In My Make-up Purse

May look a bit messy, but I like to keep it simple what comes to my make-up. These are the essential items found in my purse.
Not fond of heavy foundations so BB & CC creams are perfect for me. The coverage in this Clinique Superdefence is enough, it corrects and protects skin. And SPF30 is not bad either. My shade is Light Medium. Under my eyes and also other areas needing some lift (basically the whole face…) I add a touch or two this Lumene's Touch of Radiance Highlighter with brightening arctic lingonberry.
I paint 'number 3' on both of my cheeks with MAC's powder blush in Harmony matte. 

This brow crayon by Anastasia Beverly Hills changed my life! I've been using tweezers too eagerly over the years so my brows are really thin. This is so easy to add some color and texture to the brows. Ash Blonde is my color.

I add eye shadow to even the color of the lids. Light shades are my favorite ones. At the moment I'm using Lumene's Blueberry Long-Wear Solo yes shadow in Pine Woods.

My favorite reds!
Giorgio Armani: Blushing fabric
Clinique: Chubby sticks in 05 Chunky Cherry & 12 Oversized Orange
Clinique: Powder blush in 01 Aglow

I choose one of these when my face is lacking color.

Urban Decay's Naked eye shadow palette is amazing with all those gorgeous natural shades. Not in my everyday use but occasionally when wanting to feel a bit more glamorous.

There's no mascara in my purse at the moment… right, I have some added lashes among my own ones. Makes life so much easier! 

I'm carrying these items in my purse as well even though it's very seldom i have time or remember to use any of them…

Nars: Light reflecting setting powder in Transculent Crystal
Lumene: Illuminating and smoothing primer,
Matifying retexturizing primer,
Eyeshadow primer,
Dark under eye concealer.
Kiehl's: Beautifying BB cream in Light (sample)

I usually update my purse in every season - adding something, deleting something.


  1. Hei - kysynys tuosta Naked paletista - olen monta kertaa ollut ostamaisillani sen koska sen varit vaikuttaa niin kivoilta, mutta sitten aina muistan lukeneeni jostain arvostelun etta varit eivat sopisi kovin vaaleaihoisille blondeille... Nykyaanhan noita Nakedeja on tullut jo nro 2 ja 3, mutta tuo eka versio on edelleenkin eniten mun mieleen. Kannattaisiko se kuitenkin hankkia? Tuleeko kaikkia noita vareja kaytettya?

    1. No, eihän niitä kaikkia värejä tule käytettyä, ainakaa mä en käytä, jotenkin jämähtää aina niihin tiettyyn pariin. Kyllä nämä värit on ainakin mulle sopineet ja olen tosi vaaleaihoinen varsinkin talvisin. Ihastuin paletin upeisiin sävyihin ja sen monipuolisuuteen, mutta vähemmälläkin oisin pärjännyt.

  2. Hi! I'm visiting Budapest next week and besides all the sightseeing I want to shop maybe some makeup, so I was wondering what brands can you find in Budapest and where (like Nars, Anastasia & UD that you show here)? Is there like some Sephora kind of shop? I could only find that there's a MAC store. Is there maybe a good hungarian makeup brand that's worth trying out? All info is much appreciated !!
