What's in the Makeup bag?

Hey y'all!  I don't know if you've noticed the Blogher tab at the top of my page lately but it now has Blogher TV installed.  There are a lot of great videos that are played, so if you get the chance you should check them out.  I love the Girls in glasses videos.  I watched one today that inspired this post, the "What's in the Makeup Bag?" video. 

They showed everyone what was in their makeup bags, so I'm going to show you what's in MINE! :)


My makeup is probably not all that impressive to the Makeup Guru's but what can I say?  I'm a stay at home Mom on a budget. ;)  I do love my drugstore brands though. 


This is the stuff that is in regular rotation.  Well, the Sally girl shadows aren't really in regular rotation but they are really pretty and do get worn from time to time.  They hardly wear off at all and are very bright for 99 cent eye shadows.  I mostly wear the neutral colors but I do like to change it up if we're going out.  I pretty much keep is simple though on a day to day basis.   I LOVE these Essence eyeshadows, they are so pretty.  The silver one is called Starlight and it really shimmery and has a little bit of glitter in it.  I wear it with the charcoal color that's in the Elf pallet.  It's sexy! ;)

I love the Avon Smooth Mineral powder foundation, it has great coverage and is really light.  I don't like to feel like I have foundation on and powder foundation is perfect for me.  Lately I've been wearing the Maybelline eyeshadow pallet more than anything.  Then black eyeliner on top and bottom lashes.  I usually wear Rimmel eyeliner, it's AMAZING and stays on all day long and goes on just as smooth as liquid liner.  I'm out right now though so I'm going between the Cover Girl and LA Colors eyeliners.

Now, my mascara.  Maybelline Great Lash is always a good 'go to' mascara but I love the Maybelline Volume Express, and the one I have is waterproof.  I pretty much only wear waterproof during the summer.  It's so hot and humid here, I'll have raccoon eyes 10 minutes after I walk out the door. Yuck!

My new favorite lipgloss is the Revlon Crantilly Lace.  It's a cranberry color with a little gold shimmer.  It's tinted nicely for me and isn't too dark.  I also wear the Baby Lips Peach Kiss a lot, it's kind of a nude, it's really pretty on and moisturizes well and feels good on my lips.

Well, that's what's in my makeup bag!  What's in yours?  If you do a "What's in My Makeup bag?" post let me know so I can check it out :).  XOXO
