My makeup kit weighs about 40lbs. My everyday bag, yeah it’s heavy, but not THAT heavy. Fortunately the weight of it is due to my rewards cards (it’s a problem) and old Time Out and New York Magazines. I wanted to share with you what I carry with me throughout the day makeup-wise because I would say these things are an absolute must…for me anyway…
I apply them in this order:
Benefit Play Stick in Spin the Bottle (as concealer and everywhere else for rough days)
Studio Fix in C2 on my lids and lips
Liner and Lipsticks (I always carry O from MAC and No Competition from Benefit and Half Red Lipliner)
One neutral eyeshadow and one that has a pop of color (I love Urban Decay for color, Smashbox has gorgeous options if you want a great palette- it won’t fit in your cosmetics bag, but it is gorgeous and versatile)
and some liner.
Ok- now you are all set for emergency skype sessions, and frantic calls to “meet me for a quick lunch” and spontaneous auditions or facebook profile pic opportunities. Serious business, folks.
What’s in your emergency bag?
