Do you like to carry a lot of cr*p in your bag every day?
Which is why I have my basic workday beauty essentials down to about 5 items (some days I add a few more items in case I have a big meeting or need to transition from work --> date night).
So here are the 5 beauty items that I carry Monday through Friday:
Nothing beats a perfume rollerball. It's genius.
And my favorite scent is this Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I get so many compliments on this scent...and the rollerball just makes it easy to freshen up in the afternoon.
You can't chew gum at work...so mints are essential. These are my favorite mints, but I would love to hear any that you love in the comments below!
BONUS: I throw one of these in my mouth in the afternoon when I feel the urge to snack! Such a simple + easy way to curb the urge for carbs or sugar.
This Chanel gloss is pretty much my go-to at work. And it's so freakin' good that I only have to apply twice during the day since it lasts incredibly well. It may be a little more expensive, but I promise you will love it as much as I do.
I live in the desert. My skin gets dry. And no one wants "Golden Girl skin" before they're 40.
So I carry this rich lotion which quenches my skin and revives my senses (I love the scent...it literally relaxes + energizes me at the same time. Amazing.)
So every morning when I grab my grande black coffee from Starbucks, I always fold my napkin into my purse. Why? Because it literally is better than any facial blotter that I've tried. It doesn't leave the powdery residue and it is...well...free.
What is in your purse that you would add to this list?!
