What's in My Make-Up Bag?


I don't know if I'm the only one, but I often wonder what kind of make-up other women wear. I am a lover of beauty products and while I don't wear make-up every day, I do believe in using quality stuff. 

In light of my love of all things beauty, I decided to share what's in my make-up bag!

Now, I know it looks as though my make-up bag is overflowing with goodies, but I'll be honest, I don't use half of that stuff, or at least not on a daily basis. More of it gets used depending on how special the occasion is. Sometimes the entire bag is necessary, right ladies?

Above is the stuff I use on a somewhat daily basis. I say somewhat because I don't actually wear make-up every day. But when I do feel like putting on make-up, the above things are what I use. Here's a breakdown of what's up there, from left to right:

1. MAC Studio Tech Foundation
2. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
3. Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Powder
4. Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner 
5. Cover Girl Blush 
6. Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara
7. Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner
8. Eyes. Lips. Face. Eye Shadow Palette 
9. MAC Fix+ Skin Refresher/Finishing Mist

This is the stuff that goes on my face when I'm not too lazy to put on make-up in the morning. I first starting using MAC last year when I got the foundation, concealer, and Fix+ for my birthday and let me tell you I was hooked! Once you go MAC, you never go back.
I got turned onto the Maybelline gel eyeliner when my former roommate and best friend was using it and I borrowed hers. I would HIGHLY recommend getting it because it lasts the entire day (even if you take a nap!). The Eyeko liquid liner came in one of my Birchboxes a couple of months ago and I love it! It's great if you want the cat eye/winged liner effect but you don't have the time to use the gel liner. 
One of my girlfriends gave me the ELF palette for Christmas and I am still thankful. It has so many different colors and it's not even their biggest eye shadow palette. 

Since I've shared what's in my make-up bag, maybe one day I'll share how I actually apply all of this stuff!
