Blog Series: In my Makeup bag

Today I’m happy to have Crystalin from In the City with Crystalin sharing her favorite makeup products with us. She’s one of my favorite people to follow and I’m pretty sure we would hang out together if I lived in San Francisco (she likes fashion and fitness, wink!). Make sure to check out her blog!

What’s your current makeup bag?
My current makeup bag is an old pink Coach bag… but I’ve been eyeing this one for overnight and  this one for everyday.  
Do you have a makeup tip or secret you would like to share? 
I think any type of prep and prime is a must. It really does help keep your makeup on all day. Also, I always get compliments on how soft my skin is. I’ve lived by Lubriderm body lotion since I was a kid … I won’t use anything else. I even got the boy hooked 🙂

Any particular makeup trend that you’re looking forward for summer?
I’m looking forward to trying all the new nail colors coming out, especially anything bright or neon.

How does your day makeup routine differs from your night time one?
I switch from a brown powder eye liner (day) to a liquid black (night). I also use a darker eye shadow, add the eye paint to show off the different colors, and spray the MAC prep and prime to get an overall finished look. It also keeps my makeup in place. There’s nothing like smeared eyeliner or having your eye shadow disappear by the end of the night.
