Every month I usually change up the products that are in my makeup bag. If I don’t do this, I often find myself in a bit of a rut and end up using the same handful of products for several months without experimenting with anything new. Even though I like to change things up often, there are still certain types of products that will always be in my makeup bag because I definitely couldn’t function properly without them.
The Products That Never Leave My Makeup Bag
YSL Blur Perfector | I’m totally in love with the Yves Saint Laurent Blur Perfector and I always keep it in my bag. The balm changes to a soft, smooth powdery finish on the skin, leaving it glowing! It sets my makeup amazingly and I just have to carry it with me. I also love using it as a primer and I have to say, it gives an amazing finish to my makeup. I love how the blur perfecto literally absorbs oil and transforms my skin into a soft, velvety texture.
Lip Stick | I would be crazy to not carry a lipstick. Even though most lipsticks are long-lasting, I always like to carry a lipstick just in case. I usually carry whatever lipstick I’m using on rotation. Lately, I’ve been using a lot of nude shades. So the Anastasia Beverly Hills in the shade Staunch is what I’m carrying.
Mascara | I always keep a mascara in my bag even when I’m wearing lashes. I love having my lashes look perfect. For now, my go-to mascara is the Milk Makeup Kush Mascara. This is my new favourite mascara! The packaging is so super luxe. The formula goes on smoothly without clumping, even with subsequent coats. It gives great volume and length, but I especially love the lash definition. I have thick lashes that clump very easily, but the Kush Mascara wand perfectly coats each lash. And the best part? It lasts all day without any flaking. I LOVE this stuff. It’s a must-try!
Concealer | I always make sure to keep some sort of concealer in my makeup bag, just for any instances when I might need a little extra coverage or to spot conceal. I really love the Too Faced Born This Way concealer because it’s so hydrating and I’m able to wear it by itself on days that I don’t want to wear a ton of makeup but still want to even out my complexion.
Translucent Powder | To combat oiliness at times, I like to keep some sort of translucent powder on hand. I love the MAC Prep + Prime Translucent Powder and I carry that in my bag all the time. Right now, I’m using the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder to set my foundation and usually use the MAC Powder throughout the whole day.
Brow Gel | Defined brows really help pull your whole look together. So I always carry the Bobbi Brown Brow Gel and it’s my absolute favourite brow gel as it grooms and shapes my brows to perfection with just a few swipes. As someone with unruly brows, I couldn’t ask for more.
Fragrance | I have been in love with the Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto fragrance since I can remember. I always carry a mini version of the Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto in my skin.
