my vegas eye makeup bag

vegas make up

I’m heading to Vegas for my friend Simi’s bachelorette party this weekend. We’ll be going to a show, lounging at the spa, and definitely going out in the evenings. I typically keep my eyes pretty minimal even in the evening, but for Vegas I’ll wear a bit more make-up. These are the eye makeup essentials I packed for the trip.

Eyeshadows: I use a light glitter MAC pigment in Jardin Aires (Naked is a similar color) as a base with the MAC 252 Large Shader Brush, MAC eyeshadow in Cranberry for a highlight along the brow bone and on the outer part of the eyelid, and MAC eyeshadow in Black Tied in the corner of the lid for a dramatic effect.

Eyeliner: Next step after applying the eyeshadow is to apply the eyeliner. I always use MAC Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack to line my eyes (following instructions in my minimalist eye make-up tutorial) since it’s easy to apply close to the base of the lashes (which opens up the eye). Then, I apply my MAC eyeliner brush (similar to MAC 209) into the Stila smudge pot in black and apply a much thicker amount of liner to the top of my eye, focusing on the outer ends. Tip: if your eyeliner pot is dry, use Duraline by Inglot to moisten the eyeliner.

Concealer: I apply my under eye concealer next (after wiping off any powder) using the MAC 195 Concealer Brush and the Studio Sculpt concealer in NC35.

Mascara: Last step is to apply a few coats of mascara using my favorite Benefit They’re Real!. I apply 3-5 coats on the top lashes, and one very thin coat on the bottom lashes.

    I packed a RIDICULOUS amount of makeup when I went to Vegas last weekend. I told myself I’d have everything I need, in case anyone forgets. Haha, I didn’t do anyone’s makeup during my trip though. I hope you have fun, it’s hot out there!

  2. LOVE and LIVE for They’re Real. I can’t count how many times people have asked if I’m wearing falsies! PS – Benefit has a contest right now on Instagram…hashtag #realsies and take a photo of your lashes to win a year’s supply 🙂
