Janelle In Real Life: makeup bag...come see what's inside!


makeup bag...come see what's inside!

Hey friends! I decided to show you all a little peek into my makeup bag. Some things I swear by and others I'm just fine with, but they're not amaaaazing or anything. I'll fill you in on all of my faves though!

I love the concealer for the price... it does it's job and is one of the cheapest out there! 
The strobe liquid is an amazing primer and adds a nice glow to your skin. A little pricey, but it lasts forever!
I've listed 3 different foundations and that's because I'm still working on finding my favorite. The photo ready foundation is just ok. The bare minerals powder has been fine but it dries out my skin a little. And the double wear foundation is AMAZING! It definitely on the expensive side, but I only use it on occasion. It it's heavier coverage so not an everyday foundation, but it works very well!

These all work just fine... I'm not in love with any of them but they seem to do a pretty good job! The blush is a darker color and not really a rosey pink, but I really do like the color. The mineral veil is a great finishing powder and I actually find myself using it a lot.

I've actually been trying to grow out my eyebrows for the past couple weeks because I felt like I was falling victim to over plucking. The sculpting gel definitely helps me to tame them and give them the shape I want! The pencil is great because it's thin and makes filling in my brows look more natural.

Love the eyelash curler which I use most days because my eyelashes are like...super straight.
I absolutely love this mascara... I HATE clumpyness and just like my lashes to look long and not overdone. I've tried all kinds of mascaras and this one is my favorite for a nice natural look.
This eyeliner is pretty great, and not expensive at all! I use a dark brown rather than black because it makes my eyes look less harsh.
As you can tell I have a lot of bare minerals products... these were because of a 5 for $20 deal they were having. The eyeshadow is nice... I hardly ever wear eyeshadow so I like that it's pretty sheer. The primer is so amazing... mine is tinted a little and I would recommend getting a non tinted one. It keeps my liner & shadow from creasing and looking weird.

Lip colors!! Love the mac ones... I wear viva glam V as an everyday color and viva glam I is the one you see when I have a bold red lip. The others are all nice too! I'm a fan of revlon's lustrous lipstick... the one I have is a darker color like what I'm wearing here.

I'm no makeup expert but I hope you found some useful info here! I love reading about what makeup people use because I feel like someone has always found a perfect product or two.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

  1. I'm a big bareMinerals fan. That all I wear. I haven't try out the eyeshadow primer. So going to have to check that out. I also like the press eyeshadow better then the loss powder ones.
