Here are 5 essential makeup items for every makeup bag, no matter your lifestyle.

Everyday Makeup Bag Essentials for Commuters

Commuting can be extremely exhausting, especially when toting around a 2-pound makeup bag. When running to catch a train or hailing a cab, a heavy makeup bag added to a laptop and lunch can get extremely heavy.

  1. Concealer to hide your lack of sleep.
  2. Powder Foundation for a dusting of light coverage.
  3. Mascara for making the eyes POP.
  4. Highlighter so you can be a glowy goddess.
  5. Lip + Cheek Tint to add some color to the face.

      Makeup Bag Essentials for Working From Home

      Showing up to a small digital square on everyone’s computer does not warrant the same get ready time as it used to. Yes, we still want to look presentable. No, we do not have to worry about hiding every visible pore on our faces. As great as technology is, no one’s camera quality is that good.
