Digging through my Makeup Box.....

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend!!

It's homecoming season for all of you high schoolers , so have fun and be safe & most of all Love your peers. LOVE EACH OTHER!!!

When I think back to my high school years I just remember all of the "gossip" and " clicks" that went along with being a girl. I want to tell all of you... ย love each other. Don't return hate with hate...return hate with Love. Be kind no matter what! Just know that you are BEAUTIFUL in God's eyes-don't listen to what others say. You are a child of God and we are all created unique-there is NOTHING wrong with you.

I want to share with all of you what is in my BEAUTY BOX. My Beauty box is my everyday makeup case that I keep around to use when I get ready for the day. (Just remember....I am a makeup artist... I do not use everything I'm going to mention everyday, these are just the beauty products that I get the MOST use out of at this moment in time. Also, I may not list EVERYTHING, but I will tell you most of the products in here. )

Here are some photos of the Train Case that I call my beauty box.

First off, the box itself is from JAPONESQUE and is a medium train case. Here is the link to it on the Japonesquewebsite: http://www.japonesque.com/catalogue.cfm?fla=productsSplash

I LOVE this as my everyday beauty carrier. I was originally using a MAC makeup ย bag. It was a large size but it just didn't fit everything I wanted in there. I wanted something large enough that COULD fit my makeup brushes as well if I wanted to bring it with me somewhere. It's just nice to have everything in ONE place. I like that I can keep it somewhat organized also.

So first off I'll start with the bottom. I have:

  • MAC studio fix fluid foundation- my staple product.
  • MAC face and body foundation- I use this on my days off of work.. when I want less coverage. OR, I mix a little of this with my studio fix fluid for a little less coverage.
  • 100 % Pure Healthy Skin Foundation- I just started using this...it uses pure ingredients ,smells great and the coverage is amazing!
  • MAC prep and prime transparent powder: this is the perfect translusent loose powder. Soft, and sheer.
  • MAC Charcoal brown eyeshadow: I use this in my eyebrows
  • Benefit' s High Beam: a great cheekbone highlighter !
  • MAC's Lithe pigment- a limited shade that is great for everyday.
  • Bare Essentials BUXOM cream eyeshadow ย in poodle - a great everyday eye color or base.
  • Travel size container of Q-tips!! - for any touch ups.
  • Sigma travel size brushes- 7 brushes come in this case.. they are all fantastic, I put some of my MAC brushes along with them in the bundle so I can have all my "daily use" brushes in one place. ย Here is the link for SIGMA's brushes: http://www.sigmabeauty.com/?Click=202
  • A triangle wedge sponge- for blending and my moisturizer.
  • Environ AVST Gel Moisturizer- I apply this shortly before applying my foundation everyday.
  • AMOR AMOR perfume- my favorite ever!

  • Blinc heated eyelash curler- sometimes I curl my eyelashes- NOT VERY OFTEN.
  • Japonesque clear mascara- for brows.
  • MAC powerpoint liners- Favorites are Engraved, prussian, Navy Blue.
