What’s in My Makeup Bag?
Beauty Trends change over time according to season, fashion trends and personal tastes.
In the summer I’ve been craving daring, bold colors – but I love some staple nude shades all the same. A good, voluminous mascara is a must, and I’ve found a combination of really awesome, no-budge foundations recently.
Let me share what’s in my makeup bag at the moment!
Your base will only be as flawless as your makeup tools.
I LOVE the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. Unlike other beauty blending sponges, the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponges are designed with one flat edge, so you can choose between the flat edge and the narrow point along with the round body to apply your foundation. I like to use the sponge damp to apply my foundation, and a dry sponge to apply any setting powders.
MUA Makeup Brushes
These are a TREASURE. For their price, they are very good in quality – dense, soft, and well made, with a professional feel. Must have!
Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation
I am absolutely in love with the Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation. An absolute steal for their price tag of only Rs 1148, the foundation mattifies skin, provides even medium-full coverage and has a stunning variety of shades.
L’Oreal Total Cover Foundation
A little on the pricey side but well worth it. The foundation provides full coverage and has a weightless, whipped, mousse like texture that melts into your skin. The blending power of this foundation is serious! The foundation stayed well over 6 hours, in this summer heat! My only gripe with this is the limited shade range.
Masarrat Misbah Silk Foundation
Another long-staying foundation that will not move – lasts and lasts throughout the day! Provides full coverage and covers up any dark spots and marks. Controls oiliness. Well worth buying!
MUA Whipped Velvet Blush are a favorite of mine right now. These cream-gel formulated blushers melt onto your cheeks, and give the most amazing color.
Current favorite shade: Spry, which gives the most beautiful natural glow.
Luscious Blush in Coral Glow – Summer is all about a gorgeous glow. Peach and orange shades tend to add a youthful glow on your face, and Luscious Blush in Coral Glow is one of the prettiest peachy blush shades!
Hard Candy Just Glow! Baked Illuminating Powder Duo provides a soft, beautiful glow. Two shades in one. Current favorite highlighter!
Luscious Brow Luxe Eyebrow Designer Pencil is a dupe for ABH Brow Pencil. This AMAZING item stays on your brows no matter how much you sweat! I use the shade 03.
TIP – if you have really dark hair and dark brows, use one shade lighter to shape your brows. If you have lighter (dyed) hair, use the same shade as your dyed hair or a darker shade.
A girl never has enough lipsticks! My current lip favorites include:
Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil – 210 Keep It Classy
A pretty muted berry matte shade.
MUA Luxe Vivid Colour Lipstick – Rocket
A gorgeous bright shocking pink.
Hard Candy Metallic Mousse Lip Color – Truffle
Hard Candy Mousse Lip Colors have a soft, weightless and long staying formula. Truffle is s smokey mauve metallic shade.
Garnier Micellar Water + Micellar Wipes
A makeup remover that cleanses, tones, removes stubborn makeup but is gentler than tap water? It’s a dream! I love using the wipes too, when I’m in a rush for bed 😀
