Beauty Brief. Essentials for Your New and Improved Makeup Bag!

September 23, 2010 • Beauty


After long and careful consideration, I have finally decided to clear out my overly cluttered makeup bag. Therefore, in preparation for this season's gorgeous makeup trends, I have compiled a list of must-haves for your cosmetic tote; in my case it's a suitcase.

Red lipstick. You're not a true makeup addict unless you're equipped with a fabulous rich shade of fire engine red lipstick. Try L’Oreal’s 'Colour Riche Lipstick' in Sunset Red, then prepare to pucker up! (not with me, of course).

Neutral Eye Shadow Pallete. Switch your makeup from day to night in a blink by using your neutral tones to create a sexy smoky eye for happy hour after work!

Lip Balm. For chiller fall days, your lips will require extra moisture, plus the balm will aid in a longer-lasting lip color.

Eye Brow Shaper. Keep your brows in tip-top-shape this season with the Clinique Brow Keeper. This highly-pigmented pencil is easy to use and it comes with its own brush.

Bronzer. Some makeup fanatics chose to only use this cosmetic staple during the warmer months, but I for one am all about the healthy glow year-round. Go one, splurge a little.

Mascara. Simply put; duh! I love LORAC's 'Special Effects' mascara – a double-strand of mascara and eyelash primer. Lengthens, hydrates, and gives you instant 'bedroom' eyes without breaking the bank!

We'd like to hear from you, Second City Style beauties! What are your essential fall must-haves for your makeup bags?
