I'm spending my Presidents' Day off from work, bundled up at home and rummaging through my makeup bag to make amends. I showed you the contents of my everyday makeup bag last spring and there are a few familiar products. For one, I've been using the same makeup pouch that I got when I purchased a Japanese magazine. It's the perfect size and although it's gotten a little grayer with daily use, it's held up pretty well. I'd say this is more of a beauty bag than just a makeup bag because this is the stuff I take with me to touch up and refresh throughout the day.
I love the Clean Well Natural Hand Sanitizer and was out of it for months. I only repurchased it the other day at Whole Foods and won't be without it in the future. I have a travel size of the Supergoop! Hand Cream which is ultra moisturizing but not my favorite because it feels almost gritty and the scent is very strong. It saves my chapped skin but I can't wait to finish it up. I'm almost out of my Rohto Eye Drops so I have the Cool+ version in my bag. A fine toothed comb is a must in my bag because my hair is always giving me issues. A have a small stack of tissues because the cold weather always makes my nose run.... Just being real here. The Clean & Clear Oil Blotting Sheets are my favorite and I have these cute pink ones from Asia. Again, I almost always have alcohol wipes on hand in case I develop a cold sore or get a nasty paper cut. A mini hairclip is also a makeup bag must-have in case I need to clip up my bangs, which are proving a huge pain to grow out.
In terms of actual makeup, I always have my Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Powder* with me for touching up. This powder never looks cakey and tones down any redness that may appear after my makeup has faded. I use a little Ecotools Kabuki Brush to reapply my powder and wrap it in a brushguard to keep the bristles from getting splayed or dirty. I also keep my the saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer handy for redness around my nose and on any spots. This Korean concealer is very lightweight yet surprisingly decent at covering hyper-pigmentation.
On any given day I usually have about five different lip products in my makeup bag because I tend to throw in the lippie I am wearing for the day and forget to take it back out. I still keep my tube of theBalm Stainiac in the hopes that I will finish it up. The Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturizer is a simple glossy lip balm that I can put over the lip stain if I need more hydration. Two brand new lippies that I've allowed myself to open from my makeup stash are the Shiseido Veiled Rouge in RD302* and the Fresh Sugar Berry Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15. I've tried the Fresh lipbalms from the Sephora birthday gift and love the texture and scent. The berry one is already a winner in my book and I'm thrilled it was included in the Sephora Give Me More Lip Set. The Shiseido lipstick is a brand new product for spring and I'm still testing it out to formulate my thoughts.
