"What's in My Bag?"

Hi girls! It’s been a while since I did my last “What’s in My Bag” post so I thought I’d give you an update! Isn’t it exciting to see what’s really inside a woman’s bag? Especially those who literally carry a LOT of stuff with them everyday *raises hands*

IMG_4623

The bag I use nowadays is a Longchamp Birdcage Le Pliage 2015, it was a gift from my cousin and I love it to bits! I’m a fan of spacious bags because I really carry a lot with me. It’s all about being ready for anything and having the necessary things you need when faced with different situations.

Let’s start:

1. Makeup bag – Normally I’d bring the lipstick I am wearing for the day for touch ups—this is a must, especially when you’re not wearing a long lasting lip color and find yourself having meals throughout the day and ending up with faded lipstick! I also bring a compact powder to get rid of oil throughout the day—I have combination skin and I tend to oil up on my T-zone. It feels icky to have grease on my face, so retouching is a must; especially in between client meetings! When faced with a sudden zit on the face, I make sure I bring a concealer to cover it up!

2. Wet wipes and dry tissue—It’s a must for me to have both! They’re always to the rescue when it comes to messy situations—ever had your food/beverage accidentally spilled all over yourself/your bag? What about an emergency, like attack of allergies that cause the sniffles, or sudden nose bleeding? It would be a horrible situation if you didn’t have wipes and tissues with you, girl! So these are LIFESAVERS!

3. Carefree panty liners—Let’s face it, even when we don’t have our periods, we still worry. This time about everyday wetness. It’s not a comfortable feeling, so it often affects our mood and productivity. This is the reason why I see to it that I bring Carefree panty liners with me every day to ensure that I feel fresh and clean all day. It absorbs my everyday wetness, so I automatically feel #FreshInsideAndOut!

4. Tech stuff – I always bring my phone, and of course vlogging camera to document my everyday life for my YouTube channel, and it would be a horror if I run out of battery so I make sure I bring extras. I also bring my chargers along with my pocket Wi-fi and my powerbank. It’s better to have what you need at the moment you need it the most.Oh and I never forget my taser gun, it’s always better to be safe than sorry!

5. Geek stuff—I am a sucker for writing stuff down. Being a YouTube content creator, ideas randomly pop into your head; and when that happens, I’d rather write it than input it on my phone! I’m old school like that! I tend to forget random ideas because of work stress, so I really need to jot them down. I never forget my planner as well, all my schedules are in here! With a lot of events happening, I find it difficult to remember details, and I always run to my planner to double check.

Throw in the wallet, keys, and mints and I’m ready to go!

Did you have fun snooping inside my bag? Share in the comments what we have in common inside our bags—I’d love to read them!

Wearable Everyday Makeup (+Giveaway!)

elf
Hi girls! Today, I have for you an easy-to-do, wearable makeup look for everyday. I’ve always thought that browns and nude pinks go perfectly together, so for this look we’re using browns for the lids and a beautiful nude pink lip color.

Watch this tutorial on my YouTube channel to see the products in action!

Start off with a clean face, and apply primer. I used the ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer, one of my favorite primers in the market! It leaves the skin instantly matte, velvety, and oh so soft! It blurs out pores (which I have, especially on my cheeks!) and fine lines. Primers ensure that your makeup will stay on ALL day with minimal or no retouching at all. I never miss this step because I have combination skin type.

Next is foundation. I’m using my current fave—the L’Oreal True Match Foundation (with the pump!) This looks like second skin, and it covers up all the imperfections on my skin! Loving it to bits!

If you suffer from ‘darker than usual’ under eye circles, use the L’Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer—it will change your life! It instantly hides darkness and makes you look more awake! Pat and blend away.

ELF has a new product called the Eyebrow Filler and Lifter. I like how I can outline and fill in my brows using the Filler end and also highlight my browbone using the Lifter for a more defined finish! You will also see that the sharpener of this product is PART of the pencil cap—how clever, right?
I usually set my brows with powder after outlining and filling them in, and I used the ELF Eyebrow Kit.

The palette I am using for this look the The Nudes by Maybelline—absolutely everything you will need for either a day time or a night time look.

Pat a rich chocolate brown shade all over the lid area. Use a blending brush and pick up a taupe color to blend harsh edges on the crease area away.  Shade the outer half of your lower lash line using the rich chocolate brown color to balance everything. Lastly, dab on some sparkly brown shadow on the center lids for a more beautiful finish.

Curl your lashes and put on some mascara! I used the Say Eyelash Curler and the L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara.

The lip color I opted to use is the Happy Skin Lip and Cheek Mousse in The Morning After—such a gorgeous color!
Lastly, add some color onto your cheeks. I used NARS Orgasm Blush.

  • Mineral Infused Face Primer
  • Poreless Face Primer
