What's in my makeup bag
One of my favorite blushes to use is the Tarte Amazonian Clay in Rosy Nude. Not only does it give you a natural look, it also stays on all day! It comes in about fourteen different shades, making it possible for anyone to match it with their complexion. My favorite part: there's no parabens or sulfates :)
Mascara is one of those items that us girls really love or really hate! I pretty much hated all mascara until I tried Benefit Cosmetics: They're Real Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara. It is hands down one of the best mascaras that I have ever tried. My lashes don't clump and they look longer and fuller. I recently ran out of my Benefit mascara and received The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes Mascara from my Birchbox. I really enjoy using this as well. I would say it's a close second to my Benefit. For those who don't like to spend much on makeup, the Beauty Crop costs a little bit less than the Benefit mascara.
I normally just wear chapstick or a nude gloss most days, but the few days that I feel like adding a pop of color, I like to wear Pop Beauty Matte Velvet Lipstix in Cozy Crimson. It glides on effortlessly and the matte finish makes it stay in place without bleeding outside the lines. If your lips get a little dry, you can put some chapstick or gloss over it and...voila! I recently received the Be Legendary Liquid Lip by Smashbox and really like that as well. This has more of a shine unlike the Pop Beauty. You can't go wrong with either, in my opinion.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I carry in my makeup bag. I would love to hear which item you can't go anywhere without!
