What's In Your Makeup Bag (or tool chest)?

Chic Critique is hosting a What's In Your Makeup Bag Carnival this week. I thought it sounded fun and I'm looking forward to seeing what's in everyone's makeup bag. If you've been following my blog for awhile you know I've mentioned my fave makeup on here a few times before. I'm happy to share again cause I love this stuff! I don't actually have a makeup bag unless I'm traveling. What I do have is an antique tool chest full of Bare Escentuals. It holds my ridiculous amount of makeup perfectly. I have waaaay to much of this stuff, but there are so many pretty colors! I am giving it a break though and will not be buying anymore kits for quite a while. Here are some pics of my tool chest~

Foundation,Radiance,Gossamer,and Bisque~
Eyeshadow,Glimmer, and Glimpse~Awesome brushes~

Buxom lipgloss~This is what I actually use each day~
The one item I use that is not BE is mascara. I've used Loreal Voluminous for years and it's still my favorite.

Here is my daily routine~ I usually start off with the Bare Minerals Foundation and swirl, tap, and buff until I have the coverage I want. Then I use bisque under my eyes and to cover any red areas or blemishes.
I use Well Rested under my eyes and on my lids to make myself look awake and well rested:-) I use java eyeshadow for my brows, and then a base eyeshadow and another eyeshadow on the lid. My favorite's are the glimmer's because I love a little sparkle. After the eyecolor I line my eyes with either a powder liner or a pencil liner. Next comes the Voluminous mascara. When the eyes are finished I feather on some blush, mineral veil, and some radiance. Then finally some buxom for the lips~ I love Buxom lipgloss! So there you have it. That's my daily routine unless I'm just hanging around the house and don't put on any makeup at all which is actually quite often:-) I really do love Bare Escentuals. It is not only a natural makeup with no chemicals, but it is so fun to put on. There are sooo many color choices and different ways of putting it on. The colors can even be mixed to create new colors. If you are looking for a new makeup to try I recommend Bare Escentuals. Stop by a BE Boutique for a free makeunder if you'd like to try it before buying. Have a wonderful week!

A girl after my own heart..I am a total BE girl (QVC) :) I love the tool box idea, perfect for all of the BE things....I may have to steal your idea! Love it!!

~Judy~ said...

I'm also a QVC BE girl. I love the tool idea! You must own EVERY kit BE put out!!! OMG! I have no where near that amount. Lucky girl!

I use it too, for about 10 years now and would NEVER go back to liquid foundation again. You sure have alot of it:)


Debbie said...

Oh my! I don't think I have seen that much make up out of the store. lol I love your tool box. :) Makes my little ziploc baggy look pretty pitiful. *laughing* I don't wear much make-up myself. If I do wear any, it always makes Wendell wonder what I am up too.

How's the weather up there? Down here in SE Missouri its turned cold again. Looks like snow possibly Wednesday night or Thursday.

Stay Warm,

OMG, I think I was in heaven. I'm always thinking about BE but I never bought anything, I think I am completely wrong. After see your awesome box, I am sure that I need to change this ASAP. I will try it !

Janene said...

You made a BE girl out of me!
I simply adore this doesn't settle in any wrikles you may have, and it really look so natural!
People really need to try this stuff!!
Love your tool chest!

My Colonial Home said...

Wow, what a tool box is a shame compared to yours...guess it's cuz I don't wear much of it...but yours is a dream!

Unknown said...

I've been a BE QVC gal for awhile. I don't wear their mascara either. I do wear the bisque, well rested and the fairly light foundation. I love the sparkle factor too. I have all mine in plastic fishing tackle boxes I got at Bass Pro ages ago. I have my essentials in a prim style tin that sits on my sink.
Where did you get your tool box, love that! I'm with you on the kits I stopped buying so much some of them seem repetitive. I do regret not buying the last one though.


Never So Simple said...

I think you just found your new job. Spokes lady for BE. I would contact them and send them that picture. You never know.


The Buntens said...

Wow - now that is quite a make-up collection. The tool box is awesome!

Jo-Lynne said...

Loving the antique tool chest. BRILLIANT!

TidyMom said...

Janae I remember when you first posted about your makeup tool chest........I'm STILL in AWE!! I just started trying some mineral makeup last year and LOVE it!! I use BE powder EVERY day!!

Classy Fab Sarah said...

Wow, that makeup chest is like my HEAVEN!

Love your well-organized stash!

carolyn@simple~primitive~devotion said...

Love the tool box. Wow, you have a lot of BE make-up!

My routine is not as complex as your's. After brushing my teeth and cleansing my face, I apply mascara, then apply my mineral foundation, then mineral blush and then I do my hair. And I'm done! With the mineral make-up, I don't have a need for face powder.

My skin is normally oily, so I do not use moisturizer unless the weather is bitter cold and my skin is chapped, which is not very often.

WOW ~ You could be a BE Consultant!
I love the tool chest idea ~ your collection is awesome! I am also a fan of BE. As a Dental Assistant, and wearing a face mask during the day, BE is so wonderful and NEVER wears off! I will be adding "Well Rested" to my collection.

koopermom said...

Wow! I am completely jealous of your makeup's like heaven!

I love BE powders. I got hooked about a year ago and love them!!!

Maureen said...

I have the same chest! Love it! Mine's not ALL BE, since I can't stop buying other brands, too! I'm a total makeup junkie!
