What's In My Makeup Kit!




Too much?

Not for a beauty addict like me! :) I like to be prepared. Save for liquid foundation and eyeshadow palette (I already keep those in my office drawer), I bring a lot of makeup products with me just in case I need a quick touch up or do my makeup after work for drinks or dinner with friend, boyfriend or an event. I'm glad I have a car with me most times or I'll kill my back and shoulder toting these fancy babies with me all the time.

  1. Majolica Majorca Cream Liner - Accentuate the eyes (especially when I didn't apply eyeshadow) 
  2. K Palette 24H Tattoo Eyeliner - This lasts the whole day and I don't need to prime my lids to use it. (for review, click here)
  3. Majolica Majorca Eyebrow Sword Pencil and Spoolie - To color my brows 
  4. K Palette Tattoo Eyebrow Liner - This lasts the whole day and I can apply this even inside a moving vehicle. Great when I'm in a hurry. (for review, click here)
  5. VMV Tarte a Tan Bronzer - For contouring and for that golden glow.
  6. Benefit Cosmetics Bella Bamba Box 'O Powder Blush - Gives the right amount of color and glow to my cheeks. (for review, click here)
  7. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Sau Paulo - Flattering Pink Lipstick (for review, click here)
  8. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm - Sexy Nude lipstick (for review, click here)
  9. MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo - All-time fave red lipstick (Can't leave home without this) (for review, click here)
  10. Binaca Breath Freshener - Do I really need to expound? :)
  11. KIT Spray with alcohol - To sanitize my hands before doing my makeup (click here to find out more about KIT)
  12. Smashbox Halo Powder - Over-all foundation, can be used wet or dry (FOTD using this powder, click here)
  13. Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Sample - To give shine with the lipstick and lip creams
  14. L'oreal White Perfect Pearl Duo-Tone Whitening Powder Foundation - Highlighter and Undereye Setting Powder (the foundation is too light for my whole face)
  15. Smashbox Photo Ready Concealer - Concealer for the undereye  (FOTD using this powder, click here)
  16. The Body Shop Tea Tree Concealer - Concealer for redness, pimples and blemishes 
  17. Snoe Beauty Beso Lip Balm - Keeps my lips hydrated
  18. Charm Pocket Brush Set - Has every brush I need to create a decent natural makeup look. (for review, click here)
  19. Charm Flat Top Retractable Kabuki - Provides an even coverage when using my foundation   (for review, click here)
  20. J&J Oil Control Film - preps face for retouch (not shown in pictures)

I also keep tissue and wet wipes on the inside pockets of my bag.
See end of this post on where to buy these products.

I know it's a lot and you probably don't need most it. God knows I don't use all of these everyday but I find comfort in the fact that just in case I see an EX, mortal enemy or worst, to meet with an important client, I can easily do my makeup to look presentable! 

Funny because I'm not a fan of retouching! Hehehe!

I'll post soon what should really be in your makeup kit and I promise, it won't contain 20 products! :)
