Inside Maxine's makeup bag

-YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in 201, £23.50 - this is a richly pigmented matte shade that I love wearing at work and in the evenings and it has amazings taying power too whihc is so important for me as I don't have time to keep touching it up.

-Caudalie Eau De Beaute, £32 – This beauty elixir is a firm favourite - it hydrates the skin and freshens it once make up has been applied. I use it religiously on shoots and when I travel.

-Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, £20 – A definite must-have!

-Chanel Joues Contraste Blusher in 72 Rose Initiale, £31 – This is a great blush for all seasons as it's soft in colour but applied across the apples of the cheeks creates a really healthy natural look.

-B. Vivid Eyeshadow in Charcoal, £2.99 – The perfect shadow to go from day to evening, its soft and blendable and can be applied with the finger tips making it a great product for the make-up bag!

-B. Loud High Volume Mascara in Black 100, £7.99 - This is my new favourite mascara by far. It's amazing brush makes for an easy application and the rich black pigment really sticks to your lashes all day long.
