What's In My Makeup Bag


I’ve done a beauty products post before, but I thought I would concentrate this time on what will (most likely) be in my makeup bag the day of the wedding. Some products are the same as the last post, some are new!

I will be doing my own makeup on my wedding day. I’m very minimal when it comes to makeup - I don’t like feeling over-done. And I don’t want that to be any different for my wedding. It may be a big day, But I still want to look like me, after all. So here we go……


I go through all the basic steps for my face- moisturizer, primer, foundation, coverup, highlighter/blush. But for my eyes, I keep it even simpler. I don’t like eyeshadow. I like to keep it at just eyeliner and mascara. I’ve tried all kinds of eyeliner - pencil, liquid, etc. But honestly, I’ve found I much prefer just some black eyeshadow and a thin (damp) brush. I feel I have more control. 

And then, of course, I finish off with my lips. I have extremely dry, peeling lips. All.The.Time. So I like a good lip scrub. I scrub, immediately put on a moisturizer, and then immediately put on lipstick. It’s the only way, for me, to wear lipstick and actually have my lips look normal.
