The Ladies Lounge- Peek into Workday Warpaint Bag!

Hella hella ladies!

Sorry for the overtly cheery greeting, I am in such a mood today. Don’t ask me why though. I am not really sure to be honest. Right now, I’m in my prissy, feminine, petty, materialistic avatar.

I was not sure what to post today. I just put Lil Miss Zoe down and got down to cleaning out my closet and vanity. Nothing fancy, just some light re- organisation and decluttering. I realised that of the make- up that I have collected over the past couple of years, I seem to be using the same stuff everyday in terms of what I wear to work. Most days, it’s just sunscreen (La Roche Posay – Anthelios Xl SPF 50+ Fluide Extreme), brows and lip balm. On days that I actually have the time, or want to look presentable I dig into my “Work- Makeup Bag”. The bag usually has all the stuff that I use and like the most, at any given point of time. Of course, the bag and it’s contents are constantly being chopped and changed.

This has been The Workday Warpaint Bag for the past couple of months.

The Workday Warpaint Bag of the season!

Another lip- staple- for days that I want a matte lip.

I am in my comfort zone at the moment, with all the above products. And they are starting to bore me slightly. I intend to rotate all of the “stuff” that I own. Yes. That seems like a “resolution” I can stick to. Eeks! Resolutions? I seem to be getting decidedly uncool by the day!

Do tell me ladies, what are your favorites for everyday makeup? I am a nosey parker today….

Till next time..
