The Basic Makeup Kit

Ever been in a situation where your asked to present a basic makeup kit? but you have absolutely no idea what that should include. *Raises hand* I’m going for an interview tomorrow for a place at university and I was asked to bring along a ‘basic makeup kit’. I had no idea what I should and should not take with me bit I think; after long hours of researching, that I have managed to get the basics down to a t. The one thing that I did not think would be hard to find, was the bag to store everything in. I had my heart set on a gorgeous one from Paul and Joe. But after being on the phone to Selfridges and P&J themselves I found out it had been discontinued. Bummer. I was then on the search for something oh so similar, just my luck that everything I found was either sold out, discontinued or nearly triple the price. I was beginning to loose hope a bit and just settle on using an old one my mum used to use, until I found this one in Mac. I was in the Mac store yesterday buying eyeshadows for my palette when I saw this beauty. The women in the shop was so helpful and told me she had the exact same one and that it’s amazing. It did however cost me an arm and a leg, at £46.50 the price is a little more that I had bargained for but being 2 days before my actual interview I needed it.
