Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm: It’s no secret that I love this lip balm; I’m sure you’ve seen me parading it around somewhere. It’s one of the only lip balms that don’t make my lips even drier than they started out with. I only need to apply it once in the morning before I do my makeup and then again once at night, right before bed. It keeps my lips moisturized and smooth all day long and the scents are so, so yummy.
Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek: Blush and lipstick products are always the first to fade, so I always like to carry around a combo product to bring my look back to life throughout the day. This hydrating multi-use colour stick has the cutest packaging ever and is really simple to use. All I do is swipe it onto my lips and cheeks, blend out the edges, and voilà! A dewy refresh!
Mac Makeup Wipes: Makeup wipes are great to have on hand because they’re a multi-use product. I use them most often after going out for lunch and dinner because every woman knows how patchy and messy lipstick can get after eating, no matter how much caution you’ve used. Having makeup removers on hand means that you can quickly swipe away any of your leftover lipstick and then reapply it so it goes on evenly. Another great way to use makeup wipes is by fixing or removing a raccoon eye situation if it’s been windy or rainy and your eyes have begun watering. You can even use them to wipe off anything that has gotten onto your clothes throughout the day. So, all in all, makeup wipes are a great emergency-mess-saver to have with you at all times.
Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Intensive Smoothing Hand Creme: We all need a high quality hand cream to keep them looking moisturized, youthful, and healthy. The price tag of this hand cream is undeniably high, however it’s a very rich cream, so a small amount of this product goes a long way; making it last a long time. It leaves your hands and cuticles feeling super soft and smooth and never makes them feel sticky, heavy, or greasy.
Mac Fix+ Finishing Mist: Fix+ is amazing. I don’t just love it for right after makeup application though. I also love to keep it on hand throughout my day, especially if I’ve used a fuller coverage foundation because it gets rid of any cake-iness it may have developed since I put it on. Anytime I feel like my makeup looks too powdery or I simply need a refresh, I spritz this onto my face and my skin immediately looks healthier and more glowy.
