What's In My School Makeup Bag?

Today's postie wostie is going to be on my school makeup routine. I called this 'What's In My School Makeup Bag' because I really just didn't know what this would be called. It's kind of a mixture of what I wear to go and what I bring with me to top up throughout the day. 

It really depends on how much makeup your school allows you to wear. I know some schools don't let you wear any makeup, some have restrictions but mine doesn't actually care! We even have people at my school with the whole shabang - fake tan, caked face, false eyelashes, bright lipstick. Yep, classy lot we are...
All of these things were bought with my own money, and are from drugstores because I am skint so I don't have any high end products. (for those of you who are not Scottish, which I am assuming is most, 'skint' is a scottish slang word for having no money..) Right, I think I have babbled enough. In the wise words of my dad, I have just "opened my mouth and let my guts rumble". No, I don't understand it either.

I mix The Body Shop Moisture Foundation (shade 3) with 17 Skin Perfection Foundation (shade 'natural')
Set with Collection 2000 sheer loose powder 'translucent'
Dark circles and spots covered with Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer shade 2 light
blush is Collection 2000 blush in 'bashful'
highlighter is Benefit High Beam

Clinique Pretty In Prints Palette (I use the pale ivory colour all over my lid and the dark brown for my brows)
Bare Minerals black waterproof eyeliner
Soap & Glory Thick & Fast mascara - black
Vaseline Rosy Lips

ELF Powder Brush for my foundation
ELF Complexion Brush for powder and blusher
Primark concealer brush for well...concealer
random eyeshadow brush from Boots
I also use the eyeshadow one in the Clinique palette

mini nail file
eyeshadow brush (just incase i get any creases)
Vaseline Rosy Lips
Soap & Glory Thick & Fast mascara
Bare Minerals black eyeliner
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
Benefit High Beam

So tell me, did any of you go to IMATS? Tell me what it was like and let me pretend that I was there with you...
