This is a super candid post. No, I didn’t go through and pick any of this stuff and just put it in my makeup bag to show you guys. This is what is in my makeup bag RIGHT NOW. No joke. P.S. My makeup bag is looking kind of rough (this is real-life y’all)… any makeup bag suggestions would be awesome!
What’s in my bag?
Although it may look as though I have a ton of randomness in here, there’s actually a method to the madness. Well, sort of! Haha.
I’ve been loving Amorepacific Moisture Bound Tinted Treatment Moisturizer. This stuff is AMAZING. I love the fact that it build so well. You can wear it very light or more full coverage.
The Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand is really nice. It is more of a highlighter concealer than anything else. I have enjoyed using it for the summer months. It has two ends, one is a concealer and the other is a eye cream. Very innovative!
NARS Laguna Liquid Bronzer gives the most healthy glow. It is absolutely stunning on. It looks so natural and very sun-kissed. Highly recommend if you haven’t tried it!
I’m kind of obsessed with the Tarte x Aspen Novard palette. It has the most beautiful blush. It is called “Made You Blush.” It blends like a dream and sits well on top of makeup.
I’ve been pretty basic with my eyeshadow recently. A sweep of color is so nice. I’ve also been using the eyeshadow as a liner. It’s soft and really pretty. The Aspyn Ovard x Tarte palette is so nice, but I am also loving the Nars x Erdem Fleur Fatale eyeshadow palette. It’s gorgeous. All of these shades are super buttery and beautiful on.
I’ve found a few awesome mascaras from my Mascara Mondays (every Monday I try out a new mascara – putting it to the test! Check it out!). I have a Guerlain Maxilash Volumizing and Curling mascara and a Charlotte Tilbury mascara, and both have exceeded my expectations! I think I’m liking the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 one better, but both are great!
There are so many lip products I love. I just got this Lawless Soft Matte Liquid Lipstick in George. It is so nice. It doesn’t dry down super matte. I would say it is more semi-matte and it lasts. I think that is the best of both worlds because it isn’t super drying.
Ohhh I have also been loving this Givenchy Le Rouge Matte Lipstick in Nude Androgyne. It is a beautiful nude shade that isn’t drying. It’s gorgeous on!
Tools and Brushes
I have a mix of brushes from Morphe, Bobbi Brown, Bare Minerals and IT Cosmetics. I really like the Morphe brushes. This one is pretty similar to the one I bought. So affordable too for the quality!
I hope you enjoyed this rendition of what’s in my makeup bag! I love writing about it. It’s a lot of fun! Comment below and let me know!
Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
