Bit of a strange title? Yes.  But what most people call a makeup bag, I call a pouch because not only does it keep all of those essential beauty bits in one place but it also holds various other day to day items.  So, without further ado, here is my pouch:

The 'pouch' itself is from The Body Shop, it came with a range of Vitamin E products in but due to its small-ness and see-through-ness it is now my pouch!

First up; hair saviours.  A dry shampoo can solve a multitude of hair issues and this tiny batiste one does the job well.  Along with that, I also carry around a texturising spray (Umburto Giannini - backcomb in a bottle) and a few clips, grips and hair bands/elastics to create a hairstyle in minutes.  Oh, and I never forget my mini hairbrush, complete with a mirror.
For makeup, I have the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, a mini They're Real mascara, Avon glimmerstick eyeliner, lip balm, Nars velvet matte lip pencil in Dolce Vita and oil absorbing sheets.  It doesn't seem like much but it corrects many a makeup malfunction, shiny face? Sudden spot?  Dry, chapped lips?  Worn off eye-makeup?  Faded lipstick?  I've got it all covered!

On top of that I also carry around a mini Aveeno moisteriser (which works on face, body and hands), mini Black Peony by ZARA perfume, ibuprofen (surprisingly handy!), safety pins (in case of a wardrobe malfunction), gum, and blister plasters.

It may seem like a lot but the beauty of the 'pouch' is that you can simply move it from one bag to the next and know that you will be covered!

What's in your 'pouch'?

P.S. I have to apologise for my blogging break.  I have been so busy lately and haven't felt inspired to post anything.  I don't want blogging to become a chore for me so decided it was best to take a break, hopefully I will be posting a bit more regularly now though.
