On my birthday two weeks ago, I went for breakfast with some of my closest friends. After the breakfast, I realised my lipstick had come off and I hadn’t brought anything with me to fix it.
Luckily, one of my friends, Tribella, took out her makeup bag and handed me a lipstick that matched mine. It was like a slow-mo thing, the moment she took the makeup bag out. I had never thought to put all of my makeup into a separate bag. I was used to shoving my makeup into my handbag hastily in the morning, not caring if it smudged or ruined. But in that moment, I looked in awe at that makeup bag.
I commented on it, and how it was a smart idea. And that night at my party, she gave me a makeup bag, pre-filled with makeup. So, this post is about what I put into that bag every day.
Brow Basics Kit by Natio — $15.96 from David Jones
Dramatic Lashes Mascara Black Rose by Natio — $16.95 from Priceline
Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara by Rimmel — $10.58 from ASOS
They’re Real! Push-up Liner by Benefit — $35.00 from Adore Beauty
Red Velvet Velvetine by Lime Crime — $24.00 from Crush Cosmetics
So, there you have it! The above cosmetics get me through anything and everything, no matter the day, event or hour. I carry my makeup bag with me everywhere I go, just in case there’s an unexpected event to go to or if my makeup decides to slide down my face during the warmer months. Enjoy!
