what’s in my makeup bag? + 3 products i cant live without
Have you ever wondered what other people have in their makeup bags? Today, I will be showing you everything I have in my everyday makeup bag. These are things I use on my face regularly for school or an evening outing. It doesn’t include things I would apply when I want to do a bold makeup. Without any further delay, let’s get into it.
I love to use a medium coverage foundation on my face before I apply powder. I feel like everything looks more flawless. Just to let you know, I don’t use it everyday especially when I am running late for class. But when I have the time, I do. My favorite foundation, for now, is the Fenty beauty foundation. It’s awesome. Here are some great drugstore foundations for oily skin if you need some new foundation to try.
Concealer is a must-have especially when you have dark circles. Luckily for me, I was able to get rid of mine and I spoke all about how I did it here. I love to use concealer when I want to define my brows or when I need to brighten up my under eyes a little bit. This comes in handy during exam time.
I also spoke about my favorite drugstore concealer here and the list is huge. 10 of them!
Pressed powder is something I use every single day. Sometimes I don’t even apply anything on my face just the powder and I will still be looking fresh. When it comes to pressed powder, I will advise you to spend that money and get a nice one because the cheap ones will make your face look red or ashy. I have a post coming up about my favorite pressed powders but for now, the Mac pressed powder does wonder and the Maybelline fit me powder as well if you need something more affordable.
A lot of people prefer to use the dip brow pomade but I found out that eyebrow pencil is just the right one for me. It is very easy to use and you can control the intensity of it much better than the dip brow pomades. My eyebrows are already very full so I just need to do a little touch upon them and they will be perfect. Here is how I grew my lashes and eyebrows In case you want to grow yours too.
Eye pencil and eyeliner
If you haven’t tried those pen eyeliner, you’re honestly left behind. Those things are magical. They are very easy to use and with them, anybody can do a cat-eye.
Eye pencils are something I use not so often on my waterlines but it’s always great to add a touch of color under your eyes because it makes them pop.
This is a must-have! A good mascara will make your face look so different and very pretty. Apart from having long lashes, a good mascara will make you look like you have false lashes on when you don’t. I will be writing a detailed post about my favorite mascara so make sure to hang around on my Instagram and Twitter so that you will be the first to know when the post goes up.
Highlighter and blush
These are not necessary but I love to add colors and shine to my face. I love to highlight the bridge of my nose and add blush to my cheeks and my favorite highlighter is the Maybelline master chrome and the balm highlight and contour palette.
Lipgloss and lip balm
This is one of my favorite parts of the routine. Keeping your lips soft and hydrated is very important. For lipgloss and lip balm, I use anyone available at the store or the first one I was able to reach for in my bag because I have at least 5 in there.
If I was to have only three products for life, what will they be?
I will go for pressed powder, lip gloss and of course mascara. The rests are not as important.
