What’s in My Makeup Bag

Today, I’m going to show you what I have in my makeup bag, but only the makeup I use for my everyday makeup look. I’ll show you the full makeup look in the next blog post.

So let’s start.
Now, when you see what’s in it, follow the numbers in the spiral way. Check the list below to see the details about each product and my opinion about them:

1. BH Cosmetics 10 Pieces Eco Brush Set & UBU No. 36 Brush

These BH brushes, I got at the Croatian site for makeup PinkPanda. If you’re from my country, I recommend getting some makeup or brushes from that site. There are mostly affordable items. However, I’m not in love with these brushes, I’ve had better ones. I only use the one for foundation and the one for blush if I wear one (which is rarely).
The UBU brush, I use often for contouring.

2.  Revolution Highlighter Golden Lights

I really like this highlighter. It doesn’t make your cheeks too shiny, so it doesn’t look fake. It’s suited for a more natural look than that. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really last for 24 hours, but it can give a good 2-3 hours of shine.

3. Ziaja Natural Olive Cream for Intensely Nourishing Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Not really makeup, but a beauty essential everybody needs to own – a moisturizer. I can’t imagine applying makeup without one, it would be wrong. If you have dry skin like I do, I highly recommend you to get this one. As the title of the product says, it is indeed, intensely nourishing, so you must have it.

4. L.O.V.  Make-Up Colour and Care Lipstick Love Potion No. 930

This lipstick is a true matte one! It lasts up to four hours, if not more and I’m absolutely in love with it. It has a pinky tone and not the lightest shade, but those are the best, anyways.

5. Maybelline New York Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow 65 Pink Gold

I’m showing you two photos so you can see what it looks like inside. It’s a really good eyeshadow in a gel. It has sparkles, but it’s not too sparkly and the shade is pink bronze. I put just a little bit of it to add some pink tone to my daily eyeshadow look which you’ll see tomorrow here on my blog.

6. Labello Sun Protect SPF30 Lip Balm

This lip balm doesn’t give the best moisturization, but it gives a SPF30 protection which is super important especially now during the summer season. I wear it daily and apply it before a lipstick or a lipgloss.

7. S.he Stylezone Eyebrow Pencil 002

To me, an eyebrow pencil means nothing if you can’t do your eyebrows right. However, there should be an eyebrow pencil with good color shade and lasting and this She stylezone really does that. The pen that is used doesn’t matter, the finished picture does. I just tried to sound intellectual, lol.

8. A ruler

You gotta sharpen the pens somehow. That’s what a regular ruler is good for!

9. Catrice Cosmetics Glam & Doll Volume Mascara

This mascara is a good one. Usual mascaras make your eyelashes either too sticky or too thin. This one has a perfect balance. It doesn’t create the biggest volume, but it makes your eyelashes pop and at the end of the day, that’s what matters.

10. A regular eyelash curler

An eyelash curler is a daily must for me. My lashes are not too prominent, so with this, I get the right volume I need. You should use it, too. It makes your eyes look so much better!

11. Catrice Cosmetics Prime & Fine Makeup Transformer Drops Darkening

I love this darkening for contour. The most important thing when it comes to contouring is that the contour color doesn’t change to orange after you blend it. That goes especially to those with paler face colors. This Catrice contour darkening does not do it and that is why I’m a fan. It’s not gonna give a hugely visible contour, but for a daily makeup, that’s exactly what you need.

12. Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer 12HR Waterproof 010 Porcelain

This concealer gives me a nice non-shimmery highlight as well. It’s simple, pale and easy to apply. I love it.

13. Deborah Milano Soft Smokey-Eye Eyeshadow Palette

Out of the five shades of this smokey-eye palette, I only use the white and dark brown one. The grey-black one is too dark and those other two golden ones are too warm for my taste. Since I have blue eyes, I prefer colder eyeshadow shades. But, the palette is gorgeous!

14. Catrice Cosmetics Chocolate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette 010

I’ve had this one for a while now.

The first in the line of the shades was the pure white one, but I literally used all of it. The one I’m using daily now is the fourth one in the row, the shimmery golden brown one. I love this palette and definitely need to buy a new one.

15. Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Eye Contouring Palette 003 Grunge Glamour

For a daily use, I go with the first five shades (white, light beige, darker beige, nude brown and golden shimmery brown). The last three (the pink, blue and navy), I use for special occasions or if I want to do a different makeup look for that day. If you haven’t figured out by now, I do brown smokey eye look every day.

16. Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Toilette

Now you must be wondering why do I have a Dolce & Gabbana in my “makeup” bag. Well, did you know that the way you smell makes you more attractive than the way you look? Or at least that’s why I heard. I love this perfume, it has a fruity smell.

17. Wet N Wild Color Icon Single Glitter E352C Nudecomer

I took this photo the day I got the eyeshadow (that’s why the background is different). I think it was last Thursday (?). Anyway, I didn’t even want to use it because, after the first use, it lost these gorgeous sparkles on top. I love it, it gives a great shine to the smokey eye.

18. Catrice Cosmetics Kohl Kajal 010 Ultra Black

Just as I said for the eyebrow pencil above, which eye pencil I use doesn’t matter to me. The only thing that matters is that it is long enough and black which this eye pencil definitely is.

19. Maybelline Affinitone Hydrating Tone-on-tone Foundation 16 Vanilla Rose

This could easily be my favorite foundation ever. With its vanilla rose shade, it blends perfectly on my skin. It’s not sticky, it’s not oily and the face doesn’t feel heavy after you put it on.

20. Alverde Naturkosmetik Professional Magic Effect Rouge

Although I don’t use blush every single day, I wanted to show you which one I use, when I use it. This one is the liquid one. I bought it a month ago at a drugstore. The reason why I don’t wear blush that often is because my skin has a pink undertone and therefore, I don’t need it. But if I feel like wearing one, I choose this one. It had a shimmery tone to it and sometimes, I use it instead of a highlighter.

21. A blender

I bought it God knows when and frankly, I don’t care. I wash it frequently, just like all other brushes and that is why matters.
We’re done! Thank you for scrolling down so much. I know this post had a lot of photos, but I hope you found it useful and informative. I’d love to know what you think about my everyday makeup products, tell me in the comments below!

  1. Oh wow you hit the pan on that Rimmel palette!I'm glad to see an opinion on the BH Cosmetics brushes because I've been toying with the idea of getting a bunch of them. They are very affordable and that's why I was afraid they might be disappointing. Love!


  2. Love how you can fit all of your makeup into your makeup bag! It's so important to have all the essentials – especially to look fleek and all. I am so in love with your brush container. It is cute! I love how shimmery the eyeshadow gel is. It's so important to bring a sharpener for those moments when the led breaks! Thanks for sharing the goods in your makeup bag!Nancy ♥ exquisitely.me
