What’s in my Mum’s Makeup Bag?

whats in my mums makeup bag daniellesbeautyblog

I’ve been wanting to do a post like this for ages and the idea came from a post Jasmine did with her mum ages ago but I finally got my mum talked into telling me why she likes certain items of makeup and you might see a few familiar products here because a few are firm favourites of mine too! Her response to why she uses these products was mostly “it’s nice and I like it” so I’ve tried to expand a little more on that but it’s safe to say she won’t be starting her own blog!

My mum is a bit like me in that she won’t leave the house without her “face” on but not like me in that she wants to try every new makeup product that’s released! Some of these are new to her but a lot of them are tried and tested old favourites and she really only spends money on makeup when it comes to foundation and lipstick, everything else is more on the drugstore side of things!

For foundation, my mum generally sticks to Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place foundation in Desert Beige and Revlon Colorstay foundation for oily/combination skin in Sand Beige. She says these both offer good coverage for her oily/combo skin and while Double Wear is her favourite, the ColorStay is a lot cheaper so she switches between the two. She was the first person to mention these foundations to me and they (Double Wear in particular) are favourites of mine too!

No7 Perfect Light Translucent loose powder is my mums go to powder and you might know that the pressed version is my favourite too so you can see a pattern forming! She says this helps keep her makeup in place though she will usually top up her T zone when she’s home at lunchtime which is normal for her with her skin type.

My aunt recently gave my mum the end of her Benefit Hoola bronzer which she has really been enjoying. She says this gives a nice shade of bronze to her skin and I also gave her one of my minis to use up as she really likes it!

For blusher, she has been using the No7Perfectly Bronzed Mozaic Bronzer for years and you can see there are quite a lot of bronze tones here too! The one in the main photo is actually one I got in a set and gave to my mum because I found it a bit much for my skin. She already has a backup ready to go and you can see she really likes to use the last of the product up – something I could learn from!

The NYX Eye and Eyebrow Pencil in Charcoal is a recent buy for my mum. She wears eyeliner everyday but finds black shades too harsh so always goes for a grey. This is easily put on and doesn’t drag though she does experience some smudging like she does with all eyeliner because she has watery eyes.

Another No7 product she is a fan of is the Precision Lips Pencil in Nude which keeps her lipstick from bleeding. She only outlines her lips and doesn’t fill them in with the lip liner as she doesn’t want to change the colour of her lipstick. I’m the opposite and always fill my whole lip in!

Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in Brown is the only lipstick she owns (!), I usually buy her one for Christmas but she probably goes through about two of these a year. She likes the colour and the formula and when she gets to the end she digs it out with a cotton bud to make sure she gets every last bit!

Benefit Gimme Brow Volumising Brow Gel in the shade 1 is another newish addition to my mum’s routine. This is a mini from a magazine but my mum loves it and I bought her the full size for Christmas. She says it gives her eyebrows a bit of shape and colour which she needs as she is blonde so this is easy and quick for her.

You’ll notice there is no primer, concealer, highlighter, eyeshadow or mascara here because my mum doesn’t use them! She is a glasses wearer with really curly lashes so just misses the mascara step and doesn’t see the point in the others! How am I related to her?

Also the makeup bag is just a Estee Lauder one she uses if she’s going on holiday, a bit like me, her makeup lives on her dressing table or in some drawers she has! Hope you enjoyed that post and a look into someone else's makeup collection! Do you have any of the same products as my mum?

  5. This is such an interesting post! My mum has basically the opposite sort of products to me because of our different skin types and concerns so this would be interesting to do!

  6. I really enjoyed reading this, my mum wears pretty much no makeup at all so is completely different. I've never used the double wear but I do love the light version.

  11. Like your Mum, mine doesn't have anywhere near as much makeup as I do. She knows what suits her & generally sticks to it. She tends to go for a much more natural look than I do. I love that your Mum has a signature lipstick! xx

  15. Your mum sounds fabulous. She has great taste in makeup (hello Double Wear!) and I love that you have very similar favourites and products that you use. My mum doesn't wear makeup anymore but I remember raiding her lipsticks and powders even as a young child xxx

  22. I got my love for makeup from my mom, but she has quite a different complexion, skin type and taste. So I can pass her things that don't really work for me, which is a bonus. She is much more into colorful makeup and wears a lot of green and blue on her eyes.
