FINALLY. A makeup bag I’m proud to share.

This one has been a journey, and when I first revamped my makeup bag I was proud to share it – I did it all at Target with EWG.org. You can read about that first step here. But I’m always taking steps forward and I knew I needed to take some more, that’s when I stopped wanting to answer the DMs about what I put on my face, so you guys pushed me to take the next steps. And this makeup bag below is that next step! I’ve been using it all for 8+ months now, I’ve done some adjusting but it’s now at a point where I LOVE it all. Hope it helps!

What’s in my makeup bag?

MATCHA STICK: I use it under my eyes on on my lips, but for anything dry really! A great all round use stick. Find it at WholemakerCo on Etsy – all packaged in paper with clean ingredients.

CONCEALER: I love THIS one by Elate Cosmetics. Zero waste mostly plastic free packaging and shipping with very clean ingredients. It goes a long way (the sample size lasted 2 months!) I apply it with a small brush and use the Fawn color. Shop it HERE. 

FOUNDATION: This Tint Skin Foundation in Linen (and I’m transitioning to Sand color for summer) by Beautycounter is clean, light but perfect coverage, and I can’t feel it on my skin. A little goes a long way especially with the brush. Maybe everyone uses a brush but I’m new to it and it makes all the difference. Shop it HERE. (It lasts me about 6 months with daily application.)

FOUNDATION BRUSH: Pretty sure I use half as much with this so I highly recommend it for even coverage too. I use Dr Bronners in the palm of my hand to clean it! Shop it HERE. 

BLUSH:  I use THIS one in ‘date‘ colour. Beautycounter does all their powders in in FSC certified sustainable paper with removable mirrors so it can be reused and recycled.

BRONZER: In the summer I switch mostly from using a blush to a bit of a gentle bronzer instead for a more summer look. I’m using THIS one in ‘surf‘ and I really really love it. It just adds nicely to my skin when it’s getting a little bit of natural sun color already. Love. (And I gave you a screen shot for this below to show you the number one reason I signed up as an affiliate or ‘consultant’ – that 25% discount in red makes it work much better for me!)

MASCARA: I. Tried. So. Many. I just couldn’t find a clean one I loved till this. So I LOVE this one and it’s my biggest clean beauty win. I go for the lengthening one. This is my *must try* item if I had to pick one. (lasts about 6 months with daily application.

LIPSTICK: I’m a lipstick lover. I’m a neutral and pretty simple clothes wearer, I don’t wear eye shadow or do fancy eye makeup but I do love lipstick for just making me really feel like I’m drawing a line and moving out of my sweats and homebody usual! I have two colors, a sheer everyday Rose color, and a bold Girls’ Night red that pops for when I need or want that! (Lasts a year+ with application a few times a week.)

Alright! I hope that helps!! Shoot me a DM if you have any questions (I might give you a voice reply – I’m SO happy about that thumb saving instagram feature!!) or leave a comment on my last post.
