When putting together a bag for work, few women will forget to pack their wallets and cell phones, but there is often an additional item that many don’t realize they need until it’s too late – a small case of cosmetics in case a beauty emergency strikes.
However, it can be difficult to determine which products are absolutely necessary during a makeup-911 moment. Luckily, the staff at Allure.com recently dished on the contents of their makeup survival kits during New York Fashion Week.
Women can prepare themselves for an inevitable mid-day touch-up by toting a cream foundation. To make application a snap, look for a compact that includes a mirror and sponge, such as Sothys Smoothing Compact Foundation.
Girls should also carry a cream blush – a simple flush of color may help you look healthier and more awake. The website recommends packing a formula that comes in purse-friendly tubes, as they can be applied directly on cheeks and are easy to blend with your fingers, like Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel.
According to the news provider, there are two more products that should be tucked away for a last minute fix – a tinted lip balm and a bright lipstick. The lip balm can condition lips while adding a hint of color, and one coat of vivid lipstick will instantly wake up your face and revamp your look.
