What’s In My Makeup Bag // May 2015

What's In My Makeup Bag |

It’s been a hot minute since I last posted something like this and I thought I’d show the updated contents of my makeup bag!

What's In My Makeup Bag |

My makeup bag is one of those things I can’t leave the house without because I don’t always end up making my way home at the end of the day LOL. While I’m okay to go barefaced, I’d really rather look more put together at work so I keep some basics on me.

What's In My Makeup Bag |

1 – Beauty Finds Girl, You Shine. I keep this mattifying cream on me (using it as base/primer) at all times just in case I sleep over at someone’s and I have work the next day.

2 – Multicheek Blush in Beige (Daiso). My favorite cheap blush. I stocked up on this a while back and I’m down to my last pan.

3, 4 & 5 – L’Oreal Blaze of Red, Mac Honey Love and Sin. Blaze of Red is a repurchase and my current go-to red. Dark colors suit my dark hair better and I just use Honey Love to tone down Sin a bit.

6 – Avon Ideal Oil Control Pressed Powder. I only carry this for its mirror.

7 & 8 – Marionnaud Angled Blush Brush, tweezers.

9 & 10 – Nature Republic Eyebrow Pencil and Waterproof Eyeliner (brown). Current favorites. I just wish the brow pencil lasted longer!

11 – Ellefar Hanataka Powder. Cheap highlighter from Daiso.

12 – Gatsby Powdered Oil Paper.

13 – Heavy Rotation Eyebrow Mascara.

14 – Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm. Good for moisturizing lips and cuticles. I also apply this on small cuts.

15 & 16 – Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara and Maybelline Rocket Volum Express. I barely wear mascara because it’s irritating as hell so I don’t even know why I keep two in my bag! Some people call the Heroine Make one their holy grail mascara and I can see why, but I don’t like it that much because it’s super hard to take off. I have to really saturate my lashes/eyes with virgin coconut oil just to remove it.

It’s Friday’s 10 Happy Things tomorrow! Would love it if you guys join this week. :)

How often do you update the contents of your kikay kit? :)

    I’m glad I don’t feel the need to carry a makeup bag here in Whitehorse because getting to and from work only takes me 10 minutes. HAHA. So lucky. Manila life is all about impromptu sleepovers! I love it!

    I rarely update my makeup kit but I sometimes update my makeup look. Sometimes laziness gets in the way though. lol.

      I want to be more experimental with makeup!

    It is true that mascara can be annoying. I have mine in Maybelline and it’s so hard to take off! Also, I love L’Oreal’s Blaze of Red too!
