My Everyday Makeup Bag

IMG_6501

The Everyday Makeup Bag. A pretty important pouch, if I do say myself. Previously, I kept all my makeup in the shallow, middle drawer of my vanity because I thought it was most practical. However, I noticed I would constantly have to open it to get more products which would result in me nailing myself in the stomach. Imagine if I was in a hurry and needed something from in there, I would be dead. 

I then began to think of ways to reorganize my collection because I was over stuffing the drawer. I thought what can I do to spend no money, but have some structure in my makeup collection. So I decided to have one makeup bag dedicated to all my everyday essentials, while I keep everything else in little bins in my drawer. In case if I have the courage to open the drawer even knowing the consequences.

Face // I keep it pretty basic, except for the foundation sample. which I have been trying to extend the life expectancy of because I am currently in a transition shade (#darkskinprobs). Other than that, I have the normal products for face like blush, concealer,primer, and bronzer/contour.

Current Products: NARS All-Day Luminous Foundation (sample...lol), Topshop All Over Glow, Maybelline FitMe Blush in Medium Coral, Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze, Benefit Erase Paste, Topshop Cheek Jelly in Reign, Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger.

I have written about the Benefit Erase Paste here. The Top Shop Cheek Jelly and All Over Glow here.

Eyes // As for eyes, I go a bit overboard with mascara. I like so many, making it harder to choose a specific one to keep in the bag. I have 100% switched out my Naked Palette for the Too Faced Natural Matte Palette, which is not very surprising considering I have talked about it before.

Current Products: Too Faced Natural Eye Palette, Yorom Cream Eyeshadow, Urban Decay Perversion Mascara (sample), MUFE Smokey Lash (sample), Maybeline One by One, Mac Naked Pigment, Stila Stay All-day, CK One Click Mascara, Maybelline The Colossal Volume Mascara, Maybline Big Eyes.

I have written about the Yorom eyeshadow stick here, the CK One Click here, Maybeline Big Eyes here, The TooFaced Natural Eyes here.

Lips // As for lips, I like to keep my most expensive products in the bag because it will encourage me to use them more.  However two products that are stapled into my Autumn/Winter edits would have to be MAC's Velvet Teddy and Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Whimsical. Let me know if you would like a Winter edit because I have some new products not this bag, I will need to include. I also carry about a hand lotion because I have insanely dry skin.

Current Products: YSL Glossy Lip Stain in #31, Revlon Lacquer Balm in Whimsical, YSL Sheer Candy in Luscious Cherry, Mac Velvet Teddy, and A Nourishing Hand Cream from BBW in Warm Vanilla Sugar.

I have talked about the Glossy Lip Stain here, Mac Velvet Teddy here, and my Spring edit here.

Right now it is 6:03 p.m. I was to supposed to upload this post at 6 and before that, upload at my usual 12:00 a.m. time. I kind of have been slacking on life, but I am trying to get it together. Anyways, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you guys had an amazing spending time with your family and friends. I enjoyed making a new table setting, I did a minimal look this year.

If you have any question on any of the products above, leave a comment and I will answer it to the best of my ability. Also I did some serious Black Friday damage, of course, online. To be honest, everything went black and I really don't know what I purchased.

Finally, as of 11/27/2015, TOWNHOUSE PALETTE REACHED 1, 500,000 views! Which is probably the best birthday present I could ask for this. Thank for all the love and support for the past 3.9 years, I could not accomplish what I have without you. Can't wait for Townhouse Palette's 4th birthday next month. Happy Friday ^_^
