5 Must-Haves For My Makeup Bag

onthegoThis post is inspired by a major beauty ‘uh oh’ moment I had just the other day. I had rushed out of the house early one morning to start my day and it wasn’t until after I had talked to a few other fellow early risers that I realized I had left out without a drop of makeup on my face. Not only that, I was also missing my earrings. Bad combination! You can do one without the other, but never ever both!

As a self-proclaimed beauty junkie, I am not proud of this mishap, but the best thing you can do with a mistake is learn from it. Right?

Well, friends, I was caught out there with no makeup, no jewelry, a million important things to do, and no idea when I would have time to return home to spruce myself up. The only thing I could find in my purse was chap-stick. Not even a tube of mascara was floating around in my car or purse. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do believe I’m naturally beautiful without makeup added at all, but I had places to go and people to see and this was not the look I was going for on this particular day.


Well, needless to say, I survived the day and, it even felt good to give my pores some rest. It also inspired me to revamp my makeup bag. It will now be complete with everything I need, just in case this happens again. What are you must have products you carry on you at all times.

Sure, there are some days we want to be makeup free, but if that’s not your intention, here’s how to never let it happen.
