Touch Up Bag Must Haves

My Top 4 Makeup Must Haves to Keep in your Touch Up Bag

1. Translucent Powder – to control oil and shine, apply a small amount in a patting motion on the t-zone area (nose, forehead & chin).
My favorite: MAC Blotting Powder

2. Blotting Sheets – use before powdering to absorb excess oils your pores have released and to eliminate shine. An environmentally friendly option: Beauty Blender Blotterazzi; it’s a reusable blotting sponge that absorbs oil and is washable.
My Favorite: Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

3. Q-tips or Almay Q-tips – for touch ups in case your eyeliner, lipstick or mascara smudges, you can use regular Q-tips or Q-tips filled with makeup remover. Use a dry, clean Q-tip to blend out concealer and foundation creasing around the eyes, nose, and mouth.
My favorite: Regular: Q-tips Precision Tips
Filled with Makeup Remover: Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks

4. Lip Color – you will want to keep your lip color in your touch up bag so you can touch up after eating and/or drinking.

Bonus: Hydrating spray to refresh and re-hydrate skin and makeup after touching up. This will help to eliminate the powdery look you can get from touching up with powder.
My Favorite: Mac Fix+
