What’s In My Beauty Bag?

Hey, this is Megan Kristel with KristelClosets.com.
And today, I wanted to do a little segment that we like to call, What’s in My Beauty
Bag? So let’s take a look. This is my makeup bag. It’s actually — the one that I use at
home is much bigger than this but we’re only going to talk about a few products today. I just did a blog on a company that I love
called Jane Iredale. I was introduced to the Jane Iredale product line from my makeup artist,
Becky Bowe [0:00:37] [Phonetic]. And I was sort of in love with the feel of the products
that I just recently started using. So I wanted to share them with you. The first one is this little bottle here.
This is called Balance. It’s basically like a spray. It’s a hydrating spray. But what
it does is it sort of preps your skin for makeup and it just sort of feels wonderful
and lovely. I also use it throughout the day. It’s really great this time of the year. We’re
filming this in the dead of winter. So you know how it is when you’re going back and
forth in between a really hot office and then you’re going outside and it’s freezing and
it can sort of wreck havoc on the moisture in our skin. So I keep this in my bag all
the time. And I just spray — you can spray it right
on your makeup. I’m not going to do it here because it took me way too long to do this
face this morning. And I also use it after the gym, just to sort waking me up and refresh
me a little bit. So I really love this. This fragrance is called Balance. It’s sort of
like grapefruit, smells amazing. So I would definitely recommend picking something like
this up. The next thing that I really love from her
collection is this foundation. So, this is probably — I don’t know if it’s her signature
piece or not but it’s by far, my most favorite piece in what she offers. It’s a mineral powder.
It’s called PurePressed Base. It has an SPF of 20 in it which is great because it’s so
difficult to sort of always have to remember to put sunscreen on separately. I love that
it’s actually in the makeup. And this is sort of everything. It’s foundation. It’s cover-up.
It’s a pressed powder. So it’s a really great item if you just need to get things done quickly.
I never leave the house without it. The thing that I love about it is that — you
can see how much I use it, I love it because it’s mineral makeup so if you know the traditional
mineral makeup that comes in the jars and has powder and it just makes a big mess, this
is in a pressed. So you can touch up throughout the day. It’s not going to get in the bottom
of your makeup bag or your handbag and it’s really fantastic. Plus, it comes in this super
chic little compact and then after you use it, you just buy the refills. If you want
to as well, you can also just take a brush and use it as a loose powder on your face
to set your face when you’re done. So this is really fantastic. And it comes in all different
colors. The thing that I love about Jane Iredale and
her products is that she’s thinking about everyone. So you can be as fair as I am or
you can have really deep, beautiful skin tone and you’re going to have a color that’s going
to work for you. It’s not limiting to skin tones or colors or anything like that. And then finally, these are — I’m sort of
obsessed with lip glosses. And these two lip glosses are like by far the best lip gloss
I’ve used and I’ve used a lot of them. It’s called PureGloss by Jane Iredale. And I don’t
know how she does it, how she gets all the sort of wonderfulness in this little jars
but it basically has natural ingredients that also plump your lips. So you sort of get a
little tingle when you first put it on. What I really love about it is the color saturation
is great. Sometimes when you put on a lip gloss, it either disappears right away or
the pigment in the color doesn’t go all around your lips so you feel like you’re sort of
smearing color around. This is really pigmented so you get a gloss but also, the same sort
of saturation that you would from a regular lipstick. The colors that I really like are
cherry sparkle which I have a little bit of that on right now. It’s just a really great
sort of rosy red. And then this is my every day color. This is called soft peach. And
it just sort of brightens your lips without drawing too much attention to them. But it’s
really pretty if you just want to do a natural face and look really polished. So I would definitely recommend going on to
Jane Iredale’s website which is JaneIredale.com and checking out her product selection. I’m
sure that you will be thrilled with it. And until next time, I’ll see you guys later.
