What's in my makeup bag?

Have you ever wondered what a makeup artist carries around in her personal makeup bag? Well you are in luck. I am about to give you a peek into mine. While the contents change based on what makeup I am wearing that day, I usually always have concealer, powder foundation, lipsticks, lip liners and gloss.

Here is what I am carrying around today:


My trusty favorite from Makeup Revolution always comes with me. If needed I can sheer it out and wear it as a foundation. The Hourglass tube seen here is not really a concealer, but a lighter coverage skin care hybrid meant for mid day touch-up.

Powder Foundation

My Aveda Inner Light Mineral Foundation always comes with me. It helps for touchups but provides full coverage. My compact also includes an all-over face color from Aveda that can be used as eyeshadow or blush.

Lip Liner

I generally carry a few of these. Above I have a true red (Hourglass Icon), and two nude liners (Milani Nude, Urban Decay Naked). These pair well with pretty much any look.


The lipstick I carry changes pretty frequently. Today I have Jeffree Star Cosmetics Celebrity Skin and Milani D'Oro.

Liquid Lipstick

When I want a matte formula I will reach for a liquid lipstick. It is always good to have options. Above is Stila Petal and Jeffree Star Cosmetics in Allegedly.


I always want to be prepared to take my look from day to night. This is Armour Beauty in Marilyn. 

Lip Shimmer 

On days where my lips are chapped I opt for a balmy textured lip shimmer such as the above Cherry & Plum from Burt's Bees.


You know I am not capable of writing a post that doesn't include brushes. I usually carry this smaller one (top) from Everyday Minerals and the shorter handled Complexion Blending Brush from Eco Tools.

I hope you enjoyed this look inside my makeup bag. What essentials do you carry?
