What's in my Makeup Bag? (& December Must-Reads)

Question of the month: What make-up do you carry around in your handbag?

It's been a while since my previous "What's in my bag?" post, in which I also gave you a peek into my makeup bag, so it's about time that I shared an update! Here are a few of the items I'm currently toting around (although I do regularly switch out my lip products):

MAC Studio Fix (here), MAC Pressed Blot Powder (here), Lippy Girl Lip Love Lip Conditioning Stick, MAC Lipstick in Shy Girl (here), Za Plumper Lips Lipstick in Sunset Glow, NARS Lipgloss in Giza (here)

Non-makeup items in my makeup bag include hand sanitizer, hand cream, a nail file, hair ties, bobby pins, and Band-Aids. 


P.S. Don't forget to check out the other girls' answers to this question and their must-reads for the month of December (we're a bit late this time due to the busy holiday season).

  1. I love Shy Girl, it's my go-to lip color when I have no clue what to wear! How do you like the blot powder?

  7. How is that lip balm? I'm having the hardest itme finding one that actually moisturises the lips.. And I definitely think I should start carrying around hand sanitizer as well. Such a good idea!

    1. It's pretty good... it reminds me a little of Burt's Bees. For a super moisturizing lip balm you should try Fresh!
