Something I’m always curious about are the makeup products some girls won’t leave the house without. I think it says a lot about a girl’s overall style to see what makeup she keeps in her purse to use in a pinch. I change my purse a lot so I don’t always remember to grab my current lipstick when I’m headed out the door. Luckily, I always have a few key pieces in my bag to get my by.
My number one must-have, won’t leave the house without makeup is Clinique’s Stay-Matte Invisible Matte Pressed Powder. This stuff is amazing because it goes on colorless, so no matter what makeup you used before heading out, this will go on invisible over it for touch-ups. I have been using this for probably 10 years now and will always have this in my bag. I highly recommend it if you get shine throughout the day.
I definitely don’t leave the house without Pixi’s Shea Butter Lip Balm. This is the best lip balm ever. It has great color which lasts forever and bonus is really moisturizing for your lips since it’s made with shea butter. If you have dry lips or get really dry lips from lipstick, then this stuff is made for you. I also love it because it’s so low-maintenance. You don’t need a lip liner or anything that sounds like work to have a little color on your lips. My personal favorite is Pixi Pink because it’s a really bright pink and immediately makes me go from corpse to land of the living even on my worst day.
If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably realized I like the red wine. Red wine is great. It tastes delicious, doesn’t give me a huge headache, and makes me look like Sofia Vergara. I do not love that everyone can tell I’ve been drinking red wine by my teeth. So I ALWAYS keep these Wine Wipes in my purse. They are made by someone we should obviously grant sainthood to. They are just wipes, think shout but OK to put on your teeth, that literally just wipe the wine off your teeth. These will change your life, order them.
I absolutely always keep red lipstick with me at all times. I work in a professional day job, so I always have on lipstick to look pulled together. Once you find a go-to color, it becomes the easiest part of your routine and requires no thought. Red lipstick is my favorite classic look. A red lip goes with basically any outfit and immediately ups your game at work.
I know at lot of women don’t always wear lipstick or don’t remember. There are days I’m busy and in back to back meetings, but I will always have lipstick on which is why I keep this NYX Cosmetics Extra Creamy Lipstick with me at all times. I love the Eros shade because it’s the perfect bold red for my skin tone. The best part is that it’s around $4. I don’t know why you wouldn’t wear lipstick for that price. Just remember that nothing is more intimidating than high heels and red lipstick.
