These make up items are what I wear every day or when I go out at night. They're all amazing and most aren't expensive which I love. I don't see a need to spend a lot on make up. There are so many inexpensive, good quality brands out there these days. Biggest mistake I ever made was wasting money on a Chanel eyeshaddow quad. The $98 eye shadow quad didn't even make it into this post! So anyways, here it is.
This is the Coastal Scents 88 colour pallette. Best pallette ever! The eyeshaddows are small but it was only about $20 for this many so it's forgiven. I actually think it's on sale now for some ridiculous price. Think it was around $13!
As you can see I tend to stick to the neutral colours. I need to stop being lazy on weekends and make my way further left on the pallette.
I haven't tried any other gel liners before this one. I don't think I need to as I'm pretty happy with this one. Although, I don't particularly like the brush is came with. I find it harder to apply with their brush. A short angle brush is better for this.

At the moment, this is my mascara! It's good but not as good as Dior Show. That's the best mascara I've ever tried and I haven't found one that can beat it just yet. I've only had a Dior mascara once or twice. They're definately way too expensive to have all the time!

These lippies are going to be sooooo nice for summer. I've just started to wear the centre one 'Pink Blush' by rimmel more often. It's so bright and beautiful. So fun! Swatches will be available in the night section.

Love this- I haven't found anything better for the price and size. I wear porcelain ivory (ewww lol) when I don't have any tan on. If I do, I'll wear natural beige. Over the top I use Rimmel Stay Matte powder.

This is the Coastal Scents 88 colour ultra shimmer pallette. It has the same colours as the 88 colour pallette but they're really shimmery in this one.
And as you can see, also with this pallette I have mainly been using the neutral colours sadly.
I have been using the same Maybelline gel eyeliner at night.
I also use the same mascara. Depending on what eyeshadows I apply, occasionally I'll paint this Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner on top of my gel liner. I also like doing this in the day sometimes too.
This lipstick is so amazing. It's another Rimmel lasting finish lipstick in the colour 004 Indulgence. The picture really doesn't do it justice. It's a super bright pink and it looks so gorgeous on! I will have to post a picture of them on because these two lipsticks look the same in the photos! Don't you hate that?!
This is Pink Blush again. I also wear this at night. The shade creates a real barbie doll lip... and everyone just wants to be barbie at the moment!
I do pretty much wear the same lipsticks at night as I do in the day actually... Accept the the brightest shade Indulgence.

When I'm going out at night I wear the same Maybelline foundation as I do in the day. I have just recently purchased the Dream Matte Mousse foundation by Maybelline to be my night foundation. I haven't tried it yet. I hope I fall in love!
When I have tan on I will wear a darker powder over the top of my foundation. I wear a Jac Cosmetics one in the colour natural 2. These powders are really cheap- around $5.
For blush I'll wear the Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol or the Napoleon Perdis loose dust in colour number 7.
My highlighter is from Sephora. It's definately just a one off. Can't see myself back in Paris anytime soon :(
