I believe that there are two sacred things a man must not look into in a woman’s things: a. underwear cabinet and b. makeup bag. Underwear cabinets are pretty self-explanatory since it ruins the sole meaning of “private space”. The make-up bag is another, well for the record what’s the use of looking at this part of the bag anyways? When you ask them to purchase you a concealer, a man has no clue what it is or even what it is for.
But I believe in that every woman should never walk out that door looking as if she just woke up in her bed and didn’t even had the guts to fix herself in the mirror. As Coco Chanel puts it, “I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”
So for your enjoyment, I would like to share to you a couple of things I always bring to fix and spruce myself up to get me through the day! :)
The contents of my make up bag are as follows: Porefessional, Powder Pop, Lip Gloss, They’re Real! Mascara, Laugh with Me Lee Lee Eau de Toilette : Benefit | Baby Lips Lip Balm : Maybelline | Concealer : E.L.F.
I recently purchased this cute make-up bag from Saizen for only Php 88.00. It holds most of my stuff and can fit my bag perfectly. The black cloth makes it look sleek as well as it does not easily get as much dirty unlike my old make-up bags. A tip whenever you would want to buy a make-up bag, try choosing colors that are dark such as black and blue. Another tip is to buy those plastic transparent ones for you to easily find your stuff from the outside. I prefer choosing a black make-up bag just because whenever my blush explodes from the inside it doesn’t look that dirty. Plus its okay to carry around cause people can’t see what’s inside your bag. :)
I’ve had this Benefit Powder Pop for a while and you can tell that I’m already hitting the pan! The thing about this blush is that it contains three colors. The Dandelion (pink) for that rosy flush. You also have a tan color for that au naturel look as well as a dark colored one for contour in the cheeks. I’ve had this I think early last year and this is the first blush I can’t seem to get enough of!
I have to admit I have chappy lips so whenever I can, I don’t leave home without my lip balm. I’ve tried so many and a lot of brands have failed me, and this Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm is a gift from heaven! It hydrates my lips and lasts for a very long time. I top it all off with my Ticket to Glossytown Benefit Lipgloss in Pink color. It’s very small and handy and I got it from a pack of 6.
Another Benefit magic is the Benefit PoreFessional. I used to bring baby powders with me to remove all the oilyness in my face, with this I don’t have to anymore. You just have to squeeze a small amount and place it in your T-zone and voila the shine in your face is gone. What I like about this is that you can place it under and above your make-up. Talk about hassle-free!
Okay if you are wondering if this is a dual purpose make-up, then I have to answer that with a no. This is actually an Elf Under Eye Concealer and Highlighter. The highlighter that used to be connected to it popped out because the packaging was so-so. The cap that holds the two together is very brittle so it cracked while I was opening it up. Overall, the concealer is okay. I like how it can hide my dark eye circles whenever I have sleepless nights and morning wake-up calls.
I like batting my eye lashes and this one is a keeper! The Benefit They’re Real! Mascara does not only thicken the eye lashes it also curls it and makes it longer! I love how it can open my eyes wider and make it look fresh and nice to look at. I’ll never go back with other brands ever again!
Lastly, a girl cannot leave home without putting a bit of fragrance. Before I leave home, I either put on Daisy by Marc Jacobs or Chanel no. 5. Whenever the essence is no longer there, I always have Benefit’s Laugh with Me Lee Lee Eau de Toilette handy! I love how sweet smelling it is. Its perfect for a day out.
So that’s the contents of my make-up bag. I know that it looks like Benefit sponsored my make-up kit but no. Haha! I kidd, I just truly love the Benefit line so much and how it promotes “natural beauty” rather than faking it with deep shades.
So to my make-up kit to yours, til next post!
