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: Melissa Age: 25 Beauty icon: "Kimora Lee Simmons. She always does different things with her makeup, unlike me—I do the same thing every day. She’ll wear blue eye shadow one day and smokey eyes the next, and she always looks magnificent." What’s in her makeup bag:
  • Bare Escentuals Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Debbie: "I spent about $20 on this, which is a lot. But I noticed that this color seems to be a trend. It’s kind of peachy and a little dark, but still summery. I usually wear a clear gloss or red lipstick so I wanted a change from that."
  • Sephora Collection Colorful Blush in Healthy Rose: "I like this shade because it actually shows up on my skin!"
  • Halle By Halle Berry Moisturizing Body Lotion: "I got this as a Christmas gift. It's really nice, but not everybody knows about it so people can't guess what scent I’m wearing. I would describe it as feminine, sexy, and mature without being matronly."
  • H&M Eye Shadow Palette in Dark Temptation: "This was cheap—I think it was between $2 and $4. It’s just something I grabbed because I needed more eyeshadow. I wear a smokey eye every day—it looks good so I do it daily! And it's easy to create with these silvery shades."
Thanks, Melissa! Look out for new makeup bag confessions every week (because we’re nosy like that)!
