What's In Your Makeup Bag? Chic and Simple

Do you ever wish you could walk up to a cool-looking girl on the street and ask for a peek inside her makeup bag? Well, we’re doing the snooping for you! Check out what this casually glam lady has in her stash.
Name: Tracy
Age: 27
Occupation: Product manager for a jewelry brand
Beauty icon: "Tracy Ellis Ross. She always looks put together, funky and organic but still pretty."
 What's in her makeup bag: 
  • Sephora Collection Retractable Brow Pencil in Midnight Brown: "It's a good price and the color matches well. I like that it has a little brush on one end."
  • MAC Powder Blush in Ambering Rose: "I would never buy a blush that I can’t try on, and I’ve grown up with MAC because my sisters and my mother use it. I tend to over-blush—I put on a ton and then I have to wipe it off. This is a more subtle pink so it’s less extreme. I don't have to wipe it as much."
  • MAC Lipstick in Brave: "It's a taupe-pink color. I got it because I wanted a nude lip look like Kim Kardashian's."
  • Eucerin Skin Calming Creme: "My skin is really dry and sensitive so if I use a perfumed lotion it irritates my hands. This is unscented. I always keep a little one in my bag."
Thanks, Tracy! Look out for new makeup bag confessions every week (because we’re nosy like that!)
