What's In My Everyday Makeup Bag?

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

I just realized that ever since I started working last May, I rarely change the products inside my everyday makeup bag. I consider these as mainstays for I have tried and tested their staying power and how well they can cope with my strenuous teacher life.

1. Marrionaud N'38 Eyebrow Brush -- I know you know how particular I am with my brows and needless to say, this brush helps me in achieving the perfect shape that I want. (Watsons, Php59.75)

2. K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h -- If you want an eyeliner that stays on for hours and won't smudge, go get this eyeliner. This particular pen has been with me for almost a year now and still, it is working like heaven. It is, and will always be, my favorite eyeliner! I love it so much that I have 2 backups in my stash and I am still asking E to buy me more in Japan. (Beauty Bar, Php895.00)

3. K-Palette Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow -- This gives a natural-looking brows that stays on for hours. I, usually, apply this at around 7:00 AM and it remains intact until 8:00 PM or until I decided to wash it off. Whenever I feel like running around with my students, I put this on and I can expect that I would still have my defined eyebrows even after sweating. Yes, it is sweat-proof, baby! (Beauty Bar, Php1050)

4. Fanny Serrano Eyelash Curler -- This may not be the best eyelash curler but it performs well compared to other inexpensive ones. I will continue to use this until I get my hands on the Shu Uemura baby on December. (Watsons, Php175.00)

5. Wet n' Wild Ultimate Brow Kit -- Whenever I feel the need to have that strong-looking, defined eyebrows, I use this eyebrow kit. I like that it stays on for hours but I hate that it is only available in one shade. I might let go of this since I am planning to dye my hair lighter. (MakeUpHolics)

6. K-Palette Zero Kuma Cover Concealer -- I am now letting you call me a K-Palette addict because I am! Just like the eyeliners and eyebrow pens, this concealer is very long-lasting! This stays on for hours without drying the sensitive eye areas. It is very lighweight too considering that it gives an opaque finish. K-Palette is LOVE! (Beauty Bar, Php895)

7. Marrionaud N'32 Angled Blush Brush -- I use this brush to buff my powder foundation, to contour and to apply my blush. Versatility at its finest! (Watsons, Php139.75)

8. Sephora Flashy Liner Waterproof in Flashy Black -- Since I don't have enough time to put on eye makeup, I usually rely on eyeliners. Once set, this eyeliner doesn't smudge nor fade.

9. Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eye Pencil -- For a more natural look, I use brown to line my eyes. I love that it has shimmers that make me look a bit glam despite the lack of sleep.

10. Maybelline Clear Smooth All In One Shine Free Cake Powder -- Maybelline has recently released an improved version of their Clear Smooth powder foundation hoping to solve the breaking issues of the old one. I am about to hit the pan and still, the powder stays intact which means that the problem was solved! We can now enjoy the goodness of this powder without the worries of it breaking into pieces again. (Maybelline, Php249.00)

11. ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer Powder -- I love that I have two products in one packaging. The blush looks perfect for everyday while the bronzer works great for contouring. (ELF, Php249.00)

12. Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo -- Mascara is a must, especially when I want have that bigger-looking eyes. And since I am into foolproof makeup products, I put my trust into Majolica Majorca when it comes to mascaras. It may be a bit pricey but I know I am getting my money's worth. (Majolica Majorca, Php795.00)

13. L'Oreal HIP Shine Struck Liquid Lip Color in Arresting -- I change my lip color almost everyday, I think. But lately, I am fond of using  bold colors at work. I love that this lip color is very pigmented and it leaves a stain even after hours of talking. (MakeUpHolics, Php180.00) -- Insider's Tip: These are usually on sale at MakeUpHolics. :)

14. Carmex Lip Balm -- Do I need to say more? My lips are dry so having a good lip balm is a must! (Robinson's Department Stores, Landmark and PCX stores, Php109.75)

I want to see what's inside your makeup bags too! :)
