I’ve had several requests to show what’s in my makeup pouch but never really gotten round to it. A new camera lens makes for a good excuse to take pictures of everything. I also finally got a makeup pouch that is big enough to house the Urban Decay Naked Palette. The previous Gareth Pugh for MAC makeup pouch is still really great to pack in essentials for a weekend stay.

This new makeup pouch (also from MAC) is really spacious. My lips aren’t great looking so I hate accentuating them with lipsticks. I pick really nude colours so they don’t stand out much. As you can probably tell, I can’t live without eyeliners and I pack no less than 5 in this makeup pouch.

The Urban Decay Makeup palette are really the only palettes I use right now. I much prefer the first one as the colours are a lot warmer but the packaging for the second one is great. The bigger mirror is definitely a godsend.

Whats in my makeup pouch:

  • Eyeshadows
    • Urban Decay: Naked Palette
    • Urban Decay: Naked 2 Palette
    • NARS: Outremer (Cobalt blue. probably the only bright colour I have)
  • Blusher:
    • Tarte: Dollface
    • Majolica Majorca: Blood on (a gel base stain, pretty natural looking)
    • Canmake: Cheek gradation in  02
  • Eyeliners:
    • Heavy Rotation: Perfect Liquid eyeliner (brush tip, my absolute favorite)
    • Heavy Rotation: Perfect eyeliner (pencil version, not as great though)
    • Dejavú: Perfect liner (felt tip, not too bad)
    • Dolly Wink: Brush tip eyeliner (comes a close second to Heavy Rotation)
    • TokiDoki: Perfetto Eyeliner (very dark pigments but felt tip felt rough on my eyelids)
    • Stila: Smudge stick waterproof eye liner (lies! it smudged on my lower line)
    • Sephora: Retractable waterproof eyeliner (Lies too!)
    • KIKO: automatic waterproof eyeliner (felt tip, not great)
  • Eyebrow pencils:
    • MAC: Spiked
    • MAC: Brunette
    • ZA: Ever Brows in GY70 (favorite brow pencil, cheap and good)
  • Mascara:
    • Lancome: Hypnosé Precious cells
    • Maybelline: Colossal Volume Express
    • Lash Specialist: Micro Long mascara (got this from Japan, really small brush for coating lower lashes)
    • Brow Lash EX: Lash serum (works as a base for eyelashes)
  • Foundation/Skin etc:
    • Kanebo: Freshel Moistlift BB cream (I really like this)
    • SK-II: Facial Treatment Cream Foundation (It’s expensive but I swear by this foundation, it’s my absolute favorite.)
    • SK-II: Loose power
    • Yves Saint Laurent: Touche Eclat in 02
    • Canmake: Cover & Stretch Concealer UV in 01
    • Canmake: Nose Shadow Powder (just bought this recently for shading noses, this girl does it likeaboss. )
  • Lipstick:
    • MAC: Myth (lol the only one I have in the pouch)
