What's in my Makeup Bag?

Thursday, August 30, 2012

I never used to be into makeup and to this day I still don't go crazy with it. But there are several products I cannot live without and will continue buying forever.

Here's what's in my makeup bag at the moment. These are my everyday items that I can put on in about 10 minutes.

Almay Intense i-Color: This mascara is very similar to the clinque product, but about half the price. It has a big brush and really extends the eyelashes. Be sure to use eye makeup remover with it though.

Dream Matte Mousse: (in Classic Ivory) I use this as my base/foundation, it's really smooth and covers up any blemishes or pimples. I'm

Mac creme blush: (in BritWit) I mostly use this in the winter to give my cheeks some more color. It's kind of the same consistency as lip balm and you really don't need to use a lot to get a lot of color.

Mac eyeshadow: (in Gleam) I love this color because it works for day and night.

Benefit Box o Powder (in Dallas and Coralista or Sugarbomb): This is my favorite bronzer and highlighter. These boxes last nearly six months. I use Dallas as my bronzer and Coralista (or Sugarbomb) as my highlighter, which adds a nice layer of shimmer.

What are your must-have makeup items? Do you use a combination of drug store makeup and designer?



  1. i used to use that mousse..i liked it. my go-tos are a mix of drug store and Bobbi Brown, Josie Maran, Laura Mercier here and there.

  2. I love Benefit's "Dallas" blush/contour! Use it atleast once a week. Haven't tried "Coralista", but only because it seems similar to NARS's "Orgasm"...which I love, am obsessed with! lol
