Rarely seen, but always around - welcome to the inside of my beauty bag. Also known as my 'oh shit, I'm late for work gotta save my face on the subway' emergency lifesaver. Being a lifelong Allure subscriber and getting some amazing tips from beauty pros during my modeling heyday I've accrued a no fail makeup bag.
Some tips I love to pass along:
1- When in doubt always go neutral. Find your neutrals and stash an eyeshadow and eyeliner in your bag. Not into neutrals, cool me neither; go gold! Shimmery not sparkly please.
2 - Always have a spare hair tie, along with a lint roller, and nail clipper. Having these key essentials have helped save face more than once.
3 - Bronzer and peach (or whichever shade is your natural shade) blush work wonders when without foundation or concealer. They're also great to have on deck for touch ups.
4 - Trial sizes work wonders, have a favorite mascara well then get the trial size. And speaking of mascara, never leave home without it. You never know who you may run into.
Now I want to know, what's in your beauty bag?
