Part 2 of what's in my bag! Part 1 can be found here
I'm going to be honest, I do not re apply make up like ...ever. During the work day I just blot once and powder once, and apply lip balm non stop because I hate chapped lips but other than that, nada.
I try not to carry too much make up or reapply it in public, especially at work. I don't want to be known as that woman who is always re touching, I usually blot frantically UNDER my cubicle during lunch, when no one is looking
Many of the items in my main make up bag are utilized after work on Friday nights, when a lil bit of pepping up is needed before heading out for the weekend!
Dior Lip Glow: Been looving this lately. It's the perfect watery pink color, I do find the more I re apply the more fuscia it turns, granted a wearable fusica, but at 10:45 AM on a Wednesday at work is not Fuiscia hour, so I need to control myself from re applying this non stop
(not easy! bc I love it, SPF to boot!)
Rimmel Pencil Liner: This is not that special. I just carry around a retractable pencil liner ( no sharpening) to fill in my lower waterline when I look dead, it makes a huge difference!
More of a Friday thing, I don't wear too much liner in the office
Ralph Lauren Romance: Always nice to give yourself a little scent that is not over powering before meeting someone! Roller balls are great for that. You are able to try many perfumes without the commitment of a huge bottle
Mirror: Forever 21, I've had this for years! Best $3 dollar investment ever
Dior Sculpting Concealer: I tend to rub my eyes a lot ( a habit I am working on) so I usually rub off my concealer and this is quick and easy! I like doe foots because you can just sweep it on. This also can help with minor spots if you are in a bind
Dior Inimitable Intense Mascara: Mascara of the moment and loving it
NARS Dolce Vita Lip gloss: I love putting this on Friday nights before dinner. Darker than a normal everyday color, but not over powering like a red. 6pm in the summer is still bright out, so you don't need to be Queen of the Night with the lipsticks
This is effortless and a beautifully pigmented gloss
MAC Taupographic Shade stick: I like having an eye shadow where I don't need to carry around brushes. Just apply this on your finger, and blend it out, easy!
Clarins Lip Perfector in 01: Gloss I have yet to use, but will be using over my Dior Lip Glow once I am out of my current lip balm as a topper, gorgeous light pink, moisturizing gloss
Tide Stick Pen: If you don't have this, GET IT! Nothing is worse than wearing white ( oh yes, it WILL be white) before a meeting, and droplets of coffee before a presentation! One of those, today can't get any worse, but at least this helped me survive
Many people I know don't seem to use this correctly. You have press down on the spot, and the pen will retract and release the liquid soap, no water needed!
MAC Fix + To go! Love this to re freshen the face, again once work is over, and if you re powder and were a bit over zealous
NARS O Illuminator: I need a highlighter in my bag, for sure! it wakes up the face!! Another Friday night secret, are you seeing a pattern with me and the reapplications?
Rose Bud Salve: Sheer and pink, it does not last long, but I love the tin, and the rose scent.
Sephora Electro Liner in Copper
Somehow this was hiding in my bag during the initial pictures! This is perfect for the lower lash line for me! I don't wear black on the waterline during work, I think it looks a bit harsh, but THIS, this is perfect. I apply this and it just adds a bit of definition so I look like I actually posses lower lashes, and since the color is not strong, even if it smudges or fades, it's not a big deal, it just blends seamlessly
Love this! One of my co workers swears by the Khaki colored Electro liner and it looks AMAZING on her, I must get that next!
I carry two make up bags, but one is teeny tiny. I use this mainly to separate out my oily skinned needs, and on the weekends I add in a lip gloss, and this is all I carry around
As minimal as I get
Bag: Japanese Magazine Free Bee Pouch, MAC Ample Pink Plush glass, Maybelline Dream Matte Powder, Boscia Blotting Linens (HG), Eco Tools mini kabuki
