Beauty Moment: What’s In My Makeup Bag

This is a new one for me, but as a state titleholder in the Beauty world, it’s about time I get sharing what’s going on in my makeup bag. I always love seeing these posts on Youtube and in the Blog-sphere and I got a whole new kit that I’ve been loving so I figured now is the perfect time to share my first Makeup Bag spill.

This cute bag I probably got from Ipsy and has been holding some of my new additions.

PRIMER: I kind of consider primer as part of my skincare prep routine, but it’s in my makeup bag so here we go! I always jump between primers but right now, my go-to is Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth & Blur.

 

CONCEALER: When I start slipping on my self-care, my skin is the FIRST thing to tell everyone how stressed out I am! Because of that, I’ve been stockpiling an arsenal of concealer to keep my skin issues on the low. It Cosmetics has the perfect shade to blend with my skin tone in their Bye Bye Under Eye full coverage anti-aging waterproof concealer in deep, so I use that to fill out any flaws that are really bugging me. Then, I use a mixture of Smashbox second-skin concealer in with it to highlight under my eyes and my jaw area. Then if I’m feeling like I need an extra pop, I use YSL Beauty’s Touche Eclat Radiant Touch on top and along my forehead, chin and down my nose.

EYELINER: I can never finish a look without some kind of eyeliner and I like it thick, black and winged to the heavens. I got 2 really amazing IT Cosmetics kits and this Superhero liner has been in my go-to kit since! I’ve been scared of liquid eyeliner because it makes me feel like I can’t make a mistake or else I’ve ruined EVERYTHING but I haven’t had a single problem applying this it feels just like a pencil in my hand and is so easy to maneuver

MASCARA: I go through mascara SO quickly, and this is one I keep coming back to! Superhero Mascara from IT Cosmetics is such a beautiful addition to my makeup look every single time. It lengthens my lashes and gives me a sturdy foundation if I chose to apply extra lashes and helps make my eyes pop in a way that I really love.

BROWS: My natural eyebrows are such a challenge! They are thick, but short and grow all kinds of uneven. I have been using the IT Cosmetics Brow Power pencil and it makes it SO easy for me to fill in and darken what I’m working with!

BLUSH: I love a good flush of color on my cheeks! I’ve been using this one forever, Milani Powder Blush in Tea Rose. I don’t use blush daily, only when I know I’m going to be filming something or I want to give a more youthful look. I love how pink this one is.

FOUNDATION: I love switching up what foundation I use, and what type whether it’s liquid, cream, stick or powder. Right now I’m using the Celebration foundation from IT Cosmetics. This is a powder foundation that has buildable coverage without turning cakey, it’s anti-aging and hydrating all in one!

HIGHLIGHT: Lately, I’ve been feeling a more natural glow and the Highlighter in my Hello Cheekbones duo gives me exactly that. It is a kind of champaign color that feels SO warm and inviting on my cheekbones. This Duo comes with a matte bronzer.

SHADOW PALLETE: This totally depends on what vibe I’m trying to give today! I made a TikTok using my Superhero eyeshadow palette from IT Cosmetics and I really love the colors and the looks I can create with it. I usually use some of my Smashbox + The Hoodwitch Cover Shot: Crystalized Eye Palled and Always on Liquid Eye Shadow from that line in Rich Craft for that sparkle I love too!

LIPS: I have been loving the matte lip look for a minute, and Kylie Cosmetics makes such a great lip kit. Right now, I’m attached to Mary Jo K Matte Liquid Lipstick and Lipliner team. It gives me a really bright red that helps me pull my look together.

I love adding new things to my makeup bag and testing out new products! Do you have a new favorite in your bag? Let me know all about it down in the comments or on Twitter!
