Hey guys, for a while now I’ve been seeing the “whats in my makeup bag hack” on blogs and youtube channels, so I decided to share with you whats in mine. This is specially for those of you who are 9-5 WORKING CLASS LADIES, who have little or no time to do their makeup in the morning before rushing of to work, or if you are the type to always touch up your make-up all through the day or even when you go for a sleep over at your friend’s or boyfriend’s (side eyes) and do not want to carry so much in your bag.
These are basically makeup essencials that are almost a must in your carry-around make-up bag and because I choose to make this post as short as possible i’ll be going straight to the point.
MAKE-UP FOR EVER – ULTRA HD FOUNDATION
Foundations are a necessity for a makeup bag because in as much as you have that almost perfect flawless skin (“I woke up like this” kind of skin) lol, you still want to look glowed up and bright for the day. I carry around a foundation because sometimes I go out wearing just sunglasses and really don’t know exactly how the day is going to play out, I mean, I always want to be prepared.
MAC – CREMESHEEN GLASS
An everyday wearable lipgloss is a must for a carry-around makeup bag. This item comes in very handy if you love your lips to stay moisturized all day long and also if your end game is to keep it natural,mild and glossy. I recommend to have one lipgloss in every bag if you must, just so you don’t leave the house without having something to fall back on when out in your office, after eating lunch or just hanging out. I love to carry around with me one lipgloss, just to keep my lips moisturized throughout the day or even for touch ups.
MAC – MINI EYE SHADOW PALETTE
For eyeshadow I carry a mini palette that I know would give me a neutral to bold makeup look. This palette has six different colours which has three lusters and three mattes. Doing my makeup outside the comfort of my home and makeup tools, I always try to keep it as simple as possible and this shadow palette simply does the job for me.
THE COLOSSAL KAJAL BY MAYBELLINE
If you are looking to keep your eyes bright then you definitely need a black pencil in that bag for your waterline during the day and if you decide to hang out with the girls at night this black pencil can be used to smoke out those eyes to give you an even more intense and bold look. I take this item with me cause it really doesn’t hurt to be extra hot, right?
MAC – STUDIO FIX PRESSED POWDER
A pressed powder does it for me especially since i get oily sometimes when I’m stressed out with work or even by just being out in the sun during the day. Also, it is very essential that you set your foundation with powder to get that radiant finished look. I always have one in my makeup bag.
BEAUTY TREATS – BROWN EYE PENCIL
I carry this brown pencil just to fill in my brows mostly around the ends where I have less hair, remember I’m not trying to achieve a full face glam with these items, so if you do this you don’t want to do too much. So, I basically just fill my brow ends with this and I’m good to go.
BENEFIT – THEY ARE REAL MASCARA
A mascara is a carry-around makeup bag must for me and since I’m not bothered about bringing along with me false lashes and glue, I take this mascara with me just to give my natural lashes more volume than they already have and also make them darker, more visible and elongated.
REAL TECHNIQUES BRUSHES
I definitely wasn’t going to leave out the tools, they are very helpful when applying makeup products, mostly foundations and powder. I take at least two brushes, one that can be used to apply foundation and another for powder. You must be wondering why I didn’t add any brush for eyeshadow, i’ll tell you why? My eyeshadow palette has a little applicator that has a blending blush at the other end.
Thats basically all I keep in my makeup bag, I hope you enjoyed it.
