I think the better question will be “What’s NOT in my makeup bag?” 🙂 Pretty soon I will be going on vacation. Vacation means I will have to do one of things I love, but hate to do – pack. Below are items that I generally will keep in my makeup bag:

Makeup Tools

  • Sephora Brush Set – includes a powder, lip brush, large and small eyeshadow brushes
  • Sonia Kashuk – Large Crease Brush and small shadow brush
  • Bobbi Brown liner brush
  • MAC 217 blending brush


  • Foundation – Shea Moisture Havasu Hazel
  • Concealer – Clinique Deep Honey
  • Blush – Clinique  Mysterious Mocha, MAC Ambering Rose
  • Countour – Cover FX Pressed Powder – N110
  • Eyebrow pencil – MAC stud
  • Gel liner – Bobbi Brown black
  • Eyeliner – Avon black
  • Mascara – Mary Kay Lash Love 


Depending on what I bring to wear, I sometimes bring individual MAC shadows. I don’t wear makeup day in/ day out on vacation; I bring it just in case.

Prep and Removal

  • Clinique 3 step
  • Take the Day off Cleansing milk
  • Makeup remover wipes
