Whatcha got in the bag?

Friday I took part in the What's in Your Bag party hosted by Heather at Glitter and Gloss
and shared the contents of my purse on my other blog.
And last night I thought - why not share the contents of my makeup bag on here???
I know a lot of people are curious as to what a makeup artist carries around in their personal makeup bag so here it goes!!
Mesh set of 3 from Victoria's Secret years ago
I like it because I can take them apart and stash different things in each pouch for a complete set.

 Little Bag:
M.A.C Lustreglass in Sinnamon
Sour Apple blow pop
Colgate wisps
CO Bigelow Lemon &Pomegranate lip cream

Large Bag:
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzing Powder
Urban Decay Powder Brush
 M.A.C lip liners Chestnut and Spice
M.A.C eyeliner in Coffee
Sephora Mini Mascara
2 M.A.C Lustreglass Sinnamon & WonderStruck
2 M.A.C Lipsticks in Hyper & Icon
Colgate Wisps
Viktor & Rolf Flower Bomb Perfume roll-on
(Not pictured) Mini NARS Orgasm blush

Now you may be wondering - why does she have duplicates in each bag?
Well I sometimes take the little bag and throw it in a clutch if necessary.
I don't generally carry eye shadow as I will use the Orgasm in a pinch but for me it's all about playing up the shape of my eyes so if I need to 'vamp it up' a bit for evening I just layer on the eyeliner and add a few more coats of mascara.
On occasion I've also been known to keep false eyelashes just for fun but have yet to have reason to use them.

Obviously this is not all the makeup I use but just a small sample of what I will carry on a day to day basis for touch ups.
I do change it up often adding an eye shadow quad or different eyeliners as the mood strikes but these are my basics.

What do you keep in your makeup bag?


  1. Makeup bags excite me! I should share what's in mine, but there's so much in there that it's a bit shameful....
