Let me make it clear from the very start that my dream makeup bag is ultra-cushioned so my powders don’t crack no matter how many times I drop them, and the material is some kind of super lightweight fabric that absorbs all the heaviness of my glass foundation bottles and multiple setting sprays so, magically, when I carry the bag I feel like it weighs nothing at all. Also, if it’s not asking too much, this dream bag will allow me to fit in as many items as my makeup loving heart desires.
Who can relate?
Now that I’ve laid out the plans for this dream bag, what should go in? I’ve definitely got some beauty faves I cannot live without (or, well, probably could but life would certainly never be the same). Then some products I’ve been drooling over for ages but just haven’t found the budget space for just yet. Let’s see how many products I plan on cramming into this magical makeup bag of mine. (AS ALWAYS: All makeup mentioned is cruelty-free.)
NYX Total Drop Foundation
I own this foundation now and it’s my current fave. It’s extremely lightweight, so I don’t feel it on my face even after eight plus hours of wear. (And I more often than not have eight hour plus days of makeup.) This is a light to medium coverage foundation, but it suits my purposes just fine. Most days I apply only over redness to create a more even skin tone. Even better: the price point! A bottle is about $18.
Colourpop Eyeshadow Brushes
Maybe not the most popular brushes in the business, but every single one that I’ve bought has been super soft and great quality. I want to own about five (maybe not the craziest number, but still a lot for a non-beauty guru) of their tapered blending brush, nothing has blended my shadows as well.
Urban Decay All-Nighter Spray
This is first setting spray I ever tried, and probably the last one I will ever use.
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick
If you want a liquid lipstick that can stay for hours without smudging, without drying out your lips (within reason, you still have to exfoliate), without staining every glass you drink from, you’re looking at it right now. My absolute fave, I just wish they had more shades!
Sugarpill Eye Shadows
I have never tried these shadows but they are my absolute dream come true. I know, I get it, these colours may not be everyone’s dream, but I’m in love with BRIGHT, with NEON shadows. Can these please be mine now?
Ofra Cosmetics Highlighter
I live — I breathe! — highlighter. Don’t expect me to leave the house without highlighting my cheekbones, my nose, my browbone, my eyebrow arch, my left elbow. I neeeeed the glow. Which is why it’s pretty unforgiveable that I’ve never even touched an Ofra product.
