At the beginning of the year, I set out to select weekly makeup bags so I'd have an easier time in the mornings putting on makeup. While I haven't been terribly successful with either putting on makeup OR making my weekly selections, I thought I'd try again.
This week's makeup bag is a studded pouch that I purchased this past Spring. I've used it for receipts and other random things, but never thought to use it for makeup until this weekend. I think this is a perfectly "me" alternative to the Whistles pouches that are all the rage among the UK bloggers, and I've filled it with a handful of new-to-me items that I'm looking forward to trying. (Well, a few are newly acquired, while others were long ago purchased and never used... story of my life!)
I'm quite excited to try the Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer that I grabbed as a 100 point perk at Sephora. I did also purchase the liner in a pretty brown shade, but more on that later! Nars Radiant Creamy Foundation is another I'm quite excited to play with, as is the Hourglass Illume Duo in Sunset. I've grabbed some old standbys, Estee Lauder Stay On Shadow Paint in Chained and Fresh Umbrian Clay Concealer, and threw in a mini Laura Mercier lipstick in Duchess Rose that has been hanging around in my collection for ages unused.
Now I hope I manage to use some, really ANY, of these products this week. Wish me luck! :) What products will you be wearing this week? What helps you put makeup on quickly in the morning? I'd love to know!
