Hi Ladies! Long time, no post!
So today I thought I would show you all what necessities I keep in my makeup bag for school. In my town specifically, the weather seems to change daily during the fall season. One day you're in shorts and a tank top sweating profusely and the next day you're in a sweater wishing you were curled up in a ball in bed. Our school is also very awkwardly heated so some rooms are much hotter then others. Keeping makeup easily accessible in my backpack gives the the opportunity to do little touch ups throughout the day to make sure I'm looking and feeling my best.
The first thing I have is a mini bottle of lotion. I always make sure I have lotion with me because I get dry spots on my face and specifically around my nose that get really flakey in the fall, so when I get the chance to put a little lotion on it to sooth it i do. I sometimes get the chance when Im changing for gym :)
The next thing I like to keep with me at all times is at least one concealer and a powder. When it's hot in school, I sometimes get a little sweaty or shiny and my makeup starts to fall apart by the end of the day. If I notice that I have a blemish that popped up or I'm starting to look a little shiny I can fix that real quick and not feel self conscious.
For lips I always have a few chapsticks and lip glosses that are thrown around in my bag because you never know when you're gonna need them. ;) Lip products are my favorite! Also if I plan on wearing a certain lipstick that morning I would throw it in my makeup bag to do touch ups as I see needed.
Another thing that I ALWAYS have in my bag is a mini mascara. Mascara is one thing that I cannot live without, I wear it everyday and I think its a good thing to keep in your bag in case you are going out after school and need a little extra something to look more put together. My favorite is the Benefit They're Real Mascara. It's amazing! I think even one extra coat of mascara can make any girls eyes POP!
Other things that I like keep in my makeup bag for school is a mirror *for obvious reasons :)*, oil absorbing sheets, tissues, a nail file and hair ties. This makeup bag also kind of works as a mini emergency kit as I just tend to throw anything I think I might need into it. I like to be prepared for the worst. :)
I hope you guys enjoyed this little show and tell and let me know in the comments below what kind of things you guys like to keep in YOUR makeup bags for school. :) Have a great day!
