There are SOOO many beauty products out there.  Now don’t get me wrong I love all the options, but sometimes it makes it hard to know what to choose when the market is so abundant.  It has taken me quite a few years to figure out what product work best for me.  I have a pretty big collection of makeup/beauty products in the house.  It often surprises me the husband hasn’t asked me why I have so much … he probably assumes it’s a girl thing!  When traveling I try to be selective and only bring the essentials with me.  Below are the products I wouldn’t want to go a weekend without…

makeup_essentials

{1}  Too Faced Shadow Insurance
The makeup artist for my wedding actually turned me onto this eye shadow base. It brings out the pigments in the eye shadows and helps ensure the shadow color stays strong all day!

{2}  Almay Oil-free Eye Makeup Remover Pads
Great little pads to remove eye makeup. Ever put on some shadow that just doesn’t look right? These little puppies get it off without having to re-wash your entire face!

{3}  Boi-ing Concealer
I am one of those people who has dark circles under her eyes ALL the time. It doesn’t matter how much sleep I’ve gotten or what I eat the circles never go away. I’m always trying new dark circle corrector creams in an effort to lessen the dark circles as I’m confident they will never be totally gone.  A friend recommended I try Boi-ing under eye concealer.  It is amazing!  It’s the only product I have found so far that actually covers those horrible circles and stays on all day.

{4}  Even Skin® Portable Foundation
Great basic foundation that doesn’t dry out my skin or look “cakey”.

{5}  100 Eye Shadow Platte
I bought this eye shadow platte on complete impulse one afternoon while shopping. It was so cheap I justified the purchase without much effort.

{6}  Mascara – Lash Curling and Lash Thickening
During the day I just apply the lash curling mascara. If we are headed out at night to an event, party, dinner, etc I will first apply the lash curling and THEN add the lash thickening on top. It adds just the right about to make me feel “more dressed up” than just my daytime mascara.

{7}  Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes
These towelettes are fabulous. The makeup/mascara comes off so quick and leaves my skin feeling clean and not dried out!

I’m always on the lookout for something new.  What are your go to makeup and beauty products?

3 Thoughts on “What’s in Your Makeup Bag?

  1. I use the eye makeup remover pads as well. My other essential is a white eye liner. Lightly applied it makes your eyes look wide awake even when you are extremely tired. Oh and a nude gloss. You can very go wrong with a basic eye and a nude gloss.

  2. I have to vouch for the shadow insurance, Boi-ing, and eye shadows. Nicole got me started with the shadow insurance and gave me the eye shadow kit for my 30th bday. I got her started on the Boi-ing. All great products – and in my makeup kit!
