Make It Up

What’s In My Makeup Bag?

This post was written a long time ago, but I’m finally posting it!

As I mentioned in a post last month, I’m finally getting into this makeup vibe. I’ve gotten into a routine of what I do.  When I’m in a rush (Sunday mornings especially), I can get my face together in 15 minutes.  But I’m working on starting earlier, so I can get everything just right.  Sometimes that doesn’t always work out. Right before I worked at a company’s promo event last weekend, I was able to promptly complete a made over face in 5.


Still working on adding more pizzaz. (More colors, contour, special techniques, etc.) But this will do for now.

Below is what I use on a regular basis.


Currently using elf brushes (But searching for additional tools!)






All of the items I use when I do my makeup on a regular day.

The List: Elf Tone Adjusting Face Primer, Make Up For Ever Full Coverage ConcealerClinique Even Better Foundation, CoverGirl Queen Pressed PowderMake Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder, Sephora Colorful Blush & Bronzer, Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist, Elf Natural Eye Palette (Similar), NYX Butter GlossThe Original Beauty Blender.

Right now, the most expensive item I have is my foundation.  Hopefully, I will be able to “move on up” this year with different products and having confidence to try them out. We’ll see!

Do you have a tried-and-true lineup? Any recommendations?
