Welcome to my monthly makeup bag!
While other bloggers have monthly makeup drawers, my apartment is way too small for that. Most mornings, I end up doing my makeup in the mirror of my bathroom sink. Because my husband wakes up later than I do, I have to do my makeup away from where my actual collection is stored on my dresser (unless I want to do my makeup in the dark!). Therefore: the makeup bag. It’s easy enough to keep in my bathroom and grab what I need. Every month, I’ll be changing up the products I use to keep things fresh and interesting. Usually, I throw in products I’m currently loving, products I want to try, or products I haven’t used in a while.
Interested? Take a look at January’s bag:
Primer – Becca Backlight Priming Face Filter
Foundation – Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation (I don’t believe this is actually being made anymore. The lastest version of this foundation is linked instead!)
Concealer – Milani Retouch + Erase Light-Lifting Concealer
Color Corrector – Bobbi Brown Under Eye Corrector
Powders – For setting underneath my eyes, I’ll be using the Maybelline Fit Me Set + Smooth Pressed Powder, and for setting my entire face (if I feel I need it) I’ll be using the NYX Set It & Don’t Fret It Matte Finishing Powder.
Bronzer – Bare Minerals Invisible Bronze Bronzer in Fair to Light
Blush – Kevin Aucoin Pure Powder Glow Blush in Helena (hmm, this exact shade seems to be not sold anywhere…)
Highlight – Fiona Stiles Light Illusion Prism Palette
Eyeshadow – I’ll be mainly using the Too Faced Natural Mattes Eyeshadow Palette (mine is in the older packaging) and the Cailyn Cosmetics O! 6 Eyeshadow Palette (I can’t find a link to this anywhere!)
Mascara – L’Oreal Lash Paraside Mascara
Lip Products – Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Blush, Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glace, Wet N’ Wild MegaLast Catsuit Liquid Lipstick in Rebel Rose, Bare Minerals Buttercream Lipgloss in Fly, Wet N’ Wild Megalast Lip Color in Bare it All, and Cailyn Cosmetics Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple
