What’s In My Makeup Bag

It’s been a few months since I posted what’s in my makeup bag.  I’ve makeup routine by using some new brands.  Here’s what I’m using:
smashbox photo finish-smashbox photo finish foundation primer
1. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer: This product is essential in establishing a smooth look.  It softens and smoothes your face which helps your foundation look flawless.  I apply this before I apply my foundation.
bareminerals original foundation-bareminerals original foundation broad spectrum spf 15
2.  bareMinerals Original Powder Foundation:  I’ve been using this for about 10 years now.  Being that I have sensitive skin, this foundation works great with my skin.  I’ve tried a couple of other department store brands, but they made my face break out and itch.  I’ve stayed with bareMinerals.
bareminerals mineral veil-bareminerals mineral veil
3.  bareMinerals Mineral Veil: It looks like a powder and sets your foundation.  I’ve used this for about 10 years as well.
urban decay naked basics palette
4.  Urban Decay “Naked Basics” Eyeshadow: I’ve been using this for about a couple of months now.  It’s a great nude eyeshadow pallete that basically works well for everyone.  It stays on all day.
nars blush
5.  Nars blush in “Deep Throat”: I just received this blush from Sephora last week in the mail and I love it!  The color looks great with all shades of lipcolor and stays on all day.  I’ll be using this one for a long time.
estee lauder lip conditioner
6.  Estee Lauder Lip Conditioner: I apply this before my lipcolor for super soft lips.  I also use this when I’m not wearing lipcolor to keep my lips from getting chapped.
MAC Lipstick
7.  MAC lipcolor in “Lady Bug”: I just bought this lipcolor at the MAC store a couple of weeks ago.  I love the color!  As with all MAC lipsticks, it’s super smooth and the color is vibrant.
nars velvet matte lip pencil
8. NARS Velvet Matte lipcolor in “Cruella”: I received this in the mail from Sephora with my blush, as a birthday gift.  I love the color!  When I saw the name of the lipcolor “Cruella”, I immediately thought of Cruella deVil from the Disney movie; how fitting for a color as deep red as this one.  
I didn’t include my brow definer and mascara as I purchase these at the local Walgreens.  I use Cover Girl and Maybelline brands.
* Here’s a tip: If you like to shop at Sephora, sign up for their VIP rewards card.  I’ve been a member for several years now.  With each purchase you accumulate points.  You can spend the points on their promotional items.  During your birthday month, they’ll offer you a couple of items to choose from.  This month was my birthday month, so I picked the set of two NARS lipcolors, one being my favorite shown above.  I’ve gotten other free products too like a bareMinerals mini color set, perfume, and more!  Plus, if you buy online they always offer you to pick 3 free samples to include with your order.  Happy Shopping!
