Basic things to have in your make up bag!


Hello my lovely blog readers!

Today I have the most useful things beauty post. This is what you should have in your makeup bag. Are you ready? Lets go! These makeup products I have I would called them my essential make up products to have. I have replaced my Benefit BrowZing with my Urban Decay Basics palette because it as everything I need, but since this is just an essential make up products post, I feel that you don’t need to have the Benefit BrowZing. For me, the BrowZing is make lifesaver when I want to have a strong eyebrow game.


Starting with the face, I use the Covergirl tinted moisturizer when I just want to moisturize my face and give a little bit of tint. So I have been using this for a while and I love it. It’s a 9-in-1 Instant Skin Enhancer. It gives a natural looking radiance, its sheer colour, it’s gives your face all day hydration, it improves skin elasticity, it blends effortlessly, its lightweight, it helps skin feel smooth, it covers to help instantly improves skin’s appearance, and it won’t clog any pores. This you can find at the drug store. The Benefit Hello Flawless is a light to medium coverage foundation that is oil free which is perfect for me because I have oily skin. This product works wonders and its amazing as brighting foundation. This you can find at your Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart.



Next is concealer. My erase paste from Benefit is a brighting concealer and I love it. I am pretty much almost done with this product and have decided to try out the Number 1 in Light. But Number 2 works too for me. I got this at Sephora but you can also find this at Shoppers Drug Mart.


To set my make up, I use The Rimmel London Stay Matte press powder on my face. This gives my skin the natural look and work with any face product like foundation, primer, concealer and etc. I got this at Walmart and I believe you can get this at any drugstore that sells Rimmel London products.


Next is Blush and Bronzer. I mean BLUUSH! LOL. I have this dual from Nars. These two are the most best seller blush and bronzer that Nars as made and I love it. Its good to have these two in one because I have so much to carry that it would be annoying to carry the full size of these products. I got this from Sephora near the checkout asle.



Woohoo another Benefit product. You’ll probably see that I love Benefit Cosmetics. Just love it to death. So this is one of their creamless cream shadow and I like to use this as an eye shawdow base. It has a little bit of shimmer but it looks good. I have this in RSVP. Go check out Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart.


Next I have NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk. I got this recently at Target I know you can get this from London Drugs. This product is perfect to use as an eye shadow base or at the tear duct of your eye as a brighter. This product is literally raved about on youtube.


My favourite lipglosses hands down is from Revlon. This lipgloss is moisturizing and it has shimmer. I have so many of theses that is getting ridiculous. The one shown here is just a nude lipgloss that every girl needs in her makeup bag. This is in the colour Snow Pink and you can find this at the drugstores where they sell Revlon products.


Ellen is a covergirl who raved about this product on her show. And I decided to try it out and its amazing. There are two sides to this mascara and trust me it works. I have long eyelashes and this gives me volume and everything. Go get yours at your local drugstores because I’ve tired a lot of mascaras and this works 100%!


I am going to show you two eyeshadow palettes that you should check out. This one from NYC is good. These are one of the individual eyes for brown eyes but it works for everyone. I am a natural girl who loves to keep the natural eye look because I may have crazy outfits going on. So this works! You can get this from the drugstore.

I got this recently and the reason why I didnt put an eyeliner or eyebrow pencil or anything is because this product can be the substitute. This has matte colours and can be used as eyeliner by using Crave to make your eyes look natural. Or You can use Naked 2 or Faint for your eyebrows. The mirror is great too so you don’t need to carry a separate. I know this product maybe expensive but compared to the full size Naked 1, 2, and 3 palette, I’d say this is the most useful palette that Urban decay has developed and I love it. This is totally worth it and I can’t wait to explore the many possible looks I can pull off with this beauty. You can get his from Ulta or Sephora for $34 I believe in Canada.

So that is my essential things to start off your makeup collection. I am aware that I tend to have some high end stuff but at the end of the day, I believe that slurging on your makeup will benefit your skin. And trust me, I don’t wear make up every day of the year so I found these products to work for me. If you have any questions or concerns about the products I have mention above leave a comment in the comment section below.

This is a wrap. I should have a youtube video up about my carry on bag. Later on in the day, so stay tuned. Be sure to check my twitter for links @Brigittemegan and my instagram @brigittemegan. And please follow my tumblr at I do have a pinterest as well if you want to follow that,
