Question of the Day: How many products do you keep in your makeup bag?

My makeup bag is one of the most important parts of my bag – I prefer to be confident with my makeup and this helps a lot! I always carry my makeup essentials around with me so that I can alter or refresh my makeup instantly. I do not bring tons of different makeup items with me but I have tried and true products that proved to be absolutely amazing on the go.

I always have my powder with me. It is one of the most important makeup products that I just have to have with me all the time. Even though I have dry to combination skin I still prefer to set my makeup with powder and to have my power in my makeup bag to get rid of oiliness on my forehead when needed. My all-time favorite is MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation that acts both as a powder foundation when applied wet and as a light setting powder when applied with a fluffy powder brush. When I have to use my powder outside the home I always use a sponge that comes with it.

As for concealer I prefer my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer + Treatment that instantly brightens up the under-eye area and is easy to apply with the fingers. It sets quickly and does not crease if set with powder. If I want to refresh my highlight I usually reach for Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color in Hollywood & Highlight that has a creamy formula but sets quickly and does not feel tacky or disturb the foundation (even powder ones!) at all. The Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome in Pink is a perfect cream blush that is extremely easy to apply and looks so flattering on the skin!

The only product I cannot imagine my makeup with is mascara. Even if I rush out of home with no makeup on – I always find a couple of minutes to apply a bit of mascara. My favorite one to use on the go is Lancome Grandiose Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara that instantly makes your lashes look long, fluffy and even false-like. Besides mascara I also love using (and bringing with me) a black liner, preferably smudge-proof, waterproof and long-wearing. The best option I’ve found so far is the NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto – it is extremely black and stays put on my waterline for ages.

As for the lips I always (always!!) have a lip balm with me. My absolute favorite is The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care that heals even the most chapped and dry lips and acts perfectly nice with any type of a lipstick or a lip gloss. I also love having several options for lip colour. I currently use Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Fab Pop as a shiny and hydrating lipstick, Sleek MakeUP Matte Me in Petal for ultra-matte lips and L’Oreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss in Protest Queen – either alone or over a lipstick.

So, it totals 10 products in my makeup bag. How many products do you carry around with you? Are there any permanent products? Or your makeup keeps changing every day? Share your thoughts and answers in the comments down below!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

Dorothea

I think I’ve got about 25 items in my make-up bag… at least four lippies, concealer, stick foundation (you never know…), eyeliner pencils (brown and black), powder, lip gloss, clear nail polish, two lip balms, two lip stains, tweezers, nail buffer, several lipliners, hand cream, q-tips in a small pouch… oh dear!
