What's In Your Makeup Bag? Simple and Sophisticated

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!

Name: Amira
Age: 22
Beauty icon: "Thandie Newton. Her makeup never looks vulgar or too heavy. She's beautiful and natural. A lot of stars' makeup looks cakey, like they’re faces are going to crack."

What's in her makeup bag: 


  • MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer in NC45: “I love the color. My skin has a yellow tint to it and other concealers tend to go too pink or gray, which doesn’t fit me. I don’t put concealer everywhere—just where I need it, like under my eyes when I look tired.”
  • Guerlain Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara: “My mom is Asian, so I have short eyelashes. This makes them look long and thick, but natural, like I’m not wearing any mascara.”
  • La Mer The Lip Balm: “This is my favorite thing in the world because it tastes good. It makes for a good kiss. Boys, are like, ‘wow!’”
  • Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in No. 32: “It makes my face come alive! It’s a deep red, but it looks true red on me because my lips are dark.”
  • RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Illusive: “This is a new thing that my friend gave me. It’s all natural. I use it as a blush. The color is a bit purpley; I guess you would call it mauve.”
Thanks, Amira! Look out for new makeup bag confessions every week (because we’re nosy like that)!
