Let me put this out there: I was honestly appauled at myself. I've never thought of myself as someone that would feel horrific at the thought of not having makeup, but honestly when I realised what I'd done on the train, I felt almost lost! I quickly started making a list of the bare minimum amount of makeup I would need to survive the weekend, and so here are the four makeup items I can't live without (but I wish I could):
1: L'Oreal Paris Double Extension Mascara £11.99
2: Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil - £2.99
3: Benefit Play Stick Foundation in Tea Party - £25.50
4: LOOK Beauty Mattify Me Translucent Powder - £8
So there we have it. I was actually quite impressed that I narrowed my must-haves down to four items, and after this whole saga I now know to leave at least a little makeup in my bag at all times. Just a little disclaimer: I did actually use other makeup that weekend, but only on the night that I went out with my friends, who happily came to my rescue with eyeshadow, eyeliner, primer, blusher, etc, etc. But these four items were all I needed during the day!
Do you guys have any products that you can't live without? What would be the bare-minimum amount of make-up that you would want/need?
