{inside my makeup bag}




I thought it would be fun to give you all a peek inside my make-up bag today. As a disclaimer...you're not going to see any fancy make-up counter stuff here. I'm a loyal drugstore product user...both because I'm on a budget, and also because I've found products that I love and I stick with.

To be honest, even if I had a larger budget for beauty items, I would still shop at the drugstore because I'm frugal like that. :)

So here are my favorite beauty items...


1. Cover Girl CG Smoothers tinted moisture

I use this instead of foundation and love the tint and coverage it offers. I also use Cover Girl loose powder {not pictured}

2. Cover Girl Invisible cream concealer

3. Cover Girl Natural Lash no color mascara

I have rather unruly eyebrows so this product is a must have for me every day.

4. Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara

LOVE this mascara. It goes on without any clumps and it has a great curved wand that gets every lash. 

5. e.l.f. blush in twinkle pink

e.l.f. cosmetics are really great products for the value. This blush is $3 and the eyeshadow you'll see below was $1 {found it at our Dollar Tree!}

6. Almay Intense eyeshadow trio

I have a lot of eyeshadow kits but this is one of my favorites. The colors are great and isn't the packaging adorable?

7. e.l.f. studio single eyeshadow in coffee bean

I use this rich dark brown as an eyeliner.

8. Wet & Wild Natural Blend Lip Shimmer in cocoa

This lip balm was $2 and is a really perfect shade for fall.

9. Bath and Body Works mentha lip shine

I usually only apply lip color in the morning before work, and use this stuff throughout the rest of the day. It has a slight pink tint and a little bit of shine.

So there you have it! My make-up essentials. I'm basically a walking ad for Cover Girl. :)

What are your makeup staples? Do you splurge at the make-up counter or rely on drugstore buys?

I love seeing what products others use. You're skin and makeup always looks so pretty. I love that eyeshadow!

I use a mix of drug store plus beauty counter products. I have acne prone/acne scarred skin so I do splurge on a quality oil-free foundation.

I have tricky skin so I use Merle Norman and I love it! It is expensive, but it lasts me 6 months :) I do use covergirl blush, eye shadow, and mascara. My lipstick/gloss, is usually avon. My husband's aunt sells it so I usually get it when it's 99 cents.
Your skin is always glowing. I have so many blemishes I have to have more coverage.
