There are so many articles and advice tips on which makeup items to put on before you leave the house, but what about on the go touch ups throughout the day? I know, I know- if you use the right primers, products, whatever you won’t need to touch up. Sometimes though you do need to freshen up midday, just to wake yourself up a bit and feel less wilted. These are all items I carry in my purse for on the go touch ups to freshen up when I’m out all day or night!
1: Replica Beach Walk
I love rollerballs for applying when your signature scent has faded (or you forget to put it on before leaving the house- purse backup for the win!). This one has “bergamot, pink pepper, lemon, ylang ylang, coconut milk, heliotrope, musk, cedar wood.” What does all that mean? It reminds you of your favourite quiet moment on the beach- including a slight hint of sunscreen! (In the winter I switch this out for Elizabeth and James Nirvana Duo.)
2: Living Proof Control Hairspray
If my hair is down nothing refreshes it midday like flipping my head over, a quick spray of this, and then back up! It adds volume and texture without getting tacky, or stiff.
3: Makeup Forever HD Pressed Powder
This .7 oz pressed powder takes away any midday shine, and is the perfect tiny on the go size. I love that it’s “clear” which means you are shine free, but don’t look like you have powder caked on!
4: Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes
Nothing will make you feel fresher and cleaner than a quick wipe of these coconut milk and essential oil clothes. They smell divine, but not over bearing and give you that just showered feeling- even if you’ve been dancing the night away.
5: Wet Brush Mini
Have you tried the original Wet Brush? It’s the only brush that works with my rat’s nest of hair. I swear you look at it and it snarls back sometimes. I love this mini version for when I want to put my hair up midday but it’s too tangled to underneath to work with; it’s magic.
6: Dr. Rescue by Baby Lips
This under $3 product is infused with eucalyptus and a touch of menthol for soothing chapstick that is uber moisturizing. I probably have at least 20 of these floating around- I always lose my chapsticks (which is always a lovely surprise when I find one unexpectedly.) I love lipstick and lipgloss, but midday nothing is better than good ol’ chapstick to revive your lips.
How do I manage to keep all these things in my bag and organized (not to mention easily switch them from bag to bag- let’s be honest, the bag changes with the outfit)?? A cute little on the go makeup bag! These hold all your essentials and are super cute when you pull them out to freshen up.
They are all just too cute! I love when you can get a set of three, perfect for organizing so many things. One for the purse, bedroom, and bathroom!
Happy Monday loves and I hope this week is phenomenal to each of you.
