One product you’ll always be sure to find in my bag is the Milani Matte Lipstick in the shade Innocence. This creamy lipstick paired with a nude lip pencil works for around the office during the day or around the city at night. It’s subtle and sexy!
Another item that I’m sure to keep in my purse at all times is my They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara from Benefit, because you never know when your lashes will need some love. It gives me the right amount of volume; especially on my fresh face days when I don’t feel like wearing a lot of makeup. I just coat this on and go!
My NYX Illuminating Stick serves as my highlight/blush to add a little shine on the go. It’s my bronzer, blush, highlighter, and sometimes even my chapstick. Whenever I need to add a touch of glow, this is my go-to product!

There’s nothing that I adore more than a classic and timeless look that can transfer from day to night without flinching! For a girl on the go, such as myself, I never really know when I’m going to need to pull out the heavier artillery. Wanna know how I pull it together?
For evening affairs, I generally love to play up my lips! What better way to do this than to apply a ruby red pout? Red is strong, prominent, and immediately gets boundless attention. When done right, a red lip can turn heads quicker than you’d believe or even realize. This one is a must-try… TRUST ME!
My bag also always comes equipped with a black coal eye pencil. I love using the blackest of blacks in tone in order to really play up the drama around my eyes by either creating a smoldering smoky eye or a dramatic wing. And, if I’m feeling really frisky, I might even add a faux mole or two to the mix!
Last, but not least, I could never leave the house without my portable rollerball perfumes! These little numbers definitely come in handy for those times when I need to quickly touch up my body scent.
My preferred scent is Clinique’s Happy, but sometimes i’ll switch it up.

There are daily essentials every girl must have in their bag that can take them from the cubicle to the happy hour spot. This is my struggle on a weekly basis to find products that are suitable enough to get the perfect happy hour look without stopping home from work.
The NYX butter glosses are the perfect gloss to tie any look together. Whether I’m meeting with coworkers for a drink after work or a new bae for a date, this gloss never fails me. Not only is it travel friendly and can fit in any of my small makeup bags, but it’s also very affordable in price. It’s super pigmented, non-sticky formula can be easily applied throughout the night.
The Elf Smudge Pot cream eyeshadow helps me quickly perfect my milder glam looks. It’s soft, gel-like consistency works extremely well for swift finger applications. The smudge pot glides on smoothly, is long lasting, and no matter what the hue, works well with all skin tones and types. At the affordable price of $3; there’s no way you’d lose!
My number one item to have in my bag is mascara and nothing gives me better volume, longer-wear, or a more gorgeous lash line than Too Faced’s Better than Sex Mascara. Who needs false lashes when you’ve got this product in your bag?
This mascara can be purchased in travel size, too, so you never have to worry about items not fitting in your bag. Fairly priced at an economical $12, Better Than Sex mascara is, well… Better Than Sex!
