Question of the Week: What must have beauty products are in your purse right now?
I cleared out my purse and picked out some of my must have beauty products. This isn’t a staged photo – this is really what I have been carrying around with me wherever I go!
Of course I never go out with my sunglasses, and I hate using sunglasses cases, so I usually end up with heavily scratched frames. These are Fendi, but most of the time I am happy with my $15 sunglasses from Target (easily replaceable)! I also have a Lara Bar for low blood sugar emergencies.
I don’t go anywhere without hand cream. I prefer to have SPF in my hand cream to protect my hands from premature wrinkles and age spots (and skin cancer!), which is why I’m crazy about Supergoop Hand Cream with Sea Buckthorn SPF 40. It’s hard to find hand creams with SPF for some reason, but especially hard to find them with this level of SPF. It’s not greasy, but it does take a minute to soak in. It smells like lemon verbena, and it’s small enough to fit into a pocket in my purse. I’m 100% sold on it!
I love my Tarte Quench Lip Rescue from the Rainforest of the Sea collection. First of all, the packaging is adorable. It’s basically a non-greasy cooling, vegan lip balm with a slight tint, which is perfect when my lips are chapped and I want a little bit of color.
Dr Hauschka has a new line of color cosmetics, and I’m obsessed with their warm red lipstick in #10 Dahlia. If you have yellow/warm undertones, you will LOVE this red. It’s so easy to wear. And, it’s made with natural ingredients that are good for your skin.
I originally brought this Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm with me on a flight across the country to see if it helped my travel stress (air travel always stresses me out). It was so nice to stop, breathe for a minute, and put a little bit of this cooling aromatic essential oil blend on my temples. It’s really nice for headaches as well (which I get constantly). Since it was such a hit on the plane, I decided to keep it with me at all times for a quick stress-buster when I’m out and about.
And last but not least, my favorite pressed powder for pale gals – Vampyre’s Veil by Manic Panic!
