Musings of the Day: The Makeup Bag

tag pink

This actually isn’t as hard a question as I thought it would be when I was originally writing it out…Jump ahead to read why!

When I first asked myself What was the most important thing in my makeup bag? I started to panic! How could I just pick one thing? But than I realized, wait a sec, I don’t carry a slew of cosmetics with me in my bag anyway so what am I so worried about?

If I had to pick thing it would be cheek stain. It’s completely multitasking so I can give a hint of color to my cheeks and lips and at the very least I look healthy and fresh so it’s probably the most important item in my bag. Although my makeup doesn’t last all day, my skin is very clear so I don’t need to keep touching up with powder or foundation. I chew my gloss off almost an hour after it’s on so it’s important to keep one stashed away but I find that once it’s off I get too busy to actually reapply so unless I am going out after work I don’t retouch it. I carry a compact mirror but that’s honestly available anywhere…in my car, in a bathroom, etc..where can’t you find a mirror nowadays right?

So stain it is icon wink Works on my cheeks and lips and makes me go from dull to lovely!

How about you? What’s the most important thing in your makeup bag?

Stash Spotlight: Gransenbon Gran Blush

spotlight

Gransenbon Gran Blush is my go to product for soft, gently flushed cheeks! Which could account for why I’ve stocked up on a majority of the colors offered!

I think many of us stateside aren’t afraid of color. We aren’t shy in using a deeper, pigmented blush to make cheeks pop! However, many colors you’ll find in Asian brands are softer and lighter for a more natural, unmade up look. Gransenbon Gran Blush caters towards a more natural finish that, when I’m in the mood for it, is truly flattering.

The shades have a tiny hint of shimmer that’s barely noticeable and all the shades are soft and delicate even those that are darker only give the barest kiss of color. For the most part I do admit that the packaging with it’s soft pink outer case and cute dual compartment is what captured my attention at first but soon after I was thrilled over the color selection which is how I ended up hauling away most of the catalog of colors offered!

Here’s a little peek at my stash of Gran Blushes!
