Lancome make-up bag, assorted e.l.f. brushes, MAC "gleeful" blush, MAC "fascinating ruby" eyeshadow palette, Sephora loose powder in golden brown, Revlon Colourstay liquid eyeliner in blackest black, Maybelline Great Lash mascara in blackest black, Shu Uemura 24k gold eyelash curler, MAC "honeylove" matte lipstick, Estee Lauder "dune rose" lipstick

A little "what's in her make-up bag" and make-up routine post. I originally wanted to just share the E.l.f. brushes I received in the mail recently, but I figured that I may as well do an entire make-up post. The e.l.f brushes were only $15 since the studio line was 50% off! I honestly don't know too much about make-up so forgive me!

For my eye make-up routine, I usually start with the Great Lash mascara (it's now my all time fave mascara) and curl my lashes with the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. This is the usual routine on a typical school day.

If I'm going out, I will apply a layer of the "satin taupe" eyeshadow from the MAC palette using a "C" brush and then a thin layer of the Revlon Colourstay liquid eyeliner on the upper and lower lids. A bit of blush is normally brushed on afterwards. As for lipsticks, I use the MAC honeylove lipstick (the "blankety" shade was used a lot more until it went missing) and the Estee Lauder dune rose. I usually apply the dune rose after the honeylove since the honeylove is a bit light.

I received the MAC eyeshadow palette and blush from my dearest friend bonnie, she's amazing!
