Whether I am wearing a full face of makeup or just a little bit of lip balm, I always bring my makeup bag with me. I frequently change the items I carry in it, but I keep a few essentials that I may reach for anytime, anywhere.
The bag that I have been using the most is my Vera Bradley Small Cosmetic Bag (this pattern is called Lime’s Up). I enjoy the bright pattern and surprisingly, it can contain a lot of stuff! Cotton on the outside and plastic inside, so it can be easily wiped clean. Inside the bag there are always: a hairband, a lip balm, an eyelash curler, Ilia beauty Nobody’s Baby (favorite!), a mascara, a small mirror. Everything else changes according to the look of the day, but those things are always in there. The lip balm I usually carry with me is the Hurraw Blue Chamomile Vanilla Lip Balm, which smells AMAZING and looks very nice worn alone or on top of any lipstick. For sudden eyelash curling needs, I normally bring La Metier De Beaute, because it has a softer pad compared to Shu and Shiseido, (my all time faves), so it is more gentle on lashes after mascara. Another must have is my PureBrow Brow Fix & Mascara from Jane Iredale , which I may need if my tiny brow hairs start to rebel against the shape I give them. For the rest of the makeup: on my lips, I am wearing Ilia Beauty in Nobody’s Baby, but I brought Dress You Up too, just in case. On my cheeks is Vapour Beauty Blush In Spark and the Ilia Beauty Illuminator in Sway as bronzer . For eyes I am using Jane Iredale eyeliner in Black-Brown and bareMinerals Volumizing Mascara, (not very “clean”, unfortunately, but I really wanted a little extra volume today.) I also brought my tiny sample of my W3ll People Narcissist Concealer, shade number 2. Finally, my fountain of youth, the RMS Living Luminizer and the RMS Beauty Cream Shadow in Karma, in case I want to add just a little bit more drama to my eyes later in the evening. The only thing I don’t usually carry with me despite my oily T-Zone is my face powder, which I substitute with some Tatcha blotting sheets. I literally just ran out of them, but I should receive some refill packs this afternoon. And that is it, for today.
