What's In My Makeup Bag

I am in no way talented when it comes to make up. If I can manage to get my eye liner to look decent and even on both eyes, it's a good day. I do, however, where makeup just about everyday, and if nothing else, I always throw on a little foundation to even out my skin tone. I love to see how other people play with makeup. My one girlfriend, Missy, could definitely be a make up artist! She always plays with such fun and vibrant eye shadows! Me, on the other hand, if I am even wearing eye shadow, the colors are very neutral and subtle. That being said, my makeup bag isn't that exciting, but I am working up to playing with more colors.

On a normal day when I am going to class or work this is what I use:
-Mary KayConcealer in Beige 1
-Mary Kay Medium-Coverage Foundation in Beige 304
-Maybelline Mineral Powder in Light 2
-Tropez Eye Shadow set in Bali Blue. I just use a touch of the pink and the gold to cover my lid.
-NYX Eye Liner in Black 901
And lately, I have been throwing on a bit of Rimmel London Blush in 006 Autumn Catwalk



If I am going out or to a special occasion I will do the same as above, plus:
-Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in Black
-Some of the deeper gold shadows from my Tropez palette
-NYX Lipstick in Snow White or Aerie Lipgloss in Pout or Spice


So there you have it. Pretty minimal and simple, in my opinion. I definitely want to branch out a bit and try using some different eye shadow colors. Maybe will Spring just around the corner I will pick up some fun colors and start experimenting. I have started to do a lot more experiementing when it comes to lip colors. I adore my NYX Snow White Lipstick and definitely want to try out some other fun colors, especially corals. I love how the NYX brand doesn't dry out my lips like other brands tend to. Another brand that I love for lipstick is Maybelline. Their Color Sensational line is very smooth and moisturizing.

What are some of your favorite brands? And what colors are you excited to test out this Spring?
