What’s in my makeup bag?


This is my first contributor post so I’d figured I’d start by giving you more than a sneak peek into my makeup bag!  I like to keep my beauty look very chic but the application process very simple. Here goes. I start off every day with using my Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 15. I have been using this moisturizer for about three years now and it works great with my dry skin and the oil-free formula does not make my skin feel greasy or cause breakouts. I then use Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer in Sand to cover any blemishes and under eye dark circles. Then for some color, I use Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Powder foundation in Medium Sandy Beige applied with MAC kabuki brush #182. On to the lashes, I use my Shu Uemura eyelash curler (which I just heard was discontinued so I will soon be on the search for a new eyelash curler that works well with my stubborn eyelashes!) and Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara in Extreme Black. I finish my look with CoverGirl Liquilineblast in Black which makes a super smooth sleek black line on my top lid – making my eyes look brighter and bigger (also an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner). The pencil also has a rubber side to smudge the liner for a more dramatic look. On my lips, I use Blistex DCT lip balm to keep my lips conditioned and smooch-soft!

Please let me know what’s in your makeup bag and if we share any products in common! Any suggestions on a good eyelash curler are welcome!

    I can’t believe the eyelash curler from Shu has been discontinued!That is devastating! Another alternative is using the eyelash curler from Shiseido. Their curlers are made by the same company that made Shu’s but I’m hoping that these aren’t discontinued either!
    I’m looking for a new concealer so I’ll have to check out the one you recommend from Maybelline. Great tips for drugstore makeup! Keep it up!
