I don't know about you, but I love seeing what other bloggers/celebrities/my friends have in their makeup bags. Call me snoopy. Surprisingly, in the 3 years I've been writing Marie a la Mode, I've never done a "What's in my bag/makeup bag?" post so I thought it was time! These are just a few items I use on a regular basis and have to have when traveling.
L-R Starting fromt the top left row:
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation 240 Natural Beige - smooth like butter! I only use foundation on special occasions or when I'm going to be photographed, like for outfit posts.
NARS Copacabana Illuminator - I mix this with my Colorstay foundation and it gives me a nice, luminous glow. Yes, "luminous."
MAC Studio Fix C2 - I've been using this since I was 14. It's a powder and foundation in one but it's not cake-y.
NYX Super Skinny Marker in Carbon Black - I'm not good at putting on normal liquid liner, it's usually a war between me and the liner and the liner always wins, with the black ink ending halfway up my eyelid. I don't have a steady hand but with this, it's easy to apply and it lasts all day.
Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara in Black - This mascara really lengthens and extends my eyelashes. (Just like Pilates and my limbs!)
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - I've used this for years. To see a review click, here. (I compare it to Cle de Peau's $70 concealer.)
NARS Orgasm Blush - My all-time favorite blush. I love the color and it looks good on any skin tone. It's popular for a reason!
ILIA Lipstick in Shell Shock - My friend Janis got this for me for Christmas and I love the color. Sorry you can't see it in this photo! In Edmonton you can buy ILIA lipsticks at LUX Beauty Boutique.
Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm - An everyday staple. Very soothing and all-natural.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm - Very creamy but very matte and the color is gorgeous. It goes great with the NARS Orgasm blush.
MAC Eyeshadow in Vanilla - I always use this, on it's own or as a base underneath darker colors. It doesn't crack or cake on the eyelid.
Body Shop Eye Shadow in 07 - A great color to use for contouring.
