Minimalist Makeup bag

For those of you that wear makeup, what do you keep in your bag? What do you consider "minimal" or do you even feel it is important to be minimalist in that area?
Just thought it would be fun.

Re: Minimalist Makeup bag

I have actually been wearing makeup the last few months (it goes in spurts). I wear foundation, mascara, a little eyeliner on the bottom lashline, and brow powder Very simple

Tinted moisturizer, mascara, and lipstick. When I wear it, which is only a couple of days a week.

Neutral eyeshadow, mascara, and gloss. Blush and eye liner if I feel especially fancy. I never learned how to do foundation.

This. I've been working on throwing away more and more stuff from my makeup bag. Sometimes I feel like I wear something just to rationalize having it, where I know that if I threw it out I'd never again want that shade. I have no many lipstcisk that I never wear.

Mascara

Pencil eyeliner - thinking of switching to a marker style because I forget to sharpen it

Lip balm - blistex deep renewal *this stuff is AWESOME* but untinted need to find a good lip stain

Loose powder n brush- I thought it could hold up to the purse since it was compact n the brush fit inside but no, powder everywhere! Need a better option. Doesn't bare essentials make a twist up one?

Spot concealer -so cheap but I couldn't do without it now! little wand applicator like lip gloss works great for hiding my dark eye circles. Thinking about mixing eye cream n powder to put in the bottle to get it out of my moisturizer graveyard.
