Must-Have Beauty Products for “On the Go”

While there are a plethora of items you could carry in your makeup bag every day, there are only a handful of “must haves” that can get you from feeling drab to fab in just minutes.

  1. Always carry your smaller lip and eye pencils (the ones you were about to throw away). They usually fit quite well in a small cosmetic bag for a quick fix.
  2. A gel pencil can quickly plump up your eye makeup quickly. It glides on easily and evenly over makeup that you have had on for hours.
  3. Clinique’s Chubby Stick Shadow Tint and Lip Colour Balm also provide great options for touch ups without the spillage in your bag!
  4. A compact, if only for the mirror.
  5. Nars, Tarte, Hourglass and Smashbox all make great concealers that are small enough to carry in your cosmetic bag.
  6. For lip and cheek color try Josie Maran’s Argan Color Stick or Nars The Multiple, they never disappoint!
  7. Makeup For Ever Mist & Fix can refresh your skin when you don’t have time to get home for a touch-up. Spray, pat your skin with a tissue and voilà, you’re good to go!
