Whats In My Beauty Bag?

I'm BACKKKK! I received a couple messages from you guys asking about what makeup products I am currently using. Here is a quick run down of What's in My Beauty Bag. Oh and MAJOR bonus included! My Top 15 Eye Shadows from all four of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. You're welcome.
1. Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Primer (Sephora $28) - Cancels out any redness and blurs imperfections. On no makeup days I feel comfortable in public with moisturizer and a dab of this green perfecter.

2. Mac Studio Sculpt NW25 (Dillards $31) - Very hydrating with medium-full coverage. Beware! You must set this with a powder or it will settle into fine lines.

3. Anastasia Brow Wiz in Soft Brown (Ulta $18) - Ultra fine tip brow pencil with a spooley brush on the other end. This pencil is all you'll need for natural to defined brows. Comes in a wide range of colors. Soft Brown is an exact match for my brows.

4. MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Medium (Dillards $30) - I press this finely milled powder into my skin with a huge powder brush to set my foundation for all day wear. Do not sweep on your setting powder! You'll just smudge around your foundation. You'll also find that by pressing the powder in, you won't have to touch up as often.

5. Z Palette Dome (Amazon $25) LOVE LOVE LOVE! This is great to have a wide variety in one little palette. Offers you endless looks so you're never limited.
6. Benefit Hoola Bronzer (Sephora $28) - Great for contouring. I use it under my cheekbones for definition and along the sides of my nose to slim. Highly pigmented so be careful and knock off excess powder from your brush before applying. That is a difference between Queen and Drag Queen.

7. Mac Blush in Springsheen (Dillards $17) - Similar to Nars Orgasm this blush has a golden sheen to its pinky coral tone. No flakes of glitter and has a better color pay off than Orgasm.

8. MAC Blush in Melba (Dillards $17) - Matte, dusty rose shade which is perfect for winter months to add definition without wearing too much color, especially if you're out in the cold weather.

9. Benefit Blush in Rockateur (Sephora $28) -Baby doll pink cheeks with the finest golden sheen. NO GLITTER! Even smells fancy. This has been my favorite rose gold blush but I picked up a new blush last night that has favorite potential. Check out my Instagram for the details.
10. MAC Paint Pot in Painterly (Dillards $20) - Great eyeshadow primer that will last you FOR-EV-ER. I even wear it alone when I am on a minimal "dont-want-to-scare-children" makeup day. Cancels out discoloration and brightens your eyes.
11. Stila Kitten Eye Shadow as Highlighter (Ulta $18) - Gorgeous. Like I said before, you NEED this eyeshadow. You'll thank me. Another plus to the highly pigmented pink champagne shadow is the packaging is perfect to depot immediately for Z palettes. 


12. Urban Decay Naked Eye Shadow Variety (Sephora) - My top 15 go to shades of the 4 Naked palettes. DO NOT JUDGE ME. Makeup addiction is a real problem that I struggle with everyday.
13. Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero (Sephora $18) - Great for tight lining and for your water line. No need to set with a powder. This liner will last all day. I'm about on my 5th pencil.

14. Rimmel Eyeliner in Nude (Walgreens $5) - Another minimal makeup favorite. Throw this on your water line to instantly make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. Great for smudging with eyeshadow for those coveted smokey eye looks.

15. Loreal Waterproof Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black (Walgreens $8) - Waterproof may be hard to take off but the hold it gives my lashes is like no other. You cannot go wrong with this holy grail product.

This post is so jam packed with products that  I'll be including a follow up post on my essential makeup brushes and extras. So be looking for that in the next few posts.Subscribe and Share!
