The months really seem like they’re flying by this year! The next two months are going to be quite a whirlwind with finishing up classes and getting ready for graduation, but I have a few beauty products that have been staples for my everyday look. As always, I keep all of my essentials in this adorable Rebecca Minkoff makeup bag. Rimmel Wake me up Concealer in Fairly Light/Light
I can’t say enough good things about this concealer. It provides the perfect amount of coverage and looks really natural. No joke, I stock up every time I’m at Walmart! Purminerals 4 in 1 Powder Foundation
I mentioned this product in my Ulta haul from a few days ago, and I’ll have a separate review on it next week so stay tuned for that, but so far, it’s been a staple in my makeup bag and I love how portable it is! Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess and Blush in Dollface
I think I’ve mentioned both the bronzer and blush in my posts before, so I’m not going to go into too much detail. I actually got both of these in a set from Ulta a few years ago and I love them so much! They’re so pigmented, and absolutely perfect for travel. * Sometimes I’ll switch out the blush for another one, usually one of my NARS blushes, but this one practically lives in my makeup bag! Benefit Gimmie Brow
I love this brow gel for times when I need quick groomed and defined brows. It’s also really great for layering over the Anastasia brow wiz for extra hold and color. Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara
I’ve owned quite a few tubes of this mascara, but I haven’t bought one in a while just because they’re pretty expensive for a mascara. I found this sample size in my drawer full of samples…yes I need a whole drawer for my samples, just remember that the first step to fixing a problem is admitting you have one lol! Anyway, the tiny size is great for throwing into my makeup bag and it performs just as well as the full size. I also really like the waterproof one, but be sure to have some heavy duty makeup remover on hand becuase it’s probably the most durable waterproof mascara I’ve ever used! NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Vie Vinento
So many bloggers an youtubers have raved about this eyeliner and it wasn’t until I used and ran out of my sample size that I realized how amazing it is! I keep the full size in my makeup bag because lately I’ve been doing my makeup on the train or in school because I don’t have the time to do it before I leave home. It’s the perfect black eyeliner for all of your needs and it comes with a handy sharpener on the other end!
Anastasia Brow Wiz
Like many of the other cult favorites in my makeup bag, this brow pencil is no different. It lives up to its reputation which has kept me a loyal brow wiz lover for the past three years! Sometimes I’ll throw in a little Bobbi Brown eyeshadow brush and my NARS And God Created the Woman eyeshadow palette if I know I’ll need a dramatic eye look later in the day. I also keep a lip balm and some kind of pinky lip color in my purse.
I know it seems like I keep a lot of products, but I try to make the most out of the tiny sample size products I have and since I’ve been super busy this semester, it’s really convenient to have an entire face of makeup with me whenever I might need it. What do you keep in your makeup bag? Do you have any go to products for on-the-go makeup? Tell me all about them in the comments! I miss, and love you all, so I’m so glad to be back! Thanks for stopping by!
