Work and School Essentials Makeup Kit

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video!  Recently I was cleaning out and reorganizing my old makeup.  It's crazy to see how much makeup piles up and I don't even end up using it.  I thought a great way to make sure of my makeup was to make a specific makeup bag that I can leave at my desk at work.  That way I have something in case I need to touch up or if I have a special event.  This is also a great idea for school.
Check out the video!

The kit is pretty simple and contains the basics.  It's also a great reference tool for those of you looking to start with the makeup essentials.  I picked neutral work/school appropriate colors and items which are smaller are dual purposes in order to save on space.

I house everything in a small Powder Group Makeup Bag, the size of a pencil pouch.

The great thing about my stash is that it contains a lot of very affordable items from the drugstore.  Here are a few of the items (check the video for the complete list):

Posh Mini Brush Set from Bed Bath and Beyond
Eve Pearl Tan Duo Powder
Rodial Click Pen Concealer

Small 5 gram jar of bb cream

Lumene foundation primer from CVS
Mini urban decay primer potion

Drugstore eyeshadow quads (Maybelline Natural Smokes Quad)

Mini lipglosses/lipsticks in wearable shades - your lips but better (Revlon Mauve it Over)

Go through your makeup stash and try to create your own kit with items that are duplicates or that you don't find yourself using as much as you'd like.

Have you all found any great on the go makeup bag items?  Let me know in the comments below!
