what do celebrities carry in their makeup bags?

One of my favorite online beauty columns is the Beauty Essentials section of Style.com.  

The correspondents interview different starlets on what is in their makeup bags …then report all the goods to all us! 

To me, reading this column is equivalent to waking up on Christmas morning!

Okay, maybe not quite that level of excitement (I’m still a little girl at heart), but it is like discovering gold. 

Ok, maybe not that either, but you get the picture.

I’m going to share with you a few different products from a handful of the featured celebrities.  If you’d prefer to know the full contents of these ladies’ makeup bags, then check it out at style.com!

    ok I am SO piping in here as I love this post!!

    The Shu Uemura curler IS awesome. At first, I thought, it's an eyelash curler, aren't they all created equal? NO! SO worth it.

    I've heard all about that cold plasma and WANT to purchase however, it's $150!! Haven't quite bit the bullet on that yet…

    and those beauty blender makeup sponges changed my whole makeup routine! Gone are those triangle sponges, these make makeup look so smooth and beautiful! loved this post!!!
