I hardly ever wear makeup during the work week. I just put on some mascara (Buxom – Bare Esc) and some lip balm or close and head out. Luckily have pretty nice skin that I can get away with that.

Not much. I usually have a face powder compact with mirror and puff (currently Maybelline Dream Matte powder) and whatever lipstick/gloss I’m wearing that day (or today it’s what I wore yesterday as I’ve not been out today yet). Plus a small pot of Nivea hand cream. If I go somewhere special, I usually take a blush/shimmer powder as well. Don’t see what else I would need.
