I'm using a Marc Jacobs zip top pouch to carry my makeup. I'm not sure where I got this from but I think that it was one of those GWPs when I bought a Japanese fashion magazine. I'm going to talk about what's in the pouch in no particular order.
Maquillage Moisture Finish Powdery UV Foundation, which I usually use together with the Bare Escentuals Max Coverage Concealer Brush. I actually don't use much powder for my normal makeup routine and I rarely use this but like to have it just in case. It's especially useful when I have a cold and am blowing my nose a lot. I can then use the powder foundation to touch up.
I find that after 5 hours or so, the foundation under my eyes can fade away so I like to touch it up with the Canmake Cover & Stretch Concealer, if I'm still out and about, which is probably most of the time.
Blistex Complete Moisture lipbalm. After I eat (which can be often hehe!), I have to touch up my lipstick so this lipbalm goes on first then my lipcolors.
MAC Lustre LIpstick in Sweetie. This is my go to lipstick, which I will use to touch up no matter what color blush I'm using. NARS Lipgloss in Dolce Vita will go over Sweetie if I want to have a glossy finish.
Some bandaids, just in case. Oil blotting tissues for those really humid days when I might get a bit oily. (Red packet) The blue packet is something called "kami sekken", which translated means paper soap. My really dear friend, who is like a sister to me, was surprised when I had never heard of this before. Apparently, many Japanese women carry this around in their purse to use when there's no soap. The sheet looks very similar to an oil blotting sheet. You pull it out with dry fingers/hands and then wet your hands. It will melt and you can lather it up to wash your hands like regular soap. It's quite handy.
A small hair jaw clip in case I need to pull my hair back.
False eyelash glue and a mini nail file. No, I don't normally wear false eyelashes. It's no secret that I use Mezaik Double Eyelid Stretch Fiber to help keep my eyelids double. I used to use false eyelash glue a long time ago and that's how my eyelids kind of "naturally" became double. In the last couple of years though, it's been "falling" and getting weird on me so I've had to go back to glueing it every once in a while until I discovered Mezaik. However, even with Mezaik, my eyelids (usually the left eye) will get weird on me and I will get a really funky small crease which completely takes over my eyelid that even Mezaik can't seem to undo.
See the teeny tiny ugly crease
Ugh! Eyelids do not look double!
False eyelash glue to the rescue.
See how deep the small crease is even with the Mezaik applied? Not good!
First I'll apply the Mezaik as usual and it'll hold for a while but I will apply the glue over the Mezaik to make sure that it stays nicely doubled. I like to use the tip of the nail file to put the glue onto and then using the file I can apply a nice thin layer of eyelash glue. Normally after a few days, my eyelid will lose the small, ugly crease and go back to normal.
And that is my everyday makeup bag.
