What’s In My Make-up Bag?

I posted this photo in Instagram, Facebook & Twitter when I was about to do my make-up during the wedding of my friend last week end.11702740_923434971061982_3519716241424788059_nI was so proud of myself that I was able to arrange it on my own without Rochelle. When I am at home Rochelle sets it up for me.

My friend Emily saw it in Instagram and requested me if I can blog what make-up I usually bring when I travel. So, here it is Em.

What’s in my make-up bag?

When I pack I normally bring with me 3 toiletry bags.

1. my skin care (moisturizer, toner, make-up remover, etc.)

2. my body care (lotion, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.)

3. my make-up

Since this post is about my make-up bag, let’s focus on that bag.

Normally, when I travel whether it is a short haul or a long haul I only bring the most basic. An eye shadow stick, eye liner, mascara, foundation, eyebrow pencil and a blush. And if I want more I just buy. A legit excuse for me to go shopping.

My trip over the week end was different. I had an event (I normally do my own hair and make-up). So, that means I have to bring my entire make-up closet.

The wedding was in the beach so I wanted to look like a golden bronze goddess.

Since I already have an idea on what look I like, I pared down the make-up that I will bring with me. It made my packing easy.

I only brought with me 1 carry on and 1 tote.11539733_925554944183318_4980283923899986138_nInside my carry on is my make-up bag. I am very careful with my make-up every time I travel ’cause I am scared of any breakage. So, I did not check in my carry on. I hand carried both bags with me.

Usually I just use make-up pouches. But like I said this trip is different. I am bringing more than I normally do, so, I used a big and sturdy bag.

My Chanel make-up bag.IMG_5677I rarely use this when I travel ’cause it eats up a lot of space. But this time I had no choice. Not unless if I risk breakage or my loose powder scattering all over my luggage. I did not want any of that. So, I was forced to bring this gigantic make-up bag.

Here’s what it looks like insideIMG_5678For an in depth view of what’s inside my make-up bag, here it is:

1. T. Le Clerc Poudre Ensoleillèe in the shade Sun PowderIMG_5685I picked this up just so recently and this has become my favorite bronzer. This is not powdery. In fact it feels creamy and is finely milled. This is a matte bronzer.

2. Chanel Poudre Librè Blanchissante Lumière Rosèe in the shade 20 Opaline.IMG_5686I brought this with me since this is a brightening powder. When you apply this your face will glow. I used this after I contour and after putting on my blush.

3. The Balm Mary-Lou ManizerCollage (1)This is the best highlighter. This one and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade Champagne Pop. These are the best highlighters you can find in the market today.

4. Smashbox Contour PaletteIMG_5691I usually contour my face. And since this is the smallest contour palette I have, this was the best choice. Aside from this is one of my favorite contour palettes.

5. Perricone MD No Bronzer BronzerIMG_5714I brought with me a powder bronzer and a liquid bronzer. What I did is I used this Perricone MD first and to set it I used the  powder bronzer, the T. Le Clerc. And It came out so nice!

6. Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Fini Naturel in the shade 20 ClairIMG_5693This is a translucent loose powder. I use this for setting my foundation and my under eye concealer.

7. Tarte Amazonian Clay full coverage foundation and Stila HD Bronzing Beauty BalmIMG_5695What I did was I mixed the Tarte foundation with the Stila Bronzing Balm for more bronzing effect.

8. The Balm Instain long wearing blushCollage (2)I chose this among all my blushes because this is long wearing. And it is waterproof. True enough I never did any touch up all through out the night even I was already sweating profusely the whole night.

9. Bobbi Brown Warm Glow Eye PaletteCollage2 reasons why I chose this palette. 1. I love all the shades. It fits the look I want and 2. it is compact.

10. L’Oreal Miss Manga MascaraIMG_5700One of my favorite mascaras. This is lengthening and volumizing.

11. The Balm Overshadow SexpotsIMG_5716I decided to bring this just in case I will need more shimmer. But I ended up not using it.

12. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer NC20IMG_5718This is what I used for brightening under my eyes.

13. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer PotionIMG_5721This is very important to make your eye make-up last long and to avoid any crease.

14. Chanel Les Beiges Harmoniè Poudres Belle Mine in the shade  Marinière No.2Collage (3)I used this as a bronzer/blush.

15. Chanel Lumière D ÈtèCollage (4)This is an illuminating powder. I was glowing the whole night.

16. Chanel Stylo Eye shadow in the shade 127 Laurier Rose and Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour  in the shade CopperIMG_5724For my on the go make-up. I use this when I am in a hurry and when I am pressured with time.

17. Ètude House Play Lip Pencil in the shade #32, YSL Rouge Voluptè & Chanel Rouge Coco BaumeIMG_5726I brought my favorite nude pink lipstick and my favorite lip pencil.

18. Dolly Wink False Eye Lashes #15 Pure Girl and Duo AdhesiveIMG_5729I picked this up in Sasa when I was in Hongkong last April. My friend Roxanne was the one who suggested this to me. Actually, there is Dolly Wink here in Manila. It is available in Watson’s. When I wear falsies I don’t use a full strip. I like to wear half only in the outer part of my eyes.

I placed my make-up brushes in a separate pouch. IMG_5680Vinny gave this to me a few years ago. It is from Muji. I like it ’cause it is see thru.

So, there you are!
