Make up Part 2: Eyes, Lips and Hair!

Today I am going to write about my favourite make up items that I use for my lips and eyes day to day. Also I am going to share my favourite hair accessory that I take on any trip I go on.  I have not been sponsored or asked by any brands to discuss their items on my blog.  I have purchased all the items unless otherwise stated.

For my everyday look and all other looks on my eyes I always use Urban Decay as a brand.  I love Urban Decay they stay on all day and are fantastic colours.  The colour that I use on my everyday look is Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (wow I hadn't noticed how cool the name was!)  It can leave some sparkle on your cheeks but you can cover that over with some concealer or use a piece of tissue whilst your applying it.
The mascara that I am currently using is Benefits- they're real.  It makes your lashes look longer and fuller without clumping.  It lasts a really long time too (although remember you should change your mascara every 3 months for hygiene reasons.)  I am really keen to try out the new Benefit mascara Roller Lash so I will let you know my thoughts when I get it.

Before I put on any lipstick I always put on a moisturising layer first.  I am using lucas' Pawpaw Ointment.  I have only found it online but it make your lips so soft and doesn't have a horrible after taste.
I have a bit of a funny reaction to lipsticks so I really struggle to find one that I can use.  The one that I have at the moment is by an organic company called Lavera and is No.20 Exotic Grapefruit.  It doesn't dry out your lips and is really easy to apply.  I would highly recommend these lipsticks.
The final amazing item that I always have in my make up bag is this clever little tool by Scunci called the Topsy Tail.  It can make your ponytail that little more exciting and you can do all sorts of cool styles with it.  If you want to pick one up you can get one at most Boots stores.
What make up or hair items do you not leave the house without?
