What’s In My: Makeup Bag Edition

A small makeup bag in my purse is a must. You just never know where life might take you, whether it be a need for a quick touchup midday or perhaps a spontaneous date after work.  Wherever life takes me, I’ll be there fresh and ready for new adventures.

First things first, a touch of color, a smooth canvas and healthy lips. Look no further then Baby Lips by Maybelline, in the shade Rose Addict. I have one in the car, one in my purse, one on the nightstand and one in my office. #obsessed

L’oreal’s Paradise Extatic mascara is my go to drugstore mascara. Don’t let the “drugstore” part fool you, because this is as close to a holy grail mascara you are going to get for that price. It lengthens, separates and is a product you can build on. Whether you would like just a hint of volume or a dramatic look, this one miracle bottle got it all.

I always have at least two shades of lip color with me. This balm stain by Revlon in Honey Douce is as pretty as it is hydrating. Make-up Designory’s lip glaze in Bare is the perfect nude meets a hint of shine. Love!

For the all too familiar lunch-o-clock-shine, I reach for Make-up Designory’s Loose Powder in the shade Zero. This translucent miracle powder, has become a game changer for me. Bye bye shine! No more creasing, no caking and no shiny T zone.

When I’m out and about, I like to keep a hand sanitizer with me, for you know… I’ve tried a lot of great ones, but I always seem to come back to this one by L’Occitane. The soothing scent of lavender always gets me.

Hand sanitizers are great don’t get me wrong, but they do tend to dry my hands sometimes too. That’s when I like to moisturize with non other then L’Occitane’s Lavande Hand Cream. What can I say? I’m a sucker for french lavender.

Favorite Lip Products

Since I work from home, do school run twice a day and have a three year old wrapped around my waist at any given time, it’s safe to say that I choose shortcuts any which way possible. I am the queen of domestic hacks! Makeup however is one thing I like to take my time and apply it properly. On days however where I run behind schedule and don’t have the time to sit at my vanity and play around with cosmetics, my go to is always lip products. Hydrated lips and a hint of color, makes me feel complete enough to venture outdoors with my head up high. Here’s a few of my all time favorite lip balms.
