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!
