My Emergency Night Out Make Up Bag (Picture Heavy)

These things I just cannot leave the house for a night out on the town without. I don't know if anyone is actually interested in seeing them but I have seen loads of "what is in my bag" posts so I said why the hell not! 

My bag is a freebie Clinique make up bag. It's pretty tiny but it fits everything I need. 

Just had to show it to you cause it is so freaking cute but here is what I usually keep in it.

I always have to have my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural and a blush with me. This is the perfect opportunity to introduce you to my new favourite blush.

Yes!! I went to MAC on the first day of the Quite Cute collection and picked up this blush. Giggly is beautiful and apart from the Candy Yum Yum lipstick was the only thing I really wanted from this collection. 

Also, I want to introduce you to my favourite liquid eye liner at the moment. I have terribly weepy eyes, so I need a good waterproof one and this is the one I use. I am pretty sure it is under €4 too, which is a bargain!

I always carry a black eye shadow, angled brush and my Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero for top ups to the water line and eyebrows. This black eye shadow is Rimmel Colour Rush Eye Shadow in Jet Black. 

I also carry wipes, a tiny bottle of Lancome's Bi-Facil and cotton buds and pads, well a girl never knows when she may need them. 


Eyelash glue is also an essential and usually there is tweezers too but for some reason I forgot them that night, It's grand, I didn't need them anyway. 

Also hair grips!!! You never know what state your hair is going to be in the next day or after a lot of dancing so I make sure I have these so I can control it somewhat. 

Then of course my lipstick and lip Primer which is Mac Prep and Prime lip. Which is fast becoming a necessity and my lipstick which this night was MAC Viva Glam IV and Lancome l'Absolu Nu in 103.

Anything you couldn't live without? Am I missing anything that I absolutely should have with me?

p.s. I just want to apologise for the photos. I am taking them with my iphone. My poor camera is a bit sick and I don't know where to take it to be fixed. Does anyone know of anywhere reliable in Dublin that repairs cameras?

that lip primer looks it expensive???

It is pretty expensive at €16.50 but it allows me to use matte lipsticks which I would never be able to do otherwise. So I am trying to limit it's use to only matte lipsticks but I love how it makes my lips feel.

I know what you mean about the matte lipsticks, they wrinkle up my lips haha

Same here that's why I got the primer! :)

omg i hardly bother to take anything out with me on nights out - i'd probably just lose it! I usually just take a mirror and lipstick/gloss and then forget to top it up i'm having such a good time! If i'm staying at a friends i'll probably try to take my day make up bag and some make up remover but if i'm going home i can't be bothered lugging everything around in case i lose it :(

Ha ha ha! I know the one time I don't bring this stuff out with me is the one time I am going to seriously need it.
