Everyday Makeup Bag

Everyday Makeup Bag

Welcome back to The Brunettes Secrets! Today I will share what is currently in my everyday makeup bag. My day-to-day makeup is very simple and easy to achieve because I only use a few products.

I start by applying some BB cream around the face. This Dr. Jart one is very lightweight and doesn't feel thick or cakey.  Then I apply some of my favorite concealer, the Naked Skin from Urban Decay. This is the best concealer on the market. I have found it is light weight but has incredible coverage and is a perfect color match for my skin.  Next, I lightly dust some Laura Mercier translucent powder down the T-zone of the face. Sometimes I skip this step, depending on the weather. If it is hot out and I am more likely to get oily, I will make sure to do this step.

The next step is the most important for me, applying blush. I find blush makes the biggest difference on brunettes and bronzer makes a big difference on blondes. I love the Tarte cheek stains because of their pigment and jelly texture. They blend easily and, once again, it doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything. The last face product is highlighter. Women's obsession with highlighter, has gotten crazy over the past few years! One of my all time favorites is the Benefit Watt's Up cream stick. This is a beautiful color and gives your skin a healthy and natural glow. I apply this on the top of my cheek bones, down the bridge of the nose, and above the cupids bow.

Last but not least, is the eye makeup. I apply my all time favorite mascara, the Roller Lash from Benefit for added length and curl to my lashes. If I want more drama to the eyes, I will apply a small winged liner using Kat Von D Tattoo liner. To top it all off, I apply my perfume, Pink Sugar. I always receive many compliments when wearing this fragrance. I love the delicious, sweet, cotton candy scent. This perfume has become slightly harder to find in recent years. Sephora no longer carries it in store but you can purchase it online. 

For more casual days, I will apply only the Urban Decay concealer and Tarte blush for a quick touch up. Currently, I have been loving this makeup bag by Chanel. It is very feminine and holds all of these products comfortably. I hope you try out some of these items! Make sure to give this post a "like" or comment if you enjoyed it!
