I do! πŸ™‚
I usually carry my studio fix + foundation, blushes, several lipglosses, blotting papers, mirror, mascara, eyeshadow (in case I need to touch up), 239 and 129 brushes, maybe a lipstick, bronzer, bobby pins (lol), chapstick, mini eye liners and… my gel eyeliner. πŸ™‚

I used to carry a purse but not anymore – just bring lipgloss if going out and wallet. But in my work bag, I do not bring a makeup bag. I do have a small makeup bag though in my desk drawer at work πŸ™‚

I’m exactly the same. I’ve stopped carrying a purse around, but even so I never really took to carrying my makeup with me. Recently i’ve taken to carrying whatever lip product I’m wearing that day, but that’s all.

And I similarly keep a stash of my everyday products at my desk. It’s just so simple to have them there, ready and together.

I usually don’t even have a purse with me; but, when I do, I don’t (what? ha ha). I used to have a makeup bag in my backpack about three years back, though. Now, just essentials in the smallest pocket of my trusty Jansport.

YES! It’s a must! It’s mostly lip products inside it. Like lip balm, a few shades of lipstick, and maybe a lipgloss thrown in there as well. I also have in there a travel size perfume, eye drops, contact lens case, bobby pins, and concealer!

I have a fist full of lipsticks and glosses, mascara, and whatever else I have time to throw in my bag in the morning.

All the time and here are the current contents:
Tools – eyelash curler, angled liner brush, BE wet/dry brush, BE dueal ended smoky eye brush, & BE blending brush
Face – Dior Nude concealer & Dior Nude Sculpting Powder
Eyes – UD 24/7 liners in Stash, Crash, Bourbon, & Underground; Dior Show mascara; and BE Smoky Amber eyecolor
Lips – MAC Purple Rage lipglass, aromaleigh rocks notorious lip tint, BE Buxom in Ruby, MAC Nymphette lipglass, Rouge Dior in Amber Camera, BE Buxom in Joy, and Dior Kiss in Fizzy lemonade.
I have two small kids and need to be able to put myself together anytime or anywhere & this all fits in a relatively small makeup bag. Though these contents can shift dramatically from day to day, something new goes in some thing else has to go – it won’t zip shut otherwise.

Yes I do! I bring MAC pressed blot powder, my blush for the day, lip liner, lipstick and gloss for the day. My face gets really oily after about 3hrs and my lipstick fades too so i constantly need the touch-ups especially when i have 12-hr days!

Depends on how big my purse is, but I usually try to fit a makeup bag in my purses. Ever since I started doing it, I noticed that I didn’t misplace my makeup as much.

me too! and thats all i have haha. …except im pretty sure i have an over abundance of lip products floating around my purse lol!

I do! I carry around blotters, lipgloss of the day, tissue, a mini comb, a mirror, a few bobby pins, and a mini bottle of hand lotion.

Contents change depending how much I finished of my makeup in the morning. Usually there’s a curler, mascara, Chanel blotting powder, lipsticks, blush brush, blushes and sometimes lipgloss.

I usually put in a concealer (studio Finish/NW20)and a powder (maybelline dream matte powder/03).
My favorite eyeliner (MUFE aqua eyes/0L) and a mascara (wichever one im using at the time, right now thats 1001 cils by bourjois).
A few lipsticks, lipglosses and my favorite chapstick(nivea a kiss of moisture).
A few brushes and sometimes a blush.


I definitely do although most of the time it’s not really necessary to carry as I usually only touch up my lipstick/lip gloss. I don’t know why but i like carrying at least 5-10 different lip products (totally unnecessary). I also make sure I carry black eyeliner, mascara, mineral powder compact, NARS deep throat blush and an e/s quad so I can do my makeup at work if I don’t have time before I leave.

Sure do, never leave home without it!

MAC MSF natural, 129 travel size brush, mini MAC sample jar filled with foundation, concealer, mary kay lip mask & balm, pocket mirror, mascara, curler & spoolie, black eyeliner pencil,

stuff i add daily depending on what i’m using that day… lipstick, gloss, blush, waterline color liner

alot i know! πŸ™‚

I do, I use the mini make-up bag that came with the mac naughty noir (?)eye bag last holiday season. I carry my mac MSFN (which is what I use as ‘foundation’) a kabuki, a mini urban decay E/L, A lipstick and mini lipgloss (also from the holiday sets), my dermaogica Lipbalm, a trial size of lush charity pot lotion in a little tin, and a sample size spray of Chanel Chance Tendre.

I no longer carry a handbag because it would get so heavy that it would mess up my posture and hurt my shoulder; now I carry a little clutch where I can barely fit my wallet, phone and exactly one lipstick and a compact( the super pretty Baroque boudoir one :)).

My purse pretty much is a makeup bag, I keep whatever I’m wearing on my lips, some eyeliner and face powder, a brush, some money and a pen.
