On-the-Go Make Up Must Haves

We all doll up in the morning in hopes that our freshly made faces will last the work day. Unfortunately, we all know that at some point our eye makeup is going to run, our t-zone is going to shine and that freshly-applied look is going to fade. So I present to you my small collection of makeup that saves me at 2:00pm everyday!

I love my metallic BareMinerals make-up bag

Here are the products I carry everyday for a mid afternoon pick me up:

Blotting sheets, lip gloss and Chapstick.

The blot sheets are a lifesaver, I use these first to remove any excess oil from my forehead, cheeks and chin. This particular brand has a light powder finish on each sheet so in addition to blotting away oil, it re-applies a fine film of powder to help you make it through the remainder of the day shine free. A simple, shiny lipgloss and Chapstick are always a must 🙂

Concealer and Q-tips

I broke the top to my Benefit Boi-ing concealer, but I swear by this stuff, so a make-shift plastic bag to transport works just fine. Q-tips I keep to remove any eye makeup smudges.

A mini- NYC shadow palette

I like this compact because it is super small and coordinates well with the bronze-y colors I usually apply in the morning. The small brush is included so it’s perfect for a mid day touch up.

Sally Hansen natural beauty pump foundation and an NYC bronzer. Almost time to replace these products!

I bought this Sally Hansen Natural Beauty pump foundation on a whim, but it has turned out to be one of my favorites! It has amazing converge and I love the pump top- no sponge or brush required for application. I am addicted to my Hoola, and use it in the morning but the NYC bronzer works fine mid-day to add a hint of color.

A capped kabuki brush, BareMinerals mascara, Mary Kay eye liner and NYC lip pencil

I like that this brush is capped because it keeps the interior of my makeup bag and the other products clean. As I mentioned in my mascara review post, I’ve recently fallen in love this BareMinerals product so I can’t help but take it with me. The Mary Kay eye liner is a simple black, twist crayon- it was an extra I was able to spare for my mobile makeup bag. Kind of random, but I love lip pencils! I have such tiny lips so any opportunity to make them look bigger, I’ll take advantage of. I like to use a slightly darker color 🙂

These products are all fairly inexpensive, which is why I don’t mind toting them all over the place for touch ups. I save my more expensive, fragile makeup for at -home applications only.

What make up must-haves do you carry daily?
