If you plan on taking a makeup bag with you, make sure it's a small enough it's enough to fit in your purse, backpack, etc. Mine is by Modella, they have tons of inexpensive, good quality makeup bags.
Here's the inside, it looks like a lot but it's everything you'll need for touch-ups throughout the day or doing a complete makeup look on the go.
Let's start with the non-makeup items first. It's a good idea to keep hairbands and bobby pins with you! I like to keep gum, hand sanitizer, and eau de parfum with me to stay fresh throughout the day.
I only bring one, fluffy powder brush to use for multiple products to save space. I also keep the ever-trusty eyelash curler and oil blotting tissues with rice powder to control oiliness on hand.
I like to bring pressed powder, liquid concealer, foundation faker, mineral veil, and a blusher/bronzer duo to add color to my face without seeming "cakey".
I keep a black eyeliner and a mini tube of my favorite mascara to keep my eyes looking wide awake. I also keep a tinted lip balm for double duty use and a lip crayon for a natural looking pout. 💋
And that's it! To keep a simple, useful makeup bag, all you need are a few basic products and tools to transform your look from dull and drab, to fresh and fab! Thanks for reading! Stay beautiful! 💋
