What's in My Makeup Bag - Lidia Stithole


Who doesn't lust over the makeup products in Lidia Stithole's bag? That lady has some serious taste when it comes to picking out beauty items, from high street to designer, Lidia just has a knack for pulling together the right look. Also she is not in the least bit afraid of colour rocking vibrant hues such as reds, purples, yellows and greens. She took time out to show us the makeup items in her makeup bag. Describe the items in your makeup bag. I put my makeup bag together a short while ago, it is organised in a way so I am prepared for any situation that may require me to put my makeup on. The contents cover a basic face to a super glam full face makeup, I packed it so I am equipped to do your basic eyeliner to lashes. I needed to update and upgrade my bag because the season had changed and I had to get myself in order to save time when I'm getting ready. This makeup bag is full. The reason for this is because I'm always on the run and sometimes I leave the house with no makeup on and I have to do it in the next location or in the car. These are the products that I carry around.

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield This is my primer, I use this under my makeup and on occasion I use this on its own. It helps keep the shine away and if you are going to take pictures it does wonders for that.

Lorac Tantizer Baked Bronzer This product is amazing on black skin. It's a great bronzer/highlighter which gives a sun kissed glow. Plus you don't have to be a pro to figure this one. Your regular blush or powder brush will do the trick.

Marc Jacobs Genious Gel This is one of my favourite foundations, it's light and has buildable coverage. It's a gel formula which is great for the Texas heat and humidity. I love the texture and the colour matches very well.

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer My goodness this one I love. The best way to describe this product is a really good concealer that also could moonlight as a foundation or a corrector. Very little goes a long way because you don't need a lot. This product really makes your skin ready for HD and applied correctly gets you those "wow, your skin is soooo pretty" comments. LOL

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara I've been using this for about a month and I love it. It's super black and volumizing so for people like myself with short thin lashes, this one is great.

Kat Von D Ink Liner I am big on eye liners and eye makeup - I love to focus on the eyes. This is a liquid eyeliner; it's easy to use and it's super dark plus it stays put. The tip is sturdy so you can really get a precision line with no trouble.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil The colour is Dragon Girl which is a beautiful red colour. This is one of those colours that everybody can wear easily and it's just beautiful. From a full face application to your minimalist two to three product type of woman, this colour works. I don't wear makeup every single day but these products are the ones I've been using repetitively. I will also be buying them again and again.

Which is your favourite item in your makeup bag? My favourite item in my makeup bag is my mascara, I'm big one eyes. No pun intended. So I love to make my lashes pop. Even if my face is bare if I have mascara on I look awake or present.

Where did you get your makeup bag from? I bought my makeup bag at Sephora. I had been on the lookout for a makeup bag and I saw these cute pouches and I got one. I've had it for a few weeks now and I love it. I love the silly message on it too.
