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?
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!
