What's In My Makeup Bag: Beauty Blogger Rachel

When asked the question “What’s in your make-up bag?,” it doesn't take me long to respond. Why? Because once you've nailed down your must-have go-to products, you actually don't need to keep that many on hand. Quality over quanitity! That's why I’m going to explain my makeup routine and show you the products I use to keep it simple and pretty; these products could be just what you need to perfect your own beauty regimen.

First things first, I start off with a simple powder from CoverGirl.  I like CoverGirl TruBlend Minerals. It helps to even out my skin and hides any blemishes there may be. If I have a trouble spot, I’ll use a dab of concealer on anything I want to hide. Then, I follow with my normal powder, using circular motions while applying.

On the days when I choose to wear eyeshadow (which are rare), I have two palettes I usually like.  For a very casual look, I’ll use Almay’s Intense I-Color Trio for brown eyes. I usually apply the pink on the lid, brown in the creases, and the tan up top.  I like the way these colors work together to complement my eye color and make me appear more awake.  At night, I prefer to use CoverGirl’s Exact Eyelights Eye Brightening Shadow.  I use the gold for a fun look, and the gray and black when I’m going for a smoky eye. Again, I usually use the tan to lighten up top.

I switch my mascara every two months or so since it runs out (and can grow bacteria after a couple of months -- ew), but right now I'm using CoverGirl’s Flamed Out Curling Mascara.  I usually use mascara every day, but apply more when I’m going out. I like the way with mascara curls my eyelashes as it lengthens them. Less clump, more curl!

To complete my look, I applyL’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Le Balm in Tender Mauve.  I like how this subtle color is a mixture between lipstick and lipgloss. Depending on my look for a night out, though, I’ll apply a darker shade on my lips. It's all about the whole ensemble!
