What's in her Make Up Bag?

Hi everyone! This is Livia's younger sister, Shannon. My big sister was kind enough to let me guest on her blog. So I decided to show you my personal little beauty pouch. Let's get started.

(Top to Bottom, Left to Right)

Avene Compact in Beige, MAC Lightful Foundation Compact
MAC True Romantic blush, MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation
MAC Select Moisturecover Concealer, Revlon Colorstay Quad in Attitude
MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Maybelline The Magnum Volume Express mascara, MAC 182 Brush
Vaseline Lip Therapy with Cocoa Butter, LA Girl Mark My Eyes bold eyeliner
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic
Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner in Black, Etude House Easy Brow Pencil

Among the products above, these are the ones I use everyday:

My Everyday Look: 

The first thing I put on is the MAC Select Moisturecover concealer. This is probably the most important product to me at the moment because I can get some really terrible eye bags. Thank you, college. MAC concealers never disappoint; they cover up really well and aren't cakey. Next, I sweep the MAC Lightful powder foundation on my face with a MAC 182 brush. The "marine-bright" formula that this foundation contains makes my face lighten and glow. 

When I have the time, I put on the bare minimum of eye make up. The Etude House eyebrow pencil (which is not in this photo but in the previous one, I apologize) is very easy to apply and glides on my eyebrows really well. The Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner has a very thin felt tip - applying liquid eyeliner has never been easier with this product. Then I coat my eyelashes with Maybelline Magnum Volume Express mascara and curl it with my Shu Uemura eyelash curler. This mascara is probably the newest to my make up bag, and I am very happy with it. It really brings a ton of volume to my lashes, but the down side is it tends to form clumps. 

MAC True Romantic is very close to my natural blush color, which makes it perfect for my every day au naturale look. To complete my look, I dab the Revlon Romantic Just Bitten balm stain on my lips. I have a tan complexion (MAC NC35), so reds and other darker lip colors look better on me than lighter shades. And then I top it off with my [baby] Vaseline lip therapy. The cocoa butter scent (which I absolutely love!) makes me forget that I'm straight up putting petroleum jelly on my lips. As for the rest of the products, I only use them occasionally. But they're in my pouch for emergency make-over purposes.

So there you have it, my personal beauty necessities. I hope this gives you a little insight on these products and let me know if you plan to get them or already have them. 

Thanks for reading!
