What's in my Makeup Bag?


I realized it's been awhile since I posted an update on what makeup I'm lugging around with me day-to-day. I've still been doing a quite minimal, easy look. I still enjoy the process of putting makeup on during the week, but I've just got so much less time to play around than on the weekends. I keep my makeup bag stocked with foolproof products that I know work for me.


Lately I haven't been wearing foundation much and have instead been using the Milk Makeup Flex Concealer on any areas where I need coverage. It looks just like skin, yet still gives great coverage, so it's a great option for a no-foundation look. As for other skin products, I obviously need all four shades of Glossier Cloud Paint* with me at all times - I love all four shades, so which ones I choose really just depends on my mood. They don't take up much room, so it's nice to keep all four around to mix together if the mood strikes. I also need to always have my Glossier Haloscope in Moonstone and Wowder* to dew-up my cheekbones and un-dew the center of my face.

My brows are still being taken care of by the trusty combo of Glossier Boy Brow in Brown and the Nyx Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe. These give me the full, fluffy brow look that I'm always after. I've been getting back into putting some kind of eyeshadow on everyday, and right now I've got two options: Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color in Angel for when I'm wanting something shimmery and champagne, and Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Meteore when I want something more bronze and an extra bit of sparkle. They're both beautiful formulas that will not budge all day. My signature outer corner smudge of brown eyeliner is always taken care of by the Colourpop Eyeliner in Brew-Haha (although I always forget to include it in photos), and the L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Black Brown is an everyday staple, too. 

As for lips, I've been trying to keep things minimal and only have two in my makeup bag. The Nudestix Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm in Pulse is an everyday go-to at the moment, as the plummy-nude shade is perfect for the cooler weather we've been having. When I want something a little more sheer and moisturizing, I've been going for the Fresh Sugar Cream Lip Treatment* in Baby. These are beautiful and add just a little bit of shimmer to the lips, too.
