Every Monday Twitter has a hashtag for #makeupMonday and boy oh boy are there some fantastic tips from beginning makeup artists, to well know MUA who blog and even the beautiful @SamFineBeauty who paints the face of Iman, Tyra Banks and Jennifer Hudson to name a few. Well I'm not that good and certainly don't aspire to be. What I do enjoy is having fun enhancing the beautiful round face my parents gave me and yes the small head that rocks this brush cut with fiiieeerrrcceeennneessss.
So my G.L.A.M. Chic's latest post was a challenge to share what was in your makeup bag by simply posting pictures. Check them out below. I'm a lightweight when it comes to a makeup bag but I do visit a mirror a few times throughout the day to ensure my starting look hasn't faltered. I look forward to hearing what's in your bag if you don't have a personal blog or seeing your pictures if you do.
Here's my cheezy makeup bag. Don't judge it. I'm a teacher and all I need the bag to do is hold the makeup :)
Now for the content of the bag..which is really what the post is about:
Standard beauty stuff to get me through a work day. I have a mirror, MAC's prep and prime for the lips, a Jordana Lipliner in Silver Lilac (Walgreens for 99 cents), GAP Banana Smoothie flavored lip balm with SPF 18, my favorite sheer gloss in Nude 33 by Korres from Sephora, my new favorite mascara *bats lashes* Great Lash by Maybelline in Very Black, for my hands and lips (or any other body part) Vaseline, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Deep Dark, Mac Pressed Blot Powder in Deep Dark (look at old Facebook pictures and the shine has been chased away) , Iman's Posh blush (my blush changes), Opti-Free Rewetting Drop for contacts that I never use, Bath and Body Works anit-bacterial hand gel, min travel powder brush from a Sephora brush kit, a Sephora lip brush (ok so I don't use it each time I apply lipstick..ugghhh), a Sonia Kashuk large powder brush (I think at least that is what I use it for), a cheap brow brush & comb and thank to @SamFineBeauty a lash curler that I used on the regular for about a month (although I've owned it forever but didn't know how to use it).
Thanks for peeking inside my handbag which is absolutely fabulous if I might say so myself. Remember true beauty is an inward trait and no amount of makeup products will cover the real you. Do the world a favor and shine, shine, SHINE, mwah!
