Blogstar entry: beauty neccessities
Do you own a beauty bag? Carry it in every handbag? No matter where you go it's always with you? I would answer YES, YES and YES! A beauty bag has saved my beautiful life more times than I can count and I'm here to say it will save yours too!
What happens if work has asked you to rush off somewhere for an event or meet a client and you have no touch-ups? What if your face is so dry your makeup is flaking off and that saucy delivery guy is coming in today? Or perhaps, like myself, it's the day you run into that bitch from high school and you want to look freaking amazing to make her incredible jealous as long as she shall live?...too far? Well, a few neccessities in a pretty coloured baggie with help you in these situations.
# Add a miniature sized dry shampoo can into the bag. If you hit the gym during your lunch-hour this will be your ticket to freshly washed hair without the soap, water and effort!
# Pop some bio-oil into your leopard print makeup sack to hydrate your skin and body during the winter season. It leaves the skin with a glowing complexion.
#Ever look washed out? Keep a cream pink blush on-hand for the moment you realise you haven't applied enough blush on or need to re-touch. I love b collection by Bloom Creme Blush.
Hand cream is vital to a woman's beauty routine! Our hands must be looking smooth and feeling supple 24/7.
A lip gloss is a necessity, I'll give you no option here. You can opt for a nice shiny balm instead, so your lips are protected and look FAB. I love Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss.
I will leave you with the mother of the beauty bag...is the suspense killing you?...it's foundation! Ok, I'm not influencing you to apply more foundation on top of foundation...that's a mistake we should never make. The pancake look is sooooo out! But, touch-ups are a must. Just something compact and light (with a mirror) that can wipe away anything that has landed on your face (what a lovely surprise...not!) or to apply where makeup up has been wiped away. Possibly from sweating, eating or drinking. I love MAC Compact Creme Foundation.
What products do you have in your beauty bag?
