August Blog Challenge - Day 11

August blog challenge day 11: What's in your make-up bag?

I know I'm a day late with this again (oops!) but 4.15am starts coupled with family birthdays and a day of training for a new job apparently don't mix well with keeping on top of blogging!

But anyway - on with the post.

Despite the fact that I very rarely wear make-up, I seem to have rather a lot of it hoarded! My collection consists of the few staples I always use when I go out, plus a load of make-up I'm not entirely sure where I got it from and I've never actually used, but I can't quite bring myself to get rid of it because it just looks so pretty.

I don't care about buying from a particular brand - on the rare occasion I do buy make-up, I buy it because it's practical, cheap, and more often than not, the first brand I happen to pick up.

I'm not pretending to be a beauty blogger, (not least because I'd be the worst beauty blogger in history) so I'm just going to leave you with a few photos of my make-up stash.

I'm a complete sucker for colour, which may go a little way towards explaining why I've got a range of eye pencils in colours I'd never be bold enough to wear out.

For that matter, I even have a bunch of lipsticks despite never having worn lipstick in my life.

Now, makeup aside, I'm much more of a nail-varnish kind of girl. I got rid of a lot of my nail varnishes fairly recently, but I still have a good variety of colours (it's that colour obsession again...). I love to experiment with mixing different colours and patterns - painting all my nails the same plain colour is not my thing at all!

Glittery nail varnish adds that extra layer of sparkle!
