I laid them out and behold:
I thought I had loads more, but I threw some out so I’m left with only these. Not much but this is my personal collection. I don’t share this with anyone, nor am I a makeup artist of any sort (so maybe I did a friend or two).
I collect more brushes than anything else because I believe that the tools are more important than the makeup itself. Plus they last a lifetime. Plus brushes don’t make your face break out or turn red.
Second most important in my book is foundation. Foundation covers most of your face and depends on how you apply it, they can appear cakey; or, they simply blend in like second skin. On normal days, I skip most of the makeup except foundation (after moisturizer).
For me, it’s important for the foundation to have at least SPF 15 because my face burns easily and I hate to endure people asking ‘why you so red’. After a week, the face turns ashy and I have to answer to questions like ‘why you so tan, you went holiday is it??’.
I keep 5 foundations because I tend to change color alot so yeah.
Also I looove liquid and gel blushes!! People can’ t tell that you’re wearing one, they think it’s natural!
Owh and I just bought a new brush set by Real Techniques via The Fashionette. By the way, they’re SUPER affordable, you’ll be surprised. I’ll review them once I’ve got my hands on them.
After much blabbing about makeup, naturally I’ll have to show you my go-to look.
It looks like this:
Believe me, this look can go far. I’ve used this to go to kenduris, gatherings. I even used the same stuff for my wedding! Except for more foundation, eyeliner and mascara for added drama.
So that’s it for my what’s in the makeup bag post. Usually I carry a small bag containing only essentials. Talk about that next time!
Till then, xoxo!
