If there’s one thing I love it’s makeup, (those who know me are thinking DUH) but what really gets me is what it’s carried in. This Boulevard Bag is the cutest. I received it as a bridesmaids gift and we all went crazy over the “hello gorgeous” and gold monogram. It hold’s the perfect amount of “on the go” essentials. Even for someone like me who has a lot of “essentials”.
In my bag you will always find Purell. Nothing fancy about that, just practical. Especially during the school year… I practically bathe in that stuff. I love the bareMinerals Refillable Buffing Brush with translucent powder. It is so easy to clean and easy to refill. I take this with me everywhere. I always have some type of bronzer with me. Just to add some color. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been at work then something comes up and I need “freshen up” without time to run home. Ahh, the exciting life of a teacher, ha! The Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess is just the right amount of color (no shimmer!) without being overbearing. Chapstick and pink lipgloss is also a must. My go to lip balm is Kiehls. It’s cheap and has a tiny bit of SPF to protect my lips. Also keeps my lips super soft. Butter London and Laura Mercier are two of my favorite lip glosses at the moment. The Lippy is super pigmented and gives more of a lipstick/gloss look and the Laura Mercier gloss in Babydoll, is pretty sheer. I always wear the LM lipstick in Tangerine, under the LM gloss. Evian spritzer is also a must for this Dallas heat. It also works as a way to touch up my makeup. I spray this on my face then pat with a kleenex before applying the bareMineral translucent powder. Works like a charm! Emi Jay hair ties are also a must. You will always find one on my wrist and one in my bag. What are your on the go essentials?
