Grab your favorite makeup bag, purse, or clutch for easy access
When deciding on your look, it’s important that you feel good in your clothes and are confident with the way you look. The first thing I recommend is moisturizing your skin because it will help reduce redness and keep make-up looking fresh all day. Next, apply primer to lock down any oils or powders that may cause “cakey” or “crappy” make-up! After this step, go ahead and apply foundation using a sponge technique where the product is applied from one side of face to other. This helps build coverage without adding extra layers over the top.”
Pack up some essentials such as face wipes or moisturizer.
When you’re on the go, packing can be a challenge. But there are some essentials that every makeup artist should pack! I recommend bringing face wipes or moisturizer if you have oily skin and need to touch up your makeup during the day. If not, I would bring a lipstick in case of emergencies where you might need to reapply. Other things include blush, a powder compact/brush, concealer for any blemishes or spots and mascara – all great items to have with you at all times!
Stick an emergency lipstick in your purse
What’s the one thing that you can’t leave home without? Your phone. What about a lipstick for when you’re on-the-go or need to freshen up before heading back out? I’ll be honest, lipsticks are my favorite part of makeup! There’s something so satisfying about applying color to your lips and knowing it will last all day. But, if I’m being realistic, I don’t always have time do a full face of makeup in the morning. So what am I supposed to do without my go-to accessory? Stick an emergency lipstick in your purse or clutch at all times! It sounds silly but trust me – this is going to save your social life more than once during long days.
Keep a mirror with you at all times
It is so important to have a mirror with you at all times, and not just for getting ready in the morning! If you’re out running errands, on lunch break or commuting to work – make sure you have your makeup bag with you. It’s always great to redo your lip gloss halfway through the day or touch up your eye shadow if it starts looking too faded. You’ll be surprised how often this comes in handy!
Face wipes or moisturizer
Is it best to use a face wipe or moisturizer before you leave the house? The answer is both. Face wipes are great for quick, on-the-go touchups and they’re better than nothing but not as good as an oil or lotion that will keep your skin hydrated all day. If you want to invest in one product, try a lightweight water-based moisturizer with SPF protection like Supergoop’s City Sunscreen Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 30. It’ll give your skin instant hydration and help ward off wrinkles while also providing sun protection!
