What's in My Makeup Bag

I most certainly did not wake up like this.
  1. Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation
    Worth every penny. Sometimes I just wear this and mascara.
  2. Estée Lauder double wear concealer
  3. Erase Paste by Benefit
  4. Bobbi Brown illuminating bronzing powder
  5. Bobbi Brown powder blush
  6. Eyeshadow primer potion from Urban Decay
  7. Naked Basics eyeshadow palette by Urban Decay
    I am not the kind of woman who wakes up and says, "Maybe I'll wear teal eyeshadow today." I use the first five shades in this 6-shade palette daily. A mix of Foxy and WOS on the lids, naked 2 on the crease, faint on the outer 1/4 of the crease, a little Venus on the inner corners and then foxy again above the crease up to the brow. Brows get filled in with Faint.
  8. Mascara
    I am still on the hunt for the perfect waterproof mascara (my eyes water like crazy). Currently using a Chanel sample mascara I got with a Nordstrom purchase.
  9. Bobbi Brown long-wear gel eyeliner
    In violet ink - makes my blue eyes pop more so than black or brown eyeliner does. I apply it after the eyeshadow primer and before the eyeshadow.
  10. Balancing Act pressed powder by Pur
  11. Various lipsticks by Estée Lauder and Lancôme
  12. Carmex
    I've tried every lip balm at every price point and old school wins.
  13. Brushes by Sigma
    Purchased on Amazon. The best brushes and a fraction of the cost of all the other ones. The Giorgio Armani makeup lady actually told me to buy these instead of hers.
  14. Eyelash curler by Shu Uemura
    Have had it for years. Clean it daily with a Burt's Bees makeup remover wipe.
