Get in my make-up bag: #1

I'm currently sat in bed wishing I had enough money to run around Selfridges (or Harrods, I'm not fussy) and buy the contents of my dream make-up bag, starting with the above. I was never really that into beauty, but recently I've turned into a make-up fiend - I'm totally obsessed with lipsticks, particularly pinky nude tones and since I tried this Illamasqua foundation I've not been able to get it off my mind. I've never really found a foundation that gives the amount of coverage I want and yet still looks natural, I'm currently using the much-raved-about Bourjois Healthy Mix but it just doesn't seem to sit right on my skin and I find it often goes patchy. I recently tried the Illamasqua Skin Base foundation, albeit in a shade slightly too dark for me, and fell completely in love: the texture, coverage and finish were perfect for me and I can't wait to get my hands on a bottle!

What's currently on your beauty wishlist?

Love Ellen xx

  6. I am exactly the same! I was never really that fussed about make-up but in the past few weeks I have become obsessed (probably due to the fact that I work in Covent Garden about a minute away from an amazing MAC shop...). I am soooo lusting over the Naked 2 Basics. xx
