What’s in My Make-Up Bag?

The inside scoop to simple face of makeup

For my makeup look, I invest in high-end prices, but have a small collection of them. I love wearing a natural face of makeup, where it is seen as a “no-makeup makeup look”. I love enhancing my features, but at the same time I like keeping it real. These products are great if you want to invest in quality products that give you a natural, glowing look for class or to go out in. These are my go-to makeup products in my bag.

FACE

FOUNDATION: I have been using the Diorskin Forever foundation for almost six years now. Once I started, I never went back to any other foundations.This is my holy grail foundation, as it provides the perfect amount of coverage. This foundation has a tremendous staying power, where it will stay on your face the whole day, while giving you a dewy finish. For a medium to high coverage foundation, it is light weight on the face.

BRONZER: Bronzer is a must-have for me, as it adds color and definition to my face. Many bronzers are either too brown or too muddy. The powder bronzer I use is the YVES SAINT LAURENT LES SAHARIENNES Bronzing stones Sun Kissed Glow Creator in the color “Jasper”. This bronzer is great for contouring the cheekbones, adding great definition to the face. This foundation is a good investment, as it lasts a very long time (just hit pan after a year and a half!) and it provides for the perfect bronzing look. It has a matte finish, which adds to the natural makeup look.

BLUSH: For blush, I use the DIORBLUSH vibrant colour powder blush in shade 553 cocktail peach. This is a light peachy color, that is not too aggressive on the face. It gives a very natural rosy look, with subtle shimmers. I love applying this on the apples of my cheeks to add to the glowing, natural look. It adds great color to my face without being too much.

POWDER: To finish off the face, I use the Chanel LES BEIGES Healthy Glow Sheer Colour powder. This power is perfect to finish off the face, as it blends the bronzer and blush well, so the
y are not too harsh on the face. The powder is also sheer, where it does not add much color. Rather, it focuses on helping to finish the foundation, making it stay on longer and better. I use shade N° 20.

EYES
 MASCARA: To top off my whole look, the last thing you would find in my makeup bag is mascara. I do not do anything else to my eyes besides enhancing the length of my lashes. I believe that mascara makes the biggest difference, making you look awake and alive. Finding the perfect mascara is different for everyone, as everyone’s lashes are different. Mascaras can either lengthen or thicken your lashes. It is definitely a personal preference. I love using Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara in the color extreme black. This is a true black mascara that is great for adding length and volume without ever getting too clumpy. It stays on all day, making my lashes full and long.
