A few months ago I did my what's in my bag post so I thought I could also do this new post called what's in my make up bag.

When I choose the products for my make up bag I always try to pick some of my favourites items, the ones I know they are going to perform well. Also is a very good idea take some multi purpose and versatile products, like a neutral blush or a cheek and lip stain.

This is what I got in my make up bag at the moment:

As a foundation I choose a light formula like Vitalumiere Aqua by Chanel. It is a great foundation that leaves a natural and glowy finish. Also the packaging is compact and light witch is perfect to carry with you. Concealer is also important, and this one by Collection 2000 has a great coverage and is long lasting.  The powder is another essential. Important for setting the make up and for touch ups during the day. I always carry this compact powder by Chanel, Mat Lumière Luminous Matte Powder SPF10.

For the rest of the face, I like this blush by Nars called Douceur. It has a lovely brown-pink colour witch look very flattering and will give you instant cheekbones.

I like to apply the L'Oreal Highlighter Pen to brighten de face. Apply it on the brow bone, top of the cheeks, cupid's bow,...

A brown- bronze eye pencil is a must, you can use as an eye shadow and for making a subtle line. Teddy by Mac is my favourite. Choose a little bottle or a sample of mascara to carry in your make up bag. This one is Inimitable by Chanel.

We cannot forget the eye brows, this pencil by Catrice is a great option. 

A highlighter pencil like Eye Bright by Benefit is also fantastic to bring with you, apply it in the inner corner of your eyes, water line, brow bone. Instant brighter eyes!

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, multitasking products like a cheek&lip stain becomes very handy in your make bag. This is a mini size of the Posietint by Benefit, a gorgeous vibrant pink.

Last, a good lip balm is really essential. I always carry a Korres Lip butter cause they're very moisturising. A colored lip balm is a very good choice. Choose a moisturising formula but that gives a nice and subtle colon to your lips. Lip Glow by Dior is one of favourites products.

The brush is the number 3P by Inglot. Is a very versatile face brush witch make it perfect for powder, blush or the bronzer.

A small bottle of perfume is also necessary. This one is Omnia by Bvlgary. My make up bag is from Victoria's Secret.

If I had to choose only 10 products I think I would choose the following selection. My 10 make up bag Essentials:

Hope you liked the post! Tell me, what are your make up essentials?

  1. Love this post! My make up bag essentials are: the powder brush from real techniques, davidoff cool water perfume, luster by nars, bare minerals powder and catrice camouflage concealer!
