Happy Friday!  As promised here is the rest of what’s in my makeup bag!  Keep reading to see and find shopping links.


Great cosmetics bag here and here


It’s like a kid in a candy store…


These are the things I cannot go without in my beauty routine!  Playing with makeup is better than playing dress up!  There are so many fun colors to choose from and you can make everything work with a little juzz…  Don’t get stuck in an everyday look – switch it up now and then and really get noticed.  Plus how much cheaper is beauty than clothing and shoes??!!

From the top left to bottom right:  Bare Minerals Ready Foundation (light, not cake-y, but full-coverage) // Chanel Highlighting Powder (perfect glow on top of cheek bones, similar here) // Nars Duo Eyeshadow, Cordura (perfect smokey eye) // MAC Diving Night Mineralize Eyeshadow, Until Dawn (perfect daytime, or paired with a bright lip) // Tweezerman Stainless Steel Mini Slant Tweezer (the best) // Nars Duo Eyeshadow, Alhambra (I wear this everyday) // Lorac Wild for Tantalizer Eyeshadow Palette (similar here) // Nars Bronzer, Laguna (don’t leave home without it – seriously my fav bronzer ever!) // Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette, Smokey Passion (great when you want a silver eye and bold lip)


I love experimenting with bright lip colors.  If I am doing little or no eye-makeup, I always have some sort of bold lip, whether it is purple, pink or red.  If I am doing a smoky eye, I always stick with a nude lip.  Liners are very important with any lip color to make it look professional.  Also, I love keeping my lips moisturized before applying any lipstick to make sure it goes on smoothly.

From left to right:  MAC Absolutely It Longwear Lip Liner // MAC Cremesheen Glass, Private Party // Le Rouge Givenchy, Berry Rose // Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain (stays on forever without drying) // Chanel Rouge Allure, Incandescente // Dior Contour Lipliner Pencil, Holiday Red (comes with a Dior pencil sharpener!) // MAC Lipstick, Creme D’Nude // MAC Lip Pencil, Boldly Bare
