Makeup Bag Essentials

Again I have come up with a nice random post to share with you all! I thought to myself what could I post about next and then it hit me — why not post about what small essentials I carry in my bag? AKA my makeup bag! Now this isn't going to be a long post (compared to my previous post (wow!) which got a lot of love so thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to read it, I really appreciate all your lovely words it means so much to me to keep posting more!) so I hope you enjoy this post and that it might be helpful for you to pick up a few ideas.

I usually carry a small size cross body bag with me nowadays however do occasionally carry a slightly bigger bag — which is just my Givenchy Lucrezia bag, in my opinion is still quite petite but can carry a lot more. So with that being said you can imagine I wouldn't carry too much makeup in my bag. I have this clear BareMinerals pouch I received with a few miniature size products a few years ago and thought it would be perfect to house my makeup in. Not only is the clear makeup bag just gorgeous because it allows you to see what you have inside but it is such a perfect size.

I like to keep products that are easy to use with my fingers (of course sanitised hands)! So I have cream/liquid products as well. If there are any powdered products I use my mini kabuki brush (it is super tiny). I find this is all great for those emergency moments when you're out and about and need to slap on a bit of makeup if you haven't done so already or even those random moments when you unexpectedly sleep over someones house and you have your little emergency kit containing everything you will need, without weighing your bag down!

I was definitely inspired by the pouch in general how it had small travel size makeup in there already so I thought since I have SO many deluxe sample sizes in my collection why not add them in as they are perfect travel sizes. Basically majority of the items in my bag will be deluxe sizes and only few full sizes. I thought I would show you both my Céline Trio and Givenchy Lucrezia bags as they are the two bags I mainly use and usually swap between.

Items that I keep inside my Diptyque pouch are:

MAC lip pencil in Whirl and Boldly Bare
Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown
Diptyque deluxe size body lotion in Eau Rose (I use for hand cream)
Aesōp Resurrection hand sanitiser
NARS lipstick in Pigalle
Malin + Goetz lip balm in Mojito
Jo Malone deluxe size cologne in Blackberry & Bay
Mecca Cosmetica deluxe size To Save Face sunscreen

Items that I keep inside my clear BareMinerals pouch are:

Bobbi Brown deluxe size Smokey Eyes mascara
NARS deluxe size Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Via Veneto
MAC deluxe size Strobe cream (highlighter)
NARS deluxe size Sheer Glow foundation in Fiji Light 5
BareMinerals mini Kabuki brush
Dior pencil sharper
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard Medium 1
Kardashian deluxe size bronzer in Cabana Bronze (I like to use for bronzer as well as eyeshadow)
Daniel Sandler Watercolour Creme-Rouge blusher in Soft Pink
BareMinerals deluxe size Ready foundation powder in Fairly Light
Benefit deluxe size Porefessional primer
Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium Deep
Cotton tips (so handy for fixing eye makeup during the day)!

I will be catching up on blog reading and replying to comments — extremely happy I have a chance to catch up on everything today! Let me know if you have any questions regarding anything in this post, I'd love to know if you have any other tips yourself!
