What’s In My Makeup Bag?

First of all, please excuse the awful iPhoneography! I forgot my camera at home, and then light was just not cooperating to get a good iPhone shot of these. I hate shadows and glares! But enough of my struggles haha.

I’ve always liked seeing these types of posts! As a busy college student, I have most of my makeup at home. This is what I carry around with me everyday, for touchups and for when I’m running late and have to do my makeup in the car again haha. Sometimes I’m running so late I don’t actually do my makeup until after my first couple classes…oops! Here are the products I use almost every day.


The Face: Cala Travel Bamboo Brushes and Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Tinted Moisturizer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush, and Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer

One product that I love because it does double duty is this tinted moisturizer! It contains SPF 15, and is completely organic, even the bottle. It provides light coverage and evens out my skin tone. Definitely on of my favorites!


This pressed powder from Rimmel is probably my most repurchased item, and as you can see I need another one soon haha! I reviewed the blush and the bronzer previously here and here, if you’d like to check out what I thought of them! (Spoiler: They’re pretty great.)


The Eyes: Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, Milani Gel Powder in Bella Caffe, and Tarte Gifted Mascara

I’m in love with this mascara, it’s my new top on of all time! Expect a review soon πŸ˜‰ I can’t get enough of Tarte products lately it seems!


The Lips, Etc.:Β Milani Matte Beauty, Pacifica Power of Love, NYX Matte Finish Spray

A theme in this post would have to be the word matte! I have a bit of an obsession with mattifying products lately. This setting spray is seriously amazing! I’ll be posting a full review soon, but let’s just say that I will most definitely be repurchasing it, possibly forever haha. I also always have a couple nude lipsticks in my bag for touchups!


So there you have it! What are your must haves for your everyday makeup bag? Any tips on making iPhones work with you haha? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

Love Kiki

    That blush from Maybelline has such a pretty color! I don’t think they sell them here… I always carry my Maybelline Baby Lips with me, that’s an absolute must! Depending on the day if I carry an extra makeup bag with me!

    Love, Layla Rosita


  3. id love to try the nyx setting spray, heard great things about it πŸ™‚ loved this post, its always interesting to see whats in someones makeup bag haha πŸ™‚ have a lovely weekend x x



  4. Great post! I really liked the Rimmel Powder but the case is such a pain for travel (shown esp by the cracks in the plastic!) If it weren’t for the crappy packaging it would have been another repurchase for me.
    I’ve been wanting to know about how the Tarte mascaras are! So I’ll be patiently waiting for a review- as well do you have one for the tinted moisturizer!?



  5. I love seeing what other people wear on a daily basis! How do you find the NYX matte finish? I cannot for the life of me seem to find a decent matte finisher 😦

    I’m like you where I don’t like to carry too much with me unless I’m going to some event where I know I’ll need touch ups for certain parts of my makeup. But I totally agree with you on the tinted moisturizer front! It’s a great multi-tasking product and is enough coverage for me. I’ve also been getting into lipsticks a lot lately, and I love that color you have pictured!

    nice choices! Personally, I always keep a tube of red lipstick in my bag. It’s the perfect thing to brighten up your face or add a little glam to your look.
