So the first thing I always carry is a perfume rollerball. I don’t like carrying sticks of deodorant because then you have to excuse yourself to apply it and then it becomes too much of a hassle for me. I like to keep a very light, fresh scent on me to reapply with and to keep smelling lovely all day. This fragrance in particular is from Aerie but I also enjoy this light fragrance called CLEAN.
Now if you have thin brows you might not need this throughout the day but a clear mascara does wonders to keep unruly brows in shape. I like the Wet Gloss by elf and honestly I wouldn’t use anything else because it’s only $1 and it does the job. Definitely one of the items I reach for throughout the day.
I usually carry 3…or 4…or 5 lip products in my school bag but I keep an emergency lipstick in my beauty bag in case I take this out to dinner and I want to reapply after. This is elf’s Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Pink Minx which I prefer to carry because it’s a neutral pink that can go with any eye makeup.
Especially since I’m a beauty blogger I have a lot of mascara samples lying around so I always throw one in my beauty bag. It’s handy if my mascara I applied probably eight hours ago is flaking off or if I only applied a light layer in the morning. This is Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Action mascara.
It doesn’t matter what skin type you are you should always carry a mattifying powder with you. We all get a little oily in the t-zone at least and a cheap colorless powder is a handy product to have to take down the shine quickly and keep it down. This is elf’s Studio Mattifying Powder which I highly recommend. Just be careful to not apply too much otherwise it’ll have the opposite effect.
Lastly I like to carry hair ties but not any hair ties. These are called Lollies but what I love about them is that I can put them on my wrists if I need some extra “jewelry” or arm candy and I have nothing else. It’s all about strategy and double usage with the products in my bag!
So I’d love to know what staples you carry around in your beauty bag! Let me know in the comments below!
