What's Inside My Daily Makeup Bag3:29:00 AM
So if you remember my post a few weeks back about what's inside my travel toiletries bag for a 2 days trip, I mentioned that I bring along three travel makeup bags with me: one for toiletries, one for eye makeup & longer tools (such as make up brushes, etc), and the other one is my daily makeup bag which I always bring in my handbag everywhere I go.
Here's my three makeup bags for the trip:
The pink Victoria's Secret bag is for Toiletries, the turquoise-colored Estee Lauder bag is for Eye makeup / brushes, and I use the gold Marc Jacobs Daisy bag for my Daily makeup bag.
I have several other mini makeup bags, I like to use them alternately so that I can wash the other. The Victoria's Secret bag is the biggest bag among my makeup bags collection so I often use it to bring toiletries / skincare bottles. The Marc Jacobs one is the smallest between the three bags above. Here's the comparison between the smallest and the largest bag:
The cosmetic bag that I always tucked inside my bag is consisted of make up tools for touch-ups purposes. I bring that bag everyday and everywhere with me, and what's inside are always different because I changed most of them pretty frequently, depending on the day's makeup and/or occasion. So this post is about what's inside the make up bag that I bring along with me during my last Ied trip to Bandung.
First, let me introduce you to my cosmetic bag ;p
Her name is Daisy, LOL.
No, not really... I don't named my bags like that ;p
So anyway, this bag has a zippered compartment inside and an opening at the front (which I used to store my mini perfume and hand lotion so that I can easily grab them whenever I need them). And here is all the things inside the make up bag that I bring along for the 2 days trip:
As I told you above, the content of my daily makeup bag changes daily, depending on my makeup that day or on the occasions that I'll be having that day. And these are what I packed for my 2 days trip to Bandung in celebration of Eid day where I would have many family gatherings, visiting families from one house to another.
Everything inside this bag are for touch up purposes, so I only bring face powder (to powder my nose and other oilier area ;p), lip balm (important! Can't leave without them!), blush-ons to make my face seems fresh (despite the tiredness of the many activities), and some various lip colors (I like to have options ;p), as well as a compact mirror, a hand cream (i can't stand a dry hands!) and a perfume (another important item incase you get sweaty).
The face powder:
Revlon PhotoReady Two Way Powder Foundation SPF19 in Natural Beige
The lip balm:
Aromatic Health Peppermint Lip Balm
I brought two Blush-Ons so I can have options...
Revlon Naturally Glamorous Blush On in #05 Red Apple
(a very sheer pinkish red blush for a sheer burst of color on the cheek)
The Body Shop Cheek Colour in #2
(a sheer pink tone for a fresh looking face, great for mornings when you lacked sleep ;p)
The Lip Colors:
I simply can not leave home without lipstick, it's one of my most important make up item ;p
As you can see, I brought along some lip color options for this trip. The left one is the Aromatic Health lip balm, and the rest are lip colors. I brought along three shades of lip colors for this particular trip...
The Neutral / Brown-ish shade:
Caring Colors Moisturize Rich Lip Color in #16 Brown Sugar
This may look like a deep brick red color on the photo above but it's actually more like a sheer reddish brown in real life, and it matches my natural lip color (I have a dark lip) so it goes on very neutral looking on my lips, perfect for everyday use or touch ups. This one has a built-in moisture balm in the middle so it doubles up as a lip moisturizer too.
The Red shades:
Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in #01 Red
(lip tint can stay on your lips a lot longer and it can also gives you more natural look so bringing a lip tint is a must for me ;p)
Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense in #42
(a true red lipstick, perfect for special occasions ;p)
The Pink shades:
Givenchy Gloss Balm in #5 (a fuchsia color with sheer sparkles)
Calvin Klein Glistening Lip Gloss in Taffy ( a sheer pale pink shade)
I also bring a compact mirror inside the bag:
I got this one from Givenchy, and it has a double sided mirror on the front and back, one being a close-up mirror. So it is practically a good mirror for on-the-go activities.
As I told you before, the cosmetic bag also has a front opening in which I put on my mini perfume and hand lotion:
Givenchy Play perfume
L'Occitane Hand Cream in Cherry Blossom
That's all in my make up bag, what's inside yours? What is the one makeup thing that you cannot leave home without?
