Whats in your makeup bag?

Hi everyone! I thought it would be fun to share whats in my makeup bag Smiley Happy  Its my every day, carry with me almost everywhere bag.  Literally, its busting at the seams!  So... lets see your stash!!

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

My Vera Bradley makeup bag is an essential! In it is:


  • MUFE Mat Velvet + Foundation
  • Clinique Stay Matte Pressed Powder
  • Tarte Perfect Primer
  • Victoria's Secret Prime and Setting Spray
  • Beauty Blender
  • Too many different kind of mascaras
  • Mini Ed Hardy Perfume
  • EOS lip balm

I'm also looking for powders containing silica if anyone has suggestions. Smiley Happy

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

I don't carry a makeup bag, I just carry everything I need in random little bits and pieces here and there. Have mini-tweezers, a nail file, boscia blotting papers and band-aids in my wallet, keep Sephora express make-up removing wipes, hand cream (L'Occitane), a lip balm with spf, one of the mini sunscreens from the sun safety kit (currently the OH), and hand sanitizer (B&BW) in a Sephora ziplock in my purse. I might do my make-up before I go to work but then I'm pretty low maintenance Smiley Happy

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

I don't have a set makeup bag because I don't generally wear makeup to work (I'm doing an internship in a corporate-ish field and I have trouble "toning down" my makeup, so I figured I'd just skip it) but I never really have a set makeup bag anyway.  I usually bring whatever powder I'm wearing that day for touch ups, maybe a brush, and possibly some mascara.  So tame for a makeup junkie, I know!

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

@janinebt- Is the Dior skinflash radiance pen what you prime with ?

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

Oh boy...I actually brought my makeup bag to work today just because I'm going out tonight. Keep in mind that this is a more extreme version of what is usually in my bag on a daily basis.


  • KVD lock-it foundation
  • MUFE HD Concealer
  • MUFE Pro Finish Powder
  • DiorShow Lash Serum
  • DiorShow Blackout Mascara
  • Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil
  • Anastasia Brow Wiz
  • A tiny little baby sized They're Real Mascara
  • KVD Autograph eyeliner pencil
  • Dior Skinflash Radiance pen
  • Dior Addict Lipstick in Dior Kiss (such a pretty soft pink)
  • Tons of brushes!
  • Lady Gaga's Fame perfume (a roller ball)
  • Bobbi pins
  • Hand sanitizer

Phew lots of stuff. Usually I only carry about half of that.



Whimsically yours,

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

Oh I love love love seeing what people have in their makeup bags!  mine's sorta boring but I'll make a note to snap a photo when the light is good....


@Miabt what are those adorable little orange brushes?  they're so cute!

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

@drrragon - They're actually bare minerals brushes from a bronzer/highlighting set I received as a gift a few years back.  They contour & highlight perfectly!!


xo, Mia

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

This was today's makeup bag (minus the Aqualillies, which was sitting in my bag but I included it anyhow):



Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

After I saw your picture, I went straight to my pressed Guerlain powder and tossed it in my bag! Thanks for the idea Smiley Happy

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

It's a summer must-have!

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

Seeing all of these is so interesting!  It makes me think of things I'd never thought of (blotting paper for instance).  


For me I pretty much just carry whatever lipstick I have on + a compact mirror to use when I re-apply.  But that's mostly because I am doing work from home this summer.  Once the school year starts again and I'm back in the classroom(s)(as an aide I travel all over the school with my students) I'll also carry mascara, eye makeup remover pads in case my mascara abandons me or I have some other eye makeup mishap, hand sanitizer, hand lotion and blotting paper.

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?


Great thread, Miabt! It made me re-evaluate what I may be missing, ie touch up powder and hand cream. Also, packing lightly is clearly not my forte Smiley Happy

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

I LOVE your MUFE makeup bag!  So adorable & you can see everything inside your bag!  


xo, Mia

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

I don't carry a makeup bag with me, but these things are lurking in my purse:


Boscia Green Tea blotting papers

Crabtree and Evelyn lavender soap leaves

Sephora round mirror

Popup brush (currently with Disney princesses on it -- best souvenir I've ever bought!)


rollerball of some sort (currently Daisy Oh So Fresh, I think)

too many lip products (see my when do you apply post; I think right now I have mini Fresh Rose, mini Dior Addict Extreme Lucky, Clinique Chubby Stick Watermelon?, some other tinted lip balm, Korres lipstick, and Covergirl lip balm/tint (since I took it out of my other purse yesterday instead of the Tarte Lipsurgence I meant to grab)

Clarins UV Plus HP sunscreen deluxe sample

Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer

I need to stash a little bag somewhere that has face cleanser, moisturizer with SPF, maybe something more in case I go swimming.  I really wanted it last week and didn't have my big purse with more stuff in it with me, either, just the workout bag

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

I have so much makeup but i hardly carry any. hahah. I'm one of those people that like to apply in the morning and not bother with touchups the rest of the day.

For the beauty items-

-mufe 0 black mini eye liner
- mini skindinavia spray (though i prefer the ud so will switch out, again i hardly use this)

- NYX beige lipgloss (switch out weekly)

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

Trying to edit this post to add my photo, and it is NOT letting me upload.  Am I doing something wrong?

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

@nebel, I usually will upload an image to an image hosting website then past the link under 'link a picture'

Whimsically yours,

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

I understand, but I have uploaded directly from my computer before, and I don't really feel like going through extra steps for something that should be so simple.  It is once again an issue with BT not functioning properly and it is kinda frustrating Smiley Sad


ETA: There must be some sort of server issue. I am gettin continuous error messages whenever I try to click on the "advice" tab. Anyone else having this problem?

Re: Whats in your makeup bag?

In my purse I carry:


Shiseido Pressed Powder

Bobbi Brown Concealer

DiorShow Mini

2 Chanel Coco Shine ls (Liberte and Bel-Ami)
