What’s in My Makeup Bag! Face and Lip Products

The contents of my makeup bag are constantly changing. I try to test out new products but still give attention to each of my beloved makeup items. I also try to ensure the contents of my makeup bag would be suited to the outfit I’m wearing. During the week while avoiding the traffic, I arrive rather early at my workplace so this is where I usually apply my makeup. On weekends I can spend as much time as I want rummaging through all the makeup drawers for whatever colours or tools I need for that look. Whereas most of my co-workers may carry lunch bags, I carry to work my makeup bag, disguised as a lunch bag! 



My makeup bag comes with a small pouch which contains my lip products. Inside of the main bag I also keep my makeup brushes. I’m crazy about the Real techniques set since it comes with a fold up case perfect for me to carry around. Full review coming soon! 

A little dirty but still loved!
What else is in there? Meet my face products! I recently got the Maybelline Fit Me powder and foundation and love them. You get a dewy finish from the foundation and the tiniest hint of shimmer that makes my skin glow with the powder. But before I apply these two babies, I apply some eye cream (L’Oreal Skin Genesis) and prime the face with Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing primer. 




I usually carry about two blushes, one shimmer and one matte. The Milani baked powder blush in Luminoso give a gorgeous glow to the cheeks while imparting a peachy colour. NYX espresso is a muted pink with brown tones that I usually reserve for my meeting days. 

I change my lip products often. Lately I have been loving MAC Velvet Teddy for its long wearing matte finish and skin tone colour. But when I want a punch of colour with shine, MAC Sheen Supreme Ultra Darling is what I reach for. 

 
I don’t dare leave home with my MAC lip conditioner. It’s been my latest lip obsession. But for some summer punches of lip colour I resort to MAC Impassioned lipglass or NYX sheer gloss in peach.

Would you believe that’s only half of the stuff I carry about in my makeup bag? Wow. Stay tuned for part 2 where I show you all my eye products. 

Was there something in my makeup bag you liked? Do you carry around that much stuff?
Happy Makeup Bags!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
