Makeup is such a personal thing- what works for some folks won’t work for others. I have definitely read some RAVE reviews on products that I wound up hating. But today I wanted to share with you some of my top makeup bag favorites, because some of you will find them just as awesome as I do!

First: a quick disclaimer…

I’ll admit it- sometimes I’m not as frugal as I would like to be when it comes to makeup. While I’m out out there buying Chanel foundation or anything, I do experiment quite a bit with brands that are not the absolute cheapest.

But here’s the thing: I’m not going by labels. I don’t run out and buy a particular brand because some influencer says it’s good, or because their name is on it (and you shouldn’t either). I experiment with different things to see what works best for me. If that means it costs a bit more for a premium brand, that’s okay as long as it fits my budget.

What I don’t do is buy a specific brand for the name, or to show it off.

I try not to get caught up in the appeal of the latest and greatest thing, but it’s hard! If I’m happy with how a certain product is working, I won’t buy another version until this one is gone.

I also don’t wear makeup on the daily- I work from home and there’s no one here I need to impress! So if you wear makeup every single day, you might want to invest more, or less depending on your needs and budget.

Oh, and one more thing- you’ll notice I don’t have a favorite eyeshadow. I’m on the struggle bus with eyeshadow lately. I have the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, but while I do use it a lot, it’s not my favorite thing. I’m not sure if the colors just aren’t right for me or what. Just not lovin’ them.

With that said, let’s move on to my favorites from my makeup bag right now!
