle so that's saying something about how much I like it. For foundation I have dug out my Rimmel fresher skin from my stash as the name suggests it's a fresher, lighter base something I am enjoying at the mo, along with the BarryM light reflecting concealer which is so brightening for under the eyes. For powder as always is my Mac mineralize skin finish my fav powder of all time.
Bronzer I'm sticking to a classic with Benefit Hoola, love it, blush and highlighter are new purchases from Sleek, and I am loving these two for that fresh glowy look. Then when I've finished my makeup I set it with the Barrym setting spray a staple in my makeup arsenal.

On to the eyes, It's no secret I love Urban decay as a brand and especially there eyeshadow palettes, I'm currently reaching for the naked 2 palette a lot, as I'm loving a gold and brown eye look at the moment and for that Naked 2 has got you covered, I'm teaming that with a little brown eyeliner this one's from essence, for a more subtle eye look rather than a harsh black lined eye. For brows for me it's always benefit's gimme brow, for a natural brow, lastly mascara again this one's from benefit, I love the they're real mascara, it gives me long separated defined lashes and I'm all about that.

Now lips, currently I am digging a nude lip, preferring a creamy lipstick rather than a matt, the two I have been reaching for lately are UD Liar, this will be no surprise to some of you as I bang on a lot on Instagram about how much I adore this lipstick, and Rimmel Kate no45, I love the Kate lipsticks, such nice lipsticks for the price.

So there you have it, my current go to makeup items, I'm sure I will probably change it all up again soon, especially as the Mr has bought me the Too Faced sweet peach palette for Valentine's and I know everyone raves about it, and I'm probably gonna become obsessed with it, haha!

Do you like to change up your makeup regularly? Let me know what looks you have been loving.
