What’s in my makeup bag: December



What’s in my makeup bag: December

From my favorite foundation, to two palettes I can’t  get enough of at the moment, today I’m giving you a sneak peak into my December makeup bag.

For foundation, I’ve been reaching for Chanel’s Vitalumiére Aqua. As much as I like full-coverage foundations, I don’t tend to use too often during colder months. Vitalumiére Aqua is lightweight and works nicely with drier skin types. The finish is also very natural-looking. For the base, I’ve also been loving Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer– I mix it up with a tinted moisturizer for a nice coverage and light feel.


I’ve been absolutely obsessed with these two palettes: Hourglass Ambient Lighting the Edit palette and Tarte Tartelette 2 in Bloom (review and swatches here and here). I use both of them on daily basis. Even though I think that the Edit palette is overpriced, I’m still very happy I got it. Another powder product I can’t live without is Make Up For Ever’s Pro Finish powder foundation. If you have oily skin, you’d love this; I use it both to set my foundation and as a foundation, but only when my skin is “feeling” oily. One thing that never changes, regardless of season, is my choice of concealer: MAC Pro Long Wear in NC15.

I also finally got my hands on ABV’s Brow Pomade in Chocolate and it’s already my favorite brow product. You get A LOT of product in this little pot and I use the tiniest amount since I love natural-looking brows and really love how long-lasting it is. It’s very easy to overdo it when it comes to brow pomades and you can easily go from natural to very intense and “fake” looking eyebrows, so less is definitely more when it comes to these products.


I recently told you all about my new skincare routine right here, but there are two other product that I didn’t include in that post: eye cream and lip balm. When it comes to lip balms, I honestly have a ton of them and usually just use whatever I have laying around. Two of my favorite eye creams at the moment are: Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Eye Cream and Kiehl’s Creamy  Eye Treatment with Avocado.

I already told you about some of my favorite December lipsticks right here, and right now I rotate between a few of them. Because I use a lot of dark lip products at the moment, and those tend to feather out, I love combining them with Make Up For Ever Lip Liner Perfector– it’s clear and goes with every lipstick color.

I’m also crazy about matte nails right now (which is pretty much always the case during this time of year ;) ) one of my favorite matte top coats is Chanel’s Long-Wear Matte Effect. And last, but certainly not last my favorite mascara, evaaahhh: Dior’s Diorshow Iconic mascara.


What’s in your makeup bag this month?

    Your makeup bag is definitely makeup GOALS, so many great products inside. I have been eyeing up the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer for such a long time, definitely need to pop in store and try it out soon x

      Aww haha thanks Alina! I love the Skin Enhancer, although the shade I picked is a bit dark, so I like mixing it with one of my tinted moisturizers

    I need the new Tarte palette, it has such pretty shades. The Dior mascara is one of my favorites, I love it. In my makeup bag I must always carry blotting papers and lip balm, they’re needed everyday.

    In love with so many of the products you’ve mentioned, I was actually looking at the Hourglass palette in store today and every time I do I get caught in a “Should I buy it?” moment. I don’t think I need it but the packaging is just so darn nice it tempts me!

    I wish I had the money for that Hourglass palette. So envious. Right now I am rocking my newest favorite highlighter – Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Hermosa Rose. I also am loving NYX Licorice lipstick and my favorite classic red – MAC Viva Glam I.
