Remember the last time I shared a what’s in my bag post?
I don’t know if it’s just me, but ever since I got into beauty and makeup, I’ve always wanted a makeup bag. Not only want a makeup bag, but also have enough makeup to fill the bag. Lol. I know, I know, there’s bigger problems than filling up a makeup bag but hey, life is short.
I know I mentioned a couple of posts back that I wear makeup about 6 days a week. Well, that’s the reason why I carry a makeup bag with me almost everyday. It probably is the reason my handbag gets so heavy sometimes. I was lucky enough to get my makeup bag as a gift (mentioned about it here and here) on my birthday last year, and I’ve been using it ever since. I love its size, it’s pretty compact; it can hold a lot without taking up too much space. Best thing about it is that I can also add more beauty bits as I please. Plus, it allows me to be able to have products with me on-the-go, especially if I know I’ll have to switch up my makeup so it can transition to nighttime appropriate. (Post on this, anyone?)
Behold, what’s in my makeup bag…
I usually carry what I consider essentials in my makeup bag: an eyebrow brush (of which the comb part is now unfortunately broken), a powder brush, blush/bronzer, a nail file (so random lol), lipstick, face powder, an assortment of lip pencils, lip balm, lip gloss, mascara and eyeliner.
MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Powder in Dark
Elf Face Powder Brush
Elf Eyebrow Brush
NYX Baked Blush
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara
L’Oreal Superliner Eyeliner (I keep 2 because I can’t let go of one that’s drying up. Lol.)
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Black
MAC Flat Out Fabulous Lipstick
MAC Pink Plaid Lipstick
Vaseline Lip Therapy Aloe Vera Lip Balm
MAC Cremesheen Glass in Galaxy Rose
LA Colours Lip Pencil in Burgundy (one of my favourites)
A Davis cheap lip/eye pencil that works great both ways.
NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Nude Truffle
LA Colours Lipliner Pencil in Forever Red
MAC Magenta Lip Pencil
NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches & Cream
MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick
I admit that I keep a whole lot of lip products in my makeup bag, but that’s because they’re my favourite part of my face. I feel like changing my lip colour can take me from day to night with the swipe of an application. No? Looking forward to growing my makeup bag collection!
What do you keep in your makeup bag?
