There's nothing worse than a getting a last minute invite for cocktails after work and not having anything to touch up the morning's makeup application before heading out. It feels nice to brighten up your eyeshadow again or add a pop of color to your lips before grabbing a seat at your favorite watering hole. There's also those other times when a pimple appears right during the middle of the day and you can't stand looking at it and need something to cover it up with. The thing about makeup on the go is you shouldn't have to carry a full size version of everything you used that morning at home. The necessary staples and a few sample size products (which come with a lot of gifts with purchase) are all you need.
|L-R: MAC lipglass fashion punch, Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick 09, Miracle Skin Transformer Vanish, Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal, Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 Face|
|L-R: Covergirl Simply Powder Classic Ivory, Nars Bronzer/Blush duo Orgasm/Laguna, Josie Maran Beautiful Eyes beautiful nudes, L'Oreal 16 hour infallible Never Fail eyeliner Carbon Black|
|T-B: Real Techniques Powder Brush, Smashbox Contour brush (gift w/ purchase size), Studio Gear dual ended brush (gift w/ purchase), Jimmy Choo rollerball|
These products are always in my purse and they have saved me more times than I can even count. I also don't feel like I have the entire makeup drawer in my purse either, which if I did, that could get a little heavy. What makeup items do you have to have in your purse at all times?
