What's In My Beauty Bag - Basics

Beauty Bag Series

baby lips, neutrogena shine control, elf blotting sheets, eos lip balm - the beauty puff

In The Beauty Puff's new Beauty Bag Series, we will look at products that are purse and  travel-friendly and help you look beautiful on the go!  These items change throughout the season and for different occasions, but here are the basics found in The Beauty Puff's Beauty Bag!

Maybelline Baby Lips in Petal Rebel

This is one of the Spring 2015 Limited Edition shades of Baby Lips, but I have put a number of the shades from this line in my purse.  I like that they are easy to find in my bag with their vibrant colors and are easy enough to apply that you rarely need a mirror.  Whether you want a hint of color or a clear balm, there is something for everyone in the Baby Lips line of products!

Too much of this (or any) powder is not a good thing.  I find for light touch-ups, it is perfect for shine control when I am on the go.  I replace the puff in the compact every so often so it stays clean and I am minimizing the transfer of germs.  Covergirl makes very reasonable powder puffs that I buy for this purpose.  They fit in the compact very well and help apply just enough product.

I typically blot my face about halfway through the day.  If I find I need additional coverage or if a product fades, that application will follow.  I never apply any additional products without removing excess oil from my face first.  For this, I love the Elf blotting sheets that I find at Target.  For just $1, these blotting sheets are an easy and affordable beauty tool to keep in your purse, on your vanity, or even in your car.

EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

You can never have enough lip products in your purse!  I always have an EOS lip balm in my bag because they are easy to reach for and can be applied without a mirror.  These little beauties are on my vanity, in my purse, practically everywhere.  They last an incredibly long time as well, I think I have only used up one!  They are the perfect addition to your beauty bag for any season!

What's in your beauty bag?  Stay tuned to see products that are perfect for on the go in The Beauty Puff's Beauty Bag Series!
