What does your make-up bag say about you?

You know we do our best to bring you the latest and greatest beauty news and recommendations daily. If we’re loving something, we want to shout it from the rooftops – but the real proof, is what we actually choose to use ourselves.

 

I took the liberty of hijacking everyone’s make-up bags and taking a snap of what they use on a daily basis – nothing was hidden, nothing added. This is what you’d find lurking in the deepest, darkest corners in the handbags of eight of the bh team members.

 

Your job is to match up the bh team member to the make-up bag. Sound simple enough? Let’s go!

 

First, here is our team (note, only eight team members have been used, and one of the eight is our newbie, Cherie – who isn’t on the about us page  – yet!)

  

Bag 1: LIV - The essentials queen. Powder, bronzer and two brow tools, plus a liquid liner, mascara and not one, not two, but three lip goodies! All a girl needs to show off her best face ever.

 

Bag 2: LAINA - The a la natural one. A slight cheek shimmer and a slick of sheer gloss is all this natural nut needs.

 

Bag 3: SARAH - This person is a believer in ‘If you’ve got the tools to put a bit of colour into your cheeks, maintain your brows and nails and keep your hair off your face, you’re winning,’

 

Bag 4: CARLI - The indulger. As long as you have a good fragrance, red lippy and nourishing hand balm, what else could a girl possibly need?

 

Bag 5: NAT - The minimalist. Who needs a heavy bag when all you need is powder for touch ups, mascara, a single lip hue, and a multi-tasking face colour?

 

Bag 6: CHERIE - The girly girl who loves options. 17 lip colours? Yes please! Plus a dry shampoo and other pretty bits and pieces if there’s room, why not?

 

Bag 7: ANNALISE - The prepared one. This bh beauty knows she’ll be good to go whatever impromptu event pops up thanks to this bag of beauty loot.

 

Bag 8: JACKIE - The glamour puss. This kit allows the owner to be dolled up and ready for anything in around 2.0 seconds.

What do you have in your own make-up bag right now? Come on, be honest!

Tell us, which make-up bag belongs to which team member? There could be a cool prize for whoever gets all eight right!

Gawd, I'm not even organized enough to have a regular beauty bag. It would be different every time for me. I just throw a few things together at the last minute if I need to take something with me. At home I just have a draw full of mixed up cosmetics and skin care.

How fascinating is this? Pretty impressive collection of goodies gals, but I would expect no less from the bh Team :-) My makeup bag contains emegency pressed powder, blush, lipstick, gloss, lip pencil, cotton buds, floss, nail file, teeny bottle of foundation & perfume vial, spare set of earrings (in case I lose one, or accidentally walk out the door with naked lobes), eyeshadow brush, safety pins, blotting papers and a comb...

I only pack a makeup bag if I'm going away somewhere, then I put ALL my essentials in there. In my handbag, I always carry lip balm.
