What's In My Makeup Bag? (Fav. Products)


So above is my new makeup bag that I got a few weeks ago. This purchase was long overdue and the old makeup bag I was using needed to go! I decided to get a makeup bag from MAC because I've always admired them in the store and online, they look so sheik! The makeup bag I decided to purchase is part of the "Signature" collection, in the Small rectangle size. There are three sizes to choose from, mini, small and medium. I opted for the small since it was a perfect size to put in my purse and carry it around on a daily basis. The great thing about this bag is that the material is stain resistant. Powder can be wiped right off, which is great because I know many times this has happened to me. Inside my makeup bag:

Top left to bottom:
Loreal Intense Liquid Liner
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (Light Medium)
Mac Eye Kohl in Feline
Mac Mineralize Skinfish in Soft & Gentle
Mac Lipglass in Morning Glory
Nars Blush in Angelika
Mac Creme Color Base in Pearl
L'oreal True Match Powder (W1)

More detail on some of my favorites:

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

Love this powder! I've reviewed this before on my blog. It's such a great natural powder that gives a great finish after applying. This really helps set my foundation (Revlon Color Stay).

Mac Creme Color Base In Pearl

This is one of my favorites! I use this as a highlight to give to a brighter look to my cheek bones. This is great toward the end of the work day when my makeup has kind of faded. This definately brightens up my makeup when I am looking tired.

Mac Eye Kohl in Feline

This eyeliner is great because it is really black. I use this on my waterline, and carry this with me to touch it up throughout the day. My only criticism of this is that it does not last all day. I don't know if it because my eyes tend to water at times, but I do have to reapply if I want it to stay on. Anyone have any suggestions on longer lasting eyeliners?

Nars Blush in Angelika

Love, love this blush!~It's a perfect medium pink color with shimmer. It gives a great glow, and really brightens. Love this as well because it is very pigmented and it will last all day. I usually apply this at around 6 am, and it will last until I get home at the end of the day.

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle

One of my favorite highlights!~This is a great highlight that creates a really pretty bronzy sheen. I apply this after Mac's Creme Color Base in Shell and gives a great dewy look.

Loreal Intense Liquid Eye Liner

Love this for lining my upper lash line. It's a great liquid liner that is very easy to apply, so if you are just starting out with liquid liner, this one is great to learn with!~I carry this with me incase I need to reapply toward the end of the day. It is very long lasting and I really don't need to reapply, only if I am going out after work will I reline my eyes for a more polished look.

So that is what's inside my makeup bag. What are some essentials that you carry with in your makeup bag? Is there any great products that you carry that I need to try?
