I have been reading a lot of makeup bag posts lately and have decided to jump on the bandwagon and reveal what some of my favorite makeup to use is. I should tell you that I don’t use all of these everyday, just when I’m going out on the weekends or to an event. My morning makeup routine is very simple and I can share that with you as well!

Good makeup that works for you is a rarity so when you find it, I’m a firm believer in sticking to it. I hardly ever venture out from what works for me, unless I received a sample in my Ipsy bag or another friend recommended it to me.

So what’s in my makeup bag?

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

1. Maybelline BB Cream in Medium

I use this everyday. This is my go-to and pretty much has replaced foundation.

2. Ulta Beauty Baked Bronzer

I love this bronzer and have been using it for years. It gives a nice shimmer and is pretty reasonable price wise. I also use this every day.

3. Benefit Watts Up 

The best highlighter in my opinion! I won’t switch for anything!

4. Benefit They’re Real mascara

My favorite mascara and my go-to all the time.

5. Tarte 4 in 1 mascara

Another mascara that I do like and it gives a slightly less dramatic look than Benefit which I like if I’m not trying to really dress up my eyes.

6. Rimmel quad eye shadow

I got this for Christmas from my mom and I must say it’s really awesome.

7.  Mary Kay makeup primer

I LOVE this primer!! It goes on sooooo smooth it’s crazy!!

8. Maybelline Brow Pencil in dark blonde

We all know I won’t leave the house without my eyebrows done-this is a great alternative to Anastasia Brow Wiz that is so expensive.

9. Rimmel Kohl Eye Liner

Another Christmas gift that I really love as well! Goes on pretty smooth for a drugstore brand.

10. NYC Concealer

For the price, you can’t beat it. It works really great, honestly.

11. Pacifica eye shadow in Treasure

This is a really AWESOME shadow!!

12. Manna Kadar Sheer Glo all over color

I put this on my cheeks every morning to give my skin a little extra glow. A little goes a long way and when I have extra on my fingers I’ll put some on my  eye lids as well.

Whew! That was a lot of makeup in my makeup bag and to be honest I do have a lot more but I just don’t use it nearly as much.  As far as the actual makeup bag goes, that was a gift from a student, it’s from Bath and Body Works! It’s so stinkin’ cute I just love using it!!

So lovelies, please tell me what your favorite makeup is use is and why!! Thanks! Have a great Tuesday!


xoxo Lindsay

    Oooh…I love a good ‘what’s in my bag’ (any bag!) post, so thanks for letting us take a peek! I have that Watts Up and haven’t quite figured out the best way to use it (I either use too heavy a hand with highlighters, or too light…need to find my happy medium!). I’ll have to add a few of these other items on my list of things to try :). Fun post!

      I use it right under and above my eyebrows, also under my bottom lip and straight down my nose.

    I’ve just started using BB and CC cream and I really like it. For years I used Mary Kay make up an I really like that too but it just got too expensive. Thanks for sharing this! I love seeing what make up other people use.

    Oooh! Love these “What’s in your bag” type posts. I’m in love with Benefit Brow Zings for my non-existent, I inherited no eyebrows from my mother.
    Apart from that, whatever. Give me some eyeliner and any mascara and that’s my routine day to day. I have crazy long eyelashes so it doesn’t matter what mascara I use, they always look amaze-balls. Hands down where I get the most compliments, eyes and eyelashes.

    I need to do post like this soon. Maybe do one tomorrow! A lot of the make up I use is The NYC brand. It’s good stuff for an even better price!
