What's in my makeup bag header

Hello people of the internet! I loved doing the What's In My Bag post last week so I decided to do a makeup version! Everything in this post is my absolute go-to at the moment. The weather has been super weird again. It's either humid and too warm or chilly and raining. I love having one set of go-to tools everyday. Makes my life so much easier!

Let's start with the base!
  • Primer: I use Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. It smooths out everything with out making my face feel oily or caked in the stuff. I think it really works as far as filling in my pores too!
  • Concealer: W7 Hide 'N' Seek concealer is amazing! It's an exact dupe for the (much pricier) IsaDora concealer wheel. It covers more than enough with out being too heavy as well.
  • Foundation: NYC All Day Long is perfect for the summer. It's long lasting, high coverage, goes on smoothly, and it also doesn't break the bank!
  • Blush: Catrice Defining Blush in Apropos Apricot might be one of the best blushes I've ever used. Sadly, this color isn't available anymore. I love it's peachy tones with a little bit of a golden highlight. I'll be so sad when I finally use it up.
  • Highlighter: You might have seen this Makeup Revolution Baked Highlighter before in my haul post. It still amazes me everyday. It's so pretty, I wish I could just cover my whole face in it and call it a day!

Moving on to eyes and brows!
  • Brows: I use a mixture of things. First, I line and comb them with the Wet'n'Wild Icon Brow pencil. I then fill them in with a small liner brush and Ulta eyeshadow in Brownie.
  • Eyeliner: So, I'm slowly realizing that all of this section is going to be a bit of a mix! Mainly I use one of Penney's beauty brand felt tip eyeliners. If I'm not doing winged eyeliner (let's be honest though, when am I not?) I use this Model Co Kohl eyeliner. 
  • Eyeshadow: Mainly I use my (poor, broken) Urban Decay Naked On The Run palette. I mainly use the two matte shades. I'm pretty sure you've seen me raving on about this Pacifica palette on various social medias too! I also LOVE to use the bronzer from the Naked On The Run palette to blend out my eyeshadow. 
  • Mascara: Ever since I purchased the Naked On The Run palette the Perversion mascara has been pretty much my one and only mascara.

  2. Thanks for your link in the #bblogger chat,
    I have the naked on the run palette and I don't use the bronzer, so may have to try it to blend eye shadows like you said!
