What's in my make up bag?

As you can probably guess from the title, I'm going to let you have a glimpse at what's in my make up bag at the moment.
I say at the moment because I'm constantly changing make up colours or brands. I've got about three or four make up bags lying around with products I'm not using anymore, and one main bag with all my current favourites, please tell me I'm not the only one who does that!
Now I'm not quite sure why I'm sharing this with you as the contents aren't very exciting at all, but hey...here we go!
 
 
I told you it wasn't very exciting! If anyone would love to send me some MAC please feel free...only joking (not).
 
I usually start my make up routine by applying some foundation. At the moment I'm using the DREAM MATTE MOUSSE by Maybelline and the colour I've got is Ivory. I'm finding it a little bit too light for me so next time I'm in town I just might pick up the next colour on their palette.
One of the products not shown in the photo is my BARE MINERALS FOUNDATION which I loooooove! Reason it's not in there is because I used it all up (booo) but I will get a new one very soon! I cannot rave about this enough, It's amazing.  I use the REAL TECHNIQUES powder brush to apply it.
I've also got the REAL TECHNIQUES foundation brush but haven't used it that much yet.
 
I've got a really old concealer by AVON. I use it to hide my dark circles. I'm on the lookout for a new one so please recommend me one if you can!
 
The bronzer I use is from BOURJOIS and it's actually quite an old one, I should really replace it.
 
On to eye shadow and I've got quite a few AVON colours in my bag. My three most used ones at the moment are TRUE COLOUR SMOKEY EYES, TRUE COLOUR MOCHA LATTE and TRUE COLOUR PINK SANDS. I don't necessarily stick to one palette, I like to mix it up a bit. Rebellious I know.
 
My favourite eye pencil at the moment is EXAGGERATE by RIMMEL, I've got it in Noir and it's really good, doesn't smudge and it's waterproof! Perfect for all the rainy weather we are having at the moment.
I also use the MAYBELLINE MASTER SMOKEY SHADOW PENCIL in smoky grey quite often and I've also got the smoky chocolate but that one is currently living in another bag.
I love that they have a smudger at the end, very handy.
 
I use the REAL TECHNIQUES SHADING BRUSH to apply eye shadow, such a great brush, if you are looking for a good brush I would definitely recommend this one.
 
My absolute favourite mascara is the AVON SUPER SHOCK MASCARA. I love love love it and buy this mascara over and over again.
I recently bought the BENEFIT THEY'RE REAL MASCARA and I'm quite impressed with that one too, although I would probably wear that one on weekends or nights out as it makes my eyelashes really big and full. Hence they name I guess.
 
I don't wear blusher that often, apart from the winter months when I look really pale, and the one I'm using at the moment is by COLLECTION (which I think is from Superdrug?) and it's called SHIMMER SHADES, colour is blushalicious.
 
Last but not least...lipsticks!!! I love lipsticks but have only got two colours in my bag.
I've got a lip gloss by AVON and the colour is Coral explosion and I love this colour. I wear it every day for work. On weekends I go a bit brighter and use the MAYBELLINE SUPER STAY in Ultimate blush. It's very bright and pink, probably more a summer colour but I love it.
I have a few colours on my wish list, so once I buy I will show!
 
And there we go, that's my make up bag.
Please share your make up secrets with me, any good colours or products you can recommend me...I'd love to know.

I use the dream lumi touch highlighting concealer (maybelline). I guess it's pretty good because a lot of youtube beauty guru's use it too ;)
