What’s in the Bag this week is with Ari Gonzalez. Ari does marketing at Nikki Beach and is always really busy and sometimes needs to keep her makeup with her because she’s always on the go. When I took a peek into her makeup I felt like I just walked into a Sephora! All of her products are good! Arianna even got me to wear my hair down (my friends will know this is a shocker) while I was in Miami and she taught me how to curl my hair while I was there because my hair wasn’t use to the humid weather. Arianna’s makeup always looks flawless even when it was hot and sweaty in LIV or Mynt, her makeup looked good and she never looked shiny. Hopefully, I’ll get to do another post with her and she’ll give me some makeup tips.
Here is what Ari had in her bag:
Benefit Beauty Bag- The Bag is heat proof so your makeup won’t melt.
VS smokey Eyes 101- The smokey eye palette is goo on the run & to go from day makeup to night make up in a jiffy. Just in case you don’t have time to go home.
Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes, an eye contour kit- Benefit palette has neutral colors I normally wear everyday. Keeps the face looking clean & without too much makeup.
Make Up For Ever duo Mat 207 Powder Foundation- This foundation compact I use it with a powder brush to seal in my liquid foundation & make it last all day
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish- Medium Plus in Natural- With this MAC makeup I sometimes brush this on to refresh my makeup and it’s very light…
Bobbi Brown Gel Liner- Lasts all day, looks like a liquid liner, also could be used as a foundation to wear an all over black shadow.
Lash Curler Revlon- Cheap & Durable. I got it from my mom & it works wonders with my long lashes.
Bond 9 Chez Bond- My favorite line of perfumes. Can’t go wrong with any one of the Bond 9 perfumes.
Nars Orgasm Blush- I swear by this!! Looks natural and just like a natural flush with a little bit of shine.
Nars Laguna Bronzer- Makes you look tan without the sparkle. It looks so natural. I use it for contouring.
Bobbi Brown Face Blender- Comes with the bronzing powder. Love this for night-time.
Anastasia Clear Brow Gel- My Favorite eyebrow gel. Keeps brow hairs in place all day.
Benefit Instant Brow Pencil- Fills in imperfections & isn’t too cakey.
Tarte Smooth Operator Waterproof concealor- Great for those sleepless nights
Make Up For Ever Foundation, Concealor- My fave concealor. It’s hard to hide under eye circles but this little clicker is the best!!!
VS Beauty Rush Lip Gloss- Love the taste of this!
Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Dawn- Stays put even after eating. Ideal for when I’m at work and have no time to reapply.
Benefit They’re Real Mascara- My favorite mascara of all time!! Makes my lashes look like fake ones without the pain on having to put fake lashes on.
YSL Touche Eclat in 3- Covers under eye circles.
Sugar Lip Polish Lip Conditioner- My lips get dry a lot so I use this morning & night so it keeps my lips from flaking.
La Mer Eye Cream Roller- Great under eye night cream.
MAC lipstick in Midi Mauve- Love all MAC lipsticks. Great Pigmentation.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Beach- Makes you look bronzed & shiny! Very Sexy!
Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner- Lasts all day and it has a very thin tip. That makes it great for lining the bottom of your eyes and making a thin top line. I’ve used many eye liners and this is my favorite of all brands.
MAC Eye Kohl- Love this color for day time to line my eyes and make them pop without using black eyeliner, since sometimes it’s too much.
L’Oreal Extra Intense Liner in Black- Make a think line. Great for cat eyes & looks like a liquid eye liner.
Tweezer Kit- Emergency tweezing. In case you missed a hair, has a great little brow highlighter pencil & the gel is great, ideal for traveling.
Thanks Ari! That makeup bag sounds amazing! I need one so I can really put it to the test, I know I run around a lot in LA and leave my makeup in the car all the time and have ruined tons of lipsticks! I also want to try the Benefit Mascara because your lashes look so long and pretty! And finally, I want the Revlon’s Just Bitten in Dawn, that color looks so fun and seems like the perfect summer color!
