Since I have more make up than I will ever need, I like to switch out my make up bag every week. Normally I get bored and by the end of the week my basket is overflowing with extra stuff I try to sneak in. Note the photo below.
Normally during the week I like my make up routine is quick, simple, and light. Of course things change, some days I feel like wearing a smokey eye, other days I don't want to wear anything but mascara.
This is what my make up basket looks like at the beginning of the week. I try to make my decisions in the early morning as easy as possible.
Here is what I'm using for my base. I start off with the Hourglass Mineral Primer, I'm sad to say I'm not sure if this stuff is worth all the hype. It doesn't do much for oil control, so after I finish this up I'll be on the search for something new. The L'Oreal Nude Magic Liquid Powder foundation is so great for quick application. Takes little to no blending and dries to a nice semi matte finish. I can't say enough wonderful things about the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, other than it's the only concealer I own. I also really like the NYX finishing sprays, I like to use the Matte Finish Spray under foundation to keep my face matte for most of the day. Some days when I feel like I put too much powder on, I use the Dewy Finish Spray.
For blush and highlight I'm trying out the Be a Bombshell The One Stick in Sunset and I'm loving the Revlon Skinlights in Bare Light. The One Stick has been okay so far, I might review it later after I have given it a fair try.
I recently bit the bullet and finally picked up the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette, I have stared at it every time I take a stroll past the make up section. (I conveniently found a coupon as well...)
For eye shadow bases I like to use a primer and cream eye shadows. This week I broke out my Lorac Behind the Scenes eye primer. I got this with my Pro palette and it's really nice. I find it works better than UD Primer Potion for me. The cream eye shadows I brought out this week are Mac's Rubenesque Paint Pot and Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Beige (This color was limited edition.) I'm in love with the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in Taupe and Brown, honestly the best eye pencils I have ever used.
I'm also trying out the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Retro Glam Mascara this week. I received it in my Spring Vox Box and you should be seeing a review of that pop up late next week!
And finally my go to brow product is the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde.
I don't usually do a whole lot with lips for everyday... gloss is my best friend. This week I decided to throw Almay Liquid Lip Balm in Cantaloupe Cream, Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Sunset Peach and L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Aqua Lacquer Lip Stain in Rose On and On.
What's your make up bag look like at the end of the week?
