WARNING: This blog post includes zero fancy photos, BUT, AH-MAZING products! 

This post is a while in the making, yesterday a very special foundation came back into my life and I couldn’t be happier. I am of course talking about Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua! This is without exception my favourite Chanel base. You guys know I love the Les Beige base also but it’s heavier and I will use it when Winter (officially) starts. The Vitalumiére Aqua is the perfect base for Summer. I haven’t had either foundation for the last sevenish weeks and that’s another story but applying it today made me realise that there are products in my makeup bag that I’m just not prepared to do without. 

 So you know I’m a fiend for make-up bags and my exploits are well documented on Instagram. They are collectibles and I wouldn’t dream of ever using them…these Penneys bags CAN NOT be beaten for quality/value. 
 These seven items will forever be in my day to day bag. First up the Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua, this foundation is amazing and honestly I don’t know a single person who has tried it and not loved it. 

 Then we have the Chanel cream blush stick, as I said before Easy Peasy Cheekbones! When I want a flush to my cheeks I will always reach for Bene-tint! It’s easy to use and fuss free.

 My go-to eye products are also veterans in the bag and in some cases my fourth re-purchase. I’m looking at Maybelline concealer. Come on… We all use it and I wish Maybelline would rename it! The Essence ‘Make me brow’ is fantastic, it is hard to find at times in Penneys but I love the small brush and the colour is perfect and buildable. The last product is the Charlotte Tilbury’s Champagne Diamonds, it’s foolproof and so pretty on the eyes. It is also a product that doesn’t need retouching. It wears nicely and makes the eye bright. These guys are must-haves for me. What are some of your make-up must-haves?
