You leave home early in the morning looking fresh and put-together, only to find yourself fading as the day wears on. While you don’t want to lug around your entire beauty arsenal everywhere you go, taking along a few key items is a must. Along with lipstick and blush, here are some more beauty essentials that should accompany you every day.
Every woman should have a go-to lip balm in her arsenal. Dry, scaly lips are unattractive and uncomfortable, but a moisturizing lip balm can sooth angry skin and boost appearance tenfold. Once you find a favorite brand, buy a few tubes and keep one at home, one in your car, one in your purse, etc., so you’re never caught short.
This tip is particularly important right now, as most people are washing their hands a lot more and using sanitizers regularly. While these practices help you avoid harmful germs, it can do a real number on your skin. Follow up all hand washing sessions with some light, airy moisturizer that will absorb into your skin without leaving a heavy, greasy feeling behind.
While sunscreen has a reputation for being a summer beauty essential, it should be a part of your arsenal all year long. Sun exposure can still cause damage during the winter, particularly when skiing, snowboarding, or sledding. A good sunscreen will be your friend all year long and should be reapplied often on days when you’re spending many hours outdoors.
Concealer is ideal for quickly covering up emerging spots, lightening dark circles, and hiding other skin imperfections so you can be confident in your appearance. For a seamless match, undereye concealer should be two shades lighter than your skin tone, while facial concealer should be as close as possible to a perfect match. After applying and blending concealer, use a setting powder to keep it in place all day long.
Dealing with oily skin is a real hassle. Even if you leave home looking fresh, oils can accumulate on your skin throughout the day and spoil your make up. Blotting papers are the perfect thing to clear up your skin when away from home. They’re capable of absorbing excess oil without affecting the rest of your makeup and are small enough to be stored just about anywhere, including your pocket.
