Contributor Natalie Borton shares a roundup of the must-have beauty buys to have on hand for on-the-go emergencies!
When you’re out and about all day, there’s no reason to haul your entire arsenal of makeup products around in your bag or car. Instead, choose the products that go the distance and give you the most bang for your buck when it comes to touch-ups. We’ve selected three types of products we always have on hand and rounded up specific products to try at a variety of price points. Here are three beauty products that make on-the-go touch-ups a breeze.
- Tinted Brow Gel: Thanks to Cara Delevingne, we are completely obsessed with keeping our brows looking bold and fresh all day long. Brows have the power to change your entire face structure, and we never leave the house without giving ours a little grooming! While on the go, we rely on tinted brow gel to keep our brows in place and looking bold. If you have thinner brows, you might start the day with some pencil or powder to fill in any spaces and do touch-ups with the gel. (Products to try: Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel, Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara, Glossier Boy Brow, Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up)
- Two-In-One For Cheeks & Lips: Even without any makeup on at all, a little color on your cheeks and lips can make a world of a difference, giving you a healthy glow that is youthful and fresh. Having a two-in-one product saves space and makes it easy to freshen up quickly when you’re out of the house all day. (Products to try: Stowaway Cheek & Lip Rouge, W3ll People Universalist Multi-Stick, Nars The Multiple, Sonia Kashuk Lip & Cheek Tint)
- Creamy Concealer: It’s amazing how far your concealer can go to smooth your skin and hide tiredness after a long day of work or travel. Whether you wear foundation or not, touching up a few parts of your face with an ultra-creamy concealer makes you look healthy and awake (even if you feel exhausted!). We tend to focus on the under-eye area and any other spots with redness.
