What’s In My Make-Up Bag? (my current make-up rotation)

Hey guys! I thought it would be fun to share with you all the goodies I am currently using pretty much every single day. I try to keep my make-up collection to a minimum (which, as you know, is extremely difficult). I just hate clutter and really don’t like to keep things around that I know I will never use. I do have a stash of other make-up in my closet, but these current favorites are kept in a separate “daily use” make-up bag to save time when I am getting ready in the mornings. 

Make Up For Ever – Mat Velvet + (Porcelain)
This is my holy grail foundation. I have very uneven skin tone and I am prone to break outs. I also have some acne scarring that I absolutely hate. I have found that this really evens everything out and leaves me with a very fresh looking face. Best way to apply: damp Beauty Blender. Hands down.

Make Up For Ever – Lift Concealer
I mostly use this under my eyes, which tends to be a problem area for me. I have under eye bags that seem to always linger no matter how much sleep I get. I am convinced it is hereditary (thanks, mom!). I won’t say this is a miracle product, but it does brighten and conceal the dark circles. Sadly, the puffiness remains, and I have yet to find anything that will take it away. If you guys know something I don’t, please fill me in!!


Let me start by saying I am not a lipstick person. At all. I’ve just never liked it and I’m not really sure why. It could be that I never found the right shade that works for my skin tone…it could be that I don’t like the shape of my lips so I avoid anything that draws attention to them…it could be that most lipsticks taste awful and feel gross on my lips. However, I have finally found this lipstick and I have been wearing it every day since I received it in my last Glossy Box.

It is super long wearing, it doesn’t feel weird on my lips, and it even smells and tastes good. The color is absolutely perfect for me too. If I had just seen this color online or in a store, I probably wouldn’t have even tried it because it doesn’t look like a color that would suit me (it almost has a purplish tint). After trying it out, I realized that it is possible for me to love lipstick! It gives me just enough color without looking too “done” (if that makes sense). I just can’t say enough good things about it, and I am curious to try the rest of the Doucce line.

Other favorites in my bag:
Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Too Faced – Sun Bunny Bronzer
Benefit – They’re Real! Mascara
NYX – Micro Brow Pencil (Taupe)
Marc Jacobs – Highliner Gel Eye Crayon (Black)
Estee Lauder – Blush (Soulful Spice, Brazen Bronze, Lovers Blush)
Bare Minerals  – Prime Time Foundation Primer
Ulta – Eye Shadow Quad (Bone, Calla Lilly, Plum Smoke, Truffle)
Beauty Blender
Bare Minerals brushes – Feather Light, Handy Buki, Precision Eyeliner, and Eye Shaper

So…what’s in YOUR make-up bag right now? Any favorites that you want to scream about from a mountain top?? (maybe don’t do that….people that aren’t like us just wouldn’t understand). But you are definitely free to post about them in the comments!

Hope your Monday was pleasantly tolerable!
