Since I recently did a post about what I carry around in my purse, I figured I would also do one about my makeup bag.
I carry totally separate bags during the work-week and on weekends. The purse I showed before is my weekend purse, and I don’t use a makeup bag in it.
This bag is what I carry with me to work. I like this case because it’s from the MAC Wonder Woman collection and is so fun! Love the shiny metallic blue material and the inside has blue and white stars. It makes it really easy to find what you’re looking for and it’s nice and roomy as well.
Here are the goods. Just the basics really. I don’t carry around a ton of stuff again, because I do not like the weight on my shoulders/neck. Plus really, who NEEDS it? 🙂
I’ve got a couple shades of the Evil Shades Deviant Lipstick in there because I like the portable easy containers and these colors go with a lot.
A tiny tube of Benefit Posetint is always handy for days when I look like a corpse by 2:00 pm.
MAC Suntints SPF 20 Liquid Lip Balm is my latest addition. Love the texture of this stuff!
The scent of the Origins A Perfect World is SO GOOD, I think I need a full size of this stuff.
Hair clip, which I haven’t worn in like 2 years.
Pink Sugar perfume sample (YUM).
MAC Kissable Lipcolour in Woo Me is another standard fav of mine because it’s a great nude/pink color that goes with almost anything. Sometimes (frequently) when I wear a bright red or pink lipstick I don’t feel like putting it back on after I eat lunch, so I wear this instead.
Time Balm concealer by TheBalm is one of my favorite concealers. If you use just a small amount it doesn’t usually crease (at least for awhile) so I like taking this one with me.
MAC Fix+ (travel-size) is another new edition. I LOVE this shizz! It helps wake me up on sleep afternoons in my cube. 😉
Vera Wang Princess is a rollerball I bought then was annoyed because I discovered this isn’t cruelty-free (I believe, not 100% positive). Oh well, too late and it smells nice. Love taking rollerballs around with me, they are the best for travel.
Nail clippers for hangnails. MUST HAVE.
Small sewing kit which I have never needed and had for at least 5 years.
Urban Decay Zero 24/7 Liner is another thing I need at all times. I use this for touch ups or when I feel the overwhelming need for MORE eyeliner!
I always, always have a MAC compact with me, so this is the one I am using now. Great for touch-ups (greasy afternoon foreheads) but also I love having a mirror.
I also have a teeny tiny MAC eyeliner stump in Industry, which was one of my favs long ago.
The Colourings lip brush is one I got at The Body Shop at least a decade ago, and it’s still in great shape.
Various bobby pins and clips are essential for annoying fly-away bangs.
And again, I need the MAC Prep & Prime for Lip at all times now. Addicted!
SO, tell me, what is in your makeup bag?
