What's in My Makeup Bag?

These products are currently the ones housed in my on-the-go makeup bag that I bring with me when I'm out and about. I try my best to bring as little product as possible to avoid adding extra weight to my purse. The current makeup bag I'm using was an impulse buy from Forever 21 while I was waiting in line. I couldn't resist how cute it was - clear bag, a lipstick print, gold zipper, and accented with a mint color.
Let's start with Hourglass's Ambient Lighting Powder in Dimlight. I absolutely love this as a finishing powder because it blurs imperfections and brings the best light to enhance your complexion. Throughout the day when I feel myself getting oily or when my foundation needs a little touch-up, I swipe this on my face and my look is instantly refreshed. The next face product, Benefit's Hoola Bronzer. I have no idea why it took me so long to finally jump on the Hoola bandwagon but I finally did a few weeks ago and I have no plans to turn back. This is the most beautiful colored bronzer I'd used thus far! I usually don't need a touch up but it's such a beauty I bring Hoola with me just in case.

Off to fragrance. I got Chloe's Love Story as a Sephora Beauty Insider gift back in February (click here to read more) and the smell is to die for! I love the small size of the bottle making it an easy fit inside of my makeup bag. Then we have my trusty ol' Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer. I go through bottles and bottles of these little bad boys. As any normal person, germs, bacteria, etc, really freak me out so I sanitize my hands all the time. My absolute favorite is the Hawaii edition (of course) that has a plumeria scent.
I like to have two lip colors on hand. First one, Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita One of my top five lipsticks without a doubt. Such a to-die-for color and the lasting power is mind blowing. The second color that is my go-to is MAC's Viva Glam III Lipstick. It's the perfect everyday dark color lipstick. It's usually combined with MAC's Lipliner in Burgundy so this little guy tags along as well. Since we're on the subject on lips, next we have Kiehl's Lip Balm. My mom gave this for me while I was home in Hawaii and it was love at first try. She was testing out new Kiehl products and kept me in mind during her purchase. Love you momma bear! Since I'm sort of rambling about my mom, she's to thank for introducing me to L'Occitane's Hand Cream. That little lady is a hand cream fanatic so it's a staple for me as well. L'Occitane is my all time fave brand when it comes to hand cream and honestly, if I had to choose just two things to come with me, it'd probably be this and sanitizer.

Now, onto the eyes. My eyebrow hair has a mind of it's own so I need to bring Anastasia Beverly Hills's Clear Eyebrow Gel with me for a mid-day touch up. It is my absolute favorite to keep the misbehaving brows in place. Next, Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner is seriously the best eyeliner you will ever use. It's lasting power is ridiculously amazing so I actually don't need to bring this since touch ups aren't necessary. However, it comes along just in case because you never know. I use this everyday and you can see that clearly by how beat up the eyeliner looks. And last out of the bunch, MAC's Pro Longwear Eyeliner in Black Ice. I use this solely for my waterline so it does need a touch up every now and then.

What are your must have products when you're out and about?


  1. You have so much lovely makeup. Your make up bag is so nice too-I will have to go to Forever 21 and see if I can find a similar one.


  2. Always interesting to see what women have in their make up bag!
