Whenever you put on your face of makeup in the morning, you can expect to need a touch up at some point during the day. It might be a re-application of lipstick after your morning meeting coffee or it might be a little powder on your nose after lunch. Whatever your beauty touch ups may be, you should always be prepared, because you never know what your day will bring.
But packing your makeup in and out of your bathroom cabinet is frustrating and not to mention heavy when you have to carry it in your handbag. That’s why you need to create a makeup kit to have in your handbag that is light weight, compact and full of everything you need to make sure you keep looking gorgeous throughout the day.
An essential in your handbag is a compact of powder to sweep away any shininess or discrepancies in your base. A great powder will hide smudges that have been made and soak up the oil that starts to hit your face by the afternoon. We love Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay In Place powder for a natural topper to your makeup.
Having a lipstick on hand is a must! If you’re leaving the house wearing lipstick, you want to be coming home wearing lipstick. Touch ups throughout the day are crucial to keep your look on. We love MAC’s Velvet Teddy – it’s the perfect shade for work or play and being matte is quite long lasting. Keep it in your bag for easy touch ups after eating.
Keep a foundation stick in your bag is also a great idea to give your makeup new life for afternoon meetings. A makeup stick like Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick can correct and brighten your makeup and can be applied directly to the face to quick and easy touch ups.
