I’ve been a Stephanie Johnson devotee for years now so no wonder her bags are all I use in my admittedly large, on-the-go makeup stash. Currently, I am loving the new Galapagos Teal Mini Pouch and the Santiago Fiona Dome Cosmetic.
I prefer to keep my skin care separate from my color cosmetics. So my makeup goes in the Mini Pouch and the Fiona stores my skin care touch-up tools. Here is what I keep on hand:
Inside my Santiago Fiona:
I am a big believer that skin care leads to great skin. And, as a result, less makeup is needed. So I keep a couple staples in my purse.
Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre – This French pharmacy staple keeps my winter skin supple and radiant despite the dryness in the air.
Klorane Soothing Make-Up Remover Wipes with Cornflower Water – I can clean up any eye makeup drifts that might have happened during the day without any irritation. And being sans-liquid makes these super travel friendly.
Avene Eau Thermale – My skin tends to get really red. So I use this to calm my skin. Plus it makes a full face of makeup look very natural.
Rohto Eye Drops – These sting a bit, but after a late night there is no better way to fake clear and bright eyes.
Inside my Galapagos Teal Mini Pouch:
Lancôme EFFACERNES Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer – Thanks to my friend from Dallas, this has been my go-to under eye concealer because it doesn’t budge. It is also perfect for big events when you can’t be bothered with touch-ups.
NARS 413 BLKR Illuminator – See the Avene spray above, but you can tell I prefer a luminous and fresh look. This special edition illuminator works on my paler, winter skin perfectly for a lit-within look.
Eyeko Visual Eyes Liquid Eyeliner – Eyeliner is my “desert island” product because my larger eyes need the definition. This liquid is easy to use even in the car and lasts all day.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in Julie – The newest lipstick formula from NARS is moisturizing AND long-lasting – something no one has managed to do well until now. Julie is sweet and youthful. Plus, it is so easy to wear as a soft and pale nude/pink.
