Inside My Makeup Bag: August 2017

Under my bathroom sink, in a large quilted bag, sits the tools for the natural look I go for every day. My makeup bag – like many others – is a reflection of myself. From my matte powder to my lengthening mascara, everything in there helps me show off my face in the best way possible.

Earlier this year I shared my full cupboard of beauty products, and as time has changed and I’ve moved to another city, I thought it was time I shared the more condensed version of my current makeup bag.Read More

Inside My Makeup Bag

While reading through questions and suggestions from you all, I see lots of comments about wanting to see “Inside My” posts. Inside my purse, inside my backpack, inside my closet, and finally, inside my makeup bag.

Originally, I wanted to just do a quick post on what’s in my makeup bag on an everyday basis, but when I started to do that I realized that while there are certain staples I stick to, I don’t have an everyday basis makeup routine. Yesterday I wore eyeshadow, today I wore highlighter, last week I was obsessed with bronzer, and if the air isn’t too dry tomorrow I’ll likely wear vampy lipstick. Even the small changes of choosing blush v bronzer makes my makeup routine inconsistent, so I thought that I would instead share the products in my makeup bag (it’s actually a drawer) that I use fairly regularly. And then note what I use most often and any comments I have.

To note: I have a light skin tone with cool undertones, blue-grey eyes, and oily skin. These factors influence what products and colours I purchase.

So, who’s ready to go inside my makeup bag/drawer?Read More
