Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Hahaha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who carries around a bunch of lip products in their make up bag! When I have to search for ONE shade in my purse I end up digging out 4 shades before finding the one I need. Friends are always like O_O "How do you keep ALL THAT in there?!?!?"

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Exactly. But when it comes to my lipsticks I always find a way to manage to put as many as I need!Smiley Happy

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

I know!!!! I love mixing colors! And then layering it over lip balm, then topping it off with's a whole regimen on its own!

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

My staple bag includes:


-Foundation primer (usually changes up)

-Foundation or tinted moisturizer

-Cargo Blu Ray powder or Smashbox HALO powder

-Concealer (either liquid or potted cream)

-Garnier Roller Ball (one with the brightening tint)

-Cargo Water Resistant bronzer

-TF Sweethearts blush

-UD PP in Sin

I'll add in colored liners or shadows depending on what I'm packing/taking my make up bag for and what clothes I'll have with me. But those are the basics.

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Ok it took a while but I finally got some time to snap photos of my emergency makeup kit.  It took me a while to get it right (plus I'm obsessed with miniaturization) and it's not exactly the same as an everyday makeup bag.  It's for something that'll do in a pinch, but tiny enough that I can just throw it into my work bag and have with me at all times.


This is the case (I got it from Trish McEvoy's Voyager set) which is about 2.5" x 3.5"

Inside the case you can see a Stila single pan compact, a small pill box from Rite Aid, mini brushes, and a Clinique key chain.


Stila Eye Shadow Trio in Ethereal (still my favorite go-to after all these years).  In the pill box, I filled 3 empty pans from Yaby with Benefit Booing concealer, Urban Decay afterglow cheek tint, and a Clinique cream blush.  I stuck the pans to the lid of the box with rubber cement.


Mini Clinique High Impact Mascara, mini Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner, mini brushes, and aha!  the Clinique keychain is actually a mirror!





Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Looks like someone needs a new eye shadow soon!!!! Smiley Happy *checks into Enablers R' Us for today*

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

LOL yeah, luckily I have a backup of that Ethereal, but maybe during the 20% sale I'll stock up some more.... Smiley Very Happy

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Do it...*Enabling powers, ACTIVATE!* Smiley Tongue

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Thanks for sharing everyone! I love looking at everyone's stuff! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Today I bought the compact mirror that Fabz has in her picture Smiley Very Happy

Mine's white, and its awesome!

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Super cute little kit. 

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

I don't have a makeup bag in my purse....I just keep a handful of drugstore lipsticks and lipbalms in one of the side pockets and a compact mirror. The only makeup I touch up is lipstick, so I don't see the point in lugging things around for no reason. But I do bring a makeup bag when I'm traveling, and like that I can throw this new little bag in my purse no problem and without it taking up too much room (and yet...can hold TONS of stuff).

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Fabz---The next time youre at Walmart, try the Flower Beauty About Face Foundation---I haven't been able to put it down since I got it, sooo good! And I think its $13.99. I'm obsessed with this line right now, flower beauty and rimmel London are my new drugstore obsessions!

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

Would you recommend it for dry skin? I have been interested to try this line but last time I went by they had like ONE blush available. Blah. I will try this foundation though if you like it. What about the blushes? Any good?

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

I would! I have dry skin right now. I would say this is a good solid drugstore dupe for the KVD lock it tattoo foundation. It comes in a glass pump bottle, the formula is like a thick/rich cream, its not liquidy at all, and it has a good medium + coverage. I set it with powder and it looks flawless all day. I love it so much! And they have soooo many shades! I took the bottle and matched it to the inside of my arm and I matched myself perfectly. The colors do run a little light, I'm fair right now and usually use the lightest shade of foundation or second lightest shade in any range, and in this range I'm LF3, the 3rd lightest shade. They have a color match for everyone!


I only have the foundation and the lipstick that comes in the white packaging, I don't have anything else but I cant wait to try her TM/BB cream, cream blush and cream shadow!

Re: Whats in your everyday makeup bag?

SOLD.  When I head over there I will pick some up. I have such a hard time finding foundation for dry skin at the drugstore. OR they don't even label which type of skin it's for and I take a skin and end up looking a pizza yo :Smiley Very Happy
