I’m so excited to feature one of my best friends, Caitlin, for my 10th “What’s in HER bag?” She is the perfect example of a 9-5 working girl who can take a daytime look for the office and transform it to an evening look with a few essentials in her bag.
Inside her bag full of goodies you will find Bobbi Brown, NARS and much more! You will find that sometimes even lipstick can change your outlook on life (hair-flip)!
Makeup bag essentials:
- Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Lilac Rose
- NARS bronzer in Laguna
- NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in More
- Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Nougat
- Dior ‘Addict Lip Glow’ Color Reviver Balm
- Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eyeliner Pencil
- Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner in Black Ink
- Bobbi Brown Blush in Tawny
- Bobbi Brown Brush in Slopes
- Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Burnt Sugar
- Lancome ‘Hypnose Drama’ Mascara
- Vintage Mac Shimmer Powder (staple since high school)
- Bobbi Brown concealer in Bisque
- Make Up Forever HD Powder
- Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick
SITNB: What’s your favorite beauty product of all time?
Caitlin: I would have to say my Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Nougat. I’m big on neutrals and it’s great for a day in the workplace, running errands and I even use it on nights out!
SITNB: If you had to pick three key beauty items what would they be?
Caitlin: Definitely a good foundation, a bright blush and mascara. These 3 items can take you from tired to alive and kicking in a few short minutes.
SITNB: Who is your beauty inspiration?
Caitlin: Probably my friend Gaby. She has been working in the industry for a while now and is just a natural. I go to her for my most important beauty questions. She would never steer me wrong!
SITNB: What was your biggest beauty no-no (come on, we all have had them)?
Caitlin: Not making the natural blend of color from your face to your neck. The best advice I ever got was from Aunt Becky on Full House “The key to wearing make-up is to make it look like you’re not wearing any at all” or something like that…
SITNB: Guys want to know…how much do you really spend on makeup?
Caitlin: I normally buy things when I need them. However, I will splurge twice a year at the Nordstrom Trend Show or when I’m working with my favorite make-up artist!
SITNB: When did you first start wearing makeup?
Caitlin: 6th grade and I had no clue what I was doing. Too much bronzer and way too much eyeliner! I’ve come a long way!
SITNB: What has been your biggest beauty splurge?
Caitlin: Probably first being introduced to Bobbi Brown products. I fell in love and knew I had to have the basics. Now as you can see, I’m kind of a Bobbi snob now!
SITNB: Do you have a product that changed your life?
Caitlin: A red lip! Nothing makes me feel more confident and fun than a night out with a red lip!
