What's in my makeup bag

I am a complete makeup junkie! I LOVE makeup and always have! I remember when I was younger my Mommy would take me to the drugstore every other week and let me choose a new lipgloss and it was the most exciting thing for me! Even now, when I get a new lipgloss, I get all giddy! I actually love doing my makeup in the morning or for a night out (it's my hair that I dread). Take this girl to Sephora and I'm in heaven!!! There are SO many different products out there, so I always love it when Bloggers share their personal favs. I'm a huge fan of MAC (I buy most of my makeup from there), but I also love Smashbox and Clinique. Here are just a few of my absolute, tried and tested favs!

Since I have SO much makeup, this girl needs an old school Caboodles case to hold it all! Yup that's right, Caboodles circa 1994 people!!! Although my makeup "bag" is big, I have major OCD and a phobia of old makeup, so things don't last long in my makeup case. I will only keep mascara for a month or two and same with lipgloss. Eyeshadows, usually only 6 months

I carry this lil guy below to work

My all time fav blush, Dainty by MAC. It's sweet and pink

I also like Dame by MAC blush, it's a little darker for night

I love this foundation from MAC. I'm pale as can be and this colour is awesome. It covers up my wee freckles and gives me a bit of colour

This highlighter from Benefit is the BEST. You put a little dab in the inside corners of your eyes and it brightens your eyes and makes you look more awake! When I'm going out, I also put a bit under my eyebrows

I love this face highlighter, it gives your face a beautiful glow!

Since I am paler than a vampire, it is so hard for me to find a bronzer that isn't too dark...this one from Physicians Formula is perfect for us pale girls!

For a night out, I like Dusk by Smashbox

These next 2 are the BEST mascaras I've tried (and I've tried a LOT!). Extended Play by MAC and Lash Doubling Mascara by Clinique

If you're looking for an inexpensive mascara that you can just get at the drugstore, I like Voluminous Million Lashes by Loreal

Clinique's Bronzed 1 is a great all over powder bronzer

Before I put on foundation, I use Photo Finish by Smashbox, it is an awesome primer!

Too many eyeshadows to take pictures of and too many to name! MAC def has the best eyeshadows. They just last the longest and have the best coverage, they also go on really easily

Don't get me started on my collection of lipgloss. I LOVE lipgloss, I may even be addicted to it...I am a light pink lipgloss gal, but once in awhile I'll do a darker pink gloss or lipstick. My favourite lipgloss is from MAC. I love, love, love their lipglass collections. MAC is my fav for coverage and colours, but I'm always buying different brands when I go to the's a bit of a problem. Here are a few of my favs

MAC Dazzleglass Creamy Pink

Early Bloomer Lipglass by MAC

Fame by Gosh

Blush by Estee Lauder

Nars Turkish Delight

What are some of your tried and true makeup favs??? I'd LOVE to hear!!!
