That’s my bag, baby!

Check it out, guys! Austin Powers joke! BA-BAM! COMEDY.

So, Jason got me a new makeup bag for my birthday, and I’m doing the big swap/clean right now. I thought I’d run down a list of the things I always have in my makeup bag for you guys. It’s going to be a long list.

makeup bag finished

TA-DAA!! The finished product!

I’m super stoked because my new makeup bag has an inner zipper pouch, so I can throw all my lip and eye pencils in there and cut out the possibility of a loose lid coming off and smearing color all over everything. This is why I had to wipe EVERYTHING down before it went into the new bag, it was all spotted with liner! Makeup wise, there are few things more frustrating than doing your makeup without realizing you have greasy, black pencil all over your hands. You learn about that mess the hard way when you go to make a tiny adjustment with your finger, and put a black smudge on the center of your perfectly contoured and powdered nose.

These are my ride or die soldiers right HEAH. I use this stuff all the time, it all travels with me, I take the contents of this bag VERY SERIOUSLY. Some of it is always in there, some of it gets cycled out, but the list mostly stays the same. If anything, it just grows. I keep having to buy bigger and bigger bags. I imagine once I get my acrylic drawers, I’ll pare the bag down a little more. But, until then, ALL HAIL MY BAG OF TRICKS.

I hope this peek into my makeup bag is fun for you guys! If anyone has any questions about how I use any of this stuff, or if you want to see swatches of anything in particular, let me know!

    Okay, so I’m guessing the fact that all three Naked palettes get to live in this bag mean you don’t regret buying them! I have the original Naked, and I’ve been debating getting the Naked 2 or Naked Basics, but I’m wondering how useful it’ll be to have all three. Thoughts? Plus, I keep hearing rumors that the Naked 3 is going to be released right before Christmas…supposedly Sephora employees are confirming this, so that throws off my planning even more! And I just picked up the Vice 2, so I’m really trying to behave myself now.

    Also, I’m a jealous girl right now over those UD Lipsticks! I managed to snag 69, Catfight, and Anarchy minis, but I want them all. Especially Naked. I would pay crazy money if UD released minis of the entire collection. There is actually a new Ulta opening in my town this weekend, and the first 100 people there each day get a gift card for up to $100…I’m gonna hit it up tomorrow and try to bribe the girl handing them out to hook me up with a good one.

      Oooooohhh!! GET IT GURL!!

      I love all of my Naked palettes, and if they do make a third one, I’ll probably buy that one too! I use all of them together nearly every time I do my makeup, even if I’m doing color. I skipped Vice because I have a ton of those Book of Shadows palettes, and after so many cycles, they start to become redundant. You know? Your comment is actually the first I’ve heard of the possibility of a third Naked palette. The internet doesn’t seem to know much either, so I’m verrrrry intrigued!

      I only have one of the new UD lipsticks, and I really want to replace the old ones with the new ones. The packaging on their old lipsticks is super annoying, and they used to have this “creme brûlée” scent that was off putting to a lot of people. I didn’t love it, but whatever. The new lipsticks are so much better. I’d buy minis of the entire collection too. I tried to win the full set of their new lipsticks all over the internet when they first came out, but, no luck! I should just suck it up and replace them. Especially the really old ones. I think I’ve had one of those lipsticks for like, 5 years. I think that’s wrong. Hahahaha

        Okay, here’s where I get all my Naked 3 rumor mongering from:

        It’s Reddit, so I try to take it with a grain of salt…but I’m so excited at the prospect. I’ll probably wait on getting another until after 12/22 just to be safe. 🙂

        I absolutely agree with you on the old UD lipstick packaging. I love a good goth vibe as much as the next gal, but they took it a bit too far. The new packaging is sexy as hell! I actually wrote UD a letter begging them for a sampler, so we’ll see in a few months if they listen to me. 🙂
