The beauty products you always need to carry in your make up bag!

Long days are a synonym for retouching in makeup terms. Whenever i know I'll be having a long day I prepare my bag with a few things that i know i will need after a couple of hours.
Unfortunately, i can't bring my everything with me, so i need to choose my favorite products.
 Although i wished i could throw every single lipstick i own and a huge palette into my bag i know that its not practical. I compared my necessities to my fellow bloggers' bags and created this small list that doesn't take much space but will help you out for a flawless makeup any time, especially in the wintertime.

 Firstly: The Mattifying Face Powder
Because most of us get oily throughout the day, especially if you're in a rush and what i usually use is the Purobio Cosmetics Compact Powder, which is weightless, organic, vegan and affordable. I really love it because it's totally invisible when you apply it on the skin.
Bronzer and Highlighter small palette
In case the one you applied in the morning fades out or you need more color to not look tired.

I simply love the small palette of Sleek, since you can carry it everywhere with you and it gives you a such natural look.
Sleek is a great drugstore brand from the UK, and this shimmer "brick" is just as great as the PF Strips. You can hardly tell the difference in shimmer and texture.

 Travel Size Mascara

It's more likely that you will rush out and forget to apply it, but you might need an extra layer later on.

OTHER TIPS

    Concealers in a tube are more hygienic to carry around.
    Chunky lip pencils don't take much space and give you more precision.
    Never throw away perfume samples, always keep one in your bags.
    Pick a mascara that lifts your lashes, this way you don't need to carry your curlers.
    Build up your makeup throughout the day, start with a light look and intensify it later on.
    Throw in some oil removing sheets if you're really oily.
    A powder with a little coverage can be more handy but don't over apply it or else it does look cakey.

I had to try this right, to see for myself and to let you know if this vision and mission of e.l.f. cosmetics is something I agree with.
The palette above is the elf Nude Rose Palette, Its filled with 10 shadows both matt and shimmer and all in the rose gold tones. The shadows have good pigmentation, blend really well and the colours are really pretty. I've been using this palette alot and as its quite narrow its not too big to take away with you or chuck in your handbag.
