I was watching what's in my bag videos on Youtube the other day when I realized that I actually haven't done this type of content before. I've always found looking into other people's bags and everyday pouches super interesting (as a chismosa), so I thought I'd do it too! Here's a quick look at what's inside my makeup pouch 🎀✨

The pouch I'm using is an off-brand pouch I found at our local thrift store. I love shiny and sparkly things so when I saw it I couldn't let go of it. I've been using this for maybe 4 or 5 years now? It's not very noticeable in the photos, but some of the links have fallen off already. I'm thinking of buying a new pouch soon though. Something that fits my ~aesthetic~ more. To be honest I have a lot of much cuter pouches at home but I kept using this one because it's the perfect size to hold all the things I need while still being able to fit inside my smaller handbags.

I have a habit of putting charms or keyrings on my all-black items. I share a closet with Aian at home, and his clothes are all black so if this pouch falls out of my bag and into his side of the closet, I wouldn't be able to find it. That's why I put Episode there. Episode is a character from one of my favorite series, Bakemonogatari 🥰

The first item! I always keep a powder pact or a cushion in my pouch for checking and touching up. It has to have a mirror, or else I won't bring it with me. I already used up my previous cushion, so these days I've been using the Canmake Marshmallow Finish Powder *. I'm using the Marshmallow Finish Face Brush * with it because I lost the puff that comes with the pact. (The brush fits perfectly inside!) I like this powder a lot, so I buy refills whenever I run out. I'm still using the same case I first got from Canmake years ago, so it's a bit worn out. Even with the slight wear it still looks really cute whenever I take it out to check my makeup!

Lip tints! I use a lot of waterproof and smudgeproof products already, so I don't really have to re-apply makeup as the day goes on. I only ever fix my base and lip makeup. For lips I usually bring the lip product that I wear on that day, plus 1-2 more colors. These days it's almost always these three: Innisfree Vivid Cotton Ink in 06 Faded Beige Tulip (reviewed here), Peripera Ink Mood Matte Tint in 04 Soft Cedarwood (a gift from my friend Donna), rom&nd Dewyful Water Tint in 04 Chili Up *. Bet you can't guess what my favorite color is for makeup 🤪 There was one time I got asked by a friend why I even bother with bringing 3 tubes of lip tint when they're all the same colors. I like having options, okay! Do I want orange? Coral? Peach? Brick? There's a difference!

Next, contact lenses. There have been times when I've had to change into contact lenses or change the contacts I was wearing into a more comfortable type, so now I remember to keep an extra pair in my pouch. Daily lenses, because those are the most comfortable ones. Right now what I have are Vivi Ring 1Day Choco * lenses. These are super cute. The Vivi Ring series is my go-to for everyday wear lenses. The Brown ones are my favorite. When I wear these lenses my overall vibe becomes a lot softer, so I tend to reach for them often. The color and design are super natural too, so I can wear them with pretty much any look, even with little to no makeup.

Since my hair has gotten longer now, when it gets too hot/humid outside I'll want to put my hair up, so this hair clip (or hair clamp?) is a must-have item for me. Or at least, it was. Aian accidentally broke it a few days ago 🥲 These days I've been bringing hairties instead.

Something I can never leave at home, my pretty purple inhaler! I don't get asthma attacks often but I have to carry this with me at all times, just in case. Aian asked me if I specifically got a purple inhaler. It just so happened to be purple! But it's really cute. It's the purple that I like too, so I put stickers on it. I don't like having to use it but looking at it makes me happy. I also bring Advil and Loperamide with me. Super important!! 😭 I've started bringing Bonamine with me too, in case I get another vertigo episode while I'm out.

And that's it! I don't really carry a lot of makeup when I go out. When I was younger I used to bring so much makeup with me, but I guess I know better now. I'm curious to know what's in everyone else's makeup pouches! What's something that you always have to carry with you no matter what? Let me know in the comments 💜
