In My Makeup Bag // Aquaphor & $50 Sephora Gift Card Giveaway

I spend a lot of my time here talking about Bryson and Bella’s favorites, so today is going to be a little different.  I’m going to share some of my favorite makeup picks as part of a Fall into Autumn with Aquaphor beauty campaign.  Read on for your chance at an Aquaphor Prize Pack & a $50 Sephora Gift Card giveaway!

I’ve enjoyed playing with makeup from a young age and over time, I’ve learned a little about what I’m doing, thankfully.  My junior year in high school, I discovered beauty blogs, makeup tutorials, and MAC cosmetics.  I became obsessed and my entire minimum wage grocery store check went straight to MAC some weeks, haha.  I loved experimenting with new colors and looks.  Nowadays, I still love my MAC products, but I am more into natural looks.  My entire makeup routine can be completed within 5 minutes and consists of department store and drug store brands.


In My Makeup Bag – A Few Favorites

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 (Light)
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara
Aquaphor Lip Repair
MAC Fluidline Gel Eyeliner (Dipdown or Blacktrack)
Maybelline Highlighting Concealer (Ivory)
CoverGirl Classic Blush (Rose Silk)
Rimmel Natural Bronzer (Sun Light)
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter (Cherry Tart, not pictured)
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
MAC Eyeshadows

My makeup bag is very basic and that’s exactly how I like it.  I rarely wear foundation, but did recently discover BB cream and I love it.  It has a very lightweight feel and SPF 35 protection.  I cannot stand the cake-y feel of most foundations and I do not need a lot of coverage which is why I had given up on wearing it, but BB cream is the  (Yes, I just said  Another new to me beauty product (not makeup) is Philosophy.  How have I never tried any of their products before!?  I splurged on a big bottle of Philosophy Shampoo, Bath, & Shower Gel and now I feel spoiled.  You can bet I’m totally NOT sharing it with the little ones!

And of course, I can’t leave out Aquaphor.  I keep a tube of Aquaphor Lip Repair in the bathroom at home and in my purse so I’m never without.  I hate chapped lips (who doesn’t, right?) so I make sure to apply it throughout the day, before bed, and if needed, I’ll apply Aquaphor then layer my lipstick on top.
