What's in my Makeup Bag!?
Today I'm gonna show you what is in my makeup bag. Let me start by saying that I have been decluttering every single spot of my house. Yes, that includes makeup stash, I know the horror right! Getting rid of your makeup is not easy but necessary! Especially those products that you no longer use or love, and of course the expired stuff. Trust me it feels awesome to have less. Less is the new black.
ok back to my makeup bag.
I used to carry a large purse with a big makeup bag that basically housed, my life. Now that I have a new found love for minimalism, I carry a smaller purse & makeup bag with fewer products.
Here is what I currently have in my makeup bag...
Of course, I can not be a lip junkie and not carry lip products. I gotta always have a lip balm, right now I'm loving the Red Apple Lipstick Rallye Balm. It's moisturizing and the added natural SPF of 8 makes it perfect for the summer.
One of my absolute favorite lipsticks, Maven Mauve from Red Apple Lipstick is also a passenger in my fabulous bag. This shade is just perfect for an everyday look. Red Apple Lipstick has amazing lip products from lip liners, lip glosses, lip balms, to lip scrubs. Always vegan, non-toxic and cruelty-free. As you can probably see in the photo, I'm almost out of this pretty shade. Yes, I will be repurchasing.
FYI: I have a coupon code for you to get 22% off your $50 Red Apple Lipstick order. Use code nz22.
A Vitamint Lip Creamstick from 100% Pure in Vino, yes another lip product! I kinda feel bad to show you guys this because I don't think its available anymore. I didn't see it on their site. Minty, moisturizing, and the color is fabulous.
Have been loving lip glosses lately, plus you never know when the mood of rocking glossy, juicy lips is going to strike! At the moment I'm really digging Padparadscha from Modern Minerals. A coral red with a bit of gold shimmer, usually I stay away from glosses with shimmer but this one is so pretty. This gloss is also made with pink camellia flower essence and pink tourmaline gemstone essence, pretty cool right?
The other thing I carry is a natural mascara, always! Right now it's the Maracuja Mascara from 100% Pure. Not only is it pretty, but also gives my lashes some length, fullness and does not flake or smudge. It is a wet formula, so if you are not into wet formulas you might not like this one. In my opinion, it gets better the older it gets. If you want me to do a post on my favorite vegan mascaras let me know.
That is everything I carry in my makeup bag. Oh, I do carry some Tatcha blotting papers for my oily t-zone but they are way to wide to fit in my small makeup bag, so I carry it in my purse.
Hope you enjoyed this quick post. What is in your makeup bag?
