{what's in my bag} makeup

{what's in} my makeup bag
This is something that changes for me quite a bit as time goes by. But being totally real right now.....I've been mascara free since the middle of January.....

{mascara} free
It's a decision I made after feeling like mascara was weighing me down. So one day I decided to just go for it. I felt *naked* for a few weeks, but now I absolutely love it! I know it isn't a permanent transition but those who know me, are use to all the crazy spontanious changes I go through with the way I like to look. So, right now my makeup situation is totally easy:

  • Acne treatment (I have very oily skin)
  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer in fair to light (I love the sunscreen, moisturizer, retinol, and lightweight feel of this product)
  • 3 different makeup brushes
  • Blush by Rimmel in Pink Rose (this stays on my skin all day....bonus!)
  • Pur Minearal Shadow in Amber as an eye shadow
  • Pur Mineral Shadow in Chocolate Topaz as an eyeliner (I like to wet a small, fine, thin, stif brush to apply this)
  • From time to time I also like to use a lip stain (right now I use Covergirl Outlast Lipstain or Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm)
What are your favorite products to use?  <3 Carrie


  1. I remember when you stopped wearing mascara I said you reminded me of Hannah :) I love it Your hair looks sweet too it's fun looking through our pictures and the pictures of you now with all the different changes.


  2. Oh you are daring. I don't think I could live without my mascara. I'm a redhead and if I don't wear it, my eyelashes disappear. My favorite product in my makeup bag isn't make up. It's my face wash. It's a daily glycolic peel by Olay (you can get it at CVS) and I've been using it for years. I couldn't go without it!
