Makeup Bag Essentials

I thought I'd share with everyone my makeup bag essentials.
I carry a small makeup bag, at the moment I'm using the Orbis makeup bag that I got with the Aqua Force trial set.
I carry this load of makeup everywhere I go, they include:

  • Blotting sheets (Boscia Green Tea Linens from Fuz)
  • Paul & Joe Moisturizing Mist
  • Smith's Rosebud Salve
  • Mirror
  • Prinavista Pressed Powder
  • Paul & Joe Moisture Gel
  • Hanskin Waterdrop Hand Cream
  • Hair ties
  • Lipstick
  • Eye makeup

I always carry the same items with me. The only thing that changes is the eye makeup. If I'm using a certain palette or in this case, the MM liner, then I always have it there for those just in case moments. The lipstick rarely changes. I usually bring the Maquillage or P&J lipstick with me. I'm using my glosses less and less nowadays because I don't like how it feels heavy in the summer.
I want to get a new makeup bag, one with a mirror that opens up like a palette. I used to use the silver Integrate one that I got as a GWP, but the zipper kept messing up.
Wouldn't you agree my makeup essentials simple? haha Sometimes I see others carry their blush, 2 lipsticks, liquid foundation, mascara or lash curlers in their bags, but is that necessary? For me, I don't like the extra weight and it's not like I'm going to add more makeup to my face, especially when my face starts getting oily. It'll just turn my face into an oily mess and look cakey. The only thing that I'll touch up on is eye makeup, but not mascara.

What's in your makeup bag? Would you care to take a picture? I like snooping around haha.

Oh, good news for those who like sponges! Sasa now carries the 3 Girls/Beauty sponges that are popular in Taiwan!
Remember these? I loooove these sponges!!! I got mine at Bobodave for $1.72USD, and I realized yesterday that Sasa has them now. They also have different sizes. The small costs $0.60CAD, medium $0.80CAD and large $1.00!! Mihoko Shop also sells them, but for $4.50USD for 2.
I'm definitely going to stock up on these when I head to Hong Kong!! Did I convince you to buy them yet?

I keep forgetting to comment back for many posts XDXD Haven't really been keeping up lately.

Cute makeup bag & essentials! I actually really like your makeup bag! I always carry a separate mirror with me anyways even if my bag should have one. I should do another post since my makeup bag has changed so much, hehe.

I would love to order from Sasa but I don't want to get hit with customs fees...I hope Adam Beauty will start carrying these sponges.

Haha I don't carry much makeup around either, usually its oil blotting sheets and lipstick + gloss of the day.

Jenn said...

I'm so inconsistent with what I carry, lol.

Ooo I got one of the sponges but I hadn't used it yet-I'll have to give it a try ;)
