A bit more than a year ago I didn't know much about makeup. So, I started researching online, trying stuff out, and talking with friends. Here are the things I always carry in my makeup bag, though I add and subtract some special things for weekends and special events.
Here's what I carry:
Moisturizer: Lush Imperialis because no one likes dry flakies.
Foundation: Clinique Acne Solutions I don't feel guilty using it because it has salicylic acid (Thanks Jill!)
For my dark circles: Garnier Skin Renewal concealer to cover purple tones & then Make Up For Ever concealer on top to lighten (in a 1 cuz I'm a paley palerson).
Cheeks: Maybelline Fit Blush, Benefit High Beam
Lips: I only use Nars and Burts Bees on my lips. Niagra is my everyday favorite!
Eyes: as a basic liner I use Cover Girl Perfect Point, for cateyes I use Line Stiletto eyeliner (not pictured), & my favorite Mascara is Maybelline Volum Express One by One. I use dark brown for eyeliners because black is too contrasty on my skin.
My super cute makeup bag was made by me when Elsie and I were writing our DIY Dress Up E-Course. You can learn to make one here for yourself!
Thanks for taking a peek into my bag ;)
