whats in your makeup bag: danger de lux

I have a fun new series for all you Kittens- whats in your makeup bag?! Well, it is exactly what it sounds like, featuring the gals from Rowena, fellow bloggers, and, fingers crossed, some of your favorite pin-ups.

To start things off, I’m going to share my makeup bag and my most favorite products. I have recently switched out a few products and am working on switching out more, as I am trying my darnedest to only use cruelty free products.

This is me in my every day makeup, with my best friend, Cherry ( she doesn’t need any makeup, she’s a natural beauty)

And here is what is in my makeup bag

MAKEUP KIT 010Makeup Bag by Fluff

Too Faced Chocolate Bar eye shadow palette

Sephora In the Heat Moonshadow baked palette,

Makeup Forever Brow Seal

Anastasia Eye Brow Pencil and Brow Powder Duo in Auburn

Gosh Velvet Touch Eyeliner in Black Ink

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper

Sephora Illuminator in Light Beam

Bare Essentials Foundation

Eco Tools Kabuki Brush

lipstick 001And my favorite red lipsticks

Mac Ruby Woo

Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour Lipstick in Continuous Cranberry

Beseme in Red Velvet

Makeup Forever Aqua Lipliner in 8C

These are all the products I use on a daily basis, as well as if I do a photo shoot ( I just spend a lot more time and detail on my makeup if it is for something other than every day). I use two eyeliners to do my wing tip- the gosh pencil for across my lid, and the Kat Von D liquid liner for the ‘flick’; I’ve found this works best for me to get the look I like. I usually use a variety of shades of brown, as I find brown goes best with my skin tone, eyes, and hair colour. I didn’t show a mascara as I don’t have a favorite- I often use something from Maybelline, or try something new from Sephora when I run out of what I am using. Maybe if you have a favorite mascara, you can leave it in the comments for me to try out. I just switched my eyebrow products from MAC to Anastasia, as MAC now tests on animals, which makes me sad, but Anastasia is cruelty free. I also use a bronzer every day, because I love how it looks with my freckles – I didnt show it, because I need a new one right now, but I usually use one from Rimmel; you have to use caution with bronzer though, as its not for everyone.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what is in my makeup bag and enjoy the rest to come!

  1. My fave mascara is a little expensive, but really worth every penny! I adore Benefit’s They’re Real! It is amazing for how it makes my lashes look like falsies when they aren’t. It runs $26 at Shoppers drug mart or sephora. And as far as I’m aware they are cruelty free! Also if you’ve never used an eye shadow primer I highly suggest trying one. It makes my make up last for 12+ hours without ever creasing or wiping off. It also water proofs the make up and makes colours more vibrant.

    • awesome thanks for the tips Hilary! I have tried Benefit’s They’re Real, which I didnt mind. I often contemplated a eyeshadow primer…maybe Ill grab one next time i go to Sephora 😉
