What's in My Makeup Bag?


I see videos of this tag all over Youtube a lot and I think it's fun to see what people use enough to keep in their makeup bag! That's how I use mine at least. These products are ones that I use when I wear makeup and keep handy so I don't have to go diggin' for them.




Makeup Bag- I got this cute quilted makeup bag with black piping and a cute black bow from Forever 21 for $6.80 and I love it! I get a lot of compliments from anyone who sees it.

| Face |
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB in Light- this is my favorite skin product! It gives just enough color to even the skin tone but doesn't look like I'm wearing anything. I've been going makeup-less lately (woohoo Summer!) but this is used constantly the school year. I love that it's lightly moisturizing at that it feels good on my skin.
Beauty Blender- I generally use my fingers to apply my BB cream then I go in with a little more makeup on a beauty blender on my forehead and any imperfections. I need to buy a new one soon since mine is getting a little worn out.
Essence Blush in Chaising Lacy- I just did a review on this (right here!) and I love it. It's very natural but gives me some color. I haven't tried it out since getting "tan" but I'm sure it'll look lovely when I do! It's buildable so I know it will still show up well.
Elf High Definition Powder in Translucent- The combination of this and my BB seems nearly sweat proof! I was wearing this at an outside party in 90-degree weather and I felt like my face was probably shiny but it wasn't! My sister (she has a blog!) said it still looked great.
H&M Baby Kabuki Brush- I use this to apply my powder and it's awesome! I think I paid $3.95 and it's really soft and I wasn't expecting to be really good quality.

| Eyes |
Great Lash Clear Mascara- I use this to set my eyebrows (who are rather difficult, I must add) and I think this is my third tube. I used to use an actual "eyebrow gel" which was more expensive but I don't see much of a difference.
Wet'n'Wild Mega Liner in Black- I use this to tight line when I wear mascara and I love that it lasts all day and doesn't transfer to my bottom waterline. I'll warn ya'll that you have to let it dry before letting you let your eyelid down or it may get in your eye. Once it's dry, though, it won't go anywhere!
Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes Mascara- I recently did a review (here if you want to take a look!) and it's in there since I used it just the other day. As of right now, I think it's alright right now so hopefully I can get used to it.

| Lips |
Luxe Reve de Miel- This is like my emergency lip balm. I use it for a pick-me-up when my lips are getting a little exhausted. It smells like sightly sugary lemon and it's wonderful!
EOS in Medicated Tangerine- I have nearly every flavor (scent?) of EOS and I think it may be my favorite. I like that it's more than just a moisturizer since it has antibacterial properties as well!
Maybelline Color Elixir in Radiant Orchid- I love this color so much. It's a relatively neutral-toned pink, but it leans towards blue. Since I have yellow toned skin I think cool colors look so vibrant. I did a review of this color and Hibiscus Haven in this review.

| Hair |
Lush Shine So Bright Balm- I bought this a few months ago and I'm so impressed! It was about $10 so I had pretty high hopes and they weren't let down. It smells really good and just a tiny bit goes a long way. It really gives sad hair ends a good, shiny hug. 
MetaGrip Bob Pins- I usually keep this and my Shine So Bright in my purse during the school year, but they hang out in my makeup bag during the Summer. These are the best bobby pins I've ever used. They grip hair and really stay in place no matter what.

| Hands |
Ahava Mineral Hand Cream- I keep this at school since it's small and handy and it absorbs really fast. It also smells really fresh which is nice. I got this in my Birchbox a while ago and I'm pretty impressed.

That's all that was in there! Well, excluding a few tampons and some wet wipes. Keepin' it real, guys.
Thanks for reading! xo

  4. I really like your makeup bag! All the makeup bags at my Forever 21 don't look that great, they have a cheap quality to them. But the one who have looks really nice :)

  5. I love posts like these haha. I was wondering how you felt of the overall formula of the Color Elixirs? I have been hesitant to try them because of their price for a drugstore product.

    1. I actually really like them! They do have a weird smell however, so if you're put off by that I would stay away. I have a full review of them if you'd like to take a look!
