Blog Series: In my makeup bag

Sarah from Chevrons and Stripes is sharing her favorite makeup products with us today. I love Sarah’s blog so make sure to check it out (if you haven’t yet, of course), I’m sure you’re going to love it too. And, you should also check out her beautiful home, it was featured on Glitter Guide!

What’s your current makeup bag?
I’ve used the classic Bendel’s brown and white striped cosmetic case forever!

Do you have a makeup tip or secret you would like to share?
I definitely don’t claim to be any sort of a makeup guru but one tip I’ve always adhered to is using eyeshadow as eyeliner. I don’t have the steady hand needed to apply liquid liner and powder is SO much more forgiving and easier to apply.

Any particular makeup trend that you’re looking forward for summer or fall?
Hmm, I’ve never been one to take note of makeup trends because I stick to what I’m comfortable with but I did recently try eyelash extensions and I have to say, I loved them. I felt like I didn’t need a single ounce of makeup when I woke up in the morning! I’m considering re-investing in them for the upcoming wedding season…

How does your day makeup routine differs from your night time one?
Is it a sin if I admit that I often don’t wear any makeup during the day? Well, a smidge. I wear mascara and maybe a little something on my lips but that’s about it. At night I add liner (sometimes shadow) and usually a little darker lip. I’ve never been one to go all out though…
