what’s in my

Make-up Bag?

Inspired by Stara’s Post

So here is the make-up I actually use on a semi regular basis, I have a lot more make-up that I use when I do other people’s faces for weddings and special occasions.

In the box: Bare Escentuals Fairly Light and Mineral veil.

Origins blush (the big peachy disc) and Origins eyeshadow (the pinky disc) that I combine together and use as my blush. These are ANCIENT. Obviously I don’t throw blush out when I am told to, I also use them every day.

Almay eyeshadow for green eyes. I love this stuff. Seriously.

Origins Blondie eyeshadow. It’s a nice sparkly pale yellow color, great for under brow highlight.

Rimmel Kohl black eyeliner pencil

Covergirl brown/black mascara. I’m not sold on this stuff. I can feel it all day on my lashes and I don’t like that.

Origins Browfix. Clear brow gel, to keep my Brooke Shield’s style brows in check.

Two shades of pencil concealer from The Body Shop. I still use a brush to put it on but I like the option of having it in a stick and tossing it in my purse if I need it.

Random shell colored and brown shadow. Origins charcoal eyeshadow disc (again, ancient).

Random lip liner.

Blush brush and mineral veil brush. The rest of my brushes are in a container on a shelf above this box.

Two Dior Silk Shadow Palettes and an Origins brown shadow. The Dior shadows are ancient but as you can see I am IN LOVE with that one color and can’t find anything like it anywhere else so I will not part with it.

Kiehl’s lotion, Olay regenerist (I also use the eye version), Origins Well Off make-up remover, Caladryl. I use the Caladryl to stem breakouts, my face can get really dry so anything else dries it out too much but that helps with the break outs without drying me out too much.

This stuff is in my purse. Two types of Burt’s Bees. Tinted Origins lip balm. Boscia blotting papers for when my forehead gets shiny. Lipstick for when I want something darker than the lip balm. Lip gloss from Bath and Body works with a minty taste.

That’s pretty much it. On a regular basis I wear the BE, blush and burt’s bees. I’ll maybe add eyeliner and mascara if I am going out somewhere. I don’t wear a lot of make-up regularly but I do love it, I’m just not sure why I don’t do it anymore.
