What's in Nikki's Makeup Bag?


Do you ever wish you could walk up to a stylish woman on the street and ask for a peek inside her makeup bag? Well, we’re doing the snooping for you!
Name: Nikki
Age: 25
Location: Brooklyn, New York
Where she shops: "I go to Shoe Market and Mini Mini Market on Bedford Avenue [in Williamsburg] a lot because it's convenient. It’s on my way home from work and they have things that stores like Urban Outfitters don’t have. It’s an exclusive boutique."
Her celeb crush: "Ryan Gosling, of course."
On her DVR: "Breaking Bad. Season 4 was awesome."
The summer movie she’s dying to see: "Beasts of the Southern Wild. I’ve read really good reviews about it."
Her guilty pleasure: “Frozen yogurt from Tasti D-Lite. I do the plain vanilla with rainbow sprinkles every time."
The color on her nails: "It’s OPI Gel Color, but I add layer of NYC New York Color Long Wearing Nail Enamel in Starry Silver Glitter on my ring fingers."

What’s in her makeup bag:
  • Dior Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation in Light Beige 200: "I spray it onto a flat brush and then apply it. I love that you can’t really tell when I’m wearing it. Also, it’s not heavy and it doesn’t leave streaks."
  • Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner: "It’s easy to apply with the little brush. It only takes me two seconds to do it."
  • Dior Diorshow Mascara: "Of all the mascaras I’ve tried, I like the Dior brush the most. I don’t have to use waterproof and it still sticks—and it’s thick."
  • Smith’s Rosebud Salve: "There’s no tint to it at all. I don’t like to wear color on my lips."
Thanks, Nikki. Look out for new makeup bag confessions every week (because we’re nosy like that)!
