Not much really. Blotters, mirror, lipbalm, done. Honestly, I usually forget the first two. And the makeup bag. I just put a lipbalm in my pocket. xD

I don’t really carry a lot of makeup with me. I always have hand sanitizer, hand cream, eye drops, oil blotting sheets, a mini mac 129 for powder, mac studio fix powder to touch up, and the lip products that i used that day (which is usually just a lip liner and lipstick).

The only thing I have to carry with me at all times is a lip balm. No particular one. Just whatever I happen to grab that day.

I carry MAC powder, whatever lipstick I am wearing that day, NARS orgasm blush, mirror, retractable kabuki and a travel size Kat Von D perfume (saint).

MAC Blot Powder, whatever lip gloss I used in the morning, eyeliner… the basic things that need touching up.

A pink and a reddish coral lipstick ( currently Mac’s A Rose Romance and Mac’s Crazee,) a dazzleglass ( Mac’s Internationalist), a blush ( Flirt), & a glass nail file.

Burt’s Bees Lipbalm and my go-to lipstick, MAC’s Syrup! I don’t ever touch up my makeup because I never seem to have time. So I keep pills and hand lotion and a mirror in my small makeup bag as well.

Oil blotters, lip balm, a compact mirror and loose powder. Then I bring whatever eyeliner and lipstick I used on that day.

mac marine life powder

1.LIPBALMS!!!! 2.CONCEALER! <—- these two things I carry AlwWAYS cause they fit even in the smallest bag. If I carry a bigger bag then I throw my little "just in case" make up bag which contains also a pencil eyeliner for brow touch ups, blotting papers(during the summer mostly) and a pocket mirror. or any specific products I m wearing that day that need touch ups. a teasing comb used to be included but its whereabouts are questioned

In my small makeup bag, I have my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy, Carmex, Estee Lauder Beautiful Touch On perfume pen, anti-bacterial hand gel, eye drops, tweezerman, asthma inhaler, and MAC Cremesheen in Creme Anglaise.

I usually only need the lipstick/gloss I’m wearing, but I do carry a small makeup bag just in case. I keep a mini mascara (usually Clinique), a lip balm, a neutral lip gloss, mini versions of UD 24/7 Eye Pencils, blotting papers & a concealer pencil. I find that the most helpful things to keep in your bag are really tweezers, a nail file, band aids & antibacterial hand wipes.

I do the exact same thing. I don’t have a little makeup bag for touch ups or anything. i have my rose bud salve tube thingy in my pocket or bag for application and IF i remember a lipstick/gloss haha πŸ™‚

l’occitane hand cream, lip balm, mini benefit rsvp cream shadow just incase i need a quick color on the eyes, and whatever lipstick/lipgloss i’m wearing for the day

I ALWAYS have mascara! and pencil eyeliner for tight-lining and my liquid liner for touch ups. plus whatever lipstick I am wearing that day. and of course blotting paper and lip balm as staples.

Don’t use a makeup bag either! But I toss concealer (if I have blemishes) and whatever lipstick I’m wearing that day. If I’m not wearing any l ipstick, I just carry around lip balm. Easy & low maitnence !

Whatever lipstick/gloss/stain/tint I’m wearing for the day, my SoftLips lip balm, my pressed powder, and eyeliner. That’s it!

Non-makeup stuff includes hand cream, a hand mirror, hand sanitizer, etc.

I bring my everyday makeup with me in my makeup bag but some essentials include: my current lipstick and lipgloss, MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner, MAC MSFN, a kabuki brush, a day-to-night neutral smokey quad, volumizing mascara, hand sanitizer, and a small bottle of perfume, and a black pencil liner

I’m so 80s. I always have a compact on me (MAC.) I also always have my trusty LaBello blue chapstick on me.

I don’t carry a makeup bag, but I’ll keep a few things in the smallest pocket of my purse for touchups throughout the day. What ever lipstick I’m using that day, MAC blot powder, and L’Occitane lavender hand cream. That’s about it!

I don’t carry a ton of things just a standard pink lipgloss that I have in my purse which is MAC’s Nymphette and whatever lip product I’m wearing that day.

Just the lipstick I’m already wearing! For the last few days my favorite has been MUFE #39 πŸ™‚

1. mirror
2. small comb
3. blotting paper
4. tissue pack
5. lip balm
6. hand sanitizer
7. bobby pins
8. sunblock
9. the lipstick and/or lipgloss/lip brush i used that day
10. a maxi pad!

I always have blotters, hand sanitizer, compact, lots of lipglosses and lipstics, hand cream, travel set of brushes, a sample of perfume in case I forget to use it before I leave house (I feel naked without my perfume πŸ™‚ ) and a black eyeliner. No wonder my purse is so heavy :-/

foundation, mirror, powder, mascara, eyelash curler, hand sanitizer, lip balm and a light pink lipgloss. the rest I can live without :))
(oh and a founadtion and powder brush obviously πŸ˜‰

Quite little, actually. I carry pressed powder for blotting and lipstick/lip gloss I happen to be wearing that day. But I tend to forget the previous lipgloss/stick in my bag so there can be several.. πŸ˜‰

Staples in my daily mu bag are: pressed blot powder, beauty powder, black eye pencil, lip balm, neutral lip stick, hand sanitizer, mini deo spray, q-tips, comb, pair of mini tweezers, tampons, bobby pins, hair ties.
Not in my make-up bag but somewhere in my purse: hand lotion, tissues and mints.

I don’t carry my make up around unless I’m traveling. But I always have with me lipbalm and the lipstick or gloss I wear at that moment, hand sanitizer and especially during summer mac fix+.

I tend to just throw half the makeup I used for the day’s look in my purse…I always bring concealer, powder, and a kabuki brush, but I often have things I don’t even need in there, like mascara. My Naked Palette usually comes with me, along with at least 2 lipliner-lipstick-lipgloss combos. Really need to cut down on that.

EOS lip balm, Rosebud salve, Covergirl Champagne Eyeshadow (my all-time favorite shade), mascara, liner, and a good pressed powder (right now I’m using Benefit’s).

I keep blot powder/sheets, a mirror, floss, gum, hair ties, lip balm, and Hue by MAC in there at all times. Otherwise, whatever else that ends up in there is based on where I’m going!

I keep a large-ish makeup bag with me, but the only makeup-type stuff inside it is lip balm and whatever lipstick I’m wearing that day. The other stuff is contact lens solution, dental floss, my vitamins, migraine medication, hand lotion and extra batteries for my headphones.

I am almost Always running late so I Always carry a makeup bag with essentials in my purse. Concealer (only for under my eyes, my dark bags are hereditary), powder, 224 brush, brow pencil, brow brush, 2 masceras, an eyelash curler and usually a lipglass if not I always have Burt’s Bees lip balm with me.

For the Summer, since I work at a pool and never ever wear makeup to work, I carry concealer, Rosebud Salve, Cha cha tint and waterproof mascara in my purse in case I decide I need to go somewhere after work.

I don’t carry a makeup bag, I just throw everything in my bag. I also always have sunscreen and my Proactive body pads, which are great if you are sweaty and can’t take a shower

I just carry Mac faux lipstick and a nude lipgloss even if i started out with a different lipstick.

I don’t carry too much makeup in my purse. Just Burt’s Bees chapstick, the lipstick I’m currently wearing, and the UD eyeliner I’m wearing to touch up my waterline. However, when traveling my makeup bag is another story.. full beyond capacity! πŸ™‚

I don’t carry a makeup bag, just toss whatever lipstick/gloss I’m using that day into a zippered section in my bag. I usually have a nude or clear lipliner in there, in case I’m wearing something that bleeds. I also carry one of the L’Oreal HIP tinted balms and a tin of Burt’s Bees cuticle cream.

In my office desk drawer I have a more stocked makeup bag just in case I need to do a touchup or plans change and I have to go from the office to some kind of event. I keep a few Sephora Nano eyeliners in different colors, some concealer, a black mascara, a Neutrogena mineral foundation with built-in brush, an e.l.f. neutral eyeshadow palette, a nude lipliner, and a few Sephora glosses in basic colors. Basically, anything I’ve replaced in my home kit with an upgraded product more or less makes it into the office drawer.

Blotting powder, lip balm, lancome le krayon khol in black ebony, and BeneFit Some Kinda Gorgeous-not an amazing product overall, but perfect for touchups!

I also don’t carry a makeup bag with me. I just carry a compact mirror, oil-blotting sheets, and a neutral spare lipgloss in my purse.

I carry my lipbalm,lipgloss,mac studio fix powder,my too faced retractable kabuki,blotting papers,blush brush and my blush because mine wears off really quickly sometimes in 3-4 hours even cream blush when set with a powder blush/:

oil blotting sheets, studio fix powder (which i use for touch ups with the sponge), a 129sh brush, mocha blush, beauty rush lipgloss in guava girl, hue lipstick, maybelline falsies mascara, 24/7 liner from urban decay, chapstick and nivea’s lip balm. lol it’s a lot

Usually just the lip product(s) of the day, a mirror, and a sample vial or two of perfume for me. Though invariably I’ll have my Viva Glam Gaga II in there no matter what else I may have worn that day simply because I wear it almost all the time.

Oh, and lip balm. I usually have at least two with me, and also sometimes sunscreen depending on where I’m going. (If it’s mostly indoors, then no sunscreen, but if I’m looking at a day spent mostly outside, then sunscreen is a must. However, I see no reason to wear more than the usual SPF put on as part of my daily routine if the most sun exposure I get is maybe half an hour total spent in the car.)

I don’t carry my makeup bag with me, but I do always have to have lip gloss or lip balm and I won’t leave the house without mascara.

lol I used to have my purse jam-packed with lipliners, a compact, baby powder, bobby pins, and what not. lol but these days I have eos chapstick, a mirror, and my favorite perfume.

My makeup bag contains: crystal file, cuticle oil pen, travel-sized tube of hand cream, pressed powder (I alternate between MAC Careblend & CRC Oil-Control, depending on how my skin is behaving), Too Faced flatbuki, stub of MUFE aqua eyes in black, Jack Black lip balm, and whatever lipstick/stain/gloss I’m wearing that day.

Blot paper, press powder, MAC peachstock lipstick, any MAC dazzleglass, lipbalm and 1 powder blush.

I always have to have a pencil eyeliner. I don’t like how my eyes look without my waterline lined, and we all know color doesn’t last long there, even with the most longwearing liners, so that’s why πŸ™‚

I don’t really carry makeup around except for the lip products I use that day. I do however have some essentials I always take with me: Jack Black lip balm, Hello Kitty band aid (LOL), gum, some cash just in case, a couple Excedrin migraine pills, Band Aid friction block stick, Sephora Hello Kitty mirror, and L’Occitane hand cream. Sounds like a lot but it all fits in a medium-size Coach wristlet I can put in my bookbag, purse, or carry alone!

I really don’t carry makeup around with me. I usually just keep chap stick and MAC’s Honeylove which is a nice, neutral every day colour πŸ™‚

At least one mascara, one or two glosses, and a lip balm and I should be set. Either a gloss or a lipstick to use as blush, too. πŸ˜€
