What is all in this make up bag?
The products I keep in my make up bag are the products I use on a daily base at this moment. Let me share with you what’s in it!
First, this Porcelain Rose wash bag is from Ted Baker, which you can buy at Ted Baker of course or at the Bijenkorf (The Netherlands) for €38. I’m loving all prints and colors from the Ted Baker collection, but I eventually picked this one because of its timeless color.
My favorite beauty product at the moment are lipsticks. Every color for every mood and it changes your whole facial expression. The lipstick I cary around very often these days is the Satin Twig from MAC for €19. I really, really love the Satin collection because it’s not too shiny and not too dry and kinda feels like it’s feeding my lips. It’s not a bright or notable color which suits good for my daily make up.
These two products or at least one of ‘em I need everyday. My concealer and highlighter. Bot from MAC, the matchmaster concealer and the select moisturecover for €21,50 and €18,50 Make sure you buy your concealer two shades lighter than your skin tone is. After that I highlight my under eyes in the shape of a triangle. The concealer is fluid and the structure of the highlighter is creamy, which gives my skin a glowy look. At first I used brushes to apply these two products, but I think it stays better in place if I blend it out with a blend brush.
I almost everyday put on eyeliner on my upper eye. If I’m in a rush I put on eyeliner on my under eye, or not at all. 😀 And sometimes wing it and sometimes I don’t. Depends on my mood. Again, both MAC products. This MAC fluid eyeliner really stays in place for the whole day and that is something I really need because I can get a greasy T-zone + eyes. The blue blender in my make up bag is from Primark, for only €2,50! When I’m in a darkeyes mood I also put eyeliner, the Modern twist Kajal liner for €16,50 on my under eyelid for a more romantic effect. You don’t have to sharpen this pencil with a pencil sharpener, you can just twist it. But not like a lipstick, once you’ve twist it up you can’t twist it down so be careful and don’t twist it too hard!
I have used and tried many mascara’s. I love L’Oreal and Chanel mascara’s, but at the moment I use Essence Crazy Volume mascara which I bought from the drugstore for only €2,89. For this price it’s really worth a try.
I am that kind of girl that has many kinds and colors of blushes. I do not stick to just one and I’ma keep buying them. I love to try them out, from cheap ones to Chanel ones. But right now I have the MAC pro longwear blush in fleeting romance €25,50 in my make up bag. From all the blushes that I’ve tried, MAC is one of favorites.
It takes a little bit of extra time in the morning, but it’s really worth the effort. You will agree when you see the effect it has on your look. I use this MAC fluid brow gel in color deep brow brunette €19 to make my look really complete. They stay in shape all day. Full(er) brows finish your whole make up look. Of course you can decide how much you want to fill them up. Even just a little brush through your brows can do some magic.
The brushes that I use for my brows are from MAC. One to brush through my brows, the 204 lash brush €11 and the other one, 208 angle brow brush €22, to apply my brow gel. For the blush I use a H&M kabuki brush for only €9,99. The lash curler is from Bobbi Brown, €22 and I must say that the more expensive ones don’t cut my eye lids! I am very happy with this one. And at last I always have have a pocket mirror in my (make up) bag. This one is from Chanel, for €29. I am never going to toss this one away!
I don’t know what to do if I forget to take one of these with me… 😯
