What’s In Your Makeup Bag?

What makeup do you wear daily? Everyone’s makeup bag is different. I have asked three lovely ladies what is in their everyday makeup bag. A professional makeup artist, an avid makeup lover and a minimalist. Take a look to see what they have!

~ I love that this makeup bag is so simple. This makeup artist said her 3 must haves are her concealer, mascara and her brow pencil. I can certainly relate!

The avid makeup lover’s bag.

The minimalist’s makeup bag.

~My makeup bag is pretty simple. My 3 must haves are sunscreen, eye liner (cream or powder) and of course mascara! Always mascara;)


I loved seeing these 4 different photos. They really embody the fact that there really is no one way to feel beautiful. In fact I know many women who wear no makeup at all and they are all beautiful. You may have noticed the one very consistent thing among all 4 of us is mascara. Even though we all choose different mascaras it is a must have for all of us. We all have different brands of makeup in our bags, from drug store to department store we have it all. Since I personally know all the ladies I can tell you they are all beautiful. They each apply their makeup differently, and not only does it compliment their faces but their personalities as well. I love that makeup allows us to be who we are.

So what is on your makeup bag?

The Do’s & Don’ts of Beauty

I am a firm believer that there are no rules to beauty. There is no wrong way to apply your makeup. No wrong way to style your hair. No wrong color to paint your nails, and no wrong way to dress.

I would like to start out by introducing myself. My name is Kat and I have been a professional licensed makeup artist and hair stylist for over fourteen years. My love for makeup and hair began a long time ago. In the beginning it was all about the appearance, as time has passed I have come to realize it is so much deeper. On the surface the beauty industry may seem shallow, and to be honest some of it probably is. But what I have discovered is that feeling good about ourselves can make a world of difference. In my career I have had the pleasure to style many women specializing in bridal looks. There is something magical about helping a Bride feel that she looks the same way she feels on such an important day. The glow of a bride truly comes from the inside. This has changed my perspective on all things beauty. Your makeup, hairstyle and clothes should enhance what you have instead of covering it up.

I may not believe in the don’ts, but I do have some of my own do’s. This blog will be filled with my professional tips and tricks as well as product reviews.

Whether you wear makeup every day, just occasionally or never. Get your nails done every other week at the salon or paint them at home on the couch, I hope you will all find something in this blog that relates to you.
