What's in my makeup bag?

“Can I see what you have in your makeup bag?” is often a question asked by the nosey me when I see a makeup bag lying around by anyone of my girlfriends. 

There’s a lot that you can learn about one’s preferences and habits by taking a peek (or two) into one’s makeup bag. And by habits I mean those ehem! *coughs*uncleaned brushes*coughs*. Guilty as charged! p.s. I do clean mine regularly though. Just not as regularly as I should. Oops!

Today, you are about to learn on my makeup preferences and daily-go-tos. You’d noticed that most of my daily-go-to makeup consists of drugstore/ department store products. Let’s just say I love saving my high end products for special occasions. Not that drugstore products are less effective. It’s merely a matter of personal preference. 

I’ve been rocking this same look at work for the last six months or so because I have this habit of getting into a routine with the same range of products until I get tired of them, then I’ll switch it up here and there. But! My favourite must-have would definitely be the bright Fuchsia lipstick. I'll tell you why in abit. 

Without further ado, I shall reveal to you, my top secret ‘weapons’! 

Eucerine Dermopurifyer Hydrating Care
Murad Oil Control Mattifier

I can't stress enough on the importance of keeping your skin well hydrated and protected. With an oil free solution and SPF 30, the Eucerine moisturiser is all I need to do just that! And of course, to keep my makeup looking matt and fresh all day, I'll whip out the big guns, the Murad Oil Control Mattifier helps to keep those oil shine at bay!

Bourjois Happy Light ultra-covering concealer in shade 23 Beige Core
MUFE Duo Mat powder foundation in shade 209
Loreal True Match liquid foundation shade N7 Nude Amber

The best combination to a flawless dewy finish in just minutes or even seconds! Both the liquid and powder foundations are buildable. And on days that I don't feel like using the liquid foundation, I'll just pack on the powder foundation till it gives that flawless effect I'm looking for!

Bourjois waterproof eyeliner in shade 41 Black Party
The Face Shop Design My Eyebrow eyebrow pencil in shade 02 Dark Brown
MAC eyeshadow in Phloof!
Victoria’s Secret Lash Lust Mascara

My life saviour has got to be the eyebrow pencil, great for defining and filling in my brows. Trust me, nobody wants to be seen with sparse brows. And look more awake with Phloof! with one simple step by adding them to the inner corners of your eyes. Definitely comes in handy on days you've had sleepless nights!

MAC mineralise blusher in shade Subtle Breeze

A look is never complete without those perfect rosy cheeks.

Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in 07 Fuchsia Graffiti

With such a bold colour, it naturally allows me to embody a sense of great confidence, strength and empowerment at work! It acts as both a weapon and a shield to deter the undesirable. Great tip to take note of ladies!

And that’s all for now! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post as much as i did and do hit up the comment button down below if you’d like me to do a full review on the products. 

But before I end this post, let's observe a moment of silence to the passengers and crews of MH17. And not forgetting their family members, my thoughts and prayers goes out to them.

“Nothing you love is lost. Not really. Things, people–they always go away sooner or later. You can’t hold them anymore than you can hold moonlight. But if they’ve touched you, if they’re inside you, then they’re still yours. The only things you ever really have are the ones you hold inside your heart.” Bruce Coville
