What's In My Makeup Bag

by - March 26, 2018

Okay, 2018 is flying by. I can't believe it. Just had to get that out there.

Today, as you can tell from the title, I'm sharing some of my favorite makeup products. I have a makeup organizer with drawers, but I keep my most-used products in a makeup bag! Because I spend every weekend in downtown Atlanta with David, I usually don't unpack my makeup bag each time. I'm lazy, I know.

I do really basic makeup every day for work. It's usually just enough to cover some acne and my under-eye circles and make my eyes pop! Nothing too wild, but I have a couple holy grail products that I can't live without. There are a couple affiliate links here, but all opinions are my own!

On a budget? Me too. That's why these are drugstore products!

This post contains affiliate links, but as always, I only support and work with brands I love.

For The Face
L'Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation - best foundation ever and this matte formula is perfect for oily skin!
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer - this is incredible! I have dark circles under my eyes that don't go away no matter how much sleep I get, but this concealer covers those and any other blemishes I have.
L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder - perfect powder! I use this to set everything.
Wet N Wild Bronzer - gotta bronze it up! This is great and I use it to slightly contour (or attempt to at least lol) and I also put a bit on my neck.
Milani Baked Blush - gotta add a little blush! This is great and doesn't break the bank! My second favorite is NARS, which is a bit pricey, so definitely a treat yo'self product!

For The Eyes
L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise - I've got short lashes, but this adds a little length and volume! I've heard that this is a dupe to the Better Than Sex mascara, but I've never tried it, so I'm not sure about that.
Maybelline Eye Studio Master Eyeliner - this is a great eyeliner that stays on all day.

EcoTools Total Perfecting Blender
EcoTools Blending and Bronzing Brush
EcoTools Precision Blush Brush

These are the products that I pretty much use every day! Pretty basic, but great products that last all day long.

Do you use any of these products?

If I could pick one product ONLY.... I'd probably choose the concealer. My skin kind of hates me and a little concealer makes me feel better. What about you?
