What's in My Makeup Bag/Beauty Haul Series

Recently I've become obsessed with finding my very own makeup regimen.  I just turned 28, and have never really known much about or worn a considerable amount of makeup.  Over the past year, I've noticed subtle changes in my skin's complexion.  These changes were enough for me to finally decide to take the plunge into the world of cosmetics. 

Where to begin?  I began my journey online- first starting with Google which then led me to YouTube reviews and makeup tutorials.  Eventually I took my quest to the makeup counter at Ulta.  I have been using a specific brand of foundation makeup for several weeks now and have received multiple compliments on my complexion from friends and family.  Overall, I feel the results have been amazing- not only did the makeup enhance my skin with a glowing complexion, but my skin's blemishes have also cleared up.   I've gotten a lot of questions about what types of makeup I've been using, so I wanted to create a beauty haul blog series to share with my readers the types of products I'm experimenting with to create a gorgeous makeup regimen.

The Bag.  I decided it was time to ditch the tiny excuse for a cosmetic bag that has been reserving space on my bathroom counter.  I figured if my entire makeup routine was to get a makeover then my supplies needed to have a new home as well.  After much research, I decided on a Vera Bradley Happy Snails large cosmetic bag.  The bag is an ideal size for those looking to begin their makeup collection and wanting to keep everything organized in one place.  The inside of the bag is a single compartment lined with a washable insulated plastic.  The bag itself opens and closes easily with a zipper.  I found this bag to be colorful an aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  This bag was the perfect addition to my personal taste and style.  Other bags that made the running for possible choices included the Forever 21 collection.  The Forever 21 bags are very stylish and a great alternative for those not looking to spend a lot.
