Makeup Bag Essentials: Must-Have Products for Every Fashionista

The internet has flooded with “what’s in my makeup bag” videos that has influenced all our shopping carts, prompting us to buy the latest trendy beauty products. While some makeup bags are filled with more skincare, others are filled with more makeup. The contents of our makeup bag are unique to each person and cater to your needs. We are here to tell you what your essentials should be and what we cannot live without!


Whether you are a skincare fanatic or a makeup enthusiast, sunscreen is one of the most essential items in your makeup bag. It is important to keep your skin protected from those harsh UV rays One of our favorite sunscreens is the unseen sunscreen by Supergoop. This sunscreen doubles as a primer as well!                           



Next, we must ensure we have a good base. A good base will ensure the rest of your makeup applies smoothly. A tinted moisturizer will add coverage while also keeping your skin hydrated. Top that with a liquid concealer and some powder and blush and your base is finished!   


Eye & Brow Makeup

The most noticeable changes in your makeup are your eyes and eyebrows. Your favorite mascara and eyebrow pencil can transform your face and make you look a lot more awake. If   you are someone who does not have the time to do all of that in the morning, eyebrow tinting, and eyelash tinting might be your solution. Godefroy Beauty’s instant eyebrow tint can last up to 4 weeks and comes in a variety of colors.  And when you are traveling or not at home, our sachets are conveniently designed to be small and compact, and can fit right in your makeup bag.  New to eyebrow tinting?

Eyelash tinting can also save you time and money; there would be no need for mascara or lash extensions anymore!  The Godefroy Beauty 28-day Mascara Eyelash Tint can last up to 4 weeks and give the same look as mascara without the hassle! Not only are these helpful for your daily life but as the travel season approaches, these tinting kits can come in handy for on-the-go!  Since these tints are compact, they will effortlessly slip into the tiniest of makeup bags or travel cases.



Now that our base and eyes are done, let us specify what we can use to bring some color to our look with some blush! The Rare Beauty blush in Joy is a beautiful, muted peach that mimics the look of a natural flush to the cheeks. Not only are these blushes extremely pigmented, but Rare Beauty created an enormous range of shades that will fit any skin tone! Kudos to Selena and the Rare Beauty team for creating a staple in everyone’s makeup collection!  



As we move into the colder months, we want to prioritize moisturized lips. Aquaphor is an excellent product to use all year round, but especially during lower temperatures. If that is enough product for you, feel free to stop there! However, if you want to focus on adding some color, try Benefit Cosmetics Benetint –which acts as a lip and cheek tint. Overall, whether you prefer a light or heavy lip, make sure you carry your favorite lip combos! 

Makeup Brushes

Now that we have our list of essential products, we need to decide which brushes we want to use for application! We highly recommend having brushes for foundation, cheeks, and eyes. Also, keeping a pair of tweezers can come in handy to get rid of stray hairs –or even for picking things up if our nail tech went a little too long with our tips.  

Makeup Bags

Finally, once you have selected your brush, we need to pick a makeup bag to put everything in! We want a bag that is big enough to hold everything we need, but also small enough to fit in bags you may use every day, or to fit into your luggage if you are traveling. This makeup bag has a bottom layer to store your brushes as the main compartment holds your products.

Makeup bag products can be quite universal and include sunscreen, foundation, blush, brushes, lip products, and Godefroy’s convenient, long-lasting brow and lash tint! Considering all of this, remember that your essentials depend on what you prefer to wear! Some of us enjoy wearing a full face that follows our current trends, while others love wearing little to no makeup. Purchase and pack items that you are comfortable with, and you will be all set. Remember that Godefroys Instant Eyebrow Tint  comes with sachets that can be easily tucked away into your handbag, backpack, or makeup bag, so it is perfect for when you are on-the-go.
