What’s in my current everyday makeup bag

What’s in my current everyday makeup bag

Everytime I have to travel somewhere within the country for a few days and pack my makeup bag for the same I’m in a dilemma. I mean I can carry more than I can during an international travel since there’s no weight restrictions however I still don’t want to be carrying half my stash so a tough decision has to be made. This is when I realized that I always reach out for my everyday favorites. These are the ones I use a lot during that time period. The makeup I can’t live without.
Since I just got back from my staycation this weekend I thought I’ll put together this post with what makeup I carried with me.
These are my everyday absolute favorites that I reach out for every time I need to do my makeup.

Huda Beauty Palette
I genuinely love and use this palette a lot. The colors are warm toned and suit my style. However what I love most about it is that it has everything you need for an eye look in one palette. I could make many looks using just the shades in this one palette and that’s ideal while traveling. You can read my full review of this palette HERE. Also I wanted some sparkly eyes during the holidays so I chose this one instead of my all time too faced natural matte palette which is smaller in size and travel friendly too.

Chanel foundation
This is my go-to everyday foundation. Given that I don’t wear foundation everyday or any day I don’t have to, this is the one I reach out for when I just want a light base to do my makeup on. It’s super light-weight and gives a sheen light coverage that can be built up on which I hardly ever do.

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pure Primer
This again is one of my all time favorites. I don’t like wearing makeup without it because it lets me deal with less foundation and a flawless finish. Link to my detailed review of this primer HERE.

Bobbi Brown Brow Gel
Just to keep those hairs in place so I don’t have an ugly brow.

Nyx ‘The Curved’ Eyeliner
I am felt liner kinda girl and this one is a hit with me. I always reach out for this Nyx liner to do my wing. Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy.

Beauty Blender
I legit have no idea how to do my makeup without this beauty. You can always read my rave on it HERE.

Champagne Pop by Becca Cosmetics
I joined the bandwagon late on this Becca x Jaclyn Hill Collab and I am addicted now. The glow is real and my current favorite for sure. This girl is all about the glitter and glow! 🤗

Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliner in ‘Stingray’
I picked this up during my little adventure at Boots. This one is my trustworthy waterline companion for a long summer day. We good like that! 😛

MAC Fix+
My dry skin issues are dealt with spritz of mac fix++. I love this one to the moon and back. Cannot imagine life without.

These are some of my current favorites? What are yours?

Current Favorites| August & September

Current Favorites| August & September

To start off if you’re wondering why I don’t have a favorites post for May, June or July let me explain. So I got engaged in mid-may, hosted my art exhibition two weeks later and then got married over the first two weeks in August(yes it took me two weeks to do that; I’m asian) while going mad trying to plan my perfect wedding added to that a month of fasting. The only skin care I did was to keep my skin from becoming too dry and I almost never used makeup over this time just to make sure I had fresh skin on my big day. Therefore, even if I wanted I wouldn’t have much to speak of in a favorites post in terms of makeup or skin care. And honestly, I was soo busy with all the planning, redoing my bedroom and just going crazy with anxiety that I never could take a breather and pen down my thoughts as much as I wanted to.

Anyways now being a new bride, I do my makeup so often enough to make-up for all these months so here’s a list of things I’ve been obsessing over lately.

J’adore by Christian Diorimg_1331

I’m obsessed about perfumes and smelling good for the longest time ever. Its one of those things I panic over. I told you guys about my Top 4 all time favorites fragrances. Currently I’ve been obsessed over this one and I am loving it! 😉

Infamous by Marc Jacobs

My current go-to lipstick. I always carry it with me and its been a life saver-stopping-me-from-looking-dead many times kinda fantastic.

Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation by Bobbi Brown

I am not one for heavy foundation on my skin but this one really helps me in coverage and a clean base whenever I need it. I combine it with another foundation while using,keeping it concentrated only to the problem areas.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Let me be honest and confess it took me almost 1.5 years since I got it to understand the hype about this one. Initially I wasn’t just feeling it. I always thought it wasn’t buttery enough or there just too much fall out and the hype was for no reason but then I really don’t know what changed but I’m currently so obsessed with it. 😉

Punch Drunk by Smashboximg_1334

I always believe that you need one lipstick with a popping color for emergencies. You never know when you need one. Currently this has been mine. It isn’t the best I’ve used but I have really been using it a lot so it had to make the list.

L.A. Splash Glitter Linerimg_1338

I love love love this one. I really wish I had grabbed a few more colors. This can really save the day and I have quite a few days that need saving.

That was my list of current favorites. What has been yours? Share in a comment below. 😀
