How have you guys been doing? I’ve been super busy this past few weeks with work. I’ve also been out of town for a work-related event but I still managed to have some fun under the blaring heat of the sun. I can tell you that I really wish this summer to be over! This is probably the hottest summer we’ve ever had in the Philippines and I am looking forward to cooler months!
For today’s post, I wanted to share with all of you the contents of my makeup bag! I realized that the contents of my makeup bag have changed quite a lot throughout the years. But the one that I carry now pretty much have my staple everyday makeup items. I also used to be that girl who carried way too much makeup on my makeup bag. I remember that 3 years ago, my purse was heavy just because of makeup! Haha. Well, I have learned my lesson and I now only carry basic items.
Here’s a quick shot of the contents of my pretty and pink makeup bag. This is not as full as how I carried my makeup bag years ago! That’s an improvement if you ask me!
Face Products include my favorite Ellana Minerals Cosmetics Let’s Make It Last Primer, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation and MAC Pro Longwear Concealer.
I also used to carry around 8 lip products in my makeup bag! I did a post once as to how many lip products I carried in my makeup bag! Surprisingly, a lot of you have the same “habit” of stacking up lip products in your makeup bags as me! Haha. I’ve recently tried to discipline myself and only carry a few lip products. So far, I can proudly say that I was able to limit myself to 3 lip products and these lip products are those that I really use on a day to day basis.
My makeup bag currently contains my favorite lip balm at the moment from Crazy Rumors (it smells and tastes like Lemon!), my MAC lipstick in Twig and a Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle. I alternate these lip products with the Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies in The Morning After and Crushing On You which are great, wearable shades!
For eye products, I only carry the Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara, a black eyeliner from Pixy, and the Etude House Brow Pencil and Brow Tint. I don’t use eyeshadow everyday but I always want defined eyes with full lashes that’s why I only bring mascara and eyeliner with me.
The round container in the picture below is actually a loose powder blush from Ellana Minerals Cosmetics in the shade Heaven. I have been loving products from this brand and I can’t wait to try out more of their blushes and powders!
I love Ecotools brushes because they fit nicely into my makeup bag and they have really great quality! I’ve had mine for 2 years now and they haven’t shed a single strand of hair yet!
My makeup bag also contains a few miscellaneous yet essential items. I have a tiny mirror, oil control film (a must have!), a few hair ties, bobby pins and a small hair clip, and a tiny bottle of perfume from Yves Rocher.
So, what’s in your makeup bag? Please leave a comment below and let me know coz I’m nosy like that! Haha. Or better yet, leave your links if ever you’ve made a “what’s in your makeup bag?” post.
