It’s that time again, long hours back at school, lugging books around and taking notes for those lackluster classes. So now, you are busier than ever and always on the go. You’re scrambling to put an ounce of makeup on in the morning but realize you don’t have time, you throw what you can into your school bag and later realize the worst has happened. Instead of bringing items to brighten your makeup-less face, you brought a bronzing brush with no bronzer and a foundation too dark for your skin tone.
To help you with this daily dilemma, we’ve put together a list of items perfect for an on-the-go look. Keep these items in a school bag, in your car, or even in a locker for a quick touch up and you’ll never have to scramble for makeup again.
First, you’ll need a makeup bag. On Amazon we found this N. Gil Large Travel Cosmetic Pouch Bag big enough to store all your products while small enough to throw in a bag.
Once you have your bag, it’s time to fill it with all of the necessities!
We recommend adding 5 products to your beauty bag that will ease your busy lifestyle.
- Your Everyday Foundation
Makeup Forever’s Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation is a compact that includes a mirror and a sponge, easy for applying your foundation on-the-go.
